DATA WE COLLECT
We collect personal data from you when you fill out any registrations and web forms, create an account or place an order with us for products or services, and otherwise when you communicate with us by telephone, email, postal mail, or facsimile. Your submission of personal data is voluntary, but we may be unable to provide you with the requested information, products, and services if you choose not to provide the necessary personal data. In some cases, we may also collect certain personal data about you from third parties such as our worldwide distributors.
We also collect non-personal data when you visit or use our websites and products or services. This non-personal data may include information about your device and usage such as your operating system, browser, geographical location, IP address, and page views and clicks.
USE OF YOUR DATA
We use your personal data:
- for the purposes for which you provided it to us (e.g., to create your user account, process your orders, register you for programs and events, or respond to your inquiries and communications);
- to fulfill our obligations under our customer contracts (e.g., to process payments, arrange shipment, or provide support pursuant to our relevant agreements);
- for our other legitimate business purposes (e.g., to improve, maintain, and operate our websites and our products and services, maintain reasonable business records, carry out anti-fraud and other compliance programs, and resolve disputes);
- for other purposes with your consent (e.g., to inform you about products and services in which you may be interested if you have consented to such communications);
- and to comply with statutory and regulatory requirements, including responding to lawful requests for information by governmental authorities.
You can opt out of receiving promotional or marketing emails at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any such emails. You may also revoke your consent to the use of your data for certain other purposes by contacting us as set forth at the end of this Policy.
For more information on the cookies that may be placed (subject to your browser settings allowing cookies) when you visit our website at store.gaumard.com, please visit our Cookie Notice page.
DISCLOSURE OF YOUR DATA
We do not sell your personal data to any third parties. We may share your personal data as needed to fulfill the purposes described in the “USE OF YOUR DATA” section above, including:
- with our vendors and service providers (such as payment processors and shipping providers) to provide goods and services you have requested;
- to the relevant successor entity in connection with a sale of the relevant business or another similar corporate transaction;
- and as necessary to comply with orders from law enforcement and other governmental authorities.
DATA RETENTION, ACCESS, AND CORRECTION
Gaumard may retain your data so long as we can reasonably foresee the data may be required in connection with our business relationship with you. In some cases, we will retain the data for a longer period as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, follow records retention policies, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
You may access and correct your personal data that we process, except where the burden of providing you such access would be disproportionate to the risks to your privacy, or where the rights of other persons would be violated. You may also request erasure of your personal data in certain circumstances. To request access to, correction of, or erasure of your personal data, please contact us as set forth at the end of this Policy. These access rights may not apply in some cases, including where providing access is unreasonably burdensome or expensive under the circumstances or where it would violate the rights of someone other than yourself. If you would like to request access to, correct, amend, or delete your personal data, you can submit a written request to the contact information provided below. To protect your privacy, we will take commercially reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access to or making any changes to your personal data. If we deny your request, we will provide you with a written explanation of the reasons for our determination. We may charge a reasonable administrative fee in connection with such requests in cases where we believe your requests to be unreasonable or excessive. In cases where we are not the data controller (such as when the personal data was collected from or on behalf of an air travel provider or other customer), we may need to refer you or your request to the applicable data controller.
Gaumard is based in the United States, and personal data collected by Gaumard or its distributors worldwide may be transferred to Gaumard in the United States for processing. We are typically the data controller, as that term is used in applicable privacy laws, for any personal data that we collect from you. However, when we collect data from or on behalf of a third party (e.g., our distributors), those parties may be the data collector for such data, and we may be the data processor. If we are acting as the data processor, we will only process the relevant data in accordance with the applicable contract.
Gaumard is very concerned with safeguarding your personal data. The integrity and availability of your personal data are critical to the provision of superior products and services to you. To this end, we employ reasonable administrative, physical, procedural, and technological measures designed to protect your data from unauthorized access or alteration and loss or misuse.
THIRD PARTY SITES
Gaumard’s website is not directed toward children under 18. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her child has provided us with personal data without their consent, please contact us as set forth at the end of this Policy and we will take reasonable steps to remove such data from our systems.
Gaumard reserves the right to revise this Policy from time to time. If we make a material change to this policy, we will post the updated version of this Policy (including the date the changes went into effect) on the Gaumard homepage and other places we may deem appropriate, so that you are aware of what data we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it.
