Entrepreneurial Exchange/fortheentrepreneur.com, its subsidiaries and its affiliates ("Entrepreneurial Exchange") is committed to protecting the privacy and security of its users. The Entrepreneurial Exchange’s goal is to provide you with a personalized Internet experience that delivers the information, resources and services that are most relevant and helpful to you. In order to achieve this goal, Entrepreneurial Exchange sometimes collects information during your visits to understand what differentiates you from other users of fortheentrepreneur.com. Entrepreneurial Exchange operates under the following set of strict privacy principles:

The only information Entrepreneurial Exchange obtains about individual users to its Web site is that supplied voluntarily by users. In cases when Entrepreneurial Exchange may need personal information to provide users with customized content or to inform them about new features or services, users are explicitly asked for that information.

Personally identifiable information provided by users (name, e-mail or home address, etc.) will not be disclosed to anyone unless users indicate that Entrepreneurial Exchange may do so, or unless required by law, in conjunction with a government inquiry, or in litigation or dispute resolution.

Only statistical information about fortheentrepreneur.com users as a group (usage habits, demographics) may be shared with any affiliate, subsidiary, sponsor, advertiser or partner of Entrepreneurial Exchange, unless an appropriate confidentiality agreement is in place. Entrepreneurial Exchange employs strict security measures to safeguard online transactions. All personal information is stored in a secured database.
