IP Address. An IP (Internet Protocol) address is a number that is automatically assigned to any device that connects to the internet by your internet service provider when you log on. Your IP address is not linked to your Personal Data but Gaw USA does reserve the right to use IP addresses to identify individuals who threaten the Site or other users or visitors. IP addresses may also be used to help diagnose problems with the Site and to gather broad anonymized demographic information about users of its Website.

This aggregate tracking information is used to help Gaw USA improve and enhance the website experience for all of its visitors. The information we collect in this manner is usually anonymized, and we will not identify you from this data, subject to a need to do so to protect the Site and/or other users. We will carry out such processing on the basis that it is necessary for our or such other users’ legitimate interests.

In any event, if the nature of the Personal Data Gaw USA collects changes, we will only collect, use and/or disclose such Personal Data where we have a lawful basis to do so, such as to pursue our legitimate interests or with your express consent.
