Privacy and Cookies Policy

This is the privacy and cookies policy for the Societe Generale Exchange Traded Products website, which is operated by Societe Generale London Branch.


Collection of your information

Societe Generale may obtain personal information about you during the course of your participation with the SG Exchange Traded Products website, sometimes through the use of on-line or off-line forms.


 Use of your information

 The information you voluntarily provide us through this website or email (which may include your name, company, address and contact details such as your telephone number, email address or fax number) will be used for the following purposes:

 a) to send you information and updates about the investments that you make on the SG Exchange Traded Products website;  

b) to satisfy your requests, such as publications or information relating to SG Exchange Traded Products;

c) to respond to your query if you have emailed us with an enquiry (for example, in relation to any SG Exchange Traded Products or a forthcoming publication or event);

d) to send you further information and marketing materials about our services, products, publications, events or keep you informed through our periodic newsletters provided that you have indicated that you are happy to be contacted for these purposes.


 Who do we share your information with?

 We may (to the extent necessary) pass your personal information to members of the Societe Generale Group and Societe Generale’s partners, providers, and subcontractors (for whom we remain responsible in this regard) who assist us in providing the services we offer, such as fulfilling requests for information, receiving and sending communications, updating marketing lists, analysing data, providing support services or in other tasks from time to time. Our agents and contractors will only use your information to the extent necessary to perform their functions.

 In the event that we undergo re-organisation or are sold to a third party, you agree that any personal information we hold about you may be transferred to that re-organised entity or third party.

 We may disclose personal information about you if required to do so by law enforcement or other government or regulatory bodies and their officials or to third parties in connection with an investigation of fraud, intellectual property infringement, breach of any law or other activity that is illegal or which may expose us to legal liability, or in order to protect our rights and property.

 International Transfers

 Your personal data may be processed by staff operating outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”) or your local jurisdiction who work for us or for one of our suppliers chosen for their expertise in certain areas. This may, for example, happen if one or more of our servers are from time to time located in a country outside the EEA or one of our service providers is located in a country outside the EEA. If we transfer your information outside the EEA in this way, we will take steps to ensure that your privacy rights continue to be protected.
