How we use your information
Natrium Capital collects and processes your personal data for legitimate Business Management and Human Resource purposes. This may be because we need the data to perform the contract that we have or are about to enter into with you, where it is necessary for our legitimate interests and that your legitimate interests and fundamental human rights do not override those interests or where we need the information for legal or regulatory reasons. Such circumstances include:

  • providing services to our clients and potential clients;

  • fulfilling contractual obligations with our clients;
  • contacting you from time to time for research purposes. We may contact you by email, phone or mail;
  • internal record-keeping;

  • for compliance with legal, regulatory and tax reporting obligations;
  • marketing our related products and services directly to you, and advise you of any updates to our services. Where we do so you will be able to unsubscribe at any time from receiving any further communications from us;

Where we need to collect personal data by law, or under the terms of a contract we have with you and you fail to provide that data when requested, we may not be able to perform the contract we have or are trying to enter into with you. In this case, we may not be able to provide the requested service to you but we will notify you if this is the case at the time.

Disclosure of your personal data
We may disclose Personal Information we have collected from or about you to such persons or organisations who may use your personal information for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy, including:

  • any purpose disclosed by us when you provide the information;
  • contractors, service providers and other third parties we use to support our business;
  • if we reasonably believe that we are required or authorised by law or by Regulators to do so; or
  • with your consent.

We may have to share your personal data with our affiliates and associates, both inside and outside the European Economic Area (the “EEA”). We may also need to transfer personal data to third parties, including third parties based outside the EEA, such as other advisors, accountants and third parties involved in your matters.

We require all third parties, including our affiliates, to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes and only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.

Data Security
We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need or legal or Regulatory reason to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.

Data Transfers
We may transfer the Personal Data we collect about you to recipients in countries other than the country in which the information originally was collected. Where you are based in the UK or elsewhere in the EU, this includes transfers outside of the UK and the European Economic Area (“EEA”). Those countries may not have the same data protection laws as the country in which you initially provided the information.

It is our policy only to keep records of your personal data for as long as required under the legal obligations of delivering a service to you, or as required by relevant authorities or other legislation, whichever requirement is longer.

Legitimate interests
The GDPR states (in Article 6(1)(f)) that we can process your data where it is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us except where such interests are overridden by your interests or fundamental rights or freedoms. Legitimate Interest means the interest of our business in conducting and managing our business to enable us to give you the best service/product and the best and most secure experience.
It is reasonable to expect that if we have had a professional relationship with you or you have contacted us about a job or we find that you are looking for employment or you have posted your professional CV information on a job board or professional networking site, or we have been given your name as an emergency contact or as a referee, you are happy for us to use your personal data to contact you for a relevant reason. If you don’t want any further contact with us you can ask us to stop by contacting us using the details at the end of this Privacy Notice.

Our website may contain links to other websites of interest. However, once you have used these links to leave our site, you should note that we do not have any control over that other website. Therefore, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide while visiting such sites and such sites are not governed by this privacy statement.
