It may also be processed by individuals operating outside of the EEA who work for our affiliates in the United States or elsewhere or for one of our suppliers.

Where we transfer your personal data outside the EEA, we will ensure that it is protected in a manner that is consistent with how your personal data will be protected by us in the EEA.

This can be done in a number of ways, for instance:

5.1 the country that we send the data to might be approved by the European Commission as offering a sufficient level of protection;

5.2 the recipient might have signed up to a contract based on “model contractual clauses” approved by the European Commission, obliging them to protect your personal data.

In other circumstances the law may permit us to otherwise transfer your personal data outside the EEA. In all cases, however, we will ensure that any transfer of your personal data is compliant with data protection law.

You can obtain more details about the protection given to your personal data when it is transferred outside the EEA (including a copy of the standard data protection clauses which we have entered into with certain recipients of your personal data) by contacting us in accordance with the “Contacting us” section below.


How long we hold your personal data for will vary. The relevant retention period will be determined by various criteria including:

6.1 the purpose for which we are using the data – we will need to keep the data for as long as is necessary for that purpose; and

6.2 legal obligations – laws or regulations may set a minimum period for which we have to keep your personal data.

In general, we retain information about you throughout your employment with us, although some information will be deleted in accordance with our Data Retention Policy while you remain employed. Some information will be retained after your employment has ended, if required by law or necessary for the purpose for which the data are processed.

As a general principle, we do not retain employee information (except in an anonymised / statistical form) for longer than we need it, given the purposes for which it is stored. Point72 Poland’s Data Retention Policy, copy of which may be provided by the Program Administrator, contains more specific information as to the periods after which employee information in various categories will be deleted.
