Transfers of personal information outside the United Kingdom (UK)
Personal information in our possession may be transferred to countries and jurisdictions which are outside the UK. These may be where your investments are held, where transactions are effected, from where you receive or transmit information about your investments and where underlying managers conduct their activities.
These countries and jurisdictions may have differing (and potentially less stringent) laws relating to the protection of personal information. They may also have less stringent laws relating to the degree of confidentiality afforded to your information.
Information can become subject to the laws and disclosure requirements of such territories, including disclosure to governmental bodies, regulatory agencies and private persons as a result of applicable governmental or regulatory inquiries, court orders or other similar processes.
If we transfer your information outside the UK, we will make sure that it is done lawfully and will only occur where:
- we have your consent to share, or the transfer is otherwise legally allowed;
- the transfer is to a country that the UK has determined offers adequate data protection; or
- appropriate legal safeguards have been put in place in accordance with Data Protection Legislation. For further information about the relevant safeguards, please contact the Privacy Office using the details provided below.
Security of your information
We will take appropriate steps to store, process and send your personal information securely and employees are trained on and are aware of their responsibility to maintain your privacy.
We will take appropriate technical and organisational security measures against the accidental loss, destruction, damage and/or the unauthorised or unlawful use of your personal information. These will include ensuring that any service provider provides sufficient security guarantees in relation to any data processing it undertakes on our behalf.
Our website contains links to other websites. Evelyn Partners are not responsible for the privacy policies of third-party websites to which links are provided. You should check the privacy policies on these sites before providing any personal information. This privacy statement relates only to information contained on, or gathered, via our website.
How long do we keep hold of your information?
We will only keep the information we collect about you, through your use of our website or otherwise, for as long as required for the purposes set out above or as required to comply with any legal obligations to which we are subject. This will involve us regularly reviewing our files to check that information is accurate, up-to-date and still required.
Once we no longer need your personal information, we securely destroy it.
What are your rights in relation to the personal information we hold about you?
This section explains what rights you have under data protection law. If you want to exercise any of these rights, or if you would like further information about them, you can contact us using the details set out in the ‘Contact Us’ section below.
We will grant your rights request only to the extent that, following an assessment of your request, we are allowed and required to do so under data protection law. Your rights may be limited; for example, if fulfilling your request would unfairly reveal personal information about another person, or if you ask us to delete information which we are required by law or have a compelling legitimate interest to keep.
You have the right to:
1. ask for a copy of the personal information we hold about you in a written format, free of charge.
2. require us, and any third parties who we have shared your personal information with, to correct any inaccuracies in your personal information.
3. in certain cases, ask us to restrict or suppress further use of your personal information. When you have exercised this right, we can still store your personal information but may not use it further unless you provide your consent for us to do so or as otherwise permitted by law.
4. object to the processing of your personal information in certain circumstances.
5. have the personal information we hold about you erased in certain circumstances, unless it prevents us from carrying out the services you have requested or prevents us from meeting our legal obligations.
6. obtain and reuse your personal information for your own purposes across different organisations; for example, if you wish to move to a new financial services provider. This enables you to move, copy or transfer your personal information easily between our IT systems and another provider’s safely and securely (where technically feasible), without affecting its usability.
7. lodge a complaint about how we collect, process and store your personal information with our Data Protection Officer (details below), or with the supervisory authority: Information Commissioner's Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF.
You can contact the Evelyn Partners Privacy Office to exercise any of the rights relating to your personal information as set out above, or if you have any questions or comments about privacy issues, or wish to raise a complaint about how we are using your personal information, by emailing email@example.com or using the unsubscribe links at the bottom of our communications.
You may also contact our Data Protection Officer by post: The Data Protection Officer, Evelyn Partners, 45 Gresham Street, London, EC2V 7BG.
