Our Use And Disclosure of Information
Internal Uses of Your Personally Identifiable Information
We collect, store, and process your personally identifiable information on servers located in the United States. Due to the unpredictable nature of Internet routing, your information may pass through other countries while in transit to our servers. We use the information we collect about you in order to:
• Develop and deliver our services.
• Process your transactions.
• Provide customer service and manage your account.
• Improve our products, services, and marketing.
We provide access to personally identifiable information about our users only to those who require it for the above purposes.
Giuseppe Grammatico will not sell or rent any of your personally identifiable information to third parties. Giuseppe Grammatico will not share any of your personally identifiable information with third parties except in the limited circumstances described below.
We share information with service providers under contract who help with our business operations such as payment and order processing, fraud investigation, bill collection, and information management and analytics. If content generation is included in your services, we may share information with service providers under contract to create, edit and/or publish such content. These third parties are obligated to protect your information and are contractually prohibited from using your personally identifiable information for any other purpose. They are never permitted to share your information with any third parties. They are authorized to use your personal information only as necessary to provide these services to Giuseppe Grammatico.
We disclose information that we, in good faith, believe is appropriate to cooperate in investigations of fraud or other illegal activity, to conduct investigations of violations of our Privacy of Use, and/or to protect our rights and protect your safety and the safety of others. For example, this means that if we conduct a fraud investigation and conclude that one side has engaged in deceptive practices, we reserve the right to provide that person or entity’s contact information (but not bank account or credit card information) to victims who request it.
We disclose information in response to a subpoena, warrant, court order, levy, attachment, order of a court-appointed receiver, or other comparable legal process, including subpoenas from private parties in a civil action. If the subpoena seeks information about an identified subscriber or limited group of subscribers, we will make reasonable business efforts to contact the subscriber(s) before providing information to the party that requests it. We cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so in all cases, whether due to a time limit, court order, inability to effectively contact a subscriber, or other circumstances.
When a user signs up for a co-branded version of our service through links to ggthefranchiseguide.com from our co-branded partner’s website, Giuseppe Grammatico will share with the co-branded partner that user’s name, e-mail address, and physical address in order to provide enhanced integration between Giuseppe Grammatico’s services and the services of our co-branded partner. If you do not want your information shared with Giuseppe Grammatico’s co-branded partner, sign up directly through ggthefranchiseguide.com and other sub-domains and not through a link from our partner’s website.
We disclose information to your agent or legal representative (such as the holder of a power of attorney that you grant, or a guardian appointed for you).
We share information with companies that provide public relations and marketing services for us. Such information will only be shared by us to customize, measure and improve our products, services, and advertising. It will not be shared with third parties for their marketing purposes. These third parties are contractually obligated to protect your information and are prohibited from using your personally identifiable information for any other purpose.
We share your information with our parent, subsidiaries, and joint ventures to help coordinate the services we provide to you, enforce our terms and conditions, and promote trust and safety.
The implementation of our Services, by its very nature, may require using your personally identifiable information to locate other information about you. Such use may include, but not be limited to, using your information to search publicly accessible Internet sites as well as searching private information databases and sites.
The implementation of our Services, by its very nature, may require revealing your personally identifiable information in order to effect the removal of Internet content about you. For example, we may have to disclose your name to a website in order to notify them to remove Internet content about you. This occurs with your express permission for a specific, given purpose.
In the event that Giuseppe Grammatico goes through a business transition, such as a merger, an acquisition by another company, or a sale of a portion of its assets, users’ personally identifiable information will, in most instances, be part of the assets transferred. Users will be notified via prominent notice on the site for 30 days after a change of ownership or control of their personally identifiable information. If, as a result of the business transition, a user’s personally identifiable information will be used in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection, users will be given a choice consistent with our notification of changes section.
