Privacy Policy

The Notice is issued by Bracken Rothwell Limited. 

Bracken Rothwell Limited is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy at all times.  Therefore, we respect and protect your right to privacy and will process your personal data in accordance with the provisions of the European General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) and other applicable privacy laws.  

The GDPR and any other applicable privacy laws apply to this Privacy Notice and anything not specifically mentioned in this notice shall be governed by the GDPR and any other applicable privacy laws.

This Privacy Notice explains how we may use, process and store your personal data.
 

What is personal data?

Personal data is information that can identify a living individual from the information we hold on them.  This includes their name, address and contact details and may include individual’s IP addresses and online identifiers.  This is data which identifies an individual, even without a name associated with it, where it is processed to learn or record something about that individual.  Data may ‘relate to’ an individual in several different ways, such as 

  • Information processed or held in electronic form – on a computer;
  • Information processed in a non-automated manner – paper records held in a filing system; and
  • Information that forms part of any accessible record – certain health records, educational records etc.

What kind of personal data do we collect?

We collect the following types of personal data:

  • names and contact information;
  • general demographic information (such as gender, age, date of birth, marital status, nationality, employment details, residence, utility bills, etc.);
  • personal identification documentation and related information such as passport numbers, national ID Card, driver’s licence and employee identification numbers;
  • source of wealth;
  • financial and payment data such as bank account numbers, bank statements and transaction information;
  • tax residency; and
  • information related to the provision of the services performed under the Letter of Engagement or per the services provided by the Client to such individuals.
  • The list above is not exhaustive and that Bracken Rothwell Limited may also collect and process personal data to extent this is useful or necessary for the provision of our services.
     

What is sensitive data?

Under Data Protection law some data may be considered ‘sensitive’ – this could be racial or ethnic origin, political opinion, religion, a membership of a trade union, health, genetic/biometric data or criminal activity.
 

How does Bracken Rothwell Limited collect personal data?

Bracken Rothwell Limited obtains and processes personal data in different ways.

  • Personal data provided to Bracken Rothwell Limited directly:
    We will collect personal data directly from all clients including prospective clients, and intermediaries for the purposes of entering into a contract or service agreement and/or to be compliant with certain legal requirements.
  • Personal data obtained from third parties:
    We will collect and process personal data from publicly accessible sources such as the internet, social networks, compliance screening systems or commercial registers.  We may also receive personal data from third parties as part of the service we provide to you or in connection with legal requirements that are applicable to us.

How does Bracken Rothwell Limited use personal data?

The majority of the personal data processed by Bracken Rothwell Limited is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party or to comply with the request of the data subject prior to entering into a contract. Bracken Rothwell Limited also processes personal data in order to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations.

We may furthermore process personal data for the purposes of the legitimate business interests pursued by Bracken Rothwell Limited. Such legitimate interests include general research and development (including statistical research or as a basis to analyse our current security measures) or to develop and improve our services or to strengthen our relationship with you. We may provide you with communications or information regarding our service offering which we think will be interesting for you. When we process your personal data for our legitimate business interests, we will consider any potential impact on you and your rights under the relevant data protection and any other relevant law. Whenever we process personal data for these purposes you have the right to object to this way of processing.

The following is a list of potential recipients of data (in each case including respective employees, directors and officers):

If disclosure or transfer of personal data is undertaken in a country that does not ensure an adequate level of protection of your personal data, Bracken Rothwell Limited will make sure additional safeguards are put in place.

 

Record Retention

Bracken Rothwell Limited will process and store the relevant personal data for the duration of our services or for the duration of the business relationship.
