IHS Markit Privacy Policy

IHS Markit Ltd. and its subsidiaries and affiliates (collectively "IHS Markit," "us," "we," or "our") are committed to protecting your privacy and providing you with a positive experience while using our websites, products, or services ("Platform").

IHS Markit reserves the right, at any time, to modify this Privacy Policy. If we make revisions that change the way we collect, use, or share personal information, we will post those changes in this Privacy Policy. If we make material changes to our Privacy Policy, we may also notify you by other means prior to the changes taking effect, such as by posting a notice on our Platform or sending you a notification. You should review this Privacy Policy periodically so that you keep up to date on our most current policies and practices. We will note the effective date of the latest version of our Privacy Policy at the end of this Privacy Policy.

For IHS Markit’s advertising-related policies and consumer opt-out procedures, please see the Advertising Privacy Policy.

The IHS Markit automotive business collects and compiles motor vehicle registration and title information to provide products and services to authorized entities pursuant to 18 U.S.C A. §2721 and similar state laws governing the use of such information. Consumer information from motor vehicle records is used in compliance with the governing laws and regulations and thus not used by IHS Markit or provided to other entities by IHS Markit for direct marketing purposes. To access or correct your motor vehicle registration and/or title information, contact your state's department of motor vehicles or other state agency that processes motor vehicle titles and registration. The American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators maintains links to state motor vehicle agency websites, organized by AAMVA regions.

1. Scope

This Policy applies to IHS Markit’s Platform and provides you with guidance on your rights and obligations in relation to your personal information.

IHS Markit's Privacy Policy (the "Privacy Policy") establishes and communicates the key principles that IHS Markit follows in protecting the personal information that we collect. Please note that some privacy rights and obligations may differ in certain locations based on local law, in which case IHS Markit will comply with the local legal requirements. To the extent a notice provided at the time of collection from a website or specific product conflicts with this Privacy Policy, such specific notice or supplemental privacy statement will control.

2. Collection of Personal Information

"Personal information" is any information that can be used to identify an individual or device, and may include things such as your name, physical address, email address, phone number, login information, marketing preferences, company affiliation, geographic location, or payment card information. IHS Markit may collect personal information that is necessary for legitimate business purposes, which will be disclosed to you at the time of collection. IHS Markit will use this information for the purposes for which it was collected. IHS Markit may also collect personal information from trusted third-party sources and engage third parties to collect personal information to assist us.

One of the most common methods of collecting personal information is during the online form submission or registration process, including where a website user is requesting a free trial or a courtesy newsletter, registering for an event, or responding to similar offers such as sample reports, white papers, or further product information.

In some instances, IHS Markit and the third parties we engage may automatically collect and aggregate data using cookies, weblogs, web beacons, and other similar applications. This information is used to better understand and improve the usability, performance, and effectiveness of our Platform and to help us tailor content or offers for you. Please read Section 8 (Cookies) below for more information.

3. Purpose and Use of Personal Information

IHS Markit may use your personal information for operational, legal, administrative, and other legitimate purposes permitted by applicable law. Some of the ways we may use personal information include:

  • Providing you with requested products or services.
  • Providing you with information regarding similar products or events.
  • Analyzing and monitoring extent of use.
  • Providing customized product and service information.
  • Allowing users to participate voluntarily in mailings or other events.
  • Providing product service updates, information, and alerts.
  • Sending communications, including for marketing or other customer satisfaction purposes.
  • Order processing and to provide transaction documents.
  • To contact users for information verification purposes.
  • Analyzing and monitoring extent of use and enhancing IHS Markit’s Platform.
  • Conducting due diligence activities for financial institutions and other regulated companies.

4. Your Rights

We strive to make sure that our information is reliable, accurate, and up-to-date. While personal information is maintained by IHS Markit, individuals in certain jurisdictions will have rights over how their personal information is processed. To find out what rights apply in your jurisdiction, please visit Section 11 (Additional Information for Certain Jurisdictions).
To make a request regarding your personal information, please complete the form found on our Privacy Request Page.


Upon receipt of a valid request made through our Privacy Request Page, we will take the necessary steps to assess and respond. Please be aware that in order to accommodate some requests, we must verify your identity before we can respond to a privacy request and this may require you to provide photographic identity information to IHS Markit. Because your personal information—for example, your email address—is often required to access or use IHS Markit platforms and technologies, we retain personal information as long as your account is active. You may have the opportunity to correct, update, or modify this information by logging into your account and updating your information online. Please note that some information may be retained in our systems, where permitted by law, even after you request deletion.

