Privacy & Cookies

The OpenGamma group of companies respects the privacy of our visitors and customers, and recognizes the need to protect personal information that you provide to us. We have therefore established this Privacy Policy to assist you to understand what information we collect and how that information is used when you visit our web site.

From time to time, we will review and may make updates to this Privacy Policy. We encourage you to check this page for any changes to the OpenGamma Privacy Policy; your continued use of this site after any change to this policy will constitute your acceptance of such changes.

We last updated our privacy policy on Wednesday, 6 November 2013.


Personal information is information that can be used to identify or contact a specific individual, such as a name, address, company affiliation, or email address.


We divide the personal information we collect into two categories: information you explicitly provide, and information that you casually provide.

On OpenGamma’s web sites we may ask for specific Personal Information from you, which will be used to contact you and customize the offerings that OpenGamma makes to you. We will only collect the Personal Information that you knowingly provide to us, and we will only do so when it helps us to tailor our offerings to your interests and request.

In addition, as you browse our web site, we may automatically collect information about your time on our site and the content that you access whilst browsing it. While we do not intend any of this information to be Personal Information, it may be possible to combine this information with other information, making it Personal Information. If we do so, passively collected information about your browsing of our web sites will be considered Personal Information.

Automatically collected information is analyzed to improve our web sites, and includes without limitation details such as the IP address assigned to you when you accessed our web sites, what pages you visited, how long you spent on each page, and how you found the OpenGamma web site. This information can be used to answer such questions as “How do people find out about OpenGamma products and services?” and “What are the most popular pages on the OpenGamma web site?”.


The OpenGamma web site does use “cookies” on its web sites. Cookies are identifiers that can be sent from a web site and placed on your hard drive by your browser, and sent back to OpenGamma when you browse our web site. You may elect not to accept cookies by instructing your browser not to accept cookies from OpenGamma web sites, and if you do so, you will still be able to browse our web sites. However, certain interactive functionality of our web sites may not be available if you do not accept cookies from OpenGamma.

Cookie information is used in much the same way as automatically collected information about your browsing of our web sites, and may be used to link together multiple visits you may make to our web sites. This information helps us answer questions such as “What product information is most of interest to regular visitors to our web site?” and “What types of offers do regular visitors to our web sites prefer?”.

Our site uses three types of cookies:

‘Analytical’ cookies allow us to recognize and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around the site when they’re using it. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example by making sure users are finding what they need easily.
‘Functional’ cookies allow us to remember choices you make, such as your log in details. We use these cookies to show you are logged in (where applicable) and display relevant confirmation pages when you interact with our site.
‘Third party’ cookies are set by external web sites whose services are used on this site. They allow you to share content onto social networks and comment on content on the site.
More information about these cookies is provided below.


These are the cookies that are set by this web site directly.

Google Analytics: We use Google Analytics to collect information about visitor behavior on our web site. Google Analytics stores information about what pages you visit, how long you are on the site, how you got here and what you click on. The Analytics data is collected via a JavaScript tag in the pages of our site and is not tied to personally identifiable information. We do not collect or store your personally identifiable information unless you knowingly provide it to us (see “What Personal Information does OpenGamma collect?“ above).

Functional cookies:

If you fill in a form on our website, and submit it to us, our web site sets a session cookie to allow us to display a confirmation page to you upon successful form submission. This cookie expires after 10 minutes.
If you register as a user on, our web site sets a cookie when you log in. The cookie’s contents are a token and your display name, encrypted. This is a session cookie (unless you specifically tick the ‘Remember me’ checkbox, in which case the cookie expires after one year).


These are cookies set on your machine by external websites whose services are used on this site. Cookies of this type are the sharing buttons across the site that allow visitors to share content onto social networks and comment on content on the site. Cookies are currently set by Disqus, LinkedIn, and Twitter. In order to connect our site to the relevant social networks and external sites, there are scripts from domains outside of our website. You should be aware that these sites are likely to be collecting information about what you are doing on the internet, including on this web site.

You should check the respective policies of each of these services to see how exactly they use your information and to find out how to opt out, or delete, such information.


In addition to using cookies and related technologies as described above, we also may permit certain third party companies to help us tailor advertising that we think may be of interest to users and to collect and use other data about user activities on our websites (e.g., to allow them to tailor ads on third party services). These companies may deliver ads that might also place cookies and otherwise track user behavior. These companies may use information about user behavior in order to provide customized advertisements across various services and products. In the course of providing these services, products or placing advertisements, these third party companies may place or recognize a unique cookie on your computer, and may record information to these cookies based upon your activities on any of our Sites and/or Services and on third party websites. Each of these companies uses this cookie information according to their own privacy and security policies. If you wish to not have this information used for the purpose of serving you targeted ads, you may opt-out as indicated in this Policy. Please note that opting-out from these companies’ use of data does not opt you out of being served advertising. You will continue to receive generic ads.

If you provide your email address to OpenGamma, we may use it to contact you directly regarding your interest in our company. For example, if you ask us for information on our products, we will email you with the requested information and may contact you to provide follow-on information.

Every email we send you will include a link that can be used to unsubscribe from the mailing list associated with that email, as well as a reference to the email address that was originally used to sign up.

We will never sell your email address or knowingly make it available to marketing services.


OpenGamma is committed to taking reasonable efforts to secure the Personal Information that you choose to provide. To protect the privacy of this information, OpenGamma and its partners employ industry-standard controls including physical access controls and Internet firewalls. We may store any information collected in a number of jurisdictions, including the United States of America and various member states of the European Union.


OpenGamma will only use your Personal Information within the OpenGamma group of companies, and will not divulge your Personal Information except as set forth in this Privacy Policy. You understand and agree that in order to help you engage with OpenGamma, we may share your Personal Information with employees or contractors of OpenGamma subsidiaries throughout the world, who will all be bound by this Privacy Policy. Specifically, automatically collected information may be collected, stored, and processed by third-party firms (such as through the Google Analytics program).

We will not sell your Personal Information to any non-affiliated third party.

If you are entering into a business relationship with OpenGamma, and that business relationship involves another vendor of technology or services, you understand that it may be necessary for OpenGamma to share certain details with that third party in order to improve the service offerings we make to you, and you hereby give us permission to do so. Any sharing that we do will be, to the best of our abilities, to your benefit, and partners will be bound by this Privacy Policy.

If we are required by a law enforcement or other government official to divulge your Personal Information we will do so, and you expressly authorize us to do so. Additionally, we may disclose your Personal Information if we have a good faith belief that disclosure is necessary to protect the health, safety, or rights of a third party.


OpenGamma web sites may link to web sites hosted by other firms for your convenience and information. If you visit those web sites, the Privacy Policy of the firms hosting those web sites will apply.

We do not endorse or make any representations about Third-Party web sites, nor can we control how Personal Information you provide to those web sites will be used.


If you have any questions or concerns regarding this Privacy Policy, or you believe that the privacy of Personal Information you have provided to OpenGamma has not been respected or maintained according to this policy, you may submit a complaint in writing to the attention of OpenGamma’s Office of the General Counsel, International House, 24 Holborn Viaduct, London, EC1A 2BN, United Kingdom.
