There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by GHX. This information can include: browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. This information is used by GHX for the operation of any of the services or products offered by GHX, to maintain quality of the service or products, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the GHX products.
Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through any public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others.
GHX encourages you to review the privacy statements of websites you choose to link to from GHX so that you can understand how those websites collect, use and share your information. GHX is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on websites outside of the GHX and GHX family of websites nor does its policy extend to such websites.
Internal Use of your Personal Information
GHX collects and uses your personal information to operate the GHX products and deliver the services you have requested. GHX also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from GHX and its affiliates. GHX may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.
GHX does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. With your consent, GHX may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, GHX may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you electronic or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to GHX on your behalf, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.
To the extent GHX obtains sensitive personal information, GHX will not use or disclose such, without your explicit consent, which GHX will obtain directly from you.
GHX products will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on GHX or the product.
The GHX products use "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. A cookie tells the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize GHX pages, or register with GHX site or services, a cookie helps the web server to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. When you return to the same GHX product, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the GHX features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer.
The collection and storage of data may be revoked at any time with respect to future services. On request, GHX will inform you in writing whether we have stored personal data about you and, if so, which data. Your rights to notification, correction, blocking and deletion expressly stated under the law will be observed. You may retract your consent to the saving of your personal data given on the relevant pages at any time by sending us a brief notification.
Security of your Personal Information
GHX secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. GHX secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure.
Changes to this Statement
GHX may occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. GHX encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how GHX is protecting your information.
