WHAT DOES TRILOGY DO TO PROTECT YOUR PERSONAL DATA?

Trilogy restricts access to your personal data to the people who need to know that information in order to perform their jobs, comply with law, rules or regulations or to provide services related to the management of the client account with Trilogy. To ensure that Trilogy is complying with the laws governing the securities business, Trilogy maintains physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to keep your personal data confidential.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure.

Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

FOR HOW LONG WILL RETAIN YOUR PERSONAL DATA?

We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.  To determine the appropriate retention period for your personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal data so that it can no longer be associated with you, in which case we may use such information without further notice to you. Once you are no longer a customer we will retain and securely destroy your personal information in accordance with this policy and applicable law.
