Terms and Privacy: Introduction
We may collect the e-mail addresses at the point of subscription, of users who wish to receive e-mail notification of publications and press releases in identified subject areas of interest, and of those who send us e-mail messages or express interest regarding our services or employment opportunities, or register for conferences and other Galt-sponsored events. We will not, however, share any e-mail addresses with any third party or send unsolicited e-mail to any of the addresses we collect, except in very limited circumstances as set forth in this policy.
International Transfer of Information
Because Galt is a global organization, information collected on this Site or through other means may be transferred from time to time among the Galt offices or personnel, or to third parties located throughout the world, including offices located outside the European Economic Area, and this Site may be viewed and hosted anywhere in the world, including countries that may not have laws regulating the use and transfer of personally-identifiable data. By using the Site, submitting information through the Site, or submitting information to Galt through other means, you voluntarily consent to such international transfer and hosting of such information.
Galt has in place technological and operational security processes designed to protect personally identifiable information from loss, misuse, alteration or destruction. Only authorized employees and contractors will have access to any data provided by you, and that access is limited by need. Each employee or contractor having access to any personally-identifiable information is obligated to maintain its confidentiality. Although we take steps that are generally accepted as industry standard to protect your personally-identifiable information, Galt cannot guarantee that your personally-identifiable information will not become accessible to unauthorized persons.
