Collection of Information

Information about you

GCO actively collects personal information about you only when you voluntarily provide it. This information may include your name, email address, phone number, mailing address and other information as defined by applicable federal, state or local law. We may also collect sensitive personal information relating to individual health concerns, to ensure meals and/or hotel room arrangements to accommodate those concerns.
Information about your computer
We passively collect information about your computer, such as your Internet domain name, IP address, type of browser your computer is using, the date and time of your visit, and the page(s) you visited on our website. This is done automatically using a variety of tools, including cookies, server log files and other forms of navigational data collection, such as pixel tags and web beacons.

Information Use

We use the passively collected information about your computer to learn about the number of people who visit our site and the technology used, to assist in making changes to our website, to improve the content of our website and for business planning purposes.
If you choose to provide information to us through our site by use of registration forms or otherwise (company name, email address, telephone number, etc.) such information may be used to fulfill your request and also may be used by us for other purposes related to your visit to our site or to further our business purposes.

In general, we will not share personally identifiable information about you with third parties. We may send personally identifiable information about you, including your email address, to other companies or people when:

  • We have your consent to share the information;
  • We need to share this information to provide to you the information, product or service you have requested;
  • We are required to share this information pursuant to Open Payments laws or EFPIA regulations;
  • We respond to subpoenas, court orders or legal process; or
  • We find or have reason to believe that your actions on our website violate website terms or conditions or are in violation of law.

We may transfer the personal information we collect about you to countries other than the country in which the information was originally collected. Those countries may not have the same data protection laws as the country in which you initially provided the information. When we transfer your information to other countries, we will protect that information as described in this Privacy Policy. If you are located in the European Economic Area (“EEA”), we comply with applicable legal requirements providing adequate protection for the transfer of personal information to countries outside of the EEA.

Third Parties

Your personal information may be shared with our business partners, such as air and ground travel and hotel service providers, in order to fulfill your online registration request for those services. These business partners are not permitted to use the information for any purpose other than to fulfill your request and we require them to comply with our confidentiality policies. Your computer information, which does not identify you personally, will be aggregated with the information on other website users for analysis, which may be done by GCO or by a subcontractor. Your information will not be sold but may be released if the disclosure is required by law, in the event of a corporate sale, merger or similar event, or our systems administrators need to access the information as part of an investigation into technical problems (e.g., spider, bot, and worm), vandalizing, or other misuse of the GCO website.
