Introduction and scope of policy

Buy Bitcoin Worldwide’s Cookies Policy (“Policy”) applies to your interaction with Buy Bitcoin Worldwide, BuyBitcoinWorldwide.com or any of its subsidiaries and affiliates (collectively, “Buy Bitcoin Worldwide,” “we,” “us,” “our”), at any online or mobile site or application that we own and control (“Site”), unless a different online and/or mobile policy is posted a particular site, or is made available to you and by its terms supplants this Policy. Other privacy policies may also apply in addition to the terms of this Policy. Please note that where we have another type of presence on a site owned by a third party, such as a page or handle on a social media site, that third party’s privacy policy and terms of use, rather than this Policy, will govern, unless specifically stated otherwise.
