Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on or within the Site.

Q-Sync

Q-Sync is a service Quovo offers that gives users insights into their current investment portfolios located elsewhere, such as at an online brokerage. Using Q-Sync is entirely optional, but to use Q-Sync, a user must provide our systems with private information to allow our systems to retrieve the information located on the third party's systems.

Q-Sync will retrieve information about your investment holdings (such as position names, values, trades, transfers, and other information) and store it on our systems. This information will be used in ways described previously.

We extend the same level of information security to this information (such as encryption, limitation of access by Quovo personnel, and other measures) as to other personal information on our systems.

At any time, you may delete this account data from our system by using the appropriate links in the Synced Accounts management area on our website. This will delete all portfolio information from our servers; however, statistics related to aggregating this data with other users' portfolios (such as the average performance of all Quovo user portfolios) may remain on our servers.

Your Choices as a User

You may delete your Quovo account by emailing info@quovo.com (please provide information to identify that you are the owner of the account in question). We will endeavor to act on these deletion requests as soon as reasonably practicable. Deletions take effect when we act on them. Residual information related to your account may remain for some time on our servers. Some areas of Quovo's website and some of Quovo's services will not be available to you unless you choose to share certain personal information (such as our Q-Sync application, which requires access to your outside brokerage account).

Using the "Settings" area of our website, you may delete or change the personal information that you have previously provided the Quovo community. Where our "Settings" tools do not allow you to delete or alter information, you may request such changes by emailing info@quovo.com (please provide information to identify that you are the owner of the account in question). As described above, we will endeavor to act on these requests as soon as reasonably practicable, and residual information may remain on our servers. However, we may retain such information, as well as any data related to your trades, in accordance with applicable laws.

Reporting Claims of Copyright Infringement

Quovo takes claims of copyright infringement seriously. We will respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement that comply with applicable law. If you believe any materials accessible on or from this web site or the services available through this web site (the “Site”) infringe your copyright, you may request removal of those materials (or access to them) from the Site by submitting written notification to our Copyright Agent (designated below). In accordance with the Online Copyright Infringement Liability Limitation Act of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (17 U.S.C. § 512) (“DMCA”), the written notice (the “DMCA Notice”) must include substantially the following:

  • Your physical or electronic signature.
  • Identification of the copyrighted work you believe to have been infringed or, if the claim involves multiple works on the Site, a representative list of such works.
  • Identification of the material you believe to be infringing in a sufficiently precise manner to allow us to locate that material.
  • Adequate information by which we can contact you (including your name, postal address, telephone number and, if available, e-mail address).
  • A statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the copyrighted material is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent or the law.
  • A statement that the information in the written notice is accurate.
  • A statement, under penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner.

Our designated Copyright Agent to receive DMCA Notices is:

Lowell Putnam

(646)216-9437
copyright@quovo.com

If you fail to comply with all of the requirements of Section 512(c)(3) of the DMCA, your DMCA Notice may not be effective.

Please be aware that if you knowingly materially misrepresent that material or activity on the Site is infringing your copyright, you may be held liable for damages (including costs and attorneys’ fees) under Section 512(f) of the DMCA.

Counter-Notification Procedures

If you believe that material you posted on the Site was removed or access to it was disabled by mistake or misidentification, you may file a counter-notification with us (a “Counter-Notice”) by submitting written notification to our copyright agent (identified below). Pursuant to the DMCA, the Counter-Notice must include substantially the following:

  • Your physical or electronic signature.
  • An identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access disabled.
  • Adequate information by which we can contact you (including your name, postal address, telephone number and, if available, e-mail address).
  • A statement under penalty of perjury by you that you have a good faith belief that the material identified above was removed or disabled as a result of a mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled.
  • A statement that you will consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the judicial district in which your address is located (or if you reside outside the United States for any judicial district in which the Site may be found) and that you will accept service from the person (or an agent of that person) who provided the Site with the complaint at issue.

Completed Counter-Notices should be sent to:

Lowell Putnam
251 W 30th St. Floor 16, New York, NY. 10001
(646)216-9437
copyright@quovo.com

The DMCA allows us to restore the removed content if the party filing the original DMCA Notice does not file a court action against you within ten business days of receiving the copy of your Counter-Notice.

Please be aware that if you knowingly materially misrepresent that material or activity on the Site was removed or disabled by mistake or misidentification, you may be held liable for damages (including costs and attorneys’ fees) under Section 512(f) of the DMCA.]
