Tracking Technologies Generally. Regular cookies may generally be disabled or removed by tools available as part of most commercial browsers and, in some instances, blocked in the future by selecting certain settings. Browsers offer different functionalities and options, so you may need to set them separately. Also, tools from commercial browsers may not be effective with regard to HTML5 cookies or other Tracking Technologies. Please be aware that if you disable or remove these technologies, some parts of the Service may not work and that when you revisit the Service, your ability to limit browser-based Tracking Technologies is subject to your browser settings and limitations.
Some App-related Tracking Technologies in connection with non-browser usage (e.g., most functionality of a mobile app) can only be disabled by uninstalling the app. To uninstall an app, follow the instructions from your operating system or handset manufacturer. Your browser settings may allow you to automatically transmit a "Do Not Track" signal to online services you visit. Note, however, there is no consensus among industry participants as to what "Do Not Track" means in this context. Like many online services, we currently do not alter our practices when a "Do Not Track" signal is received from a visitor's browser.

You can opt-out of receiving certain promotional communications (emails or text messaging) from Portfolio123 at any time (i) for promotional emails, by following the instructions provided in emails to click on the unsubscribe link or by changing your communication preferences by logging onto your account; and (ii) for text messages, by following the instructions provided in text messages from Portfolio123 to text the word "STOP". Please note that your opt-out is limited to the email address or phone number used and will not affect subsequent subscriptions. If you opt-out of only certain communications, other subscription communications may continue. Even if you opt-out of receiving promotional communications, Portfolio123 may, subject to applicable law, continue to send you non-promotional communications, such as those about your account, transactions, servicing, or Portfolio123's ongoing business relations.

One of Portfolio123's goals is to create a community of trading system developers that actively discusses new ideas and methods. Nonetheless we recognize that many trading system developers want to maintain their edge by keeping their strategies private. You can make any system, strategy, or simulation private in the respective "About" page and the system will no longer be accessible to other users. You can also set a global setting for the default visibility on the account preferences page.
