Please note that the practices of IPO Catalyst, Inc., its affiliates, and agents (hereinafter “IPO DOCS”), with respect to personal information, are now governed by this Privacy Policy as amended from time to time, and not the Privacy Policy in effect at the time the personal information was collected. We encourage users to regularly review our Privacy Policy.


This document sets forth the IPO DOCS Online Privacy Policy (the “Privacy Policy”) for this website,, (the Site). If you have objections to the Privacy Policy, you should not access or use the Site. This Privacy Policy does not govern privacy practices associated with offline activities or other IPO Catalyst, Inc. websites, except as expressly set forth in the section entitled “Data not collected on this site.” IPO DOCS also adheres to the United States rules on privacy and The European Union Safe Harbor principles as set forth by the United States Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information from the European Union.

Changes In Privacy Policy

All personal information (“personal information” is defined as any information that identifies or can be used to identify, contact, or locate the person to whom such information pertains) that we collect and maintain will be subject to this Privacy Policy, as amended from time to time. IPO DOCS reserves the right to change the Privacy Policy from time to time at its sole discretion and will provide notice of material changes on the home page of the Site. If as the result of such changes, you want to alter the ways in which IPO DOCS is allowed to use your personal information, you can do so by following the procedure described in the section entitled Updating your personal information and privacy preferences. You will be deemed to have been made aware of, and will be subject to, the changes to the Privacy Policy after such notice has been posted with the following exception: If at the time you provide personal information to IPO DOCS you are given the opportunity (as you currently are) to limit how such information will be used to communicate with you, either by IPO DOCS or by third parties, IPO DOCS will not change your preference in this regard without your express consent. However, if IPO DOCS sells assets (or the assets of a division or subsidiary) to another entity, or IPO DOCS (or a division or subsidiary) is acquired by or merged with another entity, IPO DOCS may provide to such entity customer information that is related to that part of our business that was sold to or merged with the other entity without your consent, but IPO DOCS will provide notice of such asset sales, acquisitions, or mergers on this Site.

Entities Collecting Personal Information

Personal Information On This Site Is Collected By IPO DOCS®

The Site contains links to other sites at which personal information is collected. In such instances, unless expressly provided to the contrary, the collection and use of your personal information will be governed by the privacy policy applicable to that site. That privacy policy should identify the entity that is collecting your personal information; however, IPO DOCS will take reasonable precautions to conduct business with third parties that have Privacy Policies that closely resemble our policy.

Updating Your Personal Information And Privacy Preferences

You have the right to access and correct your personal information and privacy preferences at any time. With respect to Registration Information (as defined in the section entitled “Protection of your personal information”), this may be accomplished by linking to your account, where you can view and make changes to your personal information. You may also access and correct your personal information and privacy preferences (such as whether you wish to receive promotional communications from IPO DOCS or third parties) by visiting our online webpage at

Collection Of Personal Information

As a visitor to this Site, you can engage in many activities without providing any personal information. In connection with other activities, such as utilizing online service applications, IPO DOCS may ask you to provide certain information about yourself by filling out and submitting an online form. It is completely optional for you to engage in these activities. If you elect to engage in these activities, however, IPO DOCS may ask that you provide us personal information, such as your first and last name, mailing address (including ZIP code), e-mail address, employer, job title and department, telephone and facsimile numbers, and other personal information. When ordering products or services on the Site, you may be asked to provide a credit card number. Depending upon the activity, some of the information that we ask you to provide is identified as mandatory and some as voluntary. If you do not provide the mandatory data with respect to a particular activity, you will not be able to engage in that activity. When you use the Site, IPO DOCS or third parties authorized by IPO DOCS may also collect certain technical and routing information about your computer to facilitate your use of the Site and its services.

For example, we may log environmental variables, such as browser type, operating system, CPU speed, and the Internet Protocol (IP) address of your computer. We use these environmental variables to facilitate and track your use of the Site and its services. IPO DOCS also uses such environmental variables to measure traffic patterns on the Site. Without expressly informing you in each particular circumstance, we do not match such information with any of your personal information. When you submit personal information to IPO DOCS through the Site, you understand and agree that this information may be transferred across national boundaries and may be stored and processed in any of the countries in which IPO DOCS maintains offices including, without limitation, the United States.

You also acknowledge that in certain countries or with respect to certain activities, the collection, transfer, storage, and processing of your information may be undertaken by trusted vendors of IPO DOCS. Such vendors are bound by contract not to use your personal information for their own purposes or provide it to any third parties. One instance where this could occur is in conjunction with framed pages in which the URL for the pages is not visible, and the pages are being hosted by a vendor of IPO DOCS. IPO DOCS has established relationships with various service providers whose services are available to you from the Site or from websites that are linked to the Site.

Typically, these providers offer services that IPO DOCS customers might find useful, such as those that can be used in conjunction with IPO DOCS services and products. In order to use those services, you may be required to provide personal information to the providers. Unless expressly provided to the contrary, personal information that you provide while you are visiting a provider’s website will be subject to the privacy policy posted on such site, and personal information that you provide while on the Site in conjunction with a provider’s service will be subject to this Privacy Policy. You should be aware that our agreements with these service providers often provide that they will share with IPO DOCS personal information collected from you.

