On our Web site, we use the latest Web site security. In addition, only employees trained in the proper handling of customer information who are required to access the information for your gift processing are able to view your information.

Our Web site is an extension and now an integral part of our traditional business − it is a convenient service tool for you to use to order One Share of Stock gifts. Naturally, we maintain a record of your account to service you, including shipping and billing addresses and recent purchases.

Our Commitment To Privacy And Security

The OneShare.com guarantee: We are adamant about protecting our customers' privacy. Our policy is clear: We do not sell any of the information you provide to us without your clear permission. Our site uses a secure server (SSL) to encrypt all of your personal information. We use commercially acceptable security measures to protect from the loss, misuse and alteration of your information under our control.

Legal Disclosure: We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our Web site. If OneShare.com is involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our Web site of any change in ownership or uses of your personal information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your personal information.

Your Personal Information Collected We collect and store contact information in various places on our website, including newsletter sign-ups, questionnaires, surveys, sweepstakes, and electronic mail. If you choose to provide us with this information, we may use this data to tailor your experience at our site, show you content, products or services that we think you might be interested in, and display the content according to your preferences. This is done by the use of "cookies". The term "cookies" and how it is used is explained in it's dedicated section below ("Use Of Cookies"). We also collect and store the following other information about you when you visit our web site: your IP address, current Web page, pages visited and time spent on our site, and browser you are using.

OneShare.com collects and stores the following personal information from the purchaser and gift recipient when a purchase is executed from our web site, catalog, fax, or telephone (however, please understand the TRUSTe program only covers the web site at this time): name, telephone number, address, e-mail address, social security number, citizenship, credit card number (if applicable), and type of stock purchased. OneShare.com sales staff also collects data on what we call Sales Source. Sales Source is the method of how you visited and/or was informed of the OneShare.com website (examples: search engine, television ad, newspaper/magazine article, word of mouth from a friend). We also collect and store the following personal information when you sign up to receive our E-mail Newsletter or request a catalog; name, address, and electronic mail address. All of this information is stored internally by OneShare.com.

How Your Personal Information Is Used We DO NOT share your personally identifiable information, except to process and fulfill your order. The OneShare.com website uses an order form so that you can request information, products, and services. Contact information (e-mail address, telephone number, etc.) from the order form is used to send your orders and information about our company to you (however, you can opt-out of promotional e-mails. See Below). Your contact information is also used to get in touch with you when necessary to fulfill your order. Contact information for gift recipients may also be collected solely in order to ensure correct gift delivery and proper registration of the stock purchased. Financial information (credit card numbers, credit card expiration dates, billing address, etc.) that is collected is used to bill you for products and services. Financial information is not used for any other purpose than billing.

When you consent to receive information and purchase stock from any of the companies OneShare.com provides, or arranges on your behalf, we will provide these companies with your Recipient contact information and social security number. This is necessary as the product we sell is a "live" security and the Recipient is benefited with all shareholder rights in the company in which the stock is purchased.

OneShare.com uses aggregate demographic and other information it collects for sales and marketing purposes and shares that information with current and prospective investors, transaction fulfillment companies, and issuing companies. Demographic studies are performed by a third party using a Zip+Four method only. A Zip+Four method entails a study such as, for example, income level, educational level, and age profile in which a collective group of people live by postal zip code. This information is used solely for OneShare.com staff to better understand the client base it serves. None of this information as shared contains any personal identifiers, nor is it tied to your personally identifiable information once shared.

Each month OneShare.com will send an electronic mailing (Newsletter) to everyone who has provided us with an electronic mailing address. If you receive such a mailing and wish to opt-out of any future mailings, simply follow the instructions in the e-mail to Unsubscribe. At times, OneShare.com will also use traditional avenues of contact using ground mail (or, snail mail) unless you have opted out of communication with OneShare.com. See the "Choice/Opt-Out" section below.

How Third Party Information Is Used When a customer makes a purchase for someone other than themselves, information is collected on the person who the purchase is intended for (called the Recipient). Recipient information collected entails name, address, e-mail (if available and provided), and social security number (if available and provided). The Recipients information is solely used to fulfill the order request by the Purchaser.

OneShare.com institutes a website feature in which a person can send a referral message ("E-mail this site to a friend") to someone to notify a person of the OneShare.com website. This is solely a one time "invite" e-mail and information provided to send this e-mail (such as name and e-mail address) is not stored and kept.

Service Providers We use VeriSign to process credit card transactions on our site. We share credit card information as necessary for the third party to provide this service. VeriSign is prohibited from using personally identifiable information for any other purpose.

We use a third party to ship our products to you; your personal information is necessary to provide this service. The third party is not authorized to use your information for any other purpose.

Choice/Opt-Out OneShare.com hereby provides express disclosure that the user will automatically receive our newsletter and promotional material via both electronic and traditional methods at the point of collection. Users who no longer wish to receive our newsletter may opt-out by following the instructions in the newsletter. Each newsletter has an unsubscribe link. Clicking this link will automatically unsubscribe the user from further OneShare.com mailings. In addition, to deactivate your personal information, the user may also contact us by phone (1.888.777.6919), email, or postal mail (OneShare.com, 3450 Third Street, Building 1D, San Francisco, CA 94124).


Use Of Cookies A cookie is a very small text file that is placed on your hard drive by a Web server. Cookies cannot be executed like programs or used as viruses, and the server that placed them can only read them. A cookie cannot access your hard drive and obtain personal information about you, unless you have supplied your information to the site delivering the cookie; it can only be used to store information that you have given the site (by filling out an online order form, for example). We do not link the information we store in cookies to any personally identifiable information you submit while on our site.

We use a third-party tracking service called Atlas that uses cookies to track non-personally identifiable information about visitors to our site via newsletters, search engines, and datafeeds. It allows us to more accurately determine marketing ROI.

Cookies also tell us whether a user has visited us before. We use this information to foster improved service. When a user places an order, a session identifier (cookie) is created and your shopping cart information is stored. This information is cleared once the user finalizes the purchase at the time of check out. If the user does not check out, the session identifier and thus, contents of the user's shopping cart are stored for 45 days.

Most Web browsers allow you to customize your cookies settings. If you prefer to choose which sites you will accept cookies from, you can do so by using your browser's settings. Our third party partners employ clear gifs (a.k.a. Web Beacons/Web Bugs), images, and scripts that help them better manage content on our site. We do not tie the information gathered to our Customers' or Users' personally identifiable information.

How To Update Your Personal Information Registered Users and Customers can update their information at any time by contacting OneShare.com Operations Department directly via email or, via telephone at 1.888.777.6919 (Monday through Friday from 9am to 5pm Pacific Standard Time).

Data Retention We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services. Please contact us if you wish to cancel your account or request that we no longer use your information to provide you services. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.

Notification Of Changes If we are going to use your personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection we will notify you via e-mail prior to the change becoming effective. You will have a choice as to whether or not we use your information in this different manner. However, if you have opted out of all communication with OneShare.com, or deleted/deactivated your account, then you will not be contacted, nor will your personal information be used in this new manner. In addition, if we make any material changes in our privacy practices that do not affect user information already stored in our database, we will post the notice on our web site notifying users of the change. In some cases where we post the notice we will also e-mail users, who have opted to receive communications from us, notifying them of the changes in our privacy practices.
