General Policy

GAIA Unlimited Website (hereafter referred to as 'GAIA') respects the privacy concerns of the visitors to this Website. As a general policy, no personal information is automatically collected from users of the site. In the event, that, we do collect any personally identifiable data about you when visiting this site, that information is only collected on a voluntary basis, and it is only known and/or passed to us or other select parties as follows (and any of these parties to whom we provide your information will treat it in the same manner as us as set out in this Privacy Policy):

(a) to affiliated companies or subsidiaries owned or controlled by us, if any.
(b) to our employees and agents to administer any accounts, products and services provided to you by us now or in the future.
(c) agents who (on our behalf) profile your data so, that, we may tailor the goods and services we offer to your specific needs.
(d) to the relevant artist and/or their management and/or agent and/or other representative.
(e) to other organisations for the administration of prize draws or competitions.
(f) to anyone to whom we transfer or may transfer our rights and duties under our agreement with you and/or our successors in title to our business.
(g) carefully selected third parties the products or services of which we think may be of interest to you.
(h) if we have a duty to do so or if the law allows us to so.

Personally identifiable information may be collected by us if and when you voluntarily provide this information (including, if and when you fill in contest entry forms, subscribe to newsletters/artist information bulletins or participate in other types of promotions). All such personal information is retained by us and is not otherwise transferred outside GAIA (other than as stated above) unless we obtain your express consent to do so or if we are required by law or by court/governmental order to disclose such information in a particular circumstance. We use the information you provide for assessment and analysis (e.g. customer, promotional and market analysis) to enable us to review, develop and improve the services which we offer and also to monitor customer traffic patterns and site usage to help us enhance your enjoyment during the on-line experience.

Where a service, promotion and/or contest is co-sponsored and or provided together with a third party, any information collected pursuant to such service, promotion and/or contest may be shared with the co-sponsor or third party. You will be able to choose not to allow your information to be shared with the co-sponsor or third party by not using or signing up for that particular service, promotion and/or contest.

We may use the information we collect to occasionally notify you by email, telephone (including automated calls, SMS text messages and other electronic messages such as picture messaging) and post about important functionality changes to the Website, new products and services (including newsletter, bulletins, offers, competitions and so on) which we think you'll find valuable. You will be given the opportunity to opt-in to or opt-out of receiving such marketing information at the point when your details are collected. From time to time we may, also, contact you regarding the products and/or services of other companies and organisations which we consider may be of interest to you. 
You can change your options in relation to the information you wish to receive by sending an email to mothership[at]gaiaunlimited.co.uk. All promotional information from us will come with instructions on how to opt-out from receiving such information.

Your personal data, in aggregate, non-personally-identifying form, may be provided to other carefully selected third parties for marketing, advertising or other uses.

Certain non-personal information about visitors (for example, the type of browser being used by the visitor, the type of operating system in use by the visitor and the domain name of the visitor's Internet service provider) is recorded by the standard operation of our Internet servers. This information is primarily used for internal purposes, and only in an aggregate and non-personally-identifying form. However, we do sometimes provide this information, in aggregate and non-personally identifying form, to other carefully selected parties for marketing, advertising or other uses.
