The following policies are in effect for the web pages, newsletters and opt-in announcement lists owned and operated by Managed Account Research Incorporated ("MARI Network"), which includes MA-Research.com and CTA-Info.com.
Technical Information Collected
Every computer connected to the Internet is given a domain name and a set of numbers known as the "Internet Protocol" IP address. Like most web servers, when a visitor requests a page from any Web Site within the MARI Network our servers automatically recognize and log that visitor's domain name, IP address, access times, referring web sites, platform, and browser type. This information reveals nothing personal about you other than the IP address from which you have accessed our site. We use these logs to provide statistics about our Web site usage in aggregate, to assist us in the maintenance, design, and operation of our Web site, and to investigate misuse of the MARI Network, its users, or to cooperate with law enforcement. We do not collect and evaluate this information for specific individuals. Our Web servers do not automatically record e-mail addresses of the visitors.
Information on Cookies
MARI offers access to services that are free but that may require registration. We will use your registration contact information to send notification of MARI products and services by e-mail and/or postal mail. We also may share that information with our affiliates and clients. Our affiliates and clients may send you promotional material that is related to the topic of the service for which you registered unless you have chosen not to receive it. MARI reserves the right to send to our registered members email notices and announcements that may be of interest to MARI users. TO NOT RECEIVE ANY COMMUNICATION FROM MARI, MEMBERS SHOULD REQUEST THAT THEIR REGISTRATION BE CANCELLED. We respect and will honor all requests to correct, erase, or otherwise act in our visitor's wishes in regards to the use of their data.
Email Announcements and Opting-out
We will most likely also request your e-mail address and other personal information for the purposes of providing additional services (for example, subscriptions to email newsletters or updates). Whenever we request the identity of a visitor, we will clearly indicate the purpose of the inquiry before the information is requested. You can unsubscribe from our newsletters or by following the instructions at the bottom of every email.
Through our Web site you may also subscribe to promotional announcements from our partners. Our site provides users the opportunity to choose or opt-out of receiving communications from MARI sites and our partners at the point where we request information about the visitor. For example, during our Free Report sign up for the Free Report on Trading we will ask if it is alright to send these promotional announcements. If you do not wish to receive the announcements you have the ability to opt-out.
Some advertisers we work with are interested in acquiring leads for their sale force by providing offers that qualify visitors. For example, a brokerage might provide a free book on trading in order to reach and advertise to that audience. (This is known as cost-per-lead advertising (CPL) or co-registration.)
With third-party offers user data is collected by our webservers and sent to the advertiser who then fulfills the offer. After data is sent to the advertiser we have no way to control how it is used because it has left our system. We always attempt to deal with reputable companies who respect user privacy but we cannot guarantee, or be liable for, any misuse of visitor data as a result of a third-party offer on our site. If you have experienced a problem with one of our advertisers, please tell us.
MARI and its advertisers may use single-pixel gif images, sometimes referred to as web bugs or web beacons, to count Web page accesses and gather some general statistical information. MARI does not gather personal information through the use of these images. Our advertisers may use single-pixel gifs that can track personal information from cookies that may have been previously placed on a user's computer by an advertiser.
Disclosure Where Required by Law
MARI will disclose personal information and/or an IP address, when required by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to:
- Cooperate with the investigations of purported unlawful activities or comply with legal process served on MARI,
- Protect and defend the rights or property of the MARI Network and related properties, or visitors to the MARI Network and related properties,
Security of Data
MARI uses reasonable precautions to keep the information disclosed to us secure. MARI reserves the right to transfer all such information in connection with the sale of all or part of MARI's capital stock or assets. Furthermore, we are not responsible for any breach of security or for any actions of any third parties that receive the information. We are not responsible for such third party privacy policies or how they treat information about their users.
