Information We Gather and How We Use It
We collect certain information from you in order to provide you with the most interesting and useful Web site possible.
We use your IP address to identify you, to gather demographic information that helps us understand how you and our other customers use our Web site, and to administer our Web site.
Our registration form requires you to give us contact information (like your name, phone number and email address), demographic information (like your zip code and occupation) and profile information (like your investment experience). We use your contact information to contact you about the services on our site, in which you have expressed interest, to send you newsletters from SombreroTime. You may opt-out of receiving these types of communications at any time, please see our “Choice/Opt-out” Section below. We also collect your credit card number and expiration date. We use this information to bill you for the services you have signed up for.
We may conduct or sponsor surveys and contests on our Web site. If you elect to participate, we may ask you for contact, demographic and other information as part of these offerings. We would use this information to analyze and report on the results of surveys, to provide you with the results of the surveys and contests. Participation in surveys and contests is completely voluntary.
If you choose to use our referral service to invite a friend to our site, we will ask you for your friend’s name and email address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the site. SombreroTime stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email and tracking the success of our referral program.
Your friend may contact us at email@example.com to request that we remove this information from our database.
You can import contacts from your Outlook or other email account address book to invite them to become members of our site. We collect the username and password for the email account you wish to import your contacts from and will only use it for that purpose.
Information We May Disclose
We currently do not have advertisers, but if we do, we would share demographic, profile and other general information about you and our other customers with our advertisers on an aggregate basis. This means that we may tell our advertisers general information about the characteristics of our customer base such as how many visitors and registered users we have within a certain postal code, but we do not specifically identify a particular visitor or provide his or her contact information to our advertisers.
Disclosures Permitted by Law
We provide the information (such as your name, email address, mailing address and credit card information) on a confidential basis to nonaffiliated companies we engage as contractors or agents to perform services for us, such as maintaining software, sending direct mail, credit card processing, and Paypal. Information will be shared with such contractors only to the extent reasonably necessary for them to perform services on our behalf, and pursuant to confidentiality obligations;
We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our Web site.
Disclosures for Joint Marketing and Servicing
SombreroTime may disclose all the information we collect as described above to other companies such as direct marketers to perform marketing services on our behalf, or to financial institutions, such as banks, insurance companies and securities broker-dealers, with whom we have joint marketing agreements.
