The information you submit to the GD Website may also include text, photographs, video, graphics and any other materials you might submit as part of, or in conjunction with, your use of the GD Website.

As explained on the GD Website, GD will provide and make available the personal information you provide as a GD Website user to those charities that will be in your neighborhood on the day that you would like to make your personal or households goods available for pick-up.
Collection of Your Data
In addition to the personal information you supply, we collect certain information to evaluate how visitors, guests, and members use the GD Website. We collect data to make our service work better for you in the following ways: to improve the design of the GD Website, to provide personalization on the GD Website and to evaluate the performance of our marketing programs. The technologies we use to gather this non-personal information may include “IP” addresses, “cookies”, “clear gifs”, “browser detection”, and “weblogs”.
How we use information
Our goal in collecting your information is to provide you with a personalized, relevant, and positive experience with the GD Website. GD will not share your personal information with others except as set forth in this policy.
You can register on the GD Website to receive promotions and updates. You can control your privacy preferences regarding such marketing communications (see the section below entitled “Your Privacy Preferences”).
From time to time, you may be invited to participate in optional customer surveys, and GD may request that you provide some or all of the above listed personal information in those surveys. We use information collected from surveys to learn about our customers in order to improve our services and develop new products and services of interest to our customers.
The GD Website uses “IP” addresses, “cookies”, “clear gifs”, browser detection, and “weblogs” to provide a better experience on our website and to give us useful business information.
“IP” addresses define the Internet location of computers and help us better understand the geographic distribution of our members and manage the performance of the GD Website. “Cookies” are tiny files placed onto the hard drive of your computer when you visit the GD Website, so we can immediately recognize you when you return to the site and deliver content specific to your interests. You may modify your browser preferences to accept all cookies, be notified when a cookie is set, or reject all cookies. Please consult your browser instructions for information on how to modify your choices about cookies.
We may also use a technology called “clear gifs”. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with unique identifiers that are used to track emails and online movements, helping us understand what marketing campaigns and content are effective.
We detect the type of web browser you are using to optimize the performance of our website and to understand the mix of browsers used by our visitors, guests, and members. To learn about how people use our site, we examine “weblogs”, which show the paths people take through our site and how long they spend in certain areas.
GD also sometimes contract with unaffiliated third parties to provide services, such as software for site features, customer communications, analyzing and evaluating the information we collect, and other services. When we do this, we may provide your personally identifiable information to third parties only to provide those services, and they are not authorized to use your personally identifiable information for any other purpose.
Blogs and Chatrooms
The GD Website may include blogs, chatrooms, bulletin boards or other message areas that allow users to post information to the GD Website. When you post messages, other site visitors can also view them. We urge you to exercise caution when providing personally identifiable financial or other information in the chatrooms, bulletin boards or other message areas. Remember that any information you disclose in these areas becomes public information.
Our Commitment to Data Security
Access to your data is limited to authorized GD staff, approved vendors and approved charities. Although total security does not exist on the Internet, GD shall make commercially reasonable efforts to safeguard the information that you submit to the GD Website.
Use of the GD Website by Children
The services offered at the GD Website are not intended for use by children. GD will not knowingly collect any personally identifiable information submitted by visitors to the GD Website site who are under the age of 13.

We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order or legal process. It is also possible that GD would sell all or substantially all of its assets and business. In any transaction of this kind, customer information, including your personally identifiable information, may be among the assets that are transferred. If we decide to so transfer your personally identifiable information, you will be notified by email or a post to the GD Website.
