We also will ask a parent to confirm his/her consent in advance of any collection, use or disclosure of that information.
How Does GlobalConference.com Use Personal Information?

When Does GlobalConference.com Disclose Personal Information?

We will disclose personal information to third parties when we have your consent to do so, such as to complete a transaction you have requested, or as part of the terms and conditions for a particular service.

What is your policy for providing refunds for purchases?
If you use our conference service we will bill your credit card for each minute spent on the line by each caller who calls into the conference. If you request a refund, our policy is to research all refund claims no later than the first full business day following your inquiry.

To Whom Should I Direct Privacy Questions or Concerns?
You have several ways to contact us about questions to this policy and about your services.
Information Collected About You
We collect a variety of personal information about users of our products or services. Personal information is information that can be directly associated with a specific person or entity such as a customer's name, address, telephone number, email address, or information about activities that is directly linked to that person (for example, IP address information).
GlobalConference.com recognizes that parents often sign up for our products and services for family use, including for use by minors. Any information collected from such usage will appear to be the personal information of the actual subscriber to the service, and will be treated as such under this Policy. Furthermore, GlobalConference.com does not knowingly, directly or passively, collect information from children under the age of 13. If we create offers and products that make it appropriate to collect information from children under the age of 13, we will notify you of the change in this Policy. We also will ask a parent to confirm his/her consent in advance of any collection, use or disclosure of that information.
When our customer is a business or other entity purchasing service for employees or other authorized users, this Policy will generally govern the personal information associated with individual employees or authorized users. However, whether the business customer has access to personal information of employees or other authorized users will be governed by the terms of any service agreement. So, employees or other authorized users should check with the business customer regarding its privacy practices.
Our definition of personal information does not include "aggregate" information. Aggregate information is data we collect about a group or category of services or customers from which individual customer identities have been removed. In other words, how you use a service may be collected and combined with information about how others use the same service, but no personal information will be included in the resulting data. Aggregate data helps us understand trends and customer needs so that we can better consider new services or tailor existing services to customer desires. An example of aggregate data is our ability to prepare a report that indicates that a certain number of our customers always use our conferencing services at a certain time of day. The report would not contain any personal information but the aggregate data might be purchased by or shared with a third party.
Here are the types of personal and other information we collect. You should refer to the rest of this Policy to see how we use, disclose and protect that information:
- Information You Give Us: We collect information you give us when you sign up with GlobalConference.com or use our services. For example, you may provide us an email address when signing up for service. You might not have thought about it this way, but the email address you use when browsing to our web site is an example of information you give us and that we collect and use.
- Automatically Collected Information: We automatically receive certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, when you visit the GlobalConference.com Web site, our systems automatically collect your IP address and the type and version of browser you use.
- Information from Other Sources: We may obtain information about you from outside sources and add it to or combine it with our account information. We may use commercially available demographic and marketing information from third parties to help us better serve you or inform you about new products or services that we think will be of interest to you.
Children's Online Privacy Protection Act
GlobalConference.com does not knowingly, directly or passively, collect information from children under the age of 13. If we create offers and products that make it appropriate to collect information from children under the age of 13, we will notify you of the change in this Policy. We also will ask a parent to confirm his/her consent in advance of any collection, use or disclosure of that information. You should be aware, however, that web browsers and conferencing services set up for family use may be used by minors without the knowledge of GlobalConference.com. If that happens, any information collected from the usage will appear to be the personal information of the actual adult subscriber and treated as such under this Policy.
Use of Personal Information
Internal Use. In general, we use personal information to serve our customers, to enhance and extend our customer relationship, and so our customers can take maximum advantage of our products and services. For example, by understanding how you use our Web site from your computer, we are able to customize and personalize your experience. More specifically, we use personal information to provide services or complete transactions you have requested, to anticipate and resolve problems with your services, and to create and inform you of products or services from GlobalConference.com or others that better meet your needs. GlobalConference.com may use email to inform you about new products or services we think will interest you.
Third Party Use. You should review the following section to understand when GlobalConference.com discloses personal information to third parties.
Disclosure of Personal Information
Information about our customers is one of our most important business assets, and therefore we strive to protect it and keep it confidential. We do not sell personal information to third parties without your consent. When and what types of information GlobalConference.com discloses depends on the teleconferencing services and in some cases the choices you have made. We disclose personal information as follows: Your Consent. GlobalConference.com will not disclose personal information other than in accordance with this Policy. In general, that means that you must consent to the disclosure in advance. Depending on the service, we may obtain your consent in a number of ways, including:
- In writing;
- Online by clicking a button;
- At the time of service initiation when your consent is part of the required terms and conditions to use the service.
For example, your consent to disclose personal information can be implied simply by the nature of your request, such as when you ask us to deliver an email to another person. Your return address is disclosed as part of the service and your consent to do so implied by your use of the service. To determine how personal information may be disclosed as part of a particular service, you should review the terms and conditions of use for that service.
We may share personal information with third parties as necessary to complete a transaction, perform a service on our behalf or that you have requested or to enhance our ability to serve you better. When the third party acts solely on our behalf, GlobalConference.com will require them to follow our privacy practices.
Business Transfers: Information about our customers, including personal information, will be disclosed as part of any merger, sale of the company assets or acquisition as well as in the unlikely event of an insolvency, bankruptcy or receivership in which personal information would be transferred as one of the business assets of the company.
Protection of GlobalConference.com and Others: We release personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law (e.g., a lawful subpoena, E911 information); to enforce or apply our customer agreements; to initiate, render, bill, and collect for services; to protect our rights or property, or to protect users of those services and other carriers from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful use of, or subscription to, such services.
