Privacy Information

GA is committed to protecting your privacy and developing technology that gives you the most powerful and safe online experience. This Statement of Privacy applies to the GA website and governs data collection and usage. By using the GA website, you consent to the data practices described in this statement.

Collection of Your Personal Information

GA collects personally identifiable information, such as your email address, name, home or work address, or telephone number. GA also collects anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests, and favorites. There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by GA. This information can include your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times, and referring website addresses. This information is used by GA for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the GA website. Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through GA public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others.

Use of Cookies

GA use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize GA, or register with GA site or services, a cookie helps GA to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same GA website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the GA features that you customized. You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the GA or websites you visit.

Security of Your Personal Information

GA secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. GA secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

Changes to This Statement

GA will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. GA encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how GA is protecting your information.
