2. COLLECTION AND USE OF INFORMATION
A. Personally Identifiable Information (P.I.I.)
B. Non-Personally Identifiable Information (N.P.I.I.)
In some cases, the GL Sites may collect certain information about you that is not personally identifiable, such as your age, mailing code, product and information preferences, Site pages most frequently accessed, search terms entered, the type of Internet browser or computer operating system you are using and personal characteristics and other traits (N.P.I.I.). We may also collect N.P.I.I. about your use of the GL Sites and other Web Sites linked to the GL Sites, such as the domain name of the Web site from which you linked to the GL Sites. We use N.P.I.I. to help administer the GL Sites and to provide information about the Sites to potential business partners. We reserve the right to share aggregated N.P.I.I. with third parties. As stated earlier, N.P.I.I. does not identify you individually.
C. Use of Your PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION/SHARING of your PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
When you register on one of the GL Sites, you will be asked to provide P.I.I. This allows the GL Sites to maintain a user profile of each user so that we may customize preferences for each specific user, provide a faster method for Web visitors to submit information to GL SKINFIT INSTITUTE® (and receive information back from the GL Sites), notify users about important functionality changes to the GL Sites and about new products and services offered by the GL Sites and special offers that we believe users will find to be valuable, as well as generally allow us to better know our users and possibly tailor any specific features, promotions or other notifications to them. In addition, you may be asked to submit your P.I.I. when contacting us about questions, inquires or concerns or to provide services or support. When you provide P.I.I. on the GL Sites, GL SKINFIT INSTITUTE® may store, process and use your P.I.I. in order to carry out the purpose for which such information was provided, enhance your experience on the GL Sites, (including tailoring it to your preferences), and for the general promotion, marketing, and advertising activities related to the products and services that GL SKINFIT INSTITUTE® makes available from time to time.
GL SKINFIT INSTITUTE® may also enhance or merge your P.I.I. with data obtained from third parties, such as information provided by a co-sponsor of a particular promotion, which GL SKINFIT INSTITUTE® may then use for marketing and advertising activities. Certain services available on the GL Sites may be provided by third parties, including without limitation, sub-contractors, authorized vendors, and fulfilment companies, and GL SKINFIT INSTITUTE® may provide your P.I.I. to such third parties in order to deliver the requested service to you. GL SKINFIT INSTITUTE® may also share your P.I.I. with third party service providers, such as data processors, companies who send emails on our behalf, customer support specialists, Web hosting companies, etc. These third party service providers are not authorized to retain, share, store or use your P.I.I. for any purposes other than to provide the services for which they have been hired to provide. Finally, GL SKINFIT INSTITUTE® may disclose P.I.I. when required to do so under applicable law, including but not limited to comply with a legal requirement, judicial proceeding court order or legal process served on us; to investigate a possible crime, such as fraud or identity theft; or when we believe it is appropriate to do so to protect the rights, property, or safety of our company or other persons.
You may at any time tell us that you: i) would like to review, update or have your P.I.I. deleted from GL SKINFIT INSTITUTE® database; or ii) would like to opt-out of receiving marketing emails or postal mail from the GL Sites by unsubscribing from GL Sites.
3. PUBLIC FORUMS
From time to time you may be able to participate in certain activities on the GL Sites, such as chat rooms or bulletin boards, which will allow you the opportunity to communicate with GL SKINFIT INSTITUTE® or other users of the GL Sites. Unless otherwise noted, these activities are generally accessible to all users of the GL Sites and any information that you post or otherwise make available through these forums will be non-confidential and known to all other users. Accordingly, please exercise discretion when using these forums and when publishing any P.I.I. in these forums. You acknowledge and agree that GL SKINFIT INSTITUTE® does not review, censor, or in any manner control the content of these forums and consequently GL SKINFIT INSTITUTE® has no liability or responsibility whatsoever for information made available through these forums and that you will be liable to GL SKINFIT INSTITUTE® for any liability that we incur as a result of any statement made by you in these forums. Your use of these forums is also subject to GL SKINFIT INSTITUTE® Terms and Conditions.
The security of your P.I.I. is important to us and we are committed to handling your information carefully. We restrict access to your P.I.I. to employees who need to know that information in order to provide services. In addition, we make reasonable efforts to follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the P.I.I. submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your P.I.I., we cannot guarantee its absolute security and any transmission is at your own risk.
5. LINKS TO OTHER SITES
GL SKINFIT INSTITUTE® is concerned about the safety of children when they use the Internet. However, the GL Sites are neither directed nor targeted to children under 18 years old. GL SKINFIT INSTITUTE® has no intention to knowingly collect any P.I.I. from individuals under the age of 18 years. If GL SKINFIT INSTITUTE® learns that a child under the age of 18 years has provided P.I.I. to the GL Sites without verifiable parental consent, GL SKINFIT INSTITUTE® will use commercially reasonable efforts to delete such information from its databases. If you believe your child, who is under 18, has submitted P.I.I. to the GL Sites, please contact us via our the Contact page. We strongly encourage parents to monitor their children’s use of the Web.

Please note that we may share your P.I.I. with third parties, (per above), prior to receiving your correspondence and we will not undertake any effort to cause such third parties with whom we have shared your P.I.I. to delete or update your P.I.I., so if this concerns you, you should not share your P.I.I. with the GL Sites.
