Personal Data Privacy and Protection Policy
This privacy statement covers the Web site www.TheRoyaltyExchange.com.
If you have questions or concerns regarding this statement, you should first contact Sean Peace sean@The Royalty Exchange.com or 919-324-2945.
The Royalty Exchange considers the privacy and protection of its clients’ personal data to be of utmost importance. To ensure that you feel confident about providing us with your personal information when communicating with us and using our services, we outline below our practices in relation to the collection and use of personal data.
The Royalty Exchange will collect, record, store and use your personal data including phone, email, and gender, world-wide but only to enable you to consign or purchase property or services and, unless you object, to advise you of forthcoming sales, events and services.
You can update or change your personal information collected on the site by logging into the Site and clicking on the “My Account” button on the upper right corner. There you will be able to edit your personal information.
We will not share your Personal Data with anyone outside The Royalty Exchange.
We may from time to time however need to disclose your personal data to agents or contractors of The Royalty Exchange to enable The Royalty Exchange to process transactions or communicate with you such as third part credit card processors. Where we do so it will be on the basis that they are required to keep the information confidential and will not use the information for any other purpose than to carry out the services they are performing for The Royalty Exchange.
Any personal data you provide to us is securely stored in a database held by The Royalty Exchange to which only authorized The Royalty Exchange employees and agents have access.
We have put in place administrative measures to ensure that the access which The Royalty Exchange employees and agents have to personal data on our server is limited to the extent necessary in order to perform their functions.
All our employees are required to sign a confidentiality agreement in which they agree to treat personal data as strictly confidential.
The server holding your personal data is protected against both unauthorized physical and electronic access. These measures include an electronic firewall and various other protection measures that involve virus scanning, installation of security patches, vulnerability testing, backup and recovery planning, employee training, security audits and other steps designed to constantly improve the data protection posture. The Server is not directly connected to the Internet, and data is therefore available only to authorized computers.
The Royalty Exchange and the Internet
In general, you may browse our Internet site anonymously. However, certain of our online services require the collection of some personally identifying information, such as your name, address, and, when appropriate, your credit information.
For transactions over The Royalty Exchange web-site involving particularly sensitive information, such as credit card numbers and accounting information, The Royalty Exchange will employ accepted transmission and storage protocols, such as encryption, to prevent this information from being disclosed. This means that when you type in sensitive information such as credit card details, it will be automatically converted into codes before being securely sent to us over the Internet.
This information will be used for processing transactions but may also be used for internal data processing, such as compiling statistical information about your interests and the use of our Internet site. As a service to you, we may also use this information to customize the content we offer.
In order to provide you with timely notice about upcoming auctions and events, The Royalty Exchange may send you email notices based on your expressed interests and bidding history. To facilitate this service, The Royalty Exchange may note some of the pages you visit on our website.
At the bottom of each email or news letters you will be provided with the option to update your collecting interests or unsubscribe from future mailings. At any time, you may also send an email to info@The Royalty Exchange.com and request that your email address be removed from our lists.
The The Royalty Exchange sites contain links to other Web sites. None of the information that you provide to us will be transmitted to other Web sites. The Royalty Exchange is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such Web site and encourages you to read the privacy policies of these Sites.
The Royalty Exchange may also use on its Internet properties a personalization technology called a “cookie.” A cookie is a small text file placed on your computer’s hard disk that identifies your browser software to a Web site. Cookies allow us to track when you enter, leave, and re-enter our sites and what path you take through our sites. In doing this, we can provide you with a more personalized experience. We do not link personal information to cookies on the Site.
E-mail a Friend
The Royalty Exchange provides users of this site the opportunity to inform others (each, a “recipient”) about a sale or lot for sale, which will require the sender to provide the recipient’s email address(es). At the sender’s request, The Royalty Exchange will automatically send the recipient email on behalf of the sender a link to The Royalty Exchange site containing the information about the sale or lot. The Royalty Exchange will not initiate any further contact with the recipient, beyond the email sent on behalf of the sender, unless the recipient specifically “subscribes” for extra services by filling out a registration form.
If you, as a recipient, do not wish to receive further e-mail from the sender, please reply to the sender requesting they stop sending you the email in the future. The Royalty Exchange does not accept responsibility for any third party’s use (or misuse) of this service.
While we will not voluntarily disclose your personal data we may disclose such information if we are required to do so by a Court Order, judicial proceeding, warrant, subpoena, if we are requested by government or law enforcement authorities, if we are required to do so pursuant to other legal processes, or if it becomes necessary to protect the rights or property of The Royalty Exchange.
If you have any queries in relation to the use and protection of your personal data please contact us on info@The Royalty Exchange.com or:
