This is required as a result of a data protection law arising pursuant to a European Union data protection directive. Businesses in European Union countries must comply with national laws enacted in light of their country's interpretation of the EU data protection directive.
The legislation seeks to ensure that all personal data held by businesses and organisations is both accurate and suitably protected in order to ensure there is no misuse of personal data relating to an individual held by the business or organisation.
Accordingly, we endeavour to ensure that when processing your personal data we are protecting both our and your interests by complying with the relevant legislation.
When you visit this website and in the course of our providing services to you, we may collect personal data about you when you are asked to provide data (e.g. name, e-mail address and mailing address) or when you e-mail, phone, or otherwise contact us.
We may also collect personal data about you indirectly; for example, we may collect personal data from third parties who provide us with information about you.
We may process personal data collected via this website or otherwise for the purposes of administering the website, responding to queries or provide services to you at your request, updating our records and databases, improving the personalisation of our services to you, maintaining contact data about you or a third party (for example, your employer), informing you of features, services, products, fund launches and related information from GLG, any other entities within the Man Group plc group of entities (“Man”) or third parties which may be of interest to you and otherwise to enable us to perform any agreement with you, your employer or any other relevant third party. We will not share your personal data with others for marketing purposes, however, unless you have given us your permission.
In addition, if we appoint third parties to host, maintain, manage, or to provide other services in relation to the website then your personal data may be accessed and used by these third parties to the extent necessary to fulfil their hosting, maintenance, managerial, and/or other functions.
You may be able to update some of the data we hold about you or third parties directly yourself. If you are acting as an intermediary or otherwise on behalf of a third party or supply us with information regarding a third party (such as your employer or a client company), you undertake that you are an authorised representative or agent of such third party and that you have obtained all necessary consents from such third party to the collection, processing, use and disclosure by us of their personal data.
The data may be disclosed to certain types of staff within GLG and Man (i.e. staff whose job it is to process your enquiries and orders or otherwise to administer the website, and those staff involved in the provision of GLG or other Man services and products which may be of interest to you).
Because of the international nature of this website and the nature of GLG’s activities, personal data may be transferred internationally throughout Man worldwide for the purposes described above (including to Switzerland and Ireland).
