Bloomberg and the parties with whom we work (e.g., service providers, business partners, advertisers, and advertising servers) may place, view, and/or use “cookies,” Web server logs, Web beacons, or other electronic tools to collect statistical and other information about your use of this Site and other websites.

Most browsers are set to accept cookies by default. If you prefer, you can usually set your browser to disable cookies, or to alert you when cookies are being sent. Likewise, most mobile devices allow you to disable the ability for geo-location information to be collected from your mobile device. The help function on most browsers and mobile devices contains instructions on how to set your browser to notify you before accepting cookies, disable cookies entirely, or disable the collection of geo-location data. You need to set each browser, on each device you use to surf the Web. Thus, if you use multiple browsers (e.g., Safari, Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc.), you should repeat this procedure with each one. Similarly, if you connect to the Web from multiple devices (e.g., work and home), you need to set each browser on each device. However, if you disable cookies or refuse to accept a request to place a cookie, it is possible that some parts of this Site, such as the polls, surveys, contests, and product sales, and certain areas of this Site for which you need to log in, will not function properly.

Our Intra-Group Personal Data Protection Statement (below) provides additional information about the transfer of personal information from the EU, EEA, and Switzerland to the United States.
Bloomberg may provide links or access to third-party web sites or other digital properties, including social networking web sites. Since we do not control third-party digital properties and are not responsible for any information you may provide while on such digital properties, we encourage you to read the privacy policies on those digital properties before providing any of your information on such digital properties.
Bloomberg will not disclose client data (which may include personal information, together “client data”) in response to requests from law enforcement, governmental, or regulatory agencies except where required to do so by law (for example, in response to valid and properly-served legal process such as a subpoena or search warrant). Bloomberg will attempt to notify its client prior to disclosing client data unless: (1) prohibited by applicable law from doing so, or (2) there are clear indications of unlawful conduct in connection with the client’s use of Bloomberg services. Notwithstanding any of the foregoing, Bloomberg reserves the right to respond to urgent law enforcement requests if Bloomberg believes in good faith that an emergency involving imminent danger of death or serious physical injury justifies such disclosure.

Bloomberg L.P. and its affiliates (“Bloomberg”) are committed to compliance with their privacy obligations in the United States and throughout the world. This Intra-Group Personal Data Protection Statement (“Statement”) sets out the privacy principles Bloomberg follows with respect to personal information that it transfers from the European Union, European Economic Area, and Switzerland (collectively, “EU”) to the United States (“U.S.”).
The relevant Bloomberg group companies have entered into an Intra-Group Personal Data Protection Agreement (“IGA”) in order to ensure that responsibility for personal information transferred from the EU to the U.S. is clearly identified. The parties to the IGA are considered as data controllers, or data controller and data processor under applicable law.
As relevant Bloomberg companies are located in the U.S., the group companies involved in the processing shall be known as a Data Exporter and a Data Importer respectively, although there may be more than one company involved in the processing of personal information.
The IGA incorporates unchanged EU Commission Standard Contractual Clauses for controller to controller, and controller to processor transfers, and the relevant Data Exporter and Data Importer will abide by these EU Commission Standard Contractual Clauses where personal information is transferred to or accessed from Bloomberg group companies in the U.S.
Questions or comments regarding this Statement should be submitted to Bloomberg’s privacy director at the following address:
