We will make every effort, continually, to put in place suitable precautions to safeguard the security and privacy of personal data, and to prevent it from being altered, corrupted, destroyed or accessed by unauthorized third parties. Know that all GCI Site users can contact us to have their information (if any) managed accordingly.
You can make choices about our collection and use of your data. How you can access or control your personal data will depend on which services you use. You can choose whether you wish to receive promotional communications from the GCI Site by email, SMS, physical mail, and telephone. If you receive promotional email or SMS messages from us and would like to opt out, you can do so by following the directions in that message. For any other personal data management, you can contact us at any time.
The GCI Site collects data to operate effectively and provide you the best experiences with our services. You may provide more of this data directly, such as when you create a personal account or send us a message. We obtain some user performance by recording how you interact with our services by, for example, using technologies that utilize Analytics, Insights, and other Metrics, and receiving error reports or usage data from software running on your computer or device. We may also use services from other companies to help us determine a location based on your IP address in order to customize certain services to your location. The data we collect depends on the services and features you use with the GCI Site.
The GCI Site uses the data we collect for three basic purposes: to operate our business and provide (including improving and personalizing) the services we offer, to send communications, including promotional communications, and to display advertising. In carrying out these purposes, we combine data we collect through the various web site services you use to give you a more seamless, consistent and personalized experience. We have built in technological and procedural safeguards designed to prevent certain data combinations. And our web servers and company servers are not connected or housed together.
We may share your personal data with your consent or as necessary to complete any transaction or provide any service you have requested or authorized. For example, when you provide payment data to make a purchase, we will share payment data with banks and other entities that process payment transactions or provide other financial services, and for fraud prevention and credit risk reduction. In addition, we may need to share personal data with vendors or agents working on our behalf for the purposes described in this statement. For example, companies we've hired to provide customer service support or assist in protecting and securing our systems and services may need access to personal data in order to provide those functions. In such cases, these companies must abide by our data privacy and security requirements and are not allowed to use personal data they receive from us for any other purpose. We may also disclose personal data as part of a corporate transaction such as a merger or sale of assets or when deemed mandatory by legal authority. Everything we do is normal and proper with most any company website online today. There is nothing sneaky or of security concern with us. We are advocates of a safe and private world wide web.
