Privacy Policy


GI Labs Privacy Policy


GI Labs collects and uses personal information solely for the purpose of conducting business and developing an understanding of its customers.

GI Labs assumes full accountability for the personal information within its possession and control. This organization has appointed a privacy officer as custodian of all privacy matters and legal compliance with privacy laws.

GI Labs obtains personal information directly from the individual to whom the information belongs. Individuals are entitled to know how GI Labs uses personal information and this organization will limit the use of any personal information collected only to what is needed for those stated purposes. GI Labs will obtain individual consent if personal information is to be used for any other purpose. GI Labs will not use that information without the consent of the individual. Under no circumstances will GI Labs sell, distribute, or otherwise disclose personal information or contact lists to third parties. However, limited disclosure may be required as part of GI Labs fulfilling its stated business duties and day-to-day operations. For example, we may need to pass on limited information to agreed-upon consultants, suppliers or couriers, but only with the understanding that these parties use the information to the extent necessary for fulfilling their own business duties. While IP addresses will be logged in order to administer the site, track visitor movement, and gather demographic information, these IP addresses are not linked to any personally identifiable information.

GI Labs will retain personal information only for the duration necessary for conducting business. Once personal information is no longer required, it will be destroyed in a safe and secure manner. However, certain laws may require that certain personal information be kept for a specified amount of time. Where this is the case, the law will supersede this policy.

GI Labs vows to protect personal information with the appropriate security measures, physical safeguards, and electronic precautions. GI Labs maintains personal information through a combination of paper and electronic files. Where required by law or disaster recovery/business continuity policies, older records may be stored in a secure, offsite location.

Access to personal information will be authorized only for the employees and other agents of GI Labs who require the information to perform their job duties, and to those otherwise authorized by law.

GI Labs computer and network systems are secured by complex passwords. Only authorized individuals may access secure systems and databases.

Routers and servers connected to the Internet are protected by a firewall, and are further protected by appropriate software solutions that are regularly updated.

This website may contain links to other sites, but GI Labs is not responsible for the privacy practices of other organizations' sites.

Any questions or concerns regarding this Website Privacy Policy can be addressed by contacting GI Labs at GI Labs will investigate and respond to concerns about any aspect of the handling of personal information.
