Information we collect
SD Bullion collects information to tailor your shopping experience to you. From identifying your location and language to identifying product you recently viewed- SD Bullion’s shopping experience is unique to each user.
We collect information in two ways:
1. Information you provide to us. SD Bullion will require a user to register for an account prior to finalizing a purchase online. We may ask for personal information such as your name, address, and other general contact information. We also may require a credit card number to be stored on a secure third-party merchant gateway in order to insure we receive payment. The information is used to complete shopping transactions, optimize order fulfillment, and protect you from fraudulent activity. As you would expect from The Doc, sensitive information is secured using the latest encryption technology.
2. Information we gather from your use of our website. SD Bullion collects information using solutions, mainly Google analytics, which stores information by the way of cookies sent to your device.
How we use information we collect
Your privacy and the protection of your information is The Doc’s #1 concern. The information we gather is used to tailor your shopping experience to you while also helping us improve our services. By identifying your location and language, for example, we are able to customize the product prices to the local currency in your area. Additionally, by detecting the browser or way you are accessing SD Bullion.com (smartphone, computer, etc) we are able to optimizing your viewing width and version of our website.
When you contact SD Bullion, we may store record of your communication to help solve any issues you may be experiencing or help you complete a transaction. We may also use your email address to inform you about new services and improvements to our website.
