Privacy Policy / Privacy Notice


Alchelyst is a provider of fund administration services to corporate, institutional, and private investors. This privacy policy ("policy") explains how we collect, manage, and protect your personal data if we need to process it as a data controller for the purposes of providing services to our clients. References to "we", "us", and "our" in this notice are to one or more members of the Alchelyst group.

The Alchelyst group consists of Alchelyst Limited, a company incorporated in Ireland with registered number 726162, whose registered office is at 1st Floor Block 3, the Oval, Shelbourne Road, Dublin D04T8F2 and its subsidiaries, its ultimate holding body, all subsidiaries of its ultimate holding body and any corporate entity managed or controlled by any of those entities.

We collect and process your personal data if you are:

a) A client that is an individual receiving services in your own capacity (an "individual client"), for instance, related to a trust or a foundation, from us; or

b) Associated with a corporate client because you are (for instance) an owner, director, officer, employee or contractor of the corporate client, or an investor in it. This notice does not apply to the collection or use of personal data by any member of the Alchelyst group as a data processor acting on instructions from a client. Where this applies, the client will be the data controller and it’s privacy notice and/or the terms of an agreement as to processing agreed between us will apply.   

Purpose of Data Protection

The purpose of data protection law is to protect your rights, and privacy when we process your personal data. Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. A person is "identifiable" if they can be identified, directly or indirectly, not only by things such as a name or an identification number, but also by things such as location data or some factor specific to (for example) the physical, physiological or social identity of that person.

More common examples of personal data include names, identification numbers, contact information, identity documents, medical records, and photographic images and it may be contained in written document or in a recording, voicemail, for example. "Processing" covers any activity involving personal data and includes such things as the collection, recording, storage, adaptation, use, disclosure, and destruction of personal data.

Because of the broad definition of "processing", we will in many cases need to start processing personal data about you before you or an entity with which you are associated or otherwise connected, actually become(s) a client or a supplier, as the case may be. Therefore, where the context allows, references in this notice to "clients", "suppliers", and others are to be read as including references to potential clients, suppliers, and so on, even if you or they never actually become(s) a "client" or a "supplier" and so on. The only exception to this is in relation to "potential employees", who are dealt with separately below.

You can tell us to stop sending you marketing information at any time by objecting or withdrawing your consent. 

Even if you tell us that you do not want to receive marketing information from us, we still may have the right to process your personal data for the purposes of providing services to you or a client with which you are associated or otherwise connected and, in such cases, we will continue to process your personal data for those purposes.   

We do not sell or otherwise pass on your contact details to any third party outside Alchelyst for marketing purposes.

Where we do not base our use of personal data about you on one of the above legal bases or some other legal basis that we might explain to you in a supplemental privacy notice (see below), we will ask for your consent before we process the personal data (these cases will be clear from the context).   

In some instances, we may use personal data about you in ways that are not described above. Where this is the case, we will provide a supplemental privacy notice that explains such use. You should read any supplemental notice in conjunction with this notice.   

To the extent that we rely upon consent as the legal basis under which we use your data for any purpose, you are permitted to withdraw your consent at any time.   

Your Rights as individual ‘Data Subjects’

Depending on where you are resident, you may have some or all of the following rights under applicable data protection laws in respect of your data that we hold:
  • You have the right of access to your personal data and can request copies of it and information about our processing of it.
  • If the personal data we hold about you is incorrect or incomplete, you can ask us to rectify or add to it.
  • Where we are using your personal data with your consent, you can withdraw your consent at any time.
  • Where we are using your personal data because it is in our legitimate interests to do so, you can object to us using it this way.
  • Where we are using your personal data for direct marketing, including profiling for direct marketing purposes, you can object to us doing so and opt out of all future marketing.
  • You can ask us to restrict the use of your personal data if:
    • It is not accurate.
    • It has been used unlawfully but you do not want us to delete it.
    • We do not need it anymore, but you want us to keep it for use in legal claims; or
    • If you have already asked us to stop using your data but you are waiting to receive confirmation from us as to whether we can comply with your request.

Your rights to object to our processing of your personal data are not absolute and it may be that in some circumstances we can continue to process your personal data if we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds, which override your interests, rights and freedoms or if the processing is for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

Further, if you object to our processing of your personal data and, as a result, we stop processing it, we may not be able to continue to provide services to you or to the client with which you are associated or otherwise connected in a particular manner or at all and we may, as a result, need to terminate the provision of our services.

We will delete any personal data no longer required and will do so in an appropriate and secure manner.

You will not generally have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request for access is clearly unfounded or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with the request in such circumstances.

If you wish to exercise your rights, please contact our Head of Risk and Compliance using the details provided at the end of this notice.

You can also lodge a complaint with the national data protection authority of your habitual residence, place of work or place of an alleged infringement.   

Protection of Your Data

We implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect the personal data that we process from unauthorised disclosure, use, alteration or destruction. For more information about the steps we are taking to protect your data, please contact our Head of Risk and Compliance using the details provided at the end of this notice.   

Retention of Your Data

We have retention policies in place to meet regulatory requirements and client obligations. We retain personal data for the duration of the services that we provide as necessary to meet our obligations under our contractual obligations to you, to identify issues or to issue and resolve legal proceedings. We also retain personal data beyond the duration of the services that we provide as necessary to meet our legal and regulatory obligations to retain such information under applicable law. We may also retain aggregate information beyond this time for statistical analysis and research purposes, and to help us improve our services. Old media (PC and server disks, tapes, etc.) are stored and then destroyed using a reputable specialist organisation.

Retention periods are kept under review. There may be some cases in which we are obliged to delete personal data that we process, such as data that has been processed in breach of applicable law or to comply with a legal obligation to delete it. In other cases, there may be no specific time limit applicable to the retention of particular personal data and, in determining how long particular personal data will be retained for, we will use criteria including whether (a) the data is no longer necessary for the purpose for which it was collected and, (b) the data can, if required, be collected again without undue delay or difficulty.   

Sharing of Your Data

We may share your data with:

Other entities in the Alchelyst group, subject to any applicable confidentiality laws. We do this because we are a global organisation and work with clients across multiple jurisdictions. Sharing records and the results of due diligence and risk assessments enables us to provide our services more efficiently and develop our relationship with you. Access to shared data is limited only to personnel who need access to carry out their assigned duties and, where relevant, to those who are entitled to receive it under applicable confidentiality laws.

  • Professional advisers, including lawyers, and tax advisers.
  • Screening service providers, including due diligence and financial crime screening database providers.

When sharing data about you with other entities in the Alchelyst group, or if it is necessary to provide you with our services, your data may be transferred outside the country in which it was collected. If your data is collected within the European Economic Area (EEA), this means that your data may be transferred outside of it, including to a country or organisation that may not have data protection standards equivalent to those in the EEA. If your data is collected outside of the EEA, this means that your data may be transferred into the EEA.

Where we transfer personal data to a country or organisation outside the EEA, we will only do so where:

The country or organisation we are transferring your data to is recognised by the European Commission as providing adequate data protection standards; or
