Fat Tail Investment Research takes individuals’ privacy very seriously. We are also aware of the potential for threats to your security and privacy. Please take a few moments to review the steps that Fat Tail Investment Research takes to ensure your privacy and security while you are using our websites.

Our privacy policy outlines how we collect and handle your personal information. References to ‘FTIR’, ‘we’, ‘our’ and ‘us’ refer to Fat Tail Investment Research and its related companies.

How and what personal information we collect

We collect your personal information (including your address, contact details, and credit card details) only when you place an order with us or when you contact us about your subscription or our other services. When you place an order, we will provide a secure (SSL, encrypted) connection and require you to submit only the information needed to complete and fulfil your order. This may include, but is not limited to, your name, credit card details, email address, postal address and phone number. Only our authorised employees will have access to this information.

You can update your personal information by contacting us.

How we use cookies

Cookies are small files placed on your computer by a web page when you visit it. They can be used to store all sorts of useful information to make your next visit easier and more convenient, but some people are uncomfortable not knowing what information is in a cookie.

The FTIR website uses cookies to compile statistics on the use of the various pages on our site and to provide a unique user experience by tailoring which advertisements you see. From time to time we may use data collected from cookies to customise products and services we may offer you. When we send you emails, we include a ‘web beacon’ to allow us to determine the number of people who open our emails. When you click on a link in an email, we may record this individual response to allow us to customise our offerings to you. Web beacons collect only limited information, such as a cookie identifier, time and date of a page being viewed, and a description of the page on which the web beacon resides (i.e. the URL).

Web beacons can be refused when delivered via email. If you do not wish to receive web beacons via email, you will need to disable HTML images or refuse HTML emails (choose to receive ‘text only’ emails) via your email software.

When we send you emails we may also include tracking that identifies what marketing material you watch or read. This tracking makes you personally identifiable since we use your email address.

How we use your personal information

Your personal information may be used to:

  • verify your identity when we are speaking with you;
  • assist you to subscribe to our services and products;
  • administer and manage our services, including charging and billing;
  • research and develop our services; and
  • promote and market services and products to you (where we do so, we will always give you an opportunity to let us know if you do not wish to receive marketing and promotions from us).

If some or all of the personal information we require is not collected, we may be unable to efficiently provide you with the services you require.

Who can access your personal information

Only authorised employees of FTIR have access to any information you provide. We may turn over any pertinent information to any legal or regulatory authority that has a demonstrable right and takes the proper steps to access it. We may also, if necessary, provide your personal information to our lawyers, accountants, auditors and other third parties (such as, but not limited to, IT providers) who provide services to us or act on our behalf, for the purposes of giving effect to the services you request from us, to improve support and provide a better, more relevant experience for you, or as necessary to conduct our business.

Where your personal information is disclosed, it is provided by secure, encrypted email to reputable third parties and we will ensure that the information is to be held, used or disclosed consistent with the Australian Privacy Principles.

If you inquire about one of your subscriptions, we may ask you to submit some additional information only to verify your identity. Remember, in this case we only ask you to confirm information you have already given us.

You have the right to contact us and ask what information we may hold about you. Before you can obtain access to any information about you that FTIR holds, your identity will first need to be verified. A fee may apply for such access.

What if some of the information held is incorrect?

We endeavour to keep all information about you current. If any information we hold is incorrect please contact us.
