The Center for the Study of Financial Market Evolution (CSFME) places a high priority on protecting your privacy. This privacy policy was created in order to demonstrate CSFME’s firm commitment to the privacy of our website users. This policy explains what types of information are collected by the CSFME’s website, csfme.org, and how this information is used. By using the Center for the Study of Financial Market Evolution site, you consent to the data practices described in this statement.

What Personally Identifiable Information is Collected

To the extent that visitors to csfme.org voluntarily provide us with contact information (such as name and e-mail address), we may use this information for specific, limited purposes. You may always "opt-out," either now or at any time in the future if you do not wish to receive our messages.

IP addresses

CSFME uses your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, to administer csfme.org, and for statistical metrics used to track website visitor traffic.

Cookies

CSFME uses "cookie" messages to automatically help provide better services. They remind us who you are and your preferences for our website based on what you've done and told us before. The "cookie" is placed on your computer and is read when you come back to our website. Cookies let us take you to the information and features you're particularly interested in. They also let us track your usage of csfme.org, so we know which parts of our sites are most popular. You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Center for the Study of Financial Market Evolution services or Web sites you visit.

Google Analytics Privacy Notice

csfme.org uses Google Analytics to collect information about the use of our website. Google Analytics collects information from users such as age, gender, interests, demographics, how often they visit our website, what pages they visit, and what other websites they have used before coming to our website. We use the information we get from Google Analytics to analyze traffic and to improve our website. We have enabled Google Analytics advertising features such as remarketing with Google Analytics, Google Display Network Impression Reporting, and Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit our website, not your name or other identifying information. We do not combine the information collected using Google Analytics with personal data. Although Google Analytics plants a permanent cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit our website, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google. Google also uses specific identifiers to help collect information about the use of our website. For more information on how Google collects and processes your data, visit this website.
