This Statement of Privacy applies to the GPS corporate website, governs data collection and its usage. By using our websites you consent to the data practices described in this statement.

Terms Used in this Policy

Galactic Performance Solutions (“GPS”, “we”, “us”, or “our”) collects data as a result of your connection to our website. We may collect non-personally identifiable information such as IP address, operating system, and how you use our website. When we refer to "you" and "your" in this privacy policy, we refer to you, any such individual whose personal information we collect and use. When we refer to "processing" of your personal information, this includes obtaining, recording, storing or holding your personal information, and anything we do with it, such as organizing, adapting or altering it, retrieving, consulting or using it, disclosing it or otherwise making it available to others, combining it with other data, and blocking, encrypting, erasing or destroying it.

Session State

Session state allows data about a user as he/she navigates through ASP.NET web pages in a .NET web application to be temporarily stored on the web server until it is written to the database and the session has ended. Once the user ends the session the connection is closed and any data in the session is destroyed.

Cookies

"Cookies" are small information capsules (text files) that the website asks your browser to store on your computer or mobile device. This allows the website can remember actions or preferences over time. Most browsers automatically accept cookies. You can always choose to not accept a cookie by changing your browser settings to reject cookies automatically, or so that each cookie must be approved individually, but this may limit the functions available. GPS travel registration sites do not use cookies.

Do Not Track

Do not track is a web browser setting that requests that a web application disable tracking of an individual user. When DNT is enabled in your browser it sends a special signal to website analytics companies, plug in providers and other web services encountered to stop tracking your activity. GPS does not collect analytical data from its travel registration websites nor do we provide feeds to analytical services or plug-in providers, consequently we currently do not respond to DNT signaling.

We may collect information about your visits to, browsing of, and use of our website, unless your web browser blocks this. The range of data we collect will depend on how you interact with our website.

This will normally be collected and used anonymously, and aggregated for analysis, with your name and any characteristics identifying you remaining anonymous, but our privacy policy will apply, and it will be treated as your personal information, if this information is in any way linked to you personally. This information may also include: data inputted into forms and field; registrations for any accounts, forum, feedback mechanism, social functionality, newsletters or other features of our site; usernames and passwords, sign-in/out history, and settings; actions taken within any account or other registration, including view and update and changes to settings; and posts to any forum, feedback, review or other social functionality on our website.

Keeping Your Data Secure

We are committed to doing what we reasonably can to keep your personal information secure, and we are obliged to put in place appropriate technical and organizational measures against unauthorized or unlawful collection, use and disclosure of your personal information and against accidental loss or destruction of, or damage to, your personal information. We have accordingly implemented security policies, rules and technical measures with a view to achieving this. We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards (appropriate to the sensitivity of such information) designed to protect against unauthorized use, disclosure or access of the personal information we collect on this website. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we are committed to protecting your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you provide to us. All third parties that obtain personal information from us (e.g. service providers or sub-contractors that perform functions on our behalf) are contractually required to protect your confidentiality and personal information in a manner consistent with this policy, and/or as required by law.

Transmissions Between Your Web Browser and Our Servers

We use Secured Socket Layer (“SSL”) software in order to encrypt the personal information that you provide to us while it is in transit over the internet. This will work if your browser is SSL enabled (which most are). You can verify that this is working by looking for the symbol of a closed lock or solid key on the bottom bar of your browser window, and checking that the prefix for the web address in the browser address bar has changed from “http” to “https”.

Storage of Your Personal Information

The personal information we collect from you online is stored by us on databases protected through a combination of physical and electronic access controls, encryption, firewall technology and other reasonable security measures.

How Long Do We Keep Your Personal Information For?

We keep your personal information for so long as is reasonably necessary for the purposes for which we use it, and if longer, for any duration required by law, and for statutory claims limitation periods where your personal information may be relevant to any possible liability we may have to you.

Your Security Measures

For your own privacy protection, we encourage you to maintain anti-virus and other malware protection software on your computers and other devices, and to maintain your own measures to protect your personal information. Please do not include sensitive personal information in any e-mails you may send to us, including payment card information. We also encourage you to be careful about who you give personal information to. We will never contact you to ask you for sensitive personal information, such as payment card information, or sensitive personal information such as passport numbers or sign-on details, and we will only ask you for such information in person or through our website, or by telephone in connection with a reservations you are making or have made.
