Where Do We Process Personal Data? (GDPR)
CCM is a globally active enterprise.

When doing so we will comply with applicable data protection requirements and take appropriate safeguards to ensure the security and integrity of your personal data, in particular by entering into the EU Standard Contractual Clauses. You may contact us anytime using the contact details below if you would like further information on such safeguards.
How Do We Protect Your Personal Data (GDPR)
CCM maintains physical, electronic and procedural safeguards in accordance with the technical state of the art and legal data protection requirements to protect your personal data from unauthorized access or intrusion. These safeguards include implementing specific technologies and procedures designed to protect your privacy, such as secure servers, firewalls and SSL encryption. CCM will at all times strictly comply with applicable laws and regulations regarding the confidentiality and security of personal data.
With Whom Do We Share Your Personal Data? (GDPR)
CCM may share your personal data as follows:
- With our affiliates within CCM worldwide if and to the extent required for the Permitted Purposes and legally permitted. In such cases, these entities will then use the Personal Data for the same purposes and under the same conditions as outlined in this Data Privacy Notice.
- CCM may also instruct service providers (so called data processors) within or outside of CCM, domestically or abroad, e.g., fund account managers, other financial service providers, shared service centers, to process personal data for the Permitted Purposes on our behalf and in accordance with our instructions only. CCM will retain control over and will remain fully responsible for your personal data and will use appropriate safeguards as required by applicable law to ensure the integrity and security of your personal data when engaging such service providers.

- With credit reference agencies and other companies for use in fraud prevention, anti-money laundering and KYC requirements and similar requirements, such as debt collection.
Otherwise, we will only disclose your personal data when you direct or give us permission, when we are required by applicable law or regulations or judicial or official request to do so, or when we suspect fraudulent or criminal activities.
How Long Do We Store Personal Data? (GDPR)
CCM will hold your personal data as long as required by applicable law and to provide the services, products or information you have requested and to administer your business relationship with us. If you have asked us not to communicate with you, we will hold this information as long as required by applicable law and as necessary to comply with your request. CCM is required to keep certain of your personal data (e.g., relating to business transactions) for certain retention periods under applicable law. If your personal data is subject to the GDPR, it will be promptly deleted when it is no longer required for these purposes.
Your Rights (GDPR)
Under the GDPR, subject to certain legal conditions, you may request access to, rectification, erasure or restriction of processing of your personal data. You may also object to processing or request data portability. In particular you have the right to request a copy of the personal data that we hold about you. If you make this request repeatedly, we may make an adequate charge for this. Please refer to Articles 15-22 of the EU General Data Protection Regulation for details on your data protection rights. As we want to make sure that your personal data is accurate and up to date you may also ask us to correct or remove any information which you think is inaccurate.
If you have given us your consent for the processing of your personal data you withdraw the consent at any time with future effect, i.e., the withdrawal of the consent does not affect the lawfulness of processing based on the consent before its withdrawal. In case consent is withdrawn, we may only further process the personal data where there is another legal ground for the processing.
For any of the above requests, please send a description of your personal data concerned stating your name, account information, and if applicable, your date of birth as proof of identity to the contact details below. CCM may require additional proof of identity to protect your personal data against unauthorized access. CCM will carefully consider your request and may discuss with you how it can best be fulfilled.
If you have any concerns about how your personal data is handled by us or wish to raise a complaint on how we have handled your personal data, you can contact us at the contact details below to have the matter investigated. If you are not satisfied with our response or believe we are processing your personal data not in accordance with the law you can complain to the competent data protection supervisory authority in your country. For example, if you are from the UK, you may contact the Information Commissioners Office via their website (www.ico.gov.uk).
Are You Required To Provide Personal Data? (GDPR)
As a general principle, you will provide us with your personal data entirely voluntary; there are generally no detrimental effects on you if you choose not to consent or to provide personal data. However, there are circumstances in which CCM cannot take action without certain of your personal data, for example because this personal data is required to provide with our services, to evaluate you for a position or to carry out a legally required compliance screening. In these cases, it will unfortunately not be possible for CCM to provide you with what you request without the relevant personal data.
What If I’m Under 16? (GDPR and Other)
If you are under 16, please make sure that you obtain your parent/guardian’s permission prior to providing us with any of your personal data. Persons under the age of 16 are not permitted to provide us with their personal data without such consent. Further, please understand that we provide financial services and so, if you are under 16, it is unlikely we will be able to either provide you with those services or offer you employment without your parent/guardian’s permission. CCM will not knowingly collect Personal Data from children under the age of 13 through this Site, which is not intended for this age group.
Changes to This Notice (GDPR)
This Data Privacy Notice was last updated in May 2018. From time to time, we may make change or amend it as required to reflect any changes to the way in which we use your personal data or changing legal requirements. So you may wish to check back from time to time. Any amended information Data Privacy Notice will apply from the date it is posted on our website.
