We may also share and otherwise process aggregated information or de-identified information that does not identify you individually with other parties. For example, from time to time, we may utilize survey information collected from you on an aggregate, not individually identifiable, basis.

We do not share, sell, rent or trade your information to our service providers or business partners for their own direct marketing purposes, unless we have explicitly given you the option to opt-in or opt-out of such disclosures.

This technology involves placing small files/code on your device or browser that serve a number of purposes, such as remembering your preferences (e.g., language) and generally improving your experience on our Sites. Specifically, we may use such technology for purposes such as to:

Access and Correction of Your Information

If you have created an online account with us and would like to update the information you have provided to us, you can access your account to view and make changes or corrections to your information. Depending on applicable law, you may have the right, and we also provide you with the opportunity to be informed of whether we are processing your information and to access, correct, update, oppose, delete, block, limit or object, upon request and free of charge, to our use of your information to the extent required by applicable law. For such inquiries, please contact us as detailed under the “Contact Us” heading below. We will try to comply with your request as soon as reasonably practicable as required by applicable law.

Security of Your Information

We take reasonable technical, administrative and physical security measures to protect your information, including applying generally accepted industry standards to protect the information submitted to us during transmission and once we receive it. When we request sensitive information (e.g., credit card number) from you, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (“SSL”). However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure, so we unfortunately cannot guarantee absolute security. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (e.g., if you feel that the security of any account you might have with us has been compromised), please contact us immediately as detailed under the “Contact Us” heading below.

International Transfers

Some of the parties with which we may share your information, as detailed in “How We Share Your Information”, may be located in countries that do not provide an equivalent level of protection as your home country. Where required, NASDAQ has implemented appropriate cross-border transfer solutions to provide adequate protection for transfers of certain personal information, including, but not limited to, the European Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses (http://ec.europa.eu/justice/data-protection/international-transfers/transfer/index_en.htm). By using our Sites, and providing us information about you, you consent to the international transfer of information about you to the above parties.

Tell-A-Friend

If you choose to use our referral service to tell a friend about one our Sites, we will ask you for your friend’s name and email address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time email to invite him/her to access the specific Site, and store his/her email address for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email and tracking the success of our referral program.

Our Sites may contain links to other websites or services that are not owned or controlled by NASDAQ, including links to websites of our advertisers, sponsors and partners.
