Data protection is of high importance for us at City Falcon Limited, which operates cityfalcon.com and cityfalcon.co.uk.

GDPR promotes fairness and transparency for all individuals in respect of their personal data. This privacy policy applies to all data we process, and by using City Falcon Limited, you consent to our collection and use of such data. This policy, together with our Terms of Service explain how we may use the information we collect about you, as well as your rights over any personal information we hold about you.

1. Definitions

The data protection declaration of City Falcon Limited is based on the terms used by the European legislator for the adoption of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our data protection declaration should be legible and understandable for the general public, as well as our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to first explain the terminology used.
In this data protection declaration, we use, inter alia, the following terms:

a) Personal data
Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (“data subject”). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

b) Data subject
Data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person, whose personal data is processed by the controller responsible for the processing.

2. Data we collect

As a data controller, we collect a variety of data in order to deliver our services. We have provided further detail below about the specific types of data we collect and our reasons for doing so.

2.1. What data do we ask you to provide to us, and why.

City Falcon Limited collects a series of general data and information when a data subject or automated system calls up any website owned by City Falcon Limited. This general data and information are stored in the server log files. Collected may be (1) name, (2) email address, (3) locations, (4) the browser types and versions used, (5) the operating system used by the accessing system, (6) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrers), (7) the sub-websites, (8) the date and time of access to the Internet site, (9) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (10) the Internet service provider of the accessing system, and (11) any other similar data and information that may be used in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using these general data and information, City Falcon Limited does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimise the content of our website, (3) ensure the long-term viability of our information technology systems and website technology, and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in case of a cyber-attack. Therefore, City Falcon Limited analyses anonymously collected data and information statistically, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, and to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.

2.2. What personal data do we share.

We rely on third-party service providers to perform a variety of services on our behalf. For example, we may rely on service providers to host data, process payment transactions and analyse data to improve our services. To do so, we may need to share your personal information with them:

It may be necessary to transfer your data to suppliers/service providers where we rely on storage, system and administrative support from outside the European Economic Area. Therefore, the processing of your data may involve a transfer of data to countries outside of European Union.

2.3. How do we keep your personal data secure.

City Falcon Limited is committed to being transparent and taking all reasonable and appropriate steps to keeping your personal information secure and to protect it from misuse, loss, or unauthorised access. We do this by having in place a range of appropriate technical and organisational measures, including internal policies of best practice and training for staff.

2.4. How you can access and manage this data

You can access and manage your data in your account settings or by sending a request to [email protected]

3. Cookies and Web Beacons

The Internet pages of City Falcon Limited use cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored in a computer system via an Internet browser.
Through the use of cookies, City Falcon Limited can provide the users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting.
By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimised with the user in mind. Cookies allow us, as previously mentioned, to recognise our website users. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to utilise our website. The website user that uses cookies, e.g. does not have to enter access data each time the website is accessed, because this is taken over by the website, and the cookie is thus stored on the user's computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shopping cart in an online shop. The online store remembers the articles that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping cart via a cookie.
The data subject may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies through our website by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used, and may thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies may be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all popular Internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be entirely usable.
If you wish to disable cookies, you may do so through your individual browser options. More detailed information about cookie management with specific web browsers can be found at the browsers' respective websites.

4. Subscription to our newsletters and alerts

On the website of City Falcon Limited, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our enterprise's newsletter. The input mask used for this purpose determines what personal data are transmitted, as well as when the newsletter is ordered from the controller.
If you agree, we may contact you:

  • with offers and information about our products or services
  • with offers and information about selected partners' products or services
  • for customer research eg to help improve our services
We like to hear your views to help us improve our service. From time to time, we may contact you to ask your opinions. Again, if you do not want to be contacted for this purpose, make your choice on the Preferences page.

5. Newsletter-Tracking

The newsletter of City Falcon Limited contains so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic embedded in such emails, which are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and analysis. This allows a statistical analysis of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, City Falcon Limited may see if and when an email was opened by a data subject, and which links in the email were called up by data subjects.

6. Contact via the website

The website of City Falcon Limited contains information that enables a quick electronic contact to our enterprise, as well as direct communication with us, which also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (email address). If a data subject contacts the controller by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject are automatically stored. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the data controller are stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject. There is no transfer of this personal data to third parties.

