We will share your details with third parties instructed by us in accordance with your instructions to enable us to fulfil our contractual obligations to you and/or your clients in the course of business. These include:
- Our carefully selected service providers who provide IT and system administration services to enable us to communicate effectively with you, provide services to you, and to give you access and use of the Secure Client Area (Portals);

We will not sell your information.

We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and, in the event of a breach, will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
- Storage and retention of your personal data
We retain your personal data in line with our internal retention policies and guidelines. These have been developed to ensure our compliance with regulatory obligations and professional practice. The time periods vary depending on the particular circumstances.
We will not store your information for longer than is reasonably necessary or required by law, and/or as needed for the duration of our contractual relationship.
- Sending your information outside of the UK
Your information will be predominantly processed in the UK. If your information is transferred outside the UK or the EEA you can expect a similar degree of protection in respect of your information as provided by processing in the UK.
- Your information rights
Data Protection Legislation gives your clients the right to access information held about them.
With respect to your clients we will, as you are the Data Controller, notify you if we directly receive a request relating to their rights and await your instructions on how to proceed.
If we are asked to process the information requests we may ask your client to confirm their identity so that we can validate their request. Your clients may make a request by email or writing to the DPO using the contact details provided above.
Your Clients have the right to:
- Request access to your personal data and check that we are lawfully processing it.
- Request correction of the personal data that we hold about you if you consider that it is inaccurate.
- Request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party.
- Request erasure of your personal data. This includes where you have been successful in exercising your right to object to processing (see below). However we may not be able to comply with your request for erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.
- Request restriction of processing of your personal data. This may be the case if you want us to establish the data’s accuracy or where our use of the personal data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it.
- Object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts your fundamental rights and freedoms.
Where you exercise your rights to request erasure, or request a restriction in the processing of your personal data or to object to processing of your personal data, we may still need to keep basic contact information about you if you are already or will shortly be an active customer as we will require this for contractual purposes.
We will not charge a fee unless we feel the request for your personal information is clearly unfounded or excessive (repeated requests) where we will either charge a reasonable fee or refuse to deal with the request.
