1. Information Collected
Stallion Gold holds our customers in the highest regards and is dedicated to providing the best experience with respect to our Services. In order to offer an enjoyable and premium experience on our Website, we collect information which can personally identify you (e.g., name, address and email) and information that is about you but that does not identify you individually (e.g., aggregate information on the number and frequency of visits to various pages of the Website).

3. Sharing of Information Collected
We may share your personal information with:
(a) Third-party vendors, service providers, contractors and agents that perform services on our behalf, as needed to carry out their work for us, which may include identifying and serving advertisements, providing mailing services, web hosting, providing analytic services, age verification, and processing payments. This sharing is only done so when those entities are performing functions solely on our behalf and they are not permitted to store such information except as needed to perform our work or as required by law;
(b) When you post content to any public area of our externally facing platforms, including social media pages or blog, this information may be visible to the public and we may publish this information on our Website and social media pages along with some of your personal information such as your first name, last initial, or province of residence;

We may also share information with others in an aggregated or otherwise anonymized form that cannot be linked back to you as an individual directly, or indirectly, in any form.
4. Third Party Tracking and Online Advertising
Information Collected Via Technology
An “Internet protocol address” or “IP Address” is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. In some cases your IP Address stays the same from browser session to browser session; but if you use a consumer internet access provider, your IP Address probably varies from session to session. For example, we, or our service providers, may track your IP Address when you access Stallion Gold to assist with ad targeting.
“Cookies” are small pieces of information that a website sends to your computer’s hard drive while you are viewing a website. We may use both session Cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent Cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to provide you with a more personal and interactive experience with Stallion Gold. Persistent Cookies can be removed by following your Internet browser help file directions. In order to use our Services, your web browser may need to accept Cookies. If you choose to disable Cookies, some aspects of the Services may not work properly.

Subject to certain permissible exceptions under applicable laws, you can generally review, modify, correct, or delete your information, or remove your name or comments from our Website or publicly displayed content, by contacting us directly at [email protected]
Controlling your communications preferences
You do not have to consent to receiving promotional messages in order to use the Website or our Service more generally. In fact, certain messages will not be sent to you unless you provide explicit consent (e.g., promotional messages from third parties).
You can also stop receiving promotional email communications from us at any time by clicking on the “unsubscribe link” provided in such communications. We make every effort to promptly process all unsubscribe requests.

6. Children’s Privacy
We do not knowingly collect or solicit any information from anyone under the age of 13 on this Service. In the event that we learn that we have inadvertently collected personal information from a child under age 13, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from a child under 13, please contact us at [email protected] Protecting the privacy of children and youth is very important to us. Thus, if we obtain actual knowledge that a user is under the age of 13, we will take steps to remove that user’s personal information from our databases. We recommend that anyone under the age of 13 obtain their parent’s permission before submitting information over the internet.
7. Transferring Data Outside Canada
Your information collected through our Service may be stored and processed in both Canada and the United States or any other country in which Stallion Gold or its affiliates or service providers maintain operations now or at some point in the future. Please note that we may transfer information, including personal information, to a country and jurisdiction that does not have the same data protection laws as Canada, and such information may be accessible to courts, law enforcement and national authorities in the jurisdiction(s) where it is stored. If you do not want your information to be transferred or stored outside Canada, you should not provide us with any personal information.
8. Third Party Website
We take the security of your information seriously and employ physical, administrative, and technological safeguards designed to preserve the integrity and security of all information collected through our Service.
