Collection of Information
This site collects IP addresses and/or domain names anytime a page is requested from the server. This information is used solely in the aggregate to analyze site traffic. The URL of a referring Web page also may be logged for the same purpose. Any information given by the site visitor in a Web form is collected to perform the services offered at the site.
Partners, Sponsors and Links
This site may provide links to third-party websites, including those of our business partners. These independent sites have their own privacy and information collection practices. We have no responsibility or liability for these independent policies, and encourage you review the sites' privacy policies to understand how they might collect and use personally identifiable information.
We operate our sites in compliance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act and will not knowingly collect or use personally-identifiable information from anyone under 13 years of age. In the event that we learn we have collected any personal information from a child under the age of 13 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information from our database as quickly as possible.
Use of Information
We use personally-identifiable information that you give us to communicate with you about important product updates or information and provide you with requested products and services.
New Products and Services
We compile and use relevant information, personally-identifiable or not, so that we may design, customize, and offer to you new products and services from STI or its affiliates that may be of interest. While we will only offer to you new products and services we believe you will truly value, you may "opt-out" of receiving such communications from us, as described below under "Customer Choice."
On occasion, we will partner with third parties for marketing purposes to provide special offers, products or services to you. We may share (provide and receive) personally-identifiable offline and online contact information with such bona fide partners, holding them to the same privacy standards detailed here. While we will carefully screen all such offers, products and services and believe they will be of interest to you, you will be able to "opt-out" of receiving such third-party communications, as described below under "Customer Choice."
We may otherwise disclose your personal information only as required by applicable law or regulatory authority, or in response to legal process to protect our rights and property, or to protect the safety of our users or others.
As our business continues to develop and grow, we may enter transactions to buy or sell certain assets. In such transactions, customer information is generally one of the transferred business assets to which the purchasing company will have full access and rights of use.
We take the security of your personal information very seriously and are constantly improving our efforts to protect it. We use encryption methods so that each transaction takes place in the most secure environment possible. Encryption is the method by which your personal information, such as your credit card number, is scrambled and encoded while traveling through cyberspace. Once it has safely reached our secure internal environment, we decode the information to complete your transaction. We store information you provide us on our secure servers. Access to all of our users' information is restricted only to company representatives who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, a billing clerk or a customer service representative). No electronic communication over the Internet, however, can be guaranteed to be completely secure. Though we take great care to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you submit to us, and you do so at your own risk. We do not share your credit card number with other parties, other than those involved with the administration of your subscription.
By using our site, you agree to receive all communication directly related to your already-purchased products or services. In addition, we're always looking for ways to serve you better, including, from time to time, offering you new products and services that we believe you will find valuable.
You, however, will decide what types of such marketing messages you agree to receive. When your register with our website, you must indicate if you agree to receive promotional and/or marketing information about new products, services, and offerings from us and/or any third parties. You also at any time can update or correct any of the personally-identifiable information that you shared with us during registration - including communication preferences.
We will try to implement requests within a reasonable time, although for a time users may continue to receive communications transmitted based on information released prior to the implementation of the request.
By attending the Value Investing Congress, you grant STI the permission to use any pictures or videos in which you may appear without prior consent. These materials are used purely for promotional purposes and will not be used to degrade or defame any individual.
If at any time you would like to be omitted from such materials you may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We may change this policy statement at any time, but will notify you in advance of any material changes. Your continued use means that you accept any new or modified terms and conditions. You agree to indemnify and hold us harmless from any actions, claims, proceedings, or liabilities arising out of your violation of these terms and conditions.
