Privacy Statement - Please read carefully.
This Privacy Statement tells you how we protect and use information that we gather through this Discoveroptions web site. This Privacy Statement does not apply to the other web sites operated by OptionVue Systems or its affiliates. You should review the privacy statement posted on other OptionVue Systems web sites when you visit them. This Privacy Statement is intended for a U.S. audience.
This Privacy Statement was last revised on August 5, 2011. We may change this Privacy Statement at any time and for any reason. Significant changes to the Privacy Statement are discussed below in the Section called "Changes to the Privacy Statement." We encourage you to review this Privacy Statement each time you visit the web site.
Introduction. The information we receive, and how we use it, depends on what you do when visiting our web site. We collect and use your non-personal information (information that is not identifiable to you personally) differently than your personal information.
What is non-personal information? Non-personal information is information we collect through this web site that does not identify you as an individual person. It may include information such as the following:
- the type of web browser software you use (for example, Netscape Navigator or Internet Explorer)
- the name of the domain from which you access the Internet
- the Internet address of the web site from which you linked directly to our web site
- the date and time you access our web site
- which pages you have visited on our web site
- personal information that has been de-identified
If you visit our web site to read or download information, such as information about one of our services or products, we may collect certain non-personal information about you from your computer. This information is collected from your computer's web browser. If you only read or download information on our web site, we do not collect or learn your name, e-mail address, home address, or other personal information about you. We may place a text file called a cookie in the browser files of your computer when you visit. The cookie may be stored on your computer's hard drive. The information that we collect using cookies is non-personal information. You are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits, but some parts of our web site may not work properly for you if you do so. We will not allow third parties to place cookies on our web site.
What does OptionVue Systems do with non-personal information? Because non-personal information cannot identify you or be tied to you in any way, there are no restrictions on the ways that we can use or share non-personal information. We are always looking for ways to better serve you and improve this web site. We will use non-personal information from you to help us make this web site more useful to visitors. We also will use non-personal information for other business purposes. For example, we may use non-personal information or aggregate de-identified personal information to:
- create reports for internal use to develop programs, products, services or content
- customize the information or services that are of interest to you share it with or sell it to third parties provide aggregated "traffic statistics" and "response rates" to third parties
What is personal information? Personal information is information we collect through this web site that we can use to specifically identify you, such as your:
- telephone number
- e-mail address
In some places on this web site you have the opportunity to send us personal information about yourself. For example, you may fill out a registration form or an e-mail form.
You also may choose to allow us to personalize your visits to the web site, in which case we will ask you for certain personal information to make your visits to our web site more helpful to you. When this information is combined with the non-personal information that we collect through cookies (described above), we will be able to tell that you have visited our web site before and can personalize your access to our web site, for example, by telling you about new features that may be of interest to you.
How does OptionVue Systems keep and use personal information? We may keep and use personal information we collect from you through this web site to provide you with access to this web site. In addition, we may keep and use your personal information:
- to respond to your requests
- to personalize your access to our web site, for example, by telling you about new features that may be of interest to you
- to develop records, including records of your personal and portfolio information
- to contact you with information that might be of interest to you
- for analytical purposes and to research, develop and improve programs, products, services and content
- to remove your personal identifiers (your name, e-mail address, social security number, etc). In this case, you would no longer be identified as a single unique individual. Once we have de-identified information, it is non-personal information and we may treat it like other non-personal information
- to enforce this Privacy Statement and other rules about your use of this web site
- to protect our rights or property
- to comply with a law or regulation, court order or other legal process
Does OptionVue Systems ever share personal information with third parties? OptionVue Systems will not share your personal information collected from this web site with an unrelated third party without your permission, except as otherwise provided in this Privacy Statement.
In the ordinary course of business, we will share some personal information with companies that we hire to perform services or functions on our behalf. For example, we may use different vendors or suppliers to ship you information that you request through our web site. In these cases, we provide the vendor with information to process your order such as your name and mailing address. In all cases in which we share your personal information with a third party, we will not authorize them to keep, disclose or use your information with others except for the purpose of providing the services we asked them to provide.
We will not sell, exchange or publish your personal information, except in conjunction with a corporate sale, merger, dissolution, or acquisition.
We may be legally compelled to release your personal information in response to a court order, subpoena, search warrant, law or regulation. We may cooperate with law enforcement authorities in investigating and prosecuting web site visitors who violate our rules or engage in behavior which is harmful to other visitors (or illegal).
We may disclose your personal information to third parties if we feel that the disclosure is necessary to:
- enforce this Privacy Statement and the other rules about your use of this web site
- protect our rights or property
- comply with a law or regulation, court order or other legal process
