Using Information from Macoins Gold LLC

Macoins Gold LLC allows you to share personal and financial information in order to complete transactions. We suggest that you make explicit to your trading partner your privacy practices. In addition, we remind you to respect the privacy of other users. Since we cannot guarantee the security of the information you have shared with other users, you should familiarize yourself with privacy policy of your trading partner before carrying out specific transactions or sharing your information. However, given our commitment to do everything possible to protect users’ privacy, we allow only limited access to other users' information. This limited amount of information (for example contact details, shipping address, financial information) is only made available for viewing in order to facilitate your transactions. When users are involved in a transaction, they may have access to their trading partner’s name, User ID, email address and other contact and shipping information. However, you must give other users a chance to remove themselves from your database and a chance to review the information about them that you have on file.

You agree to use other users’ information only for:

  • Macoins Gold LLC transaction-related activities

  • using services offered through Macoins Gold LLC (such as escrow, shipping, and fraud complaints)

  • other purposes that a user expressly notifies you about.

Cookies and Sessions

We use "cookies" and "sessions" (small files placed on your hard drive) for the purposes of analyzing our web page flow. We also use these to help customize our services, content and advertising, to get an idea about the effectiveness of our promotional strategy, and to promote safety and mutual trustworthiness.

The following are some important things to know about cookies and sessions:

  • Some of the features we offer are only available through the use of cookies or sessions

  • We use cookies and sessions to help identify you and maintain your signed-in status

  • Most cookies are "session cookies,"i.e. once your session is over they get automatically deleted from your hard drive

  • You have the choice to refuse the use of our cookies with the understanding that this may limit your use of certain features on our website

  • While using our website you may encounter cookies from third parties, such as cookies which are part of a web page created by another user

Zero Tolerance for Spam, Spyware or Spoofing

We stand firmly against the proliferation of spam. Make sure to set your Macoins Gold LLC communication preferences so we communicate to you as you prefer. You are not licensed to add other Macoins Gold LLC users, even a user who has purchased an item from you, to your mailing list (email or physical mail) unless they have explicitly agreed to that. You may not use our communication tools to send spam or otherwise send content that would violate our User Agreement. We automatically scan and may manually filter messages to check for spam, viruses, phishing attacks and other malicious activity or illegal or prohibited content, but we do not permanently store messages sent through these tools.

Protection of Your Account

To help protect your account, make sure you do not share your Macoins Gold LLC password. Use unique numbers, letters and/or special characters. If you do share your password or your personal information with others, then you take responsibility for all activities carried out in the name of your account. If you lose control of your password, you may lose substantial control over your personal information and may be subject to legally binding actions taken on your behalf. Therefore, if your password has been compromised in whatever way, you should inform Macoins Gold LLC as soon as possible and change your password.

Accessing, Reviewing and Changing Your Personal Information

You can view, change and add to your personal information by signing on to Macoins Gold LLC. As a general rule, we will not attempt to manually alter your personal information. It is up to you to update your personal information in a timely fashion if you feel that changes are necessary due to updates or inaccuracies. Once you make a public posting, you may not be able to change or remove it. Upon your request, we will close your account and remove your personal information from view as soon as we can. After you have closed your account, your personal information will be stored (but removed from public view) in compliance with applicable laws and in order to be able to collect any fees outstanding, or to prevent fraud, help with any investigations, settle disputes, or enforce our Macoins Gold LLC User Agreement.


Your information is stored on our servers located in the United States. We treat data as an asset that must be protected and use lots of tools (server side programming, passwords, etc.) to protect your personal information against unauthorized access and disclosure. However, as you probably know, third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, and other users may abuse or misuse your personal information that they collect from the site. Therefore, although we work very hard to protect your privacy, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information or private communications will always remain private.

Third Parties and their Use of Information

This document addresses only the use and disclosure of information we collect from you and does not concern third parties, except in the cases explicitly outlined in this Privacy Policy document. In the event that you choose to share your information with other users (for instance sellers, buyers, or bidders) or decide to distribute your information to other internet venues, these venues may have different rules regarding the disclosure and use of information. Macoins Gold LLC does not take responsibility for the privacy policies of third parties, and you are subject to the privacy policies of those third parties where applicable. We strongly suggest that you inquire in to the specifics of any third party’s policy regarding the disclosure of information before you proceed to share that information with them.


We reserve our right to make amendments to this Privacy Policy based on our discretion and whenever we consider such amendments necessary. We will post the amended terms on this site and they will take effect 30 days after they are initially posted. We welcome questions and concerns which you may submitt to us in writing by filling out our Contact Us form.
