Brite Futures Privacy Statement
This privacy statement is applicable to BriteFutures.com

BriteFutures.com does not collect personally identifiable information about individuals except when such individuals specifically provide such information on a voluntary basis. For example, such personally identifiable information may be gathered from a contest or sweepstakes registration, the registration process for subscription sites or services and in connection with content submissions, community postings (e.g., chat and bulletin boards), suggestions, voting/polling activities and transactional areas.

BriteFutures.com reserves the right to contact a subscriber regarding account status, changes to the subscriber agreement and other matters relevant to the underlying service and/or the information collected.

BriteFutures.com reserves the right to perform statistical analyses of user behavior and characteristics in order to measure interest in and use of the various areas of the site and to inform advertisers of such information as well as the number of users that have been exposed to or clicked on their advertising banners. BriteFutures.com will provide only aggregated data from these analyses to third parties. Also, users should be aware that BriteFutures.com may sometimes permit third parties to offer subscription and/or registration-based services through a BriteFutures.com site. BriteFutures.com is not responsible for any actions or policies of such third parties and users should check the applicable privacy policy of such party when providing personally identifiable information.

Users also should be aware that non-personal information and data may be automatically collected through the standard operation of BriteFutures.com's internet servers or through the use of "cookies." "Cookies" are small text files a web site can use to recognize repeat users, facilitate the user's ongoing access to and use of the site and allow a site to track usage behavior and compile aggregate data that will allow content improvements and targeted advertising.

Cookies are not programs that come onto a user's system and damage files. Generally, cookies work by assigning a unique number to the user that has no meaning outside the assigning site. Users should be aware that BriteFutures.com cannot control the use of cookies or the resulting information by advertisers or third parties hosting data for BriteFutures.com. If a user does not want information collected through the use of cookies, there is a simple procedure in most browsers that allows the user to deny or accept the cookie feature; however, users should note that cookies may be necessary to provide the user with certain features (e.g., customized chart settings, the use of the BriteTrak portfolio tracking system, etc.) available on the BriteFutures.com Site.

Upon a user's request, BriteFutures.com will use commercially reasonable efforts to functionally delete the user and his or her personal information from its database; however, it may be impossible to delete a user's entry without some residual information because of backups and records of deletions.
