What personal information do we collect?
To get a clear understanding of your personal and financial circumstances the information we collect will primarily come from you directly, however we may request information from 3rd party sources (for example policy providers/Government departments/solicitors/accountants) and we will again obtain your signed consent to approach them prior to contact being made.
Why do we collect and use your personal information?
The primary lawful basis for the capture and processing of your personal information is for the performance of our contract with you. Without obtaining this personal information and your appropriate consents, we are unable to carry out effectively the services that you have engaged with us to do.
Additionally, a lawful basis to process your personal information exists where we have an obligation to comply with the law and other legislative regulations or where we have a legitimate interest to do so.
Who will we share your personal information with?
So that we can deliver our services to you effectively, we may share your personal information with 3rd parties. This information will be shared only when deemed necessary in completing the services we are contracted to provide to you or where we are legally obliged to do so. We will never share your information with other companies for marketing purposes.
Where we share your information with companies with whom we have entered into an agreement to supply us with services vital to the performance of our contract with you, they too are subject to the GDPR rules and only have our express permission to use your information for the sole purpose of providing these services to us.
Where new products are being arranged, we have a legitimate interest in providing information to external providers to obtain personalised illustrations and quotes during our research, advice and implementation processes.
Where we provide information to 3rd parties, we will use appropriate measures to protect your information. This may include password protection and data encryption.
How long do we keep hold of your information?
We will maintain and update our records of your personal information for as long as you remain a client of Leodis Wealth or hold one of our products. Our regulatory obligations dictate that we hold your information for a period of up to 7 years, or in some instances indefinitely, after our relationship ends. This is to ensure we are able to respond to any ongoing or future queries or complaints relating to advice.
Where you have agreed, we would like to send you information about our products and services which we believe may be of interest to you, or relevant to the services we provide to you. Where you have given us permission you may opt out of receiving our marketing literature at any time by contacting us by email or post.
Accessing the information held about you?
You have the right of access to the information we hold about you. To request a copy (of some or all) of the information we hold please email or write to us using the contact details on the front page. There will be no charge for this, and we will provide this information to you within 1 month of receipt of your request (this period may be extended by up to 2 months where the request is complex or numerous and we will write to you within 1 month explaining the reason for the extension).
