Privacy Policy, Terms & Conditions and Disclaimer

Privacy Policy

We are committed to protecting your privacy and maintaining the security of any personal information that we receive from you. If our privacy policy changes, we will place an updated version on our website.

The purpose of this policy

The purpose of this policy is to explain to you what personal information we collect and how we and our associated companies may use it. Companies are associated with us if they are our subsidiaries or we are both subsidiaries of the same corporate entity.

We are the controller of any personal information which you provide to us which means that we decide the purposes and means of the processing of that personal information.  

How we obtain and store your information

We obtain your information through applications, emails, letters, telephone calls, text messages, cookies and conversations when registering for our services and during the course of our relationship (including information gained when you use our learning tools, demo accounts and trading simulators).

We may monitor or record phone calls with you and monitor (and maintain a record of) all emails and electronic communications sent by or to us.

We follow strict security procedures in the storage and disclosure of information that you have given us to prevent unauthorised access.

What types of personal information we process

We may process the following types of personal information:

  • name;
  • contact details including email details and phone numbers;
  • age or date of birth;
  • gender;
  • occupation;
  • income;
  • trading knowledge and experience;
  • user names and passwords;
  • information relating to your account including your account history, activity and orders
  • IP address;
  • National insurance number or other MiFIR national identifier;
  • FCA approved reference number;
  • Transaction reporting reference;
  • Power of attorney / agent details;
  • Phone device type;
  • Operating system;
  • Device ID;
  • Cookie ID;
  • Google 360 ID;
  • GUID; and
  • information about your use of our services, products and facilities (including information gained when you use our learning tools, demo accounts and trading simulators).

How we check your identity

To comply with money laundering regulations we need to confirm the name and address of our customers and certain third parties. We may ask you to provide physical forms of identity verification when you open your account.  Alternatively, we may use a credit reference agency to verify your identity. Our search is not seen or used by lenders to assess your ability to obtain credit.

Using your personal information

As well as checking your identity, the personal information we hold may be used for:

  • considering any of your applications;
  • carrying out risk assessments;
  • complying with our legal and regulatory obligations;
  • performing our obligations under any contract we have with you;
  • administering our relationship with you including resolving queries or issues;
  • establishing and managing your account;
  • reviewing your ongoing needs;
  • providing you with the information, products and services that you request from us;
  • checking your instructions to us;
  • investigating any complaint you may make;
  • providing evidence in any dispute or anticipated dispute between you and us;
  • recovering amounts payable;
  • training our staff;
  • enhancing our customer service and products;
  • undertaking product development and analysis; and
  • detecting or preventing fraud or other crimes.

Where you have consented to direct marketing, we may send you marketing material from time to time by post, email, telephone, text message or other electronic messaging services.

We also use technology to make decisions automatically or to build profiles about you. This technology uses logic that assesses whether our products are suitable for a potential customer, which helps us to determine whether or not it is appropriate for a potential customer to open an account with us. This means that you may not be able to open an account with us if our technology determines that it would not be appropriate for you to do so based on your financial knowledge and trading experience. If you ever think our machines have got it wrong, you can ask for a human to look into it. (See “Your Rights – Rights in relation to automated decision making and profiling”.)

When we may share your information

We may share your personal information with:

  • the FCA and any other regulatory or tax authority;
  • such third parties as we reasonably consider necessary in order to prevent crime, e.g. the police;
  • our associated companies;
  • third-party service providers and advisers who provide us with administrative, financial, research or other services in connection with the services we provide to you;
  • our introducing brokers and other commercial partners;
  • our professional advisers;
  • our auditors for the purposes of carrying out financial and regulatory audits;
  • our agents, including credit reference agencies, acting on our behalf, carrying out such credit and identity checks, including money laundering checks, compliance regulatory reporting and fraud prevention checks, as we may reasonably consider necessary or desirable, including requesting a reference from your bank or any credit reference agency. Any third party referred to in this clause may share any personal information concerning you with us and other organizations  involved in credit reference, the prevention of fraud and/or  crime  and/or  money laundering or for similar purposes  or to recover debts involved;
  • courts, tribunals, regulatory or tax authorities and government agencies to enable us to enforce our agreement with you or to comply with the requirements of a court, regulator, tax authority or government agency;
  • the purchaser or potential purchaser of one or more of our businesses or product/service lines and their professional advisers; and
  • our trade repository.

Please also note that disclosure to the trade repository or regulators may also result in certain anonymous transaction and pricing data becoming available to the public.

Generally, we require that organizations outside our associated companies with whom we share your personal information acknowledge the confidentiality of your data, undertake to respect your right to privacy and comply with the data protection principles and this policy.

