We reserve the right to generate Anonymised and Aggregated Data extracted out of any databases containing your personal data and to make such use as we sees fit of any such Anonymised and Aggregated Data.
Who is responsible for processing your personal data?
We are responsible for the processing of your personal data insofar as we collect it as part of the Service, through registration forms, surveys, questionnaires or by tracking Users’ use of the Service. Insofar as personal data of Users or other members of staff of subscribing organisations is posted to the Service by the organisation or its Users, that organisation may have the ultimate responsibility for the use of that personal data and we will handle it in accordance with the instructions of that organisation.
If you have any questions, a request or wish to make any complaint in relation to our use of your data, please contact us through the email address provided at the end of this Policy. The postal address and other contact details of FXC are available on the Service. Enquiries relating to our use of your personal data should be made for the attention of the legal department.

- Personal data that you or your organisation may give to us or to our Related Parties in connection with your organisation’s subscription for the Service, for the purpose of signing-up to the Service or accessing the Service. This may include your name, the name of your organisation, your organisation’s address, telephone, email or other contact details, your date of birth, your role in the organisation, information relating to the equipment you use to access the Service (such as MAC numbers and IP addresses), and to the location of that equipment.

When do we disclose your personal data to third parties?
We share your personal data with our Related Parties that provide services to us. This includes for example:
- subcontractors or service suppliers that we use to assist us in delivering the Service (including administration services, technical services relating to the maintenance, servicing and upgrading of the Service hosting services, data migration services and analytical services, marketing and customer service, payment processing services, and other outsourced services);
- service providers that help us to test, monitor, improve and develop the Service; and
- service providers and affiliates who help us compile, aggregate and analyse personal data in order to produce Anonymised and Aggregated Data that we use, sell and publish.
We ensures that such Related Parties do not use your personal data for any other purposes, that they do not disclose it to any other third parties and that they do not retain copies of your personal data except as necessary to provide services to us or to our customers or as may be required by law.
Our affiliates may have access to your personal data for the purpose of performing analytical studies and research. We will not disclose the results of such analysis or research to third parties or publish it except in the form of Anonymised and Aggregated Data.
We also reserve the right to disclose and transfer your personal data to other entities in connection with the sale or transfer of our business or those business activities relating to the Service or other products or services provided to your organisation (including, where necessary, in negotiations towards such sale or transfer). We will ensure that such acquirer will continue to process the personal data in accordance with this Policy (as it may be updated from time to time).
Other circumstances in which your personal data may be used or disclosed include the following:
- if we believe that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to enforce or apply the terms and conditions of a contract with a subscriber organisation or to protect our rights, property, the safety or integrity of our services, software or products, or otherwise as provided by law or required by any court of competent jurisdiction or any regulatory authority acting under statutory powers.
- where necessary to satisfy a legitimate request or order of a government body, public authority, regulator or enforcement agency, in response to a third-party subpoena (if on legal advice such response is required); or if necessary to defend us or our subscribers (for example, in a lawsuit).
We will fully co-operate with regulators, law enforcement agencies and other authorities to identify anyone who uses our products, service or software for illegal activities. We reserve the right to report to regulators and law enforcement agencies any activities that are believed to be unlawful.
How do we protect your personal data?
FXC uses appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect your personal data including:
- security measures including encryption, firewalls and physical security for our servers and information centres;
- limiting and controlling access to records of personal data to members of staff and Related Parties that require such access to perform their duties and services, through passwords, variable log-in rights and other technical and organisational access controls;
- ensuring confidentiality obligations are put in place when dealing with our Related Parties and other third parties;
- avoiding the collection or storage of personal data when it is unnecessary or for longer than reasonably needed or legally permitted or required and deleting it (or anonymising it) once we no longer need it or are no longer required to keep it as personal data; and
- seeking to keep your personal data up-to-date and correct.
However, we cannot guarantee that such protection will always successfully prevent attempts to gain unauthorised access, corruption or loss of personal data. Please bear in mind that transmissions over the Internet are not completely secure, and any information you send to or from this Service may be accessible by others. More specifically, email sent to or from the Service may not be secure. As a result, Users and organisations should take particular care in deciding what information to send or post to the Service.
Any passwords, ID numbers, or other special access numbers you might use to access any part of this Service are your responsibility; take care to safeguard them.
