Notice of Information Collected and Disclosed
This Policy tells you, among other things, what information we gather from you through our Site, how we may use or disclose that information, and our efforts to protect it. In connection with your use of this Site, we may collect the following information:
- The domain name, but not the e-mail address of visitors to our Site.
- The e-mail addresses of users who communicate with us via e-mail.
- Aggregate information on what pages on our Site users’ access or visit.
- Information volunteered by the user, such as site registration, e-mail update requests and general requests for information.
- Information about your transactions with us.
We do not disclose any nonpublic personal information about you to anyone, except as permitted by law; however, we may choose to disclose all of the information we collect, as described above, to companies that perform marketing services on our behalf or to other similar companies with whom we have joint marketing agreements. Gerard USA is the sole owner of the information collected on this Site. Gerard USA may share aggregate information about users of our Site with advertisers, business partners, sponsors and other third parties, though such summary information will not identify any specifics related to you. We may use the personal identifying information you provide to administer Site usage, monitor traffic-levels, and to contact you regarding improvements we can make to our Site and our services. We also may use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the Site, track user movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. We may use your e-mail address to contact you directly regarding services, products or information that we believe might be of interest to you. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this Policy.
Gerard USA restricts access to your nonpublic personal information to those employees who need to know that information to provide merchandise or information to you. Gerard USA maintains physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to guard your nonpublic personal information.
If you prefer that we not disclose nonpublic personal information about you to nonaffiliated third parties, you may opt out of those disclosures; that is, you may direct us not to make those disclosures (other than disclosures permitted by law). If you receive communications from us that you do not want to receive, you can opt-out from receiving these communications by specifically telling us to stop sending them to you. If you wish to opt out of disclosures to nonaffiliated third parties, you may call Gerard USA at 714-529-0407.
Onward Transfer (Transfers to Third Parties)
We will apply the Notice and Opt-out policies discussed above in the event we propose to disclose your information to a third party.
E-mails and other information you send to us is not encrypted and cannot be considered a secure means of transmitting sensitive information. Gerard USA will never ask you to submit your financial data such as your credit card account number, via e-mail. You should be aware of the limitations of security, authentication, encryption, and privacy measures over the internet and that any information you transmit through the Site may be damaged, corrupted, “sniffed” and/or accessed by another person without your permission. Regardless of the precautions taken by you or by us, “perfect security” does not exist on the Internet. We cannot ensure or warrant the ultimate security of any information you transmit.
Collection and Use of IP Addresses
We may use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the Site, track user’s movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
The Site may contain links to other sites. Please be aware that Gerard USA may not be responsible for content or the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our Site and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information. This Policy applies solely to information collected by this Site.
This Site is not directed at children under the age of 18 and does not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 18. If Gerard USA obtains actual knowledge that it has obtained personal information about a child under the age of 18, that information is immediately and permanently deleted from our records.
