Privacy Policy

We are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy.

In this privacy policy, “we” or “us” refers to Elliott Advisors (HK) Limited of Suites 1102-1105, Charter House 8 Connaught Road Central, Hong Kong and our affiliates and associates. Our contact details are set out at the end of this Privacy Policy.

This policy and any other documents referred to in it explains how we collect, hold, use and disclose your personal information.

Your personal information will be handled by us in accordance with all applicable privacy and data protection laws, including the privacy and data protection laws in your country to the extent that they are applicable (collectively, the Privacy Laws).

INFORMATION WE MAY COLLECT FROM YOU

The types of information that we collect about you may include:

  • Information that you provide by filling in forms on our site www.fixingbhp.com (our Site). This includes information (such as your email address) provided at the time of registering to use our site, subscribing to our service, posting material or requesting further services. We may also ask you for information if you report a problem with our site.
  • If you contact us, we may keep a record of that correspondence and other information that you choose to provide us.
  • We may also invite you to complete surveys that we use for research purposes, although you do not have to respond to them.
  • Details of your visits to our site including, but not limited to, traffic data, location data, weblogs and other communication data, and the resources that you access, without identifying your identity or profiling your activities.

Generally we will collect personal information about you directly from you (for example, when you sign up for our mailing list or send us an e-mail with information about yourself). Where permitted by the Privacy Laws, we may also collect personal information about you from our affiliates or through our agents and representatives, from publicly available sources of information, or in some cases, from third parties.

MANDATORY AND OPTIONAL INFORMATION – CONSEQUENCES OF NOT PROVIDING YOUR INFORMATION

You must provide your information for registering to use our site, subscribing to our service, posting material, requesting further services or reporting a problem with our site. If you do not wish us to process your information for such purposes, it’s possible that we will not be able to provide certain services.

Providing your personal information in relation to surveys or to receive marketing material is optional and your information will only be collected subject to your consent. Not providing your information for these purposes will not have any negative consequences for you.


IP ADDRESSES

We may collect information about your computer, including (where available) your IP address, operating system and browser type, for site security and administration but not for profiling purposes.


COOKIES

Our website uses cookies to distinguish you from other users of our website. This helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our website and also allows us to improve our site. A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we store on your browser or the hard drive of your computer if you agree. In particular, we use cookies to remember a user’s response to the regulatory gateway so that they don’t have to respond every time they visit, and to enable use of Google Analytics so that user behaviour can be anonymously analysed. You can accept, disable and reject cookies easily by adjusting your browser settings. Please be aware that total or partial disabling of technical cookies may affect the proper functioning of features reserved to registered users, whereas disabling third-party cookies will not affect your browsing experience in any way.


COUNTRIES WHERE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION MAY BE STORED OR TRANSFERRED

The personal information that we collect from you will generally be held in the United States. However, from time to time we may transfer your personal information to, or authorize access to it by, affiliated companies, including entities outside the United States and in countries other than your own, in order that your personal information may be processed for the purposes set out below. The countries to which your personal information may be transferred will depend on the circumstances, but may include Australia, Hong Kong or the United Kingdom.

In these circumstances, we will ensure that any disclosure of personal information to recipients in countries other than your own is made in compliance with any applicable requirements of the Privacy Laws.

Some of the countries to which your personal information may be disclosed may have privacy and data protection laws that do not offer an equivalent level of protection to the privacy and data protection laws in your country. To the maximum extent permitted by the Privacy Laws, you consent to us sharing your personal information with overseas entities without requiring those overseas entities to handle your personal information in accordance with the privacy and data protection laws of your country (or an equivalent level of protection).

All information you provide to us is stored on secure servers. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your information transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features in accordance with the requirements of the Privacy Laws to try to prevent unauthorised access, by adopting all the minimum security measures necessary according to the kind of processing.

Your personal information will be kept for a period not exceeding that which is necessary for the purposes for which it was collected (or for which it can be lawfully used), after which it will be destroyed or rendered anonymous.


PURPOSES OF PROCESSING AND USES MADE OF THE INFORMATION

We store and process your personal information electronically or in hard copy form. We use personal information held about you in the following ways:
