GHI recognizes the importance of protecting the privacy of all information provided by visitors to and users of this Site. We created the following policy guidelines to guide our relationships with our users based on a fundamental respect for your right to privacy.
Collection and Security of Personal Information
GHI collects some information voluntarily offered by users of this Site. GHI uses reasonable precautions to maintain the security of the personal information of users and to disclose such information only to third parties after permission from the user. However, no security system is perfect. Therefore, GHI is not responsible if someone manages to circumvent our security measures and gain access to the database, including information pertaining to individual users, nor can we be responsible for any use, reproduction, or disclosure they may make of it.
Disclosure to Third Parties
GHI may disclose specific user information (such as identity and contact information) if we believe that such disclosure is necessary or desirable to: (i) fulfill legal or regulatory requirements, (ii) protect our rights or those of others, (iii) prevent or mitigate harm or damage of any kind or nature, or (iv) address or seek redress for a violation of these Terms or other obligations to GHI or any third party, including our partners, advertisers, and other users.
Additionally, GHI may collect, analyze, and disclose to others aggregated information (which includes users’ specific information but only as an unidentifiable part of the aggregate) gathered from overall use of the Site or features or areas of the Site. Among other purposes, this information allows us to analyze usage trends and other items so that we can maintain an effective, responsive site.
Finally, if GHI is sold (in whole or part), merged with, or otherwise acquired by a third party, then your information may be (i) disclosed, under duty of confidentiality, to a potential purchaser or merger partner as part of the pre-closing due diligence process, or (ii) included among the transferred assets.
Contact by GHI
Through the use of e-mail addresses provided at registration, entry, or otherwise, GHI may periodically send out e-mail newsletters, promotional e-mail, and the like to our users about Services offered by GHI. Upon written request, we will remove you (and your information) from our database or permit you to otherwise “opt-out” of any further e-mail newsletters or contact.
Third-Party Partners, Linked Sites, and Advertisers
If any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable, then that provision, to the extent unenforceable, shall be struck, and shall not affect the validity or enforceability of the remaining provisions. Your rights under these Terms are personal, nonexclusive, and nontransferable. Headings are for reference purposes only and in no way define or limit the scope or extent of any provision of these Terms. Our failure to act with respect to a breach by you or others does not waive our right to act with respect to subsequent or similar breaches. Nothing herein shall be deemed to confer any third-party rights or benefits. These Terms set forth the entire understanding and agreement between you and us with respect to this subject matter.
Governing Law and Jurisdiction.
All matters relating to the Site (including the Terms, Content, and Services), and any dispute or claim arising therefrom or related thereto (in each case, including non-contractual disputes or claims), shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Michigan without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule (whether of the State of Michigan or any other jurisdiction). Any legal suit, action, or proceeding arising out of, or related to, these Terms or the Services shall be instituted exclusively in the federal courts of the United States or the courts of the State of Michigan although we retain the right to bring any suit, action, or proceeding against you for breach of these Terms in your country of residence or any other relevant country. You waive any and all objections to the exercise of jurisdiction over you by such courts and to venue in such courts.
If you have any questions or concerns about the Policy, then you may email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
