GGI collects two kinds of information from this Website: (1) your voluntarily provided personal information; (2) anonymous non-personal information.
(1) Personal Information
GGI does not automatically collect personal information, such as name, address, phone number, email address and other personally identifiable information, from its visitors (“Personal Information”). From time to time, GGI will collect Personal Information that is voluntarily provided by its visitors in filling out contest entry forms and subscribing to newsletters and other activities carried out on the Website.
GGI will only collect and use such Personal Information solely for the purpose(s) disclosed by GGI at the time of collection and only after the visitor has voluntarily agreed to such collection and use, by clicking “I agree” on the online form or in writing if entering via faxed or mailed form. GGI also sometimes use email addresses that have been voluntarily provided by its visitors to respond to visitors who communicate with us, to inform winners of contests or to subscribe to newsletters. All emails from GGI to its visitors include instructions on how to discontinue receipt of emails, newsletters and other communication from GGI and visitors can discontinue such communication at any time. Email addresses from visitors who wish to discontinue receipt of GGI’s emails will be removed from GGI’s distribution list and databases. All Personal Information that may identify a visitor and has been collected with the visitor’s consent by GGI is not disclosed in any identifiable form to any other party outside the company except for the fulfillment of the specific purpose identified to the visitor at the time of collection. However, GGI may disclose such information in anonymous, aggregated and non-personally identifiable form to other parties for marketing, advertising or other purposes and to better understand visitor’s use of the Website. At any time, a visitor may send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to request that Personal Information be changed, removed or updated in GGI’s databases. Visitors should exercise caution when they disclose personally identifiable information on bulletin boards or chat rooms on this Website or any other website. Such areas are accessible by anyone and may result in the visitor receiving unsolicited messages from other people and/or companies.
(2) Anonymous Non-Personal Information
When visitors visit the Website, anonymous, non-personal information about their visit is automatically collected. Such information may include the length and date of the visit, how the visitor navigated the Website, what pages the visitor viewed, the type of browser being used by the visitor, the type of operating system used by the visitor and the domain name of the visitor’s Internet service provider. GGI uses this Anonymous Non-Personal Information to track the success of its Website with its visitors and to better tailor the Website to visitors’ needs and interests. This Anonymous Non-Personal Information may be shared with other parties, such as broadcasters, advertisers, sponsors and partners.
Protection of Visitors’ Personal Information
GGI protects the Personal Information it collects with appropriate technological, physical and administrative safeguards to protect it from unauthorized disclosure or use. Access to Personal Information collected by GGI is limited to authorized individuals and stored on its databases, which are protected by firewalls and are password-secured. GGI retains the Personal Information only for as long as is required for the purposes identified at the time of its collection and consented to by the visitor providing it or as otherwise required by law.
Once Personal Information is no longer necessary for the purposes consented to by the visitor, it is GGI’s practice to delete it from its databases or systems or make it anonymous.
