These automated decisions can affect the products, services or features we may offer you now or in the future. The following are some of the ways we may use systems to make automated decisions:

Tailoring products and services

We may use your data along with that of other customer in order to study and learn about our customers’ needs, and to make decisions based on what we learn. This helps us to design products and services for different customer groups, and to manage our relationships with them.

Fraud detection

We use your personal information to help determine if your account is being used fraudulently or for money-laundering. If there is a risk of fraud, or money laundering, we may suspend or terminate your account and refuse access to your account.

Opening accounts

We may use automated checks to help determine if you satisfy our criteria for becoming a client, including fraud, money laundering and eligibility checks.


You can ask that we do not make our decision based on the automated decision alone.

You can object to an automated decision, and ask that a person reviews it.

If you want to know more about these rights, or to exercise them, please contact us at ask@yourdatacompliance.com

Where We Store And Transfer Your Personal Information

All information you provide to us will be transferred and stored in a jurisdiction located in the European Economic Area (EEA). However, we may transfer some or all of your data to countries outside of the EEA which may not offer the same level of protection as the General Data Protection Regulations with respect to the processing of your personal data. The General Data Protection Regulations is the legal instrument that deals with the protection of your data (‘GDPR’).

Where your data is transferred to such countries it will be protected by appropriate safeguards, namely the use of standard data protection clauses adopted or approved by the European Commission (EC) can by found on the EC’s website:


Where data is to be transferred to a group company in a country outside of the EEA which may not offer the same level of protection as the GDPR with respect to the processing of your personal data, we will ensure that the group company agrees to binding corporate rules in accordance with Article 47 of the GDPR. Further information can by found on the EC’s website: :


Where we transfer data to organisations based in the US, we may transfer data to them if they are part of the Privacy Shield which requires them to provide similar protection to personal data shared between the Europe and the US. For further details, see EC’s website page:


Data Security

We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

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

Keeping And Deleting Your Personal Information

We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your data: see request erasure below for further information.

In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.

Your Rights In Relation To Your Personal Information

Under the General Data Protection Regulation you have the right to:

    • Request access to your personal data (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
    • Request correction of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.
    • Request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.
    • Object to processing of your personal data. This enables you to object where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.
    • Request restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios: (a) if you want us to establish the data’s accuracy; (b) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (c) where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (d) you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.
    • Request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.
    • Withdraw consent. This allows you to withdraw your consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.

If you wish to exercise any of these rights you will need to contact us using the contact details above. In the case of exercising your right to access, you will also need to provide appropriate evidence of your identity.

No Fee Usually Required

You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.


We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
