The data privacy law allows this as part of our legitimate interest in understanding our customers and providing the highest levels of service.

Your personal data will be treated as being strictly confidential. We may share your personal data with the parties set out below for the purposes set out in this Policy:

  • A member of our group;
  • Companies that provide services to help us confirm your identity, meet our compliance and regulatory obligations, and to detect and prevent fraud or other financial crime;
  • Our professional advisors such as auditors, accountants and lawyers, etc.;
  • Companies that provide services to help us with our business activities, such as data storage, maintenance services, database management, web analytics and payment processing;

We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes and only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.

Where personal data relating to European based data subjects is shared with a third party located in a non-EU country that has not received an adequacy decision by the European Commission, we rely on appropriate safeguards. We never share your data with third parties for their own purposes

Where your data may be processed ?

Sometimes we will need to share your data with third-parties and suppliers outside the European Economic Area (EEA), such as the United States.

Protecting your data outside the EEA

The EEA includes all EU Member countries as well as Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway. We may transfer personal data that we collect from you to third-party data processors in countries that are outside the EEA. If we do this, we have procedures in place to ensure your data receives the same protection as if it were being processed inside the EEA, for example our contracts with third-parties stipulate the standards they must follow at all times.

HOW LONG DO WE KEEP YOUR PERSONAL DATA?

We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements, after which time it will be destroyed securely if it is no longer needed for the lawful purposes for which it was obtained.

In some limited cases, it may be necessary to retain your personal data for longer if we need to hold it for liability claim purposes (e.g. if any complaints were to be made to an ombudsman service), and for example to hold and provide to a regulatory body.

If you consent to receive marketing from us, any information we use for this purpose will be held by us until such time as you notify us that you no longer wish to receive marketing information from us.

  • to object to the processing of your personal data with regards to Direct Marketing;

We must then do so unless we believe we have a legitimate overriding reason to continue processing your personal data. For example, regulatory requirement.
