Personal Data We May Collect about You
We may obtain personal data about You (such as Your name, mailing address, email address, contact preferences, phone number, device identifiers, IP address, location information, and profile information where the contact is via social media) whenever You register/subscribe to Our website, use Our website, contact Us for any reason, and sign up to Our Services. We may also collect Your views on particular stock recommendations We make on Our website, which we refer to as The Analyst’s “Sentiment Tracker” (see below). This is a non-exhaustive list and is subject to change from time to time at Our sole discretion.
Lawful Bases for Our Processing
The Analyst will collect only personal data which is relevant to these purposes and We will do Our utmost to ensure that such personal data will be accurate, complete, and kept up to date. Whenever personal data is obtained from You, You will have access to that personal data and we will endeavour to provide You with details as to how it will be used (for example, at the time we collect the data in question).
International Data Transfers
We do not transfer or process data outside the UK or the European Economic Area (“EEA”) unless We have Your specific consent, where we have ensured that this is lawful under the GDPR because there are appropriate safeguards in place to protect Your data
(e.g. where ‘standard contractual clauses’ are in place between Us and the data importer based outside the UK / EEA) or where the nature of the processing requires it (for example, because You have chosen to use an email or other communications service
which routes data outside the UK / EEA). Please contact Us if You have any questions about how We may transfer Your data overseas.
Any personal data supplied to Us will be held on The Analyst's secure database and may be used to keep You informed about services that The Analyst offers.
If at any time You do not wish to receive such communications, You may let Us know by contacting the email address below.
Data Security and Data Sharing
We take the security of Your personal information very seriously and We will use all reasonable efforts to safeguard Your personal information. However, You should be aware that the use of the Internet is not entirely secure and for this reason We cannot guarantee the security or integrity of any personal information which is transferred from You or to You via the internet.
The Analyst does not sell, trade, or rent Your personal data to any other company or organisation without Your permission. However, where you prefer to view our research using a third party’s platform (e.g. Bloomberg, Sentieo, Refinitiv, S&P Capital IQ, FactSet, RSRCHX/Liquidnet, or Red Deer), we may share certain of Your details with those third party providers in order to facilitate Your access to our research using their platform. In addition, The Analyst may share Your personal data with a third party seeking to acquire the whole or any part of our business (in the context of a merger or acquisition). In all other cases, or where we are compelled to do so by law or regulation (e.g. where ordered by a court of law).
Information Tracking (for The Analyst Sentiment Tracker)
We may obtain Your views on particular stock recommendations We make on Our website – we call this our ‘Sentiment Tracker’ feature. This will typically be in the form of Your answer (yes or no) to the question: “Do you agree with our stock recommendation?” We may use your answers to build a profile of the types of clients who agree or disagree with a particular stock recommendation, and thereby to improve Our Service to You and all Our users. If we publish the results of any Sentiment Tracker survey, we will only publish anonymised and aggregated data.
Cookies and Call Recording
We may use the logs from Our servers to assist Us in Our security and help Us plan Our strategy.
In addition, please note that all telephone calls to and from The Analyst are recorded, and such recordings may be used for regulatory, compliance, training, and quality purposes.
Data about You will be held for no longer than is necessary for the purposes set out above.
The GDPR provides You with rights in respect of Our processing of Your personal data. You may:
- Request a copy of Your personal data and information about Our processing of it;
- Request that We correct any personal data that We hold on You if it is incorrect or out-of-date;
- Request that We delete information on You in certain circumstances;
- Request that We stop processing Your data or restrict Our processing activities in certain circumstances;
- Object, on grounds relating to Your particular situation, to any of Our particular processing activities where You feel this has a disproportionate impact on You;
- Request to receive from Us the personal data we hold about You which You have provided to Us, in a reasonable format specified by You, including for the purpose of Your transmitting that personal data to another data controller; and
- Where Our processing is based on Your consent, You may withdraw that consent, without affecting the lawfulness of Our processing based on consent before its withdrawal.
If You want to exercise any of these rights, please contact Us. Please note that none of these rights are absolute, and we may be entitled or required to refuse or apply exemptions whenever we respond to a request to exercise any such GDPR rights.
You also have the right to lodge a complaint about Our processing with a supervisory authority. In the UK, this is the Information Commissioner’s Office (https://ico.org.uk/).
