How long will personal data be used for?
We will only retain 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.
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and the Data subject’s data, the purposes for which we process the data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
Nevertheless by law we have to keep basic information about our customers (including Contact, Identity, Financial and Transaction Data) for [six] years after they cease being customers for [tax] purposes.]
In some circumstances we may anonymise the Data Subject’s date (so that it can no longer be associated with them) for research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to the Data subject.
The Firm will protect the data we collect in the following ways:
The Data Subject’s data will not be transferred outside the European Economic Area [EEA] without the explicit consent of the Data Subject;
The Firm has in place general recognised standards of technology including operational security including, but not limited to, data encryption thereby enabling the protection of relevant data from misuse, loss, damage, alteration, destruction or unauthorised access.
