Any financial information provided on the Site is for informational purposes only, and is not intended for trading or investing purposes, or for commercial use.

We take reasonable precautions to protect your information. We seek to store Personal information in a secured manner and to transmit it via a secure internet channel. For example, when you enter sensitive information such as a credit card number, EIP uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) to encrypt the transmission of that information. However, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable, and EIP cannot guarantee that the information submitted to, maintained on or transmitted from its systems will be completely secure. EIP is not responsible for the circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the site by any users or third parties.
EIP maintains internal logs for Internal Protocol (IP) addresses. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer each time you access the Internet. Your IP address does not contain personally identifiable information. EIP collects IP addresses in order to conduct system administration, report aggregate information, conduct site analysis, and to detect improper use of the site. EIP sometimes uses IP addresses to identify the location of your computer based on publicly available and third-party information and, if located, to market to you through internet marketing, mail or call campaigns, or online targeted, interest-based advertising.
We use “cookies” for authentication, other types of security, user log-ins, enabling our services collecting analytics information, marketing our services to you, sending you targeted advertising for our services, optimizing our website, and personalizing and customizing your web experience. By placing a small file known as a “cookie” in your browser, the web servers operated by EIP and its third party service providers can remember and distinguish your web browser software over time. This is necessary in order to enable the functions described above. If you disagree with this use, you should turn off or disable “cookies” on your browser or device.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
If you do not wish to receive phone, mail, or email marketing offers, you may request that we remove your name from our internal email, direct mail, or internal telemarketing lists. You can call 1-888-333-3079 to make your opt-out request. If you would no longer like to receive emailed special offer information or other promotional messages from us, you may click the link at the bottom of any email you receive from us and follow the instructions. Your email address will be removed from our marketing list. Please allow us a reasonable period of time (no more than 10 business days) in order to satisfy your request, as some promotions may already be in process. You may still receive internet marketing through targeted advertising.
