    2. California Consumer Privacy Act. The California Consumer Privacy Act, Cal. Civ. Code §1798.100 et. seq. (“CCPA”), grants residents of California certain rights with respect to their Personal Information and requires us to provide such individuals with certain information, described in this Section.
    3. Your Rights. California residents may exercise the following rights by contacting us at customer.services@royalmint.com or phone +44 800 032 2154 (which may be subject to international rates; please check with your provider), or as described at the end of this document:
      • Know the ways in which we acquire, use, share, disclose and otherwise process your Personal Information;
      • Know the specific pieces of your Personal Information that we hold;
      • Request the deletion of your Personal Information, subject to several exceptions; and
      • Not to be denied goods or services for exercising these rights
        1. Requesting Access to or Deletion of Personal Information. If you are a California resident, you have the right, subject to certain exceptions defined in the CCPA and other applicable laws and regulations, to request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your Personal Information over the past twelve (12) months.

        In order to verify your request, you will need to provide us with sufficient information to identify you individually so that we can comply with you request, including the name you provided to us when you created your account(s) (i.e. your legal first, last name or variants thereof, e.g. nicknames, aliases, titles (“Mr.”, “Mrs.”, “Dr.”, “Jr.”, etc.), the e-mail address(es) you use to correspond with us and any other e-mail addresses you have used with us in the past, your relationship with us (e.g. student, prospective student, special events customer, etc.), your mailing address, including the state and city you reside in currently.

        To make an information access and/or deletion request you may contact us by phone at +44 800 032 2154 (which may be subject to international rates; please check with your provider) or by e-mail at customer.services@royalmint.com.

    4. Sale of Your Personal Information for Ad Re-targeting. California residents also have the right to opt-out of the sale of their Personal Information. CCPA defines some transfers of Personal Information to third parties in exchange for value as a “sale”, even if no money changes hands, such as when online identifiers, device IDs, and other personal information is shared with third party businesses to further their own commercial purposes such as generating user profiles about individuals, or targeting or retargeting advertisements.

      In order to retarget advertisements to you through third party services such as Facebook and Google, we use services such as Facebook Pixel and Google Ads Conversion tracking. Although the data collected by us does not identify you by name or other directly identifiable means, because third party service providers like Facebook and Google are able to connect this data with your user Facebook user accounts and use the data for their own advertising purposes, this use may qualify as a “sale” as defined in the CCPA, in which case we have sold the following categories of your Personal Information in the preceding twelve (12) months:

      You can instruct us to stop the “sale” of your Personal Information by following the instructions here, Do Not Sell My Personal Information. 

      If we have actual knowledge that a California resident is younger than 16, we will request opt-in consent before selling their Personal Information.

      Note that we can still share Personal Information with third parties if those transfers are not “sales,” such as with our Service Providers as described in this Privacy Policy.

      • first name, last name, e-mail address, phone number, street address, company name and address, title, username and/or e-mail address
      • non-personally identifiable information
      • Internet or other electronic network activity information
      • Inferences drawn from any of the above information categories.
    5. Notice Disclosures. Depending on the circumstances and which Service you use, we have disclosed the following categories of your Personal Information for a “business purpose” (as defined in the CCPA) in the preceding twelve (12) months:
      • First name, last name, your image and/or likeness, e-mail address, phone number, street address, comments, company name and address, title, work experience and skills, username and/or e-mail address in combination with a password or security questions and answers, account numbers or credit/debit card numbers, even without a security code, access code, or password if the account could be accessed without such information
      • Geolocation data
      • Non-Personally Identifiable Information
      • Internet or other electronic network activity information
      • Audio, electronic, visual, or similar information
      • Inferences drawn from any of the above information.
    6. Non-Discrimination. We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your rights under California law, including:
      • Deny you goods or services
      • Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties
      • Provide you a different level or quality of goods or services
      • Suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services
    7. Do Not Track. Some web browsers may let you enable a "do not track" feature that sends signals to the websites you visit, indicating that you do not want your online activities tracked.  This is different than blocking or deleting cookies, as browsers with a "do not track" feature enabled may still accept cookies.  There is currently no industry standard for how companies should respond to "do not track" signals, although one may develop in the future.  We do not respond to "do not track" requests or signals at this time.

 

  1. Children
    1. Our Services are not directed to or intended for children under 13 years of age.

Your consent to such purpose remains valid after termination of our relationship with you.

      Unfortunately, despite our best efforts, the transmission of data over the Internet cannot be guaranteed to be 100% secure. While we will use reasonable means to ensure the security of information you transmit through the Sites, any transmission of Personal Information by you is at your own risk. We cannot guarantee that such information will not be intercepted by third-parties and we shall not be liable for any breach of the security of your Personal Information resulting from causes or events that are beyond our control, including, without limitation, your own act or omission, corruption of storage media, defects in third party data security products or services, power failures, natural phenomena, riots, acts of vandalism, hacking, sabotage, or terrorism, and we are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Sites.

    2. Legally Required Disclosures. We will make any legally required disclosures of any breach of the security, confidentiality, or integrity of your unencrypted electronically stored "Personal Information" (as defined in applicable state statutes on security breach notification) to you via e-mail and/or conspicuous posting on the Sites in the most expedient time possible and without unreasonable delay, insofar as it is consistent with (i) the legitimate needs of law enforcement; or (ii) any measures necessary to determine the scope of the breach and restore the reasonable integrity of the data system.
