WH Ireland is or may be providing, or has or may have provided within the previous 12 months, significant advice or investment services in relation to some of the investments concerned or related investments. Recommendations may or may not be suitable for individual clients and some securities carry a greater risk than others.

No responsibility is taken for any losses, including, without limitation, any consequential loss, which may be incurred by clients acting upon such recommendations.

To provide services to you we will need to have personal information about you which may be held by us in physical or electronic form ('data'). This data will be received and held by us in confidence. You agree that we may process this data in connection with the provision of services to you which may include our making data available to our agents for the purpose of executing orders, settlement of any resulting transaction, holding investments and money for you or any related purpose. You understand this may include our transmitting data to third parties including our Nominees and agents who may be outside the EEA (including the USA) should you ask us to execute an order relating to overseas investments. You understand that should we do so the data will be subject to different legal and regulatory practices from the UK and may not be subject to the same level of protection.
At account opening or as may otherwise be determined, enquiries will be made at a Credit Reference Agency to establish your credit worthiness and to assist us to verify your identity. This will involve checking the details you supply with any of the Agency's databases. A scoring system may be used. A record of this search will be held by the Agency and may be shared with other businesses.
We may also make a search of the directors of limited companies.
Unless you tell us that you do not want us to do so we may also use this data to tell you about other products and services we may offer.
The data you give us may be disclosed as required by law or shared with other organisations in order to protect ourselves against fraud or passed to the relevant authorities if we suspect money laundering or other criminal activity.
These uses of your personal information are covered by our registrations pursuant to the Data Protection Act 1998 and under the Act you are entitled, on payment of the appropriate fee, to obtain a copy of the data we hold about you.
We reserve the right to record telephone calls for the protection of both parties.
