As used in this Policy, the term “personal information” means information that specifically identifies an individual (such as a name, address, telephone number, mobile number, e-mail address, or credit card or other account number) or information about that individual when directly linked to personally identifiable information. Personal information does not include “aggregate” information, which is data we collect about the use of the Site or about a group or category of products, services or users, from which individual identities or other personal information has been removed. This policy in no way restricts or limits our collection and use of aggregate information.
We may collect certain information you voluntarily provide to us which may contain your personal information, such as your name, user name, address, billing address, shipping address, email address, telephone number, other contact and demographic information, and credit card number. Personal information may also be collected if you provide such information when you register or establish an account on the Site, complete a survey, fill out a sales form or otherwise provide information to us in connection with the Site.
When you use the Site, some information may also be automatically collected, such as your Internet Protocol (IP) address, your operating system, the browser type, the address of a referring web site, and your activity on the Site. We treat this information as personal information if we combine it with or link it to any of the personal information mentioned above. Otherwise, it is used in the aggregate only.
We may automatically collect certain information through the use of “cookies” or web beacons. Cookies are small data files that are stored on a user’s hard drive at the request of a Web site to enable the site to recognize users who have previously visited them and retain certain information such as customer preferences and history. If we link cookies to any of your personally identifying information, we will treat this information as personal information. Web beacons are small, invisible graphic images that may be used on the Site or in emails relating to the Site to collect certain information and monitor user activity on the Site.
If you wish to block, erase, or be warned of cookies, please refer to your browser manufacturer to learn about these functions. However, if a browser is set not to accept cookies or if a user rejects a cookie, some portions of the Site may not function properly.
In general, we use personal information we collect to process your requests or transactions; to provide you with products or services you request; to inform you about new products or services or upcoming events; to customize the content and/or layout of the Site pages for each individual user; to facilitate your use of, and our administration and operation of, the Site; for general purposes relating to the Site or Global Glimpse; to verify or enforce compliance with the policies governing the Site and applicable laws; to protect against misuse or unauthorized use of the Site; and for the purpose for which the information was provided.
We will not share the personal information we collect from you directly or through this Site with third parties except as described in this Policy, as it may be revised from time to time. We may share personal information with vendors, consultants and other service providers (“Service Providers“) used by us in connection with the operation of the Site or the services we provide and who need access to such information to carry out their work for us. We are not responsible for the actions of Service Providers or other third parties, nor are we responsible for any additional information you provide directly to those Service Providers or other third parties, and we encourage you to become familiar with their practices before disclosing information directly to them. For information about your choices regarding the sharing of your information, see the section below entitled “Your Choices.”
We may disclose personal information in the good faith belief that we are lawfully authorized or required to do so, or that doing so is reasonably necessary or appropriate to comply with the law or with legal process or authorities, respond to any claims, or to protect the rights, property or safety of Global Glimpse, our users, our employees or the public, including without limitation to protect Global Glimpse or our users from fraudulent, abusive, inappropriate or unlawful use of our Site. If you send us a notification of claimed infringement under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, any personal information in your notification may be shared with the person or entity who you claim is infringing your copyrighted material. Information about our users, including personal information, may also be disclosed or transferred as part of, or during negotiations of, any merger, sale of company assets, financing or acquisition or in any other situation where personal information may be transferred as one of the business assets of Global Glimpse.
You understand that when you use the Site, information you post in your profile, blogs, listings, public or private groups, forums and other interactive areas of the Site, as well as any information you share with individuals through the Site, will be available to other users and in some cases may be publicly available. We recommend you be cautious about giving out personal information to others or sharing personal information in public or private online forums in your use of the Site. We are not responsible for the actions of any third parties with whom you share personal information.
Online Information Security
We have endeavored to put into place and maintain reasonable security measures in an effort to protect the security of your personal information while it is under our control. For example, when we collect credit card information, we use a secure server with Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption software. Additionally, your account information is accessible online only through the use of a password. Please be aware, however, that despite our efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. To protect the confidentiality of your personal information, to the extent you obtain a password for access to the Site, you must keep your password confidential and not disclose it to any other person. You are responsible for all uses of our web site by any person using your password. Please advise us immediately if you believe your password has been misused or misappropriated.
You may “opt out” of receiving marketing or promotional communications from us, by following the procedures in the emails you receive or by contacting us at the email address below. This will not affect our ability to send you service and account related emails or to use your personal information as otherwise described in this Policy.
If you have any questions or comments about this Policy or our practices relating to the Site, or you wish to verify, correct or delete any personal information we have collected, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org we will endeavor to respond to your inquiry or to correct, update or remove the personal information you have provided us as you indicate.
