Please read the following to learn what information we collect from you (the “User” or the “End User”) and how we use that information. If you have any questions about our privacy policy, please email us.

PLEASE READ THIS PRIVACY POLICY CAREFULLY BY ACCESSING OR USING OUR WEBSITE. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE READ, UNDERSTOOD, AND AGREE TO BE BOUND TO ALL THE TERMS OF THIS PRIVACY POLICY AND OUR WEBSITE TERMS OF USE.

1. CHANGES TO PRIVACY POLICY:

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes to this privacy statement, so that you are aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. We reserve the right to modify this privacy statement at any time subject to the provisions of laws. So please review it frequently. If we make material changes to this policy, we will notify you here, by email, or by means of notice on our home page.

2. TYPES OF INFORMATION COLLECTED AND USES OF COLLECTED INFORMATION:

We collect two types of information about our Website Users: Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information.

PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION:

Personally Identifiable Information is information that identifies a specific End User. When you engage in certain activities on the Website, such as creating an account, submitting content and/or posting content in discussion forums, filling out a survey, posting a review, sending us feedback, requesting information, posting a video, we may ask you to provide certain information about yourself. It is optional for you to engage in an Identification Activity. If you select to engage in an Identification Activity, however, we may ask you to provide us with certain personal information about yourself, such as your first and last name, mailing address (including zip code), email address, and telephone number. Depending on the activity, some of the information we ask you to provide is identified as mandatory and some is identified as voluntary. If you do not provide the mandatory information for a particular activity that requires it, you will not be permitted to engage in that activity.

We use Personally Identifiable Information to enhance the operation of the Website, analyze Website use. Your comments may contain personal information such as your name, we will obtain consent from you to post your name along with your comment prior to posting your comment for public view.

We may also use Personally Identifiable Information to troubleshoot, resolve disputes, accomplish administrative tasks, contact you, enforce our agreements with you, including our Website Terms of Use and this Privacy Policy, comply with applicable law, and cooperate with law enforcement activities.

NON-PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION:

Non-Personally Identifiable Information is information that does not identify a specific End User. This type of information may include things like the Uniform Resource Locator (“URL”) of the website you visited before coming to our Website, the URL of the website you visit after leaving our Website, the type of browser you are using and your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address.

We use Non-Personally Identifiable Information to troubleshoot, administer the Website, analyze trends, gather demographic information, comply with applicable law, and cooperate with law enforcement activities. We may also share this information with our authorized Third Party Service Providers and Advertisers to measure the overall effectiveness of our online advertising, content, and programming.

3. RELEASE OF PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION:

We will not sell, share, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties unless we have your permission or are required by law to do so. We undertake not to disclose the information provided by the user to any person unless such action is necessary to the extent required by law and for regulatory purposes.

  • We may share your information for our Protection and the Protection of Others. 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 served on our Website; enforce or apply this Privacy Policy, our Website Terms of Use or other agreements; or protect the rights, property or safety of the Website, its Users or others.

4. TAKING CARE OF YOUR PASSWORD'S (PASSWORD SECURITY):

We take security seriously and take numerous precautions to protect the security of Personally Identifiable Information. You can access your Personally Identifiable Information on our Website through a password and your email address. This password is encrypted. We recommend that you do not share your password with anyone. In addition, your Personally Identifiable Information resides on a secure server that only selected personnel and contractors have access to.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we employ commercially reasonable security measures to protect data and seek to partner with companies which do the same, we cannot guarantee the security of any information transmitted to or from the Website, and are not responsible for the actions of any third parties that may receive any such information.

We firmly believe in protecting the personal information of the user. GKF Portal Super Administrator or Chapter Administrator or any of its staff or official will never ask for any password or related information from its users and the users are also advised, in order to protect access to their accounts and to other channels, do not disclose the passwords to anyone. The entry to this website is strictly restricted to those persons who are provided with ids and password by Super Administrator or Chapter Administrator and those who are not provided with id and password will be deemed to be an intruder/trespasser.

Generally the default password will be generated by system administrator and once it is received by you, you are requested to change the same and have your own password. It is recommended that the users necessarily choose their own passwords carefully such that no unauthorized access is made by a third party. The users are also advised not to keep any written or other record of the password/s so that no third party could access the same. The users will also need to undertake not to disclose the password to anyone.

In order that the passwords become complex and difficult for others to guess the you should carefully choose the alpha numeric passwords with combination of upper case alphabets and numbers and special characters.( like @,%,&,! etc.).

The password is private information and must be kept confidential by the owner of the username related to the password. If a password is known by someone other than the owner, that username and password could be misused to access resources and information possibly with criminal intent—and without notice since they would appear as the registered owner.

If you believe that any information we are holding on you is incorrect or incomplete, please write to or email us as soon as possible, at the above address. We will promptly correct any information found to be incorrect.

5. UPDATING AND CORRECTING INFORMATION

We believe that you should have the ability to access and edit the Personally Identifiable Information you provide us. You may change any of your Personally Identifiable Information by logging into your account and accessing the "my account" section of the site, sending us an email at info@globalkongu.com. Please indicate your name, address and email address, and what information you would like to update when you contact us.

We encourage you to promptly update your Personally Identifiable Information if it changes. You may ask to have the information on your account deleted or removed; however, because we keep track of past transactions, you cannot delete information associated with past transactions on the Website. In addition, in may be impossible for us to completely delete all of your information because we periodically backup information.

6. USER CHOICES ON COLLECTION AND USE OF INFORMATION:

As discussed above, you can always choose not to provide information, although it may be required to engage in a certain activity on the Website.

8. OTHER TRACKING DEVICES:

We may use other industry standard technologies like pixel tags and web beacons to track your use of our Website pages and promotions, or we may allow our Third Party Service Providers to use these devices on our behalf. Pixel tags and web beacons are tiny graphic images placed on certain pages on our Website, or in our emails that allow us to determine whether you have performed a specific action. When you access these pages or open or click an email, pixel tags and web beacons generate a Non-Personally Identifiable notice of that action. Pixel tags allow us to measure and improve our understanding of visitor traffic and behaviour on our Website, as well as give us a way to measure our promotions and performance.
