We will keep Personal Information for as long as is necessary for the purposes for which we collect it. The precise period will depend on the purpose for which we hold your information. In addition, as a regulated financial services institution, there are laws and regulations that apply to us which set minimum periods for retention of Personal Information. We will provide you with further information if appropriate to give you a full picture of how we collect and use your Personal Information.
The number of years varies depending on the nature of the product or service provided – for example, for certain insurance policies it may be necessary to keep the Personal Information for several years after the expiry of the policy. Among other reasons, we retain the information in order to respond to any queries or concerns that may be raised at a later date with respect to the policy or the handling of a claim. Typically, the retention period is six years.
