How do you access and/or modify your information or choices?
If you visit our Web Site and volunteer personally identifiable information, you may modify, update or delete such information by visiting your account where you will have the opportunity to access and revise certain of your personally identifiable information, and to update your preferences regarding what information you want to receive from us, or by clicking on the "Contact GBI" link and sending us an e-mail. You should be aware, however, that it is not always possible to completely remove or modify information in our databases. In addition, please be aware that your ability to opt out from receiving marketing and promotional materials does not change our right to contact you regarding your use of our Web Site.
California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits users who are California residents to annually request and obtain a list of any third parties to whom we disclosed personal information for direct marketing purposes during the preceding calendar year and any categories of personal information shared. If you are a California resident, you may make sure a request by sending us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
We take reasonable steps to maintain the security of the personally identifiable information that we collect, including limiting the number of people who have physical access to our database servers, as well as installing electronic security systems that guard against unauthorized access. However, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be completely secure. Accordingly, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you transmit to us, so you do so at your own risk.
