Privacy Policy

SmarterAnalyst collects personal information to provide you, the user with the best and most personalized experience possible and to provide us with an efficient way to reach the right audience. In short, by knowing a little about you, SmarterAnalyst can deliver more relevant content and special offers.

We conduct research on our users’ demographics, interests, and behavior based upon the information you provide us when you register or participate in contests or other promotions on our site, or based upon the information on our server log files. This research is compiled and analyzed on an aggregated basis. We may also notify you of products, services, or areas of our site that we think may interest you based on the information we’ve received. If you would prefer us not to contact you for these purposes, simply email info@smarteranalyst.com

We may ask for personal information when providing special features and services. You do not have to give us that information, but without it, you may not be able to take advantage of those products or services. For example, you may not be able to gain access to certain areas of our site unless you register and/or subscribe.

SmarterAnalyst is committed to protecting your privacy. The following statement describes SmarterAnalyst’s privacy policy as it relates to our services, including ad placements, advertising, marketing and lead generation.

User Information

Non-personally identifiable information is information that, by itself, cannot be tracked to a specific individual. SmarterAnalyst may collect non-personally identifiable information while you are visiting our site. With each advertising impression served, SmarterAnalyst collects information such as the time of day, URL visited, browser type, browser language, and IP address. SmarterAnalyst may use page content, form data and URL parameters in order to improve its service to the users.

As part of our on-going efforts to ensure the best possible experience, we may use any number of features, including Web beacons and cookies, to collect non-personally identifiable information. Web beacons, also known as clear gif technology or action tags, are small colorless image files placed on a Web page for the purpose of tracking the completion of transactions and the submittal of applications, which, in turn, enhances the online experience for our users.

Similarly, a Cookie is a file that the Internet browser places on your computer’s hard drive. It is not a virus and cannot erase your hard drive or otherwise damage your computer. A cookie controls the delivery rate of ads to Web browsers such that the number of times a Web browser receives any one advertisement is limited to ensure the best online experience for our users. A cookie also allows SmarterAnalyst reporting system to estimate the total reach of an ad campaign so that our advertisers can determine with greater accuracy the composition of the audience they reach.

Neither Web beacons nor cookies provide SmarterAnalyst with an email address or any other personally-identifiable information, and SmarterAnalyst does not and cannot use Web beacons or cookies to recover such information from the computers of our users. Again, SmarterAnalyst simply collects non-personally identifiable information for the limited purpose of optimizing the operation of SmarterAnalyst services, maintaining the quality and integrity of the services, and providing general statistics regarding our users. Although cookies enhance the online experience, Web users always have the option of blocking the use of the same by altering a setting in their browser. Please see your browser supplier’s Web site for details on how this may be done if you object to the collection of non-personally identifiable information.

SmarterAnalyst may place advertisements of third-party advertisers on our site. If you choose to click on an advertisement, SmarterAnalyst may provide non-personally identifiable information to the advertiser and Web publisher. From time to time, SmarterAnalyst may also send offers from third party advertisers via email that may be of interest to you. You may opt out of these offers at any time by following the instructions made available in the email. Furthermore, The subscriber agrees, by accepting the services/newsletter(s) of our site and/or reading emails sent on behalf of SmarterAnalyst, that this action will indemnify the publisher against false accusations of spam to include, but not limited to, payment of all damages, loss of web hosting fees and services, all damages for loss of business and goodwill, and any and all fees or fines that may be imposed against the publisher by any federal, state, local authority or civilian business entity as a result of the false spam accusation.

Submission of Personally Identifiable Information

When using services offered through SmarterAnalyst, you may choose to enter your name, contact information, and other personal information. You will have clear notification that we are collecting this information so that you can choose not to provide it. Users may also provide contact information while visiting smarteranalyst.com to request information.

Use of Non-Personally Identifiable Information

SmarterAnalyst may use non-personally identifiable information collected to improve the quality of SmarterAnalyst services. SmarterAnalyst may market its services by sharing Web surfing data with business partners in such a way that you are not identified. SmarterAnalyst also may provide your non-personally identifiable information to companies so that they can perform services for us.

Use of Personally Identifiable Information

SmarterAnalyst does not freely 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 SmarterAnalyst, we retain the right to provide that information to third parties so that they may attempt to provide you with additional information or special offers either directly through our site and newsletter email system or indirectly through the third party itself on our behalf.

SmarterAnalyst may use the personally identifiable information provided by users or business partners of smarteranalyst.com for internal purposes, such as sales, human resources, marketing, and administration (e.g., billing, newsletters and communicating with our business partners). We may share this information with third parties who provide SmarterAnalyst with administrative services. If SmarterAnalyst shares any of the information collected from you with a third party, their use of that information will be governed by the third party’s privacy policy.

Advertising Content

SmarterAnalyst’s services display links to other sites in the form of “contextual advertising.” SmarterAnalyst has no control over the content presented in such advertisements; third party advertisers provide them. The content of these advertisements is intended to show a high degree of relevance to the content you view. SmarterAnalyst parses the content of the URL visited, determines the relevant context and keywords and passes this information to the third party to obtain the advertisement to display.

If you have questions or concerns regarding this policy, you should contact SmarterAnalyst by sending email to info@smarteranalyst.com with “Privacy” in the subject line.
