Why we collect it We collect information about you so that we can personalise your use of the site, assist your use of the site and improve the site generally. We may arrange for you to be sent information about related products and services from us, unless you inform us that you do not wish to be contacted. We will NOT pass your contact details to third parties for marketing purposes.
Who we disclose it to
Data Protection Save & Invest is registered with the Information Commissioner in the UK as a “data controller” in accordance with the provisions of the Data Protection Act 1998. Further details of the registration are available at www.dpr.gov.uk
Security Keeping information about you secure is very important to us and certain sections of the site may encrypt data using SSL or a comparable standard. However, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be totally secure. As a result, whilst we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information which you send to us, and you do so at your own risk.
Accessing and updating your personal information We will always let you have a copy of personal information we have about you, should you request it, and you may correct it if you wish. Instructions about how to do this are available from firstname.lastname@example.org.
Save & Invest is committed to online security
Save & Invest has always considered the protection of sensitive information to be a foundation of customer trust and sound business practice. We employ extensive physical, electronic and procedural controls, and we regularly adapt these controls to respond to changing requirements and advances in technology.
While you will never see the majority of our security programs, Save & Invest understands the importance of keeping your personal information and investments secure;
For your protection, no matter through which channel you choose to conduct business with us, we verify your identity before granting you access to your accounts. Our goal is to ensure that our customers have secure access to their accounts, that we provide account information only to authorised individuals and that the account information is accurate.
When you sign up for online access with Save & Invest you are assigned various security credentials. You will use these to access your accounts. This information is encrypted during transmission to protect it from third parties and will remain a secret as long as you do not disclose it.
Save & Invest's system will automatically log you off after a set period of inactivity. This reduces the risk that others could access your information from your unattended computer should you step away.
Save & Invest's computer systems are protected by firewalls which block unauthorised entry. Firewalls are selective barriers which permit only specific types of traffic (transactions) through to our systems.
From the point that account information leaves your computer until it enters Save & Invest's systems, all online activity involving personal or sensitive information is encrypted.
Save & Invest employs some of the strongest methods of encryption commercially available for use on the Web today. You can recognise when a website is using encryption by the address (URL) for the page. Page addresses that begin with 'https://' are using encryption. The 's' stands for 'secured'.
