Finance for the Future - PRIVACY POLICY - Scope and Meaning
This Privacy Policy statement covers all services provided by Finance for the Future.

PRIVACY POLICY STATEMENT
This Privacy Policy details the approach that Finance for the Future takes to the use of personal information from, and related to, our customers.

At Finance for the Future we use information collected on-line to develop and enhance the services we offer to you and to help us build our business. We take privacy issues seriously and are open about the way data is collected and used. This policy outlines the principles that we follow.

What data is collected and how is it used?
When you visit a Finance for the Future website, the only data that we capture is that submitted via e-mail, by submission of a feedback form or by completion of an order form. Such data is maintained only for so long as necessary in order to fulfil your feedback request or order.

When you register for a service provided by Finance for the Future, you may need to choose a user name and password for authentication purposes. For administration purposes, we will also require your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address. This may be used to send you information about your account and any Finance for the Future  promotions. You may elect not to receive such promotions.

Is personal information disclosed to Third Parties?
No. Finance for the Future does not sell, trade, lease or rent your personal information to others. The primary use that we make of personal information is to produce aggregate statistics about our customers, sales, traffic and related information but these statistics do not include any personally identifying information.

Is personal information used for any other purposes?
From time to time Finance for the Future may employ other companies and individuals to work on our behalf. Examples of such work might include: sending e-mail, analysing data and providing customer call-centre services. Such agents have access to the personal information needed to perform their functions but may not use it for other purposes.

Our Quality Control department may contact you as part of our continuous quality development programme. Such calls will be made only to identify your experience of our services and to elicit your suggestions for improvement. You will be under no obligation to answer any such questions.

We may ask our market research partners to contact you by telephone as part of a survey of our services. You will be able to choose at the time whether or not you want to take part in any such survey.

If you use an Finance for the Future transactional or shopping service, we will pass information necessary to complete your order to our payment partners. Such information will typically include name, address and credit card billing details.

How is personal privacy protected?
Finance for the Future is registered as a Data Controller with the Data Protection Registrar and uses up to date industry procedures to keep personal data as safe and secure as possible and to protect such data against loss, unauthorized disclosure or access. Please remember that you are responsible for protecting your password/user name and must not share it or allow its disclosure it to anyone.

Finance for the Future reserves the right to change this Privacy Policy and continued use of our services signifies your agreement to any changes. In the event of material changes you will be contacted by e-mail.

 

What are cookies?

A cookie is a tiny file that is saved by your browser when you visit a website. It enables certain information about your visit to be stored by the site.

Some of these cookies are essential in order for a website to run as you expect it to, while others allow us to provide you with a better service (for example, understanding what content is most popular, to provide you more of the same).

Our cookie policy

We understand you need to reach the most relevant information quickly and easily. So, our main aim of using cookies is to provide you with the most optimised 'user experience' possible.

Our website analytics tool uses cookies in order to analyse how, when and where visitors use our websites, but this information is not tied to personally identifiable information. We only use this data to improve your experience. For example, we are able to find out what the most popular content is each week, and update our homepage to reflect that current interest.

Some pages have third party cookies to enable us to know how many people engage with the adverts we place elsewhere that guide people to this website. We analyse this data regularly to tailor adverts to user trends.

We currently operate an 'implied consent' policy. This means that we assume you agree with the usage of our cookies. If you do not agree, we have provided guidance to help you to alter your browser settings to match the level of privacy you require (see ‘How to manage cookies via your browser settings’ section below) or you can adjust the cookies this website uses by clicking here
