About the Author
Get Wise. Get Wealthy!
After many attempts to try and find the right investment channel to suit our personal situation I learnt first-hand that the most fundamental tool anyone could be equipped with to become a successful investor is knowledge. With knowledge you are wise, with wisdom comes the ability to make astute decisions and with those smart decisions, wealth will follow.
My primary goal, and why I put up this website, is to help people improve their long-term financial and investment decision making, so that investors can utilize each and every opportunity to its fullest potential.

Information Collection, Use, and Sharing
We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.
We will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request, e.g. to ship an order (if we end up having to ship stuff :-).
Your Access to and Control Over Information
You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. You can do the following at any time by using the contact form above.

We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.
Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data, if we ever do), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the web page.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only staff who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
In order to use some areas of this website and access some high-value resources, a user may be required to first complete the registration form. During registration a user is required to give certain information (such as name and email address). This information is used to contact you about the products/services on our site in which you have expressed interest. At your option, you may also provide demographic information (such as gender, age or country) about yourself, but it is not required.
We will request information from you on our order form. To buy from us, or have free items sent to you, you must provide contact information (like name and shipping address) and financial information (like credit card number, expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to fill your orders. If we have trouble processing an order, we'll use this information to contact you.
We may use "cookies" on this site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor's hard drive to help us improve your access to our site and identify repeat visitors to our site. For instance, when we use a cookie to identify you, you would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on our site.
We may share aggregated demographic information with our partners and advertisers (if we ever do embedded ads for instance). This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person.
We may use an outside shipping company to ship orders, and a credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes beyond filling your order.

We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of any other site that collects personally identifiable information.
