PRIVACY & DATA POLICY

 

Why do we have this page?

We know that when you visit our site, you just want help finding the best forex brokers on the internet. But we also know that you won’t feel comfortable doing that unless your rights are protected at all times. That’s why we’ve put together this page that has all the information you need to understand how we treat your data and respect your online privacy and data rights. Here, we’ll tell you how we comply with all applicable laws and regulations related to data rights, how we protect your anonymity, and how exactly we use your personal data. If you have any questions about how we handle sensitive data, this is the page for you.

 

IMPORTANT TERMS

To get started, we need to be on the same page when it comes to the key terms and phrases in the world of data and privacy policy. Here’s a quick glossary of important acronyms you’ll see throughout this page.

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

This the name given to a set of EU regulations that came into effect on 25 May 2018. These new regulations govern how businesses and websites are required to handle private data and the privacy of their users. While these laws can be convoluted and difficult for consumers to understand, they’re designed to help protect your rights while you are on the internet. For more information on GDPR, take a look at the following website: https://www.eugdpr.org/

Do Not Track (DNT)

Your favourite web browser includes a “Do Not Track” function. If you activate this feature, it will inform any websites you visit that your browsing activity should not be tracked.

Data Protection Officer (DPO)

GDPR regulations mandate the creation of a new position known as the Data Protection Officer (or DPO), who is in charge of all of our personal data and privacy policies.

THE DATA WE COLLECT FROM YOU

At TopRatedForexBrokers.com, there are two basic types of data we collect from our visitors. That includes both Population Metrics, which are all about data that has been anonymized, and Personal Information, which can include identifying aspects. You always have the ability to change how much personal information you share with us, as we want to give you the information you need to decide how much data we should collect.

Population Metrics

When we talk about Population Metrics, we’re referring to the anonymized data that we mainly use to see how our users interact with our website as a group, rather than individually. Since that data is anonymized, we have no way of connecting any of this information to anyone’s individual identity. In order to collect this useful data, we use cookies that are stored in your web browser. Each one contains a random number that is used as an identifier, with no personal data included. Each time you visit, we’ll swap this out for a new cookie, so that we know how often you’re visiting the site, how many total users we have, and what pages and features our users like – and which ones they might be able to do without.

All that said, you don’t have to take part in our population metrics if you don’t want to. In order to opt-out of inclusion in this data, refer to the following instructions for your specific browser:

Personal Data

The one time that we might collect personalized, identifiable information that belongs to you is if you choose to opt-in to receiving one of our helpful newsletters. When you subscribe to a newsletter, we will need to ask you for your email address. You’ll then receive a verification email from us to ensure we have the correct address and that it was you who signed up for our notifications. Once we verify that your information is correct, we’ll be able to confirm your consent and verification, and you’ll find yourself included in the lucky group that gets special offers and information from us. Incidentally, if our verification email sits for two weeks without you responding, we’ll simply delete that email address from our records.

You may always choose to opt out of getting further emails from us at any time. To do so, simply click on the unsubscribe button you’ll find on each of our email contacts to you. Alternately, you can email our DPO at [[DPO_EMAIL]] requesting removal. If you take either of these steps, we will remove all personal, identifiable data we have from you.

If you’re unsure whether or not you’ve signed up for one of our newsletters, send an email over to our DPO at [[DPO_EMAIL]], and we can let you know your current subscription status.

YOUR RIGHTS AND OUR OBLIGATIONS

You have a number of rights that you should be aware of concerning your personal data. At any time while we are processing or in control of your information, you can choose to:

Request that we cease processing your data.

You may ask us at any time to stop processing the personal information that we’ve collected with your consent. If you ask us to do so, we will anonymize any data that we have from you, and notify all of our third-party vendors so that they know to do the same with any of your identifiable information they may have received from us.

Ask for access to our data.

At any time, you can ask to see the information we have collected from you, to confirm whether we have any personal data related to you at all, or to do both. We will respond to this request by sending you an email that contains all information. However, we might need to confirm your identity before we can send you this data. When that is the case, we’ll have our DPO contact you first to verify your identity.

Request rectification of your data.

If you ask us to rectify your data, we’ll be happy to change or correct any erroneous information we have from you. We’ll also get in touch with our third-party vendors so they can take the same steps.

Request to be forgotten.

You may choose to invoke your right to be forgotten at any time. If you assert this right, we’ll anonymize all of your personal information in our possession, and we’ll let our third-party vendors of your decision so they can do the same.

Impose restrictions on our data processing.

We don’t do very much data processing, but you still have the right to ask that additional restrictions are put into place. If you make this request, we will comply with any restrictions you feel are necessary, provided that we have the ability to do so.
