Privacy Policy

The website (“Site”) for FundingNomad (“FundingNomad”, “we” or “us”) was created to provide information about our company, investment opportunities (“Services”) to investors using the site to invest (in each case, a “User”, and collectively, “Users”). At FundingNomad we take your privacy seriously. We collect and store certain information as required by law to perform services for you, but are committed to protect your personal and financial information.

This Privacy Policy specifies the personal information that we ask you to provide and how we treat this information. This Privacy Policy is part of our Terms of Use, and all the terms and conditions set forth in the Terms of Use also apply to this Privacy Policy.

Changes to Privacy Policy

If we combine or associate information from other sources with personal information that you provide directly to us through or in connection with the Services, we will treat the combined information as personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

As is the case with many websites, FundingNomad receives, tracks and stores certain nonidentifying information about you (e.g., whether or not you register to access Services) and aggregate personal data. Such information may include:

  • which of our web pages you access and how frequently you access them;
  • exit pages;
  • click stream data;
  • and the dates and times that you visit the Site.


This information may be collected passively using a variety of technologies, including but not limited to, cookies, page tags or similar tools. As with cookies, the web surfing information is anonymous.
The Site may use this information and pool or aggregate it with other information for administrative purposes to assess usage, and to assess performance of our services and how users interact with the website.

Children’s Privacy

FundingNomad does not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 18 without consent of their legal guardian. We encourage parents and legal guardians to monitor their children's Internet usage and to help enforce our Privacy Policy by instructing their children never to provide Personal Information on this Site without their permission.
If you are a parent or guardian and discover that your child under the age of 18 has a registered account with the Services or FundingNomad has received any Personal Information of that child without your consent, you may contact us, and we will endeavor to delete that information from our databases.

What We Provide To Third Parties

Information is shared with third parties only to the extent necessary for us to perform data processing, reporting, tax documentation, and transactions. Our partners are legally required to keep your information private and secure. Some of the information that may be provided to a third party includes:

  • If you invest, we will identify you on tax returns and other government forms.
  • We might use third party services to verify that you are an accredited investor and for other similar purposes.
  • We might use third parties to perform functions relating to the operation of the Site.
  • We will provide information if we believe we are required to do so by law.
  • If FundingNomad  is sold, all information will be transferred to our successor.

We do not provide any of your personal information to third parties for marketing purposes. However, we reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights or to comply with legal process.

Our Affiliates

We may provide information to one or more of our affiliates, meaning a company that we control or that is under common control with us. All of our affiliates will also be bound by the terms of this Privacy Policy.

Modifying and Deleting Information

To modify or delete your personal information, please log in and update your profile. We may retain certain information as required by law or for necessary business purposes.

Notices and other communications

FundingNomad will send you emails from time to time related to required elements of your transactions on the Site (confirmations, change of status or security purposes) from which you cannot opt out. You will receive emails when an investment opportunity is available only after you have registered and under proper security laws. Besides these, you may receive progress updates on your investments. We may also send you responses to emails you send us, and may keep record of correspondence. From time to time, we will also send user surveys, requests for user feedback regarding user experience and Site operations, or marketing offers from us or from us on behalf of our marketing partners. Completing these surveys, answering requests for feedback, or accepting any offer is strictly voluntary. If you do not wish to receive these surveys, user feedback emails, and/or marketing offers, please opt out in any offer email you receive from us. It is your responsibility to ensure that you maintain a current email address with FundingNomad, and notify us if there are any changes.

Security Policy (How We Protect Your Data)

We have put in place systems designed to protect your personal information, including:
  • We employ a secure channel, using Secure Sockets Layer encryption, the standard for secure Internet network connections, to protect information exchanged over the Internet between your web browser and our servers.
  • Our employees and agents are required to abide by this Privacy Policy.
  • We use automated tools to monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload information, change information, or otherwise seek to gain unauthorized entry into our systems.
  • We take additional steps to protect especially sensitive information, including the information you provide on our Investor Questionnaire.
  • In general, we use the same level of data encryption that is used by banks.

Nevertheless, no security system is perfect. We cannot guaranty that your personal information will remain private. If we learn of a security breach, we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate steps. We may post notice on the Site in such an event.

Privacy Steps You Can Take

Users should take precautions to maximize security. For example, choose well formed, difficult to guess passwords. An industry standard, updated antivirus as well as firewall software for malware and external attack protection is recommended. These software applications should do regular sweeps of your computer as well for continual protection from malware. After you are done using the website, log out and close the browser.

Users should be aware of “phishing” – a scheme whereby a scammer will try to bring unsuspecting users to a website by using genuine looking email claiming to be a legitimate company. They may try to get you to divulge login information to gain fraudulent access to your accounts. Note that FundingNomad will never send you email asking for your login information. Users should protect themselves by never providing sensitive personal or login information via email communication or otherwise. FundingNomad's verified website addresses are: https://www.fundingnomad.com, http://www.fundingnomad.com or http://fundingnomad.com

Cookies

A cookie is a small amount of data sent to your browser from our computer. We use cookies to provide you with a tailored user experience and to make it easier for you to use a website upon a future visit. You may set your browser so that it does not accept cookies, although this would affect the usability of the Site. We may also use socialled "pixel tags" to improve usability – for example, to send email messages in a format you can read and let us know whether our emails have been opened.

Third Party Sites

You might navigate to websites maintained by third parties by clicking on a link from our Site, including through a banner advertisement. Once you leave our Site, the terms of this Privacy Policy no longer apply and we have no control over the collection or use of personal information you provide to such websites.
