SHARING OF INFORMATION WE COLLECT
BearNBull is not in the business of selling your information. There are, however, certain circumstances in which we may share your personal data with certain third parties without further notice to you, as set forth below:
Sharing Your Information with Other Users
Certain features and functionality of the Site and the Services may require you to share certain of your information with other users of the Site. For example, hypothetical investment information contained in a user portfolio or profile will generally be viewable by other users of the Site. Sharing of hypothetical investment information allows other users to understand how investment trends and market performance will impact a broad range of hypothetical investment portfolios over time. If you wish to limit the sharing of this kind of hypothetical investment information, you may need to subscribe to the “private portfolio” and/or “private community” features of the Site. Your public postings, comments or other content that you post publicly on the site will also generally be shared with other Site users.
Agents, Consultants and Third Party Service Providers
BearNBull, like many businesses, sometimes hires other companies to perform certain business-related functions. Examples of such functions include mailing information, maintaining databases and processing payments. When we employ another entity to perform a function of this nature, we only provide them with the information that they need to perform their specific function.
As we develop our business, we might sell or buy businesses or assets. In the event of a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution or similar event, personal data may be part of the transferred assets.
BearNBull may disclose your personal data if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (i) comply with a legal obligation, (ii) protect and defend the rights or property of BearNBull, (iii) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the Site, the Services or the public, or (iv) protect against legal liability.
LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES
The Site may have links to third-party websites, which may have privacy policies that differ from our own. We are not responsible for the practices of such sites, nor does any such link imply that BearNBull endorses or has reviewed the third party site subject to such link. We suggest contacting those sites directly for information on their privacy policies.
CHILDREN AND MINORS
We have taken certain physical, administrative, and technical steps to safeguard the information we collect from and about our customers and Site visitors. While we make reasonable efforts to help ensure the integrity and security of our network and systems, we cannot guarantee our security measures. Therefore, you should take special care in deciding what information you send to us via email. Please keep this in mind when disclosing any personal data to the Company via the Internet.
