Privacy Policy


Global Net Commerce Inc. and its subsidiaries (“GNCI”) believe that online privacy is crucial for the ongoing success of the Internet as a service, commercial, and entertainment medium. GNCI recognizes the need for the appropriate protection and management of personally identifiable information that you provide us. We respect the importance of individual privacy and value the confidence of our customers, employees, job applicants, and other visitors to this website (the “Website”) who may choose to provide personally identifiable information to us through the Website. The globalization of business in this increasingly electronic economy makes the collection of personally identifiable information of individuals a necessity. It is our goal to balance the benefits of e-commerce with the preservation of individual privacy rights. This Privacy Policy will assist you in understanding what types of information we may collect through the Website, how that information may be used, and with whom the information may be shared. This Privacy Policy does not govern the personally identifiable information collection, handling, or use of any other site other than this Website.


For the purposes of this Privacy Policy, “personally identifiable information” means information concerning a natural person which, because of name, number, personal mark, identification number, location data, online identifier, one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural, or social identity of that person, or other identifier, can be used to identify such natural person, but only to the extent such information is (1) collected by GNCI through this Website directly from the natural person in question; and (2) is maintained by GNCI in an accessible form. Personally identifiable information includes (i) a first and last name, (ii) a home or other physical address, including street name and name of a city or town, (iii) an e-mail address, (iv) a telephone number, (v) a social security number, and (vi) employment related information consisting of resumes and applications.

During your use of the Website, GNCI may collect personally identifiable information from you that includes (1) your first and last name, (2) a home or business mailing address, (3) an e-mail address, (4) a telephone number, and (5) employment information.

Generally, you may browse this Website without being required to provide us any of your personally identifiable information. However, in some circumstances we may request that you provide personally identifiable information. Although your response to such a request is completely voluntary, there are times when you may be required to provide personally identifiable information to us, such as when you contact us through the Website contact form or when you respond to job opportunities available with GNCI. These functions may not be available to individuals who elect not to provide the information requested.

Specifically, we have collected the following categories of personally identifiable information within the preceding 12 months:

A. Identifiers.

A name, alias, address, unique personal identifier, online identifier, Internet Protocol address, e-mail address, account name, or other similar identifiers. Some examples may overlap with other categories.

B. Personal information categories listed in the California Customer Records statute (Cal. Civ. Code § 1798.80(e)).

A name, address, telephone number, education, employment, employment history, or any financial information, medical information, or health insurance information.

Age (40 years or older), race, color, ancestry, national origin, citizenship, religion or creed, marital status, medical condition, physical or mental disability, sex (including gender, gender identity, gender expression, pregnancy or childbirth, and related medical conditions), sexual orientation, veteran or military status, genetic information (including familial genetic information).

D.  Internet or other similar network activity.

Browsing history, search history, information on a consumer's interaction with a website, application, or advertisement.

Education records directly related to a student maintained by an educational institution or party acting on its behalf, such as grades, transcripts, class lists, student schedules, student identification codes, student financial information, or student disciplinary records.

We obtain the personally identifiable information listed above from the following sources:


GNCI may use the personally identifiable information it collects from you during the course of your use of the Website for a variety of business and marketing purposes including, without limitation, (1) responding to requests for service(s) or service information, (2) processing orders, (3) conducting transactions, (4) record-keeping and archival purposes pursuant to applicable law, (5) promoting Website development, (6) customer service purposes, (7) employment inquiries made by users of the Website, (8) promotional programs, and (9) to contact and correspond with you for legal, marketing, and other business purposes.

Additionally, pursuant to your acceptance of this Privacy Policy and by providing GNCI with your contact information, you hereby acknowledge, agree, and consent to receiving communications from GNCI via e-mail, regular mail, telephone number, or other means, for purposes of, among other things, (1) receiving marketing material, promotional offers, events, and news related to GNCI, and (2) to correspond with you regarding any transactions you may have completed or attempted to complete on the Website or otherwise with GNCI. Please note that your access or use of the Website or right to purchase products from GNCI is not conditioned upon your consenting to receive e-mail communications from GNCI, and that you may opt-out of receiving future e-mail communication from GNCI (i) by contacting the Data Protection Officer as described in section 13, or by (ii) clicking the “unsubscribe” link in any GNCI e-mail communication e-mailed to you.

