COOKIES AND WEB BEACONS PLACED BY BULLION SHARK 

When You visit the Website, We send to Your computer one or more “cookies” (i.e., a small file containing a string of characters) that, among other things, uniquely identifies Your browser and allows the Website to “remember” Your computer and Your activities on the Website. Bullion Shark uses cookies to uniquely and anonymously identify its users. No Personal Information is collected or stored in these cookies. These cookies cannot damage a user’s files and cannot read information from a user’s hard drive. Most web browsers are initially set up to accept cookies, but You can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. Please note that some of the Website’s features may not function properly and You may not be able to purchase or use the Goods and Services if Your cookies are disabled. A web beacon is generally a transparent graphic image (usually a very small pixel) that is placed on a website or in an email which is used to monitor behavior of a user visiting a website or email. When HTML code for a web beacon points to a site to retrieve the image, it can pass along information such as IP address of the computer that retrieved the image, time the page was viewed and length, the type of internet browser that retrieved the image, and any previously set cookie values in regards to the web beacon.

This Privacy Policy pertains to Bullion Shark and its Goods and Services as well as to postings You make on social media outlets such as Bullion Shark’s Facebook page and in response to Bullion Shark’s Twitter tweets. Social media platforms and other websites, such as those to which the Website link to or link to the Website, may have their own privacy policies. We encourage You to read the privacy policies and terms of use of the social 

media platforms used by Bullion Shark and other websites that You visit either through links placed on the Website as well as those for websites that provide links to the Website. You should contact these social media platforms or websites directly if You have any questions about their use of Your Personal Information. Bullion Shark is not responsible for any use of Your Personal Information or any other type of Your information when You use such third-party sites and services.

Bullion Shark reserves the right to sell, rent or otherwise share some or all of Your Personal Information with other companies or individuals outside of Bullion Shark if: 

· You have consented to such sale, rental or sharing; and/or 

· Bullion Shark becomes involved in a merger, acquisition, or any form of sale of all or substantially all of its assets. In such circumstances, Bullion Shark will provide notice before Personal Information is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy. 

In addition, Bullion Shark reserves the right to share non-personally identifiable information relating to users of Bullion Shark or the Goods and Services with our partners and advertisers. The information will not be linked to any personal identifiable information. 

INFORMATION SECURITY 

Bullion Shark takes commercially reasonable and appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of its data, including Personal Information stored or maintained on our servers or those of third parties and other systems. These measures include internal reviews of Bullion Shark’s data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures, as well as physical security measures to guard against unauthorized access to servers and systems where Bullion Shark stores personal data. 

DATA INTEGRITY 

Bullion Shark processes Personal Information only for the purposes for which it was collected and in accordance with this Privacy Policy. Bullion Shark also takes commercially reasonable steps to ensure that the Personal Information we process is accurate, complete, and current, but we depend on You and our other users to update or correct their Personal Information whenever necessary.

When you use Bullion Shark, Bullion Shark makes good faith efforts to provide you with access to your Personal Information. Where applicable, Bullion Shark asks individual users to identify themselves and the information requested to be accessed, corrected or removed before processing such requests, and Bullion Shark may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive or systematic, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup tapes), or for which access is not otherwise required. In any case, where Bullion Shark provides information access and correction, Bullion Shark provides this service free of charge, except if doing so would require a disproportionate effort.
