1. Information GCC Collects.
When you submit information to GCC through our Products, or otherwise correspond with GCC, GCC receives and stores that information, including personal information. Personal information includes any information that could reasonably be used to personally identify you, including information you provide to us when you register to use our Products or create a user account (such as your email address, social media account information, phone number, location, payment information if you purchase products or services from us, and all information contained in your User Generated Content). If you consent to our use of your geo-location, your device will transmit your location information to us and may be used to provide you with information about nearby users, services, or events. If you use our single-sign-on functionality or use any social media platforms in connection with our Products, we may collect personal information that you make available to us through those social media platforms, including, without limitation, your profile and account information. Please remember that the privacy policies and practices of third parties govern your use of their products and services.
We may employ clear gifs (also known as web beacons), which are used to anonymously track the online usage patterns of our users. We may also use clear gifs in HTML-based emails sent to our users to track which emails are opened and which links are clicked by recipients. This information allows for more accurate reporting and improvement of our Products.
When you visit our website or otherwise use our Products, we also automatically receive and record certain information that your web browser provides, such as: your web request, IP address, browser type, browser language, referring/exit pages and URLs, platform type, domain names, type of device and operating system, pages, and information about your usage and interaction with our Products. In addition, GCC may use “cookies” (session ID or persistent) or similar technologies to record session identification such as browser type, pages, and information about your use and interaction with our Products. Please note that if you disable cookies in your browser settings, you may not be able to use all of our Products’ features.
2. How GCC Uses Your Personal Information.
We use the information we collect to contact you, to allow you to link our Products to your social media accounts, to allow you to connect with us through social media platforms, to allow you to interact with our Products and other users, to improve the content or functionality of our Products, to provide you with information you specifically request, to provide product support, updates, and customer service, to contact you regarding new products, services, or upcoming events, and to comply with legal requirements.
The non-identifying information that we collect may be used to improve our Products by providing us information about the number of users, the types of technology used, and to detect any problems with how our Products work. If you enable push notifications from our mobile applications, we may store information about your mobile device in order to send you notifications from our Products. You can disable push notifications for the application from your device‘s settings.
Information you provide to third-party service providers is subject to the specific service providers‘ privacy policies and practices. We encourage you to familiarize yourself with any third-party provider’s practices and policies before using their products or services. We may also share non-personally identifiable information (or de-identified information) in bulk with advertising, marketing, or other partners, if any, for analysis of our Products. We may use this anonymous and aggregate analytics information to create reports on usage trends and efficiency metrics.
In the event that we ever merge with or are acquired by another company, we may transfer your information to that company.
3. Changing, Correcting, or Updating Your Information.
You can obtain access to the personal information we currently have on file for you and/or correct inaccuracies in such personal information by making a written request to GCC by mail or email to the addresses contained in the “Contact Us” section below. Some of our Products may allow you to update your personal information through your user account. We will correct or remove inaccurate information as requested as long as we do not need to retain the information for legitimate business or legal purposes. We also reserve the right to verify whether the information is correct. For your protection, you may be asked to provide additional information to verify your identity before being granted access to your personal information. You may be able to opt-out of the cookies delivered by our Products by changing the settings on your internet browser. Disabling cookies, however, may substantially limit your ability to interact or access our Products. You may also disable the geo-location function for our mobile application or delete our mobile application all together through your device settings. If you have questions about your device, please contact the manufacturer directly.
Our Products are not directed to individuals under the age of 13, and we do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under age 13. If you are under age 13, you are not authorized to use or access our Products. If we discover that we have received any personal information from a child under the age of 13, we will delete that information immediately. If you believe we have any information from or about anyone under age 13, please contact us at the address listed below.

6. How GCC Protects Your Information.
We protect the security of your information through use of commercially reasonable security features. We also use TLS or SSL security when transmitting certain sensitive information. Of course, no security system is perfect and we do not guarantee that your information is absolutely safe or that information you transmit will not be intercepted.
