Our primary goal in collecting user information is to enhance your experience on our websites and to provide you with the services and products you have requested from us, regardless of whether such services are provided freely or on a paid basis. We use aggregated (gathered data across all user accounts) information to develop content targeted to users’ interests and to better the website user experience. The Company is committed to maintaining your privacy and, other than as provided herein or after receiving your specific consent, we will not share any personal information with any third party at any time, unless required by law or in order to perform transactions or deliver services on your behalf as a customer or user of such services, as more fully described below.

  • General information, such as your name, address, phone, and e-mail address to fulfill your requested service and to better serve your needs when you contact us or when we need to contact you.

The information you provide us can only be shared under limited circumstances. These include:

    We may share information about you, and the services you have purchased from us, among our various companies and subsidiaries, all of whom follow our privacy policies.
  • For legal reasons
    In some cases we may be required to disclose certain information to comply with applicable law, an investigation, or a legal process, such as a court order or subpoena. We may also share information about you if we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to protect the rights, property or safety of the Company, our customers or others.
  • In case of a sale of a business
    Your information may be transferred in connection with a sale, merger, transfer, exchange, or other disposition (whether of assets, stock, or otherwise) of all or a portion of a business of the Company.

Our Security Safeguards

We employ industry-standard physical, electronic, and procedural security safeguards to protect the personally identifiable information that you have provided to us from loss, misuse, or unauthorized alteration. 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.

You should exercise caution when deciding what personal information to disclose in a public setting.

Correcting/Opting Out

The Company offers its members the ability to correct or update the information we collected during your registration process online by utilizing the appropriate links at the bottom of all emails we send out.

You may also update any information related to any product or service you have purchased from or through the Company by logging into the website for such service and using the appropriate section of that website.

Advertiser Information

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 offers are paid advertisements provided by our external partners or external advertisers. If you click on these offers, you will be proceeding under the terms of that third party advertiser’s privacy policy and terms of use. The Company is not responsible for the content of or any claims made in these advertisements. Further, the Company makes no guarantees or warranties, whether explicit or implied, about what is advertised by our external partners or advertisers.

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.

Former Customers

We treat former customers’ personal information the same way we treat information about our current customers. The Company discloses personal information about former customers only in accordance with this Privacy Policy. Additionally, the Company will only contact former customers in accordance with CAN-SPAM and current federal law.
