These service providers' are subject to confidentiality agreements with us and other legal restrictions that prohibit their use of the information we provide them for any other purpose except to facilitate the specific outsourced related operation, unless you have explicitly agreed or given your prior permission to them for additional uses. From time to time, we may be required to provide personal information in response to a valid court order, subpoena, government investigation, or as otherwise required by law.

If you submit your contact information and resume for employment purposes with us, this information will only be used to evaluate your qualifications for the desired position and possibly to contact you for further information.

If you complete online surveys on any of our Web Sites, GDI may use the information collected from the online surveys to compile reports on customer satisfaction for our customers. Due to the sensitive nature of research data, any information that is collected is treated with the utmost confidentiality. GDI will not sell any personal information gathered from individual respondents.

This information will not be shared with any third party, except as specifically provided in this Privacy Policy, as it may be amended from time to time.

As with any business, it is possible that as our business develops, we might sell or buy online stores or other assets.

Safe Shopping

GDI makes commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that personal information collected from you is protected against loss and unauthorized access. GDI uses industry standard security techniques on our Web Sites to help protect against the loss, misuse or modification of information that you have provided. Our transactional Web Sites use secure sockets layer (SSL) encryption for securing communications and transactions across the Internet. The SSL protocol uses digital certificates to create and secure confidential communications "pip" between the purchaser and our web entity. Data transmitted over an SSL connection cannot be tampered with or forged without the two parties becoming immediately aware of the tampering. While we implement the above security measures, you should be aware that 100% security is not possible and GDI disclaims any liability should an unauthorized breach occur.

Choice of Law; Jurisdiction. These Policies and Terms and Conditions supersede any other agreement between you and GDI, and/or its affiliates and subsidiaries to the extent necessary to resolve any inconsistency or ambiguity between them. These Policies and Terms and Conditions will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Province of Quebec, without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of laws. Any action seeking legal or equitable relief arising out of or relating to the Web Sites will be brought only in the courts of the Judicial District of Montreal, Province of Quebec, Canada. A printed version of these Policies and Terms and Conditions will be admissible in judicial and administrative proceedings based upon or relating to these Policies and Terms and Conditions to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form, provided that the date on which these Policies and Terms and Conditions were printed is embedded in the printed document. The parties have requested that these Policies and Terms and Conditions be drawn up in English.

Termination. You or we may suspend or terminate your account or your use of the Web Sites at any time, for any reason or for no reason. You are personally liable for any orders placed or charges incurred through your account prior to termination. We reserve the right to change, suspend, or discontinue all or any aspect of the Web Sites at any time without notice.

Notification of changes to Privacy Policy. Should we decide to amend this Privacy Policy, we will provide reasonable prior notice of such changes to you. All amended terms will automatically take effect 30 days after we provide such notice, or on a date that we specify in the notice. While in some instances we may provide notice by email or other means, you agree that notice on the Web Sites about changes to this Privacy Policy shall be deemed sufficient notice to you. Your continued use of the Web Sites after the effective date of the changes to this Privacy Policy shall mean that you accept and agree to be bound by those changes.
