DarcMatter Privacy Statement
What information does DarcMatter collect and how is it used?
Our Site actively collects information volunteered by our users in several areas. The information we request for you to participate in these features may include personally identifiable information (that is, information that can be uniquely identified with you) such as your name, address, telephone numbers, and e-mail address. We will tell you at the time we collect information whether the information requested is necessary for you to participate in a particular feature.
The information we collect is used to respond to your specific requests, to send you periodic information and special offers from DarcMatter and our sponsors, to provide you with updates on DarcMatter funds and features, and to provide our sponsors and business partners with data about our users. The information you provide is also used to understand users' interests and behavior, and may be combined and analyzed with information DarcMatter may have from other online or offline sources for marketing or other purposes.
With whom does DarcMatter share your information?
DarcMatter shares your information with our partners as required to facilitate the services provided on the DarcMatter Portal. DarcMatter will also share your information if required by law to do so, to comply with applicable laws or valid legal process, or to protect the rights or property of DarcMatter. Additionally, if part or some of our assets are purchased by a third party, DarcMatter will share your information with the purchaser of all or part of our assets. Some of our advertisers may display ads on the Site that solicit, or contain technology to collect, information about our users. This information is collected and used by our advertisers, and is outside of our control. If you have any questions about an advertisement, you should contact the responsible advertiser directly.
What options do you have about how DarcMatter uses your information?
If you no longer wish for us to send you email messages, please follow the instructions in the email message to unsubscribe. If you wish to edit, update or delete your account, please visit the account page to do so.
What kind of security measures does DarcMatter use?
We have put in place physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to attempt to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security, and correctly use the information we collect online. However, please remember that no transmission of data over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you transmit to us or from us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we use our best efforts to ensure its security on our systems. DarcMatter, however, will have no liability for disclosure of information obtained due to errors in transmissions or the unauthorized intervention of third parties.
Passwords may be used to protect your personal data. We recommend that you do not share your passwords with anyone, and notify us promptly if you believe your password security has been breached. DarcMatter will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or in an unsolicited e-mail. Also, if you are using a computer that others have access to, such as one in a computer lab, Internet cafe or public library, always remember to log out and close your browser window when leaving our Site. In addition, any personally identifiable information or sensitive data that you disclose through any discussion boards or other public online forums hosted on the Site may be collected and used by others. We recommend caution when giving out personal information to others in these public online forums. When you provide information on these forums, you do so at your own risk. The information you share may be viewed by any other user of the Site.
Children Under 13
The Site is not intended for children under the age of 13. We will not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from Site visitors in this age group. We encourage parents to talk to their children about their use of the Internet and the information they disclose online. If a child has provided us with personally identifiable information, a parent or guardian of that child may contact us via e-mail at the above e-mail address if they would like this information deleted from our records. We will use reasonable efforts to delete the child's information from our databases.
Links to non-DarcMatter Websites
Our Site may contain links to websites owned and operated by unaffiliated third parties. These links are provided as a service to you, and do not constitute DarcMatter’s endorsement or support of the third party websites. The third parties who operate these sites have their own information collection and use practices, and DARCMATTER is not responsible for either the privacy practices or the content of these sites. When you follow a link and leave a Site, you do so at your own risk. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of each third party site before providing your personal information, and to contact the providers directly if you have any questions about their privacy policies

Our Site may contain links to third party social media sites, such as Facebook, Twitter or YouTube. The operators of such social media sites may collect personal information and use and disclose such information in accordance with their own privacy policies. For each such site, you should check with the site operator regarding its policies regarding the collection, use and disclosure of personal information.
