At SharesVault, our most important asset is our relationship with you.
SharesVault is committed to maintaining the confidentiality, integrity and security of any personal information about our users. We are proud of our privacy practices and the strength of our site security and want you to know how we protect your information and use it to provide to you the service on SharesVault (the “Service”).
SharesVault stresses its privacy and security standards to guard against identity theft and provide security for your registration information and other data. We also re-evaluate our privacy and security policies and adapt them as necessary to deal with new challenges. 

1. We limit the collection and use of personal information

In order to use the Service, you need to register and in so doing, to provide a Login ID in the form of an email address, a password and your zip code. SharesVault makes every effort to allow you to retain the anonymity of your personal identity and you are free to choose a Login ID email address and password that keeps your personal identity anonymous. Additionally, in order to enjoy the full benefits of the Service you need to register as a Member, rather than a Visitor, and will provide certain, additional information in connection with registering as a Member. All information you provide as a User (whether a Visitor or a Member) is referred to collectively as the “Registration Information”.


Access to your Registration Information is strictly restricted to SharesVault employees and contractors, as needed, in order to operate, develop or improve the Service. These individuals are bound by confidentiality obligations. They may be subject to discipline, including termination and prosecution, if they fail to meet these obligations.
SharesVault requires a Login ID email address from you in the following circumstances:

  • Registration for the Service;
  • Registration for any SharesVault Communications;
  • The use of any Forums on SharesVault; and
  • To respond to any correspondence, such as emails or letters, from you.

 

2. Your Registration Information is kept private

SharesVault does not sell or rent your Registration Information.

SharesVault uses your Registration Information only as follows:

  • to analyze site usage and improve the Service;
  • to deliver to you any administrative notices, alerts and communications relevant to your use of the Service;
  • to fulfill your requests for certain products and services;
  • for market research, project planning, troubleshooting problems, detecting and protecting against error, fraud or other criminal activity;
  • to enforce SharesVault’s Terms of Use; and
  • as otherwise set forth in this Privacy Policy.

In the event that you access the Service as brought to you by one of our co-brand partners, through a co-branded URL, your email address used for Registration on the Service, may be provided to such co-brand partner. If your Zip Code is requested by us, we only use your Zip Code to improve your experience.

For example, SharesVault may need to determine the appropriate time zone in order to send you timely alerts as part of the Service.

3. Changes to your Registration Information

If your registration information changes during your subscription to SharesVault, you may update the email address and Zip code by emailing us atbizsupport@sharesvault.com and providing us with your new information.

4. Registration Information and Third Parties

As described in the Terms of Use and with your consent, SharesVault may from time to time connect electronically to third parties in order to provide certain features of the Service to you. Your Registration Information or other information is shared with such third parties only if necessary, and only where such third parties abide by this Privacy Policy.

5. Anonymous or Aggregated Transaction Data

SharesVault does not sell, rent or disclose your personal Registration Information. SharesVault discloses your Registration Information only to you and to third-parties who help SharesVault provide the Service to you.

  • Organizations approved by SharesVault who conduct research into consumer spending.
  • Users of the Service for purposes of comparison of their personal situation relative to the broader community.

Such information does not identify you individually.

This information may be used, for example, to alert you to software compatibility issues, or it may be analyzed to improve our Web design and functionality.


We may use third party service providers to help us analyze certain online activities. For example, these service providers may help us measure the performance of our online campaigns or analyze visitor activity on SharesVault.

We do not share any personally identifiable information about our customers with these third party service providers, and these service providers do not collect such information on our behalf. Our third party service providers are required to comply with this Privacy Policy.

7. Offers from external service providers

There may be separate products and services offered by third parties advertised by us on our site and through the Service that may be complementary to your use of SharesVault and these constitute offers or ways to save. If you choose to use these separate products or services, disclose information to the providers, and/or grant them permission to collect information about you, then their use of your information is governed by their privacy policy. You should evaluate the practices of external services providers before deciding to use their services. These third party Web sites may have different privacy policies than SharesVault and SharesVault is not responsible for their privacy practices. If you click on a link to a third party Web site, SharesVault encourages you to check the privacy policy of that Web site.


SharesVault may present links in a format that enables us to keep track of whether these links have been followed and whether any action has been taken on a third party Web site. We use this information to improve the quality of the offers and customized content on the Service.

SharesVault keeps these backups to ensure our continued ability to provide the Service to you in the event of malfunction or damage to our primary production servers.

13. Cookies and Web Beacons may be used to analyze site usage and improve the Service

“Cookies” are alphanumeric identifiers in the form of text files that are inserted and stored by your Web browser on your computer’s hard drive. SharesVault may set and access cookies on your computer to track and store preferential information about you. SharesVault may gather anonymous information about you through cookie technology on an aggregate level only. For example, SharesVault may assign a cookie to you, to limit the amount of times you see a particular offer or to help better determine which offers to serve to you. Please note that most Internet browsers will allow you to stop cookies from being stored on your computer and to delete cookies stored on your computer. If you choose to eliminate cookies, the full functionality of the Service may be impaired for you.


We encode our cookies so that only we can interpret the information stored in them.
Web beacons are images embedded in a Web page or email for the purpose of measuring and analyzing site usage and activity. SharesVault, or third party service providers acting on our behalf, may use Web beacons to help us analyze site usage and improve the Service.

 

14. Your information is secure and only seen by you

Your information is yours and only you (through your registration and use of your password) have access to your information on the Service.
We may use a combination of firewall barriers, encryption techniques and authentication procedures, among others, to maintain the security of your online session and to protect SharesVault accounts and systems from unauthorized access.


When you register for the Service, SharesVault requires a password from you for your privacy and security. SharesVault uses industry-standard 128 bit secure socket layer (SSL) encryption to protect data transmissions between your browser and our servers, such as your Registration Information.
You must log out each time you have finished accessing your SharesVault account.

15. We use authentication to ensure that only you access your account

Authentication is the process you go through on SharesVault to access secure areas of our Website. This process takes place when you log into your account, the two key components of which are your Login ID and Password.


With regards to passwords, we maintain strict rules to help prevent others from guessing your password. We also recommend that you change your password periodically. Your password must be 6-8 characters in length. You are responsible for maintaining the security of your Login ID and Password. You may not provide these credentials to any third party. If you believe that they have been stolen or been made known to others, you must contact us immediately at bizsupport@sharesvault.com to request a change. We are not responsible if someone else accesses your account through Registration Information they have obtained from you or through a violation by you of this Privacy Policy or SharesVault’s Terms of Use.
