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.

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.
