We take the security of your personal data very seriously, and we use appropriate technologies and procedures to protect your personal information.

We keep our data security policies and procedures up to widely accepted international standards. In addition, we review our policies regularly and update them whenever needed to protect you, and to meet our business needs, changes in technology, and regulatory requirements.

Here are examples of the ways we protect your data:

a) We have appropriate technical and organisational measures in place to protect you against accidental loss and unauthorised access, use, destruction or disclosure of your data.

The internet is an open medium and we can’t guarantee that any information you send to us by email or via our sites won’t be intercepted or tampered with. Any transmission is at your own risk.

5. Our legal basis for using your information

Our legal basis for collecting and using your personal information depends on the exact type of information and how and when we collect it. However, we’ll normally only collect personal information from you, your employer, or another third party where one of the following applies:

a) we need your personal information to perform a contract with you (for example if you are a client of one of our financial service products);

b) it’s in our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of others (for example, to ensure the security of our website). Our legitimate interests are to:

i. run, grow and develop our business;

ii. ensure a safe environment for our staff and website visitors;

iii. marketing, market research and business development;

iv. provide client services; and,

v. for internal group administrative purposes.

If we rely on our (or another person's) legitimate interests for using your personal information, we will undertake a balancing test to ensure that our (or the other person's) legitimate interests are not outweighed by your personal interests or fundamental rights and freedoms which require protection.

c) we have your consent (for example you have ticked a box on a form):

We may use your special categories of data (such as health information) where you have provided your consent (which you may withdraw at any time after giving it, as described below).

We may also process your personal information in some cases for marketing purposes on the basis of your consent (which you may withdraw at any time after giving it, as described below).

If we rely on your consent for us to use your personal information in a particular way, but you later change your mind, you may withdraw your consent by contacting us and we will stop doing so.

d) we have a legal obligation to collect your personal information (such as for H.M.R.C. reporting).

When we collect personal information to comply with a legal requirement or to enter into a contract with you, we’ll let you know at that time. We’ll also tell you if providing your personal information is mandatory or not, and what the consequences would be if you don’t provide it. Similarly, if we collect and use your personal information for our legitimate interests (or those of any third party), which are not set out above we’ll tell you at that time what those legitimate interests are.

6. How and when we share your information

We’ll share your personal information with other members of the TLD Wealth Management Ltd Group to:

a) help us to better understand your needs, run your accounts and improve our products and services; and

b) contact you to tell you about the products and services we provide and think you could be interested in.

We also share your information with the following third parties: partners, suppliers, sub-contractors including but not limited to payment service providers, advertising networks, our professional advisors such as lawyers, auditors, insurers and information, service and software providers that help us improve and optimise our sites.

Our reasons for sharing your information with these service providers include:

a) To uphold our part of any contract we enter into with them or you.

b) To enforce or apply our statutory disclosures or any other agreement or to protect the rights, property or safety of our sites, our users or others.

We will also disclose your information to third parties:

a) where it is in our legitimate interests to do so to run, grow and develop our business:

b) if we sell or buy any business or assets, we may disclose your personal information to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets;

c) if substantially all of our assets are acquired by a third party, in which case personal information held by us will be one of the transferred assets;

d) if we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal information: in order to comply with any legal obligation, any lawful request from government, judicial bodies or agencies to make sure we comply with our legal and regulatory obligations; with law enforcement officials; and as may be required to meet national security or law enforcement requirements or prevent illegal activity; to work with fraud prevention agencies, other companies and organisations to prevent or detect financial and other crime.

e) in order to enforce or apply our terms and conditions or any other agreement or to respond to any claims, to protect our rights or the rights of a third party, to protect the safety of any person or to prevent any illegal activity; or

f) to protect our rights, property, or safety and that of our staff, our customers or other persons. This may include exchanging personal information with other organisations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

We will never sell, trade, or rent your personal information to anyone.

7. Transfers outside of Europe

We usually store your information on our secure servers in the United Kingdom.

However, where we use third parties to process your information for us, for any reason detailed in our Terms and Conditions, we may transfer your information to, and store it and process it inside or outside the European Economic Area.

Our partners and service providers may also transfer your personal information outside of the European Economic Area.

We’ll take all steps reasonably necessary to make sure that your personal information is treated securely. For example, as permitted by Article 46 of the General Data Protection Regulation, we use standard contractual clauses with third parties, so that your information is protected to the same standards as it is in the European Economic Area. If your information is sent to the US, in accordance with Articles 45 and 46 of the General Data Protection Regulation we make sure it goes to an organisation that is part of the Privacy Shield or that we use standard contractual clauses with third parties, so that your information is protected to the same standards as it is in the European Economic Area. Privacy Shield is the framework that sets privacy standards for information sent between US and EU countries, and it uses similar standards as the European Economic Area.

Countries outside the European Economic Area where your personal information can be transferred to include: United States of America, Canada, India and Australia.

8. How long we store your personal information

We keep the personal information we collect from you, your employer, and other third parties, where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so (for example, to provide you with a service you have requested or to comply with applicable legal, tax or accounting requirements).

We keep all records for a minimum of six years from when you stop being a client with us, or from when your records were provided to us (whichever is longer). We can use it to respond to any questions or complaints, to maintain records according to rules that apply to us, or for fighting financial crime, including fraud.

In certain circumstances, we will keep your information for longer than six years - for example if we can't delete it for technical reasons or for compliance with our legal and regulatory obligations. If your personal information is kept for longer than six years for research and statistical purposes it will be anonymised.

When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to hold your personal information, we will either delete or anonymise it. If we can’t do this (for example, because your personal information is stored in backup archives), we’ll securely store your personal information, only use it for a purpose we’ve already communicated to you, and isolate it from any further processing until archives are deleted.

Where we process information on behalf of other organisations we apply the same retention periods as above.

9. Marketing

We may collect and use your personal information for undertaking marketing by email, telephone and post.

We may send you certain direct marketing communications (including electronic marketing communications to existing customers) if it is in our legitimate interests to do so for marketing and business development purposes.

However, we will always obtain your consent to direct marketing communications where we are required to do so by law.

You have the right to ask us not to process your personal information for marketing purposes. You can do this by contacting us by post or email using the details in the “Contact TLD Wealth Management Ltd” section below. You can also unsubscribe from emails by following the unsubscribe instructions included in every email.
