Personal information such as your name, e-mail address, telephone number, mailing address, zip code, birth date, gender, user ID and password, or other information may be collected via the Site.
Cookies
As with many Web sites, the Site uses standard technology called "cookies," which are small data files that are transferred to your computer when you allow your browser to accept cookies. Cookies automatically identify your Web browser to the Site whenever you visit the Site, and make using the Site easier for you by saving your passwords, purchases, and preferences. By tracking how and when you use the Site, cookies help us determine which areas are popular and which are not. Many improvements and updates to the Site are based on data obtained from cookies. Accepting cookies allows you, among other things, to personalize your experience on the Site. Cookies may also allow the Site to present to you advertising which may be of interest to you. If you do not want information collected through the use of cookies, you generally can opt out of providing this information by turning the cookies off in your browser; however, some areas of the Site may not provide you with a personalized experience if you have disabled the use of cookies.

We may receive information about you from other sources and add it to your personal information.

HOW INFORMATION MAY BE COLLECTED & HOW THAT INFORMATION IS USED
We may collect information from you in several different areas on the site, including, but not limited to:
Calendars
We may offer free calendars on the site to share special information about us and our events. You may cancel your free e-mail subscription by following the instructions provided on the site, or even in a designated area of the calendar.
Transaction Information
If you order any of the services offered on our Site, we will ask you to complete an order form that will request certain information from you, including financial information such as a credit card number and expiration date and general contact, billing and shipping information. We will use this information to complete the transaction that you have requested and to invoice you. Such information is collected and stored through encrypted means for your protection.
How Your Information Is Used
Whenever your personal data is collected on our site, you will be presented with an opportunity to "opt-in" or "opt-out" of GFLCC's registered user database. GFLCC will periodically send information to users who have acknowledged their willingness to receive it via e-mail or the US Postal service. This information may include but is not limited to announcements and service offerings from GFLCC and their partners.

This Site incorporates reasonable safeguards to protect the security, integrity, completeness, accuracy and privacy of the personal information that we may collect and we have put into place reasonable precautions to protect such information from loss, misuse and alteration. Your personally identifiable information is transferred to our computers utilizing encryption software. Only those employees who need access to your information in order to do their jobs are allowed access. Our security policies are reviewed periodically and revised as required.
LINKS TO OTHER SITES
You should be aware that when you are on the Site you could be directed to other sites beyond our control. For example, if you "click" on a link, the "click" may take you off the Site onto a different Web site. This includes links from partners that may use the Site's logo as part of a co-branding agreement. These other Web sites may send their own cookies to you, independently collect data or solicit personal information and may or may not have their own published privacy policies. If you visit a Website that is linked to our Site, you should consult that site's privacy policy before providing any personal information.

If at any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify you by way of an e-mail or some other means. Your continued use of the Site shall constitute your acceptance of such revised privacy policy.

CORRECTING/UPDATING PERSONAL INFORMATION
If your personally identifiable information changes (such as your zip code), or if you no longer desire to access our Site, we will attempt to provide a way to correct, update or remove the personal data you have provided to us. This can be done by making changes to your profile by using an opt-out message in an e-mail.
