Types of Information Collected and How We Use It
Involuntarily-Collected, Non-Personally Identifiable Information.
Voluntarily Submitted, Personally Identifiable Information
If you submit personally identifiable information (such as name, address, email address, and/or phone number) to us via an email from this site, we will use your personally identifiable information solely for the intended purpose for which it was submitted, such as in responding to a question that you have submitted, except as otherwise set forth below. We do not share your personally identifiable information with others for their direct marketing purposes. We may, however, share your personally identifiable information with our contractors, agents, or business partners so that they may perform services for us. We may also provide your personally identifiable information to third parties with your consent. In certain limited circumstances, we may be called upon to release your personally identifiable information in response to a court order, subpoena, search warrant, or to comply with state or federal law or regulations. We also reserve the right to disclose your information in response to suspected behavior that is illegal or harmful to other site users or any other person or entity. In addition, we may conduct research on users’ demographics, interests, and behavior based upon information you provide during use of our site. We may combine your information with information collected from other individuals to produce anonymous, aggregated statistical information that will not include personally identifiable information. We may use and disclose this aggregated information for any purpose.
How We Use Your Information Generally
We may use your information to:
- understand you and your preferences to enhance your experience and enjoyment using our site;
- operate, maintain, and improve our site;
- respond to comments and questions and provide customer service;
- send you information about our offerings and company developments;
- protect, investigate, and deter against fraudulent, unauthorized, or illegal activity; and provide and deliver products and services that you request.
Storage of Personally Identifiable Information
No data transmissions over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Consequently, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk. Once you have sent an email that includes personally identifiable information to EquitiesIQ, we will store the personally identifiable information you have volunteered in accordance with our internal policies. Visitors should be aware that it is not technologically possible to remove from servers each and every record of the information you have provided to EquitiesIQ. The need to back up our systems to protect information from inadvertent loss means that a copy of your personally identifiable information may exist in a non-erasable form or in form that will be difficult to completely erase.
Information Choices and Changes
Links to Third Party Web Sites
This site may contain links to third parties who may collect information directly from you. Each of the websites linked from this site have separate Privacy Policies and information collection practices, independent of EquitiesIQ, and EquitiesIQ has no responsibility or liability for these independent policies or actions and is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites, nor does EquitiesIQ make any warranties or representations about the contents, products or services offered on such websites or the security of any information you provide to them. Please review the privacy policies for these products, services, and websites in order to understand the applicable privacy and information collection practices.
Information that we collect may be stored and processed in the United States or in another country in which we, our agents, or our affiliated businesses maintain operations. By using this site, you consent to any such transfer of information outside of your country. The laws relating to personal information in the United States may not be as protective of your personal information as the laws of the country you reside in.
Merger, Sale or Bankruptcy
In the event that EquitiesIQ is acquired by or merged with a third party, we reserve the right, in any of these circumstances, to sell or otherwise transfer the information we have collected as part of such merger, acquisition, sale, or other change of control. In the unlikely event of our bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, receivership, or assignment for the benefit of creditors, or the application of laws or equitable principles affecting creditors’ rights generally, we may not be able to control how your personally identifiable information is treated, transferred, or used. Therefore, you should know that in such event, your personally identifiable information may be treated like any other EquitiesIQ asset, and sold, transferred or shared with third parties, or used in ways not contemplated or permitted hereunder, without notice to you or your consent.
No Error-Free Performance
This policy is effective as of July 1, 2021.
