Business Transactions:

In the event that GMOGONE goes through a business transaction, such as a merger or acquisition by another entity involving the sale of all or a portion of its assets, please note that the PII collected and retained by GMOGONE may be among the assets transferred.  In the event a transaction of this kind occurs that results in the transfer of PII, GMOGONE will notify you via e-mail and/or place a prominent notice on the Site for thirty (30) days of any such change in ownership or control and the possible changes to this Privacy Policy.

What About External or Third Party Websites?

To the extent hyperlinks or gateways (whether through banner advertisements or otherwise) are utilized to access external or third party sites, you should be aware that these external or third party sites may collect PII and are not controlled by GMOGONE and therefore, are not subject to this Privacy Policy.  GMOGONE suggests that you check the privacy policies of these sites to determine how the proprietors of these third party sites will utilize your PII.

What About Security? 

As is appropriate for the nature of PII collected and stored by GMOGONE and implemented in a manner consistent with other similar offerings by relevant third parties, the Site has industry recognized security measures or safeguards in place to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the PII under GMOGONE’s control.  Although GMOGONE has endeavored to create a secure and reliable Site, however, the confidentiality of any communication or data cannot be absolutely guaranteed.  Accordingly, you should consider carefully if you want to submit sensitive information to GMOGONE.  GMOGONE urges you to take every precaution to protect your PII when on-line.

What About “Opting-Out” of Data Collection and Use?

For certain PII collection, you can decide on your own if you wish to provide your PII to GMOGONE (when requested) or opt-out of doing so.  For example, if GMOGONE conducts a survey, you do not have to participate unless you agree to do so.  GMOGONE also provides you with the opportunity to opt-out of certain GMOGONE business practices where your PII may be used.  For example, users may opt-out of having GMOGONE use their PII in connection with the following activities: (i) inclusion in certain programs or (ii) e-mail or other communications sent by GMOGONE.  You may also opt-out by contacting GMOGONE as set forth below.  Thus, to a certain extent, you can control the information you provide or share with GMOGONE.  Nevertheless, the collection and use of certain PII is required to provide a number of features of the Site.

What About Children?

GMOGONE cares about the safety of children on its Site and encourages parents and guardians to monitor their children’s use of the Internet.  Although the Site is suitable for a general audience, the Site is intended for use only by users who are over the legal age of majority.  Accordingly, GMOGONE does not intentionally solicit PII from children or send them requests for personal information.
