This Web site is owned and controlled by GROUNDRocks.
Effect of This and Related Documents:
If you would like to have your personally-identifiable information removed from GROUNDRocks databases going forward, please e-mail [email protected], and we will use reasonable efforts to comply with your request. However, there will be residual information that will remain within GROUNDRocks databases, access logs, and other historical internal records, which may or may not contain such personally-identifiable information.
The Information We May Gather:
As a standard practise, GROUNDRocks assigns a random number to each user for anonymously tracking content preferences and traffic patterns. This random number lets us keep track of “how many” times users are doing specific things – like visiting our site each month – without really knowing who those users are (unless they specifically tell us). We analyse this data for trends and statistics, such as which parts of our site users are visiting and how long they spend there. We also gather information about what users are searching for. We use all this information in order to improve our content, plan site enhancements, and measure overall site effectiveness.
Personally identifiable information:
General: In certain areas of this Site, we require that you provide us with personally-identifiable information, in order to be able to use that portion or those portions of this Site.
If you submit a request for more information from us, the information you submit will only be used by GROUNDRocks. Our lists are private and are never sold to any third parties.
Note: These policies only apply to the GROUNDRocks websites and not to the websites of other companies, individuals or organisations to which we provide links. GROUNDRocks is not responsible for the content of external internet sites.
You signify your consent to us collecting and using this information by your use of this website. Should for any reason we elect to change our Terms or Policy, we will notify you of those changes on this page within our website, so that you are always kept informed of how we collect and use the information, and when we would disclose it.

Will We Disclose the Information We Collect to Third Parties?
Your privacy is important to us. GROUNDRocks may provide aggregate statistics about our services, customers, traffic patterns and other site information to third parties, but these statistics will not include any information that could personally identify you.
