In order to get the best Gushou experience, we recommend you use a modern browser such as Chrome or Firefox.
WHAT YOU AGREE TO
We request the following data to complete your information profile; your geographic location, email address(es), name(s), and telephone number(s). We also ask for your Facebook user name, but no need to share it if you don’t want to. All of this is specifically to make using our service easier.
Also, knowing your location and other information helps us to improve the service to meet your specific needs over time.
In addition to any locational data you provide, Gushou will store your IP address and use your IP address to determine the city and/or region from which you are accessing Gushou.
Gushou integrates with a few 3rd party websites and services only for the purposes of tracking site performance and/or to enhance the quality of the Gushou service for our users.
WE WILL NOT SELL YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS OR PERSONAL INFO
Gushou will not sell your personal data or your team’s email addresses to any third party.
This means you won’t get spam from some other website or marketer because we wanted to make a little extra cash on the side.
There is one exception to this rule: if another entity buys our business (Paddlecore Inc.) we will transfer this data to them.
The general nature of Gushou means that at some point, a Team Manager is going to invite you to join his/her team. This will be an email invite that comes from the Gushou email servers. In that email we supply a confirmation link, and explanation that Gushou will only email confirmed email addresses. By clicking on the confirmation link, you are granting Gushou permission to email you Gushou Notifications and other messages specifically relevant to Gushou users.
There are some situations where Gushou will email you before you can be confirmed, such as when your Team Manager has explicitly triggered an email. An example of this is Team Emails and Event Invites.
If at any time you wish to stop receiving email from Gushou, you can modify your email settings under your user profile by logging into Gushou and clicking on your name.
NO KIDS ALLOWED (WITHOUT PARENTAL SUPERVISION)
We don’t allow users 13 years or younger to use this site. But don’t despair! We do allow parents or guardians to use the site on their child’s behalf.
Wikipedia has a good explanation of what cookies are and how they work here:
Our web servers keep logs of user activity so that we can watch for bugs and make sure everything is working like it’s supposed to. More information about how web server logs work and what information they record, read more information here:
Gushou shares anonymized tracking data with a small number of Third-Party tracking tools such as Google Analytics. This lets us see how our service is performing, and lets us make changes and improvements to the site which benefit you.
PROTECTING YOUR DATA
Gushou takes appropriate steps to protect the data stored in our systems from hackers, thieves, and pirates, but unfortunately no website is 100% secure and we cannot guarantee the security of your data.
That being said, user data is retained on a secure, encrypted, hosted data store. Furthermore, our staff have agreed to abide by security policies and are subject to discipline for any breach should it occur.
We do not store your user passwords in plain text, and if you ask us we cannot retrieve these for you. If you have lost your password there are automated functions on our site to help you. Which is nice, really.
In the unlikely event that police or a court of law require us to supply them with your personal information, we will only do so in accordance with the specific law of the jurisdictions in which we operate: Specifically, Canada and the USA. These countries have a number of specific regulations to protect you from unlawful invasions of your privacy.
When debugging, troubleshooting, resolving a dispute, or coding Gushou, employees of Gushou can and may look at personal user data. Gushou employees must adhere to strict privacy protection guidelines when viewing personal user data and will never disclose such data to 3rd parties or use it for any purpose outside the scope of the proper maintenance of Gushou.
Should you happen to want to delete your personal data, you are able to do so by deleting your account through our account deletion tool. Once an account is deleted, all your personal data is removed from our servers and cannot be restored.
