- Only subsidiaries that have an externally observable network footprint appear in the platform; companies that do not have a network footprint, are not represented in the Ratings Tree.
- Many companies can have wholly owned legal entities and subsidiaries that do not have a network footprint, which do not appear in the platform.
A subsidiary is classified as a separate company when it meets the following criteria:
- The company has its own unique, non-redirecting domain. If the domain of the subsidiary redirects to the parent’s domain, it means that the subsidiary does not have its own domain. The redirecting domain is added for the parent as a secondary domain.
- The company is 100% wholly owned by the parent company; only wholly owned relationships are captured in our databases as subsidiary relationships. By request, companies that are ≥50.1% owned can be considered if it can be verified via a public financial statement. No communication from the rest of the organization is required. See the acceptable accounting standards.
Once the hierarchy has been established, relevant CIDR blocks are assigned to their respective companies in the Ratings Tree.
