ACKNOWLEDGEMENT AND ACCEPTANCE OF TERMS
INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND HOW WE USE IT
When you use or connect to our Site through your computer or a mobile device, the owners and publishers of the Site collect certain information from and about its users in a few ways, directly from our web server logs, from you, with the aid of cookies, with web beacons, and through the use of website analytics through a third party service provider. Because at this time Options Bro is not an online store, we do not collect personally identifiable information, like registration and billing from customers who purchase products and services online.
The Options Bro’s proxy is a gateway for the user’s network, and is set for the purposes of retrieving such information, and base marketing material on it. We do not collect any sensitive information.
We also collect your IP computer and network address. If you are purchasing a service or signing up for a service, financial information might be required, but it will NOT be visible by us nor will it be collected by us. This information will be collected by the website asking for this information. It is important to note that even though www.optionsbro.com operates as an online business, www.optionsbro.com will never ask for any personally identifiable information from you, the user.
