What personal data does the Firm collect and why? 

In the course of interacting with or providing services to you, the Firm may collect information  that is considered personal information (e.g., name, contact details, address, passport number,  driving licence).  

As a client, contact or employee of Segantii, we will require some personal information in order  to verify your identity and have the applicable relationship with you. Some of this information  may be required to satisfy legal obligations (e.g., to comply with obligations arising under the  money laundering regulations) whereas other information may be required in connection with the provision of services to you. The information collected will vary depending on your  relationship with the Firm, but typically includes: 

  • Personal information: Such as your name, date of birth, passport number or national  insurance number; and 
  • Contact information: Including your residential address, telephone number and email  address. 

Where does the Firm store my personal data? 

The Firm will typically store your personal data electronically within its computer systems.

The Firm has comprehensive policies, procedures and systems in place to ensure your personal  data is kept safe and secure, with these including: 

  • Data encryption; 
  • Firewalls; 
  • Intrusion detection; 
  • 24/7 physical protection of the facilities where your data is stored; 
  • Background checks for personnel that access physical facilities; and  
  • Security procedures across all service operations.  

How long does the Firm retain personal data?  

As a regulated entity, the Firm is required to maintain its books and records for a prescribed  period (five years from either the ceasing of a business relationship, or, in the case of non clients, from the making of a record – or alternatively, for seven years, where specifically  requested to do so by the FCA, or such other period as may be required by an applicable  regulatory authority). As such, information that falls in scope of either of these requirements  is retained in line with the mandated timeframe.  

Any information that is outside the scope of this requirement will be retained whilst relevant  and useful, and destroyed where this ceases to be the case or where the data subject  specifically requests this, and provided that there is no additional legal or regulatory obligation or need to maintain it further.
