This Privacy Policy discloses our privacy practices with respect to your access to and use of the website, our email newsletters, social media pages, mobile and other applications owned and operated by us, and any other services associated therewith (“FE Content”), which are provided by Financially Empowered. This Privacy Policy governs Financially Empowered’s collection of information from you through your use of FE Content. It does not apply to any information you may provide to Financially Empowered through other means, e.g., via mail or via telephone. Please read this Privacy Policy carefully so that you understand Financially Empowered’s online privacy practices. By using FE Content, you agree that your visit to, download or use of FE Content, and any dispute over Financially Empowered’s online privacy practices, is governed by this Privacy Policy and Financially Empowered’s Terms and Conditions of Use. Questions regarding privacy issues should be directed to or to Financially Empowered, Attn.: Legal Dept., 865 Via de la Paz #300, Pacific Palisades, Calif. 90272.

Information we collect

Financially Empowered may collect and store information, personal or otherwise, that you supply either voluntarily or while navigating FE Content. That information may include personal information (e.g., information that identifies you as an individual or relates to an identifiable individual), technical information (e.g., device identifier, Internet protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, or operating system), and usage information (e.g., how you use, navigate, and respond to FE Content and information about content or advertisements you have been shown or have clicked on). We may combine these types of information together, and collectively refer to all of this information in this Privacy Policy as “Information.”

Information You Voluntarily Give Us. In connection with your use of FE Content, Financially Empowered collects identity and contact Information you voluntarily supply when registering for optional subscriptions and setting/adjusting subscription preferences or otherwise interacting with FE Content. Examples of this type of Information include the personal information you provide when you subscribe for FE Content (e.g., your name, job title, organizational affiliation, and email address). Supplying such Information is entirely voluntary. However, if you choose NOT to supply the requested Information, Financially Empowered may be unable to provide you with services made available to other users of FE Content.

When you interact with FE Content you may share other Information about yourself by, for example, signing up for a webinar, downloading a report, requesting a demo, or applying for jobs. This type of Information may include your name, email address, phone number, state, and resume.

Information Collected Automatically. We also collect certain usage and technical information regarding your navigation through FE Content and interaction with emails. As is true of most websites, Financially Empowered may also collect and store information that is generated automatically as you navigate through FE Content, which may be stored in log files. This information includes cookies, tracking pixels, web beacons, users’ IP and email addresses, browser type, operating system, general location data and other information about your use of FE Content, including a history of the pages you view. See the “Cookies and Other Technologies” section below for more information on how we may use these technologies to collect this information.

Information Collected from Other Sources. We may also collect Information about you from other sources, including through interactive applications (such as mobile devices, third-party services, and embedded audio and video players), from co-branded partners, and from commercially available sources (such as data aggregators and public databases).

Financially Empowered may authorize the collection of Information by third party advertisers through advertising technologies deployed in ads that may appear on FE Content without separate consent. The collection and use of Information by these third-party advertisers is governed by the privacy policies of those third parties and is not covered by Financially Empowered’s privacy policy. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of those parties.

Sensitive personal information

We ask that you not send us, and that you do not disclose to us, any sensitive personal information (e.g., social security numbers, information related to political opinions, racial or ethnic origin, religion or other beliefs, health, biometrics or genetic characteristics, criminal background, trade union membership, sexual preferences or sexual orientation) on or through FE Content or otherwise. Any requested information that relates to sensitive personal information can be left unanswered by you.

How we use the information

We use Information for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy or disclosed at the time of collection or with your consent.

To Personalize Your Experience. Financially Empowered uses the Information it collects from you in a variety of ways, such as customizing features and advertising that appear on FE Content. The Information you supply will help Financially Empowered provide the services requested, offer you enhanced or more personalized features, and tailor FE Content and advertisements to your perceived interests. Please note that all of the Information we collect about you may be combined to help us tailor our communications to you and to develop rich online content and services. We rely upon your consent to process the Information you voluntarily supply.

