Privacy

Privacy Policy:

Group Aware Inc. (“Group Aware“) operates groupaware.mobi and may operate other websites. It is Group Aware’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Group Aware collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Group Aware’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Group Aware’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Group Aware may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Group Aware also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on groupaware.mobi blogs/sites. Group Aware only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Group Aware’s websites choose to interact with Group Aware in ways that require Group Aware to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Group Aware gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at groupaware.mobi to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Group Aware are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Group Aware collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Group Aware. Group Aware does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Group Aware may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Group Aware may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Group Aware does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Group Aware discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Group Aware’s behalf or to provide services available at Group Aware’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Group Aware’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Group Aware will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Group Aware discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Group Aware believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Group Aware, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Group Aware website and have supplied your email address, Group Aware may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Group Aware and our products. If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Group Aware takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Group Aware uses cookies to help Group Aware identify and track visitors, their usage of Group Aware website, and their website access preferences. Group Aware visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Group Aware’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of Group Aware’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If Group Aware, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Group Aware goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Group Aware may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Ads

Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Group Aware and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Group Aware may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Group Aware’s sole discretion. Group Aware encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. If you have a groupaware.mobi account, you might also receive an alert informing you of these changes. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
