This Notice applies to the Guttrball website located at http://www.guttrball.com and other related websites owned and operated by Guttrball that may link to this Notice (the "Guttrball Website" or "Website"). This policy also applies to information we collect, protect, share and use as part of other technology platforms, web pages, interactive features, special events, forms, social media, and mobile applications. The Website and this Notice are intended for U.S. residents only. By using the Website, or providing us with any information, you consent to the collection, processing, maintenance and transfer of such information in and to the United States and other applicable territories in which the privacy laws may not be as comprehensive as or equivalent to those in the country where you reside or are a citizen.
1. Information We May Collect From or About You
When you visit the Guttrball Website, we may collect passive information about your visit. Passive information is any form of aggregate data, navigational data, tracking data, click-stream data, or historical data, which does not on its own personally identify you. Passive Information includes information collected through cookies and web beacons (see 4 below [Cookies])
When you register a product, purchase products through our ecommerce programs via the Website, send us an email, subscribe to one of our newsletters, or submit other data through the Guttrball Website, we may obtain and collect personal information. Personal information is information collected that personally identifies you, such as by name, email address, mailing address, phone number. This personal information may be combined with Passive Information or additional information we receive from third parties, as well.
2. How We May Share or Use Your Personal Information
Personal information may be shared by Guttrball on an international basis with its parent entity, subsidiaries and affiliates, and such information may be further shared between internal product groups in order to enhance the Guttrball customer experience and offer additional products and/or services that may be of interest to you. We may also share your personal information with third parties either at your express direction, such as when you request that we have a Guttrball representative contact you or you authorize sharing of your personal information with a third party business partner. Guttrball is not responsible for the handling of such information by these third parties who are responsible for their own privacy policies that would govern such collection, use and handling of this information. Guttrball may also appoint third party agents in connection with its marketing and survey efforts, subject to a confidentiality agreement concerning the information. In any case, Guttrball will not, without your consent, disclose any such personal information for use in connection with an unrelated third party's marketing efforts.
Guttrball does not send unsolicited bulk emails or marketing-related communications to anyone who has requested that we not contact them. We send promotional information and communications only to those who have taken affirmative steps to subscribe to these communications or our existing registered customers, who have not unsubscribed or opted out of such communications. You may "opt-out" of our promotional use of your personal information (see 3 below [Choices & Resources With Respect to your Personal Information]).
If you have opted out of our promotional use of such personal information (see 3 below [Opt-Out, Amend or Delete Contact]), Guttrball will not use or disclose such information except as follows:
- to communicate directly with you in connection with your Guttrball products, purchases or specific requests;
- to validate credit card numbers;
- to permit our website designers to develop features and services that meet your needs (see 4 below, including Cookies [Cookies]);
- to tailor your experience on our Website, showing you individually tailored content (see 4 below, including Cookies [Cookies]);
- to comply with a lawful subpoena or court order;
- to remedy any violation or breach of an agreement between you and Guttrball; and
- to prevent harm to the property or rights of Guttrball or its customers.
3. Choices & Resources With Respect to Your Personal Information
In response to any Guttrball promotional or marketing communication, such as a newsletter or other circulation, if you wish to no longer receive such communications, please follow the "unsubscribe" instructions contained in such communication. The entity or business group sending such communication will mark your personal information with this request to cease further marketing communications. However, you may receive future communications from other entities or business groups within Guttrball that have received your personal information, unless you have already unsubscribed from such communications from those other entities or business groups or you have communicated a request to opt-out of such communications from all Guttrball business groups.
Opt-Out, Amend or Delete Contact.

With respect to amendment or deletion of certain information, we will endeavor to provide a simple way to review, correct, update or remove personal information, as applicable. In some limited circumstances, such as to resolve disputes, comply with retention obligations, troubleshoot problems and enforce our Terms and Conditions, we may retain in our files information you have requested us to remove, but such information is not actively used.
4. Collection, Use & Sharing of Passive & Other Information Beyond the Scope of Personal Information
Aggregate Information. Guttrball may share aggregate statistical information with business partners, sponsors or other third parties without sharing your personal information. For example, we may tell an advertiser that X number of visitors visited a certain area on a website, or that Y number of men and Z number of women applied for Guttrball support, but we would not disclose anything that uniquely identifies those individuals.
IP Addresses. An Internet Protocol ("IP") address is a number assigned to your computer whenever you access the Internet. An Internet Service Provider ("ISP") typically assigns a random dynamic IP address at the time of your dial-up. For local area network ("LAN"), DSL, or cable modem users, a static IP address may be permanently assigned to a particular computer. Guttrball may record IP addresses of visitors to its Website. While an IP address may reveal your ISP or geographic area, we cannot determine your identity solely based upon your IP address. Other websites you visit have IP addresses, and we may collect the IP addresses of those websites and their pages, but these IP addresses are never associated with Internet users.
The Website may contain web beacons, which are electronic images (sometimes called "single-pixel gifs") that allow us to count page views, or to access cookies. We may also include web beacons in HTML-formatted newsletters containing graphics that we may send to opt-in subscribers, to count the number of newsletters that have been opened and read. Our web beacons do not collect, gather, monitor, or share any personal information about our website visitors. They are used only to compile our anonymous, aggregate statistics about website usage.
Guttrball products and connected device applications may collect, use, and share precise location data, including the real-time geographic location of your Guttrball product or connected device using a Guttrball application in order to provide location-based services and features. Where available, geolocation features may use GPS, Bluetooth, and your IP Address, along with crowd-sourced Wi-Fi hotspot and cell tower locations, and other technologies to determine the approximate location of your device and/or Guttrball product. Unless you provide consent, this location data (if collected at all) is collected anonymously in a form that does not personally identify you and is used by Guttrball, its affiliates and servicers generally to provide and improve location-based products and services. For example, your Guttrball application may share the geographic location of your connected device or Guttrball product with Guttrball, its affiliates and servicers when you opt in to geolocation features within applications or Guttrball products. Some geolocation features require combination with personal information in order to function. For example, some Guttrball products with geolocation features are combined with product identification numbers that are tied to Personal Information.
Performance and Use of Your Guttrball Product.
Guttrball products and connected device applications may collect, use, and share data related to your use of and the performance of your Guttrball Product. This data (if collected at all) is collected either through your use of connected device applications or through diagnostic tools and is used by Guttrball, its affiliates and servicers generally to provide more effective service and maintenance of your Guttrball product, as well as to continue to provide and improve quality products, features and services.

Links & Third Party Sites.
We take safeguarding your data seriously. We seek to use reasonable information security measures to help protect your personal information. Unfortunately, even though we take measures to protect your personal information, no data transmission or storage system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit, and you do at your own risk.
Children's Online Privacy Protection.
The Guttrball Website complies with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA). COPPA and its accompanying FTC regulation protects the privacy of children using the Internet. Guttrball does not knowingly collect contact or personally identifiable information from children under 13. The Guttrball Website is not intended to solicit information of any kind from children under 13, and is designed to block our knowing acceptance of any such information, wherever age related information is requested. It is possible that by fraud or deception we may receive information pertaining to children under 13. If we are notified of this, as soon as we verify the information, we will immediately obtain parental consent or otherwise delete the information from our servers.
