Privacy Policy GDSI

PRIVACY POLICY

At GDSI, we believe it is important for you to know how we treat information about you that we may receive from this website.

INFORMATION COLLECTED

As a visitor to our site, you can browse our pages without having any personally identifiable information revealed about you. Information we automatically collect via industry standard web log files and other tools includes the URL from which you visited, the page you are visiting, your computer browser information and your IP address.

COOKIES/TRACKING

We may also track the effectiveness of various promotions and content through the use of data collection devices known as “cookies.” Cookies contain specific pieces of information on your computer hard drive, and can be set to store information during a visit or for a longer period of time. Our cookies are not tied to personally identifiable information. Third party vendors, including Google and LinkedIn, show our ads on sites on the internet. In addition, there are portions of this website where we may need to collect personal information from you for a specific purpose, such as to provide you with certain information you request. The information collected from you may include your name, address, telephone, fax number, email address, and other personal information.

GDSI does not track its customers over time and across third party websites to provide targeted advertising and therefore does not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals. However, some third party sites do keep track of your browsing activities when they serve you content, which enables them to tailor what they present to you. If you are visiting such sites, determine if your browser allows you to set the DNT signal on your browser so that third parties (particularly advertisers) know you do not want to be tracked.

USE OF COLLECTED INFORMATION

GDSI gathers information for the purpose of providing you with custom information about our service offerings that support your business needs. We recognize that your information is sensitive and restrict our collection of it to the data we deem necessary to deliver these services. If you use the forms on our Site, you may receive emails from us to facilitate your inquiry. You cannot opt out of emails that are necessary to provide our services. Your use of our forms and our website constitute your agreement that we may use your personal information to contact you and deliver information to you. We may share the personal information you provide with other companies we have hired to provide services for us. These companies — our vendors — are contractually bound to use personal information we share with them only to perform the services we have hired them to provide and are prohibited from disclosing the information to anyone else or using it for any other purpose. Except as stated above, we do not share, sell, or lease personal information about you to any third-parties. It is possible that our business may be merged with or sold to another business entity in which case business information is typically one of the assets shared in the combined entity. In the event that this occurs, your personal information will be protected by the GDSI privacy policy in effect at the time. In addition, we will release personal information to legal authorities when we believe it is appropriate to comply with the law. In addition, we may choose to release information about you to relevant parties in relation to investigations of fraud, piracy or other unlawful activity.
