Larchpoint will take all reasonable steps to retain personal information only for the duration of the purpose for which it was obtained. Larchpoint may continue to hold some data for legal or regulatory reasons or where it is in our legitimate interest to do so.

Larchpoint protects any personal information it holds with appropriate technical and organisational security measures. Access to your personal information is password-protected. We use sophisticated software to monitor our system for possible vulnerabilities and attacks, and we regularly update our passwords to ensure maximum security. Any staff with access to your personal information to perform their roles, do so in accordance with Larchpoint’s data protection and information security policies.

  • to operate, manage, develop and promote our business and, in particular, our relationship with you and the organisation you represent (if any) and related investments and/or transactions
  • To process any job application you submit, or that an agency submits for you

  • to your colleagues within the organisation that you represent;
  • to service providers or information technology systems which hold or process your information on our behalf, under strict conditions of confidentiality and security;
  • to business partners, suppliers and sub-contractors for the performance of any contract we enter into with them or you;
