- Information We Collect
You may have the option to share your personal information on our Site when registering for services, communicating with us and/or communicating with others. Following is a summary of the information we collect during such interactions with the Site:
(a) Site Registration. When accessing some areas of the Site, registration is required before certain content and features can be accessed. Our registration forms may request your contact information (such as your name, email address, mailing address, etc.), demographic information (such as your country, gender, etc.), profile data (such as your listening/viewing preferences, etc.) and User Information (as defined in the Terms). You may be assigned a site username and/or password. For our internal purposes, we use this information to communicate with you and provide the services you have requested, and to provide a more personalized experience on our Site. By visiting our Site, you affirmatively consent to our collection and use of your data.
(b) Communications from Us. Registered users of the Site may receive newsletters, email communications, or communications through other channels for, among other purposes, the promotion and marketing of a product or service from GBM, and we may also offer other visitors to our Site the opportunity to sign up to receive such information. When there is a separate sign-up for newsletters, we ask for contact information such as name and email address, and, sometimes, demographic and profile information. By visiting our Site you affirmatively consent to our collection and use of your data. We use this information in the same manner as we use the contact information in the registration process described above. We may offer our users the choice whether to receive mailings from others that we think will be of interest. Recipients of our mailings can unsubscribe by following instructions that may appear at the end of email communications. Note that in order to keep our registered users informed about the operation of our services, we may send emails and announcements that are needed for the proper functioning and administration of our Site and service.
(c) Communications with Us. GBM may have or implement features where you can submit information to us (such as when contacting us with a question or feedback). We may retain your emails and other information you submit to us for our internal purposes, and to help us to serve you better.
(d) Communications with Others. GBM may offer features where you can send information to others. We will use the contact information you enter to send the information requested.
(e) Contests, Sweepstakes and Surveys. GBM may also have Promotions, such as contests, sweepstakes and surveys at our Site. When you enter or participate in them, we request contact information from you (such as your full name, email address, mailing address, and telephone number) and may also request demographic or profile information. We will use the information you provide for the purpose of conducting the Promotion (for example, to contact you if you have won). We may also use the information to send you newsletters and other information we think may be of interest. Recipients of our mailings can unsubscribe by following instructions that may appear at the end of the email communication. Any personal information we collect may be associated with registration information. We may share aggregate information with others. We may sometimes partner with sponsors in offering Promotions and may share (provide and receive) information with them. By entering or participating in such Promotions, you affirmatively consent to our collection and use of your data.
The GBM Site may have features that automatically collect information from users to assist us in creating a Site that honors our users’ preferences and serves their interests and needs. Portions of the Site use “cookies”, which are small data files containing information about the user that are stored on the user’s hard drive. Some cookies are used to make login to our sites easier (such as by remembering usernames and passwords). Cookies can also enable us to track users’ movements and target their interests to enhance their experience on our Site. It is important to note that many web browsers, such as Chrome, Safari and Firefox, allow you to modify your settings to block cookies entirely, alert you every time they are being sent, or allow their use by only those web sites you choose. Through the use of web logs or log files, we may also gather information such as the date, time, browser type, navigation history, and IP address of all visitors to our Site. We use this information for our internal security audit log, trend analysis, and system administration, and to gather broad demographic information about our user base. We may associate this information with your personal information. By visiting our sites, you affirmatively consent to our collection, use, and distribution of your data.
- Disclosure of Information
GBM does not sell or lease the information you provide to third parties. GBM, however, does use other companies, agents, or contractors to perform services on our behalf. For example, GBM has partnered with third party companies, to provide infrastructure and IT services, personalize and optimize our application, process credit card transactions, provide customer service, collect debts, analyze and enhance data, including user’s interaction with our website, and process consumer surveys. In the course of providing such services, these third party companies may have access to your information. We do not authorize these companies to use or disclose your personal information except for the purpose of providing the services we request of them. By visiting the Site you affirmatively consent to our collection, use and distribution of your information.
GBM may use the information you provide to: (a) process orders, requests and payments, and to communicate with you about your accounts or any requests, orders, or payments; (b) provide requested services to our customers; (c) respond to any inquiries submitted to us and to provide technical support to customers and Site visitors; (d) adapt the content and information that we may provide to Site visitors to personalize experiences at the Site; (e) better understand how users access and use our Site and services; and (f) detect violations of applicable policies.
GBM may share (provide and receive) aggregate information, which is not personally identifiable, with others. This information may include demographic data such as the gender and/or geographic location of groups of users, but it will not include personal information (such as your name or email address). We use aggregate demographic information about our audience in order to improve our service, for research purposes, marketing/promotional purposes and/or for industry reporting purposes, among others.
- Data Collection from Children/Minors
GBM strives to comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). We do not knowingly collect personal information from U.S. children under 13 without appropriate parental notice and consent. We are committed to protecting children’s privacy. For more information from the Federal Trade Commission about protecting children’s privacy and activity online visit: https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/topics/protecting-kids-online
While the Internet and data transmission over the Internet is not 100% secure from intrusion, we maintain commercially reasonable physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your User Information. However, regardless of our efforts and the Device you use to access the Site, it is possible that third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions, private communications or other personally identifiable information.
“Phishing” is a real security risk on the Internet today. This involves a third party who attempts to steal a user’s personally identifiable information and/or financial account credentials through “spoofed” emails (e.g., emails that appear to come from GBM) that lead consumers to a non-GBM website, or otherwise respond in a manner that is designed to trick recipients into divulging Information such as credit card numbers, account usernames, passwords and social security numbers. GBM DOES NOT SEND EMAILS ASKING YOU TO PROVIDE OR CONFIRM CREDIT CARD NUMBERS, SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBERS OR YOUR USERNAME OR PASSWORD! If you receive such email communication, please forward it immediately to the Site’s Privacy Administrator at firstname.lastname@example.org, and then immediately delete the fraudulent email from your computer.
