Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through GEM InSight public message boards or forums, this information may be collected and used by others.

GEM InSight encourages you to review the privacy statements of websites you choose to link to from GEM InSight so that you can understand how those websites collect, use and share your information. GEM InSight is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on websites outside of the GEM InSight and GEM InSight family of websites or the use of your information by such outside websites.

Use of your Personal Information

GEM InSight collects and uses your personal information to operate the GEM InSight website and deliver the services you have requested. GEM InSight may also use your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from GEM InSight and its affiliates. GEM InSight may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services.

GEM InSight does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. GEM InSight may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, or provide customer support. Such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to GEM InSight, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.

Use of Cookies

The GEM InSight website uses "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies are not used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize GEM InSight pages, or register with GEM InSight site or services, a cookie helps GEM InSight to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same GEM InSight website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the GEM InSight features that you customized.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the GEM InSight services or websites you visit.

Security of your Personal Information

No method of safeguarding information is 100% secure. GEM InSight uses a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. GEM InSight secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

Changes to this Statement

GEM InSight may occasionally update this Statement of Privacy. GEM InSight encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how GEM InSight is protecting your information. When such a change is made, we will update the "Last Updated" date above.