GNCI may also collect non-personally identifiable information such as domain information, browser, operating system, date and time, and specific pages you visit as a part of our analysis of the use of the Website. This data enables us to become more familiar with which customers visit our Website and web pages, how often they visit, and what parts of the Website they visit most often. GNCI uses this information to improve our web-based offerings and improve the overall quality of the online experience, including product monitoring and product improvement, and does not combine it with your personally identifiable information. This information is collected automatically and requires no action on your part. To these ends, we may merge information about you into group data, which may then be shared on an aggregated basis with our clients and/or advertisers; but GNCI will not disclose your individual identity or personal and/or business data without your permission. When GNCI does present aggregated information to outside companies, no one will be able to identify or contact you.


You expressly consent to GNCI sharing the information that you have provided, as described herein, across borders and from your country of residence or jurisdiction to other countries around the world with its (1) business partners, (2) affiliates, (3) subsidiaries, (4) legal representatives, (5) sales agents, (6) independent contractors, and (7) third-party vendors and suppliers for GNCI’s business purposes described in section 3.

If you do not want personally identifiable information disclosed, you may “opt out” of future contacts at any time by unsubscribing from our database by contacting the Data Protection Officer as described in section 13. Notwithstanding anything stated to the contrary herein, GNCI will not share your personally identifiable information with third parties for third parties’ direct marketing purposes that are unrelated to GNCI products.

GNCI may share personally identifiable information with companies that provide support services to GNCI, and these companies are not authorized to use personally identifiable information for any purpose other than pursuant to the services provided to GNCI, but GNCI does not control these companies. GNCI also reserves the right to share your personally identifiable information to respond to duly authorized information request(s) of governmental authorities or where required by law.

GNCI has not sold any personally identifiable information in the preceding 12 months, but GNCI has shared the following categories of personally identifiable information in the preceding 12 months in accordance with this Privacy Policy:


We may offer sweepstakes, contests, and other promotions (any, a “Promotion”) through the Website that may require registration. By participating in a Promotion, you are agreeing to the terms, conditions, or official rules that govern that Promotion, which may contain specific requirements of you, including, except where prohibited by law, allowing the sponsor(s) of the Promotion to use your name and/or state of residence in advertising or marketing associated with the Promotion. If you choose to enter a Promotion, personally identifiable information may be disclosed to third parties or the public in connection with the administration of such Promotion, including, without limitation, in connection with winner selection, prize fulfillment, and as required by law or permitted by the Promotion's official rules, such as on a winners list.


We may offer chat rooms, message boards, bulletin boards, blogs, or similar public forums where you and other users of our Website can communicate. The protections described in this Privacy Policy do not apply when you provide information (including personally identifiable information) in connection with your use of these public forums. We may use personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information about you to identify you with a posting in a public forum. Any information you share in a public forum is public information and may be seen or collected by anyone, including third parties that do not adhere to our Privacy Policy. Accordingly, you should have no expectation of privacy for any information you post on public areas of the Website; if this is a concern, you should not participate in posting information to public areas of the Website. We are not responsible for events arising from the distribution of any information you choose to publicly post or share through the Website.


Some pages on the Website use “cookies”, which are small files that are placed on your hard drive by the Website for identification purposes. These files are used for user login and customization for when you visit the Website. Cookies identify you to the Website and are used to load your preferences and track the pages you visit. Cookies allow the Website to remember important information that will make your visit to the Website more useful and help improve your future visits. If your browser is set up to automatically accept cookies, then your browser will add this small file to your hard drive. Most web browsers allow you to modify the way cookies are handled. You may be able to configure your web browser to warn you when it receives a cookie in order to be given a choice to accept or reject a cookie, or your browser may be configured to automatically refuse cookies. Each browser is different. Refer to the "Help" menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences. By not accepting cookies, you may have to manually input user IDs and passwords to access certain information on this Website, and some pages may not fully function.

Some browsers have incorporated "Do Not Track" (DNT) features that can send a signal to the websites you visit indicating you do not wish to be tracked. Because there is not yet a common understanding of how to interpret the DNT signal, GNCI does not currently respond to browser DNT signals
