Privacy Policy | The Garage Group


Privacy Policy

This privacy policy (“Policy”) sets out how The Garage Group, Inc. (“TGG”) uses and protects the personal information you provide to TGG or on or through the TGG website, (hereinafter, the “Site”).

TGG is committed to protecting your privacy.  Accordingly, any personal information you provide to us when you use this Site shall be used in accordance with the conditions outlined in this Policy. However, this Policy applies only to information collected directly by TGG or by the TGG Site.  This Policy imposes no duties on TGG not imposed by state, federal, or other applicable law.

TGG may change this Policy periodically by updating this Site. You should check this page from time to time to ensure that you continue to agree with the terms of this Policy.

We ask that you read this Policy carefully as it contains important information on who we are, how and why we collect, store, use, and share personal information, your rights in relation to your personal information, and on how to contact us and supervisory authorities in the event you have a complaint.

  1. Who We Are. 

TGG collects, uses, and is responsible for certain personal information about you. When we do so we are regulated under the General Data Protection Regulation which applies across the European Union (including in the United Kingdom) and we are responsible as controller of that personal information for the purposes of those laws.

  1. The Personal Information We Collect and Use.
  1. Consequences of our Use of Your Personal Information.

Where you have provided us User PI (and for individuals located in the E.U., if you have opted in), you will receive our newsletter and email promotions.  You may also receive targeted advertisements from us via Facebook, LinkedIn, and Instagram if we have your User PI.

  1. Transfer of Your Information Out of the EEA (for individuals located in the E.U.).

TGG is based in the United States and that’s where we process personal information.  When you visit our Site and provide User PI, Tech PI, and/or Research PI to us, we request your consent to transfer that personal information to the United States.  The United States does not have an adequacy decision from the European Commission, which means that the Commission has not determined that the laws of the United States provide adequate protection for personal information.  Although United States laws do not provide legal protection that is equivalent to EU data protection laws, we safeguard your personal information by treating it in accordance with this Policy.  We also have appropriate security measures in place to protect your personal information in our possession and when we collect, process, or transfer personal information. We also work with vendors under contracts that require them to treat any personal information they process consistent with this Policy.  We also have procedures in place to deal with any suspected data security breach. We will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected data security breach where we are legally required to do so.

If you would like further information please contact us (see “How to contact us” below).  Except as set forth herein or if we have obtained your explicit consent, we will not transfer your personal information outside of the EEA.

  1. Your Rights (for individuals located in the E.U.).

Under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), you have a number of important rights free of charge. In summary, those include rights to:

For further information on each of those rights, including the circumstances in which they apply, see the Guidance from the UK Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) on individuals’ rights under the GDPR.

If you would like to exercise any of those rights, please:

If you would like to unsubscribe from any email newsletter you can also click on the unsubscribe button at the bottom of an email newsletter. It may take up to 3 days for this to take place.

  1. How to Complain (for individuals located in the E.U.).

We hope that we can resolve any query or concern you raise about our use of your information.  The GDPR also gives you right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the European Union (or European Economic Area) state where you work, normally live, or where any alleged infringement of data protection laws occurred.  Your supervisory authority may be found here.

  1. Our Use of Other Information.
  1. Children’s Privacy.

Protecting the privacy of children is especially important to us. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our Site from those we actually know are under 13, nor do we allow registration of users under the age of 13.  If you are under 13, DO NOT give us any personal information.  If you have reason to believe that a child has provided personal information to TGG without explicit parental consent, contact us at, and we will use commercially reasonable efforts to delete that information from our databases.

  1. Changes to This Policy. 

This Policy was published on May 31, 2019 and last updated on May 31, 2019.  We may change this Policy from time to time, when we do we will inform you via a notice on our Site or by email.
