Use of Cookies
Cookies are a common device used by web designers to enhance a web site's functionality and make it more user friendly. A cookie is a small text file that a web site can place on your computer's hard drive to collect information about your activities while on the site. The information stored in a cookie can only be read by the site that placed the cookie. Cookies improve the user friendliness of web sites for several reasons. They store information so that you do not have to enter the same information every time you go to a new page or revisit a web site. The "shopping carts" used by many web sites are a cookie that keeps track of the purchases a web shopper wants to make. Cookies may work through a single visit to a web site, such as when tracking a shopping trip, or may be set to work through multiple visits when a user returns to a web site.

Sharing and Disclosure of Information Smedley Financial Collects
Except as otherwise described in this privacy statement, Smedley Financial and Third Party Suppliers will not disclose personal information to any third party unless we believe that disclosure is necessary: (1) to conform to legal requirements or to respond to a subpoena, search warrant or other legal process received by Smedley Financial or a Third Party Provider, whether or not a response is required by applicable law; (2) to enforce the Agreement or to protect our rights; or (3) to protect the safety of users of the service or others believed to be in danger.

We may provide anonymous, summary statistics about the interests and preferences of visitors of our web site, traffic patterns and related site information. These statistics do not include personally identifiable information.

Changes in Our Privacy Policy
From time to time we may make changes to our privacy policy. If we make changes, we will post them on our site to make users aware of what the changes are so users will always be aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and when we may disclose it. A user is bound by any minor changes to the policy when she or he uses the site after those changes have been posted. If, however, we are going to use users' personally identifiable information in a manner materially different from that stated at the time of collection we will notify by posting a notice on our Web site for 30 days.
