We share user information solely and exclusively as described below:

Third-Party Service Providers. We use the services of third parties to perform certain functions on our behalf and through our website. Examples include creating and hosting the website, processing payments (Stripe, PayPal), sending emails, analyzing data (Google Analytics), displaying ads on the website, providing marketing assistance, and delivering search results and links.

Business Transfers. In the event that Gold Dust creates, merges with, or is acquired by another entity, your information will most likely be transferred. Gold Dust will email you or place a prominent notice on our website before your information becomes subject to another privacy policy.

Protection of Gold Dust and others. We release personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce or apply our terms and conditions and other agreements, or protect the rights, property, or safety of Gold Dust, our users or others.

With Your Consent. Other than as set out above, you will receive notice when personally identifiable information about you might go to third parties, and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information.

Anonymous Information. Gold Dust uses the anonymous browsing information collected automatically by our servers primarily to help us administer and improve the website. This information is not personally identifiable.


We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you provide through the website. We restrict authorized access to your personal information to those persons who have a legitimate purpose to know that information and to those persons you have authorized to have access to that information. Gold Dust follows generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once Gold Dust receives it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while Gold Dust strives to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. We will not sell, distribute, or lease your personal information to third parties unless we have your permission or are required by law to do so.


Users who provide information through our website, as data subjects and data owners, have the right to access, rectify, download or delete their information, as well as to restrict and object to certain processing of their information. While some of these rights apply generally, others apply only in certain limited circumstances. We describe these rights below:

  • Object: When we process your information based on our legitimate interests as explained above, or in the public interest, you may object to this processing in certain circumstances. In such cases, we will stop processing your information unless we have compelling legitimate reasons to continue processing it or where it is necessary for legal reasons.
  • Revoke consent: Where you have previously given your consent, such as to allow us to process and store your personal information, you have the right to revoke your consent to the processing and storage of your information at any time. For example, you may withdraw your consent by updating your settings. In certain cases, we may continue to process your information after you have withdrawn your consent if we have a legal basis for doing so or if your withdrawal of consent was limited to certain processing activities.
  • Complaint: If you wish to file a complaint about our use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local supervisory authority. Users can exercise all these rights by contacting us through the contact information or the contact page.
  • Rights related to automated decision-making, including profiling: website users may request that we provide a copy of the automated processing activities we conduct if they believe that data is being unlawfully processed.

Users or owners of the personal information they provide through the website may exercise these rights over their personal information at any time and without any limitation by sending us their request through our contact information.
