Privacy Policy

What This Privacy Policy Covers
  • This policy covers how FinData treats personal information that FinData collects and receives, including information related to your past use of FinData products and services. Personal information is information about you that is personally identifiable like your name, address, email address, or phone number, and that is not otherwise publicly available.
  • This policy does not apply to the practices of companies that FinData does not own or control, or to people that FinData does not employ or manage.
Information Collection and Use
  • FinData collects personal information when you register with FinData, when you use FinData products or services, when you visit FinData pages or the pages of certain FinData partners. FinData may combine information about you that we have with information we obtain from business partners or other companies.
  • When you register we ask for information such as your name, email address, address, city, country, etc. Once you register with FinData and sign in to our services, you are not anonymous to us.
  • FinData collects information about your transactions with us and with some of our business partners, including information about your use of products and services that we offer.
  • FinData automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your browser, including your IP address, FinData cookie information, and the page you request.
  • FinData uses information for the following general purposes: to customize the advertising and content you see, fulfil your requests for products and services, improve our services, contact you, conduct research, and provide anonymous reporting for internal and external clients.
Information Sharing and Disclosure
  • FinData does not rent, sell, or share personal information about you with other people or non-affiliated companies except to provide products or services you've requested, when we have your permission, or under the following circumstances:
    • We provide the information to trusted partners who work on behalf of or with FinData under confidentiality agreements. These companies may use your personal information to help FinData communicate with you about offers from FinData and our marketing partners. However, these companies do not have any independent right to share this information.
    • We respond to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process, or to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims;
    • We believe it is necessary to share information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of FinData's terms of use, or as otherwise required by law.
    • We transfer information about you if FinData is acquired by or merged with another company. In this event, FinData will notify you before information about you is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.
  • FinData displays targeted advertisements based on personal information. Advertisers (including ad serving companies) may assume that people who interact with, view, or click on targeted ads meet the targeting criteria - for example, women ages 18-24 from a particular geographic area.
    • FinData does not provide any personal information to the advertiser when you interact with or view a targeted ad. However, by interacting with or viewing an ad you are consenting to the possibility that the advertiser will make the assumption that you meet the targeting criteria used to display the ad.
Cookies
  • FinData may set and access FinData cookies on your computer.
  • FinData lets other companies that show advertisements on some of our pages set and access their cookies on your computer. Other companies' use of their cookies is subject to their own privacy policies, not this one. Advertisers or other companies do not have access to FinData's cookies.
  • FinData uses web beacons to access FinData cookies inside and outside our network of web sites and in connection with FinData products and services.
Your Ability to Edit and Delete Your Account Information and Preferences
  • You can edit your FinData Account Information, including your preferences, at any time.
  • We reserve the right to send you certain communications relating to the FinData service, such as service announcements, administrative messages and the FinData Newsletter, that are considered part of your FinData account, without offering you the opportunity to opt-out of receiving them.
  • You can delete your FinData account by visiting our Account Deletion page.
Confidentiality and Security
  • We limit access to personal information about you to employees who we believe reasonably need to come into contact with that information to provide products or services to you or in order to do their jobs.
  • Your FinData Account Information is password-protected.
  • In certain areas FinData uses industry-standard SSL encryption to protect data transmissions.
