Your privacy is critical to us. At Government Services Exchange, we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:
- We don’t ask you for personal information unless we need it.
- We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
- We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the ongoing operation of our site.
Like most website operators, Government Services Exchange 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.
Government Services Exchange’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to understand better how our visitors use the website.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
GSE also collects potentially personally identifying information like IP addresses for logged-in users and users leaving comments on our blogs.
Certain visitors to our website choose to interact with Government Services Exchange in ways that require us to gather personally identifying information. The amount and type of information that GSE gathers depends on the nature of the interaction.
For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. Government Services Exchange collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with GSE.
GSE does not disclose personally identifying information other than as described. And visitors can always refuse to supply information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Government Services Exchange may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. GSE may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, we do not disclose personally identifying information other than as described above.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Government Services Exchange discloses potentially personally identifying information only to its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations that need to know that information to process it.
By using GSE’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to us. As described above, we will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying information to anyone other than its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations.
Government Services Exchange discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order, or other governmental requests.
If you are a registered user of our website and have supplied your email address, Government Services Exchange may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or keep you up to date with what’s going on with our services.
We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this email type to a minimum. If you send us a request, we reserve the right to publish it to help us clarify or respond to your request or support other users. GSE takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally identifying information.
If Government Services Exchange or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that the company goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets transferred or acquired by a third party.
You acknowledge that such transfers may occur and that any Government Services Exchange acquirer may continue to use your personal information.
Ads appearing on 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 deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will most interest you.
Comments and other content submitted are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.
