Collecting Information About You
Like most website operators, GHi also collects data that does not, on its own, identify a specific individual. Some examples of non-identifying information that we gather includes information that web browsers, depending on their settings, may make available when you use the Services and information that you provide when you create a profile, including gender, age, product and service purchase history, interests, medical history and medications (“Other Information”). Other Information includes your Internet Protocol (IP) address, operating system, browser type and the locations of the websites you view right before arriving at, while navigating and immediately after leaving the Website. We analyze Other Information to help us better understand how the Website is being used. By identifying patterns and trends in usage, we are able to better design the Website to improve users’ experiences, both in terms of content and ease of use. We may also release Other Information in the aggregate such as by publishing a report on trends in the usage of the Website. We do not consider Other Information to be Personally Identifiable Information, and will not treat it as Personally Identifiable Information unless the Other Information is linked with Personally Identifiable Information in a way that renders the Other Information individually identifiable.

We may disclose information about you (i) if we believe if good faith that the law requires it or are required to do so by law or legal process, (ii) to law enforcement authorities or other government officials, or (iii) when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm or financial loss, or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual fraudulent or illegal activity.
Business Transfers. We may transfer Personally Identifiable Information to other entities and affiliates in the event we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets.
