These Terms and Conditions of Use (the "Agreement") govern all web sites hosted by Global Exchange Technologies.
Any User interacting with our site and providing Global Exchange Technologies with name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, domain name or URL or any other personally identifiable information permits Global Exchange Technologies, Inc. to use such information for commercial purposes of its own, including contacting Users about products and services which may be of interest. For each visitor to our Web Site, our Web server recognizes only the visitor's domain name, not the e-mail address. We collect information volunteered by the visitor, such as form submittals and/or site registrations. This information is used to improve the content of our Web site, it is not shared with other organizations for commercial purposes. Any User who does not wish to receive further contacts from Global Exchange Technologies should send Global Exchange Technologies, Inc. a specific request (i.e., stating do not use or do not share or both) by certified mail or by regular mail clearly marked "Privacy-Urgent" addressed as follows: Global Exchange Technologies, 19049 Bartow Blvd, Fort Myers, Florida 33912.

Security - Global Exchange Technologies takes every precaution to protect our users' information. When users submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and off-line. When our registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number and/or social security number), that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry - SSL. While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when you are just 'surfing'.
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. All of our users' information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Our employees must use password-protected screen-savers when they leave their desk. When they return, they must re-enter their password to re-gain access to your information. Furthermore, ALL employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Every quarter, as well as any time new policies are added, our employees are notified and/or reminded about the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to ensure our customers' information is protected. Finally, the servers that we store personally identifiable information on are kept in a secure environment.
Interest-based advertising on any Global Exchange Techologies site may allow advertisers to show ads based on a user's previous interactions with them, such as visits to advertiser website and also to reach users based on their interests (e.g. "sports enthusiast"). To develop interest categories, we may recognize the types of web pages users visit throughout the network. As an example, if they visit a number of sports pages, we will add them to the "sports enthusiast" interest category.
