Privacy and cookie policy

This statement discloses the information practices for the Euroclear (entities listed here) website, including what type of information is gathered and tracked, how the information is used, and with whom the information is shared.

In general, you can visit Euroclear on the internet without telling us who you are and without giving any personal information about yourself. There are times, however, when we may need information from you to better serve you.

Personal information

You may choose to give us personal information in a variety of situations. For example, you may want to give us information, such as your name and address or e-mail address, to correspond with you or to provide you with a subscription. You may give us a description of your education and work experience in connection with a job opening at Euroclear that you wish to be considered for. Other information such as your IP address, web server, operational system, log in details and pages visited can also be collected when you visit the Euroclear website. We intend to let you know how we will use such information before we collect it from you; if you tell us that you do not want us to use this information to make further contact with you beyond fulfilling your requests or for any other purposes, we will respect your wishes.

The following paragraphs describe in more detail how Euroclear may use your personal information.

Euroclear (entities listed here) is the controller of your personal data. We may transfer your personal data to recipients only when it is necessary for services we provide you or when it is required by law. These recipients may be any third party within the Euroclear group or other third parties (both within and outside of the EU/EEA area). Where required by law, Euroclear is also obligated to provide information to external parties such as but not limited to, the Police Authorities, the Financial Supervisory Authorities and the Tax Agencies. Transfers of personal data outside of the European Economic Area may take place only if an adequate level of personal data protection is ensured.

Providing us with your personal data is voluntary, however this may be necessary to enable us to provide you with services.

We respect your right of access to and the right to rectify your personal data.

Marketing use

The information you provide to Euroclear through the website may be used by Euroclear for marketing purposes, which include amongst other things, market and client analysis, business assessments and development and risk management. Before we use it, however, we will offer you the opportunity to choose whether or not to have your information used in this way. You can always request the blocking of your information for these purposes.

Your use of the products and services on this website may be monitored by Euroclear. The resulting information may be used by Euroclear for its internal business purposes or in accordance with the rules of any applicable regulatory authority or governmental body.

Information security and quality

We intend to protect your personal information and to maintain its quality. We implement appropriate measures and processes to help us to keep your information secure and to maintain its quality.

Supplementing information

From time to time we may supplement information you give us via the Euroclear website with information from other sources, such as information validating your address or other available information about businesses. This is to help us maintain the accuracy of the information we collect and to help us provide a better service.

If you want to receive more information about the personal data processed by the Euroclear group companies or if you want to request the correction of incorrect or misleading information or request the blocking of direct marketing, please submit a corresponding request in writing to Euroclear.
