The personal information GSL collects may be captured from a variety of sources. These sources include but are not limited to voluntary submissions (e.g., responses to surveys, requests for information on our products or those of our advertisers/marketing partners) and review of site usage patterns.

Information collected when you become a client of GSL
When you enter into a contract or agreement with GSL for its services or products, you may be asked to submit personal information about yourself or your company in order to receive or use these services or products. This information may include your name, address, job title, telephone number, e-mail address, and financial information necessary to conclude a contract/agreement and enable administration and management of such services or products.

GSL may also collect information from you automatically through various technologies including but not limited to the following:

  • Cookies. Cookies are small text files sent by a website server (1) to your Web browser and stored on your computer and (2) in e-mail we send to you. The use of cookies helps us understand how you are using our sites and applications. Cookies help us to improve security, content, navigation, and functionality. Additionally, we use cookies on our sites, the websites on which we advertise, and through our e-mail to track advertising performance and to collect aggregate data on sites and/or through e-mail viewing. We may also use a third-party provider to track or collect such information. We do not use cookies that contain or capture unencrypted personal information. You can manage the placement of cookies on your computer through the features found in most Internet browsers, including adjusting your browser settings to warn you before a cookie is stored or to block all cookies. You can also delete cookies that have already been placed on your computer. Consult the "Help" function of your browser to explore your options or consult your Internet administrator.
  • Web Beacons. We may also use Web beacons to access our cookies. A Web beacon is an electronic file on a Web page that allows us to count users who have visited that page and to recognize users by accessing our cookies. Furthermore, a Web beacon can be used in HTML-formatted e-mail to determine responses to our communications and measure their effectiveness. You can avoid Web beacons by turning off HTML display and displaying only the text portion of your e-mail.
Internet Protocol (IP) Address. As you enter our websites, we capture and retain the IP address of the device you are using—such as a personal computer or a mobile device. The IP address does not identify you or your personal information, and it is primarily used for security purposes

HOW GSL USES INFORMATION IT COLLECTS

GSL’s primary purpose in collecting information about you is to provide you with the products, services, and information that you request. We may also use information about you to track the effectiveness of the services provided to you on our site and your use of the products, services, and information provided on our site. In addition, GSL may aggregate the information that you provide with the information that other users provide in order to conduct research, analysis, or studies for our own purposes (i.e., not related to providing you with specific products or services).

Where personal information is collected, it will be used in administration of the Website and services rendered thereunder and tailored to our service and/or products to match your needs. GSL may also use personal information to conduct market research surveys, for statistical analysis to determine site usage, to run competitions, and for direct marketing purposes relating to its business. The services of third parties may be employed to help GSL in certain areas, such as website hosting, marketing, and market research. In these cases, that third party may receive your information. However, GSL will endeavour at all times to keep control of and be responsible for the use of your information. By providing GSL with your personal information, you consent to our transferring of your information to countries or jurisdictions which may not provide the same level of data protection as us. If GSL makes such a transfer, GSL will, if appropriate, put a contract in place that imposes obligations on its counterparties to protect your information.

We are also under statutory obligation to collect, keep, and submit certain information to relevant government regulatory and other agencies, from time to time, including information about our customers. Therefore, where required by law or by any regulatory or government agency in the lawful exercise of its powers, we will provide your information to them.


HOW WE SHARE INFORMATION

GSL will not sell, rent, or license your personal information to anyone. This applies to both existing and former customers. GSL will, however, share personally identifiable information with other companies in the following situations:

  • Sharing Your Information with Subcontractors. We may share information with subcontractors that provide us with services. These services may include, among other things, helping us to provide services that you request, to create or maintain our databases, to research and analyze the people who request products, services, or information from us, and to provide statements, transaction confirmations, or check printing. Any party with whom we share your personal information shall be required either contractually or by law to keep it confidential and to not disclose it without your consent and to only use such information as required for the services to be performed.

  • Law Enforcement and Legal Process. We may disclose personal information to government and regulatory agencies to comply with a lawful summons, court order, subpoena, discovery request, fraud investigation, audit, regulatory examination, or other valid court, government, or regulatory agency request.

  • Business Transition.If we or any of our assets are acquired, your information may be transferred to the acquiring company.

  • Provision of credit data to credit reference companies. We may join or subscribe to the services of a credit bureau/credit reference company and may be required by virtue of such membership or subscription to periodically provide credit information about our customers. Credit bureaus/credit reference companies are companies that collect and aggregate personal information, financial data, and other related information (both recent and historical) on individuals from a variety of sources with which they have relationships and provide consumer credit information on individual consumers for a variety of uses. They are required by law to preserve the confidentiality of information provided to them and may only release this information as permitted by law.

SECURITY AND PROTECTION

Personal information collected will be held securely and will only be kept for as long as is required by any applicable law or as reasonably necessary in the circumstances you are registered to use the Website, or for as long as you use the service or product that you are subscribed to, unless you have provided us with your consent to use the data for any additional purposes. We take the security of the Website and the information you provide very seriously and we will take all appropriate technical measures using recognized security procedures and tools in accordance with good industry practice to protect your personal information. We have reasonable security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse, and interception by third parties of the information under our control, but, to the extent allowed by law, GSL assumes no liability for any damages you may suffer as a result of interception, alteration, or misuse of information transmitted over the Internet. While we make all reasonable efforts to protect your security in the manner described above, we consider it only appropriate to advise users that data transmission over the Internet and the World Wide Web cannot be guaranteed to be 100% secure, and therefore advise you that you use the Website at your own risk.


CONTROLLING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

Whenever you are asked to complete a form on the Website, you may click a box to indicate that you do not want the information to be used by anybody for direct marketing purposes. We will not sell, distribute, or release your personal information to third parties unless we have your permission or we are required by law to do so. If you have previously agreed to us using your personal information for direct marketing purposes, you may change your mind at any time by writing or emailing us. Please note that it may take some time for us to update our records to ensure your new choices are respected.


CHANGES TO THE POLICY AND THE WEBSITE

To the extent allowed by law, GSL may update this Policy from time to time, and you are responsible for periodically reviewing the most current version on the Website. To the extent allowed by law, your continued use of the Website will be deemed to be your conclusive acceptance of the updated Policy. GSL reserves the right to change or delete any information, features, or content from the pages of the Website at any time and without notice. However, GSL will make a reasonable effort to notify you of changes to information, features, or content for which you have paid, to which you have subscribed, and/or are required to pay any consideration.
