PRIVACY POLICY (LAST UPDATED SEPTEMBER 16, 2014)


PLEASE READ THIS POLICY CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU PROVIDE US WITH ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION.

GCPrive.com is operated by GC Privé LLP, registered office at 64 Knightsbridge, London, SW1X 7JF, United Kingdom. All references within this Privacy Policy (the "Policy") to 'we/us/our' and “GC Privé” refer to GC Privé LLP.

This Policy describes the types of information GC Privé gathers from its users of the GC Privé Web site at www.gcprive.com. If you have questions about this policy, please email us at privacy@gcprive.com.

Personal Information Collection and Use

When on the GC Privé Site, you have the option of creating an account (e.g. when saving searches, signing up for alerts, sharing assets, contacting agents, etc.) and to subscribing to our premium service. When you sign up, we ask you to give us contact information (such as name, telephone number and email address).

We use the information we collect to:
• find the most relevant information by organizing the Web site optimally
• find relevant luxury asset news and information via email (if you have registered your email address)

We may also use the information you provide to allow us to contact you for administrative purposes; for example, to tell you about changes to our privacy policy. These emails generally are sent to all users in order for us to abide by notice or other requirements, or to inform you of important product or service information or changes. We may use certain information that you provide in order to present you with advertising that you may find interesting. This benefits both of us. It benefits us because advertising helps pay the bills, and we can charge our advertisers more if they know that their ads will be seen by somebody more likely to find them useful. It benefits you because you see advertising that may actually be interesting to you, rather than annoying.

Disclosure of Personal Information

GC Privé does not share, rent or sell personal information about you with other people or companies except as described in this privacy policy. For example, when you fill out a "contact the agent" form on a property listing page, or other "contact" form available on the site, the information you submit will be passed on to the agent, or the other party you have requested to contact. We reserve the right to use in any manner and also to disclose any non-personal information that we collect, including but not limited to cookie and traffic data (see "Cookies and Tracking Technologies"). We do not combine personal information with any of the non-personal information gathered on our site.

We may release personal information when we believe that doing so is appropriate to comply with the law (for example, to respond to a lawful subpoena, warrant or court order); to enforce or apply our policies; to initiate, render, bill, and collect for amounts owed to us; to protect our rights or property; to protect our users from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful use of, our site or services; or if we reasonably believe that an emergency involving immediate danger of death or serious physical injury to any person requires disclosure of communications or justifies disclosure of records without delay.

We may use third party service providers to assist us with the administration of the site or otherwise perform services on our behalf, including payment transaction processing and sending email. Such third parties may be supplied with or have access to your personal information solely to provide services to us or on our behalf.

We may use third-party ad servers (or ad networks) to deliver ads to you on our behalf. These third-party ad servers may collect and use non-personally identifiable information about your visits to our site in order to present advertisements that may be of interest to you. If you would like more information about this practice or to opt out of having this information used by third-party ad servers to provide targeted ads, please visit http://www.networkadvertising.org/optout_nonppii.asp.

Information about our users and the site is a business asset of GC Privé. Consequently, information about our users, including personal information, will be disclosed as part of any merger or acquisition, creation of a separate business to provide the site, our services or fulfill products, sale or pledge of company assets as well as in the event of an insolvency, bankruptcy or receivership in which personal information would be transferred as one of the business assets of the company.

Cookies and Tracking Technologies

We log your IP address in order to help diagnose problems with our server, administer our Web site and track usage statistics. Your IP address may vary each time you visit, or it may be the same, depending on whether you access our site through an always-on type of Internet connection (for example, a cable modem or DSL), or through a dial-up connection (for example, through a dial-up AOL or Earthlink connection). Either way, it would be extremely difficult for us to identify you through your IP address, and we make no attempt to do so. If you reached our site by clicking on a link or advertisement on another site, then we also log that information. This helps us maximize our Internet exposure, and it helps us understand our users' interests. All of this information is collected and used only in the aggregate; that is, it is entered into our database, where we can use it to generate overall reports on our visitors, but not individual reports that identify you personally.

We also place a small text file known as a "cookie" on your computer's hard drive. A cookie may contain information that allows us to track your path through our Web site and to determine whether you have visited us before. Unless you register with us, however, a cookie contains no personally identifiable information that would allow us to identify you. Cookies cannot be used to read data off of your hard drive, and cannot retrieve information from any other cookies created by other Web sites. We use cookies to help us understand how visitors use our site, and to help us to improve our site. You may refuse to accept a cookie from us by following the procedures specific to your Web browser. Although you may do so, you may find that your browser reacts strangely when visiting not only our Web site, but other Web sites as well. Since cookies don't provide us with any information from which we can identify you, we suggest you allow us to place one on your computer.

Security

We use commercially reasonable security measures to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. However, we cannot guarantee the protection of information against interception, misappropriation, misuse, or alteration or that your information may be not be disclosed or accessed by accidental circumstances or by the unauthorized acts of others. When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card number and/or social security number) on our registration or order forms, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). You should be aware that we have no control over the security of other sites on the Internet you might visit, interact with, or from which you buy products or services.

Share/Send-To-A-Friend

If you choose to use our referral service to tell a friend about our site, we will ask you for your friend's name and email address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the site. GC Privé stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email. Your friend may contact us at privacy@gcprive.com to request that we remove this information from our database.

Links to Other Sites

This Web site contains links to other sites that are not owned or controlled by GC Privé. Please be aware that we, GC Privé, are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage you to be aware when you leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every Web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies only to information collected by this Web site.

Access to Personally Identifiable Information

If your personally identifiable information changes, or if you no longer desire our service, you may correct, update, delete or deactivate it by logging into your account or by emailing our Customer Support at privacy@gcprive.com or by contacting us by postal mail at the contact information listed below.

Policy Changes

We reserve the right to change this policy should we deem it advisable to do so. If we make significant changes that affect the use or disclosure of your personal information, we will make reasonable efforts to notify you of the changes such as notifying you here, by email, or by means of a notice on our home page and will give you the opportunity to cancel your registration.
