Information collected by Giant on this website
In general, you may visit this website without telling Giant who you are or revealing personally identifiable information. Any personally identifiable information you choose to submit via this website (including, but not limited to, name, address, telephone number, email address, zip code, transaction information, credit card information, date of birth, and demographic information) is done on a voluntarily basis and used only for the specific purpose for which it was submitted, unless you consent otherwise or as required by law. You have the option to provide what type and the amount of information you supply. To engage in certain activities and access particular features of this website, Giant may request the disclosure of mandatory or voluntary personal information, as indicated on this website, and in some cases, if you do not provide the required mandatory personal information, you will not be able to engage in that activity or access those features on this website. We may collect personally identifiable information when you: (i) place an order from this website; (ii) return an item or make an exchange; (iii) inquire about our products and services; (iv) subscribe to our mailing list and/or newsletter; (v) participate in a marketing survey, promotion or event; (vi) participate in interactive areas of this website and choose to provide certain information about yourself which may be displayed publicly on this website, such as text, photos, stories, product reviews and other information; or (vii) publish content and other information through your social media accounts (e.g., Twitter™, Instagram™, Pinterest™, FaceBook™), such as your name, social media handle, accompanying text and any images, all of which you allow Giant to feature on this website.
When users request pages from our server, this website server automatically captures some information about the users, including their IP addresses, domain names and network identifiers of our users. Giant uses visitors’ IP addresses to send the requested pages to users, to help diagnose problems with our server, to administer this website, and to gather broad demographic information about our users in general; however, this information does not contain anything that can identify users personally. We may combine demographic information supplied by a subscriber at registration with website usage data to provide profiles, in aggregate form, about our users and their preferences in this website consent and advertising, and to measure the number of visits and average time spent on this website and pages viewed. Giant may engage the software or services of a third party to help us process this information, in which case we will share such information with a third party solely for these purposes.
Use of Information
The personal information you share allows Giant to personalize and continually improve your experience on this website. We collect personal information to: (i) provide information regarding the products and services you request and those of our partners that we think may be of an interest to you; (ii) process, track and deliver your order (and send you related order information, including but not limited to order confirmations, invoices, updates, recall notices and support and administrative messages); (iii) process credit card payments; (iv) send you promotional offers; (v) distribute our newsletter; (vi) improve our product selection and customer service; (vii) identify your product preferences and customize your shopping experience; and (viii) communicate with you.
Using email and mailing addresses provided when subscribing to this website or otherwise, Giant may periodically send out email and mail to our subscribers about services and products offered by Giant and our partners. Third parties will not separately contact our subscribers through the use of our email and mailing lists except through messages from our partners embedded within the email and/or mail themselves, or unless users ask to be placed on a list to receive email and/or mail from our partners on subjects of interest.
Giant employs other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf, such as fulfilling orders, shipping and delivering packages, name and address verification, email distribution, market research, promotions management, payment processing, analyzing data, and providing customer service. To ensure that your privacy is respected and protected, we provide these companies and individuals with only the information they need to perform their services. With respect to any e-commerce transaction you submit on this website, Giant may also share information needed to fulfill your order with local authorized retailers in our dealership network. These companies are prohibited from using this information for their own marketing purposes or from sharing this information with anyone other than Giant.
Giant may disclose specific information we believe is appropriate to comply with applicable law, or a reasonable request based upon governmental regulation, court order, subpoena, or similar related action. This includes sharing information with companies assisting in fraud protection or investigation, or credit risk reduction. Giant will not provide information to these agencies or companies for their own marketing or commercial purposes. Upon request, Giant will remove users (and their information) from our database or permit them to “opt-out” of any further email or contact.
Protecting your information
Giant implements a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personally identifiable information when you place an order. Giant offers the use of a secure server. All supplied sensitive/credit information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our payment gateway providers database only to be accessible by those authorized with special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential.
After a transaction, your private information (credit cards, social security numbers, financials, etc.) will not be stored on our servers. Giant will take reasonably appropriate measures to protect your information from loss, misuse, alteration or destruction, and will request that any third parties to whom we may transfer your personal information take comparable steps to protect that security. As email is not a secure form of communication, you should never submit your credit card number, social security number or other personal information via email. Giant shall not have any liability for disclosure of any user information obtained due to errors in transmission or the unauthorized acts of third parties.
