Invested.in Inc. (together with its parent, affiliates, successors and assigns, “Invested.in,” the “Company” or “we”) is committed to respecting your privacy and recognizes your need for appropriate protection and management of any Personal Information that you might share with us when you visit any web sites owned, operated, licensed or controlled by us (collectively, the “Websites”).
“Personal Information” is information about you that is personally identifiable to you like your name, address, e-mail address, or phone number.
“Non-Personal Information” means information that is not associated with or linked to your Personal Information. Non-Personal Information does not permit the identification of individual persons. Non-Personal Information, such as information regarding your hardware IDs and device type, your Internet service provider, your location and your use of the Websites and Services, does not by itself identify you to us, though such information may be unique or consist of or contain information that you consider personal.
You agree that your Personal Information may be processed by us in the country where it was collected as well as other countries (including the United States) where laws regarding processing of Personal Information may be less stringent than the laws in your country.
What Information Is Collected:
We collect Personal Information from our online visitors and users on a voluntary basis and only to the extent necessary to fulfill your requests and to create or enhance our relationship with you. We may collect personal information from you in connection with your participation in activities like Website registration; Service-specific registration; promotions; polls, surveys, or questionnaires; purchases through the Websites; and in connection with chats or monitored message boards, or because you want us to furnish you with technical/product support, Services, information, or feedback. Personal Information collected may include, but is not limited to, your name, e-mail address, phone number, fax number, home address, and age.
Online visitors who purchase products or services through our Websites will be required to provide additional personal information such as credit card information, shipping and billing addresses.
We may collect general, aggregated, demographic, and Non-Personal Information from our online visitors. The Non-Personal Information will not be linked to any Personal Information of our online visitors, through cookies or other means, without consent. This type of anonymous, aggregated profiling and session data may include information provided to us through surveys, polls or questionnaires, but will not be tied to any Personal Information without consent. The Non-Personal Information collected may also include aggregated anonymous information about Website usage and the customer base.
As part of the registration process for certain Services, online visitors may be asked to provide information that is not personally identifiable, such as information concerning entertainment preferences, hobbies and interests, and hardware/software profiles. We request this information to understand you better and to also alert you to new services, programs, or offers that may be of interest to you.
How the Information Is Collected:
We collect Personal Information via conventional internet forms and mail and e-mail correspondence with you. New visitors to the Websites may be asked to register. We may request specific details, which may include your name, phone number, fax number, and home address. This information will then be associated with your e-mail account, so that you may identify yourself during future visits to the Websites. We may receive Personal Information about you from other sources like telephone or fax, or from third parties that provide services for us in connection with the Services. We may add, and you hereby agree to the addition of, this information to the information we have already collected from you in order to improve our community and the Services.
We may collect Non-Personal Information passively or actively. As you navigate our Websites or use the Services, certain information may also be collected passively, including your Internet protocol address, browser type, and operating system.

The lists used to send you product and service offers are developed and managed under our standards and those of our service provider, which are designed to safeguard the security and privacy of our visitors’ Personal Information.
