A cookie is a small data file that is stored by your web browser on your computer. To facilitate and customize your experience with the Website, we may store cookies on your computer. We may use cookies to record how often you visit our Website, and what pages you go to on our site. The cookie itself does not have Personal Information or SPDI in it, so anonymity of yours and any information relating to you is maintained throughout the time you access our Website. The cookies do not contain your name, address, telephone number, email address or the details of your internet service provider. We use cookies to save your time while using the Website, remind us of who you are, and track and target your interests in order to provide a customized experience. Cookies also allow us to collect non-personally identifiable information from you, like which pages you visited and what links you clicked on. Use of this information helps us to create a more user-friendly experience for all visitors.

External service providers

There may be a number of services offered by external service providers that help you use our Website. If you choose to use these optional services, and in the course of doing so, disclose information to the external service providers and/or grant them permission to collect information about you, then their use of your information is governed by their private policy.

Law and order

We cooperate with law enforcement authorities, as well as other third parties to enforce laws dealing with intellectual property rights, fraud and other rights. We can (and you authorize us to) disclose any information, including SPDI, about you to law enforcement and other government officials as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate, in connection with an investigation of fraud, intellectual property infringement, or other activity that is illegal or may expose us or you to legal liability or any political action.

Other information collectors

Except as otherwise expressly included in this Privacy Policy, this document only addresses the use and disclosure of information collected by Finsight from you. To the extent that you disclose your information to other parties, when you are on other sites throughout the internet, different rules may apply to their use or disclosure of the information you disclose to them and you consent to exercise necessary caution before disclosing your Personal Information to others.

Security and confidentiality

We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect. Finsight has put in place reasonable procedures, not lower than the standards of IS/ISO/IEC 27001 to safeguard and secure the information collected online. However, while we employ commercially reasonable security measures to protect data and seek to partner with companies which do the same, we cannot ensure that all of your private communications and other Personal Information or SPDI, where applicable, will never be disclosed in ways not otherwise described in this Privacy Policy. In addition to that, due to the existing regulatory environment, we may not provide protection against data and information being revealed to certain enforcement authorities. By way of example, we may be forced to disclose information to the government, law enforcement agencies or third parties. Under certain circumstances, third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, or members may abuse or misuse your information that they collect from our Websites. Therefore, although we use industry standard practices to protect your privacy, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your Personal Information or private communications would always remain private. You therefore agree that any security breaches beyond the control of our standard security procedures are at your sole risk and discretion.

If there is a change of control of our business or a sale or transfer of business assets, we reserve the right to transfer to the extent permissible at law our user databases, together with any Personal Information and non-personal information contained in those databases. We would seek to only disclose information in good faith and where we have sought to maintain confidentiality.

We stand behind the promises we make, however, and will never materially change our policies and practices to make them less protective of Personal Information and/or SPDI collected in the past without the consent of relevant users / individuals.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

Finsight may at any time revise this Privacy Policy by posting the revised version on this Website. All amended terms shall automatically become effective once they are posted on the Website. By using the Website, you agree to be bound by any such revisions and therefore you should periodically review this page to examine the then-current Privacy Policy.
