Information Collection, Use, and Sharing
We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.
We will use your information to respond to you regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request (e.g., to ship an order).
We may use the information to customize, analyze, and improve our services and communications with you.
We may disclose your personal information in connection with law enforcement, fraud prevention, or other legal action as required by law or regulation; or if we reasonably believe it is necessary to protect our company, its customers, or the public.
Your Access to and Control Over Information
You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. You can do the following at any time by contacting us via email at Info@MentorCapital.com or at (800) 574-6320, extension 1:
- See what data we have about you if any.
- Change/correct any data we have about you.
- Have us delete any data we have about you.
- Express any concern you have about our use of your data.
We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
We use “cookies” on this site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor’s hard drive to help us improve your access to our site and identify repeat visitors to our site. For instance, when we use a cookie to identify you, you would not have to log in with a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site. The usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on our site.
Our services are not directed to or intended for use by minors. Consistent with the requirements of the US Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, if we learn that we have received information directly from a child under age 13 without his or her parent’s or legal guardian’s verified consent, we will use that information only to respond directly to that child (or his or her parent or legal guardian) to inform the child that he or she cannot use our services. Subsequently, we will make commercially reasonable efforts to delete such information.

- Request to Delete: You have the right to request that we delete the personal information that we may have collected from you.

If we are unable to fulfill your request for deletion, we will let you know the reason why.

Only you or your authorized agent may submit a consumer request. You may submit a consumer request on behalf of your minor child. In order to respond to your consumer request, we will take steps to verify your identity before processing your request. To the extent possible, we will use our existing authentication practices to verify your identity. Where necessary, we may request additional information about you so that we may verify your identity. Where we did not already hold that information, we will use it only for the purpose of verifying your identity and processing your request. If we cannot verify your identity based on the information provided, we will let you know that we are unable to fulfill your request.
Please note that if we maintain your personal information on behalf of a third party, we may need to refer you to that third party in order to respond to your request. If we cannot comply with your request, or with part of your request, we will explain the reasons in our response.
You may use an authorized agent to submit a request to know or a request to delete. When we verify your agent’s request, we may verify both you and your agent’s identity and request a signed document from you that authorizes your agent to make the request on your behalf. To protect your personal information, we reserve the right to deny a request from an agent that does not submit proof that they have been authorized by you to act on your behalf.