To Evaluate and Develop New Features, Technologies, and Improvements to FE Content. We use your IP address and the information obtained through cookies, web beacons, and similar technologies to deliver FE Content’s content to you upon request and to measure traffic within FE Content, as well as track access and use of FE Content across devices you use to access FE Content. Processing this Information is necessary for our legitimate interests to further develop, study and analyze how FE Content is used, to keep our website updated and relevant by tracking user interests, trends, and patterns, and to grow our business and inform our marketing strategy.

For Marketing, Promotion, and Advertising Purposes. Financially Empowered may use the Information you provide to send you advertisements on behalf of third parties through FE Content. We may also use third party advertising companies to target and serve some of the advertisements that appear on FE Content, and these companies likewise may use their own cookies, web beacons, and similar technologies to collect Information from users of FE Content. The Information collected by these companies may include the IP address of your computer.

These companies may use that Information, sometimes in conjunction with similar Information gathered from other websites, to deliver advertisements on FE Content, and possibly on other websites (e.g., if the third-party advertising company operates an advertising network), tailored to match the perceived interests of consumers.

To Communicate with You and Provide Updates. We may use your Information (a) to contact you for customer service purposes, (b) to inform you of important changes and additions to FE Content or the services offered over FE Content, (c) to provide you with updates on new data, products, events, invitations to participate in surveys, or messages from partners, and (d) to provide or deliver any other communications that Financially Empowered believes may be of interest to you. Our legal basis for processing this Information is based on your consent as well as for our legitimate interests to keep our records updated and to study how FE Content is used.

For Administrative, Compliance, and Legal Tasks. We may also use your identity and contact Information for (a) auditing purposes, to verify that our internal processes function as intended and comply with legal, regulatory and contractual requirements, (b) fraud and security monitoring purposes, including, for example, to detect and prevent cyberattacks, and (c) sending you administrative notices, offers, and requests for feedback.

This Information may also be used in order to comply with various legal processes and to protect and enforce the rights and interests of Financially Empowered and others. Therefore, we may access, preserve and disclose Information if we are required to do so by law or we have a good faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) comply with the law or with legal process, (b) protect and defend our rights, safety and property, including in connection with the
Terms and Conditions of Use, (c) protect against misuse or unauthorized use of FE Content, (d) protect and defend the rights, safety and property of our users or the public (among other things, this means that if you provide false or misleading information or attempt to pose as someone else, Information about you may be disclosed as part of any investigation into your actions), and (e) cooperate with public and government authorities (which may be outside your country of residence). Processing this Information is necessary for running our business, e.g., complying with legal obligations, provision of administrative and IT services, network security, prevention of fraud, and in the unlikely context of a business reorganization or group restructuring.

Sharing your information

Financially Empowered may share your Information with third parties, such as service providers, contractors, and advertisers. For example, Financially Empowered may provide Financially Empowered’s advertisers with Information about you and other visitors that will enable Financially Empowered’s advertisers to better target advertisements that are more relevant to you.

Please also note that as Financially Empowered’s business grows, Financially Empowered may buy or sell various assets. We have a legitimate interest in disclosing or transferring your Information to a third party in the event of any reorganization, merger, sale, joint venture, assignment, transfer or other disposition of all or any portion of our business (including in connection with any bankruptcy or similar proceedings). In the event that Financially Empowered is involved in any of the foregoing transactions, including the transfer of FE Content to another company, your Information may be among the transferred assets.

Unsubscribing. You may also manage and modify your subscriptions, and otherwise limit our communications with you by contacting us at

By contacting us, you grant Financially Empowered permission to use your email address for purposes of responding to your request. Please note that we may need to retain certain information for recordkeeping purposes and/or to complete any transactions that you began prior to requesting the change or deletion.

You may lodge a complaint with a data protection authority for your country or region or where an alleged infringement of applicable data protection law occurs. We would, however, appreciate the chance to deal with your concerns before you lodge a formal complaint so please contact us in the first instance.

Storage and retention of your information

We retain Information for as long as needed or permitted in light of the purpose(s) for which it was obtained, consistent with applicable law. The criteria used to determine our retention periods include (a) the length of time we have an ongoing relationship with you and provide FE Content access to you (e.g., for as long as you continue to use FE Content), (b) whether there is a legal obligation to which we are subject (e.g., certain laws require us to keep records of your transactions for a certain period of time before we can delete them), or (c) whether retention is advisable in light of our legal position (e.g., applicable statutes of limitations, litigation or regulatory investigations).