7. Blog subscription and comments

If a data subject leaves a comment on the blog published on this website, the comments made by the data subject are also stored and published, as well as information on the date of the commentary and on the user's (pseudonym) chosen by the data subject. In addition, the IP address assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) to the data subject is also logged. This storage of the IP address takes place for security reasons, and in case the data subject violates the rights of third parties, or posts illegal content through a given comment. The storage of these personal data is, therefore, in the own interest of the data controller, so that he can exculpate in the event of an infringement. This collected personal data will not be passed to third parties, unless such a transfer is required by law or serves the aim of the defense of the data controller.

8. Routine erasure and blocking of personal data

The data controller shall process and store the personal data of the data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of storage, or as far as this is granted by the European legislator or other legislators in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject to.
If the storage purpose is not applicable, or if a storage period prescribed by the European legislator or another competent legislator expires, the personal data are routinely blocked or erased in accordance with legal requirements.

9. Rights of the data subject:

  • the right to be informed about the collection and use of your personal data;
  • the right of access to your personal data and any supplementary information;
  • the right to have any errors in your personal data rectified;
  • the right to have your personal data erased;
  • the right to block or suppressing the processing of your personal data;
  • the right to move, copy or transfer your personal data from one IT environment to another;
  • the right to object to processing of your personal data in certain circumstances, and rights related to automated decision-making (i.e. where no humans are involved) and profiling (i.e. where certain personal data is processed to evaluate an individual).

10. Legal basis for the processing

Art. 6(1) lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. You may indicate your consent in a number of ways, including, as permitted by law, ticking a box (or equivalent action) to indicate your consent when (i) providing us with your Personal Data through our services or a form (including enrolling in Promotions); or (ii) registering or creating a member account with us.

11. The legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party

Where the processing of personal data is based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR our legitimate interest is to carry out our business in favor of the well-being of all our clients and users, employees and the shareholders.

12. Period for which the personal data will be stored

We will retain your Personal Data for as long as you are a member with us or as otherwise necessary to provide you the services. We will also retain your Personal Data as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements. Some data may also be stored longer than the stated retention period for the purposes of business continuity.
Where we no longer need to process your Personal Data for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy, we will delete your Personal Data from our systems.

Changes to our policy

This policy replaces all previous versions and is correct as of May 2018. We may change this privacy policy from time to time. We reserve the right to change the policy at any time. By continuing to access or use our services after those changes become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised privacy policy.
This Privacy Policy has been generated with the help of Privacy Policy Generator of the German Association for Data Protection and Port.im to ensure that we collect and manage your personal data transparently, fairly and securely.

How is this service different from other financial news aggregating sites?

We employ a very different approach to news aggregation. Instead of scrapping the internet and using manual curation, we gather stories directly from content publishers on Twitter, which means that you get the information much faster, and the coverage is comprehensive. Most content publishers tweet as soon as they release a new story, and we capture them all.
Our service is specifically tailored for investors and traders, and we want it to be easy for them to structure, personalise and consume the information.
Next time an influential investor such as Carl Icahn tweets, you'll get those stories at the top of your feeds!

Why can't I just get these financial news stories directly from Twitter?

Yes, you can, but we make it very convenient for you.
Twitter is a great service and has resulted in a paradigm shift in the way we break and consumer news. We are also thankful to them for allowing us to access tweets.
However, they at least at this point, do not seem to be tailoring their service towards investors and traders, and hence consumption of financial news may be difficult. Also, several people find using Twitter a bit tricky.
We allow users to create watchlists which can track several assets in one go, which we believe is valuable to you.

Is there a limit on the number of watchlists that I can create?

Yes, you could create a max of 5 watchlists. This limit has been based on our discussions with traders and investors.

Could you please add other indices tracker in your list of standard watchlists?

Yes, sure but as long as we can find quality news stories on Twitter for those indices. Please send us your request at [email protected]

I can't find assets that I trade or invest in on this site. Please could you add them?

We add assets to our coverage only after we believe that there are enough quality stories on Twitter. This usually tend to be highly traded assets. However, please send us a request at [email protected] and we will investigate whether we should add the asset.

Why do I see several unrelated stories in my feed?

We adopt several steps to make sure that you only get relevant quality stories but we have no control over what the authors publish. If you could click the 'irrelevant to topic' icon on the right of the story, we could filter stories from this author in the future. The more you use this service, the smarter the algorithm works. We would request you to have some patience, and help us improve the overall service.
