At Inceptia, maintaining the trust and confidence of the individuals we serve is a high priority. That’s why we want you to understand how we protect your privacy when we collect and use information about you. We respect your right to privacy and recognize our obligation to keep information about you secure and confidential. We do participate in a number of programs with commercial business partners, and we make available some of those programs to individuals using this website, but only if the user affirmatively agrees to receive information and participate in such programs. Otherwise, we do not sell or share information about you with outside marketers or other companies which may then try to sell their products or services to you.

This website is designed to provide accurate and authoritative information with regard to the subject matter covered. It is provided with the understanding that Inceptia is not engaged in rendering legal, accounting or other professional advice. Since individual situations may be fact-dependent, and if expert advice is required, the services of a competent professional should be sought. Before acting on the suitability of this information for your personal situation, please consult your accountant, financial advisor, investment counselor or other knowledgeable professional. References to specific companies, stocks or other investments are “for example only” and such information may have been previously disseminated in another format.

Click-stream data may include such information as the page served, the time, the source of the request, the type of browser making the request, the preceding page view and other such non-personal information. When analyzed, this data helps us examine how visitors arrive at the site, what type of content is most popular, what type of visitors in the aggregate are interested in particular kinds of content, and the like.
