Provided information 

While using our website, we may ask you to provide us with certain personally  identifiable information (“personal data”). Personally identifiable information  may include, but is not limited to: Email Address, Contact Information,  Cookies and Usage Data. 

Sources of information

We may be given or obtain personal information from a number of sources,  such as: 

  • Information you give us about yourself 
  • Information you give us about others 
  • Information others give us about you to allow us to do our work 

Why do we need personal information? 

The main reason for asking you to provide us with or give us permission to  obtain your personal data from other sources, is to allow us to run our business  and enable us to carry out our contractual obligations to others. 

The following are some examples of what we may use your information for: 

  • Establishing your identity 
  • Requesting and obtaining advice from third parties;  
  • Responding to complaints or allegations involving us 
  • Fulfilling statutory obligations 

Who can access personal information? 

Our data protection regime has been established to ensure secure and lawful  processing of your personal data. We will not sell or rent your information to  any other person or organisation or share your information with third parties  for marketing purposes. 

As a general rule, we will only use your information within 235MPL, but in  running our business (whether directly or in the administration of our systems),  we may need to disclose some information to third parties e.g. to: 

  • Contracted suppliers, such as information technology providers and  services 
  • Providers of identity verification 
  • Statutory bodies or actors involved in law enforcement or regulation e.g.  for the prevention of financial crime and terrorism, where there is an  emergency and we think you or others are at risk. 

In the event that any of your information is shared with third parties, we will  require them to maintain strict confidentiality, to operate according to our  instructions where appropriate and not to use your personal information for  their own purposes, unless you have expressly consented to them doing so. 

Some uses of your personal data may require your specific consent, in particular  if we are processing special category or sensitive personal data. If so, we will contact you separately to ask for your consent, which you will be free to  withdraw at any time. 

How do we protect your personal data? 

We recognise that your information is valuable and we will take all reasonable  steps to protect it while it is in our care. 

We have systems in place to protect personally identifiable data from loss,  misuse, alteration or destruction. We also impose confidentiality obligations on  internal and external parties to protect the confidentiality of all personal  information and to ensure compliance with data protection laws. 

We employ computer and digital data safeguards such as firewalls and data  encryption and we enforce physical access controls to our offices and files to  keep data safe. 

How long will we keep information for? 

Your personal information will be retained, in computer and/or manual files,  for as long as necessary to fulfil the purpose for which the information was  collected; or as required by law; or as long as detailed in any contract you may  have with us (of which this privacy statement may form part). e.g. 

  • As long as necessary to carry out our contractual obligations to you;
  • For a minimum of 7 years from the conclusion of a contractual relationship,  to bring or defend complaints or claims 

What are your rights?
