About Dodd Wealthcare

Dodd Wealthcare Privacy Notice

Dodd Wealthcare Limited is an Appointed Representative of Network Direct Limited.   This Privacy Notice explains how we use any personal information we collect about you.

 

What information do we collect about you?

We collect information about you when you engage us for investment/pension/mortgage and protection advice. This information will relate to your personal and financial circumstances.  It may also include special categories of personal data such as data about your health, if this is necessary for the provision of our services.

We may also collect information when you voluntarily complete client surveys or provide feedback to us.

 

Information about connected individuals

We may need to gather personal information about your close family members and dependants in order to provide our service to you effectively. In such cases it will be your responsibility to ensure you have the consent of the people concerned to pass their information on to us. We’ll provide a copy of this Privacy Notice for them or, where appropriate, ask you to pass the privacy information to them.

Why do we need to collect and use your personal data?

The primary legal basis we intend to use for the processing of your data is for the performance of our contract with you. The information we collect about you is essential for us to be able to carry out the services you require from us effectively.

How will we use the information about you?

We collect information about you in order to provide you with the services for which you engage us.

 

Who might we share your information with?

If you agree, we may email you about other products or services we think may be of interest to you.

We won’t share your information for marketing purposes with other companies.

In order to deliver our services to you effectively, we may send your details to third parties such as those we engage for professional compliance, accountancy or legal services, as well as product and platform providers we use to arrange financial products for you.

Where third parties are involved in processing your data we’ll have a contract in place with them to ensure the nature and purpose of the processing is clear, that they are subject to a duty of confidence in processing your data and that they’ll only act in accordance with our written instructions.

Where it’s necessary for your personal data to be forwarded to a third party we’ll use appropriate security measures to protect your personal data in transit.

To fulfil our obligations in respect of prevention of money-laundering and other financial crime, we may send your details to third party agencies for identity verification purposes.

 

How long do we keep hold of your information?

During the course of our relationship with you we’ll retain personal data which is necessary to provide services to you. We’ll take all reasonable steps to keep your personal data up to date throughout our relationship.

We’re also subject to regulatory requirements to retain your data for specified minimum periods.

These are, generally:

  • Five years for investment business
  • Three years for mortgage business
  • Indefinitely for pension transfers and opt-out business
  • Three years for insurance business

These are minimum periods, during which we have a legal obligation to retain your records.

We reserve the right to retain data for longer where we believe it’s in our legitimate interests to do so.  In any case, we’ll not keep your personal data for longer than the regulatory requirements after our relationship with you has ended.

You have the right to request deletion of your personal data. We’ll comply with this request, subject to the restrictions of our regulatory obligations and legitimate interests as noted above.
