This Privacy & Cookie Policy only covers the WAY Group Limited websites and does not cover links within our sites to other websites.

We (WAY Group Limited, including WAY Investment Services Limited) receive personal information through our websites. You may, for example, be asked for personal information if you are an independent investment intermediary and want to take advantage of specific services we offer, such as subscribing to our publications or seminars, or making a product enquiry, or requesting a support service.

When you choose to provide us with your personal details, whether in writing or by telephone, facsimile, e-mail or via our websites, we only use the information to deliver the services you have requested.

The WAY Group Limited websites do not automatically capture or store personal information, other than logging your IP address and session information such as how long your visit lasted and the type of browser used. This is recognised by the web server and is only used for system administration and to provide statistics, which we use to evaluate how the sites are used. We use IP addresses to analyse trends, administer the websites and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
