Whilst Platina’s IT providers have the capacity to access any data held on our systems, contractual safeguards are in place to ensure that your personal data are kept confidential. Platina uses third party providers for offsite storage and scanning services, however, any personal details stored are protected by contractual safeguards.

We rely on (i) legal obligations, (ii) contractual obligations, (iii) your consent and (iv) our legitimate interests as the lawful basis on which we collect and use your personal data.
A legitimate interest is when we have a business or commercial reason to use your information, so long as this is not overridden by your own rights and interests. Our legitimate interests are the interests of enabling Platina to carry out its business as a fund manager and investment advisor.
We may transfer your personal information to countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA) only where it is required to comply with legal and regulatory obligations, or where this may be necessary to meet our contractual obligations to you.
This may be necessary if, for example, your and/or our services providers are located outside of the EEA, or if you are based outside of the EEA.
These transfers are subject to special rules under European and UK data protection law.
We will not otherwise transfer your personal data outside of the EEA or to any organisation (or subordinate bodies) governed by public international law or which is set up under any agreement between two or more countries.
