GC Collected Information

GC Site Activity Information. When users access the GC Services, we may collect certain non-personally identifiable information about those visits. For example, in order to permit your connection to the GC Services, our servers receive and record information about your computer and browser, including potentially your IP address, browser type, and other software or hardware information. If you access the GC Services from a mobile or other device, we may collect a unique device identifier assigned to that device or other transactional information for that device in order to serve content to it. We also may use cookies and other tracking technologies (including browser cookies, pixels, beacons, and Adobe Flash technology including cookies), which are comprised of small bits of data that often include an anonymous unique identifier. Websites send this data to your browser when you first request a web page and then store the data on your computer so the website can access information when you make subsequent requests for pages from that site. We may use these technologies to collect and store information about your usage of the GC Services, including your actions while using the GC Services, such as pages you have visited, search queries you have run, advertisements you have seen, as well as other anonymous, non-personally identifiable information. GC may also use cookies and similar tools to relate your use of the GC Sites to personal information obtained from you or a third party. For example, if you’ve asked us to provide you information about our upcoming products or promotions, cookie and/or click stream data about your activities on the GC Sites may allow us to limit the materials we provide you to items we think you will find interesting, based on your prior online activities and preferences. However, we will not coordinate your personal information and cookie or click stream information in this manner without first obtaining your express affirmative consent.

Third parties that support the GC Services by serving advertisements or providing services, such as allowing users to share content or tracking aggregate site usage statistics, may also use these technologies to collect similar information. GC does not control these third-party technologies and their use is governed by the privacy policies of third parties using such technologies.

Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies, but you can change your settings to notify you when a cookie is being set or updated, or to block cookies altogether.

Third Parties. To improve the quality of the GC Services, we may supplement the information we collect with information from third parties. If you access the GC Services through a third-party connection or log-in, we may also collect your user ID and/or user name associated with that third-party service, or any information you have made public in connection with that service or which the third party shares with partner services.

3. NOTICE & CHOICE

Means of Notice. This Privacy Policy is the primary means by which GC provides you with notice about its collection and use of your personal information. GC will not use your personal information in a manner different from what is described in this Privacy Policy without your permission.

Privacy Policy Changes. GC may modify this Privacy Policy as necessary. If we make material changes to this Privacy Policy that expand our rights to use your personal information, we will notify you to seek your consent through email or a prominent posting on the site.

Location of Data. The GC Services are hosted in the United States. If you are a user located outside the United States, you understand and consent to having any personal information you provide transferred to and processed in the United States.

Linked Websites or Services. The GC Services may also be linked to sites or services operated by GC affiliates or third parties, and may carry advertisements or offer content, functionality, games, newsletters, contests or sweepstakes, or applications developed and maintained by third parties. GC is not responsible for the privacy practices of any such third parties, and once you leave the GC Services via a link, enable a third-party service, or click an advertisement, you should check the applicable privacy policy of the third-party site. Additionally, although all Affiliated Companies adhere to the News Corporation corporate Privacy Principles, users who visit an Affiliated Company site should still refer to its separate privacy policy, which may differ in some respects from this Privacy Policy.
