  • It is important to point out that we may amend this Privacy Policy from time to time.

  • What kind of personal data do we collect?

    • CLIENTS: In order to provide the best possible services and the most accurate advice and information to you, we need to process certain information about you. We only ask for details that will genuinely help us to help you, such as your name, age, contact details, your employment background, immigration status, nationality/citizenship information, financial information, information about members of your family (as may be appropriate), extra information which you may choose to tell us, IP address, dates, times and frequency with which you access our services, CCTV footage if you attend our premises.

    • To the extent that you access our website we will also collect certain data from you. We use “cookies”. A “cookie” is a bite-sized piece of data that is stored on your computer’s hard drive. They are used by nearly all websites and do not harm your system. We use them to track your activity to help ensure you get the smoothest possible experience when visiting our website. We can use the information from cookies to ensure we present you with options tailored to your preferences on your next visit. We can also use cookies to analyse traffic and for advertising purposes. If you want to check or change what types of cookies you accept, this can usually be altered within your browser settings.

    • If you don’t want to receive cookies that are not strictly necessary to perform basic features of our site, you may choose to opt-out by changing your browser settings.

    • Most web browsers will accept cookies but if you would rather we didn’t collect data in this way you can choose to accept all or some, or reject cookies in your browser’s privacy settings. However, rejecting all cookies means that you may not be able to take full advantage of all our website’s features. Each browser is different, so check the “Help” menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.

    • For more information generally on cookies, including how to disable them, please refer to You will also find details on how to delete cookies from your computer.

    • WEBSITE USERS: We collect a limited amount of data from our Website Users which we use to help us to improve your experience when using our website and to help us manage the services we provide. This includes information such as how you use our website, the frequency with which you access our website, and the times that our website is most popular.

    A number of elements of the personal data we collect from you are required to enable us to fulfil our contractual duties to you or to others. Other items may simply be needed to ensure that our relationship can run smoothly. Depending on the type of personal data in question and the grounds on which we may be processing it, should you decline to provide us with such data, we may not be able to fulfil our contractual requirements or, in extreme cases, may not be able to continue with our relationship.

    How do we collect your personal data?

    • CLIENT DATA: There are two main ways in which we collect your personal data:

    1. Directly from you; and
    2. From third parties (e.g., introducers) and other limited sources (e.g. online and offline
    3. media).
    4. To the extent that you access our website or read or click on an email from us, we may also collect certain data automatically or through you providing it to us.

    • WEBSITE USERS: We collect your data automatically via cookies when you visit our website, in line with cookie settings in your browser. We will also collect data from you when you contact us via the website, for example by using the chat function. How do we use your personal data?

    • CLIENT DATA: The main reason for using information about Clients is to ensure that the contractual arrangements between us can properly be implemented so that the relationship can run smoothly. The more information we have about you, your family, your financial position and other information, the more bespoke we can make our service

    and provide you with the best possible service.

    • WEBSITE USERS: We use your data to help us to improve your experience of using our website, for example by analysing your recent searches and questions that you may ask in the chat to help us send you information and offers that we think you’ll be interested in. We may also use data from your use of our websites to enhance other aspects of our communications with, or service to, you.

    • Please note that communications to and from our staff, including emails, may be reviewed as part of internal or external investigations or litigation.

    Who do we share your personal data with?

    • CLIENT DATA: We will share your data primarily to ensure that we provide you with a best possible and tailored service to you. Unless you specify otherwise, we may share your information with any of our group companies and associated third parties such as our service providers to help us meet these aims.

    • PEOPLE WHOSE DATA WE RECEIVE FROM CLIENTS, SUCH AS FAMILY MEMBERS, ASSOCIATED PARTIES: Unless you specify otherwise, we may share your information with any of our group companies and associated third parties such as our service providers and organisations to whom we provide services.

    • WEBSITE USERS: Unless you specify otherwise, we may share your information with providers of web analytics services, marketing automation platforms and social media services to make sure any advertising you receive is targeted to you.

    How do we safeguard your personal data?

    • We care about protecting your information. That’s why we put in place appropriate measures that are designed to prevent unauthorised access to, and misuse of, your personal data.

    How long do we keep your personal data for?

    • If we have not had meaningful contact with you (or, where appropriate, the company you are working for or with) for a period of two years, we will Delete your personal data from our systems unless we believe in good faith that the law or other regulation requires us to preserve it (for example, because of our obligations to tax authorities or in connection with any anticipated litigation).

    How can you access, amend or take back the personal data that you have given to us?

    • Even if we already hold your personal data, you still have various rights in relation to it. To get in touch about these, please contact us. We will seek to deal with your request without undue delay, and in any event in accordance with the requirements of any applicable laws. Please note that we may keep a record of your communications to help us resolve any issues which you raise.

    • Right to object: If we are using your data because we deem it necessary for our legitimate interests to do so, and you do not agree, you have the right to object. We will respond to your request within 30 days (although we may be allowed to extend this period in certain cases). Generally, we will only disagree with you if certain limited conditions apply.

    • Right to withdraw consent: Where we have obtained your consent to process your personal data for certain activities (for example, for profiling your suitability for certain roles), or consent to market to you, you may withdraw your consent at any time.

    • Data Subject Access Requests (DSAR): Just so it’s clear, you have the right to ask us to confirm what information we hold about you at any time, and you may ask us to modify, update or delete such information. At this point we may comply with your request or, additionally do one of the following:

    – we may ask you to verify your identity, or ask for more information about your request; and

    – where we are legally permitted to do so, we may decline your request, but we will explain why if we do so.

    • Right to erasure: In certain situations (for example, where we have processed your data unlawfully), you have the right to request us to “erase” your personal data. We will respond to your request within 30 days (although we may be allowed to extend this period in certain cases) and will only disagree with you if certain limited conditions apply. If we do agree to your request, we will delete your data but will generally assume that you would prefer us to keep a note of your name on our register of individuals who would prefer not to be contacted. That way, we will minimise the chances of you being contacted in the future where your data are collected in unconnected circumstances. If you would prefer us not to do this, you are free to say so.

    • Right of data portability: If you wish, you have the right to transfer your data from us to another data controller. We will help with this – either by directly transferring your data for you, or by providing you with a copy in a commonly used machine-readable format.

    • Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority: You also have the right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority.

    • If your interests or requirements change, you can unsubscribe from part or all of our marketing content by clicking the unsubscribe link in the email, or by updating your preferences through our preference centre on the Oracle Welbeck Partners website.
