Information GED Collects and Uses
Your Personal Information. When you place an order for a GED Product or make an inquiry regarding a GED Product, GED needs to know your name, email and mailing addresses, and your billing information so that GED can fill, confirm and ship your order, notify you of your order status and process your payment or respond to your GED Product inquiry. GED may also request some of this same information from you when you ask a question or make a comment through GED’s websites or mobile applications in order for GED to respond appropriately. For administration purposes, GED’s websites or mobile applications may collect your IP address or domain name, referring web page, browser type, mobile device type, device operating system, device settings, and non-personal information about the way you use your device or this site (such as the length of time spent or the pages accessed while visiting this site). GED may use third-party website analytics tools and embedded tracking codes that collect information about visitor traffic on GED’s websites and mobile applications to collect information about you.
Disclosure of Information to Third Parties. GED does not rent or sell to others any information about GED’s customers. GED does not grant permission to third parties to collect information regarding the online activities of GED’s website or mobile application users over time and across different websites. However, GED may provide your personal information to third parties who provide services on GED’s behalf, such as the companies engaged to deliver your order and process your payment.

Security of Your Information
GED’s Responsibility. The security of your information is important to GED.

Due to the possibility of transmission errors, hacking or other unauthorized third-party activities, GED cannot guarantee that personal data transmitted to our website and mobile applications will remain secure. If GED becomes aware of a security breach involving any such data, GED will make all legally required disclosures consistent with GED’s ability to determine the scope of the breach, GED’s need to restore the integrity of the system and the needs of law enforcement.
Credit Card Information. Whenever GED transmits your credit card information over the Internet, GED uses industry standard Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption for all pages containing private information pertaining to your shipments. Your full credit card number is never displayed when you use GED’s websites or mobile applications. When you use a saved credit card, GED will only include the last four digits of the credit card number on the order page so that you can tell which credit card you used.
