How We Use and with Whom We Share
We assure you that the personal information we gather from
you is used by us only as explained below.
Sending You Responses and Updates - We generally
respond to any e-mail questions, requests for product or service information,
and other inquiries that we receive. We may also retain this correspondence to
improve our products, services, and Web site, and for other disclosed purposes.
Frequently we retain contact information so that we can send individuals
updates or other important information about our services and products.
Occasionally these updates or other important information may be sent out by
third parties on our behalf. Please be assured that any third party who
contacts you in this capacity has executed a confidentiality agreement with us
that contains a provision ensuring the privacy and security of any transferred information
and limits the third party's use of the shared information to sending updates
or providing services on our behalf. Our subsidiary companies may also send you
information about their services and products. In situations where you have
supplied your information in connection with a question or request for
information about a product or service offered by a 61Point8 business partner,
we may also send the information you have supplied to the 61Point8 business
partners that offer such products or services. Please be assured that these
61Point8 business partners have agreed to ensure the privacy and security of
any transferred information and may only use the shared information to send you
information about products or services about which you asked.
Facilitating the Support, Renewal, and Purchase of Our
Products and Services - We may use the information you submit to contact
you to discuss the support, renewal, and purchase of our products and services.
We may provide our subsidiary companies with your information so that they may
send you information about their services and products. We may also provide the
information you have submitted to us to a 61Point8 subsidiary, business
partner, or independent reseller (either within or outside the United States)
so that the subsidiary, business partner, or independent reseller can contact
you and facilitate the support, renewal, and purchase of 61Point8 products and
services. You may receive a communication directly from one of our
subsidiaries, business partners, or independent resellers. Please be assured
that any subsidiary, business partner, or independent reseller who contacts you

Disclosure by Law and Protection of 61Point8 and Others -
If we are required by law to disclose certain information to local, state,
federal, national or international government or law enforcement authorities,
we will do so (for example, we may disclose the identity of purchasers of
certain software products to the U.S. Department of Commerce, Bureau of Export
Administration, as required under the terms of our export licenses). We will
also disclose information to third parties as necessary in order to comply with
applicable laws and regulations. In addition, 61Point8 may share information in
order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities or
suspected fraud, or enforce or apply 61Point8's agreements.
Business Transitions - Circumstances may arise where,
whether for strategic or other business reasons, 61Point8 decides to sell, buy,
merge or otherwise reorganize businesses or business units in some countries.
Such a transaction may involve the disclosure of personal information to
prospective or actual purchasers, or the receipt of it from sellers. It is
61Point8's practice to seek appropriate protection for information in these
types of transactions.
Surveys - From time to time, we may request
information from customers via surveys. Participation in these surveys is
completely voluntary, therefore the user has a choice of whether to disclose

our customer service and product offerings.

spanning a decade's worth of trading education that can attest to the validity
of the trading education and information services we provide for them. We
operate out of the Chicago Board of Trade Building and encourage you to make a
visit to our offices to verify that we are in no way a company with any scams or
fraudulent practices. Our Testimonials page also provides real student input on
our education and information services to help the wary user assess our genuine

receive from our Web site visitors and subscribers as critical to our corporate
mission. Please be assured that we have security measures in place to protect
against the loss, misuse, and alteration of any personal information we receive
from you. As with any transmission over the Internet, however, there is always
some element of risk involved in sending personal information. In order to try
