Who we are.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it.
We collect your personal information because it assists us in delivering a high level of customer service. For example, your personal information helps us to keep you informed and up-to-date on the latest product updates and announcements as well as special offers that may be extended from time to time.
When you provide GPoint with your name, email address, mailing address or telephone number, and you do not “opt-out”, GPoint and GPoint representatives and authorized affiliates may use the provided information to alert you to product updates, special offers, updated information, new products and other GPoint information. Other than GPoint representatives and authorized affiliates (such as value-added resellers), GPoint does not offer, sell, or otherwise make available any user-provided information to third parties.
GPoint will send notifications regarding product updates and technical support notices. These messages are deemed essential to the functionality of your product and as such, there is no “opt-out” available for update notifications.
If you do not want GPoint or GPoint representatives to contact you, you may “opt-out” at any time. You may “opt-out” by contacting GPoint’s Customer Service Department or by following the instructions included in the email correspondence.
GPoint’s website utilizes visitor log files or cookies as well as hosted tracking with our website. The information collected with visitor cookies and through the hosted tracking is used to gain a better understanding of which sections of our site are most important to our users as well as identify possible navigation issues. This allows us to enhance your user experience in the future. The data collected from these visitor cookies and hosted tracking does not collect any personally identifiable information and is used in aggregate form only.
Where personal information is required, the GPoint website uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption to transmit this data. This is done to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of the information you have offered. While GPoint strives to protect the personal information you submit to us, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure. As such, GPoint cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our products and you do so at your own risk. Once your information has been received by GPoint, we will make our best effort to ensure the safety and security on our systems.
At times, GPoint may hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf. Such limited services include, but are not limited to, order fulfillment, direct mail services and answering customer questions about products and services. These companies will only be provided the information they need to perform the service, and they are strictly prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
GPoint may occasionally present a special contest or promotion sponsored by another company. You may be asked to provide personal information in order to quality for this contest or promotion. If your personal information will be shared with the sponsor(s), you will be notified prior to your submission of personal information. Finally, while we will make every effort to preserve the privacy of our users, at times we may be required by law to disclose personal information.

Who we share your data with
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
