When you register to use the Site or choose to submit information to the Site, ICAP may collect information from you such as your name, postal address, email address, telephone number, your firm’s name or comments. Generally, the information ICAP collects on the Site is used only for ICAP’s own internal purposes, for example, to improve the content of the Site, to improve ICAP’s marketing and promotional efforts, to statistically analyse Site usage patterns on an aggregate basis, to improve ICAP content and Site offerings, and may be used by ICAP to contact you to provide you with information ICAP believes may be useful to you. ICAP believes that these uses allow it to improve the Site and better tailor it to meet users' needs.
Disclosure of Information
At no time will ICAP sell or broker any of the information that ICAP receives from you through your use of the Site to any third parties. As a general rule, ICAP will not disclose any personal information to any third parties, except in the following circumstances: (i) when ICAP believes in good faith that it is required under applicable law, (ii) to protect other users of the Site, or (iii) to respond to an emergency and as set forth below. The recipients of such information may include companies or individuals that are established in countries outside of the European Economic Area and which may not have comprehensive data protection laws.
Information may be given to third-party contractors or other persons or entities that ICAP engages in the course of outsourcing certain functions. Information will be shared with such third-party contractors, persons or entities only to the extent reasonably necessary for them to perform services on ICAP’s behalf and not for any other purpose, and pursuant to reasonable confidentiality obligations. ICAP may disclose information if legally required to do so, if requested to do so by a governmental entity or regulatory authority or if ICAP believes in good faith that such action is necessary to comply with legal requirements or process, prevent a crime or protect national security. If you engage, or ICAP reasonably suspects that you are engaging, in any illegal activity, ICAP may disclose your personal information without a subpoena, warrant or other court order to the extent ICAP determines in its sole discretion is necessary to cooperate with appropriate authorities. ICAP reserves the right to transfer any information that ICAP has collected about you through your use of the Site to a third party that acquires a portion of ICAP’s business or in the event that ICAP sells or otherwise transfers some or all of its assets related to the Site.
