In addition, information that you submit to Lykke in response to an email request for information or other outreach from Lykke, or through the Lykke employment application processes, will also be treated in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

In this written Privacy Policy, Lykke describes the use of your personal data by Lykke and the scope and breadth of our commitment to privacy. Lykke may, in its discretion, amend this Privacy Policy from time to time. Any material changes to our policy will be reflected on this page, so that you remain informed about the information we collect and how we use it. By exploring and using the Sites and Apps, and by submitting information to Lykke, you agree to Lykke use of such information as described herein.

The Sites and Apps may contain links to external Sites, which are not governed by this privacy policy, and Lykke does not take responsibility for the privacy practices of any third-party Sites to which we link. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of such Sites before you submit information there.

Information that we collect, and how we use it

Lykke collects information from our users when they create their account for the Sites or the Apps, when they request copies of publications, seek additional information regarding our services, or register for conferences and other Lykke events. Some of the forms for Lykke registration, enrollment, account setup, and other purposes may ask users to give us contact information, unique personal identifiers, financial information, subject areas of interest, and/or demographic information. We may use these data to tailor the visitor’s experience at our Sites and Apps or, if applicable, to assess the candidacy of an individual and qualifications for employment with Lykke.

You agree that Lykke may use any personal information that you provide, such as your name, address, email address, phone number, subject areas of interest, etc., to inform you about updates to the service and to notify you about other products and services offered by Lykke that may be of interest to you. We will not sell, share, or rent or otherwise make available any of that information to other parties, except that we may disclose the information to third parties who perform services on our behalf and have a need to access the information in connection with the performance of those services. In addition, you agree that Lykke may disclose your contact information in response to inquiries by bona-fide rights owners in connection with allegations of infringement of copyright or other proprietary rights arising from information that you have posted on the Sites or otherwise provided to Lykke. Individuals that subscribe to email newsletters are given the opportunity to opt out of promotions, news, and information at the time of signup. Lykke also provides users the opportunity to opt out of receiving communications from us at the points where we request information. You may also feel free to contact us as indicated below if you wish to opt out of communications received from Lykke at a later point.

Email addresses

We may collect the email addresses at the point of subscription of users who wish to receive email notification of publications and press releases in identified subject areas of interest, and of those who send us email messages or express interest regarding our services or employment opportunities, or register for conferences and other Lykke-sponsored events. We will not, however, share any email addresses with any third party or send unsolicited email to any of the addresses we collect, except in very limited circumstances as set forth in this policy.

If you opted in to receive information about our product, updates, and offers, we will use your name and email address to send this information to you. If you no longer wish to receive these communications, you can unsubscribe by following the instructions contained in the emails you receive or on our Sites. Please note that we may send you transactional and relationship messages, even if you have unsubscribed from our marketing communications. For instance, if our service is going to be temporarily suspended for maintenance, we might send you an email to update you.