Information Security. We have put in place reasonable controls designed to help safeguard the Information we collect via FE Content. However, no security measures are perfect, and we cannot assure you that Information that we collect will never be accessed or used in an unauthorized way.

To further protect your data, we recommend that you use complex passwords for any accounts you have with us where password protection is offered as an option. Please do not use the passwords you use for FE Content for other services or share passwords with unauthorized persons. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure, please immediately contact us at

Third party sites

FE Content includes links to third party websites whose privacy policies Financially Empowered does not control. Once you leave FE Content, any Information you provide at another site will be governed by the privacy policy of the operator of the site you are visiting. The privacy policies of third-party websites will differ from ours.

Please note that if you make a purchase through a third-party site, the privacy policy of the third-party site will govern the use and distribution of your credit card number or other financial information.

Cookies and other technologies

To help make FE Content more responsive to the needs of users, Financially Empowered employs a standard feature of commonly used browser software, called a “cookie,” to assign each user a unique, random number that resides on a user’s computer. The cookie does not personally identify the user; it merely identifies the computer with which the user accesses FE Content. Unless a user voluntarily identifies himself or herself (through subscription, for example), FE Content will not be able to identify the identity of the user, even if a cookie is assigned to a user’s computer. The personal information a cookie can contain is information supplied by a user. Cookies prevent you from having to re-enter your preferences on certain areas of FE Content where you have previously entered preference information. Of course, you are free to set your web browser to not accept cookies; however, doing so may render your computer unable to take advantage of the personalized features enjoyed by other users of FE Content.

FE Content’s servers automatically collect limited information about your computer’s connection to the Internet, including your IP address. The IP address is a number that lets computers attached to the Internet know where to send data – such as the web pages users view.

Financially Empowered may also use web beacons (also known as “single-pixel GIFs”) to access cookies and to count users who visit FE Content or open Financially Empowered’s HTML-formatted email messages, as well as track device identification statistics and other non-identifying information for the purpose of analytics, push notifications, and error reporting. These analytics may be provided to third party vendors.

Do Not Track Notice. Financially Empowered takes privacy and security very seriously. We strive to put our users first in all aspects of our business. With regard to Do Not Track (“DNT”) signals, Financially Empowered currently does not respond to DNT signals in browsers because a uniform technological standard has not yet been developed. We continue to review new technologies and may adopt a standard once one is created.

Childrens privacy

This children’s privacy statement explains Financially Empowered’s practices with respect to the online collection and use of personal information from children under the age of thirteen and provides important information on children’s and parental rights under federal law with respect to such information.

FE Content is not directed to children under the age of thirteen and Financially Empowered does NOT knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of thirteen. In fact, Financially Empowered requires subscribers’ occupational information in part to dissuade users under the age of thirteen from subscribing. If Financially Empowered becomes aware that it has inadvertently received personal information from a user under the age of thirteen, Financially Empowered will delete such information from Financially Empowered’s records. Because Financially Empowered does not knowingly collect any personal information from children under the age of thirteen, Financially Empowered also does NOT knowingly distribute any such information to third parties. Financially Empowered does NOT knowingly allow children under the age of thirteen to distribute personal contact information.

International transfer

Our computer systems are currently based in the United States. This means Information we collect will be processed by us in the United States where data protection and privacy regulations may be subject to different requirements. If you use or visit our website from outside the United States, you consent to the collection and/or processing of the Information we collect from you in the United States.

Changes to this policy

We evaluate this Privacy Policy periodically in light of changing business practices, technology and legal requirements. As a result, we may update this Privacy Policy from time to time. In the event that Financially Empowered does update this Privacy Policy, the modified Privacy Policy will be accessible on FE Content and will be effective as of the date set forth below. We will notify you about material changes to this Privacy Policy by placing a notice on our website. Your continued use of FE Content after Financially Empowered modifies this Privacy Policy shall constitute your agreement to be bound by the terms hereof as modified.
