The meaning of Personal Data
“Personal Data” is defined in data protection laws applicable in your country and may be identified by other titles, such as “Personal Information” (in California, USA). It includes any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. This means any individual who can be identified directly or indirectly by reference to an identifier such as name, identification number, location data, online identifiers (for example, IP addresses – if they can be used to identify you) or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
Put simply, this includes data which either by itself or with other data held by us or available to us, can be used to identify you.
Important notice about international transfers
Due to the global nature of our business, your Personal Data will be stored and transferred to parties located in other countries, including outside the European Economic Area. These other countries will either have different data protection laws than your country of residence or they will not have data protection laws. They may not be deemed by the European Commission as providing adequate protection for Personal Data.
In particular, we store your Personal Data on servers in the United States of America. The United States is not deemed by the European Commission to have adequate protections for Personal Data. Steps will be taken to put in place safeguards (including around security) to protect your Personal Data when it is in these other countries. This may include the use of European Model Clause contracts, where required under applicable law. You can find out what these are online at the following address: http://ec.europa.eu/justice/data-protection/international-transfers/transfer/index_en.htm. If you have any questions or wish to be provided with a copy please contact us (details below). Please note commercially sensitive information may be removed/blanked out from copies supplied to you.

For California Residents
The Personal Data (or personal information) that we collect includes information within the categories of data in the table above. These categories also represent the categories of personal information that we have collected over the past 12 months. Note that the categories listed are defined by California state law. Inclusion of a category in the list indicates only that, depending on the services and products we provide you, we may collect some information within that category. It does not necessarily mean that we collect all information listed in a particular category for all of our customers and Site users.
We do not sell Personal Data about you, as defined under California state law, nor do we intend to do so. We also have not done so for the last 12 months. In addition, we do not share Personal Data with third parties for their direct marketing purposes.
Data anonymisation and use of aggregated information
We may convert your Personal Data into statistical or aggregated data in such a way as to ensure that you are not identified or identifiable from that data. We may use this aggregated data to conduct market research and analysis, including to produce statistical research and reports. For example, we may produce reports on which of our product offerings attract the fewest or the highest number of enquiries from brokers and intermediaries and other persons visiting our Site.
In particular, we use technology to collect anonymous information about the use of this Site. For example:
- we use technology to track which pages of our Site visitors view. We also use technology to determine which web browsers our visitors use. This technology does not identify you personally, it simply enables us to compile statistics about our visitors and their use of our Site.
- certain pages of this Site may contain hyperlinks to other pages of it. We may use technology to track how often these links are used and which pages on our Site our visitors choose to view. Again this technology does not identify you personally — it simply enables us to compile statistics about the use of these hyperlinks.
We use this anonymous data to improve the content and functionality of this Site and consider areas and subjects which are attracting interest so that we can focus our e-mail updates (for those that wish to receive such communications). This allows us to better understand our Site visitors’ interest areas generally and therefore to improve our Site and products and services we offer.

In particular, we endeavour to maintain technical and organisational measures to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk, including as appropriate: (a) pseudonymisation (such as where data is separated from direct identifiers so that linkage to an identity is not possible without additional information that is held separately) and encryption, (b) ensuring the ongoing confidentiality, integrity, availability and resilience of systems and services used to process your Personal Data, (c) ensuring the ability to restore the availability and access to Personal Data in a timely manner in the event of a physical or technical incident; and (d) ensuring a process for regularly testing, assessing and evaluating the effectiveness of technical and organisational security measures.
