Negentropy recognises the importance of and is committed to protecting your information. Negentropy seeks to comply with its obligations under the General Data Protection Regulation (‘GDPR’), which regulates the processing of data, and ensures that your data is processed fairly and lawfully, is kept secure and only that data necessary for any processing is retained.
This Privacy Notice summarises the personal data we may collect, how we may use that data, how we ensure the information we have is kept accurate and how you can request access, deletion, rectification, restriction, transfer and withdraw consent (where applicable) and make a complaint. We primarily collect data to provide you with services you have requested. We may update this Privacy Notice from time to time and will keep the current version on our website.
For the purposes of the GDPR, Negentropy will be the ‘controller’ of the personal data you provide. Please read the following information carefully in order to understand Negentropy practices in relation to the treatment of your personal data.

What personal data does Negentropy collect and why?
In the course of providing products/services to you, Negentropy may collect information that is considered personal information (e.g. name, contact details, address, passport number, driving licence).
As a client or contact of Negentropy, we will require some personal information in order to verify your identity and have the applicable relationship with you. Some of this information may be required to satisfy legal obligations (e.g. to comply with obligations arising under the money laundering regulations whereas other information may be required in connection with the provision of services to you). The information collected will vary depending on the service Negentropy provides to you or you provide to Negentropy, but typically includes:
- Personal information (e.g. your name, date of birth, passport number or national insurance number);
- Contact information: which may include your address, telephone number and email address.
Where does Negentropy store my personal data?
Negentropy has put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal information from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. We also have procedures to deal with any suspected data security breach.
How long does Negentropy retain personal data?
As a regulated entity, Negentropy is required to maintain its books and records for five years from either ceasing a business relationship, or, in the case of non-clients, from the making of a record – or alternatively, for seven years, where specifically requested to do so by the FCA. As such, information that falls in scope of either of these requirements is retained in line with the FCA’s rules.
Any information that is outside the scope of this requirement will be retained whilst relevant and useful, and destroyed where this ceases to be the case or where the data subject specifically requests this.
How have I been categorised in accordance with the GDPR?
The GDPR requires Negentropy to inform you of the legal basis on which we maintain your personal data. As a general rule the following is applicable:
- Clients – Information is maintained on the basis of contractual obligation and/or legitimate interests (where relevant);
- Service providers – Information is maintained on the basis of contractual obligation; and
- Database/marketing contacts – Information is maintained on the basis of legitimate interest.
