We gather the following information:

What Information Do We Gather and How Do We Use It?
When you visit our site, GVIG may gather two categories of information about you:
- Personal information
The only personally identifying information about you that we gather and maintain is that which you choose to supply to us. For example, whether you send us an email or a letter, we collect your personally identifiable information. This information will be used to respond to your email or letter. We may also use your information to give you updates on our products and upcoming GVIG events.
- Non-personal, aggregate information
Non-personally identifiable information about you is collected and used in the following ways:
“Referrers,” IP addresses, and other environmental factors are all used by GVIG to collect data. A “referrer” is information sent by the web browser to the GVIG web server that refers to the URL you came from.
2. IP Addresses
The “IP address” is a number that network computers use to identify your computer so that data may be sent to it. The domain from which you access the Internet, the time you accessed our website, the types of web browser and operating system or platform you used, the Internet addresses of the websites you left to visit GVIG, the names of the pages you visit while at our website, and the Internet address of the next website you visit are all examples of “environmental variables”
All of this information is collected to help us detect broad demographic patterns, give content suited to your interests, and improve your experience on GVIG ‘s websites.
We may combine your personally identifiable information with click-stream data and other data we have to help us improve our websites and ensure that we offer you with content that is of interest to you. We will not integrate your personally identifiable information in any way without first offering you the option to opt out. This opt-out option will be available at the time and location of data collection, as well as before data is entered into our system. Based on your usage of our site, we may create a profile that does not contain any personally identifying information.
- Third-Party Access to Your Information
Without your authorization, we may disclose your personally identifiable information with our affiliates except:
- As part of our anti-fraud security measures
- As part of your account’s management (e.g. credit card processing for purchases)
Without your consent, we will not disclose your personally identifiable information with non-affiliated third parties. If we share your personally identifiable information with a third party as part of our security processes or to administer your account as indicated in this section, we shall contractually bind the third party to secure your information and use it only as instructed by GVIG.
- Changes Notification
We take steps to secure your personally identifiable information from third-party access and unintended exposure. Some of these safeguards entail the use of technology such as firewalls and protected access.
