What Personal Information About Users Does tickerspy Collect?
We collect the following types of information from our users:
1. Information You Provide to Us:
We receive and store any information you enter on our website or provide to us in any other way. You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of many of our special features. The personal information you provide is used for such purposes as:
Registration: In order for you to use tickerspy services, such as submitting new links to the website or creating a portfolio, you must complete a registration form. As part of this registration form, we require your email address.
2. Automatic Information:
We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. tickerspy automatically receives and records certain "traffic data" on our server logs from your browser including your IP address, tickerspy cookie information, and the page you requested. tickerspy uses this traffic data to help diagnose problems with its servers, analyze trends and administer the website.
tickerspy may also add on any page display the total counts that page has been viewed. This includes member profile pages.
Social sharing of data: tickerspy allows other users to browse links that you have submitted or commented on, as well as original notes that you have submitted or commented on. This information is made available via your member profile and on the permalink URL of the story in which you performed the action on, as well as in other areas of the site. tickerspy may choose to post this data on other site features in the future.
Profile information: tickerspy allows other users to see the information within your member profile should you provide this optional information. tickerspy allows other users to see your portfolio, should you opt to make the portfolio public.
tickerspy Partners and Sponsors
Some tickerspy products and services are offered in conjunction with a non-affiliated partner. To provide you with some of these products and services, the partner may need to collect and maintain personal information. In these instances, you will be notified before any such data is collected or transferred and may decide not to use that particular service or feature. tickerspy may need to share non-identifying and aggregate information (except as described above), but not personal information, with such partners in order to administer the co-branded products or services offered.
tickerspy displays online advertisements. We share aggregated and non-identifying information about our Visitors and Members collected through the registration process as well as through online surveys and promotions with these advertisers. Additionally, in some instances, we use this aggregated and non-identifying information to deliver tailored advertisements. For instance, an advertiser might tell us the audience they want to reach (for example, males between 25 and 55 years of age) and provide us with an advertisement tailored to that audience. Based upon the aggregated and non-identifying information we have collected, we may then display the advertisement to the intended audience. However, tickerspy does not share personal information about its Visitors or Members with these advertisers.
Email Marketing From Third Party Sponsors
In addition, from time to time, tickerspy sends, on behalf of third parties, promotions via email to some or all of its subscribers. However, in no event does tickerspy sell or otherwise transfer to third parties the email addresses of its subscribers. tickerspy strictly maintains the confidentiality of its subscribers' email addresses. In addition, users are always given the opportunity of opting-out of these promotions.
Responses to Email Inquiries
When Visitors or Members send email inquiries to tickerspy, we use the return email address to answer the email inquiry we receive. tickerspy does not use the return email address for any other purpose and does not share the return email address with any third party.
Voluntary Customer Surveys
We may periodically conduct both business and individual customer surveys. We encourage our customers to participate in these surveys because they provide us with important information that helps us to improve the types of services we offer and how we provide them to you. Your personal information and responses will remain strictly confidential, even if a third party conducts the survey. Participation in our customer surveys is voluntary.
We take the information we receive from individuals responding to our Customer Surveys and combine (or aggregate) it with the responses from other tickerspy customers to create broader, generic responses to the survey questions (such as gender, age, residence, hobbies, education, employment, industry sector, or other demographic information). We then use the aggregated information to improve the quality of our services to you, and to develop new services and products. This aggregated; non-personally-identifying information may be shared with third parties.
It is tickerspy's policy not to use or share personal information about Visitors or Members in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses. However, tickerspy may disclose personal information about Visitors or Members, or information regarding your use of the Services or Web sites accessible through our Services, for any reason if, in our sole discretion, we believe that it is reasonable to do so, including: to satisfy laws, such as the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, regulations, or governmental or legal requests for such information; to disclose information that is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be violating our Acceptable Use Policy or other user policies; to operate the Services properly; or to protect tickerspy and our Members.
"Cookies" and How tickerspy Uses Them
Advertisers and partners may also use their own cookies. We do not control the use of these cookies and expressly disclaim responsibility for information collected through them.
tickerspy's Commitment to Data Security
Services and Web sites we sponsor have security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. While we make every effort to ensure the integrity and security of our network and systems, we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent third-party "hackers" from illegally obtaining this information.
