5. Intra-Group Transfers of data within the EU/EEA

The free exchange of personal data between Member States is a fundamental aspect of the EU’s basic principles. This principle is also reflected in the GDPR, which excludes the restriction or prohibition of the free movement of personal data within the EU or EEA. 

GDPR therefore allows for the transfer between EU/EEA companies subject to the legal basis as provided above in section 3 of this policy.

6. Transfers outside the EU/EEA 

The personal non-public data we collect from you may be collected stored or processed by or transferred among our company, including our partners established outside the EU/EEA. To date, the European Commission has not determined the non-EU countries we are established in to have an adequate level of protection of personal data within the terms of article 45 of the GDPR.  

In the absence of an Adequacy Decision, the GDPR provides that a transfer can take place through the provision of appropriate safeguards and on condition that enforceable rights and effective legal remedies are available for individuals. Such appropriate safeguards include contractual arrangements with the recipient of the personal data, using, the standard contractual clauses approved by the European Commission.  

For this purpose, contractual arrangements based on contractual provisions as approved by the European Commission are in place to ensure effective legal remedies to you in relation to the processing of personal non-public data by our partners outside the EU/EEA. 

7. How long do we retain the data? 

We retain the personal information that we collect from you only for as long as required for statutory, business, tax or legitimate interest purposes. Your information is retained in electronic or paper format or both. When it is no longer required, it will be deleted or destroyed.  

Should you wish to obtain information on the specific retention period of any personal information we hold on you, please contact us on admin@offshore.finance. 

8. Automated individual decision making, including profiling 

We do not undertake fully automated individual decision-making, including profiling, that has a legal or similarly significant effect. 

9. Systems we use 

We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect personal non-public data.

Data transmitted to us through the contact forms on website are transmitted in an encrypted form. Transmission of personal data via the Internet is made at your own risk.  We attempt to protect your personal data from unauthorized access by third parties by means of precautions such as pseudonymization, data minimization and observing deletion periods. Despite these protective measures, however, we cannot completely rule out unlawful processing by third parties.  

Additionally, we herein outline programmers and systems we use in our collection, processing and storing of data:

  • we use an online portal managed and operated by us online to store and process information, data and details;
  • we use reCAPTCHA to detect any improperly use of our website by automated mechanical processing. Certain personal data, including IP address, is thus transmitted to “Google”;
