Whenever we prompt you to transmit sensitive information to us through the Company’s Websites, such as a credit card number, we support encryption of your data as it is transmitted.
The Company may make chat rooms, forums, message boards, and online and telephone webinars and conference calls available to our users.

The Company derives a portion of its revenue from advertising and sharing information is essential to keeping our services affordable to users. In order to attract and retain advertisers we use the aggregated, anonymous information that we gather (as well as information from third party market researchers) to describe our services to partners and to assist our advertisers and sponsors to better understand our audience. We do not disclose personally identifying information about our users to these parties.
These advertisements may contain information about specific stocks or other investments, but the opinions provided in these advertisements are not those of the Company and are neither an offer nor a recommendation to buy or sell any security. The Company has not independently verified the validity of the claims or statements contained in these advertisements/emails. We urge you to always conduct your own research and due diligence and obtain professional advice before making any investment decisions. The Company will not be liable for any loss or damage caused by a reader’s reliance on information obtained in advertisements or corresponding web sites.
Although the Company attempts to accept advertisements from responsible third party advertisers, we make no representations or guarantees about such third parties. Such third party advertisers are separate and distinct from the Company and the Company is not responsible or liable for any action or omission by the third party advertiser if you choose to register with or enter into a transaction with any third party advertiser based on an advertisement or offer found on any of the Company’s Websites, within any of the Company’s email message, or via any other delivery method (including, but not limited to, postal mail).
We respect the privacy of our users, registrants and subscribers and shall not disclose or distribute our user list to any third party, nor shall we permit anyone else to do so. However, we may send messages on behalf of our third party advertisers to our users, registrants and subscribers. It is important to note, however, that these advertisers never see your actual email address. They may be able to use tracking software to reveal your email address if you choose to click a link in the email message.
We only transmit your information to a third party advertiser if you elect to receive a special offer from that advertiser through our co-registration service (either by selecting or by leaving selected the check box next to the advertiser’s offer). The information we transmit in this instance may include, but is not limited to, your name, email address, postal address, phone number, IP address and the date you registered for the third party offer. We may also transmit information about our visitors and subscribers collected through the registration process as well as through any online surveys we may conduct.
The Company’s Websites contain links to other websites that are not owned or operated by the Company. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or content of such websites. We strongly encourage you to be aware when you leave the Company’s Websites or click a link in our email messages and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies only to information collected by us.
