Zolio Privacy Statement

Zolio.com Privacy Statement
Zolio.com respects your right to privacy. This Privacy Statement sets out and explains our privacy policy. Please read the following to understand our practices regarding personal information and how they affect you as a user of Zolo.com. This statement discloses our current privacy practices; if we make material changes to these practices, we will announce them. If you have questions concerning your privacy at Zolio.com, please email us at info@zolio.com and we will promptly respond.

Section 1: Which information do we collect about our users?
Zolio.com collects information from different parts of our web site so that we can provide a more complete and personal report and feedback to you at the end of the Zolio trading cycle, (timing explained in “What is Zolio?” section). We ask for personal information including (but not limited to) your name, email address, and other personal information when you register for our ZolioTrader.com platform and through our proprietary Profile Tool. However, unless we get your approval, we will not communicate any personal information, including but not limited to your name, address and email address, to anyone outside of Zolio. Your daily results, interim or final reports will also not be made available to anyone, unless you have given prior consent via email communication.

We only use email addresses for communication with you about any aspect of the ZolioTrader.com product.

Section 2: How do we use the information?
Our objective in collecting personal information as well as trading data, profile information and journaling data is to provide you with the most comprehensive feedback about your trading behaviors and style in order that you may learn more about yourself as a trader. Only after you have given permission would this information be shared with any investment firms, at a level of detail left to the discretion of Zolio.com. This may be at a very high level, e.g. trading results by group or style, or at a more detailed level, e.g. by individual participant.

When we show rankings of our members and their portfolios, we will use your unique participant number as an identifier.

Section 3: Do we disclose any of the personal information?
Zolio.com will not disclose any personally identifiable information about individual users, except as described in this Privacy Statement. We may also disclose aggregate information, not individually identifiable, in order to present group results or for other lawful purposes. Zolio does not use any personal information for any third party marketing campaigns.

Section 4: What measures do we take to protect your information?
Zolio.com is committed to protecting your personal information. We store your information on our secure servers. Personalized areas of our sites, such as My Zolio, are password-protected. Only you have access to these password-protected areas. Do not share your passwords with anyone. Zolio.com will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or email. If you are using a computer to which others have access, such as one in a computer lab, Internet cafe, or public library, always remember to log out and close your browser window when leaving our site.

Section 5: How can you correct or revise information that we have about you?
If you want to correct or change information in your Personal Profile, please send an email to info@zolio.com.

Section 6: Does Zolio use IP addresses and cookies?
IP Addresses
Your Web browser or email application automatically provides your Internet Protocol address (“IP address”) to other computers with which you communicate over the Internet, so that they know where to send you information.

We receive an IP address each time you view one of our Web pages, because the browser automatically reports it to us. We also may store the IP address when you register with Zolio.com.  We may use IP addresses for various purposes, including:

  • Diagnosing service or technology problems.
  • Assessing and maintaining system security.
  • Displaying the most appropriate advertising or content.
  • Studying how people use our site and how we can improve it.
  • Reporting to advertisers about aggregate, but not individual, information derived from IP addresses.

Cookies are used on our sites in the following ways:

  • We use cookies to access your stored account information automatically when you log on to our site, in order to deliver a better and more personalized service.
  • We use cookies to estimate our audience size and usage patterns.
  • We use cookies to allow you to access your account information automatically, as well as make changes to your personal information.
  • Most browsers are set up to accept cookies, but you can configure yours to refuse cookies or notify you when you’ve received one. Browsers differ, so check your “Help” menu to learn how to change your cookie preferences.
