All documents and information on the Global Drivers website are protected by copyright. Except as specifically permitted herein, no portion of the documents or information on this website may be reproduced in any form or by any means without the express written consent of Global Drivers.

Global Drivers Corporation (“Global Drivers”) respects the privacy of our users. This Website Privacy Policy (“Policy”) describes our privacy practices concerning information collected in connection with the Global Drivers website, which is located at www.globaldrivers.com (the “Site”), and other related applications that Global Drivers makes available on the Site and that are embedded in third-party applications and services.

This Policy is intended to explain the conditions under which Global Drivers collects, uses, and discloses personal and other information in connection with the Site, and your rights in relation to that information.

The personal and other information that we collect about you is controlled by Global Drivers Corporation, which is headquartered in the United States at 100 California street, Suite 2710, San Francisco, CA 94111.  As discussed below, Global Drivers complies with the US-Swiss Safe Harbor Framework regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information from Switzerland.

Personal and other information
Global Drivers collects both “personal information” and “pseudonymized information” about Site users.  For purposes of this Policy, “pseudonymized information” is information that Global Drivers cannot directly associate with a specific person without the aid of additional information. By contrast, “personal information,” is information such as a name or email address that Global Drivers can directly associate with a specific person or entity without additional information.

Personal information. 
You can visit the Site without submitting any personal information. However, if you use certain features on the Site, such as the “Log In” feature, you will be required to provide personal information. Such information could include, for example, your name, email address, telephone number, postal address, company, job title, and/or industry. Our online contact form also contains a “comments” field through which you may submit additional personal information.

We may combine personal information collected through the Site with other information that we or third parties collect about you in other contexts—such as our communications with you via email or phone, or your customer service records. We will treat such combined information as personal information and protect it in accordance with this Policy.

Web log data. 
When you use the Site, we automatically receive and record certain information from your computer (or other device) and your browser. This may include such data as your IP address and domain name, the pages you visit on the Site, the date and time of your visit, the files that you download, the URLs from the websites you visit before and after navigating to the Site, your software and hardware attributes (including device IDs), your general geographic location (e.g., your city, state, or metropolitan region), and certain cookie information (see below). To obtain such information, we may use web logs or applications that recognize your computer and gather information about its online activity.

Web beacons. 
The Site or the emails that you receive from Global Drivers may use an application known as a “web beacon” (also known as a “clear gif” or “web bug”).  A web beacon is an electronic file that usually consists of a single-pixel image.  It can be embedded in a web page or in an email to transmit information, which could include personal information. For example, it allows an email sender to determine whether a user has opened a particular email.

Third-party online tracking and advertising. 
We also may partner with certain third parties to collect, analyze, and use some of the personal and pseudonymized information described in this section. For example, we may allow third parties to set cookies or use web beacons on the Site or in email communications from Global Drivers. This information may be used for a variety of purposes, including online behavioral advertising, as discussed below (see the section entitled “How we share personal and pseudonymized information with third parties”). 

Global Drivers uses the information that we collect for a variety of purposes. If we have personal information about you, we may use it, for example: to respond to your questions or requests concerning the Site or other services offered by Global Drivers or our partners; to fulfill the terms of any agreement you have with us; to fulfill your requests for our services or otherwise complete a transaction that you initiate; to send you information about our services and other topics that are likely to be of interest to you, including newsletters, updates, or other communications; to deliver confirmations, account information, notifications, and similar operational communications; to improve your user experience and the quality of our products and services; and to comply with legal and/or regulatory requirements.

We use the pseudonymized information that we collect for such purposes as: counting and recognizing visitors to the Site; analyzing how visitors use the Site and various Site features; improving the Site and enhancing users’ experiences with the Site; creating new products and services or improving our existing products and services; and enabling additional website analytics and research concerning the Site.  Global Drivers may link pseudonymized information gathered using cookies and web beacons with personal information. But in that event, we will treat the combined information as personal information.

If you opt in to receive marketing emails from us, we also may use the personal and pseudonymized information that we collect to send you promotional communications, including emails or postal mail about the products and services offered by Global Drivers or our partners.  Although we hope you will find our promotional emails of interest, you may opt out of receiving them by sending an email to privacy@globaldrivers.com with “optout” in the subject line.  Promotional emails will also have instructions for opting out of that type of communication in the future.

We share your personal information and pseudonymized information with other parties for a variety of purposes, as described below.

Analytics and online behavioral advertising. 
We partner with certain third parties to collect the pseudonymized information discussed above and to engage in analysis, auditing, research, and reporting. These third parties may use web logs or web beacons, and they may set and access cookies on your computer or other device. In particular, the Site uses Google Analytics to help collect and analyze certain information for the purposes discussed above. You may opt out of the use of cookies by Google Analytics here.

The Site also enables third-party tracking mechanisms to collect your pseudonymized information for use in online behavioral advertising. For example, third parties may use the fact that you visited the Site to target online ads for Global Drivers services to you on non-Global Drivers websites.  In addition, our third-party advertising networks might use information about your use of the Site to help target non-Global Drivers advertisements based on your online behavior in general. For information about behavioral advertising practices, including privacy and confidentiality, visit the Network Advertising Initiative website or the Digital Advertising Alliance website.

The use of online tracking mechanisms by third parties is subject to those third parties’ own privacy policies, and not this Policy. If you prefer to prevent third parties from setting and accessing cookies on your computer, you may set your browser to block cookies. Additionally, you may remove yourself from the targeted advertising of companies within the Network Advertising Initiative by opting out here, or of companies participating in the Digital Advertising Alliance program by opting out here.  Although our website currently does not respond to “do not track” browser headers, you can limit tracking through these third-party programs and by taking the other steps discussed above.

