Information Collection and Use
Silfex collects information from our users at several different points on our web site. Silfex is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement.

Personal Information
In general, you can visit Silfex on the World Wide Web without telling us who you are and without revealing any information about yourself. There are times, however, when we may request information from you. You may choose to give us personal information, such as your name and address or email ID. That may be needed, for example, to correspond with you, submit an application for employment or to provide you with information. It is our intent to let you know how we will use such information before we collect it from you on the Internet.

Applicants for Employment
In order for job applicants to use our online employment application service, a considerable amount of information, including but not limited to name, address, contact numbers and work history, is required for the application to be fully considered. This information is used primarily for the purposes of determining the applicant’s suitability for employment with Silfex, but the Company reserves the right to use the information for other purposes consistent with this policy. Silfex will never reveal this information to anyone for non-employment related purposes.

Investor Information
Individuals interested in receiving information concerning investing with Silfex are asked to furnish name and address information. This information is received and retained by a third-party contractor and is exclusively used for the purposes of mailing a prospective investor packet to the requesting party. The information is retained by Silfex and the third-party contractor solely for administrative record-keeping purposes.

Use of Cookies
A cookie is a small data file that certain web sites write to your hard drive when you visit them.

We do this in order to determine the usefulness of Silfex’s information to our users and to see how effective our navigational structure is in helping users reach that information. Silfex does not correlate this information with data about individual users, nor does it share this information or sell it to any third party. If you prefer not to receive cookies on Silfex’s website, you can set your browser to warn you before accepting cookies and refuse the cookie when your browser alerts you to its presence.
