    Privacy Statement

    This privacy statement describes how we collect and use information through this website, particularly in relation to anti-money laundering laws and regulations. If you have any questions about this statement or your personal information, please contact us.

    You do not have to give us any personal information in order to use most of this website. However, if you wish to take advantage of our web services, you will need to provide certain information.

    Anti Money Laundering Information

    We operate subject to laws and regulations designed to combat money laundering. Broadly, money laundering can arise if a person acquires, retains, transfers, uses or controls the proceeds of a crime or the benefit of a criminal activity.

    We are obliged to identify new clients, and in the case of incorporated clients the identity of shareholders and beneficial owners. In addition, our internal requirements require that we verify the authority of clients’ directors or employees or other representatives to provide us with instructions. We may require evidence of source of funds, at the outset of, and possibly from time to time throughout, our relationship with clients. We may obtain evidence of identity and source of funds from third party sources.

    In some circumstances we may decline to proceed to act until our procedures have been completed. In other circumstances we may agree to commence acting whilst these procedures are carried out. We reserve the right to decline to act or, if appropriate, cease to act should these procedures not be completed to our satisfaction. We may also be required to make detailed enquiries of any unusual transactions such as the transfer of large amounts of cash.

    Where we instruct counsel or other professionals on behalf of clients they may request us as a regulated person to provide them with copies of evidence of identity of clients or their representatives which we have obtained from you or from other sources. We will be entitled to send such copies to them, unless you specifically instruct us not to do so.
