Our Commitment To Privacy

Your privacy is important to Red Gold, Inc. and its affiliated and related entities (“Red Gold”, “Us”, or “We”). To better protect your privacy, We provide this Policy explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used by Us. To make this Policy easy to find, We make it available on our Website home page and at every point where personally identifiable information may be requested. You may use Red Gold’s website (“Website”) to learn about our products and services without disclosing any personal information. Except as provided for below, We will not share your personal information with other third parties for their independent use without your permission. By using this Website, you agree to the terms set forth below.

The Information We Collect

This Policy applies to all information collected or voluntarily submitted on the Website. On some pages, you can make requests, and register to receive materials. The types of personal information collected at these pages, now referred to herein as Personally Identified Information includes such information as follows:
Name
Address
E-mail address
Phone number
(etc.)

Other Information

We constantly seek to make improvements to the Site. As part of these efforts, we collect and analyze certain “Aggregate Information” (information that does not allow us to identify a specific individual such as demographic information, purchase categories (e.g., food products), or visitors using a particular browser to access the Site) about how visitors use the Site.

When you visit our Site, we may collect various types of technical data. This data includes (but is not limited to) domain and/or Web browser information. We may track which Web site you visited before arriving at the Site and the Web site you link to when you leave the Site. We may also keep a record of which pages of the Site you visit, and how long you spend on each page.

We also use “cookies” and other technologies on the Site. Cookies are small pieces of information that our server places on a visitor’s computer hard drive to enable that person to more easily communicate and interact with the Site and to provide us with important information on how visitors use the Site. For example, we will place a cookie on a visitor’s computer when he/she visits the Site. The next time that person visits the Site using the same computer, our server will recognize the cookie and the visitor. We will also use cookies to collect information about a Member who visits the Site without signing-in (or who signs-out but continues visiting the Site). Further, cookies and other technologies are used in email messages sent by our email delivery and marketing company and at our website to help us measure the effectiveness of our advertising and how visitors use our site. With respect to ads, information about your visits to this site, such as number of times you have viewed an ad (but not your name, address, or other personal information), is used to serve ads to you. Many Web browsers are automatically set to accept cookies. You may change your browser settings to either reject cookies or notify you when a cookie is about to be placed on your computer. Please note, however, that rejecting cookies while visiting the Site may result in certain parts of the Site not operating correctly or as efficiently as if they were allowed. Cookies must be enabled in order to register with the Site.

How We Use Information

We collect and use the Personally Identifiable Information you provide to enhance your visit and deliver more individualized content and advertising. For example, we may use Personally Identifiable Information collected on the Site to communicate with you regarding products and services offered by RED GOLD and our affiliates and partners and other topics we think you might find of interest; in the administration of sweepstakes, contests or other promotions; and to process e-commerce transactions.

In addition, we use Personally Identifiable Information, such as your purchase information, to improve the performance of our Site, to customize the content and layout of our Site pages for you and to inform you of new areas of the Site and product specials.

How we use Aggregate Information collected on the Site

Aggregate Information collected on the Site may be used in many ways. For example, we may collect and analyze collected Aggregate Information to determine how many visitors arrived at certain pages of the Site, how long they stayed on those pages, and where they went afterwards. This information allows us to determine which pages might be the most interesting to our visitors and enables us to provide them with a better and richer experience on the Site. Additionally, we may use Aggregate Information to improve the performance of our Site, and to customize the content and layout of our Site pages for you.

Occasionally, we share Aggregate Information with third parties, such as our advertisers and business partners, for marketing and promotional purposes. Aggregate Information gleaned from your use of the Site may also be used to inform you of new areas of the Site and product specials.

We may supplement Aggregate Information collected from the Site with similar information obtained from our affiliates, companies with whom we have marketing or other business relationships, and other third party sources.

Please note that certain Aggregate Information may be linked with Personally Identifiable Information. Any such linked information will be treated as Personally Identifiable Information for the purposes of this Policy as long as it is so linked.

Does RED GOLD share information with other companies?

Certain activities and services available on the Site are provided by third parties. We may share your Personally Identifiable Information with third parties for the purpose of enabling such third parties to provide such activities, services or products. For example, if you choose to purchase a product from us, we may use outside vendors to process your credit card, or to process and ship the order to you. In these instances, we would need to provide certain Personally Identifiable Information, such as your credit card information and shipping address, to these vendors.

