How We Collect and Use Personal Data

We collect and process personal data about a number of different individuals through the provision of the Services. These individuals include our individual clients and prospective clients, their representatives, visitors to our offices, visitors to our Sites, vendors, and other individuals.

The majority of our clients are corporate entities and data about entities is not personal data.

This includes contact information and any other personal data that is relevant to or necessary for us to perform a proper background check, or a required “Anti-Money Laundering” or “Know Your Customer” background check in order to deliver the Client Services.

We also process personal data to assist in building relationships. This includes name, contact information and job title and may also include education information, work history and gender. If you attend one of our events, we may also have information about your dietary requirements.

How long will you use my information for?

We will only retain your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

In some circumstances we may anonymize your personal information so that it can no longer be associated with you, in which case we may use such information without further notice to you.

European Economic Area and United Kingdom

These disclosures (the “Disclosures”) supplement Nordlink Capital Limited’s Privacy Notice.

The Disclosures apply only to our processing of personal data within the scope of the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) from one or more of the European Union Member States plus Iceland, Lichtenstein and Norway (together known as the “European Economic Area” or “EEA”).

Data Retention

We retain personal data pursuant to our records retention program, for as long as is necessary for the purposes set out in the Nordlink Capital Limited’s Privacy Notice, unless a longer period is required under applicable law or regulation or is needed to resolve disputes or protect our legal rights, in accordance with the principles set forth in Article 5(1) of the GDPR. The criteria used to determine the period for which personal data about you will be stored varies depending on the legal basis under which we process such personal data:

Legitimate Interests For a reasonable period of time based on the particular interest, taking into account the fundamental interests and the rights and freedoms of the data subjects.
Contractual Necessity For the duration of the contract plus some additional limited period of time that is necessary to comply with law or that represents the limitation period for legal claims that could arise from the contractual relationship
Legal/Regulatory Obligation For the duration of time we are legally obligated to keep the information
Consent For the period of time necessary to fulfill the underlying agreement with you, subject to your right, under certain circumstances, to have certain personal data about you erased (see “Data Subject Rights” below).

We may face a threat of legal claim and in that case, we may need to apply a “legal hold” that retains information beyond our typical retention period. In that case, we will retain the information until the hold is removed, which typically means the claim or threat of claim has been resolved.

Transfers of Information Across Borders

Any information that you provide to us is stored and processed in, and transferred between, any of the countries in which Nordlink Capital Limited and its agents, contractors and affiliated organizations have offices, in order to enable Nordlink Capital Limited to use that information as set out in this Privacy Notice. This includes countries such as Australia, Hong Kong, Spain, the United Kingdom and the United States. Not all of these countries have data protection laws equivalent to those in force in the EEA. Except the United Kingdom, which is currently in the EU, the European Commission (in the EU) has yet to make a decision of adequacy in relation to the protection given to personal data in any of the other listed countries. In order to ensure the protection of your personal data we have put in place European Commission approved Standard Contractual Clauses between each of the Nordlink Capital Limited’s entities.

Data Security

We seek to use reasonable organizational, technical and administrative measures to protect personal data within our firm. Unfortunately, no data transmission or storage system can be guaranteed to be secure at all times.
