- regulatory and law enforcement authorities, whether they are outside or inside of the EEA,

Sending personal data overseas
To deliver services to you, it is sometimes necessary for us to share your personal information
outside the European Economic Area (EEA), e.g.:
with service providers located outside the EEA;
if you are based outside the EEA;
where there is an international dimension to the services we are providing to you.
These transfers are subject to special rules under European and Gibraltar data protection law.
These non-EEA countries do not have the same data protection laws as Gibraltar and EEA. We
will, however, ensure the transfer complies with data protection law and all personal
information will be secure. We will send your data to countries where the European
Commission has made an adequacy decision, meaning that it has ruled that the legislative
framework in the country provides an adequate level of data protection for your personal
information. You can find out more about this here.
Where we send your data to a country where the European Commission has not made an
adequacy decision, our standard practice is to use standard data protection contract clauses
that have been approved by the European Commission. To obtain a copy of those clauses,
please go to the European Commission’s website.
We transfer your data to the United States of America. Please go to the Privacy Shield website
in order to find out more about the EU Commission-approved safeguards in place for that
data transfer.
If you would like further information please contact our Data Protection Officer.
How long do we store your personal data?
We will store your information for a period of 5 years after our business relationship ends in
order that we can comply with our obligations under applicable legislation such as anti-money
laundering and anti-fraud regulations. If any changes to applicable legislation require us to
retain your data for a longer period of time, we shall retain it for that period. We will not
retain your data for longer than is necessary.
Your rights regarding your personal data?
You have certain rights regarding the personal data which we process:
- You may request a copy of some or all of it.
- You may ask us to rectify any data which we hold which you believe to be inaccurate.
- You may ask us to erase your personal data.

- You may object to the processing of your personal data.

How is your information protected?
We implement security policies and technical measures in order to secure your personal data
and take steps to protect it from unauthorised access, use or disclosure.
While we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of
any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your
information, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems. Where we have
given (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of
our websites, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to
share your password with anyone.
We hope that our Data Protection Officer can resolve any query or concern you may raise about our
use of your personal 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 Gibraltar is the Gibraltar Regulatory Authority. Their contact details are as follows:
