PRIVACY POLICY – GENESIS METALS CORP. (THE "COMPANY")

OUR COMMITMENT TO PRIVACY

 The Company and its subsidiaries (collectively hereafter the “Company”) are committed to maintaining the security, confidentiality and privacy of personal information in its possession. The Company has always respected your privacy and has strived to be an open and accessible organization. This Privacy Policy documents our on-going commitment to those individuals whose personal information the Company may have, such as directors, officers, employees, consultants, and shareholders. This Privacy Policy has been developed in compliance with British Columbia privacy legislation. This Privacy Policy is based on the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) Model Code, which sets out ten principles that balance the privacy rights of individuals and the information requirements of private organizations.

SCOPE OF POLICY

This Privacy Policy addresses personal information about individuals and does not apply to information collected, used or disclosed with respect to corporate or commercial entities. Corporate and commercial information is, however, protected by other Company policies and practices and through contractual arrangements. This Privacy Policy does not impose any limits on the collection, use or disclosure of your business contact information or publicly available information.

DEFINITIONS

In this Privacy Policy: “collection” means the act of gathering, acquiring, or obtaining personal information from any source, including third parties, by any means; “consent” means voluntary agreement to the collection, use and disclosure of personal information for specified purposes. Consent may be express or implied. Express consent may be given orally or in writing, if it is unequivocal and does not require any inference on the part of the Company. Implied consent exists when the Company can reasonably infer consent based upon your action or inaction; “disclosure” means making personal information available to a third party; “personal information” means information about an identifiable individual but does not include his or her business contact information. Personal information does not include information concerning corporate or commercial entities. It also does not include information that cannot be associated with a specific individual; “third party” means an individual or organization other than the Company and you; “use” means the treatment and handling of personal information by and within the Company. “you” and “your” refers to persons whose personal information the Company may have, including directors, officers, employees, consultants and shareholders.

ACCOUNTABILITY

 The Company is accountable and responsible for personal information under its control. The Company has designated the Corporate Secretary as the person who is accountable for the Company’s compliance with this Privacy Policy. Ultimate accountability for the Company compliance rests with the Company’s Board of Directors which delegates day-to-day accountability to the Corporate Secretary. Other individuals within the Company may be accountable for the day-to-day collection and processing of personal information or to act on behalf of the Corporate Secretary. The Company will adopt procedures to protect personal information and to receive and respond to complaints and inquiries.

PURPOSES

When collecting information, the Company will state the purpose of collection and will provide, on request, contact information for the Corporate Secretary who can answer questions about the collection. The Company collects your personal information for the following purposes: a. to manage and develop our business, including personnel and employment matters; b. to establish, maintain and facilitate responsible communication with you; and c. to meet legal and regulatory requirements. d. we may collect information from your web sessions by using cookies for the purposes of online advertising. We may enlist third-party vendors, including Google, to use cookies to serve ads on sites across the internet. At any time, you can opt-out of Google’s use of cookies by visiting Google’s Ads Settings. The above collection, use and disclosure are a reasonably necessary part of your relationship with the Company. When your personal information is to be used for a purpose not previously identified, the new purpose will be disclosed to you prior to such use, and your consent will be sought unless the use, without consent, is authorized or required by law.

CONSENT

The Company will obtain your consent to collect, use or disclose personal information except where the Company is authorized or required by law to do so without consent. The Company will make reasonable efforts to ensure that you understand how your personal information will be used and disclosed. Your consent may be express or implied, or given through an authorized representative such as a lawyer, agent or broker. You can withdraw your consent at any time, however, the Company may collect, use or disclose personal information without your knowledge or consent in exceptional circumstances such as: a. the use of information is for acting in an emergency that threatens an individual’s life, health or personal security; b. the information is publicly available; c. the Company is collecting or paying a debt; d. the Company is obtaining legal advice; or e. the Company reasonably expects that obtaining consent would compromise an investigation or proceeding. Consent may be provided orally, in writing, electronically, through inaction (such as when you fail to notify the Company that you do not wish your personal information collected/used/disclosed for optional purposes following reasonable notice to you) or otherwise. For example, oral consent could be expressed over the telephone when information is being collected; electronically when submitting an agreement, application or other information; or in writing when signing an agreement or application form. You may withdraw your consent at any time, subject to legal or contractual restrictions, provided reasonable written notice of withdrawal of consent is given by you to the Company. Upon receipt of your written notice, the Company will inform you of the likely consequences of the withdrawal, which may include the inability of the Company to provide certain products or services for which the delivery of that information is a prerequisite. If the information is required by law, the Company may decline to deal with a person who will not consent to the use of such information.

Some specific safeguards include, for example, the physical security of offices, and electronic security measures such as passwords and firewalls, and personal identification numbers.
