Collecting Personal Details
Customers do not need to provide personal data when simply browsing this website. Such details are typically required for ordering products and/or registration in GVS surveys and contests. An option is always given to the customer to oppose the use of personal details for direct marketing. If you have not entered our competition or opted in to this, your details will not be used for any purpose other than in connection with your transaction.
Our website’s order forms, surveys and contests require you to give GVS contact information (like your name and email address) and demographic information (like your, age, or income level). Our order forms require financial information (like your account or credit card numbers) as well. Your financial details are not stored on our database. GVS does however store your demographic details, but only for internal marketing purposes. GVS will not share your personal details with third parties without your explicit consent unless compelled by law or regulatory requirements to provide such information.
Financial information that is collected is used to check your qualifications and bill you for products. GVS will not share financial information with third parties without your prior consent. When you make a purchase on the website, your consent is given to provide your financial or contact information to those third parties necessary to process your transactions with us, such as credit card companies.
GVS uses demographic information to tailor its website to the interests of its users. This information may be shared with advertisers only on an aggregate basis so that they can tailor their advertisements to the appropriate audience. GVS does not pass on details of any individuals.
You are entitled at any time to request a copy of the information held by GVS in its records. You also have the right to require GVS to correct any inaccuracies in your details.
