= We Respect Your Privacy =

The Privacy Policy below governs your Banknotes.com™ account and any information you provide to Banknotes.com™.

A. Overview

In order to operate the Banknotes.com™ website and service and to reduce the risk of fraud, Banknotes.com™ ("Banknotes dot com" or "we") must ask you to provide us information about yourself and other necessary data for processing of your orders. This Privacy Policy describes the information we collect and how we use that information. Banknotes.com™ takes the privacy of your personal information extremely seriously and will use your information only in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy. We will not sell or rent your personally identifiable information or a list of our customers to third parties. However, as described in more detail in Part C below, there are limited circumstances in which some of your information will be shared with third parties, under strict restrictions, so it is important for you to review this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy applies to all services that are hosted on the Banknotes.com™ website, whether the services are offered by Banknotes.com™ or by its subsidiaries.

Any information, which is provided by you, will be treated with the highest standards of security and confidentiality. If at any time after giving us personal information you decide that you no longer wish us to hold or use this information, or in the case that the information becomes out of date, you are free to notify us, and we will remove or rectify the information within a reasonable time and in accordance with legislative requirements.

Your privacy is important to us. By accepting the Privacy Policy and User Agreement in registration, you expressly consent to our use and disclosure of your personal information in the manner described in this Privacy Policy. Please note that some of your personally identifiable information will be stored and processed on our computers. We will hold and transmit your personal information in a safe, confidential and secure environment.

B. Information We Collect

Required Information:
To register a Banknotes.com™ account, you must provide your name, address, phone number, and email address. We may also ask you to choose a security question to answer (such as your city of birth or your pet's name). This required information may be necessary for us or our payment processors to process transactions, issue a new password if you forget or lose your password, protect you against fraud, and to contact you should the need arise in administering your account.

Transaction Information:
When you use Banknotes.com™ to purchase collectible items we ask you to provide information related to each transaction (order). We retain this information for each of your orders placed at the Banknotes.com™ Store/Shop. We also collect the Internet address (IP address) of the computer or device you use to access Banknotes.com™ and your Banknotes.com™ account, in order to help detect possible instances of unauthorised transactions.

Use of "Cookies":

Please refer to your Browser instructions or help screen to learn more about these functions. Cookies are small files of data that the system we use sends to your computer to allow us to recognize you as our customer if you return to our site using the same computer and browser. It sends a "session cookie" to your computer if and when you log in to your Banknotes.com™ account by entering your e-mail address and password. These cookies allow our software to recognize you if you visit multiple pages in our site during the same session, so that you don't need to re-enter your password multiple times. Once you log out or close your browser, these session cookies expire and no longer have any effect.

Information About You From Third Parties:
In order to protect all our customers against potential fraud, we may verify with third parties the information you provide. In the course of such verification, we receive personally identifiable information about you from such services. In particular, if you register a credit card or debit card with Banknotes.com™, we will use card authorisation and fraud screening services to verify that your card information and address matches the information that you supplied to Banknotes.com™, and that the card has not been reported as lost or stolen. In some circumstances we will conduct a background check on you and/or your business by obtaining information about you and your business from a credit bureau or a business information service. If you incur a debt to Banknotes.com™, we will generally conduct a credit check on you by obtaining additional information about you from a credit bureau, to the extent permitted by law. Banknotes.com™, at its sole discretion, also reserves the right periodically to retrieve and review a business and / or consumer credit report for any Customer and their account, and reserves the right to close an account based on information obtained during this credit review process.

Calls may be monitored or recorded to ensure that we carry out your instructions correctly and to help improve the quality of our service and in the interests of security.

Website Traffic Information:
We may collect information on which pages of our Website you visit while you are on the Banknotes.com™ site, the type of browser you use and the times you access our Website. We use this information only to try to understand our customers' preferences better and to manage the load on our servers, so as to improve our service and your experience with Banknotes.com™.

Customer Service Correspondence:
If you send us correspondence, including emails and faxes, we retain such information in the records of your account. We will also retain customer service correspondence and other correspondence from Banknotes.com™ to you. We retain these records in order to measure and improve our customer service, and to investigate potential fraud and violations of our User Agreement. We may, over time, delete these records, if permitted by law.

Questionnaires, Surveys and Profile Data:
From time to time, we offer optional questionnaires and surveys to our users for such purposes as collecting demographic information or assessing users' interests and needs. The use of the information collected will be explained in detail in the survey itself. If we collect personally identifiable information from our users in these questionnaires and surveys, the users will be given notice of how the information will be used prior to their participation in the survey or questionnaire.

C. Our Use and Disclosure of Information

Our Contacts with Banknotes.com™ Customers
We communicate with users on a regular basis via email, regular mail, facsimile and by other means to provide requested services, and we also communicate by telephone to address customer inquiries or investigate suspicious transactions. We use your email address to confirm your registration of a Banknotes.com™ account, to send you certain notice of orders that you place on Banknotes.com™ Store/Shop, to send information about important changes to our products and services, and to send notices and other disclosures required by law. Generally, users cannot opt out of these communications, but they will be primarily informational in nature rather than promotional.

The security of your Banknotes.com™ account also relies on your protection of your Banknotes.com™ password. You may not share your Banknotes.com™ password with anyone. Banknotes.com™ representatives will never ask you for your password, so any email or other communication requesting your password should be treated as unauthorised and suspicious. If you do share your Banknotes.com™ password with a third party for any reason, the third party will have access to your account and your personal information, and you may be responsible for actions taken using your password.
