1. What information do we collect?
We may collect PII when users access, install, use, purchase or register for any Services, respond to communication such as email, or participate in another feature of the Services. You may visit the Site without providing PII. We may use IP addresses and session identifiers to analyze trends, to administer the Site, to track user activities, to infer user interests, and to otherwise induce, deduce, and gather information about individual users and market segments.
Like many websites, we may use “cookies” to enhance your experience and gather information about visitors and visits to the Site. Please refer to the “May we use ‘cookies’?” section below for information about cookies and how we may use them.
Because there is not yet a common understanding of how to interpret web browser-based “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) signals other than cookies, we do not currently respond to undefined “DNT” signals to the Site.
2. How do we use users’ PII?
We may use users’ PII in the following ways:
• To personalize users’ experience with the Services and to allow us to deliver the type of content and product offerings in which users are most interested.
• To allow us to better respond to customer service requests.
• To process users’ transactions.
• To administer a promotion, survey or other feature of the Services.
• To provide, analyze and enhance the Services.
3. Do we disclose users’ PII to outside parties?
However, non-personally-identifiable user information may be used or provided to third parties for research, development, commercialization, advertising, or other purposes.
4. Correcting/Updating Personal Information
You can correct or update your PII by sending an email message to email@example.com or by updating your profile, if applicable.
5. May we use “cookies”?
We may contract with third-party service providers to assist us in better understanding the users of the Services. These service providers are not permitted to use the information collected on our behalf except to help us conduct and improve our business.
You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser (like Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer) settings. Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies. If you turn cookies off, you may not have access to many features that make your Site experience more efficient and some features may not function properly.
6. Safeguarding Users’ PII
GTC follows generally accepted industry security standards to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security and correctly use users’ PII. However, no commercial method of information transfer over the Internet or electronic data storage is known to be 100% secure. As a result, we cannot guarantee the absolute security of that information during its transmission or its storage in our systems.

9. Important Notices to Non-United States Residents
It is important to note that the Site is operated in the United States. If you are located outside of the United States, please be aware that any information you provide to us will be transferred to the United States. By using the Site and/or providing us with your information, you consent to this transfer.
10. Your California Privacy Rights
Under California’s “Shine the Light” law, California residents who provide personal information in obtaining products or services for personal, family or household use are entitled to request and obtain from us once a calendar year information about the customer information we shared, if any, with other businesses for their own direct marketing uses. If applicable, this information would include the categories of customer information and the names and addresses of those businesses with which we shared customer information for the immediately prior calendar year (e.g., requests made in 2015 will receive information regarding 2014 sharing activities).
To obtain this information from GTC, please send an email message to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Request for California Privacy Information” on the subject line and in the body of your message. We will provide the requested information to you at your e-mail address in response. Not all information sharing is covered by the “Shine the Light” requirements and only information on covered sharing will be included in our response.
11. Children’s Privacy
Except as otherwise set forth in or permitted under a GTC Agreement, we do not knowingly intend to collect PII from children under 13 years of age. If a child has provided us with PII, a parent or guardian of that child may send an email message to email@example.com with “Request for Child Information Removal” on the subject line and the name and age of the child in the body of the message. We will then make reasonable efforts to delete the child’s PII from our applicable database.
