When will we disclose your personal info
We do sell aggregate information. For example, we might tell an advertiser that there are 120,000 registered users in a given city, but we will not tell them that John Smith is one of them, nor will we give them his e-mail address without his express consent. We may also use this aggregated information to help the advertisers reach the kind of audience they want. They may give us an advertisement and tell us the type of audience they want to reach (for example, gold investors in a certain area code).
Stockhouse Publishing Ltd. (or people working on our behalf under contracts and confidentiality agreements) would then take the advertisement and display it to users who meet those criteria. We may also disclose aggregate information (for example, information showing that 35 million of our readers clicked on a particular web advertising banner last month) in order to report on our services to partners, advertisers, and other third parties and the public.
With specific consent
We may disclose personal information in some other limited circumstances, but we will specifically describe them to you when we collect the information and gain your express consent, such as in the rules of a contest or a new service. For example, if we are going to give personal information to a contest sponsor, we will disclose it when you sign up for the contest, so that you can decide if you want to enter.
Disclosure for Law Enforcement
Under certain circumstances, Stockhouse Publishing Ltd. may be required to disclose your Personal Data if required to do so by law or in response to valid requests by public authorities (e.g. a court or a government agency).
Stockhouse Publishing Ltd. may disclose your Personal Data in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to:
To comply with a legal obligation
To protect and defend the rights or property of Stockhouse Publishing Ltd.
To prevent or investigate possible wrongdoing in connection with the Service
To protect the personal safety of users of the Service or the public
To protect against legal liability
How we keep your data secure
The security of your data is important to us but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Data, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
