Use of your information for research or internal purposes
In order to improve the Services and develop other Services, GGI may utilize information obtained from you via the Services for its internal business purposes such as product development and/or for research purposes, including any other use authorized by you. These activities may include, among other things, improving our Services and/or offering new products or Services to you or performing quality control activities; conducting data analysis that may lead to and/or include commercialization with a third party.
A. Information Collected by GGI.
In order to perform the Services, we may collect personally identifiable information (“PII”). Depending upon the jurisdiction within which you reside or operate, PII may have differing definitions. Nonetheless, PII is information that can be utilized to reasonably identify an individual, and may include, but is not necessarily limited to, information about an individual such as name, user ID, password, address, date of birth, or genetic information; provided, publicly available information, de-identified data, and/or aggregate data may not be considered PII. To the maximum extent possible, GGI de-identifies and aggregates data when PII is being utilized for purposes other than rendering Services to you, and often even when rendering Services to you. De-Identified Information is information that has been stripped of PII, so that an individual cannot be reasonably identified, and aggregate information is information regarding a group of people and cannot be reasonably linked to a particular individual.
B. How GGI Collects Information.
We collect information provided by you when you access any of GGI’s Services. We may also collect information from third-party providers. Further, GGI may utilize either the information collected directly from you or third-party providers to infer certain characteristics about individuals. To the extent an applicable data privacy law so requires, GGI will afford to you those rights, typically including, but not necessarily limited to, the right to know who GGI shares your PII with, the right to opt-out of such sharing, the right to correct inaccurate PII, the right to delete your PII, the right to access your PII and/or obtain a copy of the same, the right to limit the use and sharing of your PII, and the right to have an authorized agent act on your behalf. To exercise any such applicable rights, please contact: Jeffrey Rothchild, firstname.lastname@example.org, to exercise any applicable right, GGI will require identity verification.
C. How GGI Uses Your Information.
GGI does not sell PII. Subject to applicable law, GGI uses your information for internal business purposes such as: Performing contractual obligations between you and GGI, improving or developing new Services, internal security, internal auditing and verification, debugging, contacting you regarding the Services, investigate and/or enforce any violation of the Terms or applicable law, conduct research, and comply with legal requirements. GGI only retains PII as long as necessary to provide the Services or to comply with legal obligations or for legitimate lawful business purposes.
D. Who GGI Shares Information with.
Subject to applicable law, we share information with our service providers who help us provide the Services. Such service providers enter into agreements with GGI to protect the confidentiality and security of data, including PII. You may direct GGI to share your information with anyone you so choose. PII may also be shared internally with subsidiaries and affiliates of GGI when necessary and permitted by law. GGI will not otherwise share or sell any PII and will not disclose PII to any governmental agency, absent compliance with appropriate legal process. GGI may also utilize PII to enforce GGI’s Terms or to protect the rights of GGI, its affiliates and employees, and the public. GGI abides by any legally binding specific requests regarding the sharing, storing, or deletion of PII unless the same interferes with a legitimate business right of GGI.
E. How GGI Protects your Information.
GGI utilizes physical, technical, and administrative measures to prevent unauthorized access to the Services and relevant data, including PII. Nonetheless, protection of your passwords and login credentials are your responsibility, and GGI disclaims any and all responsibility for breach of the Services or PII via your failure to protect your own information.
F. EU Compliance.
If you are a resident of the EU or participating state in the EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) we process PII based upon consent, legal obligations, and/or legitimate interests to protect GGI’s rights and the rights of third-parties or other customers of GGI. You may have the right to access, delete, correct, or withdraw your consent, or have your data ported to you. You can verify the ability to exercise these rights by contacting: Jeffrey Rothchild, email@example.com.
G. Updates to Privacy Terms and Conditions.
Any revisions or updates to these Privacy Policies will be posted on our website, and your continued use of the Services is to be considered consent to any revisions or updates to these Privacy Policies.
