As we update and expand the Site’s Terms of Use, this Privacy Policy may change, so check back to this page from time to time.

By providing Personal Information to this Web Site, you understand and consent to the collection, maintenance, processing and transfer of such information in and to the United States and other countries and territories, in accordance with United States law.

Personal Information

We may from time to time ask you for Personal Information, and we may collect certain information from your computer each time you visit our Site. “Personal Information” means personally identifiable information and may include, for example, your name; street address; e-mail address; SMS or text message address; phone number; credit card and other payment information; information that you choose to provide regarding your academic and extracurricular activities and interests that may identify you; and/or other information that may identify you as an individual or allow online contact with you.

Right to Opt-In and Opt-Out

You have the right to “opt-in” and “opt-out” of certain of our uses of your Personal Information. If you no longer wish to receive any marketing communications from us, you may request to be removed from our email list. You may send an e-mail to Privacy@PoetsandQuants.com requesting removal from the Site’s email distribution list to opt-out from our marketing communication and delete your registered user account on the Site. You may also do this by unsubscribing to any email communication you receive from us.

Please understand that if you opt-out of receiving promotional correspondence from us, we may still contact you in connection with your relationship, activities, transactions and communications with us.

We may allow third-parties to display advertisements on our Site. These companies may use tracking technologies, such as cookies, to collect information about users who view or interact with their advertisements. These third parties may collect information about whether you, or others who are using your computer, saw and/or clicked on the advertisements they deliver (such as click stream information, browser type, time and date, subject of advertisements clicked or scrolled over, etc.), and possibly associate this information with your subsequent visits to the advertised websites. Some of these third-party advertising companies may be advertising networks that are members of the Network Advertising Initiative, which offers a single location to opt out of ad targeting from member companies and provides information about this behavioral advertising practice ( www.networkadvertising.org ). You may opt out of our collection of data for use by third party ad companies to provide targeted advertising to you of our products as you visit other sites. Cookies are unique to each computer. Therefore, you must opt out separately on all computers you use. If you delete all of your cookies (specifically, the “Out-Out” cookie), you will have to go through the opt-out process again to reactivate your opted-out status.

  • Clear GIFs. We may use “clear GIFs” (a/k/a “Web beacons” or “pixel tags”) or similar technologies, on the Site and/or in our communications (e.g., in our HTML-based e-mails) which enable us to know whether you have visited a Web page or received or opened a message. This allows us to know the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns.
  • IP Address and Clickstream Data. We automatically collect information from your browser when you visit our Site. This information includes your IP address, your browser type and language, access times, the content of any undeleted cookies that your browser previously accepted from us and the referring website address.

We may use your Personal Information to:

  • provide you with product and service offerings,

Aggregated and non-Personal Information

We may share non-Personal Information we collect under any of the above circumstances. We may also share it with other companies and third parties to develop and deliver targeted advertising on our websites and on websites of third parties, and to analyze and report on advertising you see.

We also may share aggregated, non-Personal Information with third parties, including advisors, advertisers and investors, for the purpose of conducting general business analysis.

Your Access Rights

You may review and correct the Personal Information that is accessible to you in your user account on this Site by visiting the “My Profile” area of your account on any Site hosted by C-Change Media for which you are a registered user.

You may only use the Site if you’re over the age at which you can provide consent to data processing under the laws of your country. Regardless of local laws, children under 13 aren’t allowed to use the Site. If you are a parent and you learn that your child is using the Site, and you don’t want them to, please get in touch with our General Manager. Or email us at Privacy@PoetsandQuants.com.

We do not verify and track parental consent – so unfortunately, if you’re below the age at which you can provide consent in your country, you aren’t entitled to use the Site.

Third Party “Linked-To” Web Sites

When you are on our Site you may be able to visit or link to other sites not operated by us. We do not control such sites and we are not responsible for the information practices of these sites. This Privacy Policy does not address the information practices of those other websites, and we encourage you to read the posted privacy policies of such sites.

Legally Compelled Disclosures

We may disclose user information when compelled to do so by government authorities or otherwise as required or permitted by law, such as to respond to court orders and subpoenas. We also may disclose user information when we have reason to believe that someone is causing injury to or interfering with our rights or property, other customers or users of the Site, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities.

Business Transfer

In the event that C-Change Media, a portion of its business, or one or more of its divisions, is acquired by one or more third parties as a result of an acquisition, merger, sale, reorganization, consolidation or liquidation, Personal Information may be one of the transferred assets.

Security

When you contribute to a public area or feature of our Site, such as a chat room, bulletin board, list serve, blog, wiki or other open forum, the information that you submit will be made available to the public. Therefore, we recommend that you do not submit any sensitive information to such areas of our Site, including your full name, home address, phone number, financial information or any other information that would enable other users to locate you or contact you.

Users should also take care with how they handle and disclose their Personal Information and should avoid sending Personal Information through insecure email, SMS messaging or similar communications. Please refer to the Federal Trade Commission’s website at http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/menus/consumer/data.shtm for information about how to protect yourself against identity theft.

Data Transfers

To provide access to the Site, we may transfer your information to C-Change Media servers in the United States or other countries.  When we transfer information from the European Economic Area (“EEA”) to countries that have not been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection, we employ data processing agreements based on the Standard Contractual Clauses to help ensure that your data is protected wherever it is transferred. You may request a copy of these clauses by contacting us at Privacy@PoetsandQuants.com.
