This GDPR Privacy Policy applies to all personal data we process in the context of the activities of our offices and other establishments in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Switzerland and any office or establishment we may set up in the European Economic Area. It also applies should we intentionally market our products to you as an individual if you are habitually located in the UK or EU. Where it applies, the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) sets out rules and gives you rights regarding how we process *your personal data* – we define these expressions below but, broadly, it means how we handle any personal information about you from which you can be identified.

Under the GDPR, we are a data controller of this personal data. For this purpose, “we” is one or more of the following, as appropriate:

Retention of your personal data

Your personal data will be stored securely and confidentially. We will retain your personal data only for the period that is ‎proportionate for us to do so in relation to the purposes of the processing. The precise period will depend on the purpose for which we hold your information. Further, as a regulated institution, there are laws and regulations that apply to us which set minimum periods for data retention. The criteria that we use to determine how long we keep your PI include:

  • A legal or regulatory obligation (We will keep the information for at least as long as is required to comply with that obligation)
  • To provide a product or service (we will keep the information for at least as long as we provide the product or service, and for a number of years after expiration of the policy for the handling of any potential related claims)
  • The circumstances, nature, or the type of product or service provided to you
  • The circumstances, nature, or type of relationship we have with you
