GPMATIC PRIVACY POLICY

Date Posted and Effective Date: December 07, 2017

GPMatic.com Privacy Policy

GPMatic.com Inc. (“GPMatic.com” or “we”) owns and operates various websites (“Sites”). GPMatic.com wants you to feel comfortable using the Sites, so we have created this Privacy Policy to inform you of what information we may collect from you on the Sites and how we may use that information. It also describes your choices regarding use, access and correction of your personal information. Please take a moment to review the terms of this Privacy Policy. By using the Sites, you agree to accept the terms of this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy, please do not use the Sites. This Privacy Policy applies only to information collected on the Sites. It does not apply to information that we may collect by means other than on the Sites.

I. Personal Information

A. Active Collection and Use:

In order to access the Sites, services and the information available on the Sites, you may be required to register with the Sites and provide some personal information, such as your name and email address. If you provide us with personal information, we will retain and may use that information to contact or respond to you. We may also use personal information to customize the services we provide to you and to ensure compliance with GPMatic.com policies and applicable laws. We may share your personal information with our partners. Our services collect, store and process this personal information on servers in the United States of America.

B. Aggregate Information and Passive Information Collection:

From time to time, we may collect general, non-personal, statistical information about the use of the Sites, such as how many visitors visit a specific page on the Sites, how long they stay on that page, and which hyperlinks, if any, they “click” on. We collect this information through the use of technologies such as “cookies” and “IP addresses,” which are discussed in greater detail below. Our system may also automatically collect operational information about the technology you use, such as your browser, type of computer, operating systems, internet service providers and the domain name of the Sites from which you linked to our Sites. We collect this information in order to determine which areas of the Sites are most popular and to enhance the Sites for visitors. We may use this information for security purposes, to detect and to block security breaches and to provide you with a safe online environment. We may also share this information with our partners.

C. IP Addresses:

An IP address is a number that's automatically assigned to your computer whenever you're surfing the web. Web servers, the computers that “serve up” web pages; automatically identify your computer by its IP address. GPMatic.com collects IP addresses for purposes of system administration, to report aggregate information to third parties and to track the use of the Sites. When visitors request pages from the Sites, our servers log the visitors' IP addresses. It is not our practice to link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, which means that a visitor's session will be logged, but the visitor remains anonymous to us. However, we reserve the right to use IP addresses to identify a visitor when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with the Site's policies or to protect GPMatic.com, the Sites, its visitors, or others.

D. Cookies, Beacons and Successor Technologies:

We partner with a third party to display advertising on our website or to manage our advertising on other sites. Our third party partner may use cookies or similar technologies in order to provide you advertising based upon your browsing activities and interests.

Cookies are pieces of information that a website transfers to an individual's hard drive for record-keeping purposes. Cookies make web-surfing easier for you by saving your preferences while you're at the Sites. The use of cookies is an industry standard -- you'll find them at most websites. By showing how and when visitors use the Sites, cookies help us see which areas are popular and which are not. Information such as the total number of visitors and pages viewed is most easily tracked with cookies. We may use the information from cookies to make improvements and updates to the Sites and to tailor our services to our visitors' needs. For example, the Sites allow visitors to increase the font size of the text contained on the Sites to make it easier to read. Cookies enable the Sites to automatically use your preferred font size the next time you visit the Sites. You have the option of disabling cookies using your browser preferences. Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. You can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, please be aware that some features of the Sites may not function properly or may be slower if you refuse cookies. To manage Flash cookies, please click here.

Sites pages may contain electronic images known as web beacons-also referred to as single- pixel gifs-that permit GPMatic.com to count users who have visited those pages and for other related website statistics-(e.g., recording the popularity of certain website content and verifying system and server integrity). Web beacons are not used to access your personal information on the Sites; they are solely used to compile aggregated statistics concerning the use of the Sites. Web beacons collect only a limited set of information including a cookie number, the time and date of a page view, and a description of the page on which the web beacon resides.

In addition to the foregoing, we use Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting (implemented based on Display Advertising), which will track certain personal information of yours. Information collected about you is limited to age, gender and affinity categories. If you would like to opt out of the collection of such information you may do so by clicking here. Further, Google has a browser plugin (for Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera) that prevents your data from being collected and used by Google Analytics. You can download the plugin by clicking here.

E. User Data Supplementation:

We may receive information about you from other sources, including publicly available databases or social media sites, combine this data with information we already have about you. This helps us to update, expand and analyze our records, identify new customers, and provide products and services that may be of interest to you.

Examples of the types of personal information that may be obtained from public sources or purchased from third parties and combined with information we already have about you (for the purpose of creating more tailored advertising and products), may include:

  • Purchased marketing data about our customers from third parties
  • Data and other information available publicly on social media sites

F. Do Not Track Signals:

At this time we do not have the ability to comply with any setting within your web browser that would send “do not track” signals or other similar technology that would provide consumers the ability to exercise choice regarding the collection of personally identifiable information.

