i. the IP address of the visitor's personal computer; the country from which the inquiry is made; the pages visited; the time at which a visit is made and the browser type; and
ii. certain personal details of the visitor (these may for instance include his/her name); contact details; whether the visitor holds any professional licenses, e-mail address and wishes to receive information and if so, what kind of information. This PI information, when collected, is not electronically encrypted.

Personal data may be processed and disclosed as described above in any country in which we conduct business or have a service provider. This may include some countries that do not provide the same statutory protection for Personal Data as your local jurisdiction. GFG will cease to use your PI Information for direct marketing purposes if you request us to do so.
GFG’S POLICY IS TO RESTRICT ACCESS TO PI INFORMATION concerning individuals to employees and agents who have a need to use that information and who have been instructed to handle such information properly and observe confidentiality.
AN INDIVIDUAL OR ANOTHER PERSON PERMITTED UNDER THE LAW on his/her behalf has the right to be informed by GFG whether it holds PI Information about that individual and to request access to and/or correction of any such PI Information. In order to deal with any such request, we will require evidence from you that you are the individual in respect of whom the request is made or a person permitted under the local law to make the request on that individual's behalf. We will deal with any such request as soon as possible.
