Such information may include details as may be necessary for GVA to register, renew or cancel the Service or Information Request made by the Person (including Primary name, address, email address, telephone number and birth date etc). We may request other non public but personally identifiable information from a customer when the individual uses our services or products (referred to collectively in this Privacy Policy as the “Service”).

We may also receive personally identifiable information from the company in which the customer is employed (or the organization to which the customer applied for employment), a college (or university) that the customer attends and/or a Third Party Organization that seeks information from us (referred to collectively in this Privacy Policy as the “Entity”), to which Entity the said Person might have provided personally identifiable information and which uses our Service or Information.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information - Non-personally identifiable information is information that, which by it, cannot be used to identify or contact a Person, such as nationality, profession or gender etc. Non-personally identifiable information may also include user IP addresses, browser types, domain names, name and other particulars of the Entity, and other identifiable or anonymous statistical data involving the use of our Service or Information.

In addition, our Web site tracks information about the visits to our Web site. For example, we compile statistics that show the daily number of visitors to our site, the daily requests we receive for particular files on our Web site, and from which countries those requests come. These aggregated statistics are used internally to better provide services to the public and may also be provided to others, but again, the statistics contain no personal information and cannot be used to gather such information.

To effectively process your order or service request, GVA needs to know some standard and specific information, such as your name, your family member’s names, e-mail address, mailing address, credit card number, tax identification numbers and telephone number. For the purposes of preparing and filing your or your business tax return, we need to know the registration details, officer information, residential status, money spent towards certain expenses and investments, retirement plans contributions, spouse and dependent information etc. For the purpose of forming your business, non profit, corporation or limited liability company (LLC), trust, estate etc we need to know the following information: the name you want your business entity to have, a brief description of the purpose of your business, the name and address of the corporation or registered agent, the name and address of the directors and officers of your corporation or members or managers for an LLC, how many shares of stock your corporation will be authorized to issue and the par value of such stock etc.

It is our policy that the information you provide is kept private and confidential. All order information is encrypted with secure server software to protect it from unauthorized access.

Additionally, we do not sell, rent or trade your personally identifiable information.

Laws and Legal Rights - We may also disclose information (including personally identifiable information) if we believe in good faith that we are required to do so in order to comply with an applicable statute, regulation, rule or law, a subpoena, a search warrant, a court or regulatory order, or other valid legal process. We may disclose personally identifiable information in special circumstances when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be violating the Terms and Conditions of our Services, or to protect the safety and/or security of GVA, our users, or the general public.

Third Parties Generally - We reserve the right to provide to third parties information that does not allow any person to be identified or contacted, including where such information is combined with similar information of other users of the Service or Information. For example, we might inform third parties regarding the number of unique users who seek our service or information and the information breakdown of registered users of our service or information. The third parties to which we may provide this information may include potential or actual commercial partners, sponsors, licensees, researchers and other similar parties.

We will not sell, share, license, trade or rent personally identifiable information other than as specified in this Privacy Policy.

If we decide to change this Privacy Policy, we will post those changes on the Service so they are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. If at any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner significantly different from that stated in this Privacy Policy, or otherwise disclosed, at the time it was collected, we will notify the customer by email, and the customer will have a choice as to whether or not use personally identifiable information in the new manner. We may also make non-significant changes to this Privacy Policy that generally will not affect our use of personally identifiable information.

Consent to Disclose information per Rev. Proc. 2008-35, Treasury Regulation §301.7216-3(a) – Federal law requires this consent form be provided to you. Unless authorized, we cannot disclose, without your consent, your tax return information to third parties for purposes other than the preparation and filing of your tax return and, in certain limited circumstances, for purposes involving tax return preparation. If you consent to the disclosure of your tax return information, Federal law may not protect your tax return information from further use or distribution. If you believe your tax return information has been disclosed or used improperly in a manner unauthorized by law or without your permission, you may contact the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) by telephone at 1-800-366-4484, or by email at complaints@tigta.treas.gov. This consent to disclose may result in your tax return information being disclosed to a tax return preparer located outside the United States, including your personally identifiable information such as your Social Security Number (“SSN”). Both the tax return preparer in the United States that will disclose your SSN and the tax return preparer located outside the United States which will receive your SSN maintain an adequate data protection safeguard (as required by the regulations under 26 U.S.C. Section 7216) to protect privacy and prevent unauthorized access of tax return information. If you consent to the disclosure of your tax return information, Federal agencies may not be able to enforce U.S. laws that protect the privacy of your tax return information against a tax return preparer located outside of the U.S. to which the information is disclosed. I authorize Global Value Add, Inc. d/b/a Mytaxfiler.com to disclose our TAX RETURN INFORMATION to GVA Business Solutions (P) Ltd, its independent contractor or affiliates  for the purpose of preparation of my tax return.
