Due to the unique nature of Internet transactions, we have additional policies and procedures in place to protect your personal and financial information on the Internet.
We collect your email address when you provide it to us through our website or when you sign up for our blog. We will never sell your email address.

When you send MikeHolmes.com an email, we may retain your message and our response for quality assurance purposes. It is important to remember that regular (non-encrypted) email is not secure.
We collect information from you when you fill out an online form. All online forms are subject to the same policy we have on email.
Information that you input on the web site while using any of our planning tools and calculators is not captured, stored or used in any way other than to provide you with the information you’re looking for at the time you use the tool or calculator. These calculators were built only for the purpose of helping you understand your financial options, enabling you to explore various scenarios and “what if” calculations for items like loan payments, retirement and education planning.
There are other devices for tracking online activity including web beacons. A web beacon is a small string of software code that represents a graphic image on a website or in email. Web beacons can be used for many purposes – including website traffic reporting, unique visitor counts, advertising/auditing/reporting, and personalization of a website.
