1. Confidentiality

Paladin will not disclose any personal information about individual users, except as specified in this Privacy Policy. With the few exceptions that are explained here, we do not give, rent, lend, or sell individual information. We would only disclose personal information in the following instances: (i) with the Users’ consent; (ii) we are required to by applicable law, or in response to legal process to protect the rights or property of Paladin, or to protect the safety of Paladin, its Users, and others; (iii) a User’s request for particular Paladin services in particular locations, and (iv) with certain contractors of Paladin who have entered into confidentiality and non-disclosure agreements.

2. Security

Paladin is committed to protecting the personal information of Users. We store information provided by Users on our secure servers and information provided to a third-party service provider for processing the payment of any applicable User service fees is encrypted using SSL technology.

3. Information Collection and Use

We take the issue of safeguarding your privacy and confidentiality seriously as a User of our services, tools, and information. We exercise care to ensure that the personal information Users may provide to us for the purposes set forth below is kept confidential. Our policy is to collect the minimum amount of information we need to provide services, tools, and information to Users. In addition, we collect IP addresses for our sites’ security and to provide us with information regarding the Users of our sites to help us improve the sites’ performance and services.

We collect the following types of personal information on our websites: Name, e-mail, telephone number, firm name, and website URL. We use a device known as a “cookie.” A cookie is a piece of data stored on the User’s hard drive that contains information about a User. There are two types of cookies: persistent cookies and session cookies. Persistent cookies get written to a file called a “cookie jar” on the User’s hard drive and are retrieved every time a site is accessed. Session cookies are similar to persistent cookies except that the information does not get written to the hard drive and disappears when Users close their browser. We do not link the information we store in cookies to any personally identifiable information that Users submit on our sites.

Paladin uses session cookies. If Users do not accept cookies, they may still use our sites’ services, tools, and information; however, some Users will not be able to use the internal, password protected service sections. These sections require a cookie that is set to identify a particular computer to our web servers. This cookie is called a Session ID and consists of a 32-digit sequence of random numbers and letters generated by Paladin web servers each time one of Paladin’s sites is called up.

The use of cookies by our partners and service providers is not covered by our privacy statement. We do not have access or control over these cookies.  Our partners and service providers may use session ID cookies to make it easier for you to navigate our site.

In addition to cookies, Paladin may also use tiny electronic images (“single-pixel GIFs” or “Web beacons”), which allow Paladin to count Users who have visited specific pages or accessed certain cookies.  Paladin may use single-pixel GIFs in the following ways: (i) to count and recognize Users; (ii) to conduct research on behalf of some partners on their websites and for auditing purposes; (iii) to determine aggregate information about Users, including demographic and usage information. In general, any electronic image viewed as part of a web page, including an ad banner, can act as a web beacon. Paladin does not link the information Paladin stores in cookies to any personal information Users submit while using the services, tools, and information on Paladin sites.

As is true of most Web sites, we use third party tracking-utility partners to gather certain information automatically and store it in log files.  This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.

We use this information, which does not identify individual Users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our User base as a whole.

4. Advertising

We may partner with a third party ad network to either display advertising on our web site or to manage our advertising on other sites.  Our ad network partner uses cookies and web beacons to collect non-personally identifiable information about User activities on this web site and other web sites so we can provide targeted advertising based on User interests.  If a User do not wish to have this information used for the purpose of serving-up targeted ads, Users may opt-out by clicking here.  This does not opt Users out of being served all advertising. Users will continue to receive generic ads.

5. Service Providers

Paladin uses third parties to provide Web Hosting and other services for Paladin managed websites. When Users submit data to Paladin for processing, Paladin will share User data, as necessary with the designated third parties so they can provide their specific services. These third parties are prohibited from using Users’ personal information for any other purpose.

6. Use of Personal Information

Paladin collects personal information to provide Users with specialized services that contain relevant content. In addition, Paladin conducts research on investor and advisor demographics, interests, and behavior based on information that is voluntarily provided to Paladin. This information is compiled and analyzed on a generalized basis and is not User specific. Paladin does not share, sell, trade, or rent Users’ personal information to third parties for unknown reasons.

7. Direct Mailings/Service-Related Announcements

Paladin sends Users strictly service-related announcements on rare occasions when it is necessary to do so. For instance, if a Paladin service is temporarily suspended for maintenance, Paladin may send Users an email. Generally, Users may not opt-out of these communications, which are usually not promotional in nature. If Users do not wish to receive them, Users have the option of deactivating their accounts. To deactivate a User account, Users must notify Paladin via email ( or by phone at 601.666.6316. Paladin may also use User email addresses to send Users free special research reports, newsletters, and surveys that provide current information about financial professionals and related commentary. There is an opt-out function on each of the reports and newsletters.

8. Tell a Friend, Family Member or Associate

If Users choose to tell a friend about Paladin services, we will ask Users for the User’s friend’s name and email address. We will automatically send a User’s friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit this site.  Paladin stores this information for the purpose of sending this one-time email and free, informative newsletters, and research reports. A User’s friend may contact us at to request that Paladin remove User’s contact information from Paladin’s database or use the opt-out function on the newsletter or research report.
