Privacy Policy

Updated: July 25th, 2018

The privacy and the security of your information are important to us. This privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) explains the type of information (“Information”) we collect from the users of our website, www.netvest.com (“Website”), and the Netvest mobile application (“Application”), each of which is operated by Netvest Holdings, LLC (the “Company” or “Netvest”). The Website and Application are sometimes collectively referred to herein as the “Services.” This Privacy Policy also describes how Information may be shared with other parties, and what controls you have regarding your Information. Please review the following Privacy Policy carefully to understand our practices with respect to your Information. We may amend this Privacy Policy from time to time as we change or expand our Services. Because this Privacy Policy contains legal obligations you should read it carefully.

By using or accessing the Services, you signify that you have read, understand and agreed to be bound by this Privacy Policy. You are also bound by the terms of use (“Terms of Use”), which may be found at this link https://www.netvest.com/terms-of-use.

The Information We Collect.

You may enter the Website and browse its contents without submitting any personal information, such as name, e-mail address, physical address, phone number and other information that can be used to directly identify you (“Personal Information”). Our Services also allow you to create accounts and to register and provide contact information to us in order to use the Services, including Personal Information. Our Services allow you to track particular stocks and to follow the performance of “Authors” (also called “Investors”) in their tracking portfolios, including posting your comments to Authors’ posts in a public user forum under your first name and the first initial of your last name, or under your chosen username. You may also elect to donate to specific Investors, and your donation amount and username may be disclosed on the public message board along with any messages you submit. When you submit Personal Information on the Services you are doing so voluntarily and giving your consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your Personal Information as set forth in this Privacy Policy. You should not include Personal Information, including private or personally identifiable information, in any comments that you provide in our Services. The use and ownership of any information that you provide is further governed by the portion of the Terms of Use pertaining to “User Contents.”

As you navigate our Services, we may also collect information through the use of commonly-used information gathering tools such as cookies. These tools obtain standard information from your web browser, your Internet Protocol (IP) address, and the actions you take on our Services (such as the web pages or screens viewed and the links clicked). Although you can configure your browser not to accept cookies, this may make certain features of the Services unavailable to you.

We may automatically record your IP address and use it to help diagnose problems with our server, administer and improve our Services, and gather broad demographic information about users of our Services or for other uses that we may determine from time to time. This information is used on an aggregate basis to improve your experience. It also allows our staff to measure the number of visitors to the different sections of the Services, and to make the Services more useful to you. We do not disclose this information to third parties.

Use Of Information Collected.

We use the information that you provide, including Personal Information, to perform the services requested. For example, if you provide your contact information, we will use the information provided to contact you about your interest in our Services. We may also use your information to contact you regarding Investors’ performance or in conjunction with your application to become an Investor.

We may also use Personal Information for marketing purposes in conjunction with our Services. For example, we may use the information you provide us to contact you about your interest in our Services, to sign up for our Services after a free trial, or to send you other information about the Services.

Whether or not you provide Personal Information, we may also collect information regarding your usage of the Website (“Usage Information”). We use Usage Information to operate and improve our web site and to analyze which of our pages or products are most popular, the browser you use, and the URLs you visited before and after using our website.

Opting Out.

If you have provided Personal Information to us in conjunction with the Services, including information in conjunction with trial use of the Services, you have the ability to “opt out” from receiving further communications from us. If you decide to remove your information from our database, you can do so by using the unsubscribe link at the bottom of your emails.

Social Media Features.

Our Services may have links to various social media platforms, such as Facebook or Twitter. These features may collect Personal Information from your profile on the social network. By connecting to or from a social network the Website may also collect your IP address and information regarding the page you are visiting and may set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly. Your interactions with a social media platform are governed by the privacy policy and terms of use of the social media platform.

Do Not Track.

Although some browsers currently offer a “do not track (‘DNT’) option,” no common industry standard for DNT exists. We therefore do not currently commit to responding to browsers’ DNT signals.

Sharing Of Information Collected.

We do not permit third parties to collect information from users of our Services. We do not allow third parties to set and access cookies on your computer through our Website. We do not disclose personal information without your consent or pursuant to your instructions, except (i) to the extent required by law (such as in response to subpoenas, court orders or other legal process), (ii) when we believe it is appropriate to protect and defend the rights, property, or safety of our company, our users, or others; or (iii) as otherwise specified in this Privacy Policy.

We do provide your Personal Information, including credit card information and other information, to third parties to facilitate payments for our Services, including donation payments to Investors, and for the distribution of email communications. Processing of credit card information for payments is handled by reputable third parties. Netvest does not collect or maintain your credit card information.

Links To Other Sites.

The Services may contain links to other websites operated by third parties. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of the contents of such websites. Except as set forth in this policy, we do not share your Personal Information with those websites.

Security.

We have taken commercially reasonable steps to ensure the security and confidentiality of Personal Information against loss, misuse, unauthorized disclosure, alteration and destruction. Please remember that no transmission of data over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, we cannot and do not guarantee the complete security of Personal Information you provide to us through your use of this Website.

Children Under 13.

The Services are targeted to adults. We do not knowingly collect or solicit Personal Information directly from anyone under the age of 13. If you are under 13 do not send any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, or email address.

International Users.

The Services are targeted at and intended for visitors residing in the United States. Given the global nature of the Internet, however, the Services may be accessed by visitors residing outside of the United States. If you choose to access the Services from outside of the United States you do so at their own initiative and consent to the collection, storage, processing and transfer of their information in and to the United States pursuant to the laws of the United States.