Information, which we obtain indirectly

In some cases, we are also provided with your name and contact details by our agents.

We also gather information relating to you and your online behavior:

  • to help optimize our website, to give you a good user experience and to personalize your use and our communications to you;

  • to help us understand more about you and the products and services you use and are interested in; and
  • to tailor the online advertising you receive.

Knowing more about you helps us to understand our customers better, and means we can give you recommendations about products and services you may be interested in, and provide you with relevant advertising and customized communications that are of interest to you.

We combine information that you provide to us with information that is publicly available and/or that we receive from third parties such as advertisers and/or other reputable sources who have obtained your permission to do so, or have otherwise explained to you that this may happen.

Using companies to process your information outside the EEA

All countries in the European Economic Area (“EEA”) have similar standards of legal protection for your personal information.  The personal information that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored in, the United States of America, Australia, Japan, Singapore, China and the UAE.  It may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA in the United States of America, Australia, Japan, Singapore, China and the UAE who work for us. Such staff maybe engaged in, among other things, the fulfilment of your order, the processing of your payment details and the provision of support services. Where we transfer personal information or share it with others outside the EEA, we will ensure that we and those persons or companies who receive your personal information agree to protect it from improper use or disclosure, in accordance with data protection law by use of model clauses approved by the European Commission

How long will we keep it?

We shall hold information about you on electronic and/or paper files whilst you are a customer and for at least six years after you cease to be a customer. 

Governing law

This privacy policy is governed by English law.

YOUR PRIVACY RIGHTS

This section explains your rights in relation to your personal information in more detail. The various rights are not absolute and are subject to certain exceptions or qualifications.

Further personal information and advice about your rights can be obtained from the Information Commissioner at Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire SK9 5AF.  Tel: 0303 123 1113 or on its website at  www.ico.org.uk.

You are entitled to receive personal information free of charge except in the following circumstances where we may charge a reasonable fee to cover our administrative costs of providing the personal information for:

  • manifestly unfounded or excessive/repeated requests, or 
  • further copies of the same information.

Alternatively, we may be entitled to refuse to act on the request.

Please consider your request responsibly before submitting it. We’ll respond as soon as we can. Generally, this will be within one month from when we receive your request but, if the request is going to take longer to deal with, we’ll let you know.

In order to exercise any of the rights described below please contact us.

Accessing your information

When can you request access?

You have the right to:

  • confirmation that your personal information is being processed
  • access to your information, and
  • other certain information (most of which should be in our privacy policy anyway).

You can request copies of paper and electric records about you that we hold, share or use. To deal with your request, we can request proof of identity and enough personal information to enable us to locate the personal information you request.

When will access not be provided?

We can only provide you with your information, not personal information about another person.  Also, where access would adversely affect another person’s rights, we’re not required to provide this.  Due to legal privilege, we may not be able to show you anything that we learned in connection with a claim or legal proceeding.

Please clearly set out in your access request the personal information that you’re requesting.  If this is not clear, we may come back to you to ask for further personal information by way of clarification.

Correcting your information

You have the right to obtain from us without undue delay the rectification of inaccurate personal information concerning you.   If you tell us that the personal information we hold on you is incorrect, we will review it and if we agree with you, we will correct our records. If we do not agree with you we will let you know. If you wish, you can tell us in writing that you believe our records still to be incorrect and we will include your statement when we give your personal information to anyone outside the Hudson Metrics group of companies. You can contact us using the details in the section above in the main body of the privacy notice headed ‘Obtaining further personal information from us’.

You may also have the right to have incomplete personal information completed, including by means of providing a supplementary statement.  Whether or not this is appropriate in any particular case depending on the purposes for which your personal information is being processed.

We need to notify any third parties with whom we’ve shared your personal information that you’ve made a rectification request. We’ll take reasonable steps to do this, but if it is not possible or may involve disproportionate effort we may not be able to do this or ensure they rectify the personal information they hold.

How you can see and correct your information

Generally, we will let you see the personal information that we hold about you, or take steps to correct any inaccurate information, if you ask us in writing. 

Due to legal privilege, we may not be able to show you anything that we learned in connection with a claim or legal proceeding.

Erasing your information

When can you request erasure?

You have a right to have your personal information erased, and to prevent processing, where:

  • the personal information is no longer necessary for the purpose it was originally collected/processed;
  • you withdraw consent (where previously provided);
  • you object to the processing and our legitimate interests in being able to keep processing your personal information don’t take priority;
  • we’ve been processing your personal information in breach of data protection laws; or
  • the personal information has to be erased in order to comply with a legal obligation.
  •  

When can we refuse erasure requests?

