This privacy notice has been issued by W&Co. to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which came into effect on 25 May 2018. This document replaces any Fair Processing Notice issued under the Data Protection Act 1988 with effect from 25 May 2018.

Email addresses that you provide to us via the website will be used for the sole purpose of sending you documents or notifications about updates to the website.

It is possible that W&Co.’s staff and partners/staff of adviser firms may take laptops and smartphones with them on trips outside of the UK and/or the EEA, indirectly causing data to be sent outside of the EEA.
We have received guidance that as long as the information stays with the individual on the laptop/smartphone and their employer has an effective procedure to deal with security and the other risks of using laptops (including the extra risks of international travel), it is reasonable to conclude that adequate data protection exists.
Your personal data will not be directly transferred to another country unless you request for this to be done.
