WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT ABOUT YOU?
1. Information that relates directly to you such as your name and email address
We collect information about you when you fill in a contact form on the site. When you submit a ‘contact us’ form, we ask you for your full name, business address, business telephone number, business email address and other personal information. Occasionally we may ask you for other details for the purpose explicitly stated on the form on the website.
If you complete a ‘contact us’ form via the website we may contact you by email, phone or post via your preferred contact method, where you have expressed a preference. You can change your communication preferences via the instructions that accompany each piece of communication (e.g. links to manage preferences in emails we send to you).
2. Information that does not directly identify you such as your browsing behaviour on FE
We use IP address information alone to identify business usage of our service. This is done through the usage of LeadForensics technologies. Any non-business associated IP addresses (e.g. individuals’ IP addresses or dynamic IP addresses) are being discarded immediately and no longer processed by LeadForensics technologies. For retained business associated IP addresses we will directly collect metrics (visit timestamps, count of pageviews, count of visits, visit durations), and dimensions (URL viewed, device type, browser). Also for the business associated IP addresses,, through a third party, we will indirectly collect additional dimensions (company name; company registered address(es), country, county, postal code; company website address and telephone number; industry and SIC (Standard Industry Classification Code); published AUM and /or turnover (if listed); number of employees; company registration number and year of founding).
FinancialExpress.net, and any other websites, products or services from FE are not intended to collect or process special types of data such as medical or biometric data, nor any data relating to children.
