Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Gig Centric collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Gig Centric’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Gig Centric’s visitors use its website.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Gig Centric’s websites choose to interact with Gig Centric in ways that require Gig Centric to gather personally-identifying information.

Those who engage in transactions with Gig Centric – by purchasing access to one of Gig Centric’s services, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Gig Centric collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Gig Centric. Gig Centric does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Gig Centric takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
