What Information We Collect
Collection of Contact Information
For customers to avail add referral on our platform, we need references from the customer. For this purpose, while completing the referral form on our App , we collect and monitor your contact information which includes name, phone number, email address and other optional data like relationship and structural address to enable you to auto fill the data during the add referral process. This information is required for the purposes of risk analysis, enabling us to detect credible references, assess your risk profile and to determine your referral eligibility.
We generally collect two types of information—personally identifiable information (“PII”) and non-personally identifiable information (“Non-PII”). PII is any information that can be used to specifically identify you as an individual. For example, you may submit and we may collect your name, email address, address, phone number, or similar information through the Site. Non-PII consists of information that does not specifically identify you. The following sections describe how we collect and use your PII and Non-PII.
Types of Information We Collect
GTR collects two kinds of information about users: (a) information that you provide which personally identifies you; and (b) information that does not personally identify you which we automatically collect when you visit our website or mobile app.
- Non-Personal Information: This refers to information that does not by itself identify a specific individual. We gather certain information about you based upon where you visit on our Site and what other sites may have directed you to us. This information, which is collected in a variety of different ways, is compiled and analyzed on both a personal and an aggregated basis. This information may include the Website’s Uniform Resource Locator (“URL”) that points to the site you just came from, which URL you go to after visiting our Site, what browser you are using, and other non-identifiable information.
How We Collect Your Information
Cookies and Beacons
Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can configure your browser to stop accepting new cookies, to notify you when you a new cookie is received, and to disable existing cookies. If you choose to disable cookies in your browser, however, you may be unable to take full advantage of all the Site’s features.
We do not collect any PII unless you voluntarily provide it to us. However, you may be required to provide certain PII to us when you elect to use the GTR website or mobile app.
When you are using the Site, we automatically gather basic information from your browser, such as IP address, browser type, ISP, OS, and date/time stamps to analyze trends, administer the site, analyze bugs, and gather broad demographic information. We will not share log files externally.

In certain instances we may also share your PII with our third party vendors performing functions on our behalf and other companies who provide us marketing or promotional assistance, analyze our data, assist us with customer service, etc. Our vendors agree to use this information, and we share information with them, only to carry out our requests.
Third Party Contractors and Other Uses
We may use third party suppliers and service providers to facilitate our services, and they may have access to your PII. For example, we may outsource one or more aspects of our Site to a supplier or service provider who performs services according to our requirements. Although we endeavor to select only reputable companies who share our commitment to privacy and will restrict how these suppliers or service providers may use or disclose the PII to which they have access, we are in no way responsible for such third parties or their activities. Therefore, you agree to allow us to give your information to third party suppliers and service providers in order for us to provide service to you. For purposes of transparency, the following is a non-exhaustive list of other entities that we may store, share, or transfer your information with:
- Constant Contact
Due to factors beyond our control, we cannot fully ensure that your information will not be disclosed to third parties. For example, third parties may circumvent our security measures to unlawfully intercept or access your information.
Search Engines and Web Crawlers
Certain PII that you provide through the registration process (such as name, location, and profile image) may be accessible and made public through syndication programs, search engines, crawlers, and other similar programs.
We will send you solicitations and mailings only if you have previously indicated that you wish to receive them. If you do not wish to receive solicitations from us, you can “opt-out” by accessing your account online and editing your account information to no longer receive such mailings.
Transfer of Assets
GTR may sell or purchase assets. Collected information is an asset. If another entity acquires GTR or all (or substantially all) of our assets, the personally identifiable information and non-personal information we have about you will be transferred to and may be used by this acquiring entity.
Use in Legal Proceedings
Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, we reserve the right to disclose any personally identifiable information or non-personal information about you if we are required to do so by law, with respect to copyright or other intellectual property infringement claims, or if we believe that such action is necessary to: (a) fulfill a government request; (b) conform with the requirements of the law or legal process; (c) protect or defend our legal rights or property, our website, mobile app, or other users; or (d) in an emergency to protect the health and safety of our website or mobile app users or the general public.
