PI we collect about you

PI is information relating to an individual, which can be used either alone or with other sources of information to identify that individual. PI does not include information where the identity of the individual or the specific detail of the information has been removed and is therefore anonymous. SPI is a sub-category of PI that includes PI relating to race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sex life, sexual orientation, political opinions, trade union membership, information about health and genetic and biometric data.

The nature of the information that we collect will depend on the services we provide and our relationship with you. We categorize PI we process as follows (the PI listed for each category are non-exhaustive examples):

Identification data
Full name, title, gender, marital status, date of birth, passport number, driving licence number, national identification number, signature
Contact data
Personal address, telephone number, email address
Electronic Monitoring data
To the extent permitted by law, we may record and monitor your electronic communications with us

Marketing and communication preferences; tracking data relating to whether you have read marketing communications from us
Professional Information data
Position/job title, work address; telephone number; email address

Services data
Payment details to and from you; details of services you have provided to us or we have provided to you

In limited circumstances, and where allowed by law, we may collect information about criminal convictions and offences, when legally required; dietary requirements if we are arranging catering; disability so that we can make reasonable accommodations for you in our buildings; sexual orientation if you provide details of your spouse or partner; political affiliations for us to determine whether you are a politically exposed person.

We collect PI in relation to you in a number of ways, including:
when you provide it to us in connection with a Cargio product or service, such as a completed investment application form
if you are Representative of an organization or entity that is a client or vendor of Cargio and that organization or entity provides us with your PI
throughout the course of our relationship with you, including where you change your details, provide additional PI, or where the services we are providing to you change
from public sources where you have manifestly chosen to make your PI public, including via public profiles on social media
from third parties such as credit reference agencies
from visits to our websites or through logging into any of our online services

We may also create or derive PI such as creating records of your interactions with us, subject to applicable law.

To whom we disclose your PI

In connection with one or more of the purposes outlined in the section ‘Purpose and Legal basis for processing your PI’ above, we may disclose PI in any jurisdiction to:

other members of the Cargio Group;
professional advisors, third parties, agents or independent contractors that provide services to any member of the Cargio Group (such as IT systems providers, platform providers, financial advisors, brokers, consultants (including lawyers and accountants);
goods and services providers (such as providers of marketing services where we are permitted to disclose your personal information to them);
intermediaries, brokers, and other individuals and entities that partner with us;
competent authorities (including any national and/or international regulatory or enforcement body, agency, court or other form of tribunal or tax authority) or their agents where Cargio is required or allowed to do so under applicable law or regulation;
a potential buyer, transferee, merger partner or seller and their advisers in connection with an actual or potential transfer or merger of part or all of Cargio’s business or assets, or any associated rights or interests, or to acquire a business or enter into a merger with it;
credit reference agencies or other organizations that help us to conduct anti-money laundering and anti-terrorist financing checks and to detect fraud and other potential criminal activity;
or any person to whom disclosure is allowed or required by local or foreign law, regulation or any other applicable instrument.

International transfers and transfers to service providers
To provide global services and in the course of running our business, we may transfer PI to a location outside of the country where you reside or where services are provided to you or the organization or entity you work for, including Cargio processing centers in the USA, Hungary, India and Singapore. Although the country to which PI may be transferred may not have the same level of privacy and data protection laws, we apply the same level of security and organizational controls to the processing of PI wherever it is processed. We require by contract that our third party service providers processing PI on our behalf to comply with Cargio’s criteria for PI processing.

If we transfer PI out of the EEA, we ensure a similar level of protection for your PI by ensuring the country to which the PI is transferred is considered by the EU Commission to provide an adequate level of protection, putting in place contractual clauses the EU Commission consider to provide the same level of protection. Marketing and exercising your right to opt-out of marketing

We will not process your PI for marketing purposes if you have informed us you do not wish to receive marketing materials. You can request that we stop processing your PI for marketing purposes at any time by clicking on marketing opt-out links in any electronic marketing materials we send you, by making a request to your usual Cargio contact or by using the contact details set out in the “Contacting Us” section of this Privacy Notice.

PI retention
We will process your PI for as long as is necessary to fulfil the purpose for which it was collected or to comply with legal, regulatory, accounting, reporting, internal policy requirements or for the establishment or defense of legal claims.

PI security
We use a range of physical, electronic and managerial measures to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk of PI processing. These measures include:

education and training of relevant staff to ensure they are aware of our privacy obligations when processing PI as well as training around social engineering, phishing, spear phishing, and password risks;
the ability to ensure the ongoing confidentiality, integrity, availability and resilience of processing systems and services;
the ability to restore the availability and access to PI in a timely manner in the event of a physical or technical incident;
administrative and technical controls to restrict access to PI;
technological security measures, including fire walls, encryption (industry standard SSL encryption with 128-bit key lengths), and anti-virus software;
physical security measures, such building access controls;
external technical assessments, security audits and vendor due diligence;
perimeter security;
segregation of networks;

endpoint security;
real-time monitoring of data leakage controls;

This is to ensure that PI is not disclosed to any person who does not have authority to receive it.
