Grinders & Such, Inc. (“Grinders”) is committed to protecting your privacy.

 

This Online Privacy Statement applies to data collected by Grinders through the website and services that display these terms. The Online Privacy Statement does not apply to sites that do not display or link to this statement or that have their own privacy statements.

Collection of Information: Grinders may ask you to provide personal information, such as name, home address, work address, phone number, holder of a Golden Buckeye card, birth date, birth month and email address. Grinders may use this information to operate and improve its sites and services. Grinders also may use the personal information to communicate with you. Grinders may send communications such as welcome letters, birthday wishes or important notices. Personal information collected on Grinders’ site and services may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which Grinders or its affiliates, subsidiaries or service providers maintain facilities.

Collection and use of minors’ personal information: Grinders’ website and services are intended for general audiences and Grinders does not knowingly collect any personal information from minors. When Grinders does collect age information, and users identify themselves as under 18, the site will either block such users from providing personal information or will seek to obtain consent from parents for the collection, use, and sharing of the minor’s personal information.

Sharing of your personal information: Grinders may disclose your personal information to the entities linked from Grinders’ website, namely Grinders’ partners, if you sign up for specific programs offered by Grinders.

Sale of information to third parties: Grinders will not sell any of your personal information to third parties, except to comply with applicable law or valid legal process to protect the personal safety of our users or the public.

Subcontractor or third party: Grinders reserves the right to allow a subcontractor and/or third party to analyze the data that is collected on the website. Grinders may have separate agreements with subcontractors and/or third parties that receive data that is collected to ensure the safety of data collected.

Security of your personal information: Grinders is committed to protecting the security of your personal information and information collected for advertising purposes. Grinders uses a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Grinders operates secure data networks protected by industry standard firewall and password protection systems. Grinders’ security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary and only authorized individuals have access to the information provided by Grinders’ customers.

Usage tracking: Grinders tracks user traffic patterns throughout all of our sites. Grinders does not correlate this information with data about individual users. Grinders does break down overall usage statistics according to a user’s domain name, browser type and MIME type by reading this information from a browser string (information contained in every user’s browser). Grinders may use tracking information to determine which areas of our sites users like and do not like based on traffic to those areas. Grinders does not track what individuals read, but rather how well each page performs overall. Grinders may track how many users link to one of Grinders’ partner sites but will not associate this tracking with the individual user.

Use of Cookies: Grinders may use a text file called a “cookie” to enable you to sign in to our services and to help personalize your online experience. The cookie itself does not contain personal information but it will enable Grinders to relate your use of this site to information that you have specifically and knowingly provided. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer.

One of the primary purposes of a cookie is to store your preferences and other information on your computer in order to save you time by eliminating the need to repeatedly enter the same information and to display your personalized content and appropriate advertising on later visits to the sites.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to sign in or use other interactive features that depend on cookies and some advertising preferences that are dependent on cookies may not be able to be respected.

You may stop the delivery of future promotional emails from Grinders sites and services by following the specific instructions in the email you receive. You may not opt out of receiving important notices from Grinders such as changes to terms, conditions, and policies.

By using this site, you consent to the collection and use of this information by Grinders. Grinders may at any time change and/or update our Online Privacy Statement and we will post these changes so that you are aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances it is disclosed.

Retention of Personal Information: Grinders will retain your personal information for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Online Privacy Statement unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law.
