We collect and use your personal data to enable us to conduct our business with you and to comply with the law. The law requires us to tell you why we collect and use your personal data – this is known as the lawful basis for processing. The basis we rely upon will depend on the purposes for which we are processing your personal data and are detailed below.
1. Performing our Contract with You
When you provide personal data to us, we will use that personal data so we can provide our services to you or send you information about our products and services where appropriate.
We will only process that data for the purposes for which it was collected or to meet our legal obligations.
2. Our Legitimate Interests
We process your information for the following reasons, which we define as our legitimate interests:
- To conduct our security operations such as using your IP address to help us to identify you when you log in to our systems
- To help us to run our business; this includes financial management, risk management, planning, corporate governance, audit and research
- To market to you if you are a business.
3. Our Legal Obligations
In some circumstances, we have a legal obligation to process and share your personal data. As a financial services business, we must provide a wide range of data to regulators. Sometimes this involves personal data. We will never transfer more personal data than is necessary to discharge our legal obligations.
4. Your Consent
We will ask you for your preferences in terms of how you would like us to communicate with you and what information you would like to receive from us. You can always adjust your communications preferences, and can opt not to receive information from us unless we are obliged to provide it.
