On 31 January, the United Kingdom leaves the European Union with an agreed withdrawal agreement in place.
Elavon Financial Services DAC (“Elavon”) is committed to providing uninterrupted services to all our customers during and after the withdrawal process. Elavon is licensed by the Central Bank of Ireland and has passporting rights into all EU/EEA countries including our branches in Germany, Poland, Spain, Belgium and Norway as well as the UK. For the UK, we are establishing a “third-country” branch to maintain uninterrupted service to our UK customers post-Brexit.
Based on our assessment to date and in interactions with card associations and other partners, we do not anticipate that there will be material changes in how we engage with or provide services to our customers, vendors or partners based solely or operating between the UK and the EU. Elavon’s Brexit Programme Office will continue to monitor developments and assess these for the potential impact on our operations during the ongoing Brexit transition period scheduled to end 31 December 2020. If and when material changes are identified, we will advise customers as required on a case-by-case basis.
Elavon will continue to collect, use, share and keep your data as set out in Elavon Financial Service’s Privacy Statement, which is compliant with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation. Our processes enable data to be transferred both legally in and outside the EEA. Whilst, we do not expect to change these processes in the short-term due to Brexit, we will continue to monitor any divergence in data protection laws between the UK and EU and ensure compliance with all relevant laws. Regardless of where we process your information, we will take appropriate steps to provide an adequate level of protection for your data.
