When you make a purchase on the Website, we will also require that you provide us with much of the same information so that we can process your order and know where to ship it. This information will also be used to contact you if we have trouble processing an order, or for any related other purpose.
It is important that you keep this information current and accurate. Inaccuracies will make it difficult, or impossible for Gfreely to contact you about any issues related to your account, and regarding any purchases you make on the Website.
When you make a purchase on the Website, Gfreely requires that you provide us with billing information used to process and fill your order. This information includes, but is not necessarily limited to your credit or debit card number, expiration date, and card verification number. If we have trouble processing an order, this information will be used to contact you.
Some cookies are temporary “Session” cookies, which are usually erased from your computer after you exit your web browser. Session cookies are used for purposes such as managing how you view the Website. Other cookies are more permanent “Persistent” cookies which may be stored on your computer even after you exit your web browser. Persistent cookies may be used for purposes such as retrieving certain information you have already provided (like your user name and password), and storing your preferences.
Otherwise, the information we collect using cookies is used in non-identifiable ways, without any reference to your personally identifiable information or billing information. For example, we use information we collect through cookies to optimize the Website and understand its traffic and usage patterns.
Sharing of Information With Third Parties
Generally, Gfreely does not disclose your personally identifiable information or billing information to third party advertisers, service providers, Websites, or businesses.
Gfreely also reserves the right to disclose your information in order to 1) effect a merger, acquisition, or otherwise support the sale or transfer of business assets; 2) enforce our rights or protect our property; 3) protect the rights, property or safety of others; 4) investigate fraud, respond to a government request, or as needed to support auditing, compliance, and corporate governance functions; 5) defend ourselves in litigation or a regulatory action, and when required or advised to do so by law, such as in response to a subpoena, or similar legal process, including to law enforcement agencies, regulators, and courts in the United States.
If Gfreely is involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all of its assets, we will notify you via e-mail and/or post prominent notice on the Website of any change in ownership or potential uses of your information, as well the choices you may have regarding your information. The use of your information may be governed by the privacy policies of the new owner and will not be subject to our control.

Accessing, Updating, or Deleting Your Information
It is important that you keep your information on the Website up to date so that you have the best experience possible. If your information is not current you may not receive your orders, and we may not be able to contact you regarding an order or respond to any of your communications with us.
You may access and update your information at any time through your Gfreely account, and by contacting us via the e-mail address given on our Website.
When contacting us you may also inquire as to what data we have about you, if any; change or correct data we have about you; request the deletion of any data we have about you; and express any concern you have about our use of your data.

When you submit sensitive information through the Website, your information is protected both online and offline. However, no Website can guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to defeat security measures or use your information for improper purposes.
Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card information), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. Encryption makes it difficult for your credit card information to be intercepted or stolen during transmission. You can verify the encryption by looking for a “closed lock” icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page.
Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access topersonally identifiable information stored offline. The computers and servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
