INFORMATION WE COLLECT ABOUT YOU AND HOW WE USE IT
ValueWalk LLC respects your right to privacy. Visitors should be aware that each time they visit a website two general levels of information about their visit can be retained. The first level comprises statistical and other analytical information collected on an aggregate and non-individual specific basis of all browsers who visit the site, and the second is information which is personal or particular to a specific visitor who knowingly chooses to provide that information.
The statistical and analytical information provides us with general and not individually specific information about the number of people who visit this website; the number of people who return to this site; the pages that they visit; where they were before they came to this site and the page in the site at which they exited. This information helps us monitor traffic on our website so that we can manage the site’s capacity and efficiency. It also helps us to understand which parts of this site are most popular, and generally to assess user behavior and characteristics in order to measure interest in and use of the various areas of the site.
If you sign up for our free newsletter we send you our content on a daily or weekly basis depending on your choice. We also (infrequently) send out third party offers which you can opt out of at any time. We also ocassionally send “blasts” about our own products like Hidden Value Stocks. You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time you wish and you will never be contacted again. ESPs provide a lot of data but we use it to view general trends not to track individuals even by IP address.
For paying members we do not collect payment info. We do collect basic info like your name and email and paypal sometimes collects your address. Anything you add is voluntary and we do not sell it to anyone nor use information except to view general trends like are people buying our products. You can delete your profile at any time.
Advertisers like Google collect cookies which tracks IP address and other stats– we use the information to track general trends for example are our readers coming from US, Canada, UK or elsewhere to generally choose advertisers or what type of content to run for the site. There is no individual information attached to the cookies (at least which we can see), the closest it gets is IP addresses.
We try to delete any information you request but cannot guarantee it unless required by law to do so.
All data could be used internally by ValueWalk employees for administrative purposes only.

A cookie is a small text file which is sent to your computer or mobile device (referred to in this policy as a “device”) by the web server so that a website can remember some information about your browsing activity on the Website.
First party cookies are created by the website that you are visiting. A third-party cookie is frequently used in behavioral advertising and analytics and is created by a domain other than the website you are visiting. Third-party cookies, tags, pixels, beacons and other similar technologies (collectively, “Tags”) may be placed on the Website to monitor interaction with advertising content and to target and optimize advertising. Each internet browser has functionality so that you can block both first and third-party cookies and clear your browser’s cache. The “help” feature of the menu bar on most browsers will tell you how to stop accepting new cookies, how to receive notification of new cookies, how to disable existing cookies and how to clear your browser’s cache. For more information about cookies and how to disable them, you can consult the information at All About Cookies.
Without cookies you may not be able to take full advantage of the Website content and features. Please note that rejecting cookies does not mean that you will no longer see ads when you visit our Site. In the event you opt-out, you will still see non-personalized advertisements on the Website.
The Website collects the following data using a cookie when serving personalized ads:

This data includes usage data, cookie information, device information, information about interactions between users and advertisements and websites, geolocation data, traffic data, and information about a visitor’s referral source to a particular website.
