It also does not include website hosting partners and other parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting Customers Bank business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential.

Where we process account registration data and personal data in connection with the provision of banking services, we do this for as long as you are an account holder and for 6 years after you terminate your account. Where we process personal data in order to comply with our legal obligations (for example, “know-yourclient” information processed for anti-money laundering purposes) we will retain this for as long as you use our services, and in compliance with our regulatory obligations as set by the Financial Conduct Authority thereafter. Where we process personal data for marketing purposes or with your consent, we process the data until you ask us to stop and for a short period after this (to allow us to implement your requests). We also keep a record of the fact that you have asked us not to send you direct marketing or to process your data so that we can respect your request in future.
