1. How we use your information
You are not required to provide any personal information on the public areas of this website. However, you may choose to do so by completing the forms on various pages of this site. We will tell you at the point of collection the purposes for which the data is collected and only use the data for these purposes. If you apply for a product or service online, the associated terms and conditions will inform you how your data will be used.
We may pass your information collected online to other members of the Barclays Group or to third parties, wherever they are located in the world (including outside of the European Economic Area), who provide a service to us or are acting as our agents, on the understanding that they will keep the information confidential. If we transfer your information to an agent or service provider located in another country, we will ensure the same levels of protection are applied to your information and use of that information is strictly in accordance with our instructions.
We may also use your information for research and statistical analysis with the aim of improving our services.
Where you provide information about others (e.g. for joint accounts or if you are "recommending a friend") you must ensure that you have their consent or are otherwise entitled to provide this information to us.
We will retain information collected about you online for as long as permitted for legitimate business purposes.
