Effective as of July 1st, 2012.
THE INFORMATION THAT WE COLLECT
The information we gather falls into two categories: (1) information (for example, your name, and e-mail address) that you voluntarily supply when you register to access certain areas within the Site or to use the Services, and (2) information gathered on usage patterns and preferences as visitors navigate through our site. In some cases, a vendor or affiliate of ours collects the information on our behalf. Our vendors and affiliates who are acting on our behalf have their own specific privacy policies which apply to the information that they collect.
Registration Information. Although Glasdon generally does not collect personally identifiable information (e.g., information that enables us to identify you individually) from visitors who simply access the Site but do not seek to engage in any transactions or ask to receive communications from us, we may make certain features of the Site subject to registration requirements. In connection therewith, you may be asked to provide certain information about yourself, such as your name, mailing address, e-mail address, username and password. We may also offer you the option to voluntarily submit your name, mailing address and/or email address in order to subscribe to Glasdon publications, newsletters or other communications through which we update you on Glasdon’s products and services and other matters of interest. If you subscribe to such publications or updates, you will have the ability to opt out of further communications in accordance with procedures that will be described in each issue of such publication or update
Browser Level Information and IP Addresses. Our web servers automatically collect limited information about your computer configuration when you visit the Site, including but not limited to the type of browser software you use, the operating system your computer is running, the resolution of your computer monitor, the website that referred you. We use this information to deliver our web pages to you upon request, to tailor the Site to the interests of our visitors, and to measure traffic within the Site and the Services. We, or our web site hosting vendor, also may collect your IP address, a numerical address that is used by computers connected to the Internet, to identify your computer so that data (such as the web pages you want to view) can be transmitted to you. We also use IP address information for systems administration and trouble shooting purposes. Your IP address does not tell us who you are.
USE OF INFORMATION
Website Usage Information
The website usage information (e.g., log files, cookies, Internet tags, web beacons, etc.) we collect from you will be used to (a) monitor the operation, technical functions and quality of the Site, (b) compile general statistics regarding use of the Site, and (c) analyse demographic and geographic information about the Site’s users. We may also use such information for research or improvements to the Site.
DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION
We do not sell or otherwise share the information you provide to us through registration or other personal information with third parties for marketing, sales or other commercial purposes. We share your information with third parties only in the limited circumstances described below, in which we believe that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to provide the service, legally required or permitted by you.
- We may be required to disclose personal information pursuant to lawful requests, such as subpoenas or court orders, or in compliance with applicable laws. We do not reveal information unless we have a good faith belief that an information request by law enforcement or private litigants meets applicable legal standards.
- We may share personal information when we believe it is necessary to comply with law, to protect our interests or property, to prevent fraud or other illegal activity perpetrated through the Site, or to prevent imminent harm to any person or group of people. This may include sharing information with other companies, lawyers, agents or government agencies.
- We may share personal information with our affiliated entities within the Glasdon Group of Companies, including our parent company, Glasdon Group Limited, and such information may be stored on servers in the United States or in the United Kingdom.
Search Engines and Other Sites
Search engines and other sites not affiliated with Glasdon, such as archive.org or google.com, may crawl the Site and make available to the public publicly-available content and postings from the Site. The Site may also contain links to other websites. Glasdon is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other web sites. Glasdon encourages its visitors and users to be aware when they leave the Site and to read the privacy statement of each website they visit.
CHOICE AND ACCESS TO YOUR INFORMATION
If you register with us or our third party shopping cart provider, you will have the opportunity to review, update, or delete the information you have provided us at any time (excluding any information that we do not store) by accessing the Account Maintenance page. If you remove your registration information completely, you may not be able to engage in transactions with Glasdon via the Site or use other features of the Site that require registration. You agree that we, and/or our shopping cart vendor, may use your information to contact you for purposes of customer service, to inform you of important changes or additions to the Site or the services offered over the Site and to send you administrative notices or any communications relevant to your use of the Site or purchase of Glasdon products or services. If you have subscribed to one of our email newsletters or to other non-administrative correspondence, you will always have the opportunity to unsubscribe from future mailings (for example, by clicking on an unsubscribe link in an email newsletter or by going back to the Site).
SECURITY OF INFORMATION
The Site is not directed at children under 13 and we will not knowingly allow anyone under 13 to provide us any personally identifying information; if you are under 13, please do not provide any information about yourself on the Site.
