What we use your information for
Our legitimate interest
We may use your personal information to tell you about relevant products and offers. The personal information we have for you is made up of what you tell us, and data we collect when you use our services.
We use this to form a view on what we think you may want or need, or what may be of interest to you.
We can only use your personal information to send you marketing messages if we either have your consent or a ‘legitimate interest’
You can ask us to stop sending you marketing messages by contacting us on email@example.com at any time, or clicking on the unsubscribe link that appears on every email.
Sending data outside the EEA
When we transfer information outside the EEA we make sure that it is protected in the same ways as if it was being used in the EEA. We only transfer it to organisations that are part of the Privacy Shield. This is a framework that sets privacy standards for data sent between the US and EU countries. It makes sure those standards are similar to what is used within the EEA.
Who we share your personal information with
We share your personal information with agents and advisers who we use to help run your accounts and services, collect what you owe, and explore new ways of doing business.
If you choose not to give personal information
We may need to collect personal information by law or under the terms of a contract we have with you.
If you choose not to give us this personal information it may delay or prevent us from meeting our obligations or delivering a product or service. It may also mean that we cannot perform services needed to run your account.
How long will your information be held?
We will keep your personal information until you request otherwise.
We may keep your data for up to 7 years afterwards for one of these reasons:
- To respond to any questions or complaints
- To show we treated you fairly
- To maintain records according to rules that apply to us
We may keep your data for longer than 7 years if we cannot delete it for legal, regulatory or technical reasons.
What are your rights?
You have the right to access your personal information, to object to the processing of your personal information, to rectify, to erase, to restrict and to ‘port’ (ask for the transfer of your personal information in an easy to use format to another organisation). Any requests or objections should be made in writing to:
