Personal information collected on our website by the forms that are filled out by visitors or clients is used solely for our own purposes. These may include:
The only information that we collect is that which is specifically entered into the online forms on our site as well as the information in our log files, which is limited to the IP address of the person visiting our site.
Every computer connected to the Internet is given a set of numbers, that serve as that computer’s “Internet Protocol” IP address. When a visitor requests a page from our site, our web servers automatically recognize that visitor’s IP address. The IP address reveals nothing personal about you other than the IP address from which you have accessed our Site. We use this information to examine our web site traffic in aggregate. We do not collect and evaluate this information for specific individuals except to investigate misuse of our website. Our Web servers do not automatically record e-mail addresses of the visitors.
We maintain a strict “No-Spam” policy, which means that we do not sell, rent, or otherwise give your e-mail address to a third-party, without your consent.
A cookie is a small piece of data that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer. We use this information to provide you with a better online experience. On revisiting our website or in using the files, our computer server will recognise the cookie and give us information about your use of the Site. Most browsers accept cookies automatically, but usually you can alter the settings of your browser to prevent automatic acceptance. If you choose not to receive cookies, you may still use the Site but you may find that the Site may not function properly or is slower than when you allow a cookie to be installed on your machine.
We use your information to process orders you make from our Website. We may contact you from time to time to let you know about our services which may include sending you newsletters and news on events that you may be interested in. You can elect not to receive such marketing material at any time by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Apart from entities that are involved in helping us to run our Site, we do not give your information to any third parties. We may provide information to Stripe (our payment provider), which provides credit card payment processing services to us. Gem Research and Stripe will share information with each other only to the extent necessary for the purposes of processing payments you make for materials from our Site and to enable us to retrieve payments from Stripe. We reserve the right to access and disclose individually identifiable information (i) to comply with applicable laws and government requests, (ii) to be able to operate our systems properly or (iii) to protect ourselves or our users.
