The Web Site use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. We may use both session cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to help us collect certain information and to enhance your experience using the Web Site.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. For example, if you personalize a page on the Web Site or register with Stabilis, a cookie helps Stabilis to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your Personal Information. When you return to the Web Site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Stabilis features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. You can find out how to do this for your specific browser by clicking “help” on your browser’s menu, or by visiting www.allaboutcookies.org. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Stabilis Services or Web Site.
If you have consented to location services through your browser’s settings, please consult your browser’s documentation regarding how to turn off location services. Note, however, that if you disable location services, you may not be able to use the full array of features and functionalities available through the Web Site and our Services.
- V. ACCESSING AND MODIFYING INFORMATION AND COMMUNICATION PREFERENCES
If you have registered for the Web Site, you may access, review, delete, and make changes to your Personal Information by following the instructions found on the Web Site or contacting us as set forth below. In addition, you may manage your receipt of marketing and non-transactional communications by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link located on the bottom of any Stabilis marketing email. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to process such requests in a timely manner. You should be aware, however, that it is not always possible to completely remove or modify information in our subscription databases. Clients and investors cannot opt out of receiving transactional e-mails related to their accounts.
- VI. SECURITY OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We take commercially reasonable steps to protect your information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. Please understand, however, that no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our databases, nor can we guarantee that the information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to and from us over the internet. In particular, e-mails or messages sent to or from the Web Site may not be secure, and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to us via those means.
We do not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under the age of 13 through the Web Site. If you are under 13, please do not give us any Personal Information. We encourage parents and legal guardians to monitor their children’s internet usage and to help enforce our Privacy Notice by instructing their children to never provide Personal Information through the Web Site without their permission. If you have reason to believe that a child under the age of 13 has provided Personal Information to us, please contact us, and we will endeavor to delete that information from our databases.
As discussed above, third parties such as advertising networks and analytics providers may collect information about your online activities over time and across different websites when you access or use the Web Site. Currently, various browsers offer a “Do Not Track” option, but there is no standard for commercial websites. At this time, we do not monitor, recognize, or honor any opt-out or do not track mechanisms, including general web browser “Do Not Track” settings and/or signals.
- X. NOTICE TO NEVADA RESIDENTS
If you are a resident of Nevada, you have the right to opt-out of the sale of personal information to third parties. You can exercise this right by contacting us at [privacy (at) stabiliscap.com] with the subject line “Nevada Do Not Sell Request” and providing us with your name and the email address associated with your account.
- XI. IMPORTANT NOTICE TO NON-U.S. RESIDENTS
The Web Site and its servers are operated in the United States. If you are located outside of the United States, please be aware that any Personal Information you provide to us will be transferred to the United States, where the privacy laws may not be as protective as those in your country of origin. By using the Web Site and by providing us Personal Information when using our Services, you consent to this transfer and our use of the data provided by you in accordance with this Privacy Notice, and you do so at your own risk.
