We’re glad you chose to visit the MINEXForum.com site created and managed by Advantix Ltd! We care about your privacy and the information you share with us and want you to understand how we are using and protecting the information we collect about you. Advantix is respectful of data privacy and adopts best practices in compliance with applicable privacy laws and regulations, including the EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”).
Use of this website
This website, and associated Advantix events and publications provide products, content, and services for a professional and consumer audience and are not intended for individuals under the age of 13 years old. We do not knowingly collect or store personal data provided by anyone under 13 years of age.
Third-Party Websites and Apps
Our app may contain links to other third-party websites or you may access Apps from a third-party site. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of these third-party sites. The API Client uses YouTube API Services.
We operate internationally and provide our Services to MINEX Forum users worldwide allowing them to communicate with each other across the globe. That means that your personal information may need to be processed in countries where data protection and privacy regulations may not offer the same level of protection as in your home country. We have put in place appropriate safeguards (such as contractual commitments) in accordance with applicable legal requirements to ensure that your data is adequately protected. For more information on the appropriate safeguards in place, please contact us at the details below.
Every now and then, MINEX Forum may send you updates about the administration and operation of the Service (for example, about your transactions, policy changes, technical issues, etc.). We may also send notifications about offerings by MINEX Forum or third parties, that we think may be of interest to you. If you do not wish to receive such notifications, you may adjust your system settings to decline them.
What information do we collect
Advantix collects data about you that is limited to the kind of information that can be found on a typical business card: first name, last name, job title, employer/company name, work address, work email, and work phone number. In some cases, we may ask you to provide additional professional information such as the size of the company you work for, and industry type.
To enhance and/or update the information that you have provided to us, we may combine it with professional information or personal data that we collect from third-party sources. The personal data that we refer to in this document is the personal and professional information you provide, as well as information that we obtain from third-party sources, both of which we typically combine as one user record.
Accessing, Reviewing, and Changing Your Personal Information

What happens if you don’t provide personal data?

MINEX Forum Network
This website is one of many that Advantix and its partners of undertakings operate, all of which we collectively refer to as the MINEX Forum Network. Where permitted by law, we may share the personal data we collect about you with another Advantix Network company so that we can provide you with information about products, content and services that might interest you, and for internal analytical and business development purposes.

How do we safeguard your personal data?
Security of your personal data
Advantix maintains safeguards which include technical and organizational security measures to protect your personal data from loss, misuse, unauthorized use, access, inadvertent disclosure, alteration, and destruction, and we require the third parties we contract with to support Advantix’s business operations to employ reasonable security measures as well (see “When and how we share your information with others” below).
We update and test security on an ongoing basis and restrict access to your personal data to only those who need to know in order to provide Advantix’s products, content or services to you.
Storage of your personal data
We may store your personal data using Advantix’s own secure on-site servers or other internally hosted technology. Your personal data may also be stored by third parties, via cloud services or other technology, to whom Advantix has contracted, to support Advantix’s business operations (see “When and how we share your information with others” below).
These third parties do not use or have access to your personal data other than for cloud storage and retrieval, and Advantix requires such parties to employ at least the same level of security that we use to protect your personal data (see “Security of your personal data” above).
What we do with the personal data we collect
We use the personal data that we collect to communicate with you, deliver what you request, improve our service, and to present other information and offers that may be of interest.
To communicate with you
We may use your personal data to send you important notices, such as communications about your registration, transactions, and changes to Advantix’s terms, conditions, policies, and/or other internal purposes.
To deliver what you request
We may use your personal data to provide the products, content or services you request. If you enter a sweepstake, contest, or similar Advantix promotion, we may use your personal data to administer such promotion.
To improve our service
We may use your personal data for auditing, data analysis, and research to improve Advantix’s products, content and services.
To present offers that may be of interest to you
We may contact you to offer you additional Advantix or third-party products, content or services that may be of interest to you.
The legal basis we have for processing your personal data
The GDPR requires data collectors, such as Advantix, to have a legal basis to use the personal data of EU residents. Therefore, this section shall apply to any such personal data collected by Advantix.
Advantix uses the personal data that you provide to supply you with high-quality products, content and services as you request, to send important notices, and for internal purposes such as auditing, data analysis, and research to provide you with the information you need to make the most informed decisions.
We may also use your personal data to offer you products, content or services that may be of interest to you, based upon your interests or the preferences you shared with us, and may share your personal data with third-party sponsors of content, events, and other services or offers.
The legal basis for processing your personal data is your consent. In certain circumstances, we may otherwise process your personal data if Advantix has a legitimate interest in doing so and Advantix is not infringing any of your rights and freedoms.
When Advantix processes your personal data for Advantix’s legitimate interests, Advantix will consider and balance any potential impact on you and your rights under data protection and any other relevant law. Our legitimate business interests do not override your interests.
Updates to this Policy
From time to time, as our services evolve, we may update this Policy. You agree that we may notify you about material changes in the way we treat personal information by placing a notice on the App. Please check the App frequently for updates.
