|DATA COLLECTION POLICY|
Collection of Information
Aggregate Data: You may visit web pages within the Elliott Wave Network of websites referenced above without giving us any personally identifiable information (PII) about yourself. We do collect aggregate (non-PII) data such as browser type, connection speed, previously viewed products on our site, click paths, etc. about users using cookies (See the "Tracking Cookies" section below). Any data we obtain automatically using these tracking technologies is used to enhance the website experience such as exposing visitors to other relevant services that we feel could be complementary. We also use this data for analytic trend studies. You will be notified when your personally identifiable information is collected by any third party that is not our agent/service provider, so you can make an informed choice as to whether or not to share your information with that party. We do not link aggregate user data with personally identifiable information.
Personally Identifiable Information: In order to deliver services you've requested and personalize your experience with the Elliott Wave Network of websites referenced above further, we may ask for you to give personally identifiable information (PII ) such as your name, postal address, email address, phone number, interests or preferences, IP address, etc. We are committed to protecting all of the personally identifiable information that we collect and thus this information is kept strictly confidential and is not distributed to third parties who are not service providers or as described in this privacy statement without your consent.
We store the information that we collect through cookies and clear gif images to create a "profile" of your preferences. We then tie your personally identifiable information (such as your name, email address, and interests or preferences), and your purchasing history, to information in your customer profile, in order to provide tailored promotions and marketing offers and to enhance your website experience.
We may request personally identifiable information when you:
- Sign up for one of our free content programs such as Club EWI, Free Email Newsletters, or our Affiliate Program
- Purchase something through our online store or friendly customer service representatives
- Participate in a survey, whether through an email or on any of the Elliott Wave Network of websites referenced above
- Access password-protected resources hosted on any of the Elliott Wave Network of websites referenced above

You also have the option to post anonymous testimonials. You may also request that a testimonial be removed from the Elliott Wave Network of websites referenced above by contacting EWI Customer Service.
You may post comments on the EWI Message Board. You should be aware that any personally identifiable information you submit there can be read, collected, or used by other users of these forums, and could be used to send you unsolicited messages. We are not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit in this forum. To request removal of your personally identifiable information from our blog or community forum, contact us by phone, mail, or email at the contact information listed below. In some cases, we may not be able to remove your personally identifiable information, in which case we will let you know if we are unable to do so and why.
Our Promise to You
We value you as a customer of EWI and likewise we value your privacy. The information we collect is kept strictly confidential and will not be given, sold, or shared with outside companies who are not service providers or as described in this privacy statement.
EWI does not distribute unsolicited bulk advertising via email (spam). You may opt-out of any of our various email lists, such as our Free Email Newsletters, Club EWI, Subscriber Updates, etc. by simply following the instructions included in each email communication, by visiting the Edit Profile section of ElliottWave.com, or by contacting EWI Customer Service.
In order to comply with the Federal CAN-SPAM Act of 2003, we may provide a list of email addresses of customers who have opted-out of EWI's email lists to other companies that send email on our behalf (Email Service Providers). This suppression list is used solely for the purpose of preventing an unsubscribed EWI customer from receiving EWI-related emails from another company. We require all companies that send to their email lists on our behalf to sign an agreement prohibiting the suppression list from being used for any other purpose than not sending you our email. We conform to all state and federal laws regarding this issue.
