Protecting your personal information is extremely important to us at Legal & General. It’s especially important for a large financial company like ours, as our customers trust us to look after a huge amount of sensitive information on everything from their business affairs to their medical history.
The way we collect, use, store and share your information is equally important. Our customers expect us to manage their information privately and securely. If we don’t, they’ll lose their trust in us.
When we talk about personal information we mean information about an individual that can identify them, like their name, address, email address, telephone number and financial details. It can relate to customers (including prospective customers), competition entrants and other individuals that competition entrants involve in their competition entries (such as friends and family who are included in your competition entry photo), employees, shareholders, business contacts and suppliers. Any reference to “information” or “data” in this policy is a reference to personal information about a living individual.

If your photo is selected and you supply the required, completed release forms, we will retain your personal information for five years, until May 2024 so that any material that they are used in can be fully utilised

If you would like further information on these safeguards, please contact us.
