Sharing and Disclosure
The cornerstone of this Privacy Policy is our commitment to keep your personal information confidential. Hedgez does not sell, license, lease or otherwise disclose your personal information to any third party for purposes of marketing by the third party or for any reason, except as described below. To provide our products and services, we may disclose your information to the following parties:

  • Hedge Funds - We may share your information with our participating Hedge Fund managers. They will use the information to contact you and provide you with additional information on their funds and answer any questions you have.
  • Investment Brokers and Investment Advisors - We may share your information with investment brokers and investment advisors if, while using the site, you indicate an interest in a product or service offered by an investment broker or investment advisor with whom Hedgez has a relationship.
  • Hedgez Affiliates - We may share information with present or future affiliates, including our subsidiaries, joint ventures or other companies under common control, where it may be used to provide joint services or for such purposes as internal statistics, strategic decision-making, customer reviews, identifying customer trends, customer verification, fraud prevention and security. You may limit our affiliates from marketing their products or services to you based on personal information that we collect about you and share with them. This information may include your name, email address, mailing address, age, employment status, general account and demographic information and account history with us. Your choice to limit marketing offers from our affiliates will apply until you tell us to change your choice. You can opt back in at any time. To limit affiliate marketing offers, contact us by e-mail at
  • Service Providers - We may share information with service providers under contract who help with our business operations and internal functions, for example, verifying our users, processing accounts, order fulfillment, client service, client satisfaction surveys or other data collection activities relevant to our business, maintaining the site, and providing related services. Our service providers are required to protect personal information in a manner similar to the way we protect personal information and to use it only for the services they provide to us.
  • Legal and Other Disclosures - We may disclose information when permitted by law or under the good-faith belief that such disclosure is necessary under applicable law; to comply with legal process served on Hedgez; to protect the property or interests of Hedgez, its agents and employees; or to protect personal safety or the public.
  • Assets - As our business evolves, Hedgez may sell, transfer or otherwise share some or all of its assets in connection with a merger, reorganization or sale of assets, or in the event of bankruptcy. In such an event, personal information may be one of the assets transferred.

If we propose to share information in a manner not covered in this Privacy Policy, we will notify you of this change by posting an addendum on our site and if appropriate, provide you an opportunity to opt out of such use.

Email Communications
Because we do not share your personal information with non-affiliated third parties for marketing purposes, there is no need for you to opt out of such uses. At any time, you have the ability to opt out of receiving marketing communications from Hedgez, but you may not opt out of administrative emails while you are a registered Hedgez user. In such cases, you can opt out by using the link provided at the bottom of each marketing email.

Cookies and Web Beacons
Hedgez, our service providers, and other members of our corporate family who provide us with joint services, will sometimes place anonymous cookies or web beacons on your computer when you visit the site. We use these cookies and web beacons to recognize returning users, provide relevant content, measure traffic and activity on the site, monitor and improve our services and protect against fraud. You can block cookies by changing the settings on your browser (consult your browser help menu to find out how), but doing so may prevent us from delivering certain services to you. Your browser must be set to accept cookies in order to access Hedgez as a registered user.

Your Hedgez Account
You can request that we close your Hedgez account by e-mailing Customer Service at After we close your account, we may retain some information to comply with law, prevent fraud, assist with investigations, resolve disputes, analyze or troubleshoot programs, enforce our User Agreement and take actions otherwise permitted by law. If your account or membership is terminated or suspended, we may retain some information to prevent re-registration.

We view protection of your privacy as a very important principle. We store and process your information on computers located in the United States and Canada that are protected by physical as well as technological security devices. We have implemented physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that are designed to protect the security of your information in compliance with applicable U.S. federal and state regulations. These include advanced firewall and password protection for our databases, physical access controls to our buildings and files, and restricted access to your personal information to employees that need to know that information to operate, develop or improve our services.

Links to Other Sites
The Hedgez site may contain links to other websites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of these sites. If you have concerns about how another website collects and uses information about you, make sure to read that site's own privacy policy.

We may change this policy from time to time, and we will post the amended terms on the site and notify you by email of major changes. Amended terms will take effect immediately for new users, and 30 days after they are posted for existing users. You should review this Privacy Policy periodically to remain informed of any changes. You agree to accept posting of a revised Privacy Policy electronically on this site as actual notice to you.

We are strongly committed to our relationship with you and want to be sure you understand the steps we have taken to protect your personal information. If you have any questions, complaints or comments, please e-mail us at
