Privacy Policy

 


Information Collection

Gearkeeper.eu is a division of Avera B.V. The Netherlands (hereinafter "Avera").
Avera is the sole owner of the information collected on this website.
Information from our users is collected at several different points on our website.

We request information from the user on several forms on our site. A user must provide contact information (such as name, e-mail, and address). This information is used for tracking purposes and to respond to user requests. If we have trouble processing a request, the information is used to contact the user.


Information Use

We collect user information to track and identify current and potential clients.
The information is stored in a database, and we will use the information to contact users at a later time about our products and services. By filling out our online forms, users give consent to be contacted by us.
If a user asks us to remove us from a contact list, the user's personal information will be flagged as "do not contact."


Cookies

A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's computer tied to information about the user.
Some of our business partners use cookies via links from our site. We have no access to or control over these cookies.
This privacy statement covers the use of cookies by our website only and does not cover the use of cookies by our business partners.


Log Files

Like most standard website servers, we (through our web host provider) use log files.
This includes Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.
IP addresses, etc. are not linked to personally identifiable information.


Communications from the Site


Special Offers and Updates

Users who provide personal information, such as name and e-mail address, will occasionally receive information on products, services, special deals, and a newsletter. Out of respect for the privacy of our users, we present the option to not receive these types of communications.


Newsletter

If a user wishes to subscribe to our newsletter, we ask for contact information such as name and e-mail address. Out of respect for our users' privacy, we provide a way to opt-out of these communications.


Customer Service

We communicate with users on a regular basis to provide requested services and in regards to issues relating to their account. We reply via e-mail or phone, in accordance with the user's wishes.

 

Sharing


Legal Disclaimer

Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on our website. That said, the personal information you provide via the website or by third parties under contract to provide services on our website will never be sold, rented, or given to another party without our consent and your consent.


Service Providers

We may partner with others to provide specific services, specifically e-mail distribution services. When the user signs up for these particular services, we share names or other contact information that is necessary for the partners to provide these services. These partners are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.


Business Transitions

In the event we go through a business transition, such as a merger, being acquired by another company, or selling a portion of its assets, users' personal information will, in most instances, be part of the assets transferred.


Choice/Opt-out

Our users are given the opportunity to 'opt-out' of having their information used for purposes not directly related to our site.
Users who no longer wish to receive our newsletter and promotional communications may opt-out of receiving these communications by replying to unsubscribe in the subject line in the e-mail or e-mail us at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
Users of our site are always notified when their information is being collected by any outside parties. We do this so our users can make an informed choice as to whether or not they should proceed with services that require an outside party.


Links

This website contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this website.


Surveys & Contests

From time-to-time, our site may requests information from users via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name and address), and demographic information (such as zip code). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site and our products and services. Users' personally identifiable information is not shared with third parties unless we give prior notice and choice. Though we may use an intermediary to conduct these surveys or contests, they may not use users' personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.


Referral Collection

If a user elects to use our referral service for informing a friend about our site, products and services, we ask them for the friend's name, address, phone number, and e-mail address.
We store this information for the sole purpose of contacting the friend and tracking the success of our referral program. The friend may contact us at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it to request the removal of this information from our database.


Security

This website takes every precaution to protect our users' information. When users submit sensitive information via the website, their information is protected both online and off-line.


Correcting/Updating/Deleting/Deactivating Personal Information

If a user's personally identifiable information changes (such as zip code, phone, e-mail or postal address), or if a user no longer desires our service, we provide a way to correct, update or delete/deactivate users' personally identifiable information.
This can usually be done by using the contact information on the website.


Notification of Changes

Our privacy policy is subject to change without notice. If we decide to change our privacy policy materially, we will post those changes to this privacy statement, the home page, and other places we deem appropriate so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. If, however, we are going to use users' personally identifiable information in a manner materially different from that stated at the time of collection we will notify users via e-mail.
