    Privacy statement
    Wellington Management respects the privacy of its clients and the confidentiality of information pertaining to its clients.

    Information we collect
    We may collect non-public personal information about you on RFPs, questionnaires, and other forms we receive from you, as well as from personal contacts such as correspondence, e-mail, telephone calls, or meetings. We may also receive information about you from third parties, such as your accountants, lawyers, financial consultants, and/or other service providers.

    It also is possible to receive information from web browsers and apps regarding certain of your online activities using cookies, or other common tracking technologies.  Some web browsers and other applications may provide a Do Not Track (DNT) preference setting.  When a user turns on a tracking preference, the browser or application may send a message to web sites requesting that they do or do not track the user. At this time, we take no actions in response to any DNT settings or messages.

    Information sharing
    Wellington Management seeks to provide seamless service to all clients. To facilitate that process, information regarding client accounts is shared broadly between affiliates within the Wellington Management group of companies. For example, an affiliate may share information with other affiliates in order to facilitate portfolio management or provide client liaison services to a particular client. Client information may be used by Wellington Management in order to identify potential client needs for additional investment management services.

    Wellington Management generally does not share non-public client information with unaffiliated third parties, except as necessary to perform the investment management services it has been hired to provide. For example, Wellington Management may share non-public client information with brokers and custodian banks in order to buy and sell securities and record those purchases and sales accurately. As a general rule, Wellington Management does not engage in joint marketing arrangements with unaffiliated third parties that involve the sharing of non-public information regarding Wellington Management’s clients. Wellington Management does not provide client information to unaffiliated third parties for their own marketing purposes.

    Wellington Management does not disclose your information except as required or permitted by law. In the event that Wellington Management is involved in a merger, acquisition, reorganization or sale of assets, or bankruptcy, your information may be transferred or sold as part of that transaction.

    Security policies
    We use technical, administrative, and procedural measures in an attempt to safeguard your personal and other information from unauthorized access or use. No such measure is ever 100% effective though, so we do not guarantee that your personal and other information will be secure from theft, loss, or unauthorized access or use, and we make no representation as to the reasonableness, efficacy, or appropriateness of the measures we use to safeguard such information. Users are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of their own passwords. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that the security of any account you might have with us has been compromised), please immediately notify us by contacting your relationship team member.

    Transfer of data to other countries
    Any information you provide to Wellington Management through use of the Site may be stored and processed, transferred between, and accessed from the US and other countries which may not guarantee the same level of protection of personal information as the one in which you reside. However, Wellington Management will handle your personal information in accordance with this Privacy Statement regardless of where your personal information is stored/accessed.

    Changes to Terms of use

    We may revise these Terms from time to time; the most current version will always be at https://www.wellington.com/terms-use. By continuing to access or use the Services after those revisions become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised Terms.

Disclosure of your information to third parties

International transfers of personal data

Wellington is a global business and as a result we or our third party processors collect and transfer personal data globally and may transfer your personal data to locations outside of your country. Your personal data may also be processed by individuals operating outside your country who work for Wellington or for one of our vendors.

Where Wellington transfers your personal data to another country it is required to do so in a manner consistent with legal requirements. In relation to data being transferred outside of the European Economic Area (the “EEA”), for example, this may be done in one of the following ways:

  • the country to which we send your personal data might be approved by the European Commission as offering an adequate level of protection for personal data;
  • the recipient might have signed up to a contract based on “model contractual clauses” approved by the European Commission, obliging it to protect your personal data;
  • where the recipient is located in the US, it might be a certified member of the EU-US Privacy Shield scheme; or
  • in other circumstances the law may permit us to otherwise transfer your personal data outside the EEA.

You can obtain more details of the protection given to your personal data when we transfer it outside the EEA (including a copy of the standard data protection clauses which we have entered into with recipients of your personal data) by contacting us as described in “Contacting Us” section below.

Security of personal data

Wellington has extensive controls in place to maintain the security of personal data. As a condition of employment, Wellington employees are required to follow all applicable laws and regulations, including in relation to data protection law. Unauthorised use or disclosure of confidential client information by a Wellington employee is prohibited and may result in disciplinary measures.

Retention of personal data

How long we hold your personal data for will vary. The retention period will be determined by the following:

  • the purpose for which we are using your personal data – we will need to keep the data for as long as is necessary for that purpose; and
  • legal obligations – laws or regulation may set a minimum period for which we have to keep your personal data.

Your rights

You have a number of legal rights in relation to the personal data that we hold about you. These rights include:

  • the right to obtain information regarding the processing of your personal data and access to the personal data which we hold about you;
  • where you have actively provided your consent for us to process your personal data, the right to withdraw your consent to our processing of your personal data at any time.

  • the right to request that we rectify your personal data if it is inaccurate or incomplete;
  • the right to request that we erase your personal data in certain circumstances. Please note that there may be circumstances where you ask us to erase your personal data but we are legally entitled to retain it;
  • the right to object to and the right to request that we restrict our processing of your personal data in certain circumstances. Again, there may be circumstances where you object to, or ask us to restrict, our processing of your personal data but we are legally entitled to continue processing your personal data and / or to refuse that request; and
  • the right to lodge a complaint with the data protection regulator if you think that any of your rights have been infringed by us.

You can exercise your rights by contacting us using the details set out in the “Contacting us” section below.

Contacting us

If you would like further information on the collection, use, disclosure, transfer or processing of your personal data or the exercise of any of the rights listed above, please address questions, comments and requests to Privacyinquiries@wellington.com.
