We may change this privacy notice from time to time without prior notice to you. Any changes will be effective immediately upon posting to our Site.

We may collect personal data about you through: (i) information provided directly to us by you, or another person on your behalf; (ii) information we obtain through or in connection with the provision of products and services; (iii) through our websites (v) recording and monitoring of telephone conversations and electronic communications with you.
We also may receive your personal information from third parties or other sources, such as our affiliates, publicly accessible databases or registers, tax authorities, governmental agencies and supervisory authorities, credit agencies, fraud prevention and detection agencies, or other publicly accessible sources, such as the Internet.
/ Using your personal data: the legal basis and purposes
We may process your personal data for the purposes of administering the relationship between you and us (including communications and reporting), direct marketing of our products and services, monitoring and analysing our activities, and complying with applicable legal or regulatory requirements (including anti-money laundering, fraud prevention, tax reporting, sanctions compliance, or responding to requests for information from supervisory authorities with competent jurisdiction over our business). Your personal data will be processed in accordance with Data Protection Law and may be processed with your consent, upon your instruction, or for any of the purposes set out herein, including where we or a third-party consider there to be any other lawful purpose to do so.
Where personal data is required to satisfy a statutory obligation (including compliance with applicable anti-money laundering or sanctions requirements) or a contractual requirement, failure to provide such information may result in us being unable to provide services to you. Where there is suspicion of unlawful activity, failure to provide personal data may result in the submission of a report to the relevant law enforcement agency or supervisory authority.
/ How we may share your personal data
We may disclose information about you to our affiliates or third parties for the purpose of providing services to us (e.g. accountants, professional advisors, IT and communications providers), for our everyday business purposes, such as to enable that we can provide services to you, or to respond to court orders and legal investigations. We will also release information about you if you direct us to do so.
We may share your information with our affiliates for direct marketing purposes, such as offers of products and services to you by us or our affiliates. You may prevent this type of sharing by contacting us as described below (see “Who to contact about this Privacy Notice”). We may also disclose information about your transactions and experiences with us to our affiliates for their everyday business purposes.
/ Monitoring of communications
We may record and monitor telephone conversations and electronic communications with you for the purposes of: (i) ascertaining the details of instructions given in connection with the delivery of our services to you; (ii) ensuring compliance with our regulatory obligations; and/or (iii) detecting and preventing the commission of financial crime.
/ Retention periods and security measures
We will not retain personal data for longer than is necessary in relation to the purpose for which it is collected, subject to Data Protection Law. How long we will hold your personal data will be determined by: (a) the purpose of which we are using it- we will need to keep the data for as long as it is necessary for that purpose; and (b) legal and regulatory obligations- laws or regulation may set the minimum period for which we have to keep your personal data. From time to time, we will review the purpose for which personal data has been collected and decide whether to retain it or to delete if it no longer serves any purpose to us.
To protect your personal information from unauthorized access and use, we apply organizational and technical security measures in accordance with Data Protection Law. These measures include computer safeguards and secured files and buildings. We will notify you of any material personal data breaches affecting you in accordance with the requirements of Data Protection Law.
/ International transfers
Because of the international nature of PWP, personal data may be transferred outside your home country, such as to jurisdictions where we conduct business or have a service provider, including countries that may not have the same level of data protection as that afforded by your own. In such cases, we will take appropriate measures to ensure your personal information is handled as described in this privacy notice.
/ Your rights
Federal law gives you the right to limit only the following information sharing: (1) sharing with affiliates for everyday business purposes information about your creditworthiness; and (2) sharing with non-affiliates for the purpose of marketing products or services to you. If you would like to limit any of the foregoing sharing purposes, please contact us in writing at the address below.
You may contact us at any time to limit our sharing of your personal information.
