Data Oversight

As part of our Services, we collect, use, transfer, and distribute publicly-available data on investors for our clients and partners.

MarketCurrents uses data hosting service providers located within the United States. Accordingly, all personal information described under this privacy policy may be rerouted outside the European Union (EU) borders. By using our websites and/or related services, you consent to the cross-border personal data transfer.

MarketCurrents is subject to the EU Standard Contractual Clauses that delimit the agreements between such service providers and their clients. The clauses provide a framework regarding the nature of the interaction between you and us to ensure your data flows within the confines of established regulations and guidelines and relevant legislation, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (GDPR).

We have collected publicly available information as part of our data intelligence gathering research as we regard it to be useful to our clientele. Given your high-status and the amount of data we collect, it is not achievable to contact you independently to inform you of your rights under the EU Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC, or its successor legislation, the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (“GDPR”) if you are an EU or UK data subject. While the GDPR currently only applies to EU and UK citizens, we hope this notice will be helpful to all the data subjects who may be under other applicable data protection laws or may just want to know how we are processing their data and of their right to review and make corrections. Accordingly, we are providing this Notice to you on our website as written here.

We are a B2B data, news and events organizer focusing on trending industries. Our events generate a global audience for investors, family offices and the professionals who do business with them (our “Customers). We complement the quality of the events with critical market intelligence and data on the markets on our radar. We disseminate the insights via online news and e-reports and publish impactful analyses that identify patterns, trends, and primary insights. We also collect data on investors globally and provide readily available information on them in a consolidated offering.

Our customers are decision-makers in their respective stations and industries who need regular updates on major themes like regulation, technology, risks, demands, and emerging issues. They include senior-level executives like chief executive officers, chief financial officers, business analysts, and entrepreneurs.

We tailor our research to help the customers properly calibrate their scope of opportunities and risks. As a data subject, you are a valuable target for these customers, where some could already be your business partners; in such a case, they might want to use the insights we provide to elevate the business relationship to a higher dimension.

Also, some of the customers hope to build new business relationships, which could be with you should you establish a common ground.

As part of our investor research, we use data generated directly from the investor subject, as well as publicly accessible sources including but not limited to:

  • Directories
  • Public Registers
  • Print and broadcast media
  • Internet company websites
  • Trade References
  • Event attendance information & speakers found publicly.

Categories Of Data Collected & Storage

While using our Website and related services, MarketCurrents may ask you to provide certain personally identifiable information (“Personal Data”). We classify Personal Data into four primary categories:

  • Contact data:
  • – Includes telephone numbers, email addresses, social media handles, and business addresses.
  • Identity data:
  • – Here, we collect your first name and last name, title (such as Mr., Mrs., Miss., Dr., Prof., and so on), and job title.
  • Technical data:
  • – Includes Internet Protocol (IP) addresses and other relevant usage data.
  • User login credentials:
  • – Our clients’ who register on our websites have their usernames and passwords encrypted and stored on robustly secure servers in the United States.
  • To clarify, usage data that falls under the technical data category includes the traffic data we discussed earlier herein. The information is your device’s IP address, browser type and version, the specific pages of our Website you view, the date and time of your visit, and other diagnostic data.

When you use our services with a mobile device, we may collect information about the device type, the mobile phone’s unique ID, the operating system, other information related to browsers and IP, and other diagnostic data.

We only share publicly available Personal Data with our customers. The range of information we share may include but is not limited to your full name and business contact information, your investment activity, and potential areas of investment.

We have formal contracts with our customers, with every transaction captured in a written agreement and signed by top-level executives. The formal contracts ensure that the shared information goes to lawful use as stipulated by relevant data protection legislation in the regions that we operate.

Legitimate Interest

For EU residents, the GDPR conditions the processing of user data on three primary items: the processing is not required by law, but there is a clear benefit to it, there is little risk of the processing hurting data subject’s privacy, and the data subject should reasonably expect their data to be used in that away.

As part of our obligation under the GDPR and other similarly worded regulations in the jurisdictions that we operate, we have done an exhaustive appraisal of our data processing activities regarding privacy impact assessment and are satisfied that our processing is legitimate. Furthermore, we are convinced that our processing of your data helps MarketCurrents achieve its legitimate interest and that our way of using the information outweighs any prejudice to your privacy

Retention Of Your Data

We already made you aware that we are a market intelligence outfit targeting other businesses whose goals align with the information in our possession. Accordingly, we will maintain your data in our secure databases as long as it is relevant. Please note that we regularly review our databases and purge information that may no longer align with our stated business model.

Integrity Of Your Data

We already mentioned that we regularly review the data in our databases to purge inconsistencies as they occur. Despite these efforts, we cannot assure the veritable accuracy of datasets because much of the information we collect is historical. However, we are always working hard towards streamlining the information to correct any mistakes.

Access And Correction Of Your Data

If you are located in the EU, UK, or in a country that provides access and correction rights, we welcome your request to access, correct, or update the data that we hold about you. You can request that we delete your information concerning data that does not meet a lawful justification for processing as well. If you wish to exercise these rights, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us at info@marketcurrents.co

Changes To Our Policy

We reserve the right to make changes to this Privacy Policy as needed to reflect our practices and/or comply with the law.
