The purpose of this privacy policy is to outline how MT4i deals with any Personal Data you provide to MT4i while visiting the Website (“Privacy Policy”). Personal Data is only collected from you if you voluntarily submit it to MT4i or if it is collected as otherwise described in this Privacy Policy. By accessing the Website, you consent to MT4i collecting, maintaining, using and disclosing your Personal Data in accordance with this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree this Privacy Policy you should not use the Website. MT4i is not responsible for the content or the privacy policies of other websites that may be connected or linked to this Website.

Data collected

Registration: When you register with MT4i, MT4i asks for your email address. MT4i, in common with most websites, also logs the IP address of all requests to MT4i’s servers.

Other Services: MT4i may also ask for additional information when providing you with other optional services. If you don't want to give MT4i the information requested, you don't have to, but you may not then be able to take advantage of such offerings. On occasion, MT4i may also ask you, on a voluntary basis, for other Personal Data in connection with competitions, surveys, or other promotional offers running on the Website. Whether you give that information or not is entirely your choice.

Information MT4i Automatically Tracks: While on the Website, MT4i automatically logs certain information about how you're using this Website. This information may include the URL that you just came from, your IP address and the pages you visit while on the Website.


If your browser is set up to accept them, MT4i also uses a feature known as a "cookie." Cookies contain bits of information that web sites transfer to your computer's hard drive for record keeping purposes. Cookies can make the web more useful by storing information about your preferences on a particular site such as the MT4i Website. Only anonymous, non-personally identifiable data is collected, and it cannot, by itself or in combination, be tracked to a specific individual.

MT4i uses cookies to automatically access your previously stored account information and deliver more personalised services and to estimate MT4i’s audience size and usage patterns. MT4i may place a pixel on pages on the Website, or those of MT4i’s advertisers and partners. This enables MT4i to record in its server logs that a specific user id has visited a particular page. This data allows MT4i to analyse and determine its audience's behavioural characteristics, which helps MT4i to optimise the Website, advertisement placement, and marketing focus.

Advertising networks that serve ads onto the MT4i Website may also use cookies. Please note that MT4i neither controls nor has access to those cookies and these advertisers' uses of cookies are subject to their own privacy policies and not MT4i’s.

Most browsers are set up to accept cookies, but you can configure your browser to refuse cookies or to notify you when you've received one. If you reject cookies, though, you will not be able to use certain features of the Website such as remembering your log in details or customising your portfolio. For more on managing cookies, MT4i encourages you to read this guide about what you can do:

Where your information is stored

The information outlined above, including any Personal Data, may from time to time be transferred to someone who provides a service to MT4i in other countries and it may be processed and stored outside of the European Economic Area (EEA) including in the United States of America. By using the Website, you consent to this possible transfer outside the EEA. Should this occur, MT4i will take steps to ensure that your information is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

MT4i's use of your information

More Customised Service: MT4i collects personal information to provide you with the best and most personalised Web experience possible and to provide MT4i’s advertisers with an efficient means to reach the right audience. In short, by knowing a little about you, MT4i can deliver more relevant content and advertisements to you while on this Website and thus, provide you with a more efficient, customised and seamless experience when using MT4i’s service.

Internal Research: Cookies and the other information that MT4i automatically tracks are used to help MT4i better understand how MT4i’s audience uses this Website as well as for internal research on users' demographics and interests. Each browser accessing the Website is given a unique cookie which is then used to determine usage patterns, and to help in targeting content and ads based on user interests.

To Confirm Your Registration and Contact You: Once you've registered, MT4i will send you a confirmation email acknowledging your new account to the address that you supplied. MT4i may subsequently email you about its various products and services, or other products and services MT4i feels may interest you. If you would rather not receive these subsequent communications, let MT4i know on

Information sharing and disclosure

Except as described below, MT4i does not give, rent, lend, sell or disclose individual information to any third party.

Current or Prospective Advertisers/Partners: MT4i only provides aggregate, non-identifiable information to MT4i’s current and prospective advertisers and business partners. For example, MT4i might tell advertisers that there are 25,000 registered users in Shanghai, but MT4i won't tell them any personal information.

Third Party Service Providers: MT4i may employ the services of third party providers to aid MT4i in certain aspects of MT4i’s operations (such as the distribution of MT4i’s email products or conducting a survey). Depending on the services performed, some of these providers may be provided with user information. These contractors would be subject to confidentiality agreements which limit their use and disclosure of all information they obtain through their relationship with MT4i to MT4i related business only, consistent with this Privacy Policy.

Legal Requests: MT4i may disclose your personally identifiable information to protect the rights and property of MT4i as well as to comply with any applicable law or valid legal process. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Requests by Government Agencies: MT4i will disclose any information MT4i has in its possession to law enforcement or government officials in response to any inquiry or investigation or if in MT4i’s sole discretion, MT4i believes it is necessary or appropriate in connection with any investigation or activity that is or may be illegal or may expose MT4i or you to legal liability.
  • Disclosures MT4i is legally required or entitled to make under any enactment, rule of law or by the order of a court.

Forum: On any forum MT4i may operate (and anywhere else on the Website), you are publicly identified by your user or screen name. If you choose your full name as your username, you have voluntarily disclosed that information to anyone reading the Website. Similarly, any information you provide in your public profile is for public consumption. The same is true for any personal identifiable information (such as an email address) you include in any forum or related posts.

Sale of Business: MT4i reserves the right to disclose or transfer information (including your Personal Data) to a third party in the event of, or in connection with the negotiations of, a sale, merger, liquidation, receivership or transfer of all or substantially all of the assets of MT4i provided that the third party agrees to adhere to the terms of this Privacy Policy and provided that the third party only uses your Personal Data for the purposes that you provided it to MT4i or as otherwise authorised in this Privacy Policy. You will be notified in the event of any such transfer and you will be afforded an opportunity to opt-out.


MT4i is committed to protecting your personal information. All information that you provide to MT4i is stored on MT4i’s secure servers or otherwise as referred to in this Privacy Policy. Access to personalised areas of the Website is password-protected for your privacy and security and you have the option of protecting certain data by using a personalised PIN. While MT4i will seek to protect your personal information, due to the nature of the internet, MT4i cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to MT4i, and you do so at your own risk. You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and/or any account information. If you need to change your password, please follow the steps set out on the Website.
