Privacy Policy

Tradition (the "Company", “we” or “us”) respects the privacy interests of visitors to this Web Site (this “Site”). Your privacy is important to us. This Privacy Statement describes the nature of that respect and commitment by detailing the types of the personal information that we collect, the uses we make of that information, and related information regarding your ability to access, correct, and request deletion of any personal identifying information you choose to give us.

For the purposes of the Privacy Statement, “we”, “us”, or “Tradition” shall be deemed to be the relevant Tradition Group Company providing access to the Website to you. Each such Tradition Group Company shall have an interest in, take the benefit of, and be bound by these terms and conditions, as applicable. Tradition Group Company shall mean any Affiliate of Compagnie Financiere Tradition of Rue de Langallerie 11, CH-1003 Lausanne where the term “Affiliate” shall mean, in respect of any party, persons who control, are controlled by or are under common control with such party. A full list of Tradition Group Companies is available at www.traditiongroup.com/uk/Page/implantation.html.

By accessing this Site, you agree to be bound by the Privacy Statement. If you do not agree to the terms of this Privacy Statement, please do not use this Site. As our business grows and changes, and as technology and Internet use and practices change, the Company may, from time to time, determine that changes in its policies, including this Privacy Statement, are prudent. Each time you use the Site, the current version of the Privacy Statement will apply. Accordingly, when you use the Site, you should check the date of this Policy (which appears at the top) and review any changes since the last version.

I. INFORMATION COLLECTED:

When submitting feedback, your curriculum vitae or other information to the Company via this Site, you may be asked to provide specific identifying information, including without limitation a valid e-mail address. We may collect personally identifiable information (name, email addresses, phone numbers, etc.) that may be voluntarily submitted by you.

We may also collect aggregate information, which is non-personally identifiable/anonymous information, such as frequency of visits to the Site, Site pages most frequently accessed, IP address, browser type, etc.

II. USE OF YOUR INFORMATION:

Identifying information may be used for general statistical analyses of the use of our Site, to improve the content of our Site and offerings, and to customize our Site to better meet your needs.

In addition, the Company and its affiliates may, from time to time, use your personal identifying information in connection with sending you specific, targeted information in which you have expressed interest or which the Company believes would be of interest to you. We also may use aggregated information, which does not identify you personally, for marketing, promotional and other business purposes. You may opt out of receiving special offers, promotions or mailings at any time by (i) writing to the Company at the address given at the end of this Privacy Statement, (ii) sending an email to privacy@tradition.com, or (iii) by clicking on the unsubscribe link within any marketing e-mail you receive from us. Please be sure to include in any e-mail or postal mail, your full name, e-mail address, postal address, and any message. Please note that such requests may take up to ten (10) days to become effective.

III. SHARING, SELLING AND TRADING PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION COLLECTED ONLINE WITH THIRD PARTIES:

Except as described in this Privacy Statement, the Company will not sell our contact list or provide your personal identifying information to any non-affiliated person or entity in the ordinary course of our business, although the Company expressly reserves the right to transfer such information in connection with a change in ownership of the Company or its assets.

The Company may employ third parties who perform various services with respect to this Site. Your personally identifying information is made available to these third party service suppliers strictly for use in connection with the services being performed on behalf of this Site.

We may share or transfer personally identifiable information to unrelated third parties: (i) to comply with a legal requirement, judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on us; (ii) to investigate a possible crime, such as fraud or identity theft; (iii) in connection with the sale, purchase, merger, reorganization, liquidation or dissolution of our Company; or (iv) when we believe it is appropriate to do so to protect the rights, property, or safety of our company or other persons.

IV. ACCESS, CORRECTION AND DELETION:

If you want to see the personal information we have collected about you from this web Site or if you believe any information we have is incorrect and you wish to correct it, please write to the Company at the address given at the end of this Privacy Statement. If the Company changes or deletes information in response to your request, we will not then continue to use it; however, some residual information may remain in backup records or records of deletions.

V. SECURITY:

The Company uses efforts consistent with sound industry practice, such as firewalls and encryption, to safeguard the confidentiality of your personal identifying information. Given the nature of the Internet, however, the Company cannot and does not ensure complete security. The Company shall not be responsible for any breach of security or for the actions of any other person or entity. Hackers pose a threat to any Internet user, and the legal and regulatory status of matters on the Internet is uncertain both in the United States and abroad. For these reasons, the Company cannot and does not guarantee that all of your personal identifying information will never be disclosed in ways you do not expect or which are not described in this Privacy Statement. We will make commercially reasonable efforts to see that your information is treated in compliance with this Privacy Statement.

IN NO EVENT WILL THE COMPANY OR OUR OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, AFFILIATES, AGENTS, LICENSORS, SUPPLIERS OR ANY PARTY INVOLVED IN CREATING, PRODUCING OR DELIVERING THIS SITE BE LIABLE IN ANY MANNER WHATSOEVER FOR ANY DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF: (I) THIS SITE, YOUR ACCESS, USE OR INABILITY TO USE THIS SITE; (ii) ANY FAILURE OR PERFORMANCE, ERROR, OMISSION, INTERRUPTION, DEFECT, DELAY IN OPERATION OR TRANSMISSION, COMPUTER VIRUS OR LINE OR SYSTEM FAILURE (INCLUDING LOSS PROFITS, LOSS OF BUSINESS OR DATA, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, AND DAMAGES THAT RESULT FROM INACCURACY OF THE INFORMATION OR INCONVENIENCE, DELAY, OR LOSS OF THE USE OF THE SITE); (III) PERSONAL INJURY OR PROPERTY DAMAGE, OF ANY NATURE WHATSOEVER, RESULTING FROM YOUR ACCESS TO AND USE OF THE SITE, (IV) ANY UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO OR USE OF OUR SECURE SERVERS AND/OR ANY AND ALL PERSONAL IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION STORED THEREIN, (V) ANY BUGS, VIRUSES, TROJAN HORSES, OR THE LIKE, WHICH MAY BE TRANSMITTED TO OR THROUGH THE SITE BY ANY THIRD PARTY. THE FOREGOING LIMITATIONS APPLY WHETHER THE ALLEGED LIABILITY IS BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT, NEGLIGENCE STRICT LIABILITY OR ANY OTHER BASIS, EVEN IF WE OR OUR AFFILIATES OR ANY OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

VI. CHILDREN:

Children under 18 should not send any information about themselves to us, including information like your name, address or e-mail address. The Company does not knowingly collect personally identifying information from children under the age of 18. In the event that we learn that we have collected such information from a child under 18, the information will be deleted from our database as soon as reasonably possible.
