FLEXNEWS - a business unit of Global Data Systems - respects the privacy rights of our users and is strongly committed to protecting your privacy online.

This policy sets out the type of information we may ask you for, and the ways in which we may use that information.When you visit specific areas of our service (e.g. "Your profile") we will ask you for information about yourself. We will want to know your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address, and in addition, details about your company and its activities. By entering your details in the fields requested, you enable us to provide you with the services you select e.g. "Headline e-mail alerts". Our services are designed to give you the information that you want to receive. Whenever you provide such personal information, we will treat that information in accordance with this policy.

Other than as required by law, or as set out in this privacy statement, we will not disclose information about you to any third party without your written permission.

If you have given us information about yourself and would like copies of that information, or if you would like us to correct any factual inaccuracies in that information or if you would like that information deleted from our records, then please contact us.

When you enter our websites your computer will automatically be issued with a cookie. Cookies (or similar electronic tools) are small text files that identify your computer to our server. Cookies in themselves do not identify the individual user, just the computer used. Cookies enable us to collect information about how our web sites and services are being used and how to manage them more efficiently.

Data gathered includes information about your use of our services, such as generic types of data accessed, times and volume of use of the services and Traffic Data. Traffic Data includes logs, details of networks, data and systems accessed, details of the sender and recipients of messages sent over our services, times and location of log on or access, duration of sessions, and similar usage or system data. Traffic Data may sometimes be related not only to companies but also named individuals.

Information that is supplied by cookies helps us to provide you with a better service and to analyse the profile of our clients. You can remove the ability to receive cookies by adjusting the browser in your computer but you should note that doing so may materially distort the quality of the service and data you receive. You therefore do this at your own risk.

If your employer subscribed to the service on your behalf then we may pass certain information to your employer about your use of the service where your employer has a legitimate reason to receive it. Similarly if you are the administrative contact in your organisation for one of our services, we may pass your details to others within your company for this purpose.

Global Data Systems may store your information for reference in its databases such as the Customer Relationship database. The information may be retained and used by Global Data Systems for a reasonable period, reflecting our need to answer queries or resolve problems, provide improved and new services and satisfy any data retention requirements of the law. This means we may retain information after an individual ceases to use our services or after the individual has ceased interacting with us.

Global Data Systems reserves the right to change this privacy policy at any time and undertakes to inform you of any such changes by publishing them online.
