GU Comics makes every effort to safeguard the privacy of our users. And only collects information on an opt-in
basis. That is to say, we collect information about our users only after they have been informaed as to what
information we are collecting, how that information will be used, and they have agreed to submit the information
we request. GU then only uses this information in the manner prescribed by the opt-in message. Where we do make
apply once you've followed a link away from our websites.
Cookies are set by the GU forums and opt-in portions of the main GU website for the purposes of determining your
login status and/or uphold preferences you've set that alter how you view the site. Methods for deleting GU set
cookies are typically clearly defined on a page linked from the area where the cookie was set. The only exception
are those cases where cookies are used in conjunction with voting or contest entries to help limit multiple
submissions from the same user.
In those cases where items, rewards, prizes, etc. are given away via the GU site, GU often requires an active
email address be submitted so that "winners" can be informed that they have indeed won. Personal emails are not
stored on the GU site in any form accessible by outside sources. And are not redistributed for any reason. When
a winner is notified only then are they asked to provide a valid street address where their prizes can be sent.
GU avoids direct access to this information when/where ever possible, preferring instead to let the company,
distributor, third party collect the data. In these cases GU has no control over the third party's privacy
The GU main site collects IP addresses on those occassions where the information is pertinent to limiting
multiple submission to surveys, giveaways, etc. or is required to help create a unique identity for users
that are participating in GU controlled auctions and the like. This information is not stored in any manner
accessible by outside sources and is not given out for any reason.
Information Collected From Minors
GU and its affiliated sites are considered to be PG-13. And special care is taken to protect those individuals
indicating that they are younger than 13 years of age. In most cases users stating that they are not 13 or older
are excluded from participating.
Third Party Access to Personal Information
We only provide personal information to third parties in those cases where we specifically inform users as to
how their personal information will be distributed and for what reasons. To date, GU has only given personal
information to third parties for the purposes of delivering the winnings/purchases for giveaways and/or
merchandise sells. GU does not store this information by any means that are accessible by third party sources
not specifically associated with the sell/giveaway. GU can not control the practices of any company not
directly controlled by GU.
