Privacy Notice

Protecting your privacy is important to us

Coinsite (“Coinsite.com”) respects your concerns about privacy. This Privacy Notice applies to information we collect through our websites and services, and describes how Coinsite collects, uses and safeguards the personal information you provide to us on our web site and with whom we may share it.

The information we collect includes personal information and non-personal information – these terms are defined below. This Privacy Notice also describes the measures we take to protect the security of your personal information. We also describe how you may reach us to ask questions about our privacy practices.

By using our websites and services you agree to our collection, use, disclosure and transfer of information as described here.

Gathering and Use of Personal Information

Certain visitors to Coinsite’s websites choose to interact with Coinsite in ways that require Coinsite to gather personally-identifying information. Personally-identifying information is data that can be used to uniquely identify or contact a single person. You may choose to provide personal information to us when you use our websites. Because we change our offerings and features from time to time, the options you have to provide us with personal information also may also change.

The personal information we collect from you will vary depending on the service you are using, the site you are visiting, and how you access it. However, the personal information you provide generally may include your name, email address, phone number (which may include mobile phone number), and postal address.

Because we directly ask you to provide personal information in these cases, you often will be able to tell from our specific requests what types of information we will receive from you.

In order to provide you with a particular service, such as an answer to an inquiry made to the Coin Doc, we request that you voluntarily supply us with your e-mail address, which will be used to contact you with an answer. If your question is answered online, or your comments published in our CoinSite Buyers Customer Comments, only your first name, last initial, City & State will appear unless you request otherwise.

We also may collect personally-identifiable information for reasons such as, but not limited to:

  • provide you with access to the site, service or feature you requested
  • communicate with you, respond to your requests, or provide you with updates and information
  • manage your account
  • offer you tailored content, such as ads
  • provide you with technical support or customer service
  • develop, deliver, and improve our products, services, and other offerings
  • better understand our users, their interests and their preferences

Collection and Use of Non-personal Information

We also collect non-personally-identifying information − data in a form that does not permit direct association with any specific individual. We may collect, use, transfer, sell, and disclose non-personal information for any purpose.

If we do combine non-personal information with personal information the combined information will be treated as personal information for as long as it remains combined.

Aggregated data is considered non-personal information for the purposes of this Privacy Notice.

Information Collected by Automated Means

We may obtain certain personal and non-personal information by automated means when you visit our sites. The type of information we collect by automated means may vary, but generally includes technical information such as IP address or other device identifier. The information we collect also may include usage information and statistics about your interaction with our websites, which may include URLs of our web pages that users visited, URLs of referring and exiting pages, page views, time spent on a page, number of clicks, platform type, and other information about how you used our websites.

In cases where you use a mobile device to access our sites we will receive information about the location of your device. In some cases, even if you are not using a mobile device, information about your general location may be discernible from your device’s IP address or the URLs we receive. If you access or use our sites or services with your mobile telephone, we may collect your telephone number.

Note that if ads or other features on Coinsite are provided by third parties, those parties also may use automated means of data collection that are subject to those third parties’ privacy notices and policies.

Below are some examples of the types of automated data collection that may occur when you use our sites:

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Coinsite uses cookies to help Coinsite identify and track visitors, their usage of Coinsite website, and their website access preferences. Coinsite visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Coinsite websites, with the drawback that certain features of Coinsite’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Web Browsers

When you visit one of our websites, your browser automatically sends us your Internet protocol (“IP”) address so that the web pages you request can be sent to your computer or device. We use your IP address to determine additional information, such as whether the computer or device has ever been used to visit our site before, which site features were used the most often, and how much time was spent on a page.

Ads

Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Coinsite and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Log Files and Web Beacons

Like many sites, coinsite.com makes use of log files. The information inside log files may include data such as internet protocol (IP) addresses, type of browser, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date/time stamp, referring/exit pages, and number of clicks which may be used to analyze trends, administer the site, track users movement around the site, and gather demographic information. IP addresses, and other such information are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable.

We may also use “web beacons” (also known as Internet tags, pixel tags, tracking pixels, and clear GIFs) on pages of our website. These web beacons allow third parties to collect information such as the IP address of the device, the URL of the web page, the time the page was viewed, the type of browser used, and any additional information in cookies that may have been set by the third party. The information is typically collected in log files, which generally track traffic on our websites. Purposes for this information collection may include managing online advertising, including by determining which ads brought users to our websites. The information also is used for analytical purposes and to manage technical issues that may arise. We do not attempt to identify individual users through this information.

Sharing of Information

We may share personal information we collect with our trusted business partners. We also will share personal information with service providers that perform services on our behalf. These partners and service providers are not authorized by us to use or disclose the information except as necessary to perform services on our behalf or comply with legal requirements.

We also may disclose information about you (i) if we are required to do so by law or legal process, (ii) to law enforcement authorities or other government officials, (iii) when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm or financial loss or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual illegal activity, or (iv) if necessary to protect the vital interests of another individual. We also reserve the right to transfer personal information we have about you in the event we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets.

As described in “Our Collection and Use of Non-personal Information” above, we may collect, use, transfer, and disclose non-personal information for any purpose.

When you use our websites, you agree that we may share information about you as described here.

Your Choices

In certain cases, you may have choices about how we use and disclose your personal information. If we provide you with any marketing messages, we also will give you an opportunity to opt out of receiving further messages.

You also can choose not to give us the information we request, as described in the “Information You Provide to Us” section of this Notice. In some cases, if you decide not to provide information we will not be able to provide you with access to the site you requested, or we may not be able to provide you with the service, feature or information you requested.

Please review the sections of this Notice titled “Information Collected by Automated Means” to learn more about how you may be able to stop or limit our receipt of automated information.

You may exercise and amend your choices by sending an email to us as specified in the “How to Contact Us” section below.

Access and Correction

We will provide you with the ability to access and update certain information we have about you, such as your contact information. Your right to access or amend personal information may be limited in some circumstances. Please submit your request by sending an email to the address specified in the “How to Contact Us” section below. Please include your name and email address in your request so that we may respond appropriately and promptly.

Links to Other Sites

We may provide links to other sites for your convenience and information. These sites may be operated by organizations not affiliated with Coinsite so we cannot control and are not responsible for their content, operation, or privacy practices. Those organizations may have their own privacy policies, which we strongly suggest you review if you use other sites. This Notice does not apply to those sites, even if we link to them or they link to us.

How We Protect Personal Information

We maintain appropriate administrative, technical and physical safeguards to protect your personal information from accidental, unlawful or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure or use and other unlawful forms of processing.

Transfers of Information

As part of our operations, we may transfer information about you to any jurisdiction where we do business. Even if those jurisdictions do not have the same privacy laws as the jurisdiction where you reside, we will treat your information as subject to the protections described in this Notice. When you use our websites, you agree that we may transfer information about you as described here.

Updates to Our Privacy Notice

This Privacy Notice may be updated periodically to you to reflect changes in our information practices or relevant laws. Please review this Notice any time you access or use our sites to make sure you have reviewed the most recent version.
