Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy is designed to tell you about our practices regarding collection,  use, and disclosure of nformation that you may provide via this site. Please be sure to read this entire Privacy Policy before using or submitting information to this site.

Regulation S-P, promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission, requires the Trust to take measures to safeguard the personal information of its customers. Accordingly, the Trust must take certain steps to ensure that third party service providers, to the extent they receive personal information of the Trust’s customers, comply with the Trust’s privacy policy in handling such information.

In the course of its relationship with clients and shareholders (collectively, “clients”), the FactorShares Trust (the “Trust”) may gather and maintain personal, non-public information regarding its shareholders’ or interested investors. The Trust is committed to maintaining the privacy and confidentiality of this shareholder information. Accordingly, the Trust has adopted a privacy policy in accordance with SEC privacy regulations which require investment companies to determine and disclose how they treat nonpublic information about their clients and potential clients. This site is governed solely by applicable Federal and State laws and governmental regulations in the United States. Use of this site constitutes your consent to application of such laws and regulations and to our Privacy Policy.

YOUR CONSENT

By using this site, you agree with the terms of this Privacy Policy. Whenever you submit information via this site, you consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of that information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

ABOUT CHILDREN

This site is not intended for children under the age of 13. We will not knowingly collect information from site visitors in this age group.

ACTIVE INFORMATION COLLECTION

Like many Web sites, this site actively collects information from its visitors both by asking you specific questions and by permitting you to communicate directly with us via e-mail, feedback forms, and/or chat rooms. Some of the information that you submit may be personally identifiable information (that is, information that can be uniquely identified with you, such as your full name, address, e-mail address, phone number, and so on).

Some areas of this site may require you to submit information in order for you to benefit from the specified features (such as newsletter subscriptions, tips/pointers, order processing, submitting a resume) or to participate in a particular activity (such as promotions). You will be informed at each information collection point what information is required and what information is optional.

PASSIVE INFORMATION COLLECTION

As you navigate through a Web site, certain information can be passively collected (that is, gathered without your actively providing the information) using various technologies and means, such as Internet Protocol addresses, cookies, Internet tags and navigational data collection. This site uses Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. An IP Address is a number assigned to your computer by your Internet service provider so you can access the Internet and is generally considered to be non-personally identifiable information, because in most cases an IP address is dynamic (changing each time you connect to the Internet), rather than static (unique to a particular user’s computer). We may use your IP address to diagnose problems with our server, report aggregate information, determine the fastest route for your computer to use in connecting to our site, and administer and improve the site.

All client information is to be maintained in the Trust’s shareholder files and/or stored on appropriate electronic media. The Trust’s Distributor may maintain certain shareholder files on the Trust’s behalf. Information from potential clients may be filed in temporary files, but shall be subject to the same restrictions and limitations as other client files outlined below.

Trust personnel will not share or disclose nonpublic information regarding any client or potential client of the Trust, except (i) as necessary to service shareholder accounts including, without limitation, the settlement, billing, processing, clearing, or transferring of shareholder transactions; (ii) as otherwise directed by a shareholder; or (iii) as required by law. Access to shareholder files and information, whether in paper or electronic format, is limited to personnel of the Trust and its service providers (e.g., the Trust’s administrator, transfer agent, custodian and distributor) for the purposes of servicing shareholder accounts.

The Trust will provide shareholders with a privacy notice (the “Privacy Notice”) before the shareholder invests in the Trust through its website. The Privacy Notice shall detail the types of nonpublic client information collected, any information shared with third parties or with affiliates, the policies and practices the Trust has in place to protect the confidentiality and security of nonpublic client information; and the procedures to permit shareholders or potential shareholders to opt out of information sharing arrangements with third parties (inapplicable to the Trust and its service providers so long as sharing information is for the purpose of servicing shareholder accounts).

The Trust shall distribute its updated Privacy Notice to its shareholders within its prospectus on an annual basis.

The Trust will direct each of its service providers to adhere to this Privacy Policy with respect to all consumer, customer and former customer information of the Trust and to take all actions reasonably necessary so that the Trust is in compliance with this Privacy Policy.

Except as otherwise stated, we may use your information to improve or modify the content of our site, to customize the site to users’ preferences, to communicate information to you (if you have requested or consented to the delivery of such information), for our marketing and research purposes, and for the purposes specified in this Privacy Policy or otherwise permitted by law.

We do not sell personably identifiable information.

If you provide personally identifiable information to this site, we may combine such information with other actively collected information unless we specify otherwise at the point of collection. We will take reasonable measures to prevent personally identifiable information from being combined with passively collected information.

We may disclose your personally identifiable information (i) to third parties, located in the United States and/or any other country, but only to agents or contractors we use to support our business (e.g., fulfillment services, technical support, delivery services, and financial institutions), in which case we will require such third parties to agree to treat such information in accordance with this Privacy Policy; (ii) in connection with the sale, assignment, or other transfer of the business of this site to which the information relates, in which case we will require any such buyer, assignee or transferee to agree to treat such information in accordance with this Privacy Policy; or (iii) where required by applicable laws, court orders, government regulations or order of a governmental authority with appropriate jurisdiction.

In addition, we may make full use of all information acquired through this site that is not in personally identifiable form.

SECURITY

We take reasonable steps to protect your personally identifiable information as you transmit your information from your computer to our site and to protect such information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. You should keep in mind that no Internet transmission is ever 100% secure or error-free. In particular, e-mail sent to or from this site may not be secure, and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to us via e-mail. Moreover, where you use passwords, ID numbers, or other special access features on this site, it is your responsibility to safeguard them.
