HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION
DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION
We may share aggregated, non-personally identifiable information about you with third parties. This information is anonymous, statistical information that reflects usage of the Site and does not include your Personal Information. We may use your email address to send messages relating to GatherSmart, from which you will have the ability to opt-out.
We will not share your Personal Information with others, except as indicated below.
- We may share Personal Information with service providers, such as data management providers, promotional managers, remarketers, or other similar partners performing services on our behalf. Third-party service providers with whom we share Personal Information will be required to use that information only as needed to provide the services they are providing to us;
- We may disclose your Personal Information in connection with a merger, acquisition, or liquidation of GatherSmart or sale of certain assets, to any third party involved in such transactions, including those who may be located outside the United States, and in connection with business negotiations with respect to any such transactions.
COOKIES, CLEAR GIFs, AND USAGE DATA
Like most Sites, we may track use of the Site so we can analyze usage patterns and improve our Site. The technologies we use to monitor Site activity may include cookies and clear GIFs, among others. A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a user’s computer for record-keeping purposes. Through the use of a cookie, we may automatically collect information about your activity on the Site, such as the pages you visit, the links you click, the searches you conduct, and the date and time of your use of the Site. We may allow third-party providers to serve cookies from the Site to allow them to assist us in various activities, such as analysis and research on the effectiveness of the Site, content and potential advertising. Any information that these third parties collect via cookies and web beacons is not linked to any Personal Information collected by us.
You may delete or decline browser cookies by changing your browser settings. (Click “Help” in the toolbar of most browsers for instructions.) If you do so, some of the features of the Site may not function properly.
Clear GIFs (a.k.a. web bugs, beacons, or tags) are small graphic images placed on a web page, web-based document, or in an email message. Clear GIFs are invisible to the user because they are typically very small (only 1-by-1 pixel) and the same color as the background of the web page, document or email message. We do not use clear GIFs to collect Personal Information about you; however, we may use clear GIFs to capture statistical usage information for our Site. We may correlate this information to a user to personalize the user experience and for statistical analysis of user experiences on our Site.
We also maintain log files that contain IP addresses. In general, we use log files to monitor traffic on our Site, to troubleshoot technical problems, and to report aggregate information to our advertisers. In the event of user abuse of our Site, however, we may block certain IP addresses or console IDs. If available, IP addresses and console IDs may be used to personally identify you in order to enforce our Terms.
We take the safeguarding of your Personal Information seriously. We employ reasonable security measures to prevent or reduce the risk of disclosure of such information and Personal Information. While we strive to ensure the safety and security of your information, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. Please advise us right away if you believe your Personal Information has been compromised in any way.
THIRD PARTY SITES
We may use a third-party technology to remarket our Site based on your behavior while using this Site. Note that only non-personally identifiable information would be used in this process. This means that depending which pages you visit on the Site, your browser can become part of an audience, thus be exposed to our ads though third-party ad networks (including Google) across the Internet. You can opt-out of being included in remarketing by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative opt-out page.
We do not knowingly or intentionally collect any Personal Information from anyone under the age of 13. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her child has provided us with Personal Information without their consent, he or she should contact us at email@example.com. If we become aware that a child under 13 has provided us with Personal Information, we will delete such information.
In the event GatherSmart goes through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of a portion of its assets, your information, including your Personal Information will, in most instances, be part of the assets transferred.
INTERNATIONAL DATA TRANSFERS
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY AND TERMS
GatherSmart aims to take reasonable steps to allow you to correct, amend, or delete your Personal Information. You may also unsubscribe from any emails using the link provided in any such email.
RESPONSE TO DO NOT TRACK SIGNALS
We do not track our customers over time and across third-party websites to provide targeted advertising and therefore do not respond to Do Not Track (“DNT”) signals. However, some third-party sites and mobile applications do keep track of your browsing activities when they serve you content, which enables them to tailor what they present to you. If you are visiting such sites or mobile applications, your web browser may allow you to set the DNT signal on your browser so that third parties (particularly advertisers) know you do not want to be tracked.
