Collection of Personal Information As a visitor to this Site, you can engage in activities without providing any personal information. In connection with other activities, such as requesting additional information or viewing certain information, we may ask you to provide information about yourself by filling out and submitting an online form. It is completely optional for you to engage in these activities. If you elect to engage in these activities, however, TraderDirect may ask that you provide us personal information, such as your first and last name, e-mail address, employer, telephone and facsimile numbers, and other personal information. Depending upon the activity, some of the information that we ask you to provide is identified as mandatory and some as voluntary. If you do not provide the mandatory data with respect to a particular activity, you will not be able to engage in that activity.
When you use the Site, TraderDirect may also collect certain technical and routing information about your computer to facilitate your use of the Site and its services. For example, we may log environmental variables, such as browser type, operating system, CPU speed, and the Internet Protocol ("IP") address of your computer. We use these environmental variables to facilitate and track your use of the Site and its services. TraderDirect also uses such environmental variables to measure traffic patterns on the Site. Without expressly informing you in each particular circumstance, we do not match such information with any of your personal information.
How your Personal Information is Used TraderDirect may collect information about the use of the Site, such as the types of services used and how many users we receive daily. This information is collected in aggregate form, without identifying any user individually. TraderDirect may use this aggregate, non-identifying statistical data for statistical analysis, marketing, or similar promotional purposes.
There are other instances in which TraderDirect may divulge your personal information. TraderDirect may provide your personal information if necessary, in TraderDirect's good faith judgment, to comply with laws or regulations of a governmental or regulatory body or in response to a valid subpoena, warrant, or order or to protect the rights of TraderDirect or others.
