For more information on this, please refer to the service charter (Service Charter) you received from your Adviser.

Your Adviser will also be a Data Controller in respect of your personal data. You should contact your Adviser should you have any enquiries relating to their processing of your personal data in the course of providing their services to you.

When submitting general enquiries to Us (including through the Website), your name and e-mail address are required from you to enable Us to respond to your enquiry.

We will inform you at the point of collecting information from you, whether you are required to provide any other information to Us.



Purposes of, and Lawful basis for, processing

We use information held about you for the following purposes:

  • To provide the Compliance Services to your Adviser in accordance with Our contractual obligations to your Adviser. We have a legitimate interest in processing your personal data for these purposes and our legitimate interest is “performance of a contract with a third party”.
  • To comply with our legal obligations as an FCA regulated entity, including preparing and sending reports and submissions to regulatory authorities such as the FCA. “Compliance with a legal obligation” is the lawful basis on which we rely when we are carrying out regulated activities.
  • To provide the Our Services, including:
    • To send you service, support and administrative messages, reminders, technical notices, updates, security alerts, and information requested by you. 
    • To operate, protect, improve and optimise the Our Services, Our business, and Our users' experience, such as to perform analytics, conduct research, personalise or otherwise customise your experience, and for advertising and marketing.
    • To ensure that content on the Our Services are presented in the most effective manner for you and for the device(s) you use to access and use the Our Services.
    • To respond to any enquiries you submit to Us;
    • As part of Our efforts to keep the Our Services safe and secure.
  • Where we have a contract with you to provide the Our Services, and where the processing of your data is necessary to perform such contract, we rely on “performance of a contract with the data subject” as the legal basis for the processing. In all other circumstances we rely on “legitimate interest” and our legitimate interests are improvement of our services and/or prevention or detection of fraud.
  • Where you provide the Advisers with special category data and they provide the same to us, they will have obtained your consent for this processing. We will use this data only to provide the Compliance Services to the Adviser.
  • We also use your personal data where you have contacted Us via the Website, by e-mail or telephone or participated in any surveys. In these circumstances we rely on “legitimate interest” and the legitimate interest is responding and contacting you regarding the enquiries you have made in relation to the services We offer.



As part of your use of certain Our Services or provision of our Compliance Services to your Adviser, We may share your personal data with third party regulatory authorities such as the FCA and the Financial Ombudsman Service, as well as with your Adviser.

We may pass your personal data to Our third party service providers, agents, subcontractors and other associated organisations for the purposes of: (i) completing tasks and providing services to you on our behalf (e.g. to host Our servers) and (ii) storing, protecting and securing your personal data.

We may disclose your personal data to any member of Our corporate group, which means Our subsidiaries, Our ultimate holding company and its subsidiaries, as defined in section 1159 of the UK Companies Act 2006 (where applicable).

We may also disclose your personal data to third parties:

  • in the event that We sell or buy any business or assets, in which case We may disclose your personal data to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets; or
  • if We or substantially all of our assets are acquired by a third party, in which case personal data held by Us about our customers will be one of the transferred assets; or
  • if We are under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal or other regulatory obligation, including the orders of the FCA or any court of competent jurisdiction; or
  • to protect Our rights, property, or safety or that of our affiliated entities and any third party We interact with as part of the compliance and regulatory services We provide to your Adviser.

Other than as set out above, and save insofar as is necessary in order for Us to carry out our obligations arising from any contracts entered into between you and Us, We will not share your data with third parties unless We have procured your express consent to do so.




We take appropriate measures to ensure that any personal data are kept secure, including security measures to prevent personal data from being accidentally lost, or used or accessed in an unauthorised way. We limit access to your personal data to those who have a genuine business need to know it. Those processing your information will do so only in an authorised manner and are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

We also have procedures in place to deal with any suspected data security breach. We will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected data security breach where We are legally required to do so.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although We will do our best to protect your personal data, We cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to Us; any transmission of your data to a Our Service is at your own risk. Once We have received your information, We will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access. 

