Privacy & Cookies Policy
We will only use information from which you can be identified ("Personal Information") provided to us, or otherwise obtained by us, as set out in this Policy. We endeavour to ensure that your Personal Information is handled in accordance with "Data Protection Legislation". References to "Data Protection Legislation" in this Policy mean any law applicable from time to time relating to the processing of personal data and/or privacy, as in force at the date of this Agreement or as re-enacted, applied, amended, superseded, repealed or consolidated, including without limitation, the UK Data Protection Act 1998, the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679, and the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003, in each case including any legally binding regulations, direction and orders issued from time to time under or in connection with any such law.
By visiting and/or contacting us through the Website (or otherwise engaging with us), you acknowledge that we may collect, use and transfer your Personal Information as set out in this Policy. LPEQ reserves the right to change this Policy from time to time and you should, therefore, check this page frequently to ensure that you are happy with any changes.

1. Personal Information that we collect from you
When you engage with us (e.g. by visiting or making an enquiry through the Website), you may provide Personal Information about yourself including your name and contact details (e.g. your address, email address and telephone number). Where you make use of our Website we may also collect information about your use of the Website (e.g. your IP address and choice of web browser).
Some of this Personal Information is collected and processed so we can answer your enquiry, some for the purpose of legal compliance and some for the purposes of our legitimate business interests (namely to carry out and improve our business, analyse the use of our Website and services and support visitors to the Website).
Personal Information that we receive from other sources
We may receive information from third parties who collect Personal Information from you and pass it on to us. Where this is the case the third party is responsible for obtaining the relevant consents from you to ensure you are happy with the ways in which your Personal Information will be used.
What we do with your Personal Information
We will only use your Personal Information in order to (a) supply the investment services or information you have requested and correspond with you, (b) provide support to you in respect of these services, (c) improve our Website and services, and (d) for our internal business processes.
If you change your mind about us using your Personal Information in the ways described in this Policy, please let us know by contacting us at Ask@LPEQ.com
How we share your Personal Information
In addition, it may be necessary to disclose your Personal Information if we are under a duty to disclose your Personal Information in order to comply with any legal obligation (such as AML obligations), or protect the rights, property, or safety of LPEQ, LPEQ's contractors, members, directors, employees or other personnel. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for the purposes of fraud protection and prevention.
Our security and data retention measures, and any transfers we make outside of the EEA
The Personal Information you provide to us will be transferred to and stored on our servers in the UK and we take steps to protect your Personal Information from unauthorised access and against unlawful processing, accidental loss, destruction and damage.
We will only keep your Personal Information for as long as we reasonably require and, in any event, only for as long as Data Protection Legislation allows.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure and, although we will take steps to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee the security of your Personal Information transmitted via the Website; any transmission is therefore at your own risk.
In processing your Personal Information, it may be necessary for us to transfer your Personal Information outside the European Economic Area ("EEA"). It may also be accessed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for us or for one of our suppliers. This includes staff engaged in, among other things, the provision of support services to the Website. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your Personal Information is treated securely and in accordance with this Policy and Data Protection Legislation when it is processed in, or otherwise accessed from, a location outside the EEA. This means that we will only transfer your Personal Information to third parties outside the EEA if that third party (a) is situated in a country that has been confirmed by the European Commission to provide adequate protection to Personal Information, or (b) has agreed (by way of written contract) to provide all protections to your Personal Information as required by Data Protection Legislation. For the avoidance of doubt, in the event that the UK is no longer a part of the EEA, references in this paragraph to the EEA shall mean the EEA and/or the UK.
Accessing and updating your Personal Information
You have the right to ask us not to process your Personal Information for marketing or research purposes. We will usually inform you (before collecting your Personal Information) if we intend to use your Personal Information for such purposes or if we intend to disclose your Personal Information to any third party for such purposes. You can exercise your right to prevent such processing by checking certain boxes on the forms we use to collect your data. You can also exercise the right at any time by contacting us using the contact details set out at section 10 below.
You have the right to see the Personal Information we hold about you and to ask us to: (a) make any changes to ensure that any Personal Information we hold about you is accurate and up to date; (b) erase or stop processing any Personal Information we hold about you where there is no longer a legal ground for us to hold it; or (c) transfer any information we hold about you to a specified third party. If you wish to do this, please contact us using the contact details set out at section 10 below.
Should you have any queries or complaints in relation to how we use your Personal Information, please contact us using the details set out at section 10 below. Should you wish to take any complaints or queries further, you have the right to contact the Information Commissioner's Office regarding such issues.
