This GAAPP Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy”) sets forth the privacy practices and policies of GAAPP. GAAPP is committed to respecting and protecting your privacy. This Privacy Policy explains how we collect, use, maintain and disclose information collected when you visit our website.

Collected Information

Information, such as your anonymized IP address, operating system, or browser information, may be collected whenever you interact with us or our website. We collect this information in order to compile usage statistics.

Site Use Information

Our web servers collect technical information relating to visitors to our Websites, including the anonymized Internet protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the Internet, browser type and version, time zone setting, browser plug-in types and versions, operating system and platform.

We may also collect information about your visit, including pages you viewed or searched for, page response times, download errors, length of visits to certain pages, page interaction information (such as scrolling, clicks, and mouse-overs), methods used to browse away from the page, and any phone number used to call our customer service number.

This information may be aggregated to measure the number of visits, average time spent on a Website, pages viewed, etc. We use this information to measure the use of our Websites and to improve the content we offer. We may share with third parties anonymized experiential information or other data on an aggregated basis without the use of any information that personally identifies you.

Cookies

Whenever you interact with us or our website, GAAPP may place a “cookie” in the browser files of your computer. Cookies are data files that help your browser communicate with GAAPP.

Most browsers are set to accept cookies by default. You can reject or block cookies by changing your browser settings. However, if your browser rejects or blocks a cookie, it may impact your ability to use some of our website and our service.

Our websites use Google Analytics to track what a visitor sees on our website and which pages they visit. We use this data to determine the number of people using our site, to better understand how they find and use our web pages, and to see their journey through the websites.

Although Google Analytics records data such as geographical location, the device being used to access our website, internet browser, and operating system, it does not personally identify any person. Google Analytics also records a computer’s IP address, and although this could be used to personally identify a person, Google does not grant access to this.

Our websites contain links to other websites belonging to third parties and we sometimes choose to participate in social networking websites including but not limited to Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn, and Facebook. We do not have any control over the privacy practices of these other websites or applications. It is a person’s individual responsibility to make sure when they leave our website that they have read and understood that website’s privacy policy in addition to our own.
