Intra-Group Personal Data Protection Statement

Bloomberg Finance L.P., its operating agent Bloomberg L.P., and affiliates (“Bloomberg”) are committed to compliance with their data protection obligations throughout the world. This Intra-Group Personal Data Protection Statement (“Statement”) sets out the privacy principles Bloomberg follows with respect to personal information that it transfers from the European Union, European Economic Area, and Switzerland (collectively, “EU”) or the United Kingdom (“UK”), in accordance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) and UK GDPR.

Bloomberg has implemented robust processes and protections to meet the requirements of transferring personal information to third countries in accordance with applicable data protection laws. Accordingly, the relevant Bloomberg group companies have entered into Intra-Group Personal Data Protection Agreements (“IGAs”) to ensure that personal information transferred from the EU or UK is subject to appropriate safeguards, and to clearly identify the Bloomberg group companies responsible for transfers of personal information from the EU or UK.

The IGAs incorporate unchanged EU Commission Standard Contractual Clauses (“SCCs”), which include specific obligations and rights around transfers of personal information, and ensure that any personal information leaving the EU and/ or UK will be transferred by Bloomberg in compliance with applicable EU and UK data protection laws.  The IGAs include the operational procedures and security measures we use to maintain the accuracy and integrity of personal information and protect personal information.

  • Governance
    We regularly review and update our governance framework, including roles and responsibilities of personnel, and maintain a working group to oversee data protection regulation compliance and document results and decisions as they relate to personal information management.
  • Accountability and Recordkeeping
    We map the personal data life cycle and maintain a personal data map inventory, including documenting personal data flows within Bloomberg’s systems and any disclosures to third-party systems.
  • Security
    We invest in and maintain organisational, technical, and physical safeguards intended to ensure the protection of personal information. We engage in ongoing monitoring and testing of the efficacy of these safeguards. Our data centers are dedicated solely to our products, services, and operations, and have secure and monitored access controls.
  • Privacy By Design
    We integrate personal data mapping and accountability into our product design processes, and build personal data security into our development and product life cycles.
  • Administrative controls
    We regularly review and update our policies, procedures, and controls to address our data protection obligations. We conduct data protection executive education and tailored training programs for data protection compliance.

The Bloomberg group companies involved in personal information transfer and management are identified in the IGAs as Data Exporter(s) or Data Importer(s). Bloomberg is an independent Data Controller unless otherwise specified. With respect to specific products and services where Bloomberg acts as a Data Processor to our customers, we make available to our customers additional data processing terms, including unchanged EU-Commission approved Controller-to-Processor SCCs. Products where Bloomberg acts as data processor include Bloomberg Vault and Bloomberg Regulatory Reporting Services.

Law Enforcement Data Request Statement

Bloomberg will not disclose client data (which may include personal information, together “client data”) except in response to requests from law enforcement, governmental, or regulatory agencies only where required to do so by law (for example, in response to valid and properly-served legal process such as a subpoena or search warrant). Bloomberg will attempt to notify its client prior to disclosing client data unless: (1) prohibited by applicable law from doing so, or (2) there are clear indications of unlawful conduct in connection with the client’s use of Bloomberg services. Notwithstanding any of the foregoing, Bloomberg reserves the right to respond to urgent law enforcement requests if Bloomberg
believes in good faith that an emergency involving imminent danger of death or serious physical injury justifies such disclosure.
