With Whom Information is Shared

Public Information. GLOBEKICK may share as it sees fit information that you voluntarily make public. Since such public information can be accessed by the public and used by any member of the public, such use by third parties is beyond the control of GLOBEKICK.

Personal Information. Subject to the paragraph that follows, if we have your express consent, GLOBEKICK may share your personal information it collects with business partners and other third parties that are not affiliated with GLOBEKICK. By requesting a Service Order, however, you consent to GLOBEKICK sharing necessary personal information with the applicable Service Professional and business partners.

Under narrow circumstances, GLOBEKICK may disclose your personal information without asking for your consent to protect the legal rights of GLOBEKICK or its affiliates, and each of their respective investors, directors, officers, employees, agents, and suppliers; to protect the safety and security of users of the GLOBEKICK Services or to enforce our Terms of Service; to protect against fraud or for risk management purposes; or to comply with or respond to the law or legal process or a request for cooperation by a government entity, whether or not legally required. If you notify us that you believe your legal rights have been violated by GLOBEKICK or another user of GLOBEKICK Services, we may provide the information you provide to us to others if we believe it is necessary to evaluate and respond to your complaint. For instance, if you submit a notice of copyright infringement to us, we may send a copy to the person or entity who uploaded, stored, or transmitted the material addressed by the communication.

Non-Personal Information and Aggregate Data

GLOBEKICK may share with third parties your non-personal information and related aggregated data. For example, GLOBEKICK may share IP addresses or general demographic information of its users to provide anonymous aggregated data to business partners about the volume of use on GLOBEKICK Services and the opportunities in which users are most interested. Because this form of data does not identify particular users, these third parties will not be able to contact you based solely on this data.

Email

We want to communicate with you only if you want to hear from us. We try to keep emails to a minimum and give you the ability to opt out of any marketing communications we send.

We will send you email relating to your personal transactions. You will also receive certain marketing email communications, in accordance with your preferences, and from which you may opt out at any time. We may send you service-related announcements on the rare occasions when it is necessary to do so.

Change of Control

If GLOBEKICK sells all or part of its business, makes a sale or transfer of assets, is otherwise involved in a merger or business transfer, or in the unlikely event of bankruptcy, GLOBEKICK may transfer your personal information and non-personal information to one or more third parties as part of such transaction.
