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.
If you provide your information via web form, chat, call-in, or anything else on Governmentservicesexchange.com, you are giving our marketing department permission to send you updates via call/text/email. You always have the option to opt-out. 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 phone number and email address, Government Services Exchange may occasionally send you emails and SMS messages to tell you about new features, ask for your feedback, or keep you up to date with what’s going on with our services. By giving your details via an online form, you are giving consent to receive these messages. Of course, you may always opt out.
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.
Other Privacy Rules (CCPA)
Any data received from GSE customers, whether over the phone (verbal, text, audio, or image), via electronic or physical/paper transmission, remains completely private and is not authorized to be shared, including copied in any format, with other customers, outside vendors, company partners, third parties, or any other external persons, organizations, associates, or subsidiaries, unless explicit consent has been provided knowingly by the customer. Customer data is also not to be shared internally with GSE staff unless such secure transmission of data is vital to the production and/or delivery of ordered or purchased products requested by the customer. GSE staff and its systems, by virtue of the nature of its business, do not accept nor store private medical information which is protected under HIPAA and other medical privacy laws.
GSE holds the copyright to all marketing designs, which includes any marketing material whether physical or electronic that currently is offered or will be offered in the future, that its current or past staff created in whole or in part; the only exception being thus: 1) when a customer provided their own design in whole, 2) copyrighted logos, trademarks, or other such copyrighted design or business elements registered. Whole designs provided by the customer (i.e. “provided art”) is classified as confidential information and is not authorized to be shared, copied, or transmitted in any fashion to anybody, whether internal or external, unless explicit written permission is provided by the customer, or for that which internal production and delivery modalities necessitate the internal and secure transmission of the data.
GSE reserves the right to distribute mailing lists that it personally purchases from mailing list vendors, unless written information otherwise indicates. However, mailing lists provided by customers to GSE remain confidential information, and thus are not authorized to be shared, copied, or transmitted in any fashion to anybody, whether internal or external, unless explicit written permission is provided by the customer, or for that which internal GSE production and delivery modalities necessitate the internal and secure transmission of the data.
The above confidentialities apply to all GSE services, everything remains confidential and private unless written consent is provided by the customer, or except for vital transmission of data requisite to actually produce or deliver the product for the customer.
These written conditions constitute a written agreement with all GSE customers as a statement of intent and good measure to protect their data.

You acknowledge that such transfers may occur and that any Government Services Exchange acquirer may continue to use your personal information.
