Information Collection

GPJ collects personal information such as names, addresses, email addresses, and other contact information from authors who submit articles or register to receive notifications or updates about the journal. This information is used to verify the authorship of submissions and to communicate with authors about their submissions and other journal-related matters.

Data Storage and Security

GPJ stores author information on secure servers located in secure facilities with limited access. GPJ makes sure that access to these servers is restricted to authorized personnel only and  it takes appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure, or destruction of data. However, no system can be 100% secure and we cannot guarantee the absolute security of author information.

Use of Information

GPJ uses author information only for the purpose of carrying out its business as a scholarly journal, including verifying authorship, communicating with authors, and managing the review and publication process. GPJ does not sell, rent, or otherwise provide author information to third parties for marketing or any other purposes.