The right to erasure does not apply where we are required to retain it for legal or regulatory purposes or where your information is processed for certain specified reasons, including for the exercise or defense of legal claims.

More importantly, if we have to erase your data we may not be able to provide you with our services.

Do we have to tell other recipients of your personal information about your erasure request?

Where we have provided the personal information you want to be erased to third parties, we need to inform them about your erasure request, so they can erase the personal information in question.  We’ll take reasonable steps to do this, but this may not always be possible or may involve disproportionate effort.

It may also be that the recipient is not required/able to erase your personal information because one of the exemptions above applies.

Restricting processing of your information

When is restriction available?

You have the right to restrict the processing of your personal information:

  • where you disagree with the accuracy of the information, we need to restrict the processing until we’ve verified the accuracy of the information;
  • when processing is unlawful and you oppose erasure and request restriction instead;
  • if we no longer need the personal information but you need this to establish, exercise or defend a legal claim; or
  • where you’ve objected to the processing in the circumstances detailed in paragraph (a) of “Objecting to processing”, and we’re considering whether those interests should take priority.

Do we have to tell other recipients of your personal information about the restriction?

Where we’ve disclosed your relevant personal information to third parties, we need to inform them about the restriction on the processing of your information, so that they don’t continue to process this. 

We’ll take reasonable steps to do this, but this may not always be possible or may involve disproportionate effort.

We’ll also let you know if we decide to lift a restriction on processing.

Taking your personal information with you

When does the right to data portability apply?

The right to data portability only applies:

  • to personal information you’ve provided to us (i.e. not any other information);
  • where the processing is based on your consent or for the performance of a contract;  and
  • when processing is carried out by automated means.

When can we refuse requests for data portability?

We can refuse your data portability request if the processing does not satisfy the above criteria.  Also, if the personal information concerns more than one individual, we may not be able to transfer this to you if doing so would prejudice that person’s rights.

Objecting to processing

You can object to processing in the following circumstances:

(a)      Legitimate interests

You’ve the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to processing of personal information concerning you which is based on legitimate interests.

If we can show compelling legitimate grounds for processing your personal information which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or we need your personal information to establish, exercise or defend legal claims, we can continue to process it.  Otherwise, we must stop using the relevant information.

(b)      Direct marketing

You can object at any time to your personal information being used for direct marketing purposes (including profiling related to such direct marketing).

If you sign up to receive newsletters or other e-mail messages from us, you can opt-out at any time free of charge by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the message.  You may also choose to opt-out from receiving marketing materials from us by contacting us.

Automated decision making and profiling

You’ve the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which has legal consequences for you or similarly significant effects.

As explained in the main part of our Privacy Policy, we use technology that does this. We only do so where:

  • this is necessary for entering into, or performance of, a contract between us;
  • this is authorised by applicable law; or
  • we’ve obtained your explicit consent to do so for these purposes.

While we’re confident that the technology works, we understand that not everyone is comfortable with decisions being left entirely up to machines. That is why you can request human intervention – let us know your concerns and contest the decision if you think our technology has got it wrong.

Risk Warning: Our service includes products that are traded on margin and carry a risk of losses in excess of your deposited funds. The products may not be suitable for all investors. Please ensure that you fully understand the risks involved.

HUDSON METRICS and its third party content providers, third party licensors and any affiliates thereof do not make any express or implied warranties regarding the accuracy or timeliness of any and all information provided via the software. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties or limitations on applicable statutory rights of a consumer, so the above exclusion and limitations may not apply to you.
  10. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY:
    To the extent permissible by law, in no event shall HUDSON METRICS, any third party content provider, any third party licensor or any affiliates thereof be liable for personal injury, or any incidental, special, indirect or consequential damages whatsoever, including, without limitation, damages for loss of profits, loss of data, business interruption or any other commercial damages or losses (“losses”), arising out of or related to your use or inability to use the software, however caused, regardless of the theory of liability (contract, tort or otherwise) and even if HUDSON METRICS, any third party content provider, any third party licensor or any affiliates thereof have been advised of the possibility of such damages.

Some jurisdictions do not allow the limitation of liability for personal injury, or of incidental or consequential damages, so this limitation may not apply to you.

HUDSON METRICS is not responsible for any third-party software and will have no liability of any kind for losses resulting from your use of such third-party software with HUDSON METRICS ‘s software.

Provided however, that nothing herein shall prevent HUDSON METRICS from bringing any action in the courts of any other jurisdiction. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision, or portion thereof, to be unenforceable, the remainder of this License shall continue in full force and effect.
