The types of data we may collect about you mainly depends on the relation that we have with you, meaning whether you are one of our clients (or a prospective client), a browser of our website or a recipient of our news and insights via email.

In the case that you are a client of ours, or a prospective client, the data we collect focuses on information which is necessary for performing the services you have requested from us, including the performance of our contractual obligations to you, or required to be collected for the purposes of our compliance with any legal, regulatory, contractual, tax, accounting or reporting requirements, such as data collected during our background checks to accept you as a client in accordance with the applicable Know-Your-Client (KYC) and anti-money laundering procedures, or your details relating to the payment of our invoices. We also use your personal data in our correspondence with you, which may relate to the services we provide to you or to services which we consider of interest to you, or to ensure that our records are kept accurate and up-to-date, and to ensure your safety and security when you visit our offices.

In the case that you submit an application to work with us, you will voluntarily be providing us with documents necessary to process your application, the most important being your curriculum vitae, which typically includes your contact details, employment history, educational background and references, along with any other information you choose to share with us in order to assess the particular candidate.