5. Sharing Personal Information

To support the purposes listed in Section 3 (Purpose and Use of Personal Information), IHS Markit may share or disclose personal information to:

  • IHS Markit's parent, subsidiary, affiliates, and other related companies for the purposes listed in Section 3 (Purpose and Use of Personal Information).
  • The organization that arranges your access to our products or services (if that is not you) to fulfill its contractual obligations and to provide our products and services.
  • Service providers and business partners for the purposes of operating our business, delivering, improving, and customizing our products or services, sending marketing and communications related to our business, payment processing, and for other legitimate purposes permitted by applicable law or otherwise with your consent.

Personal information handled by these service providers is subject to their terms of use and privacy policies. Please review the service provider’s terms of use and privacy policies to better understand how they manage your personal information. IHS Markit is responsible for the processing of personal information it receives under the Privacy Shield Framework and subsequently transfers to a third party acting as an agent on its behalf. IHS Markit complies with the Privacy Shield Principles for all onward transfers of personal information from the EU, including the onward transfer liability provisions.

There may also be instances when IHS Markit may disclose your personal information without providing you with a choice in order to:

  • Honor a request that you have made through the products or services.
  • Comply with the law or in response to a court order, government request, or other legal process.
  • Protect the interests, rights, safety, or property of IHS Markit or others.
  • Protect against fraud or for risk management purposes.
  • Respond to adverse third parties (i.e., adverse parties and their counsel and other agents) in the context of litigation.

In addition, if IHS Markit sells all or part of its business or makes a sale or transfer of assets or is otherwise involved in a merger or business transfer, you acknowledge that IHS Markit may transfer your personal information to a third party as part of that transaction.

In all cases IHS Markit requires all unaffiliated third parties to treat personal information as confidential. IHS Markit will not provide personal information to third parties for their own marketing purposes without your consent.

If you participate in a discussion forum, chat room, or provide comments related to IHS Markit on a social media or other public platform, you should be aware that the information you provide there (i.e., your public profile) will be made broadly available to others, and could be used to contact you, send you unsolicited messages, or for purposes neither IHS Markit nor you have control over. Also, please recognize that social media forums and chat rooms not controlled by IHS Markit may have additional rules and conditions. IHS Markit is not responsible for the personal information or any other information you choose to submit on these forums that are not IHS Markit controlled.

The Platform may offer you the ability to share personal information through a social networking site (e.g., Facebook, Twitter), using integrated tools (e.g., Facebook “Like” button, or Twitter “Tweet” button). The use of such integrated tools enables you to share personal information about yourself with other individuals or the public, depending on the settings that you have established with such social networking site. For more information about the purpose and scope of data collection and use in connection with such social networking site or a site’s integrated tools, please visit the privacy policies of the entities that provide these social networking sites.

6. Security of Personal Information

IHS Markit has physical, administrative, and technical safeguards in place to help protect the personal information IHS Markit collects. While there is no such thing as perfect security on the Internet, we will take reasonable and appropriate steps to ensure the safety of your personal information.

7. Retention of Personal Information

IHS Markit will retain your personal information as needed to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected. We will retain and use your personal information as necessary to comply with our business requirements, legal obligations, resolve disputes, protect our assets, and enforce our agreements.

8. Cookies we use and their purpose

We use four types of Cookies - ‘Strictly Necessary’, ‘Performance’, ‘Functional’ and ‘Targeted Advertising’. A detailed explanation of the types of Cookie and the purposes for which we use them is found within the IHS Markit Cookie Policy. However, if you are just looking for a summary, we use strictly necessary cookies to make our site work. We also like to set optional performance, functional, and advertising cookies to help us improve the site and give you a bespoke experience so it works better for you.

9. Cross Border Transfer of Personal Information

As a global organization, we may transfer your personal information to IHS Markit affiliates, agents, contractors, service providers, and to third parties in various countries and jurisdictions around the world. By using our websites or products, or providing any personal information to us, where applicable law permits, you acknowledge the transfer, processing, and storage of such information outside of your country of residence where data protection standards may be different.


