At TRA we take your privacy seriously and will only use your personal information to provide the Services you have requested from us.

We may receive personal data from you for the purposes of our money laundering checks, such as a copy of your passport. This data will only be processed for the purposes of preventing money laundering and terrorist financing, or as otherwise permitted by law or with your express consent. Our work for you may require us to pass your information to our third-party service providers, agents, subcontractors and other associated organisations for the purposes of completing tasks and providing the Services to you on our behalf. However, when we use third party service providers, we disclose only the personal information that is necessary to deliver the Services and we have contracts in place that requires them to keep your information secure and not to use it for their own direct marketing purposes.
We collect information on our website to process your enquiry, deal with your event registration, give advice based on survey data and improve our services. If you agree, we will also use this information to share updates with you about our services which we believe may be of interest to you.

We may share your personal data with advisors who are subject to rules of confidentiality. We may also be obliged to provide access to your personal data to regulators and government bodies, including our professional body.
If we received your personal data from one of our clients, then we also share your personal data with that client.
We will not share your personal data with any other third parties, unless we have a legal or professional duty to do so.
Security precautions in place about data collected
When you give us personal information, we take steps to make sure that it’s treated securely. We have extensive security measures in place, in relation to data storage and the devices we use. Once we receive your information, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
We would like to send you information about our services which may be of interest to you. If you have consented to receive marketing, you may opt out at any point as set out below. You have a right at any time to stop us from contacting you for marketing purposes.
