Using your information to provide services:

Simpil offers a wide range of services and we collect and hold personal information that identifies clients, intermediaries, suppliers and other third parties linked to our clients.   The types and amount of information we collect differs depending on your relationship with us.  We only collect the data we need in order to provide the services you have asked for, or that we need in order to fulfil our legal or regulatory obligations in relation to those services.  If we need to collect additional information we will explain why we need it.

You are not obliged to provide any of the information we ask you for, but if you choose not to we may be unable to provide you with services or respond to your enquiries.

 

There are times when we are under a legal obligation to collect your personal information, including for:

  • Preventing financial crime, evasion of tax, and the funding of terrorism

  • Identifying politically or commercially exposed persons, or those with a significant exposure to the media

  • FATCA/CRS reporting

 

There are occasions where it is in our legitimate interests to collect and process your information, for example:

  • Analyzing details of the number of visits to our website and the pages visitors view allows us to update and improve it.  This allows us to refine the site and make your visits to our website more interesting and informative.

  • To make you aware of additional or new products that we feel could be of benefit to you and will complement the services we already provide.

Sharing your information with other organizations

In the usual course of our business, we use third party organizations to support the essential delivery of our services.  Under these circumstances Simpil remains responsible for the security and privacy of your information and we regularly review all third parties’ security measures to ensure they meet the same standards you expect from Simpil.  All third party organizations operate under contracts that restrict their use of your personal information to providing the services we have employed them for.

The services they provide include:

  • providing and supporting the IT systems in which your information is stored

  • transportation and storage of information and confidential destruction

  • administering bulk email campaigns for information or marketing purposes

 

Using your contact details

From time to time, we will send you important notices about the products or services you have asked us to provide, changes to our policies or terms and conditions, or changes to laws or regulations that could affect the service we provide.  This is important information that keeps you informed about the products or services you have asked us to provide.

We may also send you emails containing newsletters and articles, information about additional products or services provided by Simpil, or invitations to events we are organizing, attending or sponsoring.  You can opt-out of receiving these messages by contacting us here or by clicking on the unsubscribe link in those emails.

We never sell or lease your personal information or share it with other organizations.

 

Storing and deleting your information​

The amount of time we keep your personal information will vary depending on your relationship with Simpil.  In some circumstances, there is a legal or regulatory requirement to keep information for a specific amount of time, although this will be extended if there is ongoing legal action that overrides the normal retention period.  Where there is no regulatory or legal requirement, we assess how long we reasonably need to keep your information in order to deal with ongoing queries.

Keeping your information secure

We take the security of personal information and confidential documents extremely seriously.  Simpil complies with data protection legislation in the jurisdiction in which we operate and we have put in place appropriate safeguards to prevent unauthorized access or unlawful use of confidential information. 

We restrict access to personal information to Simpil employees, contractors and agents who need to know that information in order to process it for us.  They are subject to strict contractual confidentiality obligations and they may be disciplined or their contract terminated if they fail to meet these obligations.
