In some cases, if you do not provide your personal information, we may not be able to provide services or products to you. We will notify you should it be necessary to use your personal data for a purpose other than for our current business activities as set out above.

In addition to those parties mentioned above, we may share your personal information with third parties for the purposes, and on legal grounds, set out above. Such third parties include:

  1. Evidence Capital affiliates. We may share your personal information within the Evidence Capital group insofar as reasonably necessary for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy.
  2. Companies we introduce you to. We may share your personal information with third parties that we connect you with in connection with our placement activities.
  3. Law enforcement agencies. We may provide personal information to third parties, including anti-fraud organizations, legal, regulatory, or law enforcement authorities in cases of suspected criminal activity or contravention of law, for the detection and prevention of fraud, or when required to satisfy the legal or regulatory requirements of governments, regulatory authorities, or to comply with a court order.
  4. Sub-contractors and agents. We may use other companies to process your personal information (such as for account administration, fraud prevention and detection and marketing) on our behalf. Where we do so, we ensure that such parties are subject to security and confidentiality obligations and are only permitted to process your personal information for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.

We will retain your personal information for as long as it is needed to fulfil the purposes for which it is collected, and any other permissible, related purposes. For example, we may retain certain data to comply with regulatory requirements regarding the retention of data. We may retain your personal information for a longer period in the event of a complaint or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation in respect to our relationship with you.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal information, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal information, the purposes for which we process your personal information and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or other requirements.

The information we store about you will be made available to our staff in the United Kingdom. We may also transmit your information to third parties in a destination outside of the UK and European Economic Area (“EEA”). Where personal information is transferred to and stored in a country outside the UK which is not determined by the European Commission as providing adequate levels of protection for personal information, we take steps to provide appropriate safeguards to protect your personal information, including entering into standard contractual clauses approved by the UK or the European Commission, obliging recipients to protect your personal information.

Please contact us using the details in the “Contact Us” section. If you would like to see a copy of the specific safeguards applied to the export of your personal information.

We have put in place commercially reasonable and appropriate technical and physical security measures to protect your personal information from accidental, unlawful or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure and use.

We have agreements and controls in place with third party service providers requiring that any information we provide to them must be safeguarded and used only for the purpose of providing the service we have requested the company to perform.

Despite these precautions, however, we cannot guarantee the security of information transmitted over the Internet or that unauthorised persons will not obtain access to personal information.


You have certain rights under GDPR in relation to our processing of your personal data and these are, generally:

  1. the right to request access to your personal data;
  2. the right to request rectification of your personal data;
  3. the right to request erasure of your personal data (the “right to be forgotten”);
  4. the right to restrict our processing or use of personal data;
  5. the right to object to our processing or use where we have considered this to be necessary for our legitimate interests (such as in the case of direct marketing activities); 
  6. where relevant, the right to request the portability;
  7. where your consent to processing has been obtained, the right to withdraw your consent at any time; and
  8. the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority.

Please note that the above rights are not always absolute and we may be entitled to refuse requests, wholly or partly, where exceptions under the applicable law apply.

If you exercise any of these rights, we will check your entitlement and respond in most cases within a month (unless we are entitled by law to extend the timeframe by a further 2 months).

Save as described in this Privacy Policy or provided under data protection laws, there is no charge for the exercise of your legal rights. However, if your requests are manifestly unfounded or excessive, in particular because of their repetitive character, we may either: (a) charge a reasonable fee taking into account the administrative costs of providing the information or taking the action requested; or (b) refuse to act on the request.

Where we have reasonable doubts concerning the identity of the person making the request, we may request additional information necessary to confirm your identity.

If you want to exercise your rights, or wish to make a complaint on how we have used your personal information please do so by contacting us via [email protected].

You have the right to make a complaint to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), the UK supervisory authority for data protection issues at or contact their helpline on 0303 123 1113. We would, however, appreciate the chance to deal with your concerns before you approach the ICO so please contact us in the first instance.
