Uses of Your Data

De-Identified Personal Information or non-Personal Information is aggregated for system administration and to monitor the usage of the Website. It is utilized to measure the number of visits to our Website, average time spent, number of pages viewed, and to monitor various other Website statistics. This monitoring helps us evaluate how visitors use and navigate our Website so we can improve the content.
We will never disclose, sell, or rent your identifiable Personal Information to third parties for commercial purposes.

We may disclose Personal Information to the following types of third parties, and for one or more the following purposes:
We will attempt to notify you about these requests unless: (i) providing notice is prohibited by the legal process itself, by court order we receive, or by applicable law, or (ii) we believe that providing notice would be futile, ineffective, create a risk of injury or bodily harm to an individual or group, or create or increase a risk of fraud upon us, our users, our visitors, our Website, or our Services. In instances where we comply with legal requests without notice for these reasons, we will attempt to notify that individual about the request after the fact if we determine in good faith that we are no longer legally prohibited from doing so and that no risk scenarios are described in this paragraph apply.
Griper is not responsible for the safety of any information that you share with third parties that we may link to or who advertise on our Website but are not affiliated with us or our Services.
You consent to our disclosure of your Personal Information and other information to a potential or actual buyer or other successors for the purpose of considering a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution, or sale or transfer of some or all of our assets, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation, or other proceedings, in which Personal Information held by us is among the assets transferred. You agree to and do hereby consent to (and shall not object to) our assignment, conveyance, transfer, and/or license (whether by contract, merger, or operation of law) of any or all of our rights to your Personal Information and your consents, in whole or in part, and other information, with or without notice to you and without your further consent.
We have our headquarters in the United States. The Personal Information we collect may be stored and processed in servers within or outside of the United States and wherever we and our service providers have facilities around the globe. As such, we and our service providers may transfer your Personal Information to, or access it in, jurisdictions that may not provide equivalent levels of data protection as your home jurisdiction. No matter where you are located, you consent to the processing and transferring of your information in and to the United States, Canada, and other countries. If you are a resident of a country other than the United States, you acknowledge and consent to our collecting, transmitting, and storing your Personal Information out of the country in which you reside.
We aim to protect your Personal Information through a system of organizational and technical security measures. Your Personal Information is contained behind secured networks and a firewall and is only accessible by a limited number of persons and service providers who have special access rights to such systems and are required to keep the information confidential.
The safety and security of your information is also dependent on you. You should maintain good internet security practices. Where you have password-protected access to certain parts of our Website or Services, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. You should not share your password with anyone. You must prevent unauthorized access to your account and Personal Information by selecting and protecting your password appropriately and limiting access to your computer or device and browser by signing off after you have finished accessing your account. If your email account or the like is compromised, this could allow access to your account with us. If your email account is compromised, it could be used to ask us to reset a password and gain access to your account with us. If you think that any of your accounts have been compromised you should change your account credentials with us, and in particular, make sure any compromised account does not allow access to your account with us. The information you share in public areas may be viewed by other users. We’ll never email you to ask for your password or other account login information. If you receive such an email, please send it to us so we can investigate.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we do use security measures designed to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee the security of your Personal Information transmitted to us or which we obtain. Any transmission of Personal Information is at your own risk as we cannot promise or guarantee that hackers, cybercriminals, or other unauthorized third parties will not be able to defeat our security and improperly collect, access, steal, or modify your information. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on our Website or used with our Services.
We will keep your Personal Information for as long as your account is active, or as long as you are a registered user of our Services, or for as long as we have another business purpose to do so and, thereafter, for no longer than is required or permitted by law, or our records retention policy, reasonably necessary for internal reporting and reconciliation purposes, or to provide you with feedback or information you might request. When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your Personal Information, we will either delete or anonymize such information, or, if this is not possible (for example, because your Personal Information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your Personal Information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible. This period of retention is subject to our review and alteration.
Following termination or deactivation of your account, we may retain your profile information and all information posted to public areas of the Website. In addition, we may delete all of your Personal Information and other data without notice to you.
Through your account settings, you may access and, in some cases, edit or delete certain information you’ve provided to us, such as name and password, email address, etc. The information that you can view, update, and delete may change as our Services or our practices change. If you have any questions about viewing or updating information we have on file about you, please contact us.
Online Privacy Protection Act (“CalOPPA”) – under California Civil Code Sections 1798.83-1798.84 (known as the “Shine the Light” law), California residents are entitled to ask us annually for a notice identifying the categories of Personal Information which we share with our affiliates and/or third parties for marketing purposes, and providing contact information for such affiliates and/or third parties with whom the business has shared such information during the immediately preceding calendar year. To make such a request, please contact us with “Request for California Privacy Information” on the subject line and in the body of your message. We will comply with your request within thirty (30) days or as otherwise required by the statute. Please be aware that not all information sharing is covered by the “Shine the Light” requirements and only information on covered sharing will be included in our response.
As required by CalOPPA, we agree to the following:
By providing us with your email address (including by “following,” “liking,” linking your account to our Services or other services, etc., on a third-party website or network), you consent to our using the email address to send you Services-related notices by email, including any notices required by law, in lieu of communication by postal mail. You also agree that we may send you notifications of activity on our Website and/or Services to the email address you give us, in accordance with any applicable privacy settings. We may use your email address to send you other messages or content, such as, but not limited to, newsletters, additions or changes to features of the Services, or special offers. If you do not want to receive such email messages, you may opt out by emailing us your opt-out request or by clicking “unsubscribe” at the bottom of our messages. Opting out may prevent you from receiving email messages regarding updates, improvements, special features, announcements, or offers. You may not opt-out of Services-related emails.
You can add, update, or delete the information as explained above. When you update information, however, we may maintain a copy of the unrevised information in our records. You may request deletion of your account by emailing us. It is your responsibility to maintain your current email address with us.
