Children Under the Age of 13
The Website is not intended for children under 13 years of age. No one under age 13 may provide any personal information to or on the Website. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. If you are under 13, do not use or provide any information on the Website or on or through any of its features, make any purchases through the Website, or provide any information about yourself, including your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address or any screen name or user name you may use. If G&K Services learns it has collected or received personal information from a child under 13 without verification of parental consent, G&K Services will delete that information. If you believe G&K Services might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact G&K Services using the contact information provide below in this policy.
Links to Other Sites
The Website may contain links to other websites. While G&K Services tries to link only to websites that share our high standards and respect for privacy, we are not responsible for the content, security, or privacy practices employed by other websites.
Security of Collected Information
We maintain commercially reasonable physical, electronic, and administrative safeguards to protect your personal information from unauthorized or inappropriate access. Despite these efforts, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted to the Website. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Website. Personal information may only be accessed by persons within our organization, or our third party service providers, who require such access to carry out the purposes identified to you. Personal information we collect is maintained with the source of the information at our corporate headquarters in Minnetonka, Minnesota.
By providing the information requested by the Website or by otherwise providing the Website with your personal information, or by continuing to use the Website after having an opportunity to review this policy, you have consented to the terms of this policy, and G&K Services’ collection, use and disclosure of the information it collects as described at the point of collection or in this policy. If you do not agree to this policy, you may choose not to use the Website.
Accessing and Correcting Collected Information
You may review and update the information that you provide to us through the Website by contacting us as described below. If you believe that an error has been made in the accuracy of the data collected from you, you may request that the information be corrected by contacting us. We will correct the error upon adequate verification of the error and the identity of the person seeking the correction. However, we may not accommodate a request to change information if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect. In order to protect your privacy and security, we may need to take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections.
When you request access to your personal information, we will use reasonable efforts to comply with your request; however, in some cases we may not be able to allow you to access certain personal information in certain circumstances, for example if it contains personal information of other persons, or for legal reasons. In such cases we will provide you with a reasonable explanation of why it is not possible to grant access to your personal information.

Changes to this Policy / Opt-Out
In general, you can visit the Website without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. G&K Services does, however, collect certain non-personal information about users of the Website through a variety of means:
The Website gathers certain information about users automatically and stores it in log files. This information includes IP addresses, browser types, Internet service provider, referring/exit webpages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. This data is not shared with anyone other than G&K Services employees, affiliates and contractors who assist G&K Services and who are bound to confidentiality.
In addition, there are portions of the Website where we may need to collect personal information from you for a specific purpose, such as to provide you with requested information or to process and fulfill an order for merchandise. The information collected from you may include items such as your name, address, telephone, fax number, or e-mail address, or other personal information that you choose to provide to us.
Use of Collected Information
Non-personal information that we collect is not generally used to personally identify you and instead is aggregated to measure such things as the number of visits, average time spent on the Website, pages viewed, etc. We use this information to measure the use of the Website and to improve content. We may use or disclose such aggregated information about our users, and information that does not identify any individual, without restriction.
When personal information is collected from you, such as your name and e-mail address, we generally let you know at the time of collection how we will use the personal information, such as in the Careers section of the Website or in merchandise orders placed through GKdirect® or when you agree to receive commercial electronic messages from us. Usually, we use the personal information you provide only to respond to your inquiry or to process your request (such as to receive electronic annual reports, to be added to our supplier diversity database or to process your request for employment). This information may be shared with other G&K Service's businesses, but only if necessary to fulfill your request or for related purposes.
Information obtained from the Careers section of the Website will be used solely for the purpose of accepting and evaluating your submission for possible employment and the related purposes described on these pages.
We will release information about you if you direct us to do so or if permitted or required to do so by applicable law. For example, we may share the personal information you provide with other companies we have hired to provide services for us. These companies - our vendors - are contractually bound to use personal information we share with them only to perform the services we have hired them to provide. We do not share, sell, or lease personal information about you to any third-parties for their marketing use.
Some or all of the personal information we collect on our Canadian websites may be stored or processed on servers located outside of Canada, including in the United States, whose data protection laws may differ from those in Canada. As a result, the personal information may be subject to access requests from governments, courts, law enforcement officials and national security authorities in the United States according to United States laws. Subject to such laws, we will ensure that appropriate protections are in place to maintain protections on the personal information that are equivalent to those that apply in Canada.
