Privacy Policy

At Trading Pen, we value your readership and respect your personal privacy. We understand the personal nature of the data you provide us on our website and acknowledge the importance of protecting this information.

By adopting this privacy policy, our intent is to balance our legitimate business interests in collecting and using your personal information with your reasonable expectations of privacy. This policy may be revised or updated at any time, and we encourage you to check back often to ensure that you are familiar with the most recent version and the terms of our policy.

When does Trading Pen collect my personal information?

You may provide personal information to Trading Pen in one of three ways:

  1. By sharing your e-mail address and subscribing to email newsletters or requesting site updates.
  2. By sharing personal information when you provide tips to our editorial team.
  3. By sharing personal information when you post comments on our posts or news stories.

In addition to personal data—such as name, street and e-mail addresses, and telephone numbers—we may also collect data that is in no way personally identifiable. This may include the operating system you are using, the internet browser you are using, the domain name of your internet service provider, and the websites you visit directly before and after your visit to Trading Pen.

How does Trading Pen use my personal information?

The more we know about you, the better we are able to customize our website to suit your personal preferences and interests. The e-mail address you provide may be used by Trading Pen for any reason, such as contacting you for editorial purposes or to advise you of any changes to our site. We may also occasionally send you messages about our marketing partners’ products.

To maintain a site that is free of charge and does not require registration, we display advertisements on our website. We also use the information you give us to help our advertisers target the audience they want to reach. At no time does any party other than Trading Pen have access to your personally identifiable information, and you will never be contacted by any party other than Trading Pen.

If you choose to sign up for our updates or receive e-mail messages from Trading Pen, you will always be given the chance to opt-out of special offers and site updates. You may change your preferences at any time and will only be contacted in manners consistent with your stated preferences.

Is there anything else I should know about my privacy and Trading Pen?

Any information you disclose voluntarily on our comments pages or in any forums we may develop in the future becomes public information. We cannot control the actions of our site users and advise you to use your discretion in sharing information about yourself on the internet.

All information sharing is optional and done so at your own risk. Privacy is a very personal matter, and we encourage you to be careful and responsible when disclosing personal information online.

Trading Pen takes your privacy seriously. This privacy policy describes what personal information we collect and how we use it. See this privacy policy primer to learn more about privacy policies in general.
