At Gale International we respect your right to privacy and we understand that, as a visitor to our website, you prefer to control your own personal information preferences. For this reason, we may ask you to register or provide personal information and preferences when you visit certain areas of our website, request information, register for events or subscribe to company newsletters.
Your privacy is extremely important to us, and your information is kept strictly confidential and will never be given to anyone outside our company.
Gale International respects the rights users give us when opting to receive e-mail or other forms of communication and enforces internal policies to preserve those rights. It is our objective to retain the long-term ability to continue to communicate with our customers and interested parties.
If you do not want Gale International or Gale International representatives to contact you, you may opt-out of this preference at any time, whether you are online or by contacting Gale International directly. As an option, you will always have the flexibility to opt back in at anytime based on previous information or newly updated information.
Collecting other personal information
When you browse our websites, you are able to do so anonymously. Generally, we do not collect personal information when you browse - not even your email address. Your browser, however, does automatically tell us the type of computer and operating system you are using.
Like most standard Web site servers our website uses log files and cookies. A cookie is a small line of text that is stored with your web browser for record-keeping purposes and helps Gale International provide better service to you. Your browser has an option to accept, reject, or provide you with notice when a cookie is sent.
Once a user enters our websites, a cookie follows them through their click stream path collecting information including internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks. This information is used to analyze trends, administer the site, track users movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use only. IP addresses, etc. are not linked to personally identifiable information.
Gale International uses the data collected from visitor cookies in aggregate form only and does not tie to them any personally identifiable information. Use of this information helps us better understand what users are seeking and learning on our websites and helps us identify potential navigation issues.
How we protect your personal information
Gale International will always protect the personal information that you share with us. Gale International stores information internally in a controlled, secure environment.
We occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, including packaging, mailing and delivering purchases, sending postal mail and processing event registration. We will only provide those companies the information they need to deliver the service, and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
If Gale International requests general demographic information, this information is limited to reporting purposes only; users remain anonymous. Phone numbers, e-mail addresses, and postal addresses are never shared for demographic reports with outside entities.
Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on our website, or as required by law.
How to update your personal information
You can help Gale International maintain the accuracy of your personal information by notifying us when you change your name, address, title, phone number, e-mail address, or your content preferences. If at any time you wish to update your information or preferences, or you prefer to stop receiving communication from Gale International, feel free to contact us at any time.
Our website contains links to other websites. Gale International assumes no responsibility for the content or the privacy policies and practices of such websites. Gale International encourages you to read the privacy statements of these linked sites; their privacy practices may differ from ours.
Notification of Changes
If we make any material changes in our privacy practices that do not affect user information already stored in our database, we will post a prominent notice on our Web site notifying users of the change. In some cases where we post a notice we will also email users, who have opted to receive communications from us, notifying them of the changes in our privacy practices.
