If you exchange electronic communications with our employees or representatives by email, text, or telephone conversations, our information technology systems will record details of those conversations, sometimes including their content.

We may review information about you that we maintain in our systems, including the contents of and information related to your emails and other communications with us, for compliance and business-protection purposes as described above. This may include reviews to disclose information relevant to litigation and/or reviews of records relevant to internal or external regulatory or criminal investigations. To the extent permitted by applicable law these reviews will be conducted in a reasonable and proportionate way and approved at an appropriate level of management. They may ultimately involve disclosure of your information to governmental agencies and litigation counterparties as described below. Your emails and other communications may occasionally be accessed by persons other than the staff member with whom they are exchanged for ordinary business management purposes (for example, where necessary when a staff member is out of the office or has left New Rhein).
We may disclose personal information about you, where reasonably necessary for the various purposes set out above:
These disclosures may involve transferring your personal information overseas. If you are dealing with us within the European Economic Area (or the UK, after it has left the European Economic Area), you should be aware that this may include transfers to countries outside the European Economic Area / UK which do not have similarly strict data privacy laws. In those cases, where we transfer personal data to other members of the New Rhein group or our service providers, we will ensure that our arrangements with them are governed by data transfer agreements, designed to ensure that your personal information is protected, on terms approved for this purpose by the European Commission. Please contact us (see contact details below) if you would like to know whether any such agreements are in place or, if so, to see a copy.
We have procedures to periodically delete the information that we hold about you when we no longer need it. Usually, this will be after your involvement with New Rhein has come to an end and a reasonable period of time has passed. Note that we may retain some limited information about you even when we know that you have left the organization that you represent, so that we can maintain a continuous business relationship with you if and when we are in contact with you again, representing a different organization.
You may have a right of access to the personal information that we hold about you, and to some related information, under data protection laws. Also, you may require that inaccurate personal information about you be corrected or deleted. You may have the right to object to our processing of some or all of your personal information, and require them to be deleted, in some other circumstances.
If you wish to exercise any of these rights, please contact us (see contact details below) as set out below. You can also lodge a complaint about our processing of your personal information with the body regulating data protection in your country.
Any changes we make to this privacy statement in the future will be posted to our website at www.newrhein.com and also available if you contact us at the contact details below. Please check back frequently to see any changes.
