1. How We Collect and Use Personal Information
“Personal Information” means information about you as an identifiable individual, but does not include “Business Contact Information”. Personal Information includes your name, home address, home telephone number, and personal e-mail address.
“Business Contact Information” means: your business position, name or title, business address, business telephone number, business email address and business fax number.
At or before the time your Personal Information is collected through the Site, Nicola Mining will identify how your Personal Information will be used or disclosed. Without limiting the foregoing, Nicola Mining may collect your Personal Information for the following purposes:
- Sharing Information. Your Personal Information may be collected from you and used by Nicola Mining so that we can share information about Nicola Mining, the Site, or our services with you.
- Service Analysis. When you use our Site, a cookie may be placed within the memory of your internet access device. A cookie is a small piece of information that a website can store via your internet access device for later retrieval. We may use permanent cookies or server-side artifacts to help us track use of our services by users, including casual visitors to the Site—such as (without limitation) the number and frequency of visits to our pages and which parts of our Site are visited. Similarly, we may also collect IP addresses of users who visit the Site, and use such information to evaluate Site performance and Service quality.
2. Our Disclosure of Personal Information
We will not sell, license, trade or rent your Personal Information. Nicola Mining may disclose Personal Information if a law, regulation, search warrant, subpoena or court order legally requires or authorizes us to do so.

Unauthorized use of Personal Information by anyone affiliated with Nicola Mining is prohibited and constitutes grounds for disciplinary action.
6. Links to Third Party Sites
The use of our Services may lead you to third party websites. Those organizations are separate and distinct from Nicola Mining, and have their own separate privacy policies.
