MeetPips.com collects personal information to provide you, the user, with the best and most personalized experience possible, and to provide our advertisers with an efficient way to reach the right audience. In short, by knowing a little about you, MeetPips.com can deliver more relevant content and advertisements to you.

We conduct research on our users' demographics, interests, and behavior based upon the information you provide us when you register or based upon the information on our server log files. This research is compiled and analyzed on an aggregated basis. We may also notify you of future products, services, or areas of our Website that we think may interest you based on the information we've received.

How Do We Use "Cookies", "Web Beacons", “IP Addresses” and Aggregate Information?

As you navigate on our Website, we use cookies to differentiate your visit on MeetPips.com from other users’ visits. In some cases, we also use cookies to prevent you from seeing unnecessary advertisements or from having to log in more times than is necessary during the same session.  Cookies, in conjunction with our Web server's log files, allow us to calculate the aggregate number of people visiting our Website and to assess which parts of the Website are most popular.  This helps us gather feedback in order to constantly improve our Website and better serve our users.  Cookies may also allow your email address or username to be pre-populated, so that you will only need to type your password the next time you sign in. If you are using a public computer or do not otherwise want this information to be stored, you can select the appropriate radio button on the sign-in page, and this cookie will not be used. Cookies do not allow us to gather any personal information about you and we do not store any personal information that you provided to us in your cookies. You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. You can program your computer to warn you each time a cookie is being sent, block third party cookies or block all cookies. However, by blocking all cookies you may not have access to certain features on MeetPips.com.

In addition to cookies, we may also use tiny electronic images or "Web beacons", which allow us to count users who have visited specific pages or access certain cookies. We may use Web beacons in the following ways:

  1. To count and recognize users,
  2. To conduct research on behalf of some partners on their websites, and for auditing purposes,
  3. To determine aggregate information about users, including demographic and usage information,
  4. To determine which email messages were opened and/or acted upon when we send HTML-formatted email messages (messages resembling Web pages that include graphics).

Internet Protocol address ("IP address") are automatically provided by your browser to other computers with which you communicate over the Internet, so that they know where to send you information. We receive an IP address each time you view one of our Web pages, because the browser automatically reports it to us. We also may store the IP address when you register with MeetPips.com or post a message. We may use IP addresses for various purposes, including:

  1. Diagnosing service or technology problems.
  2. Assessing and maintaining system security.
  3. Displaying the most appropriate advertising or content.
  4. Studying how people use our Website and how we can improve it.

Aggregate information refers to information your computer automatically provides to us and that is not tied back to you as a specific individual. Examples include referral data (the websites you visited just before and just after our Website), the pages viewed, time spent at our Website, and IP addresses. When you request a page from our Website, our servers log your IP address to create aggregate reports on user demographics and traffic patterns for advertisers and partners. We use this aggregated information to determine consumer trends and needs, which allows MeetPips.com to advertise more effectively, and allows you to receive advertisements that are less duplicative and more relevant to your interests.

What about Information Collected by Third-Party Websites, Ad Servers, and Sponsors

MeetPips.com will not disclose any personally identifiable information about individual users, except as described in this Privacy Policy. We do not give, rent, lend, or sell individual information to our advertisers, although we do provide aggregate information.

MeetPips.com may use a third-party advertising company to serve ads to you when you visit our Website. This company may use information (not including your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your visit to our Website in order to provide advertisements about products and services that may be of interest to you. In the course of serving advertisements to this Website, our third-party advertiser may place or recognize a unique cookie on your browser.

Many of our advertisers or sponsors link from our Website to areas on their own websites where they sell their own products and services.  If you follow links from our Website to others, you should be aware that you are doing business with those other websites, which have their own privacy and data collection practices. MeetPips.com has no responsibility or liability for these independent policies (and we may not even know what they are). For more information regarding a website and its privacy policies, check that website.

What Information Does MeetPips.com Gather From your MetaTrader4 Software?

MeetPips.com, through the use of MT4Sync, securely collects your name, broker company name, broker account number, and trade history data (including but not limited to open/close price, profit, pips, lot, commissions, stop loss, take profit and currency name).

Is the Transferred Data Kept Safe?

MeetPips.com encrypts your name, broker name, and broker account number during the transfer to our servers using the SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) protocol. Your name, broker name, and brokerage account number are never visible to MeetPips.com staff or to the public.

How Does MeetPips.com Use Your MetaTrader4 Data?

MT4Sync accesses and uses your trade history data to calculate and analyze your trading performance. The information is then republished on MeetPips.com. You consent to such access and usage.

MetaTrader4 Data is kept on MeetPips.com servers until you delete your MeetPips account. Deleting your MetaTrader4 software or closing your broker account does not delete your MetaTrader4 Data from the MeetPips.com servers.

How Do We Respect Children's Privacy?

Our Website is not directed at children under the age of 13. We operate our Website in compliance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act and will not knowingly collect or use personally identifiable information from anyone under 13.

How Will You Know Whether MeetPips.com's Privacy Policy Has Changed?

We may change this Privacy Statement at any time, but we will give notice of any material changes on our Website and/or in email messages. We encourage you to periodically check back and review this policy so that you always will know what information we collect, how we use it, and to whom we disclose it.
