4.1 Certain services available on the Site are offered in conjunction with GFS's business partners.

4.2 In order for those services to be provided, GFS provides some necessary details about you to its business partners.  GFS tells you about this at the point it collects that information on the Site.  Please note that certain services may be unavailable if you do not want to disclose the personal information you are asked for.

4.3 GFS may transfer your personal information to a third party as part of a sale of some or all of its business and assets to any third party or as part of any business restructuring or reorganisation, but GFS will take steps with the aim of ensuring that your privacy rights continue to be protected.

4.4 In addition GFS may pass your information onto one of its carefully selected business partners or to other carefully selected third parties to enable them to send you information which may be of interest to you but only if you have given GFS permission to do so.  You can tell GFS to stop this at any time by sending an email to info@justshoutgfs.com.

4.5 Other than as set out above, GFS will not disclose any of your personal information without your permission unless GFS is required by law to do so (for example, if required to do so by a court order or for the purposes of prevention of fraud or other crime).

5. Information automatically collected from your computer

5.1 Log files/IP addresses: When you visit the Site GFS's web server automatically records your IP address.  This IP address is not linked to any of your personal information.  GFS uses IP addresses to help it administer the Site and to collect demographic information for aggregation purposes.

5.2 GFS may also gather other non-personal information (from which GFS cannot identify you) such as the type of your internet browser which GFS uses to provide you with a more effective service.

6. Cookies

6.1 When you visit the Site GFS may store some information (commonly known as a 'cookie') on your computer.  Cookies are pieces of information that a website transfers to your hard drive to store and sometimes track information about you.  Cookies are specific to the server that created them and cannot be accessed by other servers, which means that they cannot be used to track your movements around the web.  Passwords and credit card numbers are not stored in cookies.  A cookie helps you get the best out of the Site and helps GFS to provide you with a more customised service.  GFS use cookies so that you will not have to re-enter your details each time you visit the Site and to track how the Site is used and to improve and update its content.

6.2 You can block or erase cookies from your computer if you want to (your browser's help screen or manual should tell you how to do this), but certain parts of the Site are reliant on the use of cookies to operate correctly and may not work correctly if you set your browser not to accept cookies.

6.3 If you register with GFS or if you continue to use the Site, you agree to GFS's use of cookies.

7. Information about other products and services

7.1 From time to time GFS may send you information about our goods and services that it thinks may be of interest to you.

7.2 You can tell GFS to stop this at any time by sending an email to info@justshoutgfs.com.

7.3 Also, as mentioned above, GFS may pass your information onto one of its business partners or to other selected third parties to enable them to send you information which may be of interest to you but only if you have given GFS permission to do so.  You can tell GFS to stop this at any time by sending an email to info@justshoutgfs.com.

8. Changes to your details

GFS aims to keep its information about you as accurate as possible.  If you would like to review or change the details you have supplied GFS with, you may do so at any time by contacting GFS as set out below.

9. Security

GFS has implemented technology and policies to safeguard your privacy from unauthorised access and improper use.  [GFS uses secure server software (SSL) to encrypt any financial information you need to input before it is sent to GFS.]

10. Linking to third-party websites

10.1 GFS cannot be responsible for the privacy policies and practices of other sites even if you access them using links from the Site and recommend that you check the policy of each site you visit and contact its owner or operator if you have any concerns or questions.

10.2 In addition, if you linked to the Site from a third-party site, GFS cannot be responsible for the privacy policies and practices of the owners or operators of that third-party site and recommend that you check the policy of that third party site and contact its owner or operator if you have any concerns or questions.

11. Transferring your information outside of Europe

11.1 As part of the services offered to you through the Site, the information you provide to GFS may be transferred to countries outside of the European Union ("EU").  By way of example, this may happen if any of GFS's servers are located in a country outside of the EU or one of GFS's service providers is located in a country outside of the EU.  These countries may not have similar data protection laws to the UK.  If GFS transfers your information outside of the EU in this way, GFS will take steps, and will use its best endeavours to procure that its customers take steps, with the aim of ensuring that your privacy rights continue to be protected as outlined in this privacy policy.

11.2 If you use GFS's services while you are outside the EU, your information may be transferred outside the EU in order to provide you with those services.
