Information we collect
We collect information to provide better services to all of our users. We collect information in the following ways:

When you get your account assigned, we’ll ask for personal information, like your name, email address, and contact information to store with your account; this information can also be taken from your subscription to a particular event that is related to GProCommission. If you want to take full advantage of the sharing features we offer, we might also ask you to maintain a publicly visible GProCommission Profile, which may include your name and photo and other information.
- Information we get from your use of our services. We collect information about the services that you use and how you use them, like making comments to articles, sharing information, rating documents, sharing files, videos, events, pictures, etc.. This information includes:

We use the information we collect from our service to provide, maintain, protect and improve the service, and to protect GProCommission and our users.

Transparency and choice
People have different privacy concerns. Our goal is to be clear about what information we collect, so that you can make meaningful choices about how it is used. For example, you can:
- Review and update your GProCommission activity controls to decide what types of data you would like saved with your account when you use GProCommission services. You can also visit these controls to manage whether certain activity is stored in a cookie or similar technology on your device when you use our services while signed-out of your account.
- Review and control certain types of information tied to your GProCommission Account by using GProCommission Dashboard.
- Adjust how the Profile associated with your GProCommission Account appears to others.
- Control who you share information with through your GProCommission Account.
- Take information associated with your GProCommission Account out of many of our services.
You may also set your browser to block all cookies, including cookies associated with our services, or to indicate when a cookie is being set by us. However, it’s important to remember that many of our services may not function properly if your cookies are disabled. For example, we may not remember your language preferences.
Information you share
Our service let you share information with others. Our services provide you with different options on sharing and removing your content.
Accessing and updating your personal information
Whenever you use our service, we aim to provide you with access to your personal information. If that information is wrong, we strive to give you ways to update it quickly or to delete it – unless we have to keep that information for legitimate business or legal purposes. When updating your personal information, we may ask you to verify your identity before we can act on your request.
We may reject requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort (for example, developing a new system or fundamentally changing an existing practice), risk the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup systems).
Where we can provide information access and correction, we will do so for free, except where it would require a disproportionate effort. We aim to maintain our services in a manner that protects information from accidental or malicious destruction. Because of this, after you delete information from our services, we may not immediately delete residual copies from our active servers and may not remove information from our backup systems.
Information we share
We do not share personal information with companies, organizations and individuals outside of GProCommission unless one of the following circumstances applies:
- With your consent
We will share personal information with ministries, organizations or individuals outside of GProCommission when we have your consent to do so. We require opt-in consent for the sharing of any sensitive personal information.
- For legal reasons
We will share personal information with companies, organizations or individuals outside of GProCommission if we have a good-faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of the information is reasonably necessary to:
- meet any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request.
- enforce applicable Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations.
- detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues.
- protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of GProCommission, our users or the public as required or permitted by law.
We work hard to protect GProCommission and our users from unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of information we hold. In particular:
- We encrypt many of our services using SSL.
- We offer you verification when you access your GProCommission Account.
- We review our information collection, storage and processing practices, including physical security measures, to guard against unauthorized access to systems.
- We restrict access to personal information to GProCommission employees, contractors and agents who need to know that information in order to process it for us, and who are subject to strict contractual confidentiality obligations and may be disciplined or terminated if they fail to meet these obligations.
