Global Scanning Internet and Application Privacy Policy

This policy summarizes what personally identifiable information Global Scanning may collect from you, and how Global Scanning might use this information. It is Global Scanning’s policy to comply with all applicable privacy and data protection laws. This internet privacy policy (the “Policy”) describes how Global Scanning protects your privacy when Global Scanning collects personal information on Global (“the Site”). As used in the Policy, the term “Personal Information” means information that identifies you personally, alone or in combination with other information available to Global Scanning.

If you do not consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your Personal Information as described in the Policy, do not use the Site or application.

Handling of Personal Information

To the extent required by applicable law, whenever Global Scanning collects Personal Information on the Site or application, Global Scanning will collect, use, disclose and transfer your Personal Information only with your consent, which may be express or implied, depending on the sensitivity of the Personal Information and legal requirements. Global Scanning will collect your Personal Information only for specific, limited purposes. Global Scanning will process your Personal Information in a manner consistent with the purposes for which it was originally collected or to which you have subsequently consented. Global Scanning retains the Personal Information collected on the Site or application as long as necessary to provide the services, products and information you request or as permitted by applicable law. Global Scanning takes commercially reasonable steps to ensure that your Personal Information is reliable for its intended use, accurate, complete, and, where necessary, kept up-to-date. When Global Scanning transfers and receives certain types of sensitive information such as financial information, Global Scanning redirects visitors to a secure server. Upon request Global Scanning provides site visitors with access to all information that Global Scanning maintains about them. Upon request Global Scanning offers visitors the ability to have inaccuracies corrected in contact information, financial information and transaction information. If you do not want to receive e-mail or other correspondence from Global Scanning in the future or you wish to correct your Personal Information, please let Global Scanning know by sending an e-mail at the above address, calling at the above telephone number or writing using the above address.

Collection and use of Personal Information sent by your web browser

Global Scanning collects information that is sent to Global Scanning automatically by your web browser or through applications. This information typically includes the IP address of your internet service provider, the name of your operating system and the name and version of your browser. The information Global Scanning receives depends on the settings on your web browser. Please check your browser if you want to learn what information your browser sends or how to change your settings. The information provided by your browser does not identify you personally. Global Scanning uses this information to create statistics that help Global Scanning improve the Site and application and make it more compatible with the technology used by our users.

Collection and use of Personal Information collected by placing a cookie

Global Scanning may obtain information about you by installing a “tag” on your computer’s hard drive. This tag is known as a “cookie.” The Site uses “session cookies” and “persistent cookies”. A session cookie is used to tag your computer with a computer-generated, unique identifier when you access the Site. A session cookie does not identify you personally and expires after you close your browser. Global Scanning uses session cookies to collect statistical information about the ways visitors use the Site – which pages they visit, which links they use, and how long they stay on each page. Global Scanning analyzes this information in statistical form to better understand our visitors’ interests and needs to improve the content and functionality of the Site. “Persistent cookies” do not expire when you close your browser; they stay on your computer until you delete them. By assigning your computer a unique identifier, Global Scanning is able to create a database of your previous choices and preferences and in situations where these choices or preferences need to be collected again, they can be provided by Global Scanning automatically, saving you time and effort. For example, after you make a purchase, if you decide to make another purchase, your shipping address will have been retained and will only need to be confirmed. If you do not wish to receive cookies, you may set your browser to reject cookies or to alert you when a cookie is placed on your computer. Although you are not required to accept cookies when you visit the Site, you may be unable to use all of the functionality of the Site if your browser rejects our cookies.

Collection and use of Personal Information knowingly and voluntarily provided by you

Global Scanning collects the information you knowingly and voluntarily provide when you use the Site, for example, the information you provide when you sign up to receive email alerts, when you complete a survey, or when you ask Global Scanning a question or email Global Scanning with feedback.

Personal Information

Global Scanning uses this information for the purposes for which you provide it. For example, if you provide your e-mail address when you sign up to receive e-mail alerts, Global Scanning uses your e-mail address to deliver the e-mail alerts you request. If you supply Global Scanning with your postal address on-line you will only receive the information for which you provided Global Scanning your address. Persons who supply Global Scanning with their telephone numbers on-line may receive telephone contact from Global Scanning with information regarding new products and services or upcoming events.

Other use of Collected Personal Information

Global Scanning may also use the information collected on the Site or in the application for various business purposes such as customer service, fraud prevention, market research, improving our products and services, and providing you and your company with information and offers Global Scanning believes may be of interest to you. Global Scanning may also remove all the personally identifiable information and use the rest for historical, statistical or scientific purposes. In some cases Global Scanning may share your Personal Information with third parties who work with Global Scanning to provide products and services to our customers. When Global Scanning does so, Global Scanning will require our business partners to use the Personal information Global Scanning shares with them in a manner consistent with the purposes for which it was originally collected (or to which you subsequently consented) and only as permitted under the Policy. In certain, limited circumstances Global Scanning may also share or transfer Personal information to unrelated third parties. For example, Global Scanning may provide Personal information to a third party (i) at your request; (ii) to comply with a legal requirement or court order; (iii) to investigate a possible crime, such as identity theft; (iv) in connection with the sale, purchase, merger, reorganization, liquidation or dissolution of Global Scanning or affiliated company; or (v) under similar circumstances. If such an event occurs, Global Scanning will take appropriate steps to protect your Personal Information.
