Automatic information is information that we may collect automatically whenever you interact with this website such as your IP address, the type of computer you use, the web browser you use, and the web page that linked you to our site. An IP address is a number assigned to your computer when you connect to the Internet. Each time you visit this site, our web server may automatically recognize and collect this information. Automatic information also includes "cookies" and "web beacons".
Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies but allow you to change your browser so that it will not automatically accept cookies. Various browsers have different ways to inform you when a cookie has been sent to you, limit the kinds of cookies that can be placed on your computer and let you delete cookies. Please refer to your browser instructions or help screen to learn more about these functions. Additionally, if you have a Flash player installed on your computer, flash cookies may be stored. Flash cookies are different from browser cookies and the cookie management tools provided by your browser will not necessarily remove Flash cookies. The latest versions of many browsers let you control or delete Flash cookies through the browser's settings. If you use an older version of one of these browsers, upgrade to the most recent version, and set it to update automatically. However, if you delete or remove cookies, it is possible that some portions of the site may not function as intended.
"Web beacons", also known as clear GIFs or single-pixel GIFs, or similar technologies are small image files that we may place on web pages and within web-based email newsletters that we send. Working in conjunction with cookies, web beacons allow us to accurately count the number of unique users who have visited a specific page and the number of times those pages are displayed. We can also use web beacons to let us know how many people opened a web-based email newsletter or message.
We may associate automatic information with your personal information. In the event of such association, such automatic information will be considered personal information.
Finally, GC SHOES occasionally obtains email addresses of active GC SHOES store customers who requested fashion emails on other websites and the email addresses and/or phone numbers of people who submitted their contact information to Internet search engines to be contacted by GC SHOES. GC SHOES also reserves the right to obtain publicly accessible customer demographics.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be unconditionally guaranteed to be secure. Therefore, any information you transmit to us is sent at your own risk.
However, when you place an order online, we use encryption technology, such as Secure Socket Layer Technology ("SSL"), to protect your personal information during data transport. SSL encrypts your order information, including your name, address, and credit card number, before it is transmitted to us to avoid the decoding of your information by anyone other than GC SHOES.
In addition, when you create an online account on mygcshoes.com, you must select a personal password. As a member of GC SHOES's website, you will be able to view, among other things, your account profile, contact preferences, order history, address book.

In order to help protect your personal information, you should be careful about maintaining the secrecy of your password.
We may use and/or disclose to others information about your demographics and use of our website in a manner that does not reveal your identity. We may match information collected from you at our website with information obtained collected from other sources or third parties.
From time to time, we may partner with a co-sponsor to conduct a contest, sweepstakes or other promotional event. In those situations, each of the participating web sites may collect or receive personal information from you and will have the right to use your personal information in accordance with their own policies.
We may disclose personal information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may have breached our Conditions of Use or who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) our rights or property, other users of our website, or anyone else who could be harmed by such activities.
Can I unsubscribe?
Yes. GC SHOES honors requests to unsubscribe from receipt of emails, not only for promotional emails that GC SHOES sends, but also for emails about GC SHOES that we permit other companies to send to their own list of subscribers.
