CrowdThnk - Privacy Policy

CrowdThnk LLC takes your privacy and confidentiality seriously. Please read the following to learn more about our privacy policy.

This policy covers how CrowdThnk treats personal information that the company collects and receives, including user submissions, personal information, and information related to your market positioning data. Personal information is information about you that is personally identifiable like your name, address, email address, or positioning data, and that is not otherwise publicly available. The Privacy Policy relates to all products and services provided by CrowdThnk to our users through applications and services that run on a variety of sites, including but not limited to Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter and other third-party sites (collectively, the "Products"), and on the CrowdThnk website (the “CrowdThnk Website”), located at www.CrowdThnk.com. The Products and Website comprise, collectively, the “Site”. All information collected regarding positioning scores and inputs are considered confidential and CrowdThnk will keep this data anonymous and will not publish any individual or company positioning data.

The Site is hosted in the United States. If you are accessing the Site from the European Union, Asia, or any other region with laws or regulations governing personal data collection, use, and disclosure, that differ from United States laws, please be advised that your continued use of the Site will be governed by United States law, the Site Privacy Policy, and the Site Terms of Use. User information about you that we collect or that you submit may be transferred to, processed in, and held in countries other than the one in which you reside, including countries such as the United States which the European Union has deemed do not provide "adequate" protection for personal information.

Information We Collect

Non-Personally Identifiable Information. Non-personally identifiable information is information that, by itself, cannot be tracked to a specific individual. CrowdThnk may collect non-personally identifiable information while you are visiting the Site. While providing services and features, CrowdThnk may collect web surfing data such as your IP address through which you’re connecting to the site.

In the future, advertisements of third-party advertisers may be displayed on the Site (Website or Products). If you choose to click on an advertisement or link, CrowdThnk may provide non-personally identifiable information to the advertiser and/or web publisher. Also, the advertiser or web publisher may use cookies or other technologies to collect information when you are visiting their websites. The information advertisers or other third parties collect is governed by their individual privacy policies, not by CrowdThnk's Privacy Policy.

CrowdThnk's partners or affiliates may provide the Product through their website, including by framing the Product. To the extent the partner or affiliate collects information, the treatment of that information is governed by the privacy policy of the partner or affiliate, not by CrowdThnk's privacy policy.

Personally Identifiable Information. While providing various services or features, we may ask you to provide personal information. For example, if you choose to register at the Site, you will be asked to provide your email address. If the User chooses to sign in via Facebook or LinkedIn, all information collected will be kept strictly confidential. If you choose to create a profile at the Site, you may elect to provide information, such as your name, telephone number, street address, email address, age, gender, stocks of interest, and income range.

Another service provided through the Site Product allows you to invite a friend to Sign Up for membership. If you use this service, we will ask you to provide your email address along with your friend's email address. We will send one email message to your friend inviting the friend to Sign Up. We will not use this information for any other purpose other than for sending the invitation.

Use of the Information We Collect

Use of Non-Personally Identifiable Information. CrowdThnk may use non-personally identifiable information collected to improve the quality of CrowdThnk's services -- for example, by applying Big Data and Machine Learning Forecasting techniques to improve upon CrowdThnk’s proprietary positioning score. We will not utilize stock information provided by the user in any way other than to compile aggregate positioning data. We may also use the information to count and recognize returning users.

CrowdThnk may use user submissions, such as predictions, to conduct studies and develop forecasts, price forecasts, and stock ratings and reports, which it may display on the Site or otherwise provide to Site users.

CrowdThnk and its Users may use user submissions, and forecasts based upon user submissions, to generate forecasts. By using the Site and providing User Submissions and, specifically predictions, you agree to allow us to use the information to make forecasts and to provide statistics regarding the accuracy of your predictions to other users.

CrowdThnk may conduct research on the Web Surfing Data to determine user demographics, interests, and behavior and may market the Site by sharing Web Surfing Data with potential advertisers or partners. If it does so, CrowdThnk will share the Web Surfing Data in such a way that users are not identified and remain anonymous. For example, we may provide demographic or usage information to an advertiser so they may see how many registered users are from a specific geographic area or clicked on a certain ad in the previous month. CrowdThnk also may provide your non-personally identifiable information to contractors so that they can perform services for us.

Use of Personally Identifiable Information. CrowdThnk does not intentionally provide personally identifiable information to third parties except under the following conditions: If you provide personally identifiable information as part of an inquiry about products or services provided by one of the advertisers or partners, we will provide that information to that advertiser or partner so that they may attempt to provide you with information regarding the products or services about which you inquired. CrowdThnk may use the personally identifiable information provided by users or advertisers for internal purposes, such as sales, human resources, marketing, and administration.

Other Sharing of Information

CrowdThnk may release information when necessary to comply with the law or a court order or an investigation. CrowdThnk also may release information to law enforcement to protect its rights, property, or other interests, including those of its customers or users or to prevent illegal activities or violations of CrowdThnk's Terms of Services Agreement (available at http://www.crowdthnk.com/terms_of_service).

Because the Site may make available certain financial market data, quotes, price forecasts, other forecasts, news, research, predictions, recommendations, and opinions or other financial information (collectively "Information"), which has been independently obtained by certain financial market information services, financial publishers, various securities markets, including stock exchanges and their affiliates, investment bankers, and other providers (collectively the "Information Providers"), CrowdThnk reserves the right to share limited information of users, including, for example, name and address, to the Information Providers if the user is violating CrowdThnk's Terms of Services Agreement or an Information Provider's terms of use.

In the event that CrowdThnk, in whole or in part, establishes a partnership with another company, or is acquired by or merged with another company, collected information may be transferred to the partner or the acquiring or merging company.

Deletions/Cancellations/Updates

You can delete your account by clicking on the cancellation link on the Update Subscription Plan page (http://crowdthnk.com/subscribe), or by contacting us directly at info@CrowdThnk.com. CrowdThnk also allows users who choose to provide personally identifiable information on their profile to edit their profile to ensure that it is correct and up-to-date or set the privacy setting to public or private.

Child Protection

CrowdThnk does not offer services to, or target, persons under the age of 13. In compliance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, any information we receive from people we believe to be children under 13 will be purged from our database.

Security

CrowdThnk makes significant efforts to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the collected information. These measures may include the use of secure server technology. Be aware, however, that the Internet is not 100% secure. Therefore, we cannot ensure the security of any information transmitted to us over the Internet, and we accept no liability for any unintentional disclosure.

Some areas of the Site are password-protected. To increase security, please do not share your passwords with anyone.
