Gauge has implemented generally accepted physical, technical and organizational security measures to protect against the loss, misuse, disclosure, alteration or destruction of the Personal Information we gather, including storage in a controlled, secure environment protected from unauthorized access. However, no electronic data transmission can be guaranteed to be completely secure. Though we utilize such measures, we cannot guarantee against the loss, misuse, or alteration of your Personal Information. Gauge cannot guarantee that unauthorized individuals will not obtain access to your Personal Information, and you provide us your Personal Information at your own risk.
Though Gauge gathers and retains Personal Information as described above, you may opt out of receiving marketing emails from us by either following the opt-out instructions in those emails or by sending an opt-out request via email to: email@example.com.

Gauge will try to comply with your request(s) as soon as reasonably practicable. Please note that if you opt-out of receiving marketing-related communications from us, we may still send messages to you pursuant to an existing business relationship which we may have with you.
INDIVIDUALS LOCATED IN THE EEA
If you are located in the European Economic Area (“EEA”), and you are sending us your Personal Information, you acknowledge and understand that it will be stored in the United States.
