2. What Types of Information Do We Collect?

Information You Provide Directly to Us.

Registration Information. When you register an account with us or purchase our Services, we collect Personal Information, such as your name and contact information such as your email and phone number, and ask you to create a username and password.

User Content. Some of our Services may allow you to create and post or upload User Content.

Social Media Features and Widgets. Our app and website may include social media features, such as the Facebook Like or Share button and widgets that may allow you to share information about your use of the Services on third-party social media sites. These features may collect your IP address, which page you are visiting on our website, and may set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly. They may also allow third-party social media services to provide us information about you, including your name, email address, and other contact information. The data we receive is dependent upon your privacy settings with the social network. These features are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our site. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy statement of the company providing it. You should always review, and if necessary, adjust your privacy settings on third-party websites and services before linking or connecting them to the Service.

Broker Login and Trading Information

You may choose to store your login information for third-party brokerage sites locally on your device. White Shark does not collect or store this information. White Shark may receive certain information about trades you have requested from third-party brokerage sites accessed using the Services.

Non-Personal Information.

White Shark also gathers non-personal information from users. Non-personal information is information that usually cannot by itself be used to identify a particular person or entity, and may include: Internet Protocol (IP) address, unique device identifiers, anonymous IDs for advertising, operating system, mobile network information, browser type, existing applications, and browsing activity.

3. How Do We Use Information?

Subject to the restrictions described in this Privacy Policy and applicable law, we may use Personal Information for any reasonable purpose related to White Shark's businesses, including to open your account, enable trading information to be sent to third-party broker services, personalize the Services for you, respond to your contact inquiries, provide you with Services you have requested and/or customer support, conduct analytics to improve and enhance our Services, and communicate with you about products or services that may be of interest to you.

We analyze non-personal information to help us determine how users access the Services and who our users are. We may use non-personal information to make our Services more interesting and useful to you; for analyzing and improving the value of the material available through our Services; to increase the effectiveness of the products we will offer to you in the future; and to help our partners and service providers, or our website design teams to create, serve, and track promotions our customers might like.

4. How Do We Share Information?

We will only share your Personal Information as described in this Privacy Policy. We do not sell your Personal Information to third parties. We may, however, disclose the Personal Information we collect from you in limited circumstances, including:

  • When you connect with a third-party brokerage service through the Services and request to engage in a trading transaction, we may share trade data with the brokerage service.
  • We may disclose to our suppliers and contractors who process your Personal Information to provide services to us or you including, without limitation, market research; fraud protection; data analysis; email management; and customer service. In some instances, these contractors may have access to Personal Information, but they are contractually obligated to maintain the confidentiality of the information and to use it only for purposes of carrying out the business of White Shark.
  • We may disclose to any law enforcement agency, court, regulator, government authority or other third party where we believe this is necessary to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation, in order to enforce our Terms of Use, or otherwise to protect our rights/property or the rights/property of any third party, including to enforce our terms and conditions or to prevent fraud or cybercrime.
  • We may disclose to any third party that purchases, or to which we transfer, all or substantially all of our assets and business. Should such a sale or transfer occur, we will use reasonable efforts to try to ensure that the entity to which we transfer your Personal Information uses it in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy.
  • We may disclose with your knowledge and consent.

We may share non-personal information, such as Aggregate Information and Anonymized Information, with third parties, including but not limited to advisors, advertisers, analytics providers, and investors, for the purpose of conducting our business. White Shark may use third party services such as Google Analytics to track aggregated user o visitor data, which does not include any Personal Information. We reserve the right to disclose to third parties non-personal information collected for any lawful purpose.

5. Your Choices

If your Registration Information changes, you may access, correct or update most of it from your Account Settings page. You may also modify and delete certain of the information you have provided to us.

By registering for an account, you are agreeing that we may send you promotional emails about our Services. You can opt-out of receiving certain messages or notifications from us by visiting your Account page (go to Log in, Settings, Notifications) or by contacting us at support@whitesharkfintech.com. You can also click the "unsubscribe" button at the bottom of promotional email communications. Please note that you may not opt-out of receiving non-promotional messages regarding your account, such as technical notices, or Service-related emails.

6. Security

White Shark cares about the security and confidentiality of the information you provide to us. We maintain commercially reasonable administrative, technical and physical security measures to attempt to protect against the loss, misuse, unauthorized access, modification, or disclosure of information you submit to us that is under our control. However, no website, application or online service is completely secure or "hacker proof"; we cannot guarantee and we do not warrant that loss, misuse, or alteration of data will not occur, and we are not responsible for the theft, destruction, or inadvertent disclosure of your Personal Information. You are also responsible for taking reasonable steps to protect your Personal Information against unauthorized disclosure or misuse.

7. Children

We do not knowingly collect or store Personal Information from anyone under the age of 13 unless or except as permitted by law. ANY PERSON WHO USES ANY OF THE SERVICES REPRESENTS TO US THAT HE OR SHE IS 13 YEARS OF AGE OR OLDER. If we are made aware that we have received Personal Information from someone under 13, we will use reasonable efforts to remove that information from our records.

8. Cookies and Do Not Track

White Shark uses cookies and similar technologies to collect non-Personal Information for the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy. A cookie is a small data file that our server sends to your browser when you visit the website. The use of cookies helps us to assist your use of certain aspects of the website. Most Internet browsers allow you to disable, turn the cookie feature off, or reject cookies entirely by changing the settings. Changing these settings, however, may affect your ability to use certain features and functions of the website. Please note that by visiting the website you are consenting to the use of cookies.

We may permit third-party advertising networks and providers to collect Anonymized Information such as anonymized web behavior information on our Service to help us to deliver targeted online advertisements ("ads") to you. They use cookies and similar technologies (such as JavaScript, beacons, device identifiers, location data, and clear gifs) to compile information about your browser's or device's visits and usage patterns on our Services and on other websites over time, which helps to better personalize ads to match your interests, and to measure the effectiveness of ad campaigns.

If you do not wish to have this information used for the purpose of serving you targeted ads, you may be able to opt-out of many advertising networks by visiting the TRUSTe Advertising Choices or National Advertising Initiative websites. Please note this does not mean that you have opted-out of being served advertising. You may continue to receive generic ads.

At this time, we do not track our users' Personal Information over time and across third-party websites. We therefore do not respond to browser Do Not Track signals.

9. Privacy Policy Changes

We may, in our sole discretion, change this Privacy Policy from time to time. Any and all changes to this Privacy Policy will be reflected here and the date new versions are posted will be stated at the top of this Privacy Policy. Whenever this Privacy Policy is changed in a material way, a notice will be posted as part of this Privacy Policy and on our customers' account login pages for 30 days. After 30 days the changes will become effective. In addition, all customers will receive an email with notification of the changes prior to the change becoming effective. If you do not agree with this Privacy Policy, please do not use or access the Services, and if you do not agree to any changes we make in the future, you must end your use of the Services.
