Information we gather and collect through the Platform may include both “non-personal” and “personal” Information and may include, for example, names of files and variables we want to use for prediction, information contained in the files you use for prediction. We may also obtain personal Information such as your name, mailing address, email address and phone number through the Platform. For purposes of this Policy:
“Non-Personal Information”refers to Information that may not by itself be reasonably associated with, linked to, or used to individually identify you or someone else. For example general, non-specific Information regarding your use of the Platform or derived from the Information that you provide to us through the Platform. Information you provide through your use of the Platform for event planning purposes (such as date and venue) shall be deemed to be and shall be treated by us as Non-Personal Information for purposes of this Policy.
“Personal Information”refers to Information that may be reasonably associated with, linked to, or used to individually identify you or someone else or allow you or someone else to be personally identified or contacted. For example, Personal Information may include Information such as your name, email address, telephone number or address either alone or in combination with other Information.
We may collect Information directly from you when you provide Information to us through the Platform, for example, by visiting and using the Site, registering for the Platform, providing Information through the Platform, or otherwise communicating through the Platform.
We may use and share the Non-Personal Information we collect and obtain to provide services to you through the Platform, including performing predictions based on Information you provide, and for any other lawful business purpose without any duty or obligation of accounting or otherwise to you, provided that the Information remains Non-Personal Information. This will include, by way of example, sharing that Non-Personal Information with third parties or developing products, services, and other offerings based on the Non-Personal Information and providing those offerings to other users and third parties.
We may use the Personal Information we collect about you for a variety of purposes, for example:
Operating the Platform;
Providing services to you through the Platform you provide;
Customizing and improving the Platform and services for you;
Providing maintenance, support, and customer service for the Platform;
Providing advertising through the Platform;
Providing notices and announcements to you relating to GC, the Platform, or your Information;
Providing offers for products, services, or other offerings that we feel may be of interest to you;
Contacting you for direct marketing purposes;
Processing payments made through the Platform;
Developing additional products, services and offerings; and Research and analysis.
We may combine and enhance the Personal Information we collect and obtain from you with Information we receive from third parties, provided that we use the combined Information in accordance with this Policy.
We may also use the Personal Information we collect and obtain from you to generate Non-Personal Information. When we do so, we will take reasonable measures to ensure that the Non-Personal Information is no longer personally identifiable and may not later be reasonably associated with, linked to, or used to identify you or someone else. This will include, by way of example, storing the Non-Personal Information separately from any Personal Information. Once we generate Non-Personal Information from any Personal Information, we will not later attempt to again make that information personally identifiable. However, we may combine and enhance that Non-Personal Information with other Non-Personal Information we receive or obtain third parties.
You should not provide any personal information TO US, WHETHER the PLATFORM OR ANY SERVICES, unless you agree to the use of that information in accordance with this Policy AND, IF THE PERSONAL INFORMATION IS ABOUT SOMEONE OTHER THAN YOU, UNLESS YOU HAVE THE AUTHORITY TO USE THAT INFORMATION AND TO PERMIT OUR USE OF THAT INFORMATION IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS POLICY.
We may share Information about you in a variety of ways, for example:
Affiliates. We may share Information with companies that we own or control, that are owned or controlled by us, or that are under common ownership or control with us.
Business Partners. We may share Information with business partners for which we collect Information through the Platform. We will work with our business partners to provide notice to you concerning the purpose for which any Personal Information is being collected on behalf of any business partner. Unless we otherwise notify you, any information we collect on behalf of a business partner will be in accordance with this Policy.
Advertisers. We may share Information with advertisers, for example to target advertising and other content to you and provide pertinent offers that may be of interest to you based on the Information we collect and obtain about you. In addition, third party advertisers may receive Personal Information about you if you click on advertisements displayed through the Platform. Clicking on any advertisement displayed through the Platform will be considered your consent to “opt in” for this transfer.
Service Providers. We may share Information with third parties that help us provide the Platform and our services. For example, we may use third parties to: (a) host, maintain, or manage the Platform or our services; (b) collect or analyze Information; (c) customize or assist us in managing our databases; or (d) provide other services relating to the Platform.
Other Entities. We may share Information with third parties so that they may develop and offer additional products and services to you that we believe will be of interest to you based on the Information we collect and obtain about you.
Law Enforcement. We may share Information with law enforcement agencies if we reasonably believe unlawful activities have occurred or the Information may aid in an investigation into unlawful activity. We may also share Information with law enforcement if we determine, in our sole judgment, that you have violated our agreements or policies or that the release of your Information may protect the rights, property, interests, or safety of GC or any third party.
Legal Processes. We may share Information as required by, or permitted by, law, whether in response to subpoenas, court orders, other legal processes, or as we believe is necessary to exercise our legal rights, including to defend against legal claims that have been or might be brought against us.
Business Transactions. If we transfer ownership or control of any portion of GC or the Platform to a third party, whether or not in the context of an acquisition, merger, or reorganization, we may transfer Information that third party, provided that the use of any of your Personal Information by that third party remains subject to the terms of this Policy.
We may give you the opportunity to “ opt-out” of having your Personal Information used or shared for certain purposes otherwise permitted by this Policy. For example, we may provide you with a choice whether to receive certain messages through from us, whether through the Platform or through other means.
If you no longer wish to receive certain messages from us or to have your Personal Information shared in the manner otherwise permitted by this Policy, you may seek to opt-out of receiving those messages or having your Personal Information shared in that manner. In some cases, opting out of receiving messages or having your Personal Information shared will not affect your ability to use the Platform or the services we provide through the Platform. However, some messages are necessary to the use and operation of the Platform. Likewise, some sharing of Personal Information is necessary to provide you with the services we offer through the Platform. If you wish to opt-out of receiving these messages or of sharing your Personal Information in this manner, we may be required to limit or cancel your access to the Platform or our services.
All opt-out requests can be made as indicated through the Site or contacting us as described above. Note that it will take some time to remove contact information from our lists, so messages from us may continue for a time after a removal request is made.
Although we will take reasonable and appropriate steps to insure the safety and security of your Personal Information (including using industry standard security measures to protect the loss, misuse, and unintended alteration of the Personal Information under our control), we cannot guarantee that your Personal Information (or any other Information) will be secure in all situations. Furthermore, although GC encourages its business partners to maintain the appropriate privacy standards, GC does not have control over Information accessible through the Platform that is supported by third parties. Therefore, the security of your Information while being uploaded or downloaded to or from the Platform is your responsibility.
Children. The Platform and our services are not directed to children under 13 years of age. GC does not knowingly solicit or collect personal information from children under 13 years of age.
Do Not Track. Certain web browsers and other devices you may use to access the Platform may permit you to indicate your preference that you do not wish to be “tracked” online. At this time we do not modify your experience on the Site or the Platform, or the Information we collect from you through the Site or Platform, based on whether such a preference is indicated.
Notification of Changes. We may notify you of any changes to this Policy by way of an email, by posting on the Site or through the Platform. Changes to this Policy will be effective 14 days following such notice. Your continued use of the Site or other aspects of the Platform after any change has become effective will constitute your acceptance of that change. Unless we seek and receive consent from you, we will use the Personal Information we collect and obtain about you in accordance with the version of this Policy effective when the Personal Information was last collected.
