Your privacy is important to us. This Privacy Policy explains what and how we collect, share, use, and protect your personal information, as well as the types of personal information collected, when CLC GROUP LIMITED family of companies (“CLC”) are operating or providing services (collectively, our “services”). Please see below for contact information. Depending on the way you interact with us, the specific financial products or services you ultimately obtain from us, and the jurisdiction in which we do business with you, you may apply other privacy principles or policies.


This Privacy Notice applies to all Personal Information provided to us, both by you or by third parties, and we may use your Personal Information for any of the purposes described in this Privacy Notice or as otherwise stated at the time of collection. Personal Information is any information related to an identified or identifiable natural person.  A “natural person” is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, by name, personal identification number, location data, an identifier, or one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural, or social identity of that natural person. Where “you” or “your” are used in this Privacy Notice, we are referring to the person who is the subject of the Personal Information. CLC processes Personal Information for numerous purposes and the method of collection, lawful basis for processing, use, disclosure, transfer, and retention for each processing purpose may vary.

  • We work hard to protect your information.

  • We take our responsibility to protect the privacy and confidentiality of your information, including personal information, very seriously. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that comply with applicable legal standards to secure such information from unauthorized access and use, accidental or unlawful alteration and destruction, and other unlawful or unauthorized forms of Processing. We hold our employees accountable for complying with relevant policies, procedures, rules and regulations concerning the privacy and confidentiality of information.

  • We want you to understand the type of information we collect and how we use it.​​​

    • We sometimes collect information about you from additional online and offline sources including social media (to the extent you choose to make your personal information public) and commercially available third-party sources, such as credit reporting agencies. We may combine this information with the personal and other information we have collected about you under this Online Privacy Policy.

    • Where we are required to establish a legal basis to process your personal information as described in this Privacy Policy, we will do so on the basis that we have obtained your prior express consent to the processing; we have a legitimate business interest in the processing that is not overridden by your interests, fundamental rights, or freedoms; or the processing is needed to comply with applicable law, to perform under your contract(s) with us, or to protect the vital interests of any individual.

    • We use and otherwise process the information we collect from you to help us deliver our online services; to administer, evaluate and improve our business (including developing new products and services, improving existing products and services, performing data analytics and other research tasks, communicating with you via any means, and performing accounting, auditing, and other internal functions); manage our risks; to market our services and products; and to comply with and enforce applicable laws and regulations, relevant industry standards, contractual obligations and our policies. We also use data that we collect on an aggregated or anonymous basis (such that it does not identify any individuals or clients) for various business purposes, where permissible under applicable laws and regulations.

  • In addition to the personal information described above, we collect certain information about your use of our online services.

We do not seek to collect, access or process sensitive personal information unless it is required or permitted by law; necessary for the detection or prevention of crime; necessary to establish, exercise or defend legal rights; or we have your prior explicit consent. In case of access to or use of your personal sensitive information, the Human Resources Department shall be responsible if the above requirements are met.

  • We aim to collect only what we need, keep it up-to-date and remove it when we no longer need it.

    • We take reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information we process is limited to what we require in connection with the purposes set out in this Policy; it is accurate and, where necessary, kept up to date; and it is erased or rectified without delay if it is inaccurate.

    • We share information with third parties where appropriate to protect against fraud or verify or enforce our terms of use, our other rights, or other applicable policies.
