Privacy law is changing – what does this mean for you?

EQ Investors (EQ) has always treated the storing, processing and management of personal data with the upmost importance. The upcoming regulatory changes will seek to only further enhance the protection of your personal data.

What’s changing?

GDPR will give you more control over how your data is used, including how you’re contacted, how you can access your personal data and your rights to have incorrect personal data rectified.

Key changes

The changes are designed to harmonise data privacy laws for all EU countries and citizens:

Brexit and GDPR

UK organisations handling personal data will still need to comply with GDPR, regardless of Brexit. GDPR comes into force before the UK leaves the EU, and the government has confirmed that the Regulation will apply, a position that has been stated by the Information Commissioner’s Office [1] (ICO).

What do we do with your data?

At EQ we hold personal data on our systems so that we can provide clients with the services and account management they have requested, and to comply with regulations. We also hold some personal details for non-clients that we use for marketing. These details are always gathered with the explicit consent of the individual, and are securely deleted if this consent is withdrawn.*

For further details on what kinds of information we process, what we use it for, and how we keep it safe please see our privacy policy [2].

Further information

Information and guidance on GDPR can also be found on the ICO website [3].

If you have any questions or concerns about our use of your personal information or wish to request a copy of the personal data we hold about you please contact:
