GLOBAL DIGITAL COIN (GDC) has firm commitment to privacy.
GDC is thus committed to safeguarding your privacy online as a customer, client user or member (collectively as member). The following policy indicates how your personal information will be treated as you make full use of this web site.
This policy may change from time to time so please check back periodically. For additional information about GDC, please review our Terms and Conditions. GDC does not sell or rent your personal identification to third parties. GDC does provide your personal identification to selected, affiliated companies to allow them to perform services for members on our behalf.
It is the policy of GDC to send members only the types of email they elect to receive in addition to GDC customary business communications (address confirmation, renewal notifications, new product offerings, etc.) Further, it is our policy to remove members from any GDC mailing list to which they have subscribed upon request (members will continue to receive customary business communications from GDC). Every opt-in email communication from GDC will contain clear instructions for how the member can remove themselves from that mailing list.
Demographic and profile data is also collected at our site. We use this data to tailor your experience at GDC, showing content that we think you might be interested in, and displaying the content according to your preferences. We do this in two ways. First, we analyse member information in aggregate - that is, we collect information about thousands of site visits and analyse it as a whole. This kind of study involves looking for trends among many visitors to GDC, rather than analysing information about any individual member. Examples include researching which parts of the site are accessed most frequently, or determining which products are most attractive to our users. Second, we may use information gathered during your visit to help customise our communications with you. GDC may periodically conduct individual voluntary member surveys. We encourage members to participate in these surveys because they provide us with important information that helps us to improve the types of services we offer, and how we provide them to you. The responses we collect in online surveys are anonymous. In the end, we hope to tailor our communications with you to fit your needs - so that you receive more of what you want from us and less of what you don't want.
Updating Your Personal Information:
GDC provides you with many ways in which you can alter your personal data (where available). To make these changes, please log into your membership area (when available) and follow the directions. Once you have made the desired changes, click the 'Submit New Contact Information' button to save your changes. Various branded version of the GDC web site may not cater for this option.
The Security of Your Information:
We work diligently to protect the security of your personal information, including credit card information (where available), during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input. If applicable your data is kept in a highly secure environment protected from access by unauthorised parties. Other than the administrator of this web site or other authorised GDC personnel, you are the only person who has access to your personal information. Your user registration is password-protected to prevent unauthorised access. It is important for you to protect against unauthorised access to your password, PINs and to your computer by ensuring you logoff when finished visiting GDC using a shared computer. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place like a library or Internet cafe. We recommend that you do not divulge your password or PINs to anyone. GDC will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or in an unsolicited email. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, GDC cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
GDC may employ a browser monitor within web pages on our site in order to determine your browser status and the client-side metrics relating to page loading. We constantly seek ways to improve page load times for our members and may ultimately use these metrics for such purposes. Any such browser monitor will only be active while the use is active on the GDC site. For your protection, any such browser monitor will not require an executable (*.exe) application.
Like most Internet sites, we may use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer this web site. Your IP address may also be used to gather broad demographic information. This information is distributed to current and potential advertisers, but only in aggregate form. It does not contain information that identifies individual members.
Where applicable if you wish to have your registration removed from our directory for any reason, simply use our online registration removal process. If you have any problem removing your registration, please request assistance from membercare(at)globaldigitalcoin.io
Advertising and Third Party Links:
Some GDC advertisers and affiliate partners may request information directly from users, or link to sites that do so. GDC has no control over its advertisers' privacy policies, and encourages users to review such policies prior to submitting any personal information to them. GDC contains non-advertising links to a variety of third party sites to enhance the member experience. GDC has no control of either the content or privacy policies of such sites, nor should such links be considered an endorsement of these sites except where otherwise noted.
GDC is a general audience web site. Protecting the privacy of the young is especially important to GDC. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our web site from those we actually know are under 13, and no part of our web site is intended for use by those under 13. Children should always ask a parent for permission before sending personal information to anyone online. GDC does not share personal information about users under the age of 13 with third parties and we do not sell or rent personal information about any of our users, regardless of age. In addition, GDC will not send any direct email offers to users who indicate they are under the age of 13.
As a result of the new Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) in the United States, we are required to prohibit children under 13 who reside in the U.S. from posting ads or using any of the other features of our site that require them to submit information via forms. This is due to the onerous reporting and verification requirements that this new law places on web sites that allow children under 13 to submit information via forms. Since we do not have the large, dedicated staff that would be necessary to comply with these requirements, our only option in order to remain in compliance with the law is to prohibit all children under 13 who reside in the U.S. from posting any information via forms on our web site. Therefore, children under 13 who reside in the U.S. should not submit any information via forms on our web site, and if you submit such information, you warrant that you are either over the age of 13 or not located in the U.S. and thus not subject to COPPA.
Updates to our information practices:
From time to time, we make changes to our information practices or alter the functionality of our web site. We always update this statement accordingly, so we encourage you to periodically review this page for the latest information on privacy practices at GDC.
Abuse of Terms of Service:
We may provide your personal information to the police or other investigating agencies to assist them in the investigation of any suspected violations of law. We also have the right to share your name and contact information with our attorneys in the event of serious violations of conduct.
Disclosure of Information:
As a general rule, GDC will not disclose any of your personally identifiable information except when we have your permission or under special circumstances, such as when we believe in good faith that the law requires it or under the circumstances described below. GDC may disclose account information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be violating the Terms and Conditions of the GDC products or may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) the rights or property of GDC, other users of the GDC products, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. GDC may disclose or access account information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it and for administrative and other purposes that we deem necessary to maintain, service, and improve our products and services.
If you choose not to register or provide personal information, you can still use most of the features of the GDC site, but you will not be able to access areas or use features that require registration. You also have choices with respect to cookies. By modifying your browser preferences, you have the choice to accept all cookies, to be notified when a cookie is set, or to reject all cookies. If you choose to reject all cookies you will be unable to use those services of the GDC programs that require registration in order to participate. GDC does not sell or rent user information to anyone. We will notify you at the time of data collection or transfer if your data will be shared with a third party and you will always have the option of not permitting the transfer. If you do not wish to allow your data to be shared, you can choose not to use a particular service.
Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online - for example in ads that you post or through email - that information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return. Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and/or any account information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you're online.
If you have any questions about our privacy policies or any other matter, please use the 'contact us' page on this site.
These "Terms and Conditions of Use" which form an integral part of the Agreement are valid upon execution by the user, member, customer or the customer's agents, licensees, members, clients, employees, associates etc. hereby collectively referred to as "User".
GLOBAL DIGITAL COIN (GDC) agrees to provide and the User agrees to accept the services listed in this Agreement and to pay all charges as listed on any Rate Schedules, as may be detailed in pages on this web site, as well as any and all other applicable charges as are specified in this Agreement. Most services provided by GDC may be prepaid. However, where appropriate GDC will provide monthly invoices, covering designated 30 day periods, which will be due and payable upon receipt. Where applicable, and when an invoice is issued, a late payment charge will be applied on balances that remain unpaid 30 days following the invoice date, in the amount to the lesser of (1) 1.5 percent per month of the amount of the late payment, starting from invoice date; or (2) the maximum allowed under applicable law. Questions concerning any invoice must be brought to the attention of GDC, within 10 days of the invoice date. If the User fails to notify GDC of any errors on the invoice GDC has the right to debit the User's account automatically for the amount of the invoice.
The User authorises GDC, or its nominated agent, to automatically debit the User's Credit Card, Debit Account or Prepaid Account to cover the balance due on any invoice for the entire amount debited in USD, Euro, AUD or any other applicable currency.

