This website is intended solely for usage within the United States of America.
SmallBusinessEquityToolkit.com values its visitors, their information, their privacy and their trust. This Policy explains how we collect, use and protect information collected through our website. Specifically, this Policy applies to SmallBusinessEquityToolkit.com's collection, use, processing, storage, and transfer of information associated with the website (the "Site"). If there is something you do not understand about our privacy practices, please feel free to contact us at email@example.com.
Throughout this Policy, we refer to the term "Personal Information." "Personal Information" is data which identifies, describes, is associated with, or could be linked to an individual, such as a name, email address, telephone number, or the like. Personal Information does not include anonymous or aggregated data that can no longer be used to identify a specific person, even if combined with other data. Also, some of our customers are businesses, companies, institutions, or other entities rather than individuals. We do not consider Business Information, such as title, employer's name, work email, work phone number, work address, and other similar business information, to be Personal Information.
INFORMATION WE COLLECT
INFORMATION COLLECTED DIRECTLY FROM YOU
When you contact us through our Site to request additional information about our products or services, we will collect your name, email address, the subject of your inquiry, along with your inquiry itself so that we may address your question.
Depending on your activities on the Site, we may also share your personal information with the partners of the Site who assist us in providing you with our data, products and/or services. For more information on how these partners of ours collect and use your personal information, we suggest you inquire directly with these vendors and consult their individual privacy policies.
We may also use all of the information provided by you and collected by us, to send you information about products, services or updates to the Site that may be of interest to you.
Our Site is not directed to children under age 13 and we do not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under the age of 13. Children under 13 should not provide their Personal Information to us through our Site, in email, or in writing. If we learn that Personal Information belonging to anyone under the age of 13 is stored on the Site, we will immediately delete such information and refrain from using it for any purpose.
OTHER INFORMATION WE COLLECT
In addition to collecting information directly from you as described in the previous section, we also automatically gather information when you browse or view our Site. This information may include Internet Protocol (IP) address, browser type and language, Internet service provider (ISP), referring and exit websites and applications, operating system, date/time stamp, clickstream data, whether you are a first-time or a returning user, links you clicked on while in the Site, and your flow and navigation path through the Site. We use this information in a deidentified and aggregated fashion to make sure that the Site, and its associated parts, are functioning properly, that the Site is displayed properly for your equipment and software, and that we can provide you with information useful to you and your location.
There are "do not track" or similar browser choices available to internet users with respect to online web activity, but given the present lack of consensus of what constitutes an informed election, appropriate trigger or breadth of scope of such choice, our Site will not operate any differently when a "do not track" signal is received. In some of our email messages, you will find a "click-through URL" linked to content on our Site. We track this click-through data to help us determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications. If you prefer not to be tracked in this way, you should not click such links in our email messages.
We use technologies such as "cookies" and local storage so we can remember certain information about you, remember your preferences or recognize you when you return. They also help us compile aggregate data about Site traffic and Site interaction so that we can improve our Site and protect our Site from fraud.
A cookie is a text file that is stored on your computer. As text files, cookies cannot read information on your hard drive, run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Most browsers are set to accept cookies automatically. You can set your browser to decline all cookies automatically or to prompt you for a response each time a cookie is offered.

During your browsing session, we use "session" cookies to store information and monitor Site function. These session cookies are installed during your browsing session and are deleted when the browsing session has ended.
We also use log files when you visit our Site. Log files track IP addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP) identity, referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks. We utilize this information in our legitimate interest in administering the Site, preventing fraud, tracking website navigation in the aggregate, and gathering broad demographic information for aggregate use.

Often transparent, these images are part of web pages, and allow us to count users who have visited certain pages and to generate statistics about how our Site are used. They are not used to access Personal Information.
