Why have a privacy policy?

There are a number of laws which set out important standards regarding information that identifies a living individual. This is known as “personal data.” All organisations processing personal data must do so fairly and lawfully. They must also be registered with the Information Commissioner in the United Kingdom whose role it is to ensure that organisations comply with their data processing obligations. You can view a copy of our data protection notification by visiting the Information Commissioner’s website. Go to: www.ico.org.uk

What personal data do we collect about you and how?

We may collect, store and process your personal data so that we can offer and perform our services. Some of the information we request is voluntary, and you do not have to provide it. Typical information we might ask for includes your name, your address, other contact details and bank account information. We may also store other personal data, including information from third parties, such as credit referencing agencies.

We collect your personal data in a number of different ways, including the following:

  • if you provide it when communicating with us (for example when registering for our services);
  • if you utilise our services;
  • if you make payments or modify your account details; and
  • when you visit our websites (for example by cookies and other browser-generated information).

How do we use your personal data?

We retain and use your personal data for the following main purposes:

  • for the proper operation of our systems, the protection of Asset Macro or its users and customers
  • processing applications made by you, running your accounts, providing our services, contacting you and servicing our relationship with you; administration and accounting, billing and auditing and other legal purposes;
  • security, payment verification, preventing and detecting money laundering, fraud and other crime, insurance, credit assessment and administration, tracing debtors and recovering debt;
  • generating statistics on our users such as the popularity of certain of our services, about the “traffic” visiting our websites;
  • (except where you have not agreed to be contacted) we may also use your personal data to keep you informed about relevant products and services. We may use your personal data including your contact details, your application details (but not banking details) and details of the services we provide you with and how you use them, to decide what products and services may be of interest to you.

You can ask us at any time to stop sending you this information by writing to us at the address at the end of this policy. Please remember that even if you have requested this, we may still contact you about the running of your existing account and for the services requested from us.

Safeguarding your personal data

We take all reasonable care in the collection, storage, processing and disclosure of your personal data and have implemented internal security procedures so as to minimise the risk that unauthorised parties will be able to access the information. Please note, we may ask for proof of identity before we disclose any personal information about you. Although we cannot guarantee that your information will never be lost, misused or altered by any of our employees, we have implemented procedures to minimise the risk of these unlikely events. Nonetheless, the Internet is an open medium and we cannot guarantee that any information you send to us by email or via our website will not be intercepted or tampered with.
