Information Collected by this Site
Two types of data are collected: personal data, such as names and e-mail addresses, and non-personal aggregate data such as traffic volume and usage patterns.
Personal data is gathered when users provide personal data to the site, for example, when requesting registration to the Site, registering for contests or promotional opportunities, answering surveys, or registering for email or other services.
Names and other personal information may be released to affiliated (by contract, equity or otherwise) persons and/or entities of GOLD INNOVATIONS. You consent to the release of your personal information to the affiliated persons and/or entities of GOLD INNOVATIONS.
Names and other personal information may also be released to any non-affiliated persons and/or entities directly associated with your instructions, requests, or registration on the Site. By using these services, you consent to the release of your personal information to the respective non-affiliated entity.
The names of contest winners and participants may be used about promotions. Names and other personal information may also be released to the sponsors of contests for the sponsors’ use in connection with the promotion. By entering a contest or promotion, you consent to the release of your personal information to the contest/promotion sponsor.
Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personal information or personally sensitive data through on this Site, this information may be collected and used by others. The Company encourages all users to review the privacy statements of websites you choose to link from GOLD INNOVATIONS so that you understand how those websites collect, use and share information about you and/or your computer. The Company is not responsible for the data collection, data usage, privacy statements or content on other websites.
Aggregate data includes information about user traffic on the Site, such as which pages are being visited, the order in the pages are being visited, which hyperlinks are being ‘clicked’, and how many users are visiting the Site. The Site may also log IP addresses of its users. While logging IP addresses does not collect personal information, it may provide information on the geographical location from which users access the site. This aggregate data is not used to identify individual users. Instead, it is used to identify website users, including demographic information, preferences in content and advertising, maintain quality of service, and web traffic patterns.
This site may place small files, called ‘cookies’ onto your computer. Cookies are data files that websites write onto computer hard drive for record keeping purposes when you visit them. The cookie file then identifies you as a unique user. As a convenience feature, cookies simplify the process of recording personal information, so that, for example, users do not have to enter names, addresses or passwords repetitively. Cookies also allow users to customize some sites features.
You can program your browser not to accept cookies, but if you do, you may be unable to access some parts of the Site, and the Site will not be able to customize features according to your preferences.
Changes to this Statement
Please note that chat rooms, forums, message boards, and/or new groups may be available on this site. Any information disclosed in these areas may become public information and users must exercise caution and discretion when deciding to disclose personal information.
