Non-EEA processing


Non-EEA processing

Your personal information may be transferred to or accessed from other countries and processed for us in those countries on the basis that anyone we pass it to will provide a level of protection equivalent to the Data Protection Laws.

The European Commission determines geographic territories which it considers to provide adequate and appropriate safeguards to Data Processing activity.

Where data is transferred to and processed outside of the EEA, then the data must have appropriate safeguards provided by the controller or processor. Such safeguards may include standard data protection clauses issued by the European Commission.

The majority of personal information collected and managed by Alliance Trust Savings (ATS) is stored and processed in the UK and EEA. However, some information may be processed by us or the third parties we work with outside of the EEA.

ATS will ensure that suppliers that we work with comply with the minimum standards recommended by the European Commission.

ATS may transfer and process personal data outside of the EEA for the following purposes:

  • the management and execution of marketing campaigns and customer communications using cloud based applications
  • platform support by software providers
  • to meet our anti-money laundering obligations, including but not limited to, customer identity verification, screening and customer transaction monitoring; anti-fraud processes

Please refer to our Data Protection and Privacy Policy if you require greater detail on your rights or ATS’s obligations.
