Data Collection Technology collects all sorts of information, such as how long you spend on various webpages in the Site, which webpages you view, your search queries, error and performance reports, as well as Device identifier or IP address, browser type, time zone and language settings and operating system.
Data Collection Technology deployed through the Site includes cookies and web beacons.
Web Beacons: A web beacon (also called a pixel tag or clear GIF) is computer code that communicates information from your device to a server. Some of InvestEdge’s content and emails may contain embedded web beacons that allow a server to read certain types of information from your Device, allow us to count the number of people who have viewed content, to know when you opened an email message and the IP address of your Device. Web beacons help InvestEdge develop statistical information to provide better and more personalized content.
Cookies: Cookies are small text files that are sent to or accessed from your web browser or your computer’s hard drive. A cookie typically contains the name of the domain (internet location) from which the cookie originated, the “lifetime” of the cookie (i.e., when it expires) and a randomly generated unique number or similar identifier. A cookie also may contain information about your computer, such as user settings, browsing history and activities conducted while using the Site.
The Site uses the following cookies:
Strictly necessary cookies, which are required for the operation of the Site. Without them, for example, you would not be able to register or log in for the Site that InvestEdge offers.
Analytical/performance cookies, which allow InvestEdge to recognize and count the number of visitors, learn how visitors navigate the Site and improve the Site.
Functionality cookies, which InvestEdge uses to recognize you when you return to the Site.
To learn more about cookies and web beacons, visit www.allaboutcookies.org.
InvestEdge also uses analytics services, such as Google Analytics, to collect Other Information. Generally analytics services do not identify individual users. Many analytics services allow you to opt out of data collection. For example, to learn more about Google Analytics practices and to opt out, visit www.google.com/settings/ads or by downloading the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
How InvestEdge Uses Data Collection Technology: Some Data Collection Technology is deployed by InvestEdge when you visit the Site. Other Data Collection Technology is deployed by third parties with which InvestEdge partners to deliver the Site.
Data Collection Technology helps us improve your experience of the Site by, measuring the success of marketing campaigns, compiling statistics about use of the Site, and helping us analyze technical and navigational information about the Site.
Your Control of Cookies: Some web browsers (including some mobile web browsers) provide settings that allow you to control or reject cookies or to alert you when a cookie is placed on your device. Although you are not required to accept cookies or mobile device identifiers, if you block or reject them, you may not have access to all features available through the Site.
Do Not Track: Some web browsers (including Safari, Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome) incorporate a “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) or similar feature that signals to websites that a user does not want to have his or her online activity and behavior tracked. If a website that responds to a particular DNT signal receives the DNT signal, the browser can block that website from collecting certain information about the browser’s user. Not all browsers offer a DNT option and DNT signals are not yet uniform. For this reason, many website operators, including InvestEdge, do not respond to DNT signals.
We use reasonable security methods to prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy and reliability, and to ensure correct use of your information. No data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be perfectly secure. Whenever you voluntarily disclose Personal Information online – for example through e-mail – that information can be intercepted, collected and used by others. As a result, while we try to protect your Personal Information, we cannot ensure or guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.