Third-party service
Global Drivers also uses other third-party service providers to help us manage and improve the Site and other Global Drivers services. These service providers may collect and/or use your personal or pseudonymized information to assist us in achieving the purposes discussed above in the section entitled “How we use the personal and pseudonymized information that we collect.”  For example, we use third parties to help us target and implement our email communications and direct mailings. We also use third-party platforms to help us manage our relationships with the people and companies that use our services.

We also may share your personal or pseudonymized information with other third parties when necessary to fulfill your requests for services; to complete a transaction that you initiate; or to meet the terms of any agreement that you have with us or our partners. The Global Drivers websites may contain links to third-party sites. Access to any website linked to any Global Drivers website is not the responsibility of Global Drivers and Global Drivers is not responsible for the accuracy, or reliability of any content on such websites. Further, the presence of a link to a third-party site does not mean that Global Drivers endorses that site, its products, or views expressed there. Global Drivers provides these links merely for convenience and the presence of such third-party links are not an endorsement or recommendation by Global Drivers.

LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

IN NO EVENT WILL GLOBAL DRIVERS BE LIABLE TO ANY PARTY FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, EXEMPLARY, SPECIAL OR OTHER CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES FOR ANY USE OF THIS WEBSITE, OR ON ANY OTHER HYPERLINKED WEBSITE, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY LOST PROFITS, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, LOSS OF PROGRAMS OR OTHER DATA ON YOUR INFORMATION HANDLING SYSTEM OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF GLOBAL DRIVERS IS EXPRESSLY ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

 

Your direct sharing of personal information through third-party websites and services.
The Site may enable you to share directly personal information with websites or online services operated by third parties. For example, the Site contains links to third-party websites that incorporate comment and social media features. The Site also contains a Facebook “like” button and a Twitter “follow” button. If you choose to use these features, you may disclose your personal information not just to those third-party websites and services, but also to their users and the public more generally. Because these third-party websites and services are not operated by Global Drivers, Global Drivers is not responsible for the content or practices of those websites or services. The collection, use, and disclosure of your personal and pseudonymized information will be subject to the privacy policies of the third party websites or services, and not this Policy.

Third-party plugins.
The Site integrates certain third-party plug-ins (such as a Facebook “like” button). Even if you do not click on these plug-ins, they may collect information about you, such as your IP address and the pages that you view. They also may set and/or access a cookie. These plugins are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing them.

Legal purposes.
 We also may use or share your personal or pseudonymized information with third parties when we have reason to believe that doing so is necessary:

Aggregated information. 
From time to time, Global Drivers may also share anonymized and aggregated information about Site users, such as by publishing a report on trends in the usage of the Site.

Security
Global Drivers uses commercially reasonable physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect your personal and pseudonymized information against loss or unauthorized access, use, modification, or deletion. However, no security program is foolproof, and thus we cannot guarantee the absolute security of your personal or other information.

Reviewing and updating your information
If you want to learn more about the personal information that Global Drivers has about you, or you would like to update or change that information, please contact us by email at privacy@globaldrivers.com

Information for Site users from outside the United States

Global Drivers also may subcontract the processing of your data to affiliates or third parties in the United States or countries other than your country of residence. The data- protection laws in these countries may be different from, and less stringent than, those in your country of residence.

Governing Law and Jurisdiction

Enforcement of any dispute relating to these Terms will be governed by the laws of the State of California, excluding its conflict and choice of law principles. For parties residing in the United States, the exclusive jurisdiction and venue for any claims arising out of or related to these Terms or your use of the Services or Service Content will lie in the state and federal courts located in City and County of San Francisco, California, and you irrevocably agree to submit to the jurisdiction of such courts.

For parties residing outside the United States, any dispute arising hereunder shall be submitted to confidential binding arbitration in the County and City of San Francisco, California for the maximum judgment enforceable, except that to the extent Customer has in any manner violated or threatened to violate Global Drivers intellectual property rights, Global Drivers may seek injunctive or other appropriate relief in any state or federal court in the State of California. Customer hereby consents to, and waive all defenses of lack of personal jurisdiction and forum non convenes with respect to venue and jurisdiction in the state and federal courts of California. Arbitration under this Agreement shall be conducted pursuant to the existing International Arbitration Rules at the American Arbitration Association. The arbitrator’s award shall be final and binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. The parties each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim is initiated in court rather than in arbitration we each waive any right to a jury trial.

Our failure to enforce any right or provision in these Terms will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision unless acknowledged and agreed to by us in writing. In the event that a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms to be illegal, invalid, or unenforceable, the remaining provisions will remain in full force and effect.

The terms and conditions which by their nature are intended to survive termination of these Terms shall survive, including Restrictions, Disclaimer of Warranties, Feedback, Indemnity, and Limitation of Liability.

We recommend that persons over 13 but under 18 years of age ask their parents for permission before using the Site or sending any information about themselves to anyone over the Internet.

Changes to this Policy
Technology and the Internet are rapidly changing.

Global Drivers will post all such changes on the Site, so you should review this page periodically. If we make a material change to the Policy, you will be provided with appropriate notice. If we maintain your email address, we also may email you a copy of the revised Policy at your most recently provided email address. It is therefore important that you update your email address if it changes.
