Retention of personal information


Your information will be retained in line with our internal records management policies and retention schedules. How long we hold your personal information for will vary. The retention period will be determined by various criteria including the type of record in which your information is included; the purpose for which we are using it (we will need to keep the information for as long as is necessary for that purpose); and legal obligations (laws or regulation may set a minimum period for which we have to keep your personal information).

We may on exception retain your information for longer periods, particularly where we need to withhold destruction or disposal based on an order from the courts or an investigation by law enforcement agencies or our regulators. This is intended to make sure that the bank will be able to produce records as evidence, if they're needed.
