How we Protect your Personal Information
We take guarding your personal information and data very seriously. As such, we use a variety of safeguarding techniques and devices to do so. To help us guard your information, we use a number of administrative, physical, technological, and procedural safeguards to protect you and your confidentiality. We use commercially reasonable and acceptable methods to protect all data and personal information we collect. This being said, it is the unfortunate reality of this digital age that no matter the depth of security measures, these measures are seldom completely foolproof and infallible. Though we strive to provide you, and all of our consumers, with the utmost protection on our Sites, we do not guarantee the absolute security of any personal information or data, we provide the security and our policies as-is, we disclaim any and all warranties, duties, or conditions, and therefore you use our Sites at your own risk. Under this statement, if applicable law imposes any non-disclaimable duty on us, you hereby agree that the standard use and measure of our compliance shall be intentional misconduct.
Your Responsibility for your Personal Information
While GloFX takes commercially reasonable precautions and measures to protect your personal information, it is important that you also take these precautions. You are in charge of the security use of any password or related information for a Channel or Site and you also control the access device you are using (some of which can be unsecure). Please be sure to be aware and cautious at all times you are online in order to safeguard your own personal information and data.
Phishing is a sort of online attack that attempts to steal a consumers’ personal information, data, and financial information. “Phishers use false emails to take consumers to counterfeit websites specifically designed to target recipients and mislead them into giving personal information and data such as credit card numbers, account usernames, passwords, and social security numbers.
GloFX does not, and never has, sent emails asking anyone to provide or confirm any such information, especially bank card numbers, social security numbers, or usernames and passwords.
If you are ever the recipient of such an email which purports to be from GloFX, please immediately forward it to Admin@glofx.com with the subject “Privacy”, then proceed to delete the fraudulent email from all devices.
If you post text, pictures, or other content via public forums that may be available on the Sites, that information may be publicly available. The information may be searchable by search engines and copied or republished by third parties. We have no control over those third parties. Please exercise caution before posting on our Sites as anything you post is at your own risk.

Note that even if you opt-out or do not opt-in, you will still receive other forms of communications from us, such as transactional and confirmation emails and messages related to your orders, questions, or general updates on products or services about your purchases and information about your account.

Options Offered By Third Parties
- Some Third Party browsers, devices, distribution platforms, or other applications may provide help for you to refuse to accept their cookies and technologies or allow you to create your own privacy settings. These technologies may or may not be successful, however, and you should continue to act with caution even when using these technologies.
- In the case of browsers, not all technologies are controlled by the browser and unique or specific aspects of your browser and device may not be recognizable even if you were to disable a technology, not all setting will necessarily be implemented as desired, and in some cases if a setting is honored for one purpose this technology may still collect data for another purpose.
- There are additional control tools on your devices. A great example of your control over your device is that you can turn of the GPS locator or other notifications on your phone.
- For all of these options, opting-out is not applicable to the personal information and data that was disclosed before the opt out choice was offered or to disclosures to which opting-out is not allowed by law, or the privacy and terms and conditions of any of these websites and third parties, or any other arrangements you may have with these parties.
- If you opt-out of an option and then proceed in a manner that is contradictory to this opt-out than it will be assumed that you have changed your mind and the party may once again rely on all previous consents and any consents relating to new actions.
- The Opt-Out tools discussed above are Cookie-Based. This means that the tools use and rely on cookies to document your choices in regards to the use of your information by the parties that do offer you these choices. If you make any changes or delete tracking technologies in your Web Browser after opting out, you might have to opt out again to reset your opt-out preferences.
- All Opt-Outs are “browser-specific.” The opt-out preferences that you choose will only apply to the Web Browser that you used when you selected these options. This means that if you opt-out while using Google Chrome, these preferences will not carry over or be applicable to the use of information and data collected by tracking technologies when you use other browsers, such as Safari. This also means that opting out is not transferable from one device to another, which means that if you opt-out of something in your phone settings, you will have to separately choose the same opt-outs on your computer or other devices.
