Global Wave Group (“Global Wave“) operates globalwavegroup.com and may operate other websites. It is Global Wave’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Global Wave 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. Global Wave’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Global Wave’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Global Wave may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Global Wave also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on globalwavegroup.com blogs/sites. Global Wave only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Global Wave’s websites choose to interact with Global Wave in ways that require Global Wave to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Global Wave gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at globalwavegroup.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Global Wave are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Global Wave collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Global Wave. Global Wave does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Global Wave may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Global Wave may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Global Wave does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Global Wave discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Global Wave’s behalf or to provide services available at Global Wave’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Global Wave’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Global Wave will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Global Wave discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Global Wave believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Global Wave, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Global Wave website and have supplied your email address, Global Wave may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Global Wave and our products. If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Global Wave takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Global Wave, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Global Wave goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Global Wave may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
