About You and Our Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy is all about you and protecting your privacy and personal information. You are incredibly important to us GoldVu and we want to ensure that you feel very comfortable in any dealings that have with us both directly and indirectly.

Under lock & key

All aspects of your privacy (both personal and corporate) are taken seriously by us at GoldVu and we strive to maintain the strictest controls relating  to your personal data.

The basic summary of what is written below is that your private data and information that we hold / collect is no-one else's business!

Any legal requests relating to your information from governments etc will be challenged, as we will not hand over your private information to anyone simply because they say so.

What do we mean by Personal Information? It is any information about you that can be used to uniquely identify or contact you.

What do we mean by Private Information? It is any information about you where you did not provide explicit consent for it to be made publicly available or was offered in confidence.

Online Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy applies only to information collected through our website and not to information collected off-line.

Any information collected and held off-line about you is governed separately by EU Data Protection Laws.

(In case you're wondering -- the use of your off-line personal information treated in the same manner as your on-line data -- basically put, all of your personal information is still none of anyone else's business!)

So, onwards with more of our commitment to your privacy...

How Do We Protect Your Information?

Data protection

We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you place an order or enter, submit, or access your personal information.

We only use secure servers and the computers we use to connect to those servers also use comprehensive security technologies.

All supplied sensitive / credit information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our payment provider's database. This information is then in turn only accessible by those authorised with special access rights to such systems and they are required to keep the information confidential.

After a transaction, your private information (credit cards, social security numbers, financials, etc.) will not be stored on our servers.

Use of Cookies and Web Beacons

This website is compliant with the EU user consent policy, whereby the visitor to a EU website is given the choice of whether or not the visitor is happy or not to for us to use and store cookies regarding your visit.

We use cookies to help you personalize your online experience. Cookies are identifiers that are transferred to your computer's hard drive through your web browser to enable our system to recognize your browser.

The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have come to the site for the first time, or have returned to a specific page. If you personalize the site's pages, or register with any of our site's services, a cookie enables GoldVu to recall your specific information on subsequent visits.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies by modifying settings in your browser; however, if you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the site.

A web beacon is a transparent image file used to monitor your journey around a single website or collection of sites. Beacons are also referred to as web bugs. They are commonly used by sites that use third-party services to monitor traffic. They may be used in association with cookies to understand how visitors interact with the pages and content on the pages of a website.

As you browse this website, Google Analytics and advertising cookies will be placed on your computer to collect demographic and interest information, but we do not tie the cookie to any personal information that you provide to us. If you do not wish your data to be collected via Google Analytics, you may use their opt-out tool...

Google opt-out tool

We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads on our website. These companies use cookies and web beacons in their ads to ascertain how many times you've seen an advertisement. No personally identifiable information you give us is provided to them for cookie or web beacon use, so they cannot personally identify you with that information from our website.

Some third-party advertisements may be provided by Google, which uses the DoubleClick cookie to serve ads. This cookie enables Google to serve ads to users based on their visits to other sites on the Web. You may opt out of the use of the DoubleClick cookie by visiting the:

Google ad and content network privacy policy

Browsers can be set to accept or reject cookies automatically, or notify you when a cookie is being requested. Privacy software can be used to override web beacons. Taking either of these actions should not cause a problem with our site, should you so choose.

Most web browsers allow some control of most cookies through the browser settings. To find out more about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set and how to manage and delete them, visit

Disclosure of Information to Outside Parties About You

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website (such as server hosts), conducting our business (such as our Consultants which may be free-lance), or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential.

We may also release information about you only when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law (on a case by case basis and where we have also taken legal guidance), enforce our site policies (see GoldVu's Terms of Use), or protect ours or others rights, property, or safety.

At this point in time we do not envisage using or providing even non-personally identifiable visitor information to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses. Any such data analysis or other use will only be used internally by GoldVu to improve its services and performance.

Release of Information

If GoldVu is sold, the information we have obtained from you through your voluntary participation in our site may transfer to the new owner as a part of the sale in order that the service being provided to you may continue. In that event, you will receive notice through our website of that change in control and practices, and we will make reasonable efforts to ensure that the purchaser honours any opt-out requests you might make of us.

How You Can Correct or Remove Information

We provide this privacy policy as a statement to you of our commitment to protect your personal information. If you have submitted personal information through our website and would like that information deleted from our records, or would like to update or correct that information, please use our Contact Us page.
