Internet provides anybody in just a few mouse-clicks with a wealth of information. You can get the latest news, order products and services, and communicate in many different ways with others around the globe. However, all these online activities do raise new challenges, such as security issues, copyright infringement, online fraud, and misuse of information and private data. Protecting the individual's privacy on the Internet is crucial to any online business and the move toward a trustworthy Internet economy. 1stmarkets, as an international organization, has created this privacy statement to demonstrate our firm commitment to the individual's right to privacy. But most importantly, 1stmarkets values having a relationship with our customers that is founded on trust. This is crucial to any trustworthy business relationship. Any feedback you'd like to provide to help us better meet your expectations is welcomed.
