A Guide To How We Use and Protect User Information Our Pledge To You
Protecting your privacy and safeguarding your personal information is one of our highest priorities. The following Privacy Statement explains how we collect and protect your information. By using the QuoteTracker software (the “Software”), you give your consent to the collection and use of personal information as explained in this statement.
Why do we gather information?
There are several very important purposes. They all relate to providing you the optimum internet trading experience. We collect information required to establish you as a registered user of the Software and enable you to transact business effectively. But we also continually strive to improve our services and provide you opportunities to use additional products and services you may find of interest. To do this, we may gather information to help us assess your needs and preferences. This may include conducting surveys that ask you to provide demographic information and other means to aid us in anticipating your needs and satisfying your requests.
What information do we collect?
The information we collect directly from you includes information required to communicate with you, specifically including your email address, and to identify you as a user of the Software.
We may also collect demographic information when you register for the Software or request information on other products.
How do we use your personal information?
Again, protecting your privacy and safeguarding your personal information is one of our highest priorities. Therefore we use personal information only as appropriate to provide you quality service and security.
For example, we may use the information collected from you to verify your contact information. We may use your information to contact you about additional goods and services that may be of interest to you. We may also use demographic information so that we can develop products and services for our users.
Should you discontinue use of the Software, we will retain your information, but only use it to comply with applicable regulatory requirements and to periodically contact you to offer you the opportunity to reactivate your use of the Software or participate in other product or service offerings.
What information do we share with our affiliates?
We may share information with affiliates if the information is required to provide a product or service you have requested or to provide you the opportunity to participate in the products or services our affiliates offer. Information shared may include email address, name, demographic information and other information you provide to us.
An affiliate is a company that we own or control or with which there is common ownership with us and our parent company. An example is our broker-dealer affiliate, TD Ameritrade, Inc. We may share with our affiliates information about our transactions and experiences with you such as name, email address and other general and demographic information. We do not share information other than the types of transactions and experience information described above with our affiliates.
Do we share the information collected with any other third parties?
The cornerstone of our Privacy Statement is the commitment to keep our users’ personal information confidential. We do not sell, license, lease or otherwise disclose your personal information to any third party for any reason except as noted earlier and as described below:
To help us improve our services to you, we may engage another business to help us to carry out certain internal functions, such as processing, fulfillment, user satisfaction surveys or other data collection activities relevant to our business. We may also share user information with companies we have hired to provide marketing and other services on our behalf, or with whom we have joint marketing agreements. All of these companies are contractually obligated to keep the information that we provide to them confidential, and use the information only for the purposes of providing the services we’ve asked them to perform for us or for you.
We reserve the right to disclose your personal information to third parties where permitted by law or where required by law to regulatory, law enforcement or other government authorities. In the unlikely event that the assets pertaining to or ownership of the Software changes, your information will be provided to the new owner. Please note that under those circumstances, the new owner will be under the obligation to use any information collected about you in accordance with this Privacy Statement.
Does our Privacy Statement apply to the sites to which we link?
What steps do we take to protect our users’ personal information.
We have made a significant investment in leading-edge security software, systems, and procedures to offer you a safe a secure online environment and protect your personal information. While no security system is absolutely impenetrable, we are constantly reviewing, refining and upgrading our security technology, as new tools become available.

Will I be able to review, change or correct my information?
