Ensuring your personal data is safe and accurate
We ensure that your data is kept safely on our systems and have put measures in place to help guard against any accidental loss, destruction or damage of personal data.
We only collect and record data about individuals that is necessary for us to perform our marketing activity and nothing more. As our information is collected from the individuals directly, we assume that this is correct at the time of collection and offer provision for our data subjects to update their details at any time if the information held becomes inaccurate (see below ‘Data Subject Rights’).
Hikari Capital will only ever share your data when it is required to do so, for example internally within our Group of Companies. Or with third parties, to help manage our business and deliver services. These third
parties may from time to time need to have access to your personal data, and include:
- Financial Institutions

We may also disclose personally identifiable information in by law.

We will never share or sell our customers or potential customer’s data with any other businesses, individuals outside of our company or any third parties.
We will retain personal data for as long as is reasonably necessary for the purposes listed above. Where there has been no interaction from a customer, supplier and service provider, data will be archived after 3 year and deleted after 7 years. Where we are required to do so to meet legal, regulatory, tax or accounting requirements, we will retain personal data for longer periods of time, but only where permitted to do so, including so that we have an accurate record of dealings with us in the event of any complaints or challenges, or if we reasonably believe there is a possibility of legal action relating to your personal data or dealings. We maintain a data retention policy which we apply to records in our care. Where personal data is no longer required and we do not have a legal requirement to retain it, we will ensure it is either securely deleted or stored in a way such that it is anonymised and the Personal Data is no longer used by the business.
