This Privacy Policy applies to all of the Gibson Brands, Inc. divisions and subsidiaries and related websites. Personal Data may be shared without further notice between all Gibson Brands, Inc. divisions and subsidiaries.

It’s important to know that this privacy policy does not apply to your activities on the websites of social networks or other providers that you can reach via links on our websites. Don’t forget to check the websites of these providers for their data protection regulations.

We use your data to provide and improve our services. But we also use your data to market directly to you. We collect several different types of data.

However, it is possible that certain functions of our websites depend on the availability of Personal Data. If you do not make available Personal Data in these cases, this may result in functions not being available or only being available to a limited extent. For example, if you’d like to allow us to contact you with newsletters, marketing or promotional materials and other information that may be of interest to you, you will need to provide your Personal Data and provide us with your consent to process it.

Cookies are files with small amount of data which sometimes include an anonymous unique identifier. Cookies are sent to your browser from a website and stored on your device. Tracking technologies include things such as beacons, tags, and scripts that collect and track information. Sometimes cookies and tracking data is also Personal Data.

We use cookies and similar software tools such as HTML5 Storage or Local Shared Objects to identify your interests and particularly popular areas of our websites and use this information to improve the design of our websites and make them even more user-friendly. For the same purposes we use the analysis tools Adobe Analytics and Google Analytics; cookies may also be used here.

Personal Data that is no longer needed after the expiration of legal or business process-related periods will be deleted. There may be an indication of interests that merit protection or historical significance of this data in individual cases. If so, the data must remain on file until the interests that merit protection have been clarified legally, or the corporate archive has evaluated the data to determine whether it must be retained for historical purposes.

 

Transfer of Data

 

We may transfer your information, including Personal Data, outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction. In some of these areas, the data protection laws may differ than those from your jurisdiction and you may not have the same protections. Your data may be maintained in these jurisdictions.
