Collection of your personal information from third party sources

If you are involved in a business relationship with us, we may also obtain some limited information about you indirectly, for example when your colleagues give us your contact details and information about your role, or from publicly available sources such as the Internet and/or subscription-based services.

Use of Your Personal Information

We may use the information we collect about you for purposes which are made clear to you (or which you already know) when you provide your information or for the following purposes:

Business-related purposes

protecting the security and integrity of our premises, websites and other information technology systems.

Legal and compliance purposes

1. protecting ourselves and our employees and business counterparties against fraud and other criminal activity, and co-operating with law enforcement and other regulatory agencies;

2. exercising and defending our legal rights and legal claims made against us; and

3. complying with our legal and regulatory obligations.

Except as otherwise allowed by this policy, SECO will not trade, sell, or rent personal information but may collect, or provide aggregate statistics about its websites and their users to other parties who do not provide services directly to SECO.

Except in rare circumstances where SECO is required by law to disclose or otherwise process your personal information, SECO will only process your personal information as necessary for the purposes explained to you when the information is collected or otherwise set out in this policy. SECO will not collect your personal information unless it has concluded that it has a legitimate interest in pursuing the relevant purpose.

Disclosures

SECO entities may share personal information about you between themselves, and they may disclose your personal information to technology and other service providers, including professional advisors, who hold and process the information on their behalf.

SECO may also disclose your personal information if it has a good faith belief that this is necessary for the legal and compliance purposes set out above. For these purposes, we may, for example, disclose information about you to courts and litigation counterparties, insurers, the police and other competent governmental authorities.

As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy assets. In such transactions, personal information is generally one of the transferred business assets. Also, if either SECO itself or substantially all of SECO’s assets were acquired, personal information may be one of the transferred assets. Therefore, we may disclose and/or transfer personal information to a third party purchaser in these circumstances.

If your personal information is collected or processed by a SECO entity within the European Economic Area (the "EEA"), you should be aware that the disclosures described above may include transfers of your personal information to recipients outside the EEA, including recipients in countries (such as the United States) which do not have data privacy laws as strict as those in the EEA. Personal information transferred to SECO entities in the United States is protected by the commitments made by SECO through its participation in the EU-US Privacy Shield discussed below. Where your personal information is transferred to other SECO entities, or to third party service providers, in countries without strict data privacy laws, the information will be protected by data transfer agreements in the appropriate form approved for this purpose by the European Commission – if you would like further information about these agreements, or to see a copy of any of them, please contact us as described below.
