Asset Wisdom Ltd. – Privacy Policy

We are committed to an ethical and professional internet policy that respects and protects your personal privacy. Our Privacy Policy and practices are detailed below: please read them thoroughly.

Clear Definitions
Personally identifiable information is information such as your name, birth date, email address or mailing address, which can be used to uniquely identify you.

Anonymous information is not personally identifiable information: it is information about how you use our site. Anonymous information also includes the domain names and/or IP addresses (as explained below) of internet browsers that visit our site, the time of day that the site was visited, and other non-personal information. This information is not tied to any person but helps us know what our users do.

Security
We operate secure data networks protected by industry-standard firewalls and password protection. We have security measures in place to attempt to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of your user data under our control.

Only certain employees have access to the information you provide us. While we cannot guarantee that loss, misuse or alteration to data will not occur, we try to prevent such unfortunate occurrences.

Sharing Personally Identifiable Information with Other Companies
We will not share your personally identifiable information unless you have authorised us to share it. When we share your personal information with other companies they can use this information but cannot combine it with other information they have about you, nor can they share this information with other companies or people without your express permission.

Disclosure of your Identity
From time to time we receive requests to disclose the identities of our users.

We do not disclose the identities of our users unless we are legally required to do so. If a governmental agency or a law enforcement agency requests information in relation to the identities of our users, we will comply with the request.

When you visit our site please read the following carefully:

Collecting and Using Personally Identifiable Information
You can visit our site and use many of our services without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself to us. It is only when you enter details to contact organisations that will you be asked to provide us with personally identifiable information.

When you fill in these forms, you need to complete certain fields (some are required, and some are optional). We use this information to share your information with select third parties who work with us, only if you give us permission (as we explain below).

Anonymous Information
We collect anonymous information when people use our site, even if they have not entered their personal details.
We will not share any anonymous information about your use of our site with third parties if we know that this information will be linked with your personally identifiable information obtained from another source, unless you have given us permission to do this.

Cookies
A cookie is a small piece of data that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer’s hard drive. Cookies do not damage your computer. Cookies make web surfing easier for you by saving your preferences while you are on our site.
You can decide if you want to accept cookies by changing the settings on your computer. You can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or allow your browser to show you when a cookie is being sent.

Use of IP Addresses
An Internet Protocol (IP) address is a set of numbers that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you log on to your internet service provider, or through your company’s local area network (LAN) or wide area network (WAN). Web servers, the powerful computers that provide web pages for viewing, automatically identify your computer by the IP address assigned to it during your session online.

We may collect IP addresses for some purposes. We do not link a user’s IP address to a person’s personal information, which means we will have a record of each user’s session but the user remains anonymous to us.

Cookies
In May 2011, the UK Government passed new legislation is regards to the use of Cookies. The following section explains what cookies are, which ones we collect and how they are used on the website.

How We Collect Information
Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by the websites that you visit. They are commonly used to make websites work by tracking goods that you have placed in a basket, or work more efficiently by remembering your login details, as well as to provide information about the sites usage to the owners of the site.

Types of Cookies
There are three types of cookies dropped and collected by websites. With some exceptions (i.e. websites that fundamentally require cookies for website functionality) from 26th May 2012 all cookies must be consented to by a site’s users.

These three types of cookies are: moderately intrusive (embedded third-party content, social media plugins, and advertising campaign optimisation), minimally intrusive (web analytics/metrics, and personalised content/interface), and those necessary for website functionality (stop multiple form submissions, load balancing, transaction specific: exempt from changes to privacy regulations).
