We respect the privacy of all users, and consider all data that is collected to be private. Your information is used strictly for internal purposes, and GGI will not distribute or sell your information to a 3rd party, except as disclosed in this statement.
GGI has implemented processes intended to protect user information and maintain security of data as outlined in the “Data Security & Management Practices for GGI eDesignTM Questionnaires” section of the terms.
It is your responsibility to ensure that you are comfortable with the information that you provide to GGI, including, reviewing and cleansing all data (e.g., form responses, photos, documents, etc.) of any personal information or other that you do not wish to share. GGI recommends reviewing photos for anything you are not comfortable making publicly available, and omitting as appropriate.
These safeguards help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the appropriate use of data, but no guarantee can be made that your information and data will be secure from intrusions and unauthorized release to 3rd parties.
We collect all information requested in the GGI eDesignTM Questionnaires, including any supporting documents or materials that are provided to us. The information we collect is not distributed or sold to a 3rd party, except as described below. Outside of those situations, your information will only be used in
connection with developing your “Design Deliverables” and to communicate with you about your design needs, and where needed as part of certain GGI features.
We never sell or rent your personal information; we may disclose your personal information to third- party service providers (but only to the extent that such disclosure is needed) or if required to do so by law (for example, a subpoena) or regulation, or in good faith to (a) comply with legal processes served on the site, or (b) protect the rights and property of GGI, or (c) where our records indicate fraudulent activity or other deceptive practices that a governmental agency should be made aware of, or (d) where your communication suggests possible harm to others.
