In such circumstances, we will enter into model contractual clauses as adopted by the European Commission, or rely on alternative legal bases such as the Privacy Shield, where applicable, or binding corporate rules where our partners or service providers have adopted such internal policies approved by European data protection authorities.
In May 2018, a new data privacy law known as the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) became effective. The GDPR requires NOAH to provide you with more information about the processing of Personal Data. Data protection law provides you with rights in respect of Personal Data that we hold about you. Here is what you need to know:
To protect the privacy and the security of your Personal Data, we may request information from you to enable us to confirm your identity and right to access such information, as well as to search for and provide you with the Personal Data we maintain. There are instances where applicable laws or regulatory requirements allow us to refuse to provide or delete some or all of the Personal Data that we maintain. In this case, we reserve the right to refuse to act on a request that is manifestly unfounded or excessive (for example because it is repetitive) and/or to charge a fee that takes into account the administrative costs for providing the information or taking the action requested.
To carry out these rights, you have the "Contact Us" button displayed in the navigation bar of the Site. In your request, please include a reference to "Personal Data", make clear what information you would like to have access to or have changed, whether you would like to have your Personal Data suppressed from our database, or other limitations you would like to put on our use of your Personal Data.
Please note that requests to exercise data protection rights will be assessed by us on a case-by-case basis. We will try to respond to your request in a reasonable timeframe, and in any event in less than 30 days.
