Collection of your Personal Information

GrowthPoint Inc also collects anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favorites.

There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by GrowthPoint Inc. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring Web site addresses. This information is used by GrowthPoint Inc for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the GrowthPoint Inc Web site.

Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through GrowthPoint Inc public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others. Note: GrowthPoint Inc does not read any of your private online communications.

GrowthPoint Inc encourages you to review the privacy statements of Web sites you choose to link to from GrowthPoint Inc so that you can understand how those Web sites collect, use and share your information. GrowthPoint Inc is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on Web sites outside of the GrowthPoint Inc and GrowthPoint Inc family of Web sites.

Use of your Personal Information

GrowthPoint Inc collects and uses your personal information to operate the GrowthPoint Inc Web site and deliver the services you have requested. GrowthPoint Inc also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from GrowthPoint Inc and its affiliates. GrowthPoint Inc may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.

GrowthPoint Inc does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. GrowthPoint Inc may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, GrowthPoint Inc may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to GrowthPoint Inc, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.

GrowthPoint Inc does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.

GrowthPoint Inc keeps track of the Web sites and pages our customers visit within GrowthPoint Inc, in order to determine what GrowthPoint Inc services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within GrowthPoint Inc to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.

GrowthPoint Inc Web sites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on GrowthPoint Inc or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of GrowthPoint Inc; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of GrowthPoint Inc, or the public.

Use of Cookies

The GrowthPoint Inc Web site use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize GrowthPoint Inc pages, or register with GrowthPoint Inc site or services, a cookie helps GrowthPoint Inc to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same GrowthPoint Inc Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the GrowthPoint Inc features that you customized.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the GrowthPoint Inc services or Web sites you visit.


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Security of your Personal Information

GrowthPoint Inc secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. GrowthPoint Inc secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
