Information we collect and use

  • Information connected to your service with us e.g. national insurance numbers.
  • Information about your contact with us e.g. meetings, phone calls, emails / letters.
  • Information classified as ‘sensitive’ personal information e.g. relating to your health, marital or civil partnership status. This information will only be collected and used where it’s needed to provide the product or service you have requested or to comply with our legal obligations.
  • Information you may provide us about other people e.g. joint applicants or beneficiaries.

Where we collect your information

We may collect your personal information directly from you, from a variety of sources, including:

  • an application form for a service.
  • phone conversations with us.
  • emails or letters you send to us.
  • meetings with us.

We may also collect personal information on you from places such as business directories and other commercially or publicly available sources e.g. to check or improve the information we hold (like your address) or to give better contact information if we are unable to contact you directly.

What we collect and use your information for

We take your privacy seriously and we will only ever collect and use information which is personal to you where it is necessary, fair and lawful to do so. We will collect and use your information only where:

  • It is necessary to provide the product or service you have requested e.g. to complete your Tax Return. We will require some personal information including your name, address, date of birth, bank account details.
  • It is necessary for us to meet our legal or regulatory obligations and for the detection and prevention of fraud.
  • It is in the legitimate interests of a third party e.g. sharing information with your employer’s adviser for the governance of a pension scheme of which you are a member.

If you do not wish us to collect and use your personal information in these ways, it may mean that we will be unable to provide you with our services.

Who we may share your information with

We may share your information with third parties for the reasons outlined in 'What we collect and use your information for.'

These third parties include:

  • Your adviser or employer.
  • Our regulators and Supervisory Authority e.g. the Information Commissioner’s Office for the UK (the ICO).
  • Law enforcement, credit and identity check agencies for the prevention and detection of crime.
  • HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) e.g. for the processing of tax returns.
  • Pension Companies e.g. for processing employees payroll and pension auto enrolment.

We will never sell your details to someone else. Whenever we share your personal information, we will do so in line with our obligations to keep your information safe and secure.

Where your information is processed

All of your information is processed in the UK and European Economic Area (EEA).

How we protect your information

We take information and system security very seriously and we strive to comply with our obligations at all times. Any personal information which is collected, recorded or used in any way, whether on paper, online or any other media, will have appropriate safeguards applied in line with our data protection obligations.

Your information is protected by controls designed to minimise loss or damage through accident, negligence or deliberate actions. Our employees also protect sensitive or confidential information when storing or transmitting information electronically and must undertake annual training on this.

Our security controls are aligned to industry standards and good practice; providing a controlled environment that effectively manages risks to the confidentiality, integrity and availability of your information.

How long we keep your information

We will keep your personal information only where it is necessary to provide you with our services while you are a customer.

We may also keep your information after this period but only where required to meet our legal or regulatory obligations. The length of time we keep your information for these purposes will vary depending on the obligations we need to meet.

Your individual rights

You have several rights in relation to how Jackson & Graham uses your information. They are:
