This Privacy Policy was last updated October 11, 2012

This Website Privacy Policy sets forth the policy of Financial Diligence Networks LLC (“Financial Diligence Networks”, “we”, “us” and/or “our”) with respect to data that is collected from users of the publicly available portions of our Service. All capitalized terms not defined herein shall have the meaning attributed to them in the Website Terms of Use . If you become an Authorized User of the Service you will also be required to accept the Service Terms of Use and Service Privacy Policy. If you are based outside the United States, you should be aware that your data will be transmitted to the United States and processed in accordance with US law. US law may impose different requirements and provide for different protections from the law of the jurisdiction in which you are based.

What Data Do We Collect?

In operating the Service, Financial Diligence Networks collects certain personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) and other non-individually identifiable data from users, as further described below.

Information Collected From Users: When users request an invitation to join and use the Services they may be asked to provide information about their business and to provide Personal Information about themselves and certain other individuals who may be permitted to use the Service as representatives of the business. Users may be asked to provide information about their firm and details about their firm and investment products. Users may also be required to provide contact information, and other details regarding the organization.

Other Data

Usage Data: Financial Diligence Networks collects certain data about all users’ use of the Service, such as the information about the pages of the web site visited, the length of time each page was visited and similar data. Financial Diligence Networks may use such information and pool it with other information to analyze the use of the Service. Financial Diligence Networks may also collect and maintain users’ IP addresses.

Cookies: In operating the Service, we may use a technology called “cookies.” Our cookies help provide additional functionality to the Service and help us analyze Service usage more accurately. For instance, our Service may set a cookie on a user’s browser that allows you to access the Service without needing to remember and then enter a password more than once during a visit to the Service. On most web browsers, you will find a “help” section on the toolbar. Please refer to this section for information on how to receive notification when you are receiving a new cookie and how to turn cookies off. We recommend that you leave cookies turned on because they allow you to take advantage of some of the features of our Service.

How Do We Use The Data That We Collect?

Financial Diligence Networks uses the Personal Information and other data that is provided to it through the Service in order to make the Service available to users. We may also use information collected through the Service to respond to requests for information about our Service and to address other inquiries. Financial Diligence Networks may also use data collected through the Service to analyze and improve the Service. In addition, Financial Diligence Networks may use the contact information provided by users to contact such users about the Service and other products and services offered by Financial Diligence Networks. Users will be permitted to opt-out of receiving marketing related electronic communications from Financial Diligence Networks by following the opt-out instructions in each such email sent by Financial Diligence Networks or by contacting us as indicated below in the contact information section of our footer. All users, including those who opt-out of the receipt of marketing correspondence, will continue to receive electronic communications related to the Service and their use thereof (such as correspondence related to customer service, announcements of changes to the Service and so forth).

Do We Share the Data that We Receive?

Financial Diligence Networks only shares Personal Information and other data that is provided to it through the Service in the following limited circumstances:

Services Providers, Consultants and Other Third Parties: Financial Diligence Networks, like many businesses, sometimes hires other companies to perform certain business-related functions. When we employ another company to perform a function of this nature, we only provide them with the data that they need to perform their specific function.

Business Transfers: In the event of a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution or similar event, Personal Information and other data may be part of the transferred assets.

Aggregated Data: We may disclose data collected through the Service in aggregate form in order to describe the Service to current and prospective business partners and to other non-affiliated third parties for other lawful purposes. We may also aggregate data collected through the services to create various indices and other products.

Links to Other Web Sites

This Website Privacy Policy applies only to the Service. This Service may provide links to web sites and services operated by third parties (each, a “Third Party Site”). The operators of such Third Party Sites will have their own privacy policies with respect to the information that they collect and, as such, we suggest contacting them directly for information on those policies.


Financial Diligence Networks takes reasonable commercial measures to protect the Personal Information and other data that is collected through the Service from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. However, no Internet or e-mail transmission is ever fully secure or error free. In particular, e-mail sent to or from this Service may not be secure, and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to us via e-mail.

Please review this Website Privacy Policy periodically, and especially before you submit any Personal Information to us through the Service.
