OneShare.com is relentless about protecting our members' privacy.
Our policy is clear: we won't release or sell ANY of your information.
Please review our full policy below.
Effective Date: March 27, 2012
TRUSTe for compliance with TRUSTe's program requirements including transparency, accountability and choice regarding the collection and use of your
personal information. The TRUSTe program covers the website www.oneshare.com. TRUSTe's mission, as an independent third party, is to accelerate
online trust among consumers and organizations globally through its leading privacy trustmark and innovative trust solutions.
By displaying the TRUSTe seal, OneShare.com has agreed to notify you of:
If you have any questions or concerns regarding this statement, you should first contact the OneShare.com Operations Department via email.
If you do not receive acknowledgement of your inquiry or your inquiry has not been satisfactorily addressed, you should then contact TRUSTe through the "»TRUSTe WatchDog Dispute Resolution Process".
TRUSTe will then serve as a liaison with OneShare.com to resolve your concerns.
OneShare.com understands the importance of keeping your personal information private and secure. We have adopted strict policies and guidelines of security and confidentiality. 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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).
