We at GSI Environmental Inc. ("GSI") are committed to respecting your online privacy and recognize your need for appropriate protection and management of any personally identifiable information ("Personal Information") you share with us.
Personal Information means any information that may be used to identify an individual, including, but not limited to, a first and last name, a home or other physical address, an e-mail address or other contact information, whether at work or at home. In general, you can visit GSI's web pages without telling us who you are or revealing any Personal Information about yourself.
If you choose to provide us with your Personal Information on the web, we may transfer that Information, within GSI or to GSI's third party service providers, across borders and from your country or jurisdiction to other countries or jurisdictions around the world including, specifically, the United States.
Some of our web pages utilize "cookies" and other tracking technologies. A "cookie" is a small text file that may be used, for example, to collect information about web site activity. Some cookies and other technologies may serve to recall Personal Information previously indicated by a web user. Most browsers allow you to control cookies, including whether or not to accept them and how to remove them.
You may set most browsers to notify you if you receive a cookie or you may choose to block cookies with your browser. Some web sites will not allow you to complete certain activities if cookies are disabled. For example, our consumer e-commerce site sometimes uses session cookies and persistent cookies to process transactions. If you do not accept cookies, the associated shopping cart will not work and you will not be able to order. In such a case, please feel free to call our offices at713-522-6300 for assistance with your order.
You may choose whether or not to provide Personal Information to GSI. If you choose not to provide the Personal Information we request, you can still visit most of GSI's web sites, but you may be unable to access certain options, offers, services, and products that require our interaction with you.
If you chose to have a relationship with GSI, such as a contractual, customer, or other business relationship, we will naturally continue to contact you in connection with that business relationship.
Wherever your Personal Information may be held within GSI or on its behalf, we intend to take reasonable and appropriate steps to protect the Personal Information that you share with us from unauthorized access or disclosure.
Third parties provide certain services available on GSI’s web sites on GSI's behalf. GSI may provide information, including Personal Information, which GSI collects on the web to third party service providers to help us deliver programs, products, information and services. Service providers are also an important means by which GSI maintains its billing, payment processing, and fulfillment capabilities. For example, if we need to ship something to you, we must share your name and address with a shipping company. In such cases, we only provide third party agents with the minimum amount of information needed to complete the requested service or transaction. GSI will take reasonable steps to ensure that these third party service providers are obligated to protect Personal Information on GSI's behalf.
GSI does not intend to transfer Personal Information to third parties who are not bound to act on GSI's behalf unless such transfer is legally required. Nevertheless, your personally identifiable information may be transferred in connection with a sale, merger, transfer, exchange or other disposition (whether of assets, stock or otherwise) of all or a portion of a business of GSI and/or its subsidiaries.
GSI’s web site is not structured to attract children. Accordingly, we do not intend to collect Personal Information from anyone we know to be under 13 years of age. If we learn that we have personal information concerning a child under the age of 13, we will delete that information from our systems.
