1. Collection of Information.
1.1 Survey Information. Global Investor Guide, LLC
collects information from individuals by various methods, including, but not
limited to, when an individual voluntarily completes a Global Investor Guide, LLC
survey, order form, or a registration page either online or offline, or by
means of online or offline surveys, order forms, or registration pages operated
by third parties (collectively, a “Survey”). (As used herein, “online” means
using the Internet, including the Websites, and related technologies, and
“offline” means by methods other than online, including in person, in the
postal mail, using telephones and cell phones, and other similar means.) In the
Surveys, Global Investor Guide, LLC or a third party (a “Third Party”) may ask
an individual to provide various information to Global Investor Guide, which
may include his or her name, email address, street address, zip code, telephone
numbers (including cell phone numbers and carriers), birth date, gender, salary
range, education and marital status, occupation, social security number,
employment information, personal and online interests, and such other
information as may be requested from time to time (together, “Survey
Information”). Global Investor Guide, LLC may also collect information
concerning an individual from another source and uses that information in
combination with information provided from this web site. Completing the
Surveys is completely voluntary, and individuals are under no obligation to
provide Survey Information to Global Investor Guide, LLC or Third Party, but an
individual may receive incentives from Global Investor Guide, LLC or a Third
Party in exchange for providing Survey Information to Global Investor Guide.
1.2 Third Party List Information. Global
Investor Guide, LLC collects information from individuals when an individual
provides information to a third party and Global Investor Guide, LLC
subsequently purchases, licenses, or otherwise acquires the information from
the third party (the “Seller”). Such purchased information may include, but is
not limited to, an individual’s name, email address, street address, zip code,
telephone numbers (including cell phone numbers and carriers), birth date,
gender, salary range, education and marital status, occupation, industry of
employment, personal and online interests, and such other information as the
individual may have provided to the Seller (together, “Third Party List
Information”). When acquiring Third Party List Information, Global Investor
Guide, LLC seeks assurances from the Seller that the Seller has a right to
transfer the Third Party List Information to Global Investor Guide, LLC and
that the Seller has a right to provide offers from advertisers to the
individuals whose personal information is included on the Seller’s list.
1.3 Other Information. Other occasions when
Global Investor Guide, LLC obtains information from individuals include (1)
when an individual is making a claim for a prize or seeking to redeem an
incentive offered by Global Investor Guide, LLC or by a third party, (2) when

1.4 Cookies, Web Beacons, and Other Info
Collected Using Technology. Global Investor Guide, LLC currently uses cookie
and web beacon technology to associate certain Internet-related information
about an individual with information about the individual in our database.
Additionally, Global Investor Guide, LLC may use other new and evolving sources
of information in the future (together, “Technology Information”).
(a) Cookies. A cookie is a small amount of data
stored on the hard drive of the individual’s computer that allows Global
Investor Guide, LLC to identify the individual with his or her corresponding
data that resides in Global Investor Guide’s database. You may read more about
cookies at http://cookiecentral.com. Individuals who use the Websites need to
accept cookies in order to use all of the features and functionality of the
(b) Web Beacons. A web beacon is programming
code that can be used to display an image on a web page, but can also be used
to transfer an individual’s unique user identification (often in the form of a
cookie) to a database and associate the individual with previously acquired
information about an individual in a database. This allows Global Investor
Guide, LLC to track certain web sites an individual visits online. Web beacons
are used to determine products or services an individual may be interested in,
and to track online behavioral habits for marketing purposes. For example,
Global Investor Guide, LLC might place, with the consent of a third party
website, a web beacon on the third party’s website where fishing products are
sold. When Joe, an individual listed in Global Investor Guide’s database,
visits the fishing website, Global Investor Guide, LLC receives notice by means
of the web beacon that Joe visited the fishing site, and Global Investor Guide,
LLC would then update Joe’s profile with the information that Joe is interested
in fishing. Global Investor Guide, LLC may thereafter present offers of fishing
related products and services to Joe. In addition to using web beacons on web
pages, Global Investor Guide, LLC also uses web beacons in email messages sent
to individuals listed in Global Investor Guide’s database.
(c) New Technology. The use of technology on
the Internet, including cookies and web beacons, is rapidly evolving, as is
Global Investor Guide’s use of new and evolving technology. As a result, Global
Investor Guide, LLC strongly encourages individuals to revisit this policy for
any updates regarding its use of technology.

LLC may receive information about individuals from third parties or from other
sources of information outside of Global Investor Guide, LLC including

Investor Guide, LLC will never knowingly collect any personal information about
children under the age of 13. If Global Investor Guide, LLC obtains actual
knowledge that it has collected personal information about a child under the
age of 13, that information will be immediately deleted from our database.
Because it does not collect such information, Global Investor Guide, LLC has no
such information to use or to disclose to third parties. Global Investor Guide,
LLC has designed this policy in order to comply with the Children’s Online
Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”).
1.8 Credit Card Information. Global Investor
Guide, LLC may in certain cases collect credit card numbers and related
information, such as the expiration date of the card (“Credit Card
Information”) when an individual places an order from Global Investor Guide.
When the Credit Card Information is submitted, such information is encrypted
and is protected with SSL encryption software. Global Investor Guide, LLC will
use the Credit Card Information for purposes of processing and completing the
purchase transaction, and the Credit Card Information will be disclosed to third
parties only as necessary to complete the purchase transaction.
