This means that we use or otherwise process your personal data where it is within our legitimate interests to do so. For example, it is in our legitimate interests to monitor website visitor IP addresses to maintain the security of our website.

We won't process your personal data where your own interests, fundamental rights or freedoms override our interests to use it. In certain circumstances when we are relying on our legitimate interests to process your personal data, you have the right to object to us using it - see section 8 for more details.

If you withdraw your consent, this does not affect the lawfulness of our processing of your data carried out with your consent before the withdrawal. Furthermore, if you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide you with certain products and services. If this applies to you, we will provide you with more information at the relevant time.

7. International data transfers

Where recipients of your personal data are located in countries that are outside the UK and EEA and do not provide for the same level of data protection as considered adequate in the UK and European Union, we take appropriate measures to ensure that your data is protected.

For instance, where required, our service providers and Goldman Sachs group entities have entered into appropriate agreements on the basis of the EU and / or UK Standard Contractual Clauses and implemented supplementary safeguards to ensure a level of protection comparable to the protection in the European Union and / or UK (as applicable).

The UK is considered to provide for an adequate level of protection under an adequacy decision by the European Commission.
