Privacy Policy

This site is owned and operated by Global Retail Marketing Association (“GRMA”).

Your privacy is of utmost importance. It is our goal to make your online experience positive and safe. Because we gather certain types of information about our users, we want to disclose what information we gather and how we use it.

Information Gathered

1. Collection and Use of Personal Identifying Information
We will only collect and use personal information such as first and last name, address, telephone number, email address, profile biography, photo and company information when a user voluntarily provides it to us. This information is necessary on some portions of our website and virtual community, such as setting up a profile to register as a member or to contact us by email. Such disclosure is strictly voluntary.

Personal identifying information we collect will be used for limited internal purposes that may include, but are not limited to, processing your registrations, membership directory, virtual community, receiving literature or samples, or sending comments to GRMA.

2. Collection and Use of Non-Personal Identifying Information
We collect and use non-personal identifying information, including IP addresses and web-server files to track user traffic patterns throughout our site. However, we do not correlate this data with information about our individual users. GRMA does break down overall usage according to a user’s domain, allowing us to better tailor our content to our customer’s needs.


We may place a text file called a “cookie” in the browser files of your computer. The cookie itself does not contain personal information; however, it will enable us to track and target the interests of our users allowing us to enhance your website experience. The only personal information a cookie can contain is the information you supply yourself. A cookie cannot read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created from other web sites.

You can refuse cookies by turning them off in your browser; however, this may prevent you from accessing certain portions of our website.
