How we gather information from users
How we collect and store information depends on the page you are visiting, the activities in which you elect to
participate and the services provided. For example, you may be asked to provide information when you register for
access to certain portions of our site or request certain features, such as newsletters or when you make a
purchase. You may provide information when you participate in sweepstakes and contests, message boards and chat
rooms, and other interactive areas of our site. Like most Web sites, TradersWorld.com also collects information
automatically and through the use of electronic tools that may be transparent to our visitors. For example, we may
log the name of your Internet Service Provider or use cookie technology to recognize you and hold information from
your visit. Among other things, the cookie may store your user name and password, sparing you from having to
re-enter that information each time you visit, or may control the number of times you encounter a particular
advertisement while visiting our site. As we adopt additional technology, we may also gather information through
other means. In certain cases, you can choose not to provide us with information, for example by setting your
browser to refuse to accept cookies, but if you do you may be unable to access certain portions of the site or may
be asked to re-enter your user name and password, and we may not be able to customize the site’s features according
to your preferences.
What we do with the information we collect
Like other Web publishers, we collect information to enhance your visit and deliver more individualized content
Aggregated Information (information that does not personally identify you) may be used in many ways. For
example, we may combine information about your usage patterns with similar information obtained from other users to
help enhance our site and services (e.g., to learn which pages are visited most or what features are most
attractive). Aggregated Information may occasionally be shared with our advertisers and business partners. Again,
this information does not include any Personally Identifiable Information about you or allow anyone to identify you
We may use Personally Identifiable Information collected on TradersWorld.com to communicate with you about your
by TradersWorld.com and other topics we think you might find of interest.
Personally Identifiable Information collected by TradersWorld.com may also be used for other purposes, including
but not limited to site administration, troubleshooting, processing of e-commerce transactions, administration of
sweepstakes and contests, and other communications with you. Certain third parties who provide technical support
for the operation of our site (our Web hosting service for example) may access such information. We will use your
information only as permitted by law. In addition, from time to time as we continue to develop our business, we may
sell, buy, merge or partner with other companies or businesses. In such transactions, user information may be among
the transferred assets. We may also disclose your information in response to a court order, at other times when we
believe we are reasonably required to do so by law, in connection with the collection of amounts you may owe to us,
and/or to law enforcement authorities whenever we deem it appropriate or necessary. Please note we may not provide
you with notice prior to disclosure in such cases.
Information, such as name, email address and phone number gathered is sometimes shared with third parties, when
that party offers a product or service of value to our users. This is done in the case of speakers at our expos and
advertisers that have booths. We do share emails of attendees of our expos to the presenters so they can followup
and give such things as slides from their presentations or details, pricing or specials of the products or services
