Information Collection and Use
Our primary goals in collecting information are to provide and improve our services, features and content, to administer your VisualizeROI Membership (together, the "Service"), and to enable users to enjoy and easily navigate the Site.
Personally Identifiable Information
When you register with us through the Site to become an "VisualizeROI Member," whether as a user of the free service or the subscription based service, we may collect personally identifiable information, including, but not limited to, name, email address, postal address, credit card number, account user name and password ("Personal Information"). Personal Information is information about you that when on its own or in combination with other identifiers can be used to contact or identify you. We use your Personal Information to provide the Service, facilitate your use of the Site and respond to your inquiries.
We also collect the non-personally identifiable information that you provide as part of registration (e.g., without limitation, zip code, age, tax bracket, income level and investment preferences) ("Anonymous Demographic Information"). We may combine this Anonymous Demographic Information with aggregate information collected from other VisualizeROI users to attempt to provide you with a better experience and improve the quality and value of the Service. From time to time, the use of Anonymous Demographic Information will include providing you with targeted advertising as you use the Site such that you can have access to information and products that may be of interest to you.
When you visit the Site, whether as a VisualizeROI Member or as a non-registered user just browsing, our servers automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website ("Log Data"). This Log Data may include information such as your IP address, browser type, which and how many web pages you have viewed, search terms used, referring/exit pages and the domain from which you are visiting. For most users accessing the Internet from an Internet service provider (or "ISP"), the IP address will be different every time you log on. We do not use this information to identify you personally. We use it to monitor use of the Site and the Service and for the Site's technical administration. This non-personally identifiable information may also be used to administrate the delivery of targeted advertising and for measuring the effectiveness of advertisements.
We do not and will not, at any time, request your credit card information, your VisualizeROI ID, login password, or national identification numbers in a non-secure or unsolicited e-mail or telephone communication.
Identity theft and the practice currently known as "phishing" are of great concern to VisualizeROI. Safeguarding information to help protect you from identity theft is our priority. For more information about phishing, you may want to visit the Federal Trade Commission's website at http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/conline/pubs/alerts/phishingalrt.htm.
When you visit the Site, whether as an VisualizeROI Member or as a non-registered user, you will have the option to participate in VisualizeROI forum discussion groups and to post questions and comments on the Site for other VisualizeROI users to review. Please note that if you choose to participate in a forum discussion group you will be sharing your posted commentary and any Personal Information included therein publicly with any VisualizeROI user. Providing your Personal Information is voluntary and should correlate with the degree of interaction you want to have with users of www.VisualizeROI.com.
We may share Anonymous Demographic Information and Log Data with third parties for industry analysis and demographic profiling and the creation of reports related thereto. This information will not contain your Personal Information.
We may employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate our Service, to provide the Service on our behalf or to perform Site-related services (e.g., without limitation, maintenance services, database management and improvement of the Site's features). These third parties have access to your Personal Information only to perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to use it for any other purpose.
Compliance with Laws and Law Enforcement
VisualizeROI cooperates with government and law enforcement officials or private parties to enforce and comply with the law. We may disclose any information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate to respond to claims and legal process (including subpoenas), to protect the property and rights of VisualizeROI or a third party, to protect the safety of the public or any person, or to prevent or stop any illegal or unethical activity.
Changing or Deleting Your Information
All VisualizeROI Members may review, update, correct or delete the Personal Information in their registration profile. If you completely delete any such information, then your account may become deactivated. If you would like us to delete your record in our system, please contact us and we will attempt to accommodate your request. See below for privacy contact information.
Security & International Transfer
VisualizeROI is very concerned with safeguarding your information. We employ administrative, physical and electronic measures designed to protect your information from unauthorized access. Your information may be transferred to—and maintained on—computers located outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction where the privacy laws may not be as protective as those in your jurisdiction. VisualizeROI transfers Personal Information to the United States and maintains and processes it there and you consent to such transfer.
