We may disclose any of the personal information that we collect, as described above, to non-affiliated third parties under the circumstances described below and in this notice.
For legal and regulatory reasons:
We may disclose your information if we are under a duty to disclose or share your Information to comply with any legal or regulatory obligations; to enforce, apply or fulfil our terms and conditions and other agreements or to protect the rights, property, or safety of our customers, our group companies or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations to conduct due diligence checks on business contacts as part of AB’s financial crimes and anti-corruption programs.
To provide contracted services:
We use a number of third party organizations in the provision of services to our customers (i.e. processing centers, development and maintenance of our networks and systems). These organizations act as data processors and are strictly contractually controlled in how they may/may not use your Information and we remain responsible for the protection of your Information.
Please contact AB if you would like additional information about the third parties used to fulfil our contractual obligations.
We may also disclose any of the personal information that we collect as described above, to our affiliated investment, brokerage, service and insurance companies for the purpose of marketing their products or services under circumstances that are permitted by law. We have policies and procedures to ensure that certain conditions are met before an AB affiliated company may use information obtained from another affiliate to solicit clients for marketing purposes.
Our website may link to third party websites that have privacy policies that differ from ours, and you should consult those websites’ privacy policies to understand how they will collect, store, process, transfer, and otherwise use your personal information.
Should any third party, whether affiliated or not, be or become co-controller of a data processing activity with AB, because it jointly determines the purposes or the essential elements of the means which characterize a data controller, we will update our policies to inform you of the processing and how to exercise your rights.
