(b) Your rights in connection with Personal Data

Under certain circumstances, and subject to applicable law, you have the right to:

  • Request access to your Personal Data (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the Personal Data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
  • Request correction of the Personal Data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected.

You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your Personal Data where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below).
  • Object to processing of your Personal Data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground. You also have the right to object where we are processing your Personal Data for direct marketing purposes by writing to your Client Relationship Officer or using any opt-out facility specified by us in the relevant marketing communication.
  • Request the restriction of processing of your Personal Data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of Personal Data about you, for example if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it.
  • Request the transfer of your Personal Data to another party (also known as “data portability”).
  • Where we process your personal data on the basis of your consent, withdraw that consent at any time.  Please also note that the withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.

If you want to exercise your rights, as per above, please contact your Client Relationship Officer and/ or contact the Data Protection Officer/ the Privacy Officer of the EFG Entity that supports you by sending a letter.

The exercise of some of these rights may result in an EFG Entity no longer being able to provide a product or service to you.

Finally, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority.

(c) No fee usually required

You will not have to pay a fee to access your Personal Data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee depending on the nature of the request and applicable regulation.

(d) What we may need from you

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access the information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is another appropriate security measure to ensure that Personal Data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.

(e) Queries relating to the processing of your Personal Data

If you have a query regarding the processing of your Personal Data please contact your Client Relationship Officer and/ or the Data Protection Officer/ the Privacy Officer of the EFG Entity that supports you.
