INFORMATION WE COLLECT
You can use our website without divulging any personally identifiable information including your email address. Our website does not collect personally identifiable information about individuals except when such individuals specifically provide such information on a voluntary basis, such as when registering at our website, requesting product information, or accessing our “application” or “pay now” features. Group Link Inc. uses such information collected to provide the products or services you request, to improve and customize the content you see, and to contact you about special promotions and new products if requested.
Group Link Inc collects personally identifiable information on the site. Personal information includes, among other things, a user’s name, address, business address, telephone number, business telephone number, and email address. Fields in which we collect such required information are marked with an asterisk (*). We also may ask you for your date of birth and information about your interests so that we can combine such information with the information described above. We use that information so that both you and we can take advantage of the interactivity of the internet to provide you with services and offers. You may always choose whether to respond or not.
NON-PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
In addition to personal information, Group Link Inc may also gather non-personally identifiable information, which may be used by Group Link Inc. Generally, “non-personally identifiable information” means information that is collected through “traffic data” and may entail the use of “cookies,” “IP addresses,” “pixel tags” or other numeric codes used to identify a computer or monitor how or when a user accesses the site or communications.

PRIVACY AND CHANGE OF CONTROL
In the event Group Link Inc goes through a business transition, such as a merger, being acquired by another company, or selling a portion of its assets, users’ personal information will, in most instances, be part of the assets transferred.
When you access our website, we, or companies we hire to track how our website is used, may place small data files called “cookies” on your computer.
We send a "session cookie" to your computer when you log in to your account or otherwise use the Group Link Services. This type of cookie helps us to recognize you if you visit multiple pages on our site during the same session, so that we don’t need to ask you for your password on each page. Once you log out or close your browser, this cookie expires and no longer has any effect.
We also use longer-lasting cookies for other purposes such as to display your e-mail address on our sign-in form, so that you don't need to retype the e-mail address each time you log in to your account.
We encode our cookies so that only we can interpret the information stored in them. You are free to decline our cookies if your browser permits, but doing so may interfere with your use of our website. We may also collect information about your computer or other access device to mitigate risk and for fraud prevention purposes.
You may encounter cookies from third parties when using the Group Link Services on websites that we do not control (for example, if you view a webpage created by a third party or use an application developed by a third party, there may be a cookie placed by that web page or application).
PIXEL TAGS AND COOKIES
We may use an email delivery and marketing company to send emails. Pixel tags and cookies are used in those email messages and at our website to help us measure the effectiveness of our marketing and how visitors use our site. Pixel tags (sometimes also called “clear GIFs”) are small graphic files, invisible to the human eye, which allow websites or other online services to track users. Group Link Inc. and our third-party advertising company uses pixel tags in HTML-enabled email to track whether (and when) the recipient opened the message. The data on your use of our site may be linked to the Personal Information you have chosen to share with us when you register. Most internet browsers automatically accept cookies. However, you can instruct your browser, by editing its options, to stop accepting cookies or prompt you before accepting a cookie from the sites you visit. If you decide not to accept our cookies, your ability to use some features on our site may be impaired. Certain visitors to our site may have previously received targeted promotional materials relative to the site. Group Link Inc. may share site usage information about such visitors with reputable third parties for the purpose of targeting future campaigns and upgrading visitor information used in reporting statistics. Although our marketing company logs the information coming from our site on our behalf, we control how that data may and may not be used.
