Generally, we collect your personal information directly from you – in person, by telephone, text email and through your use of our website. In particular, this may occur in the following circumstances:
We may also collect information about you indirectly, including:
Under data protection law, we can only use your personal information if we have a proper reason for doing so, for example:
A legitimate interest is when we have a business or commercial reason to use your information, so long as this is not overridden by your own rights and interests.
Generally, we do not rely on consent as a legal basis for processing your personal information although we will get your consent before sending third party direct marketing communications to you via email or text message. You have the right to withdraw consent to marketing at any time by contacting us.
We will only use your personal information for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If we need to use your personal information for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and explain the legal basis which allows us to do so. Please note that we may process your personal information without your knowledge or consent, in compliance with the rules set out in this section, where this is required or permitted by law.
We will use your personal information for the following purposes and on the following grounds:
We may use your personal information to send you updates (by email, text message, telephone or post) about our services, including exclusive offers, promotions or information about new services.
We have a legitimate interest in processing your personal information for promotional purposes (see above). This means we do not usually need your consent to send you promotional communications. However, where consent is needed, we will ask for this consent separately and clearly.
We will not sell your personal information to or share it with other organisations for marketing purposes, except where we remain the controller of your personal information and share it with third parties who act as a data processor on our behalf and only process the personal information on our instructions and for the purposes set out above.
You have the right to opt out of receiving promotional communications at any time by:
We may ask you to confirm or update your marketing preferences if you instruct us to provide further services in the future, or if there are changes in the law, regulation, or the structure of our business.
We routinely share personal information with:
Your personal information may be held at our offices and those of our third party agencies, service providers, representatives and agents as described above. Some of these third parties may be based outside the European Economic Area. For more information, including on how we safeguard your personal information when this occurs, see Section 9 below.
We will keep your personal information while you have an account with us or we are providing services to you. Thereafter, we will keep your personal information for as long as is necessary:
We will not retain your personal information for longer than necessary for the purposes set out in this policy. Different retention periods apply for different types of personal information. If you want to learn more about our specific retention periods for your personal information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
When it is no longer necessary to retain your personal information we will securely destroy your personal information in accordance with applicable laws and regulations. In some circumstances we will anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes, in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.
If, to deliver our services to you, it is necessary for us to share or transfer your personal information outside the UK or the European Economic Area (EEA), then some additional safeguards will apply.
Where we need to make a transfer of this nature, we will only do so if such a transfer is safe and your personal information will be secure.
This means that when we transfer your personal information outside the UK or the EEA we will only do so where (i) there are Binding Corporate rules in place; or (ii) the country where we are making the transfer to is a country deemed by the European Commission to have an adequate level of protection in place for your personal information; or (iii) if there is no adequacy decision, where we have contractual arrangement with the service provider containing protections for your personal information (the EU Commission approved Standard Contractual Clauses, for example) or (iv) where the service provider is part of an approved scheme (Privacy Shield, for example).
Please contact us if you want further information on the mechanisms used by us when transferring your personal information out of the EEA.
Under the applicable data protection laws you have a number of rights, as set out below:
For further information on each of these rights, including the circumstances in which they apply, please contact us or see the Guidance from the UK Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) on individuals’ rights under the General Data Protection Regulation available via the following link: https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/guide-to-data-protection/guide-to-the-general-data-protection-regulation-gdpr/individual-rights/.
If you would like to exercise any of these rights, please contact us using our contact details set out below.
You will not have to pay a fee to access your data or to exercise any of the other rights. However, we may charge a reasonable fee of your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we could refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it could take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent personal information from being accidentally lost, used or accessed unlawfully, altered or disclosed. We limit access to your personal information to those who have a genuine business need to access it. Those processing your information will do so only in an authorised manner and are subject to a duty of confidentiality. We also have procedures in place to deal with any suspected data security breach. We will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected data security breach where we are legally required to do so.
We hope that we can resolve any query or concern you may raise about our use of your personal information. The General Data Protection Regulation also gives you right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the European Union (or European Economic Area) state where you work, normally live or where any alleged infringement of data protection laws occurred. The supervisory authority in the UK is the Information Commissioner who may be contacted at https://ico.org.uk/concerns or telephone: 0303 123 1113.
