At the same time, some of the personal data is collected orally or in writing pursuant to laws, regulations, rules or codes binding on Global Mastermind Group.


2.     Failure to supply such personal data may result in the Group being unable to open or continue the Account or establish or continue credit facilities or provide Securities brokerage, nominee and investment advisory services.


3.     The personal data that is collected from Client in the ordinary course of the continuation of the business relationship. The purposes for which personal data relating to the Client may be used are as follows:

4.     Please note that the Group may not be able to use Client’s personal data for direct marketing purposes unless it has received consent from the Client (which includes an indication of no objection). The Group shall without imposing any Charges on the Client cease using his personal data in direct marketing if so requested by the Client. Any such request can be sent to the Data Protection Officer of the Group.


5.     Personal data held by the Group relating to the Client will be kept confidential but the Group may disclose or transfer such information to the following parties within or outside Hong Kong to the extent permitted by law:


a.     any agent, contractor or third party service provider who provides administrative, telecommunications, computer (including computers servers and cloud-based information technology services), payment or Securities clearing, printing or other services to the Group in connection with the operation of its business;

g.     any person in the event that the Group’s interests require disclosure.


6.     In the course of performing our duties, the Group may, as permitted by law, match, compare, disclose, transfer or exchange any personal data provided by, or hereafter obtained from the Client for these or any other purposes by the Group, with data held by government bodies, other regulatory authorities, corporations, organizations or individuals in Hong Kong or overseas for the purpose of verifying those data.

Whilst Global Mastermind Group has used its best endeavour to ensure the security and reliability of its system, the reliability of telecommunications may be affected as a result of unforeseeable circumstances. The Client should therefore pay attention to this when transmitting personal data via electronic means.
