Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy of Ridgeline Research LLC
We have adopted this policy with the recognition that protecting the privacy and security of the personal information we obtain about our customers is an important responsibility. We also know that you expect us to serve you in an accurate and efficient manner. To do so, we must collect and maintain certain personal information about you. We want you to understand how we protect your privacy when we collect and use information about you.

What Information We Collect
We collect certain nonpublic personal identifying information about you (such as your name, email address, company, phone number, etc.) from information that you provide on applications or other forms as well as communications (electronic, telephone, written or in person) with you or your authorized representatives (such as your financial adviser, attorney, accountant, etc.).

Technical information obtained from your computer as you navigate through our web site (for example, information, such as computer browser type, internet protocol address, pages visited, and average time spent on our web site). We may also place cookies and similar files on your computer for identification and tracking purposes.

Use of Information
Except as otherwise stated, we may use your information to improve or modify the content of our site, to customize the site to users’ preferences, to communicate information to you (if you have requested or consented to the delivery of such information), for our marketing and research purposes, and for the purposes specified in this Privacy Policy or otherwise permitted by law.

Where required by applicable laws, court orders, government regulations or order of a governmental authority with appropriate jurisdiction.

Government agencies, other regulatory bodies and law enforcement officials (for example, for tax purposes or for reporting suspicious transactions)

Other organizations, as permitted by law (for example, for fraud prevention) We may make full use of all information acquired through this site that is not in personally identifiable form.

We do not sell personably identifiable information.

Online Privacy
Privacy, security, and service in our online operations are just as critical as in the rest of our business. We take reasonable steps to protect your personal identifiable information as you transmit your information from your computer to our site and to protect such information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. You should keep in mind that no Internet transmission is ever 100% secure or error-free. E-mail sent to or from this site may not be secure, and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to us via e-mail.

Cookie-Disclosure Statement
We use cookie technology to allow you to move quickly through our website. A cookie is a small file that is sent to your computer by a site’s server. A cookie can be a record of your visit to a site, including information such as contact information, time of last visit, etc. A cookie created by one site’s servers can be retrieved only by that site’s servers. Thus, information in the Ridgeline Research’s cookie is not accessible to other sites. When you first enter the website, for example, we use a test cookie to confirm your browser’s ability to retain cookies. After you have provided the requested registration information a cookie is then temporarily “set” within your browser to allow you to proceed without having to confirm your identity with each subsequent page you request to view. If you set your browser to “not accept” any cookies, you may be asked to provide information that was already provided.

What Information We Disclose
We do not disclose the nonpublic personal information we collect about our customers to anyone.  If you decide at some point to either terminate our services or become an inactive customer, we will continue to adhere to our privacy policy, as may be amended from time to time.

Security of Your Information
We restrict access to your nonpublic personal information to those employees who need to know that information to service your account. We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with applicable federal or state standards to protect your nonpublic personal information.

Changes to our Privacy Policy or Relationship with You
Our policy about obtaining and disclosing information may change from time to time. We will provide you with notice of any material change to this policy before we implement the change.
