1. Information OVI Traders Gathers and Tracks

OVI Traders gathers two types of information about users: data that users provide through downloads; and data OVI Traders gathers through aggregating tracking information derived mainly by tallying page views throughout our sites and click-throughs from any of our partners. Such information enables us to better tailor our content to members’ needs and to help our partners better understand the demographics of our audience. Because OVI Traders may in the future derive revenue from advertising, providing such aggregated demographic data is essential. OVI Traders does not divulge information about an individual user to a third party at any time.

OVI Traders gathers user information in the following processes:

Download Forms
During the download process the user is required to supply their name, contact phone number and email address, and may also be required to answer other survey questions about age, gender, income, zip code, country, and other information.

Polling
Occasionally OVI Traders will conduct offer interactive polls to users so they can easily share their opinions with other users and see what the OVI Traders audience thinks about important issues. OVI Traders uses a system to “tag” users after they have voted, so they can vote only once on a particular question. This tag is not correlated with information about individual users.

Electronic Newsletters
OVI Traders delivers newsletters, marketing and product offerings via email to people who have requested to be added to our Mailing list and people who purchased or trialled OVI Traders products. The email tracking system recognizes the URL that was clicked, and records some information about you and your computer, such as the email address that you provided to us, the browser, operating system and IP address.

OVI Traders also uses the feature of your browser to set a “cookie” on your system. This allows us to measure and report the click through rate on e-mails delivered and then better determine future content.

OVI Traders will not provide specific user information to any third party company.

Surveys
Occasionally OVI Traders conducts user surveys to optimize our products for our audience. We may share the aggregated demographic information in these surveys with our advertisers and partners. We never share any of this information about specific individuals with any third party.