Keeping your personal data up to date

If your personal details change you may update them by contacting your Adviser. With certain Our Services, you may update your personal data by contacting Us directly using the contact details below. If you are unsure as to who you should contact, We will endeavour to advise you accordingly. If you have any questions about how We use data collected which relates to you, please contact Us by sending a request by email to the contact details below.

Where you have contacted Us regarding an update to your personal data and We agree that this should be dealt with by Us as opposed to your Adviser, We will endeavour to update your personal data within 14 working days of any new or updated personal data being provided to Us, in order to ensure that the personal data We hold about you is as accurate and up to date as possible.

How long We keep your personal data

  • We will hold your personal data relating to occupational pension transfers indefinitely in order to comply with the requirements of Our regulators from time to time.
  • We are required to hold your personal data relating to your investments for a minimum period of 5 years after the expiry or termination of our contract with you, and will continue to do so for so long as Our regulators require.
  • If you contact Us as a prospective customer using Our e-mail address or via Our Website contact form, requesting general information about our services, We will hold that personal data you choose to provide such as your name, address, e-mail address, for 12 months from Our last point of contact.
  • If you contact Us as a prospective customer using Our e-mail address or via Our Website contact form, requesting quotes and information about Our services in respect of specific projects, We will hold that personal data you choose to provide such as your name, address, e-mail address, for 12 months from Our last point of contact.
  • Data such as IP addresses, traffic data, location data, weblogs and other communication data will be retained for 12 months.

Where we store your personal data

All information We hold about you is stored on our secure servers within the EEA.

The data that We collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area ("EEA"). By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is held securely and in accordance with this Policy. Countries outside the EEA do not have the same data protection laws as the United Kingdom and EEA and We have therefore ensured that any of our suppliers who may transfer your personal data outside the EEA has put in place appropriate measures to protect your data, either by being a member of the US-EU Privacy Shield, or by entering into a European Commission approved contract (as permitted under Article 46(5) of the General Data Protection Regulation).

If you would like further information please contact your Adviser. You may also contact Us using the contact details below. We will not otherwise transfer your personal data outside of the EEA or to any organisation (or subordinate bodies) governed by public international law or which is set up under any agreement between two or more countries.



Under the General Data Protection Regulation you have a number of important rights free of charge. In summary, those include rights to:

  • access to your personal data and to certain other supplementary information that this Policy is already designed to address
  • require Us to correct any mistakes in your information which We hold
  • require the erasure of personal data concerning you in certain situations
  • receive the personal data concerning you which you have provided to Us, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and have the right to transmit those data to a third party in certain situations
  • object at any time to processing of personal data concerning you for direct marketing
  • object to decisions being taken by automated means which produce legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affect you
  • object in certain other situations to our continued processing of your personal data
  • otherwise restrict our processing of your personal data in certain circumstances
  • claim compensation for damages caused by our breach of any data protection laws.

For further information on each of those rights, including the circumstances in which they apply, see the Guidance from the UK Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) on individuals’ rights under the General Data Protection Regulation.

If you would like to exercise any of those rights, please:

  • email, call or write to Us using the “Contact” details below;
  • let Us have enough information to identify you,
  • let Us have proof of your identity and address (a copy of your driving licence or passport and a recent utility or credit card bill), and
  • let Us know the information to which your request relates.



We hope that We can resolve any query or concern you raise about our use of your information.

The General Data Protection Regulation also gives you right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the European Union (or European Economic Area) state where you work, normally live or where any alleged infringement of data protection laws occurred. The supervisory authority in the UK is the Information Commissioner who may be contacted at or telephone: 0303 123 1113.



We reserve the right to modify this Policy at any time. Any changes We may make to our Policy in the future will be notified and made available to you through the applicable Our Service. Your continued use of the Our Service shall be deemed your acceptance of the varied Policy.
