Information is collected from you when you submit your details on our site. The information we collect is clearly set out on the web page on which we collect it.
We introduce consumers to other firms who provide regulated financial services to consumers. Our involvement is merely to inform and connect. Consumers can choose to engage with us and our role will be to put inquirers in touch with an appropriate business that can offer them regulated advice, make arrangements for them and provide ongoing advice and support if needed. We offer this service to anyone wishing to inquire about financial planning services, mortgages and pensions.
Why we collect information
The information you supply on any of our pages will be used for the sole purpose of the form, i.e. the service requested. We do not share your data with any other party other than the individual financial adviser or firm to handle your enquiry.
Who we disclose it to
We will only pass on information about you as an individual to one financial advisor to enable us to perform services requested by you. By submitting your details, you agree to be contacted by an FCA regulated financial advisor. Your details will not be passed to any other parties without exception nor will you receive any marketing, promotional or similar material of any description from us.
We will not make a personal recommendation for you, any information we provide is for guidance purposes only and should not be construed as personalised advice.
We do not sell, arrange or review financial products. You cannot buy a product from us. Our role is to direct you to assist you in obtaining advice and/or products from a bonafide regulated entity.
Inquirers will not be charged for our services.

Full details of this registration can be accessed on the ICO Data Controller register here – https://ico.org.uk/about-the-ico/what-we-do/register-of-data-controllers.
We will comply with data protection law and principles, which means that your information will be:
- Used lawfully, fairly and in a transparent way;
- Collected only for valid purposes that we have clearly explained to you and not used in any way that is incompatible with those purposes;
- Relevant to the purposes we have told you about and limited only to those purposes;
- Accurate and kept up to date;

Accessing and updating your personal information
We will always let you have a copy of personal information we have about you, should you request it, and you may correct it if you wish. If you wish to obtain this data, email [email protected].
Legitimate Interest Justification
The forms on our websites introduce a customer looking for the service in question. It is clear that contact details will be used by the partner we connect them with in order to satisfy their request. No further marketing or processing will be conducted by Prime Direct Limited. For this reason, we do not request or rely on ’consent’ as provided by opt in check boxes as the legal basis for data processing. This Opt in method is appropriate for Websites providing further data sharing with third parties unrelated to the initial processing reason. For clarity if a financial advisor is looking to provide “other” ongoing services to the customer or marketing to them beyond the initial reason for their enquiry, they will need to ensure they gain consent directly as part of their initial interaction with them.
