PRIVACY & DATA SECURITY
quality reference data is a major priority at FBDC. The quality of our reports
depends to a large degree on the quality of our database. We go to great
lengths to ensure that all data used for the production of the FBDC Gold and
BENCHMARK REPORT is subjected to a rigorous series of proprietary tests
and filters. Data that meets our strict standards is then included in one of
three datasets, each with increasing levels of integrity. Data that fails our
testing is excluded from the FBDC reference database. Our commitment to
ensuring data integrity is a key reason why the FBDC Gold and BENCHMARK
REPORT are unsurpassed for providing accurate, market-based price analysis
that you can rely on.
Your data reveals much about the nature of your supply base and associated procurement costs
and thus can be a key differentiator in your ability to compete in a challenging market. Maintaining
the confidentiality of our clients’ data is something we take very seriously at FBDC.
We are committed to ensuring a high degree of data integrity and we have developed equally strict
practices with respect to the handling of customer data.
No customer data is ever released, revealed or sold. Reports cannot be reverse-engineered to derive confidential data. Customer names are never revealed in any of our promotional materials without consent. The data we receive is used only in aggregate form for future reports.
Use of FBDC requires mutual agreement to a set of terms and conditions, and is a legally binding
agreement protecting our customers’ confidentiality.
Customer data and reports can be transferred several ways to ensure security and confidentiality.
Uploading customer data through the FBDC website – the site is VeriSign authenticated and fully
HTTPS compliant. Uploading data and delivery of customer reports through our secure, password
protected FTP site.