In such instances, IPO DOCS may use this information in a manner consistent with this Privacy Policy. In the situation where sites have an IPO DOCS “look and feel” and you reasonably believe you are on an IPO DOCS site, the site is collecting information in a solely intermediary capacity and does not use personal information for secondary purposes. In order to reduce errors in our database, authenticate our users, and prevent abuse of our system, we may on occasion supplement the personal information you submit to us with information from third-party sources.

For example, we may supplement your Registration Information with address information provided by the U.S. Postal Service to qualify your information and prevent errors in our database. As permissible, we may also supplement the information you provide to us with demographic and other information (such as age or interest in photography) stored in third-party databases in order to make it more likely that marketing communications we send will be of interest to you.

How Your Personal Information Is Used

IPO DOCS collects your information in order to record and support your participation in the activities you select. If you subscribe to a service or register a product, for example, the information is used to register your rights, if any, to technical support or other benefits that may be made available to registered users. As another example, if you enter a contest, information is collected to qualify the entry and to contact you regarding the contest or prize awards. Your personal information is also used to track customer preferences and keep you informed about product upgrades, special offers, and other products and services of IPO DOCS and selected third parties unless you have opted not to receive such communications or such communications are prohibited by law. IPO DOCS may collect information about the use of the Site; such as the types of services used and how many users we receive daily. This information is collected in aggregate form, without identifying any user individually. IPO DOCS may use this aggregate, nonidentifying statistical data for statistical analysis, marketing, or similar promotional purposes.

Your Choices With Respect To Personal Information

IPO DOCS recognizes and appreciates the importance of responsible use of information collected on the Site. IPO DOCS may communicate information to you regarding products, services, and special offers available from IPO DOCS or selected third parties unless you have opted not to receive such communications or such communications are prohibited by law, although we may find it necessary to communicate with you regarding your use of the services on the Site. Except in the particular circumstances described in this Privacy Policy, IPO DOCS will also not provide your name to other companies or organizations without your consent. There are other instances in which IPO DOCS may divulge your personal information, such as where required by law, regulation, or litigation. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that such disclosure should be made for reasons of national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance.

Protection Of Your Personal Information

The personal information that you provide in connection with registering yourself as a user of IPO DOCS products or services or registering an IPO DOCS product is classified as Registration Information. Registration Information is protected in several ways. Access by you to your Registration Information is available through a password and unique customer ID selected by you. This password is encrypted. We recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. In addition, your Registration Information resides on a secure server that only selected IPO DOCS personnel and contractors have access to via password. IPO DOCS encrypts your personal information and thereby strives to prevent unauthorized parties from viewing such information when it is transmitted to IPO DOCS. Personal information that you provide that does not constitute Registration Information also resides on a secure server and is accessible only to selected IPO DOCS personnel and contractors via password. Since this information is not accessible by you, you will not be asked to select a password in order to view or modify such information. Please note that any information you post to a public bulletin board or chat room, such as the IPO DOCS User-to-User Forums (the “Forums”), is available to all persons accessing that location. Your e-mail address will not automatically be posted on the Forums unless you modify the default setting to permit that. Your e-mail address would then be available to all persons accessing the Forums. In addition, you should be aware that the Forums offer a service in which subscribers are e-mailed a copy of all messages posted to the Forums on a particular topic. Consequently, if you post a message to the Forums, your e-mail address will be sent to those subscribers who have indicated an interest in the topic of your message.

Data Not Collected On This Site

Personal information that is not collected on the Site is not generally subject to this Privacy Policy. However, personal information submitted on physical product registration cards is classified as Registration Information and is subject to this Privacy Policy.

Use Of Cookie

When you visit this Site, you can browse the Site and access important information without revealing your identity. In order to improve our Site, we and our vendors use “cookies” to track your visit. A cookie is small amount of data that is transferred to your browser by a web server and can only be read by the server that gave it to you. It functions as your identification card and enables IPO DOCS to record your passwords, purchases, and preferences. It cannot be executed as code or deliver viruses. Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether or not to accept it. (For some web pages that require an authorization, cookies are not optional. Users choosing not to accept cookies will probably not be able to access those pages.) While IPO DOCS and our vendors use cookies to track your visit to the Site, and our web servers automatically log the IP/Internet address of your computer, IPO DOCS does not generally use this information to identify you personally. However, if you expressly provide consent for the Site to “remember” the unique identifier that you select when you register for various activities on the Site, that unique identifier will be stored on a cookie on your computer, linked to your Registration Information, and your navigation path around the Site will be tracked. We associate this data to understand how our Site and services are being used so we can understand our customers and offer appropriate products and services. IPO DOCS also hires other companies to place our banner ads on other websites and to perform tracking and reporting activities (“third-party advertisement servers”). Aside from IP addresses, they do not collect personally identifiable information in doing this work for us, and we do not give any personally identifiable information to them. Third-party advertisement servers are subject to their own privacy policies.

Breach Notifications

If we become aware of a data breach with regard to user’s data we will notify all relevant parties within 72 hours of such discovery.

Data Transfers

IPO Docs®’ registered address is in Pflugerville, Texas. Personal Information that we collect may be transferred to, and stored at, any of our affiliates, partners or service providers which may be inside or outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”). By submitting your personal data, you agree to such transfers. Your Personal Information may be transferred to countries that do not have the same data protection laws as the country in which you initially provided the information. When we transfer or disclose your Personal Information to other countries, we will protect that information as described in this Privacy Policy.
