Taking your privacy as seriously as you do

At American Express, we value your trust and respect your privacy. Our Data Protection & Privacy Principles emphasise our commitment to protect your personal data.

How do we use the information we collect about you?

Where it is not apparent from the products or services you require or the nature of your relationship with us, we will tell you how your personal data will be processed. You can find specific information about our practices including what information we collect, who we share it with and how we safeguard it:

  • Within our Privacy Notice specific to your product; and
  • Through our Online Privacy Statement which informs you about our online practices.

How do we share your information?

We only share your personal data with third parties where it is necessary to provide you with products or services or as part of the nature of our relationship with you, where we have previously informed or been authorised by you, in connection with our efforts to reduce fraud or criminal activity, or as permitted by law.

How do we keep and safeguard your information?

We keep your personal data confidential and limit access to your personal data to those who specifically need it. This includes using both technical and physical security measures to protect your personal information. These measures include computer safeguards and secured files and facilities. We also take steps to securely destroy personal data once it is no longer needed.
