Customer data privacy policy

The Asian Banker's customer data privacy policy has been developed to demonstrate our commitment to the privacy of the information that you provide us. The policy aims to outline what personal information we collect, what we do or do not do with this information, and why these are necessary. It also conveys to you your rights regarding your personal data shared with us.

The business we are in

The Asian Banker is in the business of disseminating information on news, analysis and trends in the financial services industry. We are also in the business of creating strong and lasting working relationships with high level and influential decision makers for the advancement of best practices and business standards in the industry.

Information collection

We also collect information about users during their participation in certain activities on The Asian Banker website, including but not limited to contests, forums, and polls; and through the use of cookies.

The user-supplied information collected through the registration process, surveys, contest entry forms, polls or other similar vehicles is used to improve the content of our site, or for our marketing purposes. It is not shared with other organisations for commercial purposes unless specifically stated.

Cookies

When you view this website, we may store some data on your computer in the form of a "cookie". This allows us to better match your interests or to store your password to save you having to re-enter it each time.

Security

This site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. When a user is asked to provide his/her credit card information, we provide a secure environment through our partners' systems (using industry standard SSL or SET protocols) for this purpose.

So while we strive to protect such personal data, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any personal data transmitted to us and individuals do so at their own risk. Once any personal data comes into our possession, we will take reasonable steps to protect that information from misuse and loss and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.

A username and password may be essential for you to use some sections of this website. For your own protection, we require you to keep these confidential and secure.
