The technology used by Group C Media, Inc. and its web properties is not intended to collect personally identifiable information. In some limited circumstances, however, some personally identifiable may be captured–when, for example, personal information such as an email address is incorporated into a URL string. Group C Media, Inc. does NOT use personally identifiable information inadvertently captured in this manner, nor will we ever share any of this personally identifiable information with our clients.
