Together with the Terms of Use and General Provisions, such constitutes the Agreement between Georama and the User. Before proceeding to access the Website and/or use any Services, a User must ensure that all provisions are read, understood, and agreed.

Georama Policy and Other Parties

This Privacy Policy solely regards Georama and its practices. Georama does not control and cannot describe and/or guarantee to privacy policies of other parties, including Providers and companies which may be accessed through the Website. Caution should be exercised by a User when considering providing any private information, especially when the User has left the Website.

Georama has a policy of protecting the privacy of children. The Website and the general practices of Georama are not intended or designed to attract children under the age of 13. Georama does not collect personally identifiable information from any person we actually know is a child under the age of 13.

Our primary goals in collecting information are to provide and improve our Services, to administer your use of the Services (including your account, if you are an account holder), and to enable you to enjoy and easily navigate our Services.

Although rare, Georama may be required to disclose a User’s information when required by law. In such instances, it shall reasonably endeavor to contact the subject User of a pending demand for information before compliance. In no event shall Georama be liable for any consequences of its good-faith compliance in response to any written demand by or through a judicial or governmental agency authority. Should a User initiate proceedings to contest a demand, then the User shall be responsible for the attorneys’ fees and costs incurred by Georama in such proceeding. In the event that Georama is compelled to make the disclosure before a User can be advised, then Georama shall provide notice thereof as soon as possible thereafter. Notice shall be sufficient by dispatch to the User’s email address of record.
