Protection of personal information
Any personal information provided by the client to the Company will be treated as confidential and shared only within the Company and its affiliates and will not be disclosed to any third party except under any regulatory or legal proceedings. In case such disclosure is required to be made by law or any regulatory authority, it will be made on a ‘need-to-know’ basis, unless otherwise instructed by the regulatory authority. Under such circumstances, the Company shall expressly inform the third party regarding the confidential nature of the information.
The transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. We cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our online services and any transmission is at your own risk.
To try to prevent this, we use both GeoTrust Secure Socket Layer (SSL) and Transport Layer Security (TLS) encryption technology in order to protect the information that you submit to us. This type of technology is designed to protect you from having your information intercepted by anyone other than Triangleview Investments Ltd during its transmission. We also use other safeguards such as firewalls, authentication systems (e.g. passwords and personal identification numbers) and access control mechanisms to restrict unauthorised access to systems and data. Once we have received your information, we will take reasonable steps to use procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.
We use a combination of secure computer storage facilities and paper-based files and other records and, irrespective of the format of the information, take steps to protect the personal information we hold from interference, misuse, loss, unauthorised access, modification or unauthorised disclosure.
Some electronic communications through non-secure web platforms may not be secure, virusfree or successfully delivered. If you communicate with us using a non-secure web platform, you assume the risks that such communications between us are intercepted, not received, delayed, corrupted or are received by persons other than the intended recipient.
You can help us to keep your information secure. Remember that any username or password in relation to our websites is personal to you and should not be made available to any other person. You should stop using your username and password and notify us immediately if you suspect that someone else may be using them.

Non-affiliated third parties

The Company may also disclose information as necessary to credit reporting or collection agencies as reasonably required in order to provide the services to Company and/or its clients.

Restriction of responsibility
Use of “COOKIES”
Accessing and updating your Personal Data
You have the right to request a copy of the personal data about you which we hold in order to correct any inaccuracies and to object to our using your personal data for a marketing purpose, and this is known as a Subject Access Request.
To do this, you should contact us using the details set out below in the “Contact Us” section. There is no fee for requesting that your personal information is corrected, however in processing your request, our reasonable costs may be recovered if necessary if the relevant legislation allows. This covers such things as locating the information and supplying it to you.
Where we refuse to action your request to correct your personal information, you also have the right to request that a statement be associated with your personal information noting that you disagree with its accuracy.
Known as the ‘right to be forgotten’ you may request that we delete all personal data about you which we hold, although we are limited by the law with regards to who this applies.
The conditions for erasure, as outlined in article 17 of GDPR, include the data no longer being relevant to original purposes for processing, or clients withdrawing consent.
For the Company, this only apples to data held for non-Live accounts. We are legally obligated NOT to delete any data for clients who have had live accounts with us for at least 7 years.
GDPR introduces data portability, which is the right for a client to receive the personal data concerning them, which they have previously provided, in a ‘commonly use and machinereadable format’ and have the right to transmit that data to another data controller. This means that if requested by a client, the Company will put all their data onto a CSV file and if requested send that file to another company.
With the introduction of the GDPR you have additional rights with regard to your Personal Data. Some of these may not be applicable to you due to additional regulatory obligations placed upon us which we are required to meet for all Live accounts that have been opened.
• Access to your Personal Data You have the right to request a copy of the personal information that we hold about you, and if you wish to exercise that right please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
• Correction of Personal Data You can make a request for us to correct any personal data that we are processing about you which is incorrect.
• Right of erasure You can request that we erase your personal data if there is no reason for us to continue using it. This right only applies in certain circumstances, and it is not a guaranteed or absolute right, as we have regulatory and legal obligations in certain circumstances to continue holding Personal Data for at least 7 years.
• Right to data portability This right allows you to obtain a copy of your Personal Data which we hold in a format that will enable you or us to transfer it to another organisation. Multiple requests of this type may incur a fee to cover reasonable expenses.
• Right to restrict processing of personal data You have the right in certain circumstances to request that we suspend our processing of your personal data. For example, you have the right to opt out of Marketing emails. Where we suspend our processing of your Personal Data we will still be permitted to store your Personal Data, but any other processing of this information will require your consent, subject to certain exemptions.
• Right to object to processing of Personal Data You have the right to object to our use of your Personal Data which is processed on the basis of our legitimate interests. However, we may continue to process your personal data, despite your objection, where there are compelling legitimate grounds to do so or we need to process your personal data in connection with any legal claims.
• Rights relating to automated decision making and profiling You have the right not to be subject to a decision which is based solely on automated processing (without human involvement) where that decision produces a legal effect or otherwise significantly affects you. This right means you can request that we involve one of our employees or representatives in the decision-making process.
