HOW DOES MiningBitcoins.net PROTECT THE PERSONAL INFORMATION THAT IT COLLECTS?

Our IT experts have implemented certain appropriate security measures to help protect your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. For example, some of our websites are protected with Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. Also, we store the information about you in a data center with restricted access and appropriate monitoring and we use a variety of sophisticated security measures to secure your data. In addition, we use custom intrusion detection and virus protection software. However, please note that we cannot guarantee that unauthorized persons will always be unable to defeat our security measures. No security system is 100% foolproof.

Also, please note that we may store and process your personal information in systems located outside of your home country. However, regardless of where these activities occur, we take appropriate steps to ensure that your information is protected consistent with the principles set forth under this statement and with the utmost of care.

WHO HAS ACCESS TO THE INFORMATION?

We will not sell, rent, or lease mailing lists or other customer data to others, and we will not make your personal information available to any unaffiliated parties, except as follows:

* to agents and/or contractors who may use it on our behalf or in connection with their relationship with us; and
* to attorneys who may use it on your behalf or in connection with their relationship with us; and
* as required by law, in a matter of public safety or policy, as needed in connection with the transfer of our business assets (for example, if we are acquired by another company or if we are liquidated during bankruptcy proceedings), or if we believe in good faith that sharing the data is necessary to protect our rights or property.

We also rely on some of our affiliates for support of the products and services we offer, and we share some of our back-office functions with other companies. Our affiliates are all required to preserve the confidentiality of any personal information they may access. We will not voluntarily disclose any information about your usage to unaffiliated third parties, except as necessary in order to service the account, or to enforce the terms of use, or to meet our obligations to content and technology providers, or as required by law.

We may also use statistics regarding usage for product development purposes, but we only use those statistics in the aggregate and they do not include any personally identifiable information about specific individual users.

Your access to some of our services and content may or may not be password protected. If so, we recommend that you refrain from disclosing your username(s) and password(s) to anyone, ever. We also recommend that you sign out of your account or service at the end of each session. You may also consider closing your browser window when you have finished your work, especially if you share a computer with other people, or if you are using a computer in a public internet access place like a library or Internet cafe.
