The Information Wealthminder Collects

User-Provided Information:

You may provide to Wealthminder what is generally called "personally identifiable" information when you register, such as your name, email address, personal investment preferences, financial profiles and parameters which will impact your product selection.

"Cookies" Information:

When you visit the Wealthminder Site, we may send one or more cookies – a small text file containing a string of alphanumeric characters – to your computer. Wealthminder may use both session cookies and persistent cookies. A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser and may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the Wealthminder Site. By using these cookies, we can "remember" what you have done on the Wealthminder Site before and personalize our site for you. We link these cookies to personally identifiable information such as a user name, email address or geographical location in order to identify technical issues and track site usage behavior. These persistent types of cookies can be removed, but each web browser is a little different, so please look through your browser "Help" file to learn the correct way to modify your cookies set-up. Please note that disabling cookies may prevent you from accessing some of the functionality and site offerings available via the Wealthminder Site.

"Automatically Collected" Information:

When you visit the Wealthminder Site or open one of our HTML emails, we may record certain information from your web browser by using different types of technology, including but not limited to "clear gifs" or "web beacons". This "automatically collected" information may include your Internet Protocol address ("IP Address"), web browser type, the web pages or sites that you visit just before or just after the Wealthminder Site, the pages you view on our site, and the dates and times that you visit.

Our service providers use persistent cookies to make it easier for you to navigate our site and to help us improve the site experience. The use of cookies by our service providers is not covered by our privacy policy. We do not have access or control over these cookies.

Our Web site may include Widgets, which are interactive mini-programs that run on our site to provide specific services from another company (e.g. displaying privacy and security compliancy and user feedback systems). Personally identifiable information, such as your email address, may be collected through the Widget. Cookies may also be set by the Widget to enable it to function properly. Information collected by this Widget is governed by the privacy policy of the company that created it.

The Way Wealthminder Uses Information

Wealthminder uses the information that it collects to provide to you all of the features and services found on the Wealthminder Site. We may use your email address, without further consent, to market and promote our services to you and for non-marketing or administrative purposes such as notifying you of major site updates.

We may also use your e-mail address to send materials that you request or to which you have subscribed to (e.g. RSS feeds). Out of respect for your privacy, you may choose to stop receiving emails that you have previously subscribed to by following the unsubscribe instructions included in these emails or you can contact us at [email protected].

Wealthminder may use all of the information that it collects from you and our other Users to understand usage trends and preferences, to improve the way the Wealthminder Site works and looks, to improve our marketing and promotional efforts, and to create new features and functionality.

Wealthminder may use automatically collected information and cookies information (as described above) to: (a) remember your information so that you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you visit the Wealthminder Site; (b) provide advertisements, content, and information; (c) monitor the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns; and (d) monitor aggregate usage metrics such as total number of visitors and pages viewed.

When Wealthminder Discloses Information

Wealthminder may disclose both personally identifiable and aggregate automatically collected information to service providers to process such information on our behalf, as reasonably necessary to provide website hosting, maintenance and security, to offer certain features on the Wealthminder Site, to assist us in improving the way the Wealthminder Site works and looks, and to create new features. Service provider companies are authorized to use your personally identifiable information only as necessary to provide these services to us.

We may share automatically collected and other aggregate non-personally-identifiable information with interested third parties to assist them in understanding the usage patterns for certain content, services, advertisements, promotions, and/or functionality on the Wealthminder Site.

Except as otherwise noted in this Privacy Policy, Wealthminder does not share, rent, trade or sell personally identifiable information of Users with third parties for promotional purposes unless doing so is appropriate to carry out a User's request or it reasonably believes that doing so is legally required such as to comply with a subpoena or is in our interest to protect its property or other legal rights or the rights or property of others, in any case only as permitted by law. We do not share User information with other third-party organizations for their marketing or promotional use without your consent or except as part of a specific program or feature for which you will have the ability to opt-out.
