We reserve the right to use your personal information and browsing behavior to personalize the Site and improve the overall user experience. We also may use personal information to evaluate response rates or gauge the usability of the Site.
In order to stop malicious, deceptive, fraudulent or illegal activity from occurring on our website or software platform, we may use identifying information to monitor users’ behavior. Our attempts to prevent malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal Internet activity may cause some users to be suspended from certain or all features.
Subject to applicable law, you may have the right to request and obtain information about, or copies of, your personal information that we process, where we obtained your information, the business or commercial purpose for collecting your information, and the third parties with whom your information is shared. Lastly, you may have the right to ask for the deletion of personal information relating to you, depending on the situation and applicable laws. If you’d like to make a request in relation to these potential rights, please contact us at the email address listed below.
All of our data use is in support of our business. Where we use your data based upon your consent, we recognize that you may withdraw consent if you wish to do so, and that you retain a right to your own data.
The chart below summarizes our practices in relation to our use of personal information.
|Category of Information Collected||Source of Information||Purpose for Collection||Third Parties to whom Information is Disclosed|
|· Identifiers, such as real name, alias, postal address, unique personal identifier, online identifier, Internet Protocol address, email address, account name, social security number, or other similar identifiers.
· Other identifiers, such as signature or telephone number
· Internet or other electronic network activity information, including but not limited to, browsing and search history, and information relating to your interaction with our Site or software
· Inferences we may draw from the above information reflecting your preferences
|You, GPES customers with which you have an investment relationship, and/or your use of our Services||To contact you; provide you with Services; or to make our products and Services better||We may, on a selective and confidential basis, share appropriate information with GPES customers with which you have an investment relationship and companies affiliated to GPES if such sharing is necessary for the performance of our Services. We may also share select information when you expressly request that we provide you with certain products and services that are available through one of our companies. We also disclose your information to service providers, such as cloud computing providers, to allow GPES to conduct its business.|
We may need to disclose your personal information occasionally. Most of our disclosures are necessary to complete a transaction or provide the information or service you have requested. In addition to this, we may disclose your information if needed to comply with a court order, law, legal proceeding, or request from the government. We also reserve the right to disclose your information if we have the reasonable belief that such disclosure is fundamental to the safety of individuals associated with GPES or others unaffiliated with the company, or to report or investigate fraud or a crime.
We will retain personal information for as long as required to provide the Services and otherwise as required by law.
GPES considers the protection of personal information a very high priority. To protect the confidentiality of your activities, we use technology to update and test our computer networks regularly. Our goal is to ensure we maintain commercially reasonable standards to secure your financial privacy, including but not limited to:
We use computer anti-virus software that is designed to detect and prevent computer viruses from entering our computer network system.
We use a specially programmed computer system that “stands” between GPES and the Internet. It is a security measure used by many companies to prevent unauthorized access by individuals or computer networks.
We continually monitor for attempts to bypass or penetrate beyond our security systems.
SSL encrypts all your data into a series of unrecognizable numbers to travel through the Internet and establishes a secure connection between you and us. GPES websites require all traffic to be secured via SSL and rely on this protocol to encrypt data in transit. Once a secure connection is established, our computer network turns these numbers into recognizable information for our use.
We also utilize website certificates obtained through reputable, third-party commercial authorities to prove the website’s identity to browsers.
Identifying Authorized Users
We have designed our systems to ensure that your password and other access credentials are private and confidential. For your protection, only you know your access credentials. Our employees do not have access to them, and they will not ask you to reveal them.
If you have any questions or concerns about these policies, or how GPES protects your personal data, please feel free to contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
