StockSelector.com's biggest asset is its registered members and,
therefore, it is extremely important for us to maintain your trust. So please be assured
that we will never compromise the personal information you provide us. This policy
statement tells you how we collect information from you and how we use it.
The information you provide for your personal StockSelector.com account may be shared among the StockSelector.com Community sites, as it is our goal to make your visitors to each of these sites easy and enjoyable. However, be assured that StockSelector.com will not disclose your personal information to third parties. StockSelector.com may disclose member information in special cases when we believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) StockSelector.com's rights or property, other StockSelector.com community members, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. StockSelector.com may disclose member information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it.
StockSelector.com does not give, lend, or sell individual information to others, only aggregate information. This aggregate information about our members is shared with advertisers, business partners, sponsors, and other third parties. The data is used to customize the StockSelector.com community and advertising to deliver a better experience for our members.
In case you change your mind or some personal information may change (such as your zip code), we will endeavor to provide you a way to correct, update, or remove the personal data you give us. You can do this at the member profile page http://www.stockselector.com/userprofile or by contacting our Member Services group at firstname.lastname@example.org.
By showing how and when members us our network, cookies help us see which areas are popular and which are not. Many improvements and updates to the site are based on such data as total number of visitors and pages viewed. This information is most easily tracked with cookies. We use the information from cookies to provide services better tailored to our members needs.
Financial or portfolio information is never maintained in a cookie.
An IP address is a number that's automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are on the Internet. StockSelector.com collects IP addresses for the purposes of system administration, to report aggregate information to our advertisers, and to audit the use of our site. When members request pages from the StockSelector.com network, our servers log the members' IP addresses. We do not normally link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, which means that the member's session will be logged, but the member remains anonymous to us. We can and will use IP addresses to identify a user when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with our community rules or terms of service or to protect our service, site, customers, or others.
When you register to join the StockSelector.com community for personalized services, we will send you information about using our community, information about various products and services we provide, or other information we feel may interest you. Only StockSelector.com or a member of the StockSelector.com community network will send you these direct mailings. These e-mails are handled differently than the portfolio alerts and newsletters we send and we provide the opportunity to opt-out of these emails at the time of registration. If you did not opt-out of these emails at the time of registration, you may do so at anytime by going to http://www.stockselector.com/optout or by emailing email@example.com. We'll remove your name from our lists as soon as we can (but it may take a little while). Information about unsubscribing from any portfolio alert or newsletter is contained in the respective mailing and/or in the instructions sent to you after you subscribed to the respective service.
The importance of security for all personally identifiable information associated with our members is of utmost concern to us. We exercise great care in providing secure transmission of your information from your PC to our servers. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, StockSelector.com cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online products or services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems. When credit card information is transmitted we use industry standard, SSL (secure socket layer) encryption.
Your StockSelector.com member account is password protected so that only you can access it and view the information relevant to the account and your portfolio. We recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. StockSelector.com will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or email. Ultimately, you are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and any account information.
Remember to log out of your StockSelector.com account and close your browser when you have finished your work. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence if your computer is accessible to others or if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place like a library or Internet café.
Links to other sites
Our members should be aware that when you are on StockSelector.com or one of its community sites, you might be directed to other sites that are beyond our control. There are links to other sites from StockSelector.com's pages that take you outside our service. This includes links from advertisers, sponsors, and partners that may use StockSelector.com's logo as part of a co-branding agreement. These other sites may send their own cookies to users, collect data, or solicit personal information.
Whenever you give your personal information to these sites, we cannot guarantee the security of the information. StockSelector.com's policy does not extend to anything that is inherent in the operation of the Internet, and therefore beyond StockSelector.com's control.
Your acceptance of these terms
