Privacy Policy


Your safety and Security

Global Participants is committed to safeguarding your privacy online. Please read the following policy to understand how your personal information will be treated as you make full use of our website and services.

Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online - for example on message boards, through email, or in chat areas - that information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return.

What personally identifiable information does Global Participants collect from me?

Global Participants collects information in several ways from different parts of our network of web sites. Some personal information is gathered when you register. During registration, Global Participants asks for your name, email address, household information and personal interests. The more information you volunteer (and the more accurate it is), the better we are able to customize your experience. Once you register you are no longer anonymous to Global Participants - use to access the various protected areas of the site.

What are cookies and how does Global Participants use them?

A cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer's hard drive. As part of offering and providing customizable and personalized services, Global Participants may use cookies to store and sometimes track information about you. Some areas on Global Participants where you are prompted to log-in or that are customizable may require that you accept cookies. This avoids you having to enter your login information many times in one day.

Who is collecting information and for what purpose?

Global Participants collects valuable information which assists in developing new products and services. When you are on a Global Participants site and are asked for personal information, you are sharing that information with Global Participants alone, unless it is specifically stated otherwise. If data is being collected and/or maintained by any company other than Global Participants, you will be notified prior to the time of the data collection or transfer. If you do not want your data to be shared, you can choose not to allow the transfer by not using that particular service.
