6. Information we disclose

Redburn shares information internally within our group of companies or with third parties for purposes described in this policy. An example of these parties is the company we use to prepare and mail your account statements or to perform our internal auditing. Information collected within the European Economic Area (“EEA”) may, for example, be transferred to countries outside of the EEA for the purposes as described in this policy. We utilise standard contract clauses approved by the European Commission, adopt other means under European Union law to legitimise data transfers from the EEA to the United States and other countries.

Even if you cease to transact business with Redburn, we will continue to apply the same protections to your personal data, just as we did when you were an active client.

7. Protecting your information

Your personal data is processed and stored securely. Redburn maintains a series of effective controls, including automated and manual controls, ensuring that all data under its control will be retained for at least the minimum periods and for no longer than the maximum periods stipulated under regulatory requirements. This is performed in accordance with Redburn’s Data Retention Policy and associated Schedules.

Redburn protects the personal data of its clients and customers from unlawful access by third parties by maintaining physical, electronic and procedural safeguards. For example, encryption of data at rest and appropriate access control and physical security measures, such as building access for those locations where such data is stored.

We limit access to your personal data to those employees who are trained in the proper handling of a client’s data and who need access to the information to perform their job functions. These employees are responsible for ensuring that data under their control is maintained in compliance with Redburn’s Data Protection Policy, and that the policy requirements are acted upon.

8. How Long Will We Keep Your Personal Data?

Whenever we collect or process your personal data, we only keep it for as long as is necessary for the purpose for which it was collected.

At the end of that retention period (as determined by our Data Retention Policy) your data will either be deleted completely or anonymised, for example by aggregation with other data so that it can be used in a non-identifiable way for statistical analysis and business planning.

If we receive a request from you to exercise any of the above rights, we may ask you to verify your identity before acting on the request; this is to ensure that your data is protected and kept secure. The extent of these rights is limited by law and we may not act on part or all of your request(s) where the right(s) are not applicable. If we do not act on your request, we will explain our reasons why.
