This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. This information is used by Grant Express for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the Grant Express site.

Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through Grant Express public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others. Note: Grant Express does not read any of your private online communications.

Grant Express encourages you to review the privacy statements of Web sites you choose to link to from Grant Express so that you can understand how those Web sites collect, use and share your information. Grant Express is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on Web sites outside of the Grant Express and Grant Express family of Web sites.

Grant Express may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.

Grant Express does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. Grant Express may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, Grant Express may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to Grant Express, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.

Grant Express does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.

Grant Express keeps track of the Web sites and pages our customers visit within Grant Express, in order to determine what Grant Express services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within Grant Express to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.

Grant Express Web sites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Grant Express or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Grant Express; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Grant Express, or the public.

Use of Cookies

The Grant Express Web site use "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Grant Express pages, or register with Grant Express site or services, a cookie helps Grant Express to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Grant Express Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Grant Express features that you customized.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Grant Express services or Web sites you visit.

Security of your Personal Information

Grant Express secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Grant Express secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

Changes to this Statement

Grant Express will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. Grant Express encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how Grant Express is protecting your information.
