We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to collect information that you voluntarily give us via our online registration form, email or other direct contact from you. govmates will not sell or rent this information to anyone.
govmates uses information we collect to operate, maintain and provide you the features and functionality of the Services, to analyze how the Service is used, diagnose service or technical problems, maintain security, personalize content, remember information to help you efficiently access your account, monitor aggregate metrics such as Services traffic and demographic patterns, and track data and users as necessary to comply with applicable laws.
By signing up, registering, or subscribing with govmates for the use of the Services, we may ask you for personally-identifiable information, which is information about you that can be used to contact or identify you (“Personal Information”), such as: your name, company or organization name, title, e-mail address, postal address, and telephone numbers. If you contact us, we may also keep a record of that correspondence or communication, including any Personal Information it contains.
We may use your Personal Information to provide services to you and to:
- facilitate the creation of and secure your account on our Services;
- provide you with a personalized experience on our Services;
- identify you as a user on our Services;
- respond to your inquiries;
- send you administrative e-mail notifications, such as security, or support and maintenance advisories;
- improve our Services and the quality of experience when you interact with our Services; and
- communicate with you through periodic messages regarding new service features, offerings and services provided by our partners, events, and other information and notices we believe you may find relevant.
govmates may disclose your Personal Information if required to do so by law or subpoena or if we believe that it is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation or legal request; to protect the safety of any person; to address fraud, security or technical issues; or to protect govmates’ rights or property.
We reserve the right to transfer any and all information that we collect from users, including Personal Information, to a third-party in connection with or in the event of any corporate reorganization, merger, sale, joint venture, assignment, transfers, or other disposition of all or any portion of govmates’ business, assets, or stock (including as part of a bankruptcy proceeding).
We may disclose your non-private, aggregated, statistical, and other non-personally identifiable information with third parties for industry analysis, demographic profiling, and other purposes.

If you decide to invite a third party to create an account, we will collect your and the third party’s names and e-mail addresses in order to send an e-mail and follow up with the third party. We rely upon you to obtain whatever consents from the third party that may be required by law to allow us to access and upload the third party’s names and e-mail addresses as required above. You or the third party may contact us at email@example.com to request the removal of this information from our database.
