Collection of Information

Information collected may include (but is not limited to) your name, mailing address, phone number(s), email address, company or organization, financial information, demographic information, and more.
Even if you register for only the Service, your Information will be known to the Publisher if you access (or attempt to access) another Services of the Publisher (see “Cookies,” below). The Publisher may add other information collected from partners to enhance the Information that you provide to the Publisher.
The Publisher or its partners may place one or more online tracking technologies, such as a “cookie,” in the browser files of your computer. A cookie is a small piece of information that is stored on your computer; it can help identify your browser during interaction with the Service. The cookie(s) may be used to provide a more personalized experience, track your preferences, conduct research, assist in identifying fraud, track your historical use of the Service, limit your access to certain products, if necessary, and more.
Cookies may also be used to manage advertisements presented to you, should the Service ever include advertisements. These advertising cookies may be placed and managed by third-parties with whom the Publisher works. These partners may use information about your visits to the Service and other Web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. Cookies may also be used to collect Web viewing data to serve online interest-based advertising, also known as online “behavioral advertising.” You can opt-out of this behavioral targeting; for more information, please visit click here.

Below is the current Policy regarding the usage of Information collected by the Publisher. Once again, the Publisher reserves the right to change this Policy, and will post changes on this Web site.
The Publisher may aggregate users’ Information to improve the content, design, and value of the Service; understand how users are using the Service; enable its audit bureau to verify claims of the Service’s traffic and usage; and help partners assess the suitability of the Service and its audience. The Publisher may also aggregate user Information to understand more about the interests of users, and may use the Information to offer goods and services of interest to users.
Addresses, Telephone Numbers, and Email Addresses
Mailing addresses, telephone numbers, and email addresses may be used to deliver the Publisher’s products. They may also be used to promote other products of the Publisher’s partners, gather feedback, collect editorial ideas, conduct research, acquire other information related to the Service, and more.

Foreign Investment Watch is a subscription-based service that requires payment. Financial information, such as credit card information, is used primarily to verify credit and collect payments for purchases, orders, and registrations. The Publisher uses a third party to process credit card transactions, and does not store financial information on its Web site.
The Publisher uses personally identifiable information to deliver customized products to you. The Publisher may use partners to deliver email messages and other products. Your Information, such as email address, that is provided to these partners is only used for that purpose, and not for any other business activity. In order to comply with the Federal CAN-SPAM Act of 2003, the Publisher may provide lists of users who have “opted-out” of the Service or derivative products, to ensure they are suppressed from appropriate mailings/delivery. When you opt-out or unsubscribe from the Publisher’s products, removal instructions may be supplied to the partner or third party. Users who continue to receive products they do not want should contact [email protected].
In the event that the Publisher and/or Foreign Investment Watch are sold or transferred, all Information and data — including personally identifying information — will be transferred to the new owner.
The Publisher may also use or disclose personally identifying information if the disclosure is reasonably necessary to satisfy applicable legal, regulatory, or enforcement requests; to enforce agreements with users; to address fraud or security issues; or to protect against harm to the rights, property, or safety of the Publisher, its employees, partners or customers.
The Publisher takes commercially reasonable precautions to protect your Information. Always be careful when entering financial or personal information, and never share passwords.
