How we collect information from you
In order to process your account for the Service and in order to reconcile our accounts, Protx, or our payment partner, PayPal, may from time to time provide us with information detailing the credits and/or debits made to your credit/debit card. Your credit card information is never displayed on our website, and we do not request or have access to your credit/debt card information.
Cookies are small files of information which are stored on your computer. Web sites you visit ask your computer to store this information and retrieve the information from your computer so that they can keep track of things like other web sites you visit or how you navigate our website or other files which provide you with the Site.

How we look after your information
We make sure that all the information we hold on you is as safe as possible. In addition, we have strict security procedures covering the storage and disclosure of your information in order to prevent unauthorized access. This means that sometimes we may ask you for proof of identity before disclosing any personal information to you.
What do we do with your information?
We use your information to process memberships and orders you make from our Site. We may contact you from time to time to let you know about our services, which may include sending you newsletters and news on events that you may be interested in.

We also maintain a subscriber (and prospective subscriber) list. As a publisher/membership organization, we reserve the right to contact our users and prospects for our legitimate business needs, such as email and paper mailings regarding Valuentum services, or in fulfilling a transaction initiated by the user.
When do we give information that you provide us with to other people?
Apart from entities or contractors that are involved in helping us with compliance, our operations, or running our Site, we never give your information to any third parties.
The entity that helps us with compliance services is Compliance Risk Concepts, a firm that we may only provide your email address so they can perform services for us. Compliance Risk Concepts is bound by confidentiality standards and cannot use any information we provide to them in their own marketing efforts. The entities that help us run our site are SubHub, which provides hosting and design services to us, and Protx (and PayPal), which provides credit card payment processing services to us.
SubHub provides the technology on which our Site runs and holds and maintains the databases in which data about our users is contained. SubHub will only use data you provide to the extent necessary to enable us to operate the Site. We reserve the right to access and disclose individually identifiable information (i) to comply with applicable laws and government requests, (ii) to be able to operate our systems properly or (iii) to protect ourselves or our users.
Valuentum takes your data security seriously. If there is ever a data breach, we will notify you without delay with the next steps to protect your data.
