Security and Fraud Prevention
Disclosure of Information to Others
We share your personal data when you have granted us permission to do so, when necessary to fulfill our obligations to you, or when we have a legitimate business need to do so.
We may share your information with third parties who help us in the delivery of our products and services to you. We disclose information to companies and individuals we employ to perform functions on our behalf, including contractors located both within the United States and outside of the United States. Examples include hosting our web servers and analyzing data. They may not share that information with any other third party or use that data for any other purpose. We will remain responsible for any information shared in this way.
Website and Analytics Companies
We may share anonymous, aggregate information regarding visitors to our website with third-party website analytics companies. These companies use this aggregate data, which has been stripped of any personally identifying information about you, to provide us with insight regarding our web usage patterns. As we only share anonymous, aggregate data, this information cannot be traced back to you individually by either us or the website analytics vendors.

You may choose not to share your data with Google by installing the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on, which instructs your browser not to provide your website usage data to Google Analytics. To opt-out of Google Analytics, visit https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout to install the browser add-on. Please note that installing the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on will only disable the use of Google Analytics and will not prevent data from being sent to the website itself or to other web analytics services.

Because GIS WebTech is a U.S. company and information collected on our website or through our licensed technology products is stored in whole or in part in the United States, your information may become subject to U.S. law.

We may disclose and transfer such information to a third party who acquires any or all of GIS WebTech’s business, whether such acquisition is by way of merger, consolidation or purchase of all or a substantial portion of our assets or equity interests.
