Stock Market Companion, Inc. shares your concern about the protection of your personal information online. This is our policy regarding the privacy of information we collect on our web site. We have recently revised our policy. Please take some time to review the new version below.
Information Gathered and Tracked by Stock Market Companion, Inc.
Stock Market Companion, Inc. gathers two types of data about users: (a) personal information, which individual users provide (i) when registering as a subscriber to one of our premium subscription services, and (ii) voluntarily at certain other points, such as surveys; and (b) tracking information, which is automatically collected about all visitors to our sites.
Stock Market Companion, Inc. collects personal information on our website, which is set forth generally below. We will always provide a secure area for you to enter your information, but if you prefer, you may talk offline to a customer service representative and provide the required information over the telephone or via email.
In order to subscribe, you’ll have to supply us with your email and postal addresses, home and business phone number, credit card information, and choose a unique User Name and Password. Additionally, you will be required to verify your email address by clicking on the activation link in the Welcome Letter that will be sent to you upon your submission of a completed registration form.
At certain times, you may be asked to participate in surveys, which are generally aimed at obtaining general information, for example, your investment experience or your reactions to a particular article. Because information obtained in these surveys is connected with individual subscribers and is used internally to better develop our services, participation is voluntary.
Tracking data consists of both individual and aggregated tracking information and is automatically gathered using “cookies.” A cookie is a small data file containing information, such as a user’s login name, that is written to the user’s hard drive by a web server and used to track the pages visited.
