The Information Wealthminder Collects
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.
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.
