  • certain regulated professions such as lawyers, notaries or accountant.

These transfers take place within the scope of the Company’s business, when regulatory, legal or contractual provisions authorize it or require it.

Besides the obligations devolving upon them under the agreements signed with the Company, third parties receiving personal data are also required to observe the obligations devolving upon them (as “Data Protection Officer” or “Subcontractor” where appropriate) under the Regulation and, more broadly, under the Data Protection Legislation.

Personal data may be transferred by the Company outside the EEA solely under the conditions provided for by the legal or regulatory provisions applicable. In accordance with the Regulation, the Company shall thus ensure that, for the territory in question, either a decision on suitability previously issued by the European Commission exists, or suitable guarantees enabling personal data protection to be ensured have been put in place.

The Company anticipates that, within the scope of the transfer of funds or transactions on financial instruments, some participating third parties (stock exchange/market, correspondent bank, service providers, etc.), that may be situated outside the EEA will be required to process the personal data required for the performance of such transactions.



The Company stores personal data in accordance with the obligations applicable thereto and during the period necessary to achieve the purposes for which such data has been collected. As a regulated organization, there are laws and regulations that apply to us that set out a minimum period of retention of personal information and data, subject to the legal periods of limitation (as a principle, ten (10) years for commercial matters) and to the situations where applicable laws require or allow Personal Data to be retained for a certain period of time after the termination of the contractual and commercial relationship (such as the legal obligation to keep accounting documents for a period of ten (10) years or AML/CTF related information for a period of five (5) years at least).

As an exception, personal data may be kept once such purposes have been achieved, in order in particular to deal with any complaint, for the purposes of a legal action in progress or on the request of competent authorities. For more information on our specific retention policies please inquire us through our contact details in this notice.

After the end of the retention period or the legal action above mentioned, the Company will delete the personal data.



In the event of data transfers to third countries outside the EEA, the Company has in place the measures provided by Articles 45 and 46 of the GDPR.

If the level of protection of the destination country can be considered adequate, the personal data may be transferred in the same manner as if it was transferred within the EEA. The general principles of the GDPR (e.g. lawfulness of processing, compatibility of the communication of data to a third party with the initial processing activity, information to data subjects) shall be observed in all circumstances.

For service providers and delegates (acting as data processors) located outside of the EEA in the countries without an EU adequacy decision the Company has implemented the appropriate safeguards such as EU standard contract clauses. To obtain a copy of the applicable safeguards, please contact the DPO Department via e-mail or by registered post to the address below.



The Company adopts and maintains appropriate technical or organizational measures enabling it to ensure that it processes personal data in such a way as to guarantee appropriate security, and particularly to protect it against unauthorized or illegal processing, loss, destruction or accidental damage.

Any personal data transfer shall be effected in accordance with the Data Protection Legislation.
