3. INFORMATION THAT DOES NOT IDENTIFY YOU
gShift Labs collects certain technical information from your computer’s Web browser or Internet device when you visit www.gshiftlabs.com on the Internet. This information includes the amount of time spent on the site by a visitor with a unique Internet identifier, the pages visited and returned to, the operating system, and Web browser used, the referring Website and any keywords used to find our site on a search Website. These server logs do not contain any personal information and can only be accessed by gShift Labs. Server log files are used solely to track visits to our Website and improve the experience, content and layout of our site. gShift Labs makes no attempt to link this traffic information to the individuals visiting our Website.
gShift Labs has also implemented Remarketing with Google Analytics for Display Advertising online. gShift Labs and third-party vendors, including Google, use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookie) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) together to inform, optimize, and serve ads based on someone’s past visits to www.gshiftlabs.com. As a result, gShift’s ads are shown on websites across the Internet. Visitors can opt-out of Google Analytics for Display Advertising and customize Google Display Network ads using the Ads Preferences Manager.
Anyone can browse gShift Labs’ Website with cookies turned off, but if you’re a gShift Labs agency partner or client and you wish to log in to your gShift Labs account, you must accept cookies. A cookie/session variable is assigned to you when you log in, and placed on your computer for programming purposes only. This is a session cookie that uniquely identifies you as you move from page to page inside the Extranet area. It ensures that you have properly logged in and that your organization’s personal information is only accessible to you. The cookie is destroyed as soon as you close your browser and is never redirected to any other servers.
4. DISCLOSURE AND RETENTION OF YOUR INFORMATION
We do not sell, trade or share any of your personal information with any other third-party organizations. We will release personal information when we believe such release is appropriate in order to comply with the law; for example, if we receive a subpoena or court order.
