To clarify the terminology we are using, when we use the phrase “Personal Information”, we mean contact information (e.g., your name, address, email address, and/or telephone number) and any other non-public information that is used or intended to be used to personally identify an individual, and information associated with the foregoing. When we use the phrase “Anonymous Information”, we mean information that is not associated with or linked to your Personal Information. Anonymous Information does not enable identification of or contact with, individual persons.
How We Collect Information
In general, the Personal Information we gather enables us to provide the Site and Services to you. We collect Personal Information that you submit to us voluntarily. If there is a request for information you do not want to share with us do not complete that request for information. When you request marketing material we may collect your name, job title, name of your business or employer, the physical address of your business or employer, your business phone number, your business or employer’s industry (e.g., non-profit, financial services company, luxury goods company), the size of your business, your business email, the donor management system used by your organization, the customer relationship management system used by your organization, whether or not you are an existing WealthEngine client, and your product interest. We may collect similar information when you respond to our requests for feedback, answer surveys, complete a registration for a webinar or request a white paper. If you subscribe to one of our Services we may through the Site, or in some other manner in which you voluntarily provide it, collect additional Personal Information from Subscribers, including credit card numbers and associated billing information, to charge and collect the applicable fees. We refer to this information as “Billing information”. When you communicate with us by sending us an email, we may collect and store any information that is contained in your communications with us.
When you use our Services, we collect the search criteria you use to find information about individuals in the various public data sources that are contained within our Services. This information may include an individual’s name, mailing address, phone number, business name or age.

WealthEngine conducts periodic self-assessments to verify that the attestations and assertions it makes about its privacy practices are true and that such privacy practices have been implemented as presented.
The Site is not directed to children and children are not eligible to use our Services. Protecting the privacy of children is very important to us. We do not collect or maintain Personal Information from people we actually know are under 13 years old, and no part of the Site or Services is designed to attract people under 13 years old. If we later obtain actual knowledge that a User is under 13 years old, we will take steps to remove that User's Personal Information from our databases.
