At Schroders, we take our obligations in respect of your data seriously. We take responsibility – as a data “controller” – for ensuring that we use personal data in compliance with data protection laws.
We receive personal data as a result of the products and services that we offer, and from visitors to our websites.
The nature of our relationship with you will determine the type of personal data that we hold. This might include basic personal data, such as names and contact details, and in some cases sensitive personal data, which may be included in information we hold about an individual’s nationality, place of birth or health.
We may also obtain your personal data from other sources, for example credit reference agencies, fraud prevention agencies, law enforcement agencies and background screening providers, or from your representatives or professional advisers (e.g. IFAs) on your behalf.
Your personal data may be stored and processed by us in a number of ways and for a range of purposes, including to communicate with our clients and manage and strengthen client relationships, or in order to comply with applicable laws, rules and regulations, and/or internal policies and procedures
We have a legal basis to use your personal data in these ways, either because we are performing our contractual obligations, discharging our legal and/or regulatory obligations, deem it necessary for our legitimate business interests, or because we have your consent.
Schroders is a global business, with clients and operations around the world. As a result we may transfer your personal data to locations outside of your country. Where we do this your data will be protected and transferred in a manner consistent with legal requirements.
We may also share your personal data outside of the Schroders Group, for example with our service providers where they are contractually obliged to comply with appropriate data protection obligations.
We operate layers of safeguards and defences designed to ensure that Schroders is able to operate safely. We have controls and mechanisms in place designed to detect, respond and recover in case of any adverse events that may arise.
We retain personal data for as long as is necessary for the purpose for which we are using it, and to satisfy our legal obligations – laws or regulation may set a minimum period for which we have to retain personal data.
