7. Data protection

In connection with the use of this service by you we may process “personal data” (referred to below as personal information) acting as a “data controller” or as a “data processor” on your behalf as such terms are defined in the Data Protection Act

The personal information we process as a data controller includes information about, and received from, you. This information may also be obtained from other third parties, such as credit reference agencies. The information we hold includes:

  • personal information such as name, address and contact information (including email address); and
  • payment information (including debit and/or credit card details).

We will use this information to provide the services to you and to deal with any enquiries that you may make.

We may also process this information for the purpose of compliance with applicable laws and regulations, or to defend ourselves in claims under such laws, or where necessary to exercise our legitimate business interests. Relevant portions of this information may also be used for other secondary legal, administrative and management purposes such as audits and research.

This personal information will be held in accordance with the applicable data protection legislation.

In providing the services to you, we may also act as a data processor in respect of personal information provided by you, or by third parties on your behalf or which we obtain for you. We will process this personal information in accordance with your instructions and will take appropriate technical and organisational measures against unauthorised or unlawful processing of this personal information and its accidental loss, destruction or damage.

We may share the personal information we hold as a data controller or data processor with members of Montech Technologies LLC or any Affiliated Office and other advisors, service providers or other third parties (some of which may be outside the USA which do not have laws protecting the use of personal information) in connection with conflict clearance and other administration or compliance requirements or the performance of legal, administrative or related services (including those referred to below). We may also disclose personal information to our insurers and their advisors, or to third parties and their advisors in connection with any merger, acquisition or disposal of all or part of our business. We will only disclose personal information to other people or organisations:

  • if we have obtained your consent or instructions to do so; or
  • where we are required or permitted to do so by law; or
  • if those people or organisations are providing a service to us or you.

Sometimes we may ask other companies, including companies located outside of America, to undertake back office administration on our behalf, such as processing invoices, banking administration, payment and receipt of client monies, typing and other secretarial services.

Where we transfer personal information to service providers or advisers in other countries (some of which may be outside the USA which do not have laws protecting the use of personal information), we will do so on the basis that the recipient provides appropriate technical and organisational measures against unauthorised or unlawful processing of this personal information and its accidental loss, destruction or damage.

However, such information may be accessible by law enforcement agencies and other authorities in those countries to prevent and detect crime and to comply with legal obligations.

Any personal information supplied by us to you about our employees and/or third parties may only be used for the express purposes for which that information is provided to you.
