Privacy Statement

GIGL is committed to protecting your privacy and developing technology that gives you the most powerful and safe online experience. This Statement of Privacy applies to the GIGL Website and governs data collection and usage. By using the GIGL Website, you consent to the data practices described in this statement.

Collection of your Personal Information

GIGL collects personally identifiable information, such as your email address, name, home or work address or telephone number. GIGL also collects anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your postcode, gender, preferences, interests and favourites.

There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by GIGL. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring Web site addresses. This information is used by GIGL for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the GIGL Website.

Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through GIGL public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others. Note: GIGL does not read any of your private online communications.

GIGL encourages you to review the privacy statements of websites you choose to link to from GIGL so that you can understand how those websites collect, use and share your information. GIGL is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on websites outside of the GIGL and GIGL family of websites.

Use of your Personal Information

GIGL collects and uses your personal information to operate the GIGL Website and deliver the services you have requested. GIGL also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from GIGL and its affiliates. GIGL may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.

GIGL does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties.  GIGL does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.

GIGL keeps track of the Websites and pages our customers visit within GIGL, in order to determine what GIGL services are the most popular.

GIGL Websites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on GIGL or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of GIGL; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of GIGL, or the public.

Use of Cookies

The GIGL Website use “cookies” to help you personalise your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a webpage server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalise GIGL pages, or register with GIGL site or services, a cookie helps GIGL to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same GIGL Website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the GIGL features that you customised.

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 fully experience the interactive features of the GIGL services or websites you visit.

We suggest consulting the Help section of your browser or taking a look at the About Cookies website which offers guidance for all modern browsers.

Security of your Personal Information

GIGL secures your personal information from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. GIGL secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorised access, use or disclosure.

Changes to this Statement

GIGL will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. GIGL encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how GIGL is protecting your information.
