Privacy Policy

Falk AS (“Falk Global”, “we”, “us”, “our”) is a middle office and compliance service for asset managers, who want an effective outsourced solution that meets the highest standards of regulatory requirements and client expectations.

We take your privacy very seriously, and it’s our policy to respect your data and your choices regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.

Website visitors

As many other websites, Falk collects non-personally identifying information that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site and the date and time of each visitor request. Falk’s purpose in collecting this information is to better understand how our visitors use the website.

Falk also collects potentially personally-identifying information, like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for users leaving comments on our blogs. Blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Some users may interact with the Falk website in ways that may require us to gather personally-identifying information. The type of information will depend on the type of interaction, but in each case we only collect this information as far as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of your interaction with our website. We do not disclose this information other than as described below.

Aggregated Statistics

Falk may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to our website. For instance, we may monitor the popularity of individual pages on the website, or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. This information may be displayed publicly or provided to others. We use analytical software to help us understand this information.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Falk discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations that need to know the information in order to process it on our behalf to provide or improve the services available on our website, and that have agreed to not disclose it to others. Some of these employees, contractors and affiliated organisations may be located outside of your home country. By using the Falk website, you consent to the transfer of this information to them.

Falk Global will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than those described above, Falk only discloses this information in response to subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Falk believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Falk, third parties or the public.
Your information and the responsibility surrounding it may also be transferred to a third party as part of a sale of our assets or a merger of our company. By using our site, you acknowledge that such a transfer may occur, and that any acquirer of Falk may continue to use your personal information as described in this policy.


We collect the data visitors submit to our website in the comments, unless it is marked as spam, in which case it will be collected long enough to improve our service. We also collect the commenter’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.
