Email Privacy Policy

When you subscribe to or join Stock Gumshoe by submitting your email address, your e-mail will be stored in a database and used to send your email alerts/newsletters and occasional advertisements or special notices.

Stock Gumshoe will not sell, rent, or otherwise share your e-mail address with anyone.

The email service used by Stock Gumshoe is Constant Contact, and they have strict anti-spam policies and a strong privacy policy (you can see their policy, which Stock Gumshoe is bound by, here).

You do not need to be an email subscriber in order to access either the free site or the paid site, and you can refuse all email communication if you wish.

You can remove your address from the e-mailing list by following the instructions in every e-mail we send. Look for the link that says “unsubscribe” and your request will be automatically and quickly processed. This will prevent us from sending any email to you through the Constant Contact system, including the paid Stock Gumshoe Irregulars weekly email (even if you remain a paid member, email delivery to you will be blocked). If you would like to be selectively removed from some emails, please let us know and we will adjust your account.

If you choose to contribute to Stock Gumshoe or to become a paid member (the Stock Gumshoe Irregulars), a separate database will keep track of your payments, your name, and your email address, and your username and password. Credit card or other banking information is not kept by Stock Gumshoe’s databases or servers, all sensitive financial information is held only by the secure servers at our payment processing company (currently, Paypal and Amazon Payments do our credit card and electronic processing).

Names of readers who suggest story ideas or topics or forward newsletter ads will not be used without permission. Email addresses or other personally identifiable information may be disclosed as required by applicable law, or in response to legal process, to protect the rights or property of Stock Gumshoe, or to protect the safety of Stock Gumshoe, Inc., our users or employees, or others.

This site and Stock Gumshoe publications and authors do not offer individual financial, investment, medical or other advice. Nothing on this site should ever be considered to be personal advice, research or an invitation to buy or sell any securities. We also make mistakes and bad decisions sometimes, and our reasoning or data should be checked against trusted sources before they inform your investing decisions. Choices regarding how to invest your money or otherwise manage your life or finances are yours, we share only our analysis and opinion and all authors or commenters are individually responsible for the words and opinions they share here. Please read our important disclaimers and policies. Stock Gumshoe is supported by subscribers and by sponsors and advertisers.
