Please note that the following terms set out below will apply to the way in which Ravenscroft processes your Personal Data when acting as a data controller.

Purposes of processing and legal basis for processing

Ravenscroft may process your Personal Data for the following purposes:

  • Ravenscroft will itself (or through a third party e.g. credit reference agency) process certain information about you or your directors, officers and employees and your beneficial owners (if applicable) in order to carry out credit checks and anti-money laundering checks and related actions which Ravenscroft considers appropriate to meet any legal obligations imposed on Ravenscroft relating to the prevention of fraud, money laundering, terrorist financing, bribery, corruption, tax evasion and to prevent the provision of financial and other services to persons who may be subject to economic or trade sanctions, on an on-going basis, in accordance with Ravenscroft's anti-money laundering procedures;

  • to provide the Services to you and/or for Ravenscroft's internal administration;

  • to monitor and record calls for quality, business analysis, training and related purposes in order to pursue the legitimate interests of Ravenscroft to improve its service delivery,

and which are necessary to comply with a legal obligation and/or which are necessary for Ravenscroft's legitimate interests indicated above.

Recipients of data and international transfer of data

The disclosure of personal information to the third parties set out above may involve the transfer of data to the United States of America and other jurisdictions outside the EEA. Such countries may not have the same data protection laws as your jurisdiction.

Ravenscroft will not transfer Personal Data to persons located outside the EEA until, if required by applicable Data Protection Law, that person has entered into an agreement with Ravenscroft that includes the standard contractual clauses (known as model contract clauses) that are recognised by the European Commission as offering adequate safeguards in relation to data protection.

Retention of personal information and security

Your personal information will be retained for as long as required:

  • for the purposes for which the personal information was collected;

  • in order to establish or defend legal rights or obligations or to satisfy any reporting or accounting obligations; and/or

  • as required by data protection laws and any other applicable laws or regulatory requirements.

We will ensure that the personal information that we hold is subject to appropriate security measures.
