This Policy covers the treatment of personally-identifiable information, i.e. any information that identifies an individual, or can be used in conjunction with other information to identify an individual (“Personal Information”) and other information gathered by G2MC when you are visiting a Website and / or using the Services. This Policy also covers G2MC’s treatment of any Personal Information that G2MC may share with its business partners or other third parties under very limited circumstances.
This Policy does not apply to the general practices and treatment of information (whether Personal or not) by third parties that G2MC does not own or control, including but not limited to any third-party websites or services that you elect to access through the Websites or via a link from the Websites (“Third-Party Websites”), or to individuals that G2MC does not manage or employ. While we attempt to facilitate access or link only to those Third-Party Websites that share our respect for your privacy, we cannot take responsibility for the content or privacy policies of those Third-Party Websites. We encourage you to carefully review the privacy policies of any Third-Party Websites you access. We have named and provided links to the most important of these Third-Party Websites elsewhere in this Policy.
Finally, this Policy does not cover any Personal Information you send to G2MC via any non-secured, non-encrypted mode of communications such as email, instant messenger or other messaging service, or Twitter or any other social media, as communications via these methods may be subject to interception, loss, or alteration. While we welcome your comments and suggestions sent to us in this manner, we encourage you to carefully examine what Personal Information you send to G2MC via these methods.
G2MC does not, as a matter of course, gather any of your Personal Information while you visit the Websites or are using the Services, unless you are asked to provide such information, for example by signing up for an account or making a purchase of Products. Personal Information is only gathered with your informed consent. Where you have provided Personal Information, it will only be used for the stated purpose, as detailed more specifically in the next section.
The following is an exhaustive list of Personal Information collected from you when you visit the Websites use the Services and what we use it for. You acknowledge and agree that you are submitting this Personal Information with your informed consent.
In addition to the functions and uses just described, G2MC may also use your Personal Information you have submitted in order to:
G2MC uses only industry best practices (physical, electronic and procedural) in keeping any data collected (including Personal Information) secure. In addition, G2MC uses third-party vendors and hosting partners to provide the necessary hardware, software, networking, storage, and related technology required to operate the Websites and Services, and these third parties have been selected for their high standards of security, both electronic and physical. For example, G2MC uses OVH and Écritel, recognized leaders in secure data, for hosting of the Websites and Services, and storage of User data including Personal Information. Please note that these third parties may not be located in your home jurisdiction – please see the “Transfer of Personal Information Outside Your Home Jurisdiction” section further in this Policy for more information.
Finally, all information, including Personal Information, is transferred with encryption using Secure Sockets Layer (“SSL”), a robust security standard for Internet data transfer and transactions. You can use your browser to check the valid SSL security certificate of any of the Websites.
Except as provided in the next paragraph and specified in the next three sections of this Policy, G2MC does not divulge any Personal Information gathered via the Websites or Services to third parties. Moreover, G2MC does not sell, rent, trade or license any Personal Information regarding its Websites’ visitors or Users to third parties. Only the employees, representatives, subcontractors, officers, agents, or assigns of G2MC are responsible for the management and development of the Websites and Services, and only these individuals have access to the information collected there. These employees, representatives, subcontractors, officers, agents or assigns all have been instructed to comply with the Policy, and are under contractual obligations of non-disclosure.
G2MC uses certain “Third-Party Services” in order to augment the functionalities of the Websites and Services. When you submit Personal Information to us for the use of these functionalities you acknowledge and agree to the transfer of Personal Information to these Third-Party Services. The Third-Party Services used and the information sent to them and the purposes for their use are:
G2MC currently uses MailChimp to send out and manage our newsletter. Contact Information is transferred to MailChimp in order for our email communications to function properly. Your Contact Information is only used for the proper sending out of the newsletter; MailChimp does not use this Personal Information for any other purpose and will not transfer or sell your Personal Information to any other third party. You may unsubscribe from receiving commercial or promotional emails from us at any time by following the link at the bottom of any email sent to you.

G2MC’s practices in regards to its email are designed to be compliant with anti-spam laws, specifically the law unofficially called “CASL”, or Canada’s Anti-Spam Law (S.C. 2010, c. 23). If you believe you have received email in violation of these laws, please contact us using the contact information further up in this Policy.
G2MC currently uses the “Third-Party Payment Processors” Stripe and PayPal for processing of secured payments for purchases of Products. When you make a payment through the Services, your Billing Information is transferred securely via SSL from the Services to the Third-Party Payment Processor being used. No Billing Information is ever stored on servers controlled by G2MC. The Third-Party Payment Processors have our permission to store, on behalf of G2MC, the data pertaining to the executed transactions by Purchasers (including all Billing Information) with the goal of ensuring a secure method of payment and proof of purchase archive, allowing for the protection of Purchasers, and for follow-up as needed. This data may be used for validation and registration purposes of Purchasers, and to trace any fraudulent activities if necessary.
G2MC may automatically collect certain information using third-party analytics programs such as Optimizely and Google Analytics to help us understand how our Users use the Websites and Services, but none of this information identifies you personally.

We use information collected in this manner only to better understand your needs and the needs of Website visitors and Services Users in the aggregate. G2MC also makes use of information gathered for statistical purposes to keep track of the number of visits to the Websites, the specific pages on the Websites, and Users with a view to introducing improvements to the Websites and Services.
In addition to the information collected by the analytics programs as described in the previous section, we may also generate, use and disclose aggregated and / or anonymized information and statistics about the Services and Services Users for marketing and strategic purposes. However, no User of our Services will be individually identifiable from these aggregated and / or anonymized information and statistics.
G2MC uses tracking technology (“cookies” and related technology such as tags, pixels and web beacons) on the Websites and by visiting a Website or using the Services you agree to their use. Cookies are small text files placed on your computer or device when you visit a website, in order to track use of the site and to improve the user experience by storing certain data on your computer. The Websites use “session cookies,” which improve your user experience by storing certain information from your current visit on your computer or device while you are a Logged-in User or making a purchase of Products.

Specifically, G2MC uses the remarketing features of interest-based advertising of Google AdWords that delivers you advertisements that will be of particular interest to you, based on your browsing and activity history at our websites. These advertisements will appear on third-party websites around the web. Google uses specific cookies to allow them to serve these ads around the web.
You may prevent this type of advertising by deleting the appropriate Google cookie through your browser, though this may not be permanent. For a more permanent solution, you may opt out of such Google advertising by following Google’s instructions.
G2MC also advertises using Facebook Custom Audience, to display advertisements to you on Facebook that will be of interest to you, and by visiting the Websites or using the Services you consent to this use. Facebook may collect or receive information from our Websites and other websites and use that information to provide measurement services and targeted ads.

If you wish to inquire about and verify and / or correct Personal Information G2MC holds about you, or if you wish to have all your Personal Information permanently deleted from our records, please contact us using the contact information further up in this Policy. Please note that deletion of your Personal Information may make it impossible for you to use the Services, or certain portions thereof, and G2MC and its Representatives accepts no responsibility for any damages, pecuniary or otherwise, resulting therefrom. If you request deletion of your Personal Information, G2MC reserves the right to retain some of your Personal Information for a reasonable time in order to satisfy our legal obligations or under a legal procedure of any sort.
Users may access the Websites from any country in the world, though in certain countries the functionalities of the Services may be limited. G2MC and its third-party vendors, including service providers and hosting partners, are located in the United States and Canada. You acknowledge that G2MC and our third-party vendors may be located in jurisdictions or countries where the privacy laws may not be as protective as those in your home country, state, province or other governmental jurisdiction, and consent to the transfer of your Personal Information to such countries.
Despite G2MC’s best efforts to ensure that third parties will not access or obtain your Personal Information through your use of the Services or visiting the Websites, complete confidentiality and security cannot currently be guaranteed on the Internet and / or where data is transferred via digital wireless technology of any type. Communication via the Internet or wireless data transmission is subject to interception, loss, or alteration.
