Privacy Policy


We at SPAC WIRE LLC d/b/a SPAC RESEARCH (“SPAC RESEARCH” “We,” “Us,” or “Our”) understand how important privacy is to our Users, Subscribers, and Visitors (sometimes referred to as “You” or “Your”). In the spirit of complete transparency, please review this Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy”), which explains how We collect and use Your information through our Site (as defined in our Terms of Use) and the choices You may have in keeping Your information private.

This Privacy Policy applies to the Site and the Services (as defined in the Terms of Use). Naturally, our Privacy Policy does not apply to other websites or companies that We do not own or control. We encourage You to carefully review the privacy policies of any third party services You access.

Capitalized terms that are not defined in this Privacy Policy have the meaning given to them in our Terms of Use.

We strive to be transparent in Our data collection and use practices. This is the type of personal information We may collect about You.

SECTION 1. HOW WE COLLECT AND USE INFORMATION

We collect the following types of information about You:

Information directly provided by You: When registering for a SPAC RESEARCH account, We ask for certain information that We collect from each Subscriber. Also, at times We may retain any information voluntarily provided by You to Us through postings, messages, or other means on the Site as well as Your general participation on our Site. Once You register for a SPAC RESEARCH account, We may keep records of Your activities in connection with the Site and the Services by using a variety of third party tools. We use this information to operate, maintain, and tailor our features and functionality to best suit Your needs.

Your account information, including name, email, and mailing address, shall be made available when applicable, in order to fulfill your subscription or any renewals. In addition, we shall securely transmit Your credit card and billing address information (“Billing Information”) for processing of payments associated with the Services and Your subscription. We may store Your credit card information, billing address, phone number, and other personal information necessary to charge You for future charges associated with your subscription.

Information received from third parties: Through the functionality of the Site, We may receive information about You from third parties. Such information may be stored along with the other personal information We have gathered directly from You. From time to time, We may send You emails containing newsletters or other updates, provided that You have opted-in to receiving such news from Us. We may also use Your information to send You service-related emails (e.g., account verification, reminders, changes/updates to features of our Service, technical, and security notices).

Information collected through technology: We automatically collect certain types of information when You access and use the Site. Specifically, when You visit the Site, We may send one or more cookies (a small text file containing a string of alphanumeric characters) to Your computer that uniquely identifies Your browser and allows the Site to help You log into our system faster and enhance Your navigation through the Site. A cookie may also convey information to Us about how You use the Site and/or Services (e.g., the pages you view, the links you click on, and other actions you take) as well as track your usage of the Site over time. We may compile a log file of all collected data from Your browser or mobile device each time You access and use the Site (the “Log File Data”). The Log File Data may include anonymous information, such as Your web request, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, information about Your mobile device, referring / exit pages and URLs, number of clicks and how You interact with links on the Services, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed, and other such information. We may employ clear gifs (also known as web beacons), which are used to anonymously track the online usage patterns of our Users. In addition, We may also use clear gifs in HTML-based emails sent to Our Users to track which emails were opened and which links were clicked on. This information provides Us with a more accurate reporting as to how We can improve the Services by adding new features that best fit Your needs. All of these tools collect information sent by Your browser or mobile device, including the pages You visit, the third party applications You use, and other information that assists Us in analyzing and improving the Site.

We use or may use the data collected through cookies, log files, device identifiers, and clear gifs information to: (a) remember information so that You will not have to re-enter it during next time you visit the Site; (b) provide custom, personalized content and information; (c) to provide and monitor the effectiveness of the Site; (d) monitor aggregate metrics such as total number of visitors, traffic, usage, and demographic patterns on the Site; (e) diagnose or fix technology problems; and (f) help the overall efficiency of the Site.

Your privacy is important to Us. As a Subscriber, We only share Your personal information in very limited circumstances.

SECTION 2. HOW WE SHARE YOUR INFORMATION

2.1 Who we may share Your information with: We will share Your information with third-parties for payment processing services. We may share Your information with those that provide Us with technology services (e.g. web hosting and analytics services), but strictly for the purpose of carrying out their work for Us. We may be required to share Your information with law enforcement or other third parties when compelled by court order, legal processes, statutes and regulations, or Our Terms of Use. Also, We may share Your information if We believe, in good faith, that disclosure is necessary to protect the rights, property or personal safety of Our other Subscribers. We may also share aggregate or anonymous data, including personal data that has been stripped of personally identifying characteristics, with third parties. We may use the information we collect to display advertisements to Our advertisers' target audiences. Even though We do not disclose Your personal information for these purposes without Your consent, if You click on or otherwise interact with an advertisement, the advertiser may assume that You meet its target criteria.

2.2 What happens in the event of a change of control within the Company: If We sell, divest, or transfer the business or a portion of Our business, Your information may be transferred, provided that the new provider has agreed to data privacy standards no less stringent than Our own. We may also transfer Your personal information – under the same conditions – in the course of mergers, acquisitions, bankruptcies, dissolutions, reorganizations, liquidations, similar transactions or proceedings involving all or a portion of our business.

We take strong measures to keep Your data safe and secure.

SECTION 3. HOW WE STORE AND PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION

3.1 Storage and processing: The information collected through the Site may be stored and processed in any country in which SPAC RESEARCH or its subsidiaries, affiliates or service providers maintain facilities.

3.2 Keeping your information safe: SPAC RESEARCH maintains strict administrative, technical and physical procedures to protect information stored in our servers, which are located in the United States. Access to information is limited (through user/password credentials and software systems) to only those employees who require it to perform their job functions. We use industry-standard encryption technology to safeguard the account registration process and sign-up information. Other security safeguards include, but are not limited to, data encryption, firewalls, and physical access controls to building and files.
