As required by local data protection regulations the individual may exercise certain Data Subject Rights of information, access, rectification, restrict processing or erasure by directly contacting the TES entity who is the controller (as specified in this notice or otherwise communicated to the data subject). TES companies outside the EEA have appointed their representative (a TES company) within the EEA as required by GDPR. The Table 2 sets out the TES entity who is the representative.

Table 2: TES data controllers & GDPR responsibles

Many of our external third parties are based outside the European Economic Area (EEA) so their processing of your personal data will involve a transfer of data outside the EEA.

General: transfers of personal data from inside the EEA to outside the EEA Whenever we transfer your personal data from inside the EEA to outside the EEA, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:

Transfer of personal data to other TES group companies via our website

Personal data may be collected by TES via our website when the website user submits a Contact Form or other equivalent form on our website. In such cases, the user is required to select a TES entity or a country from a drop-down menu on our website (the countries in this menu are countries in which TES has a group company or where an TEs entity is offering services) to indicate which country (and corresponding TES group company) the user (or business they represent) wishes to contact. Such personal data will be used by the TES entity in the selected country in order to deal with the query and to manage the relationship between the user (and/or relevant organization that the person represents) and TES.

Accordingly, based on the selection of the individual, the personal data of the individual may be transferred to other entities within the TES group inside and outside of the EU. These data transfers are carried out with the consent of the individual.

How we coordinate responses within TES group to your data subject requests

As required by local data protection regulations the individual may exercise certain Data Subject Rights (see Paragraph 9 : Your Rights) by directly contacting the TES entity who is the controller (as specified in this notice or otherwise communicated to the data subject). The Table 2 above sets out the TES entity who has responsibility for coordinating our responses to individuals making data subject requests or other data protection enquiries.

Please Contact us if you want further information on the specific mechanism used by us when transferring your personal data from within the EEA to outside of the EEA.

We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.


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 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.
By law we have to keep basic information about our customers (including Contact, Identity, Financial and Transaction Data) for up to 10 years after they cease being customers for tax or other legal purposes. This period can vary from country to country and the regulatory and legal requirements in those countries. Details of retention periods for different aspects of your personal data are available in our retention policy which you can request from us by Contacting us.

In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your data: see Request erasure below for further information. In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.

Under certain circumstances, you have rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal data. You have the right to:

Request access to your personal data (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.

Request correction of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.

Request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.

Object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.

Request restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios: (a) if you want us to establish the data’s accuracy; (b) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (c) where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (d) you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.

Request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.

Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.

If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please Contact us. A copy of your request will be sent to the data controller.

NO FEE USUALLY REQUIRED You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances to the extent permitted by applicable laws including GDPR..

WHAT WE MAY NEED FROM YOU We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.

TIME LIMIT TO RESPOND We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.

LAWFUL BASIS Legitimate Interest means the interest of our business in conducting and managing our business to enable us to give you the best service/product and the best and most secure experience. Our legitimate interests include for example: to detect and prevent fraud and crime ; administrative purposes; reporting potential crimes to relevant authorities; intra group transfers; employee administration, operations and recruitment; ensuring network, information and system security; participate and comply with industry watch-lists and industry self-regulatory schemes; corporate operations and due diligence (reporting of management information, operation of financial/risk/credit models, back office operation, managing third party service providers, corporate reorganisations)
We make sure we consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative) and your rights before we process your personal data for our legitimate interests. We do not use your personal data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent or are otherwise required or permitted to by law). You can obtain further information about how we assess our legitimate interests against any potential impact on you in respect of specific activities by Contacting us.
Performance of Contract means processing your data where it is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party or to take steps at your request before entering into such a contract.
Comply with a legal or regulatory obligation means processing your personal data where it is necessary for compliance with a legal or regulatory obligation that we are subject to.
