Categories of Information We Collect
Personally Identifiable Information That You Provide Through the Site:
Non-Personally Identifiable Information: When you interact with GOLES through the Site, we passively collect certain Non-Personally Identifiable Information. “Non-Personally Identifiable Information” is information that we collect from you that cannot presently be used to specifically identify you personally and does not contain information that would allow us to contact you. Examples of Non-Personally Identifiable Information include which pages of the Site you view. GOLES may store such information itself or such information may be included in databases owned and maintained by GOLES affiliates, agents or service providers. The Site may use such information and pool it with other information to track, for example, the total number of visitors to our Site, the number of visitors to each page of our Site, and the domain names of our visitors’ Internet service providers. It is important to note that no Personally Identifiable Information is available or used in this process.
Aggregated Personally Identifiable Information: In an ongoing effort to better understand and serve you and other Site visitors, GOLES often conducts research on its Site visitors’ demographics, interests and behavior based on the Personally Identifiable Information and other information provided to us. This research may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregate basis, and GOLES may share this aggregate data with its agents and business partners. This aggregate information does not identify you personally. GOLES may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe our services to current and prospective business partners, and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.
How We Use and Disclose Information
GOLES is not in the business of selling your information. We consider this information to be a vital part of our relationship with you. There are, however, certain circumstances in which we may share your Personally Identifiable Information with certain third parties without further notice to you, as set forth below:
- Business Transfers: As we develop our business, we might sell or buy businesses or assets. In the event of a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution or similar event, Personally Identifiable Information may be part of the transferred assets.
- Agents, Consultants and Related Third Parties: GOLES, like many businesses, sometimes hires other companies to perform certain business-related functions. Examples of such functions include mailing information, maintaining databases and processing payments. When we employ another company to perform a function of this nature, we only provide them with the information that they need to perform their specific function.
- Legal Requirements: GOLES may disclose your Personally Identifiable Information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (i) comply with a legal obligation, (ii) protect and defend the rights or property of GOLES, (iii) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the Site or the public, or (iv) protect against legal liability.
You can use the Site without providing any Personally Identifiable Information.