The User may terminate this Credit Card, Debit Account or Prepaid Account arrangement by notifying GDC in writing at least 30 days prior to the effective date of termination. GDC reserves the right to terminate this Agreement for any reason upon notification to the User. Branded GDC web sites may have differing arrangements.
Changes in the service:
Within 30 days of the execution hereof, GDC may notify the User of any change or suspension of services or changes of these terms and conditions. This notification will be endorsed on the invoice. The User's continued use of the service after this notification will be deemed as the User's acceptance of the change or suspensions of services or changes of these terms and conditions. Branded GDC web sites may have differing arrangements.
Dues and Rates:
International call rates, Communication services, Unified Messaging services, the cost of local calls, Credit Card dues and surcharge fees are subject to change without notice.
For some products or services GDC may require a security deposit to guarantee payment of any amount, which may become due. GDC may require an additional deposit in the event that the monthly service usage exceeds the amount of the initial deposit. This deposit is non-interest bearing and shall be refunded upon the User's written request within 30 days of cancellation of service. Any deposit balance remaining after settlement of any indebtedness owed by the User will be fully refundable.
All RSS service feeds are provided on an online and as is basis. GDC will not accept any liability for our RSS feeds.
Responsibilities, losses and thefts:
The authorised User understands and agrees that any GDC PrePaid services or cards are confidential and non-transferable and that the User is solely responsible for the use of the service and co-use of the cards, inclusive of any unauthorised use. In case of fraud, loss or theft of the card, the User must immediately notify and inform GDC.
The User may cancel this Agreement at any time upon 30 days advance written notice to GDC. Branded GDC web sites may have differing arrangements.
All services are provided on an online basis and thus have no return policy. Branded GDC web sites may have differing arrangements.
This agreement shall be construed and governed in accordance with the laws to be nominated by GDC. If any provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid, void, void-able, or for some other reason unenforceable, then, in that event, all of the other remaining provisions of this Agreement shall nevertheless continue to be binding and in full force and effect on the parties hereto. Venue for the enforcement of the terms and conditions of this Agreement shall be specified by GDC.
GDC does not guarantee the quality and efficiency of any services provided and the User accepts the service without any guarantees. Furthermore, GDC shall not be liable for any consequential, indirect, special, incidental or other damages whatsoever arising from any failures, interruptions or deficiencies of services provided pursuant to this Agreement. GDC liability for any interruptions, delays, errors, or defects in transmission, equipment or services provided to the User under this Agreement shall be limited to an amount equal to GDC charges incurred by the User for the period of service during which such circumstances occurred.
In the event the User is unable to access any services provided by GDC due to external causes (as an example, but not limited to, acts of God) the User could obtain international service through other service providers such as but not limited to local international lines. Accordingly, GDC shall not be responsible to the User for any damages or losses incurred as a result thereof. Furthermore, GDC shall not be responsible for any additional charges that any other service provider such as a local telephone company or hotel puts into effect on the service the User receives from his local company or any other vendor.
If a third party brings an action against the User for anything relating to services provided by GDC, the User hereby agrees to indemnify and hold GDC harmless from any liability thereon. The User shall also be responsible to pay any and all reasonable legal fees and costs incurred by GDC in defending any action filed by a third party.
Any notice required or permitted under this Agreement shall be sufficient, if in writing, and if sent by registered mail, certified mail, first class mail or hand delivered in the case of the User to their last known address as shown on the database, books and records of GDC, or any other arrangement by mutual consent.
If a party hereof shall retain or engage any solicitor or solicitors to collect, enforce or protect its interest with respect to this Agreement, the non-prevailing party in any court action shall pay all of the reasonable costs and expenses of such collection, enforcement or protection, including, and without limitation to, all reasonable solicitor's fees and court costs at the trial and appellate levels.
Successors and assigns:
This Agreement shall bind the successors, heirs and assigns of the User. GDC hereby reserves the right to assign or transfer any or all of its interest in this Agreement at any time without prior notice to the User.
