Privacy Policy and Data Protection

We at Federated respect your right to privacy and comply with our obligations under applicable data protection laws. To the extent any information you provide or which We obtain from the Site constitutes personal data, We have set procedures for the use of that information.

We retain two types of information:

1. "Personal Data"

This is data that identifies you or can be used to identify or contact you and may include, but is not limited to, your name, address, telephone contact information, and/or user IP addresses in circumstances where they have not been deleted, clipped or anonymised ("Personal Data"). Such Personal Data is collected through the information submitted by you through the Site and/or created in the course of the business relationship with Federated. Such Personal Data is used to respond to any queries you submit through the Site and otherwise in order to provide any agreed services to you.

2. "Non-Personal Data"

Like most websites, We use cookies and other analytical tools to gather statistical and other analytical information collected on an aggregate basis of all visitors to our Site. Some of these cookies are required in order to operate the Site. This Non-Personal Data comprises information that cannot be used to identify or contact you, such as demographic information regarding, for example, user IP addresses where they have been clipped or anonymised, browser types and other anonymous statistical data involving the use of our Site.

We use the Non-Personal Data gathered from visitors to our Site in an aggregate form to improve our online service by, for example, remembering user preferences and online selections and to improve the performance of the Site and to get a better understanding of where our visitors come from. We collect log file information from all our visitors which record website usage and information such as the time, date, IP address, HTTP status and bytes sent and received. We only use log files to record visitors' use of the site on an anonymous basis (so that individuals are not identified) and the cookies that collect such information expire after a period of 2 years. The cookies used on the Site do not track user behavior on any third party websites.

We also use, in conjunction with our email service provider, additional cookies that measure the effectiveness of our advertising.

For further information about cookies, including how to disable cookies on your Internet browser, please visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org/

Please note that your telephone call with Federated may be monitored or recorded to maintain and improve services and for purposes of complying with regulatory obligations.

We will also disclose your Personal Data if We believe in good faith that We are required to disclose it in order to comply with any applicable law, a summons, a search warrant, a court or regulatory order, or other statutory requirement.

In the event of a proposed or actual merger, sale or other transfer of all or the relevant portion of the assets or business of Federated or any entity controlling Federated, We reserve the right to transfer your Personal Data to the potential acquirer or successor for due diligence purposes and to complete the transaction. Such third party may only use your Personal Data for the purposes that you provided it to Us.

From time to time, it may be necessary for your Personal Data to be transferred to persons in other countries. By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with these Terms and to ensure that anyone to whom we pass your personal data agrees to treat such information with the same level of protection as if Federated were dealing with it.

Your Personal Data is held on secure servers hosted by our Internet Service Provider. However, the nature of the Internet is such that We cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you transmit to Us via the Internet. No data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. However, We will take reasonable steps (including appropriate technical and organisational measures) to protect your Personal Data.

You may inform Us of any changes in your Personal Data, and in accordance with our obligations under applicable data protection laws We will update or delete your Personal Data accordingly.
