In general, you can visit this Website without telling GTS who you are or revealing any personally-identifying information (Personal Information) about yourself. For portions of this Website, GTS may need to collect Personal Information from you for a specific purpose, such as to provide you with certain information that you request about GTS or GTS’s products, ordering e-mail newsletters, and/or signing up for training or an event. Personal Information collected by GTS often is limited to an e-mail address, country or location, but may include other information (such as IP address, browser type, operating system, domain name, access times and referring website addresses, etc.) when needed to provide a service you requested. This information is used for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of this website.
In addition to personally-identifiable information, GTS automatically gathers general statistical information about this Website and its visitors, such as Internet protocol addresses, browsers, pages viewed, number of visitors, goods and services purchased, etc., but in doing so GTS does not reference you by individual name, e-mail address, home address, or telephone number. GTS uses such information, in the aggregate, to determine how often and for how long visitors use parts of this Website and to research visiting patterns.
We may use your personal information for the following purposes:
- To ensure our site is relevant to your needs.
- To deliver services, such as newsletters, events, training or software that you request or purchase.
- To help us create and publish content most relevant to you.
- To alert you to product upgrades, special offers, updated information and other new services from GTS, if you so request.
- To allow you access to limited-entry areas of our site as appropriate.
We may merge site-visitation data with anonymous demographic information for research purposes, and we may use this information in aggregate to provide more relevant content. In some limited-entry sections of this website, with your approval, we may combine site-visitation data with your personal information in order to provide you with personalized content.
We occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, including mailing and delivering purchases and sending postal mail. We will only provide those companies the information they need to deliver the service, and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
Your information may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which GTS or agents maintain facilities, and by using this site, you consent to any such transfer of information outside of your country. GT Software abides by the safe harbor framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of data from the European Union.

GTS may send out periodic e-mails informing you of upgrades related to a product you requested, or confirming you requested a product or service. You will not be able to choose to unsubscribe to these mailings, as they are considered an essential part of the service you have chosen.
