The American Expat Finance News Journal (AXFNJ) was co-founded and is run by Helen Burggraf, an American expatriate based in London, who writes and edits almost all of its content.
Helen Burggraf and the AXFNJ respect their readers’ right to privacy.
The data controller of such personal information of the AXFNJ’s readers is, in most circumstances, Ms. Burggraf.
What personal information about its readers the AXFNJ collects, and why
The AXFNJ publishes news and features about financial, savings, tax and citizenship topics presumed to be of interest to a global American expatriate audience.

Who the AXFNJ may (but doesn’t always) share its readers’ personal information with
We may disclose readers’ personal information to the following categories of recipients:
(ii) to any competent law enforcement body, regulatory, government agency, court or other third party, if there a reason has arisen to believe such disclosure is necessary
(for example: (a) as a matter of applicable law or regulation; or
(b) to exercise, establish or defend our legal rights);
(iii) to an actual or potential buyer (and its agents and advisers, should it have any) in connection with any actual or proposed purchase, merger or acquisition of any part of our business; or
(iv) other persons, should a situation arise in which we have a legitimate reason to do so, and in which we are otherwise permitted to do so by law.
The legal basis under which any personal
information processing takes place
Our legal basis for collecting and using the personal information described above will depend on the personal information concerned, and the specific context in which we collect it.
However, we will normally collect personal information from readers and visitors to the website only in situations in which the processing of this information is in our legitimate interest (such as our interest in improving the content we provide on our website), and when these legitimate interests are not overridden by our readers/visitors’ own rights; or, where we have these readers/visitors’ consent to do so.
In some cases, we may also have a legal obligation to collect personal information from our readers, or may otherwise need such personal information to protect these readers’ vital interests, or those of another person.
