WHAT INFORMATION IS COLLECTED
When you visit a website, you disclose certain information, such as your Internet Protocol (IP) address and the time of your visit. Our website, like many other sites, records this basic information about visits to our website. Cookies are pieces of information that are transferred to your computer from a web server. Most browsers are set up to accept cookies, but you can change your settings to have your browser notify you when you receive a new cookie or to refuse to accept cookies.
We collect any information you enter through our Services or that you give us in any other way. This includes information submitted through our online inquiry forms. For screening purposes, we collect information submitted voluntarily by you (usually as requested by a GRMS client) on certain password protected web pages and services. We also collect information online and offline from insurance companies, rating agencies, business databases and public records including, but not limited to, business filings, license registrations, Uniform Commercial Code filings and court records or any other information lawfully requested by our client.
HOW WE USE AND SHARE YOUR INFORMATION
We use the information we collect on the public portion of our website for responding to inquiries and administering our business activities. We may use the information we collect in an aggregated fashion to develop and tailor the services we offer. Occasionally we may use the information to notify you about changes to our Services, special offers or for other marketing purposes. GRMS’ website and password protected web pages are not set up to track, collect or distribute personal information not entered by visitors. However, certain limited automatic and cookie information is collected. This information is used for internal purposes by technical support staff for research and development, user and traffic analysis and business decision making.
On our website we provide a mechanism to refer our Services to a colleague, which requests your and your colleague’s email addresses. This information will be used solely for the purpose of contacting you or your colleague and tracking the success of our marketing efforts.
As part of our Services, GRMS uses the information that we collect to offer our clients customized screening services, both within the United States and internationally. If you enter your information as part of a screening process, GRMS will use that information to perform a background screen or investigation on you on behalf of a GRMS client.
HOW WE PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION
The privacy and protection of your information is important to us. GRMS uses industry standard encryption technologies when transferring and receiving personal information. In addition, our business practices are reviewed periodically for compliance with policies and procedures governing the security and confidentiality of our information.
Your access to some services and content is password protected. We advise that you do not disclose your password to anyone. In addition, we recommend you sign out of password protected services at the end of your session.
WHO HAS ACCESS TO THE INFORMATION
GRMS works with other businesses to perform business services for GRMS. These businesses are provided with information about our users only to the extent required to perform their services and are prohibited from using the information for other purposes. These services may include, but are not limited to, analyzing data, technical advice, providing marketing assistance, support for the Services, data suppliers, providing screening services, processing credit card payments and providing customer service.
In conducting a background investigation, GRMS may need to disclose your information to third parties such as courts, county recorders, offices of the Secretary of State, law enforcement agencies and other people or companies who may provide or verify information about you. Third parties are provided with information about our users only to the extent required to perform their functions.
If a GRMS client requests a risk assessment of you, GRMS will disclose information about you to that client (but not to other clients of GRMS) on password protected web pages or services. You will be able to view your own risk assessment results with your username and password access to the GRMS database but not the results of anyone else.
We may also disclose your information to third parties as reasonably required to protect or exercise GRMS’ legal rights, to protect the rights and safety of any person (such as to legal representatives and law enforcement), as you expressly permit and as required by law (such as the result of a court subpoena).
We may transfer your information in the event of the sale of substantially all of the assets of our business to a third-party or in the event of a merger, consolidation or acquisition. However, in such event, any acquirer will be subject to the provisions of our commitments to you or we will not disclose your information.
LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES
Our website may contain links to other websites. GRMS is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of those other websites.
NO LIABILITY FOR ACTS OF THIRD PARTIES
GRMS will exercise all reasonable efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of user information. However, transmissions protected by industry standard security technology and implemented by human beings cannot be made absolutely secure. Consequently, GRMS shall not be liable for unauthorized disclosure of confidential information due to no fault of GRMS including, but not limited to, errors in transmission and unauthorized acts of third parties.
GRMS does not provide services or sell products to children under the age of 18. We do not knowingly collect or maintain any personal information or non-personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 18. We will remove or delete any personal information we believe was submitted by any child under the age of 18.
