Privacy Policy

Ipex Capital is firmly committed to privacy, the responsible use of information, the need to safeguard the privacy of our clients and visitors to our website, and to maintaining compliance with privacy legislation worldwide.

This statement sets out Ipex Capital’s privacy policy for the use and holding of personal information that is provided to Ipex by you.

What information do we gather?

The type of client/visitor information Ipex collects generally includes a name, work address, telephone numbers, e-mail address and any other relevant contact details which you have communicated to us by whatever means whether by e-mail, through this website or otherwise. We may also collect information about the use of our products and services, any preferences that we are told about, or information that is submitted voluntarily to us, such as requests for further information in a specific area of interest, an on-line survey or registration for a conference or event.

Information may also be indirectly collected through Ipex’s Internet access logs or cookies. This occurs automatically when you access ipex.com. This information is used to enhance your visit to our site. It does not personally identify you and we do not collect sensitive information, such as your political or religious beliefs, ethnic background or sexual preference.

What are ‘cookies’?

Cookies are the tools that give websites a sense of memory, allowing them to recognize one user's computer session from another. For example, this site uses cookies to count the number of visitors to our site.

Use of cookies on this site

A cookie is a text-only string of information that a website transfers to the cookie file of the browser on your computer's hard disk, so that the website can remember which computer you are using to visit the site. A cookie typically contains the name of the domain from which the cookie has come, the 'lifetime' of the cookie, and a value - usually a randomly generated unique number.

When you visit our site we send you a cookie, which is used in the following ways:

  • to help us recognize your computer as a unique visitor (not just a number); so, if you are requesting publications from various parts of this site, the cookie can memorise your shopping list for you and put it on your order form.
  • to compile anonymous, aggregated statistics that allow us to understand how visitors use our site, and to help us improve the structure of our site. We cannot identify you personally in this way.

How to refuse the use of cookies

You may wish to decline any cookies sent from our site to your computer. Some Internet browsers accept cookies automatically. You may need to adjust your browser settings so that you have the option to decline any cookies.

Deleting any cookies that have been installed in the cookie folder of your browser is easy. For example, if you are using Microsoft's Internet Explorer browser you should:

  • open 'Windows Explorer'
  • click on the 'Search' button on the tool bar
  • type 'cookie' into the search box for 'Folders and Files'
  • select 'My Computer' in the 'Look In' box
  • click 'Search Now'
  • double click on the folders that are found
  • 'Select' the relevant cookie file
  • press the 'Delete' button on your keyboard.

If you are not using Microsoft's Internet Explorer, then you should select 'cookies' in your browser's 'Help' function for information on where to find your cookie folder.

If you do not wish to accept cookies sent from this site, but are unable to delete them from your browser, you should leave this site immediately.
