Contact Information

Zacks Private may collect and store personally identifiable information about you including your name, email address, mailing address and other information that specifically identifies you. Zacks Private may also automatically collect (via cookies and other methods) and store aggregate or anonymous information about user contact with and use of the site. Examples of this type of information include demographics, the type of internet browser you are using, the type of computer operating system, the application software or peripherals you are using, the domain name of the website from which you are linked to our site and your browsing habits on and usage of the site. Non-personally identifiable information may also include personally identifiable information that has been aggregated so that no one individual is specifically identifiable (such as how many users in a particular city access the site).

Terms of Information Use

Zacks Private may use personally identifiable information we collect to contact you about our products and services or those of our clients or other third parties from time to time. We do not sell or share your personally identifiable information with the issuers whose offerings are displayed on the site unless you specifically request that you would like to contact a specific issuer. We do not sell your personally identifiable information.  We take steps to ensure that your personally identifiable information is not released to Zacks technical personnel not involved in operating our site or to technical consultants and other third parties who make our site available, enhance its functionality, or provide associated services directly to Zacks Private, unless doing so is necessary for the third party to perform their function. 

Information obtained in connection with the site may be intermingled with and used by us in conjunction with information obtained through sources other than the site, including both offline and online sources. We may share non-personally identifiable information with third parties for any number of reasons, including advertising, promotional and/or other purposes.

We reserve the right to transfer any information to our successors in business and purchasers of Zacks Private’s assets or a particular division or line of business. We also reserve the right to access and/or disclose information as required by courts or administrative agencies and to the extent necessary to permit us to investigate suspected fraud, harassment or other violations of the law, the site’s rules or policies, or rights of third parties or to investigate any suspected conduct which Zacks Private deems improper.

Cookies

We may use cookies and similar technologies to collect non-personally identifiable information from you and to customize your use of the site. A cookie is a small data file that certain websites write to your hard drive when you visit them. We may also use web bugs, clear gifs and similar technologies that collect data similar to that collected by a cookie. A cookie file can contain various types of information, including a user ID that the site uses to track the pages you have visited.

Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies; however, you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or indicate when a cookie is being sent or you can flush your browser of cookies from time to time. (Note: you may need to consult the help area of your browser application for instructions.) If you choose to disable cookies or refuse to accept a cookie, you may not be able to utilize all features of the site.

At times, some of our advertisers and their ad service providers set cookies when you click their advertising banners. While we use cookies in other parts of the site (as discussed above), cookies received with banner ads are collected by those advertisers and their ad service providers. The advertiser's privacy policy and/or that of its service provider will govern the use of information and Zacks Private is not responsible for the privacy practices of such advertiser or ad service provider.
