What We Do
Agio Press Inc. operates online news properties like GlobalAtlanta.com, an unrivaled source of information about international business, education and culture in Atlanta and the state of Georgia. In short, we keep readers informed about how our city and state are connected with the global economy.
As an online publisher, Global Atlanta’s business operations sometimes require us to collect data or to interact with online services (ad-serving platforms, email marketing software, WordPress plugins) that may make use of data from our readers’ browsing habits.
We value our readers’ privacy and have updated our policies as of May 25, 2018 in order to comply with the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation.
Below, we outline how and when your personal data may be collected, why we need it, what we do with it and how you can let us know if you want it deleted.
How and When We Collect Your Information
Personal information is information about you that is personally identifiable like your name, address, email address, or phone number, that is not otherwise publicly available.
Global Atlanta collects personal information only by consent, and we use it to better inform you, either via online news articles and emails or through in-person events. We’ll only store it as long as we need it to continue delivering your content.
We collect your information via forms hosted on our website when you…
- Opt in to receive Global Atlanta email newsletters via our signup form operated by MailChimp, our marketing automation service provider, or by clicking YES when asked if you’d like to receive emails when registering for an event. You can always opt out by clicking Unsubscribe at the bottom of any Global Atlanta email or by sending an email to email@example.com.
- Register through our website to attend an event Global Atlanta hosts or helps organize
- Submit content like an event listing, commentary article or job posting to be published on our website.
We will never sell your data, and we will never share your email address or any other personal information with a third party without your express consent.
For event registration, we generally require your name and email only, but we may ask for additional details like your physical address, company name and industry sector. These can be provided at your discretion to help us serve you with more targeted content.
Online registration is not required to read GlobalAtlanta.com, but we reserve the right in the future to require readers to create an account to access portions of our website, which would require submission of an email address and creation of a username and password.
“Cookies” are small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive. Global Atlanta or its advertisers may send a cookie to your computer through your browser.
We use the following third-party services that may utilize cookies to determine your browsing behavior while accessing our site:
- Google DoubleClick for Publishers

Global Atlanta sells tickets to in-person events and occasional digital products like special reports or e-books. We may need to collect your credit or debit card information in order to do so and to notify you about the specifics of your order or communicate with you about the event or product.
We operate a secure website and use Stripe, a PCI-compliant payment processor, meaning that we don’t retain any credit card numbers after they are entered into forms on our website. Your financial information is never stored on our servers, nor will it be offered or sold to third parties. We reserve the right to cancel any order at our discretion.
By consenting to this privacy notice, you are giving us your permission to process your personal data for the purposes identified.
You may withdraw your consent at any time by opting out of emails or by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling our offices at +1 404.377.7710.
