Purpose of Data Collection

FRM collects information about EU/EEA Data Subjects when conducting investigations on behalf of and at the request of its Subscribers. FRM's Subscribers are generally in the process of considering, or may have already consummated, a commercial transaction or investment being made with the Data Subject. FRM's Subscribers are in most instances subject to legal frameworks pertaining to anti-money laundering and/or anti-bribery laws. These frameworks place a legal burden upon FRM's Subscribers to know Data Subjects with whom the Subscriber is transacting. Subscribers may also hire FRM to perform investigations as part of a Data Subject's position, usually as an officer, director, shareholder, or other key control function of an organization. The majority of FRM's investigations of EU/EEA Data Subjects involve the use of independent agents in Europe who research records in the public domain, such as published articles, searches of corporate registries, and other European public and regulatory databases and information repositories. FRM and its agents also research education and employment information of Data Subjects for the purposes of FRM's investigatory work. FRM may also perform interviews as a part of FRM's investigatory work. The investigation brief, investigation results, and any investigation related information may include the following information about Data Subjects: personal details; family details; lifestyle and social circumstances; goods and services; financial details; education and employment details; physical or mental health details; racial or ethnic origin details; religious preferences or other beliefs of a similar nature; trade union membership; criminal or regulatory offences, including alleged offences.