G. Processor Disclosure:

Any personal information we obtain on the Wdesk platform is conducted under the direction of its Clients, and we have no direct relationship with the individuals whose personal data it processes. If you are a customer of one of our Clients and would no longer like to be contacted by one of our Clients that use our service, please contact the Client that you interact with directly. We may transfer personal information to companies that help us provide our service. Transfers to subsequent third parties are covered by the service agreements with our Clients.

II. Disclosure of Personal Information

A. Personally Identifiable Information:

We may use information collected via these Sites to improve the content of our Web Sites, to customize the Sites to your preferences, to communicate information to you (if you have requested it), for our marketing and research purposes, to ensure you are no longer contacted in the event you unsubscribe from marketing campaigns, to market future available software of relevant interest to you, and for any other purpose specified.

Except for the limited situations discussed in this Privacy Policy, we will not share your personally identifiable information with any third parties. We may sometimes use third parties to perform certain services for us, such as hosting the Sites, sending postal mail and providing data analysis. We may provide personally identifiable information to those businesses when that information is necessary for them to respond to your requests or otherwise perform their duties. These companies are authorized to use your personal information only as necessary to provide these services to us.

B. Legal Notice:

In certain situations, GPMatic.com may be required to disclose personal data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.

We may also disclose your personal information as required by law, such as to comply with a subpoena or other legal process, when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request. If GPMatic.com is involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our website, of any change in ownership, uses of your personal information, and choices you may have regarding your personal information. We may also disclose your personal information to any other third party with your prior consent.

As GPMatic.com develops, we may buy other businesses or their assets or sell our business assets. Customer information is generally one of the business assets involved in such transactions. Thus, in the event that GPMatic.com or all of its assets are acquired, or in cases of liquidation, dissolution, reorganization or other transfer of the business, customer information, including any visitor information collected through the Sites, may be one of the transferred assets.

Finally, GPMatic.com reserves the right to disclose visitor information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) GPMatic.com rights or property, other visitors, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. GPMatic.com also reserves the right to disclose visitor information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it. However, we will have no liability for disclosure of information obtained due to errors in transmission or the unauthorized intervention of third parties.

C. Aggregate Information:

We may group information into aggregate visitor data in order to describe the use of the Sites to our existing or potential business partners or other third parties, or in response to a government request. However, please be assured that this aggregate data will in no way personally identify you or any other visitors to the Sites.

III. Links to Other Sites

Please be aware that when you are on the Sites, you could be directed to other sites that are beyond our control. There may be links to other sites from the Site's pages that take you outside our Sites. These other sites may send their own cookies or other tracking technologies to visitors collect data or solicit personal information. The privacy policies of these other sites may be significantly different from this Privacy Policy. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of these other sites and cannot guarantee the security of any of your personal information collected there.

IV. Security:

Protecting the security of your personal information is very important to us. When you transmit personal information from your PC to our servers, your information is protected by both a “firewall” (a combination of computer hardware and software that helps keep unauthorized visitors from accessing information within our computer network) and industry standard SSL (secure socket layer) encryption. Once we receive your transmission, we will take reasonable precautions to ensure its security on our systems. While we utilize all of our security and data protection preventative measures, the internet is inherently insecure. As a result, while GPMatic.com strives to protect your personal information and privacy, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you disclose or transmit to us online and cannot be responsible for the theft, destruction, or inadvertent disclosure of your personal information.

Users are required to sign-in to specific secured areas of GPMatic.com Sites and services using a user ID and password. These authenticate the user and are designed to safeguard against unauthorized access and use of a user's account. The user ID and password are used on a secure web page and encrypted when transmitted over the internet.

The safety and security of your information also depends on you. If you have access to password-protected features, never share your password with anyone else, notify us promptly if you believe your password security has been breached, and remember to log off of this site before you leave your computer. Similarly, any personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data that you disclose through online forums hosted on the Sites, may be collected and used by others. We recommend caution when giving out personal information to others in these public online forums.

If at any point you suspect or become aware of a security incident (i.e. your password is stolen or you receive suspicious communication from someone holding themselves out to be a GPMatic.com employee or from a fake website claiming to be affiliated with GPMatic.com), please forward the communication to us or report the incident by email to contact@gpmatic.com .

V. Privacy Policy for Children:

We do not knowingly collect information from children under the age of 13 on the Sites. If you are under the age of 13, please do not provide any personal information to us. If we become aware that we have collected personal information from a child under the age of 13, we will make commercially reasonable efforts to delete such information from our database.

VI. Changes to These Terms:

The terms of this Privacy Policy may change from time to time. We will notify you of any material changes to this Privacy Policy by posting a notice, on the homepage of the Sites for a reasonable period of time after such changes are made, that this Privacy Policy has been updated, and by changing the “Last Modified” date at the top of this Privacy Policy. We encourage you to check this page periodically for any changes. Your continued use of the Sites following the posting of changes to these terms will mean you accept those changes.

VII. Access and Review of Your Personal Information:

Our services collect, store, and process personal information on servers in the United States of America.
