a) Gee Vision Inc. (the "Company") is totally committed to providing the safest and most secure environment for you to interact with us on our website. We are dedicated to protecting your privacy and handling any personal information we receive from you with care and respect.
b) We encourage the website visitors ("Users") to get as much out of the site as possible, but at the same time also ensure that all Users know and protect their private and personal information.
FOR PROTECTION OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION AND DATA WE WOULD URGE YOU TO FOLLOW THE BELOW GUIDELINES:
1. DO NOT GIVE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION TO UNKNOWN SOURCES
Never give personal information to people you don't know. Sometimes you might wish to give out personal information for good reasons.
If you are a minor, check with your parents or guardians before sharing any personal information on any website. There's no harm in checking first if you're not sure! Talk to your parents about it first.
2. WHAT INFORMATION IS COLLECTED AT THE WEBSITE?
a) We endeavor to create website content which requires minimum collection of information from our users. Generally, the site limits collection of information to what is known as non-personally identifiable information (e.g. first name, age, birthday, gender, city or town). This information is collected so visitors can participate in activities without giving out unnecessary personal information.
b) Where we need extra information, e.g. kids'/parents' email addresses, telephone numbers (as explained below) or to offer extra online activities, we let the visitors know the reason for which we are collecting the information and what we will do with it. We do not as a condition to a visitor's participation in any of our online activities require the disclosure of more information than is reasonably necessary.
c) There are some areas of the site that ask visitors to enter personally identifiable information. We have made this safer and easier for the Users to use by establishing a Name and Password facility. This requires the User to enter in personally identifiable information only once at the time of registration, but after that they only require to put in their Name and Password.
d) This personal information is added to our database and is used for the purpose of fulfilling prizes, mailing/emailing newsletters and birthday cards, emailing our newsletters and other marketing initiatives.
e) The personal information is not sold or shared to any third party and is not accessible or displayed anywhere on the Site.
The main way we collect personally identifiable information is through our registration process. In order to take part in our registered member activities, we ask Users to submit personal information ("Personal Information") such as full name, email address, zip code and birthday. In the event User is a child below 18 years of age, we remind them to ask a parent/guardian for permission first. The information is used to keep Users informed about competitions through message boards, newsletters, and competition information.
We do not obtain or require disclosure of sensitive Personal Information (such as ethnic origin or religion), but if you choose to provide us with such sensitive personal data, we may assume such sensitive information is provided with your consent.