We may operate sweepstakes, contests, raffles, games and similar promotions through the Site. We typically ask you for certain Personally Identifiable Information when you enter and, if applicable, win a sweepstakes, contest, raffle, game or similar promotion. We reserve the right to share this Personally Identifiable Information with third party sponsors of such sweepstakes, contests, raffles, games and promotions (irrespective of whether it is hosted by us), or otherwise in accordance with the rules applicable to such sweepstakes, contest, raffle, game or promotion. You should carefully review the rules of each sweepstakes, contest, raffle, game and promotion in which you participate through the Site, as they may contain additional important information about RED Gold’s or a sponsor’s use of your Personally Identifiable Information. To the extent that the Terms of Use of such rules concerning the treatment of your Personally Identifiable Information conflict with this Policy, the Terms of Use of such rules shall control.

We use an email delivery and marketing company to send emails that you have agreed to receive, in which case we will provide certain Personally Identifiable Information, including your email address, to the marketing company.

We reserve the right to share both Personally Identifiable and Aggregate Information with other RED GOLD businesses and our subsidiaries. We also share Personally Identifiable Information about visitors and Members with third-party companies with whom we have a marketing or other business relationship. We may also disclose Personally Identifiable Information in order to: (1) comply with applicable laws; (2) respond to governmental inquiries or requests; (3) comply with valid legal process; (4) protect the rights, privacy, safety or property of RED GOLD; (5) to permit us to pursue available remedies or limit the damages that we may sustain; and (6) to enforce our Terms of Use.

In the event there is a change in the corporate structure of RED GOLD such as, but not limited to, merger, consolidation, sale, liquidation, or transfer of substantial assets, RED GOLD may, in its sole discretion, transfer, sell or assign information collected on and through this Site, including without limitation, Personally Identifiable Information concerning visitors, to one or more affiliated or unaffiliated third parties.

In addition, we may use third party advertisers to serve advertisements on the Site. Please note that these third party advertisers may use cookies and other technologies to, among other things, enable such third party advertisers to record which ads your browser has seen and which Site pages you may have been viewing when the ads were delivered. RED GOLD does not control the use of this technology or the resulting information and is not responsible for any actions or policies of such third parties.

If I link to another Website and provide information to that Website, how will that information be handled?

This Site may contain links to third party Websites, including, but not limited to, the Websites of companies with whom we have business or marketing relationships such as companies that sell products and services. If you link to a third party Website, you will leave this Site and this Policy will not apply to your use of, and activities on, those other Websites. If you provide Personally Identifiable Information to any such third party Web site, your transaction will occur on such third party’s Web site (not this Site) and the Personally Identifiable Information you provide will be collected by, and controlled by the privacy policy of, that third party. We encourage you to read the legal notices posted on those third party Websites, including their privacy policies. We shall have no responsibility or liability for your visitation to, and the data collection and use practices of, such third party Websites. PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS POLICY DOES NOT ADDRESS THE PRIVACY OR INFORMATION PRACTICES OF ANY THIRD PARTIES.

Credit Card and Merchandise Purchase Information

You will be asked to enter credit card information each time that you purchase merchandise because we do not retain your credit card information. We use credit card information only to transmit it securely to our credit card processing centers for approval. We shall not be liable for the acts of any third party credit card processors or any third parties involved in the purchase of merchandise. We will save the history of all the orders you place on the Website so that you can review your prior purchases, and track the status of your orders.

Our Commitment To Data Security

In an effort to prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place certain physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information We collect online. It is, however, recognized that no company can perfectly protect personal information and you acknowledge that the security of information provided is not guaranteed.

What are my “opt-out” choices?

You may choose not to receive promotional emails or electronic newsletters from us by: (A) following the “unsubscribe” instructions in the specific email from which you wish to opt-out; (B) sending an email to info@redgold.com specifying the particular emails list(s) from which you wish to be removed.

Our Commitment To Children’s Privacy

Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, we comply with the Child Online Protection Act, 47 U.S.C. Section 231, and never collect or maintain personal information at our Website from those we actually know are under the age of 13, except that minors may post certain information related to activities and/or games. However, We shall not be responsible for any information submitted or posted on the Website by minors or other individuals. We do not sell merchandise to minors. If you are under the age of 18, you may only purchase merchandise through your parent or guardian.

How You Can Correct Your Information

You can correct all your personal information that we collect online and maintain by contacting the Consumer Relations Department at 1-866-729-7187 or via e-mail at info@redgold.com. We use this procedure to better safeguard your information. It is important you understand, however, that certain residual personal information will remain because of the difficulty associated with erasing all pertinent information.

To protect your privacy and security, We will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections.
You can correct factual errors in your personal information by sending Us a request that credibly shows error. You may also ask that we remove your personal information from our records by sending a written request.