10. Prospective Employee and Employee Information

If you submit an application for employment to or are currently an employee of IHS Markit, IHS Markit is authorized to collect the information in any form it obtains through your application for employment or continued employment with IHS Markit, and your submission of employee related documents, including but not limited to the personal information that you submit in connection with your employment or intended employment (collectively "Employee Information"). To support our global recruitment activities, IHS Markit has published a Recruitment Privacy Notice. This notice should be read in conjunction with this section of the IHS Markit Privacy Policy and we recommend that prospective candidates review this notice when considering a career at IHS Markit.

Examples of Employee Information collected in connection with your employment or application for employment includes but is not limited to your name, date of birth, government issued identification (passport, social security number, driver’s license number), banking information, marital status, health information, benefit information, title, employment history, education, job qualifications, and other relevant employee personal information. We also collect some of this information about your dependents when you provide it to us. By providing personal information about family members or other individuals, you represent that you have their consent to provide this information to us for the purposes set forth in this Privacy Policy.

IHS Markit will collect, use, store and retain, and secure your social security number in accordance with this Privacy Policy and the Recruitment Privacy Notice. IHS Markit will not intentionally communicate or make available, in any manner, your social security number to the general public. IHS Markit will not print your social security number on any card required for you to access colleague member services provided by IHS Markit. IHS Markit will not require you to transmit your social security number over the Internet, unless the connection is secure or the social security number is encrypted. IHS Markit will not print your social security number on any materials that are mailed to you, unless state or federal law requires or permits the social security number to be on the document to be mailed.

In accordance with applicable law, IHS Markit may use Employee Information to evaluate applications for employment, manage work-related aspects of the employee-employer relationship (e.g., training, payroll, benefits, travel, reimbursement expenses, performance appraisals, succession planning, team member health and safety), investigate and respond to any claims related to your employment, and comply with applicable laws and regulations. Your professional information, such as your name, job title, professional photo, area of expertise, reporting line, and work experience may be shared with clients or potential clients in connection with your job responsibilities. Your professional information may also be shared through internal resources accessible to IHS Markit colleagues, such as organizational charts and other documents available on IHS Markit’s secure intranet. IHS Markit will not use your Employee Information to market to you directly or through a third party service provider, unless you specifically consent to such use.

IHS Markit shares your Employee Information with third parties who provide outsourced human resource functions to us and are required to protect your Employee Information. IHS Markit may disclose your Employee Information if required or permitted to do so by law (such as when part of a governmental agency action or litigation), governmental or quasi-governmental requests, or a regulatory organization, or to relevant third parties such as site technicians, brokers, auditors, lawyers, or professional advisors. In the event that IHS Markit considers it necessary or where required by law to disclose Employee Information in certain situations where the health, safety, or wellbeing of a team member is at imminent risk, we may share your Employee Information with our outside lawyers, law enforcement or others who are legally authorized. As IHS Markit continues to develop our business, we may buy or sell assets. In the unlikely event that IHS Markit or substantially all of our assets are acquired, Employee Information may be one of the transferred assets.

Employee Information may be stored in hard copy or electronic format within your branch office or in the cloud in the United States or other countries where IHS Markit, its affiliates, agents, or contractors conduct business. Your Employee Information may be transferred into our human resources systems and used to manage your employment, may become part of your personnel file, and may be used for other work-related purposes. Your Employee Information will be kept for as long as is legally required, and in some instances longer depending upon the needs of the organization and industry practices.

IHS Markit commits to cooperate with EU and UK data protection authorities and the Swiss Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner and comply with advice given by such authorities with regard to human resources data transferred from the EU, UK, and Switzerland in the context of the employment relationship. If you have any complaints regarding our compliance with this Privacy Policy, you should first contact us using the form found on our Privacy Request Page. Alternatively, you can write to us at the address listed below under Section 14 (Contact Information). If you are a citizen of the European Union and you have an unresolved concern regarding your Employee Information that we have not addressed satisfactorily, please contact your local data protection authority.


12. Other Contractual Relationships

If you enter into a separate contractual relationship with IHS Markit which requires, or contemplates, collecting, using, or sharing information about you in a manner that is different than that which is described in this Privacy Policy, the terms of that agreement will apply.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to sites or applications offered by other companies or individuals, including third party products and services, that may be displayed as content in a search on our website.
