In general, except as provided in this policy, we will not disclose your personally identifiable information to unaffiliated third parties without your express consent or allowing you to decline to permit the disclosure. There are, however, some limited circumstances in which we may need to disclose personally identifiable information about a user without express consent, including, but not limited to, the circumstances set forth below:
We may employ other companies to perform functions on our behalf, such as fulfilling orders, providing customer service, sending print and electronic mail, processing credit card payments, or other functions necessary to our business. In order to allow these companies to perform their obligations, we may need to share your personally identifiable information with them. However, we will provide these companies with only that information necessary to perform their functions on our behalf, and we will not allow them to use your personally identifiable information for any other purpose.
We may reveal your personally identifiable information to attorneys, private investigator organizations or law enforcement agencies if we believe that you have harmed or interfered with (or will imminently harm or interfere) other GENESIS users or anyone else violating (either intentionally or unintentionally) our Website Terms and Conditions of Use or infringing any of GENESIS’s legal rights, or harming the legal rights, property, or health or safety of any other person.
GENESIS will reveal your personally identifiable information, to the extent we reasonably believe we are required to do so by law. If we receive legal process calling for the disclosure of any of your personally identifiable information we will attempt to notify you via the email address you supplied during registration within a reasonable amount of time before we respond to the request, unless such notification is not permitted.
To ensure that you have appropriate control over your personally identifiable information, you can contact GENESIS sales or billing department who will access your account to update and/or correct the information you have previously submitted.
In addition, we provide you with the ability to decline -- or “opt-out of” -- certain mailings and other materials we may offer.
GENESIS sends emails and/or postal mailings to new subscribers and to provide to existing subscribers information regarding their specific GENESIS products. Periodically, GENESIS will send news and information to subscribers and other parties who have expressed interest in GENESIS and its products. You can opt out of receiving these promotional communications. For so long as you use GENESIS products and services or otherwise maintain a business relationship with GENESIS, you may not opt out of receiving communications from GENESIS relating specifically to those products and services or business relationship.
GENESIS maintains controls to protect the financial information you provide us, including credit card details, during the product purchase process. These controls include: (1) the use of SSL encryption to safeguard information when transmitted from your web browser to GENESIS; (2) authentication security within the databases that store customers’ credit card numbers; and (3) use of encryption of credit card numbers.
GENESIS employees are required to acknowledge that they understand and will strictly abide by our corporate policies with respect to the confidentiality of personally identifiable information. Moreover, GENESIS only gives access to databases containing personally identifiable information to employees on a need-to-know basis. Our security procedures are reviewed on a periodic basis to ensure that they remain current.
Accordingly, we have put in place security systems designed to prevent unauthorized disclosure of information you provide to us. These systems are structured to deter and prevent hackers and others from accessing this information. Due to the nature of Internet communications and evolving technologies, however, we cannot provide, and disclaim, assurance that the information you provide us will remain free from loss, misuse, or alteration by third parties who, despite our efforts, obtain unauthorized access.
