Growth-Maps collects individual user search activity for statistical, archival, and business purposes. Growth-Maps collects financial information (such as billing address, credit card number, expiration date) for billing payment and credit card authorization purposes. Growth-Maps may track the IP address of a user’s computer or place a “cookie” in the browser files of a user’s computer. This is required by Growth-Maps services to provide automated features.
Use of Information Collected:
Collected information helps Growth-Maps better understand it’s user needs in order to improve its product and service offerings. Email addresses are used to communicate with users through promotional emails, partner emails and for site administration purposes. Users may be deleted from promotional email and partner email lists at their request. Personal information may be used to contact users for the purpose of research, product development, marketing, or customer service, if the user has opted to receive such communication. User search activity is collected and analyzed and may be utilized by Growth-Maps in the aggregate or in the abstract for a variety of business purposes. Financial information is used to bill users for products and services purchased. Within Growth-Maps , only accounting managers have access to the credit card account information. This information is not shared with anyone outside of Growth-Maps. IP address and cookie log data is analyzed to better understand traffic flows and user preferences.
Though Growth-Maps makes every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law wherein we have good faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on our Web site. Growth-Maps shares user information with its partners for the purpose of providing related services in which we deem our users have interest. The use that Growth-Maps partners make of customer information will not exceed Growth-Maps use of the data. Key billing information (such as credit card number, expiration date and dollar amount) gathered from users making online purchases of products or services is shares with Chase Bank, out credit card processing partner, in order to authorize charges to the credit card. Growth-Maps also uses third party providers to perform email and postal mailings on behalf of Growth-Maps, but this information (such as name, address and email) is confidential and is not used by the provider for any other purpose. Growth-Maps does not sell, rent or lease user information to any third party, except as disclosed here. From time to time, Growth-Maps may obtain information (such as electronic mail addresses) from third party providers. It is our goal to only contact individuals who we believe may have a legitimate business interest in Growth-Maps based on their membership or participation in other organizations or web sites, and who have indicated a willingness to be contacted for this purpose. While Growth-Maps endeavors to work with other sites and companies with a similar respect for user privacy, Growth-Maps cannot be responsible for the privacy practices of other sites. Please be aware that in the event Growth-Maps merges with a third party, or in the event all or substantially all of Growth-Maps assets are acquired by a third party, customer information, including personally identifiable information, will be shared and/or transferred to such third party. The information may only be used or shared by such third parties for the primary purpose for which the information was originally collected. If such third parties, or if Growth-Maps for its own business needs, desire to use the personally identifiable information for another purpose, you will be notified prior to the information being used for a new purpose, and you will have the opportunity to opt out of such new use of your personally identifiable information.
