  • Third parties who conduct marketing for us.
  • Our professional advisors (e.g., legal, financial, business, risk management or other advisors), bankers and auditors
  • Our insurers and insurance brokers
  • Third party service providers, to whom we outsource certain functions such as information and document management, office support, technology and IT services, word processing, photocopying and translation services (we have agreements in place with these service providers to protect the confidentiality and security of information (including personal data) shared with them)

5. Which countries we transfer your personal data to

As a global company, we cannot limit our processing of an individual’s personal data to the country in which that individual is based. In the course of providing our services, we will likely need to transfer personal data to locations outside the jurisdiction in which you provide it or where you are viewing our website. If you are based in the United Kingdom (UK) or European Economic Area (EEA), this will mean that your personal data may be transferred to, accessible from, and/or stored at, a destination outside the UK/EEA in which data protection laws may not be as comprehensive as in the UK/EEA.

Regardless of the location of our processing, we will impose the same data protection safeguards that we deploy inside the UK/EEA and implement appropriate measures to ensure that your personal data is protected in accordance with applicable data protection laws. Similarly, where a third-party service provider processes the personal data of EEA or UK residents on our behalf, we will ensure that appropriate measures are in place to ensure an adequate level of protection for your personal data, usually by including standard contractual clauses in our agreements with such third-party service providers (alongside other supplementary technical or contractual measures where necessary).

Please contact us as directed below if you would like to see a copy of the specific safeguards applied to the export of your personal data

6. How long we keep your personal data

We will retain your personal data for as long as is necessary to fulfil the purpose for which this data was collected and any other permitted linked purpose. If your personal data is used for two purposes, we will retain it until the purpose with the latest period expires; but we will stop using it for the purpose with a shorter period once that period expires. Our retention periods are also based on our business needs and good practice.

7. How we protect your personal data

We recognise that information security is an integral element of data privacy. While no data transmission (including over the Internet or any website) can be guaranteed to be secure from intrusion, we implement a range of commercially reasonable physical, technical, and procedural measures to help protect personal data from unauthorised access, use, disclosure, alteration, or destruction in accordance with data protection law requirements.

Information that you provide to us is stored on our or our service providers’ secure servers and accessed and used subject to our security policies and standards, or those agreed with our service providers.
