Comsure Newsfeed – Use of Publicly Available Data within Our news Services
Many professionals and third parties rely on the use of publicly available information to carry out research (e.g., on case law) or to satisfy their compliance obligations (e.g., to carry out anti-money-laundering checks). To assist them, Comsure makes available information obtained from publicly available sources like public websites, open regulatory databases (and similar pages), open government databases or other data in the public domain.
In utilising publicly available information Comsure take privacy seriously and puts in place measures designed to ensure it processes personal information in a proportionate way and compliance with data protection laws.
The measures in place include:-
Non-Sensitive Personal Information – Where Comsure processes non-sensitive personal information within the Comsure Newsfeed, it is because it is in our or a third parties’ legitimate interests to do so.
Sensitive Personal Information – In the limited circumstances where we process sensitive personal information, we usually do so where:
1. necessary because of obligations found in legislation such financial services, employment, social security and social protection.
2. personal information has been manifestly made public by the person to whom it relates
3. necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or whenever courts are acting in their judicial capacity
4. processing is necessary for reasons of substantial public interest, by applicable law
Also, Comsure put in place appropriate measures to protect your information where it is transferred internationally, to secure it and to ensure it is retained only for a reasonable period.
If you would like to make further enquiries about how personal information is used within the Comsure Newsfeed, please contact the Comsure Privacy Team.
