How we will use your personal information

We only obtain, use and keep personal information where we need it for a specific purpose. We set out in the table below the ways in which we plan to use your personal information. We are only able to use your personal information if we have a proper legal reason or basis for doing so. This is called a legal basis and the regulations require that we have a legal basis so that your privacy is protected. Most commonly we will use your information in the following ways:

  • We have a contract with you. For example, as a client of ours.
  • We have a legal obligation. We need to use your personal information to comply with laws that assist in the prevention of financial crime and to comply with regulatory obligations. For example this might include confirming your identity and source of wealth, as well as ensuring we provide you with necessary information so you understand the risk of the financial services we can provide.
  • We, or a third party, have a legitimate interest in processing the information and your interests and fundamental right do not override those interests. For example, processing your information to source deals.

Sending your information outside of the EEA

The regulations which have been put in place to protect your privacy apply throughout the EEA.

This means that any country within the EEA must meet the same privacy standards as the United Kingdom. All the personal information that we hold about you will be processed in the EEA.

Storing your information

The period for which we will retain personal information will vary depending on the purposes that it was collected for, as well as the requirements of any applicable law or regulation. When we decide how long we will retain your personal information, we will take into account the amount, nature, sensitivity of your information and how we want to use it as well as the potential risk of harm being caused from unauthorised use or disclosure. We review our retention periods for personal information on a regular basis and will ensure all records are safely destroyed if we no longer need to retain them or you have contacted us to request so.
