The information which you provide to us may include information about other individuals who are associated with the management of your business, the administration of your account with us or, if you are a limited company, corporate contacts within your business. If you provide us with information about such individuals, it is important that you provide them with a copy of this Notice prior to providing us with the information and that you provide them with any updated Notices we provide from time to time.

We will only use this personal information for the purpose of providing you with any information you request from us, or to deal with your enquiry. If you have provided any feedback to us, then we may use this feedback to improve our Website and/or the services we provide.
It is in our legitimate interests to process your personal information in this way, as it is necessary to respond to your request or enquiry and to help improve our Website and our services, and these interests are not overridden by any detriment to your rights or freedoms.
We will also keep a record of our correspondence.

This information is only processed by us in a way that does not identify individuals. We do not make any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.

We will also disclose this information to selected third parties, including analytics and search engine providers, that assist us with the improvement and optimisation of our Website (see the Disclosure of your Information section below for more information).
It is in our legitimate interests to use this personal information for the limited purposes set out above, which are not overridden by any detriment to your rights and freedoms, particularly as the information is only processed by us in a way that does not identify individuals.

You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time by contacting us using the details set out in the “Contacting Us” section. If you request it, we will stop sending you the newsletter.
CHANGE OF PURPOSE
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 we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.
DISCLOSURE OF YOUR INFORMATION
Our Website may, from time to time, contain links to and from other websites, plug-ins and applications. Clicking on those links or enabling those connections may allow third parties to collect or share information about you. We do not control those third-party websites and are not responsible for their privacy notices. When you leave our Website, we encourage you to read the privacy notice of every website you visit before you provide them with personal information.
We may share your personal information with the third parties set out below:
We require all service providers and Group companies that we share your personal information with to respect the privacy and security of your personal information and to treat it in accordance with the law. We do not allow our third-party service providers, including Group companies, to use your personal information for their own purposes and only permit them to process your personal information for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.
Most of the personal information we collect about you is based in the United Kingdom or in some cases, a service provider or their sub-processor may be based elsewhere in the European Union (EU) and so, they are required to comply with European data protection law. On occasion, we may appoint a third-party service provider whose operation or a server or sub-processor may be based outside of the EU. As part of our Vendor Management Policy, we carry out due diligence on our third-party providers and assess whether your personal information will be transferred to them or accessed by them from outside the EU. If that is the case, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:
If you would like to know the specific mechanism used by us when transferring your personal information out of the EU, please contact us using the details set out in the “Contacting Us” section at the end of this Notice.
STORAGE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We will only keep your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfil the relevant purpose(s) we collected it for, as set out above in this Notice, and for as long as we are required to keep it for legal purposes.
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal information, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal information, the purposes for which we process your personal information and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
For example, by law, we have to keep basic information about our customers (including contact, identity, financial and transactional data) for six years after they cease being customers for tax purposes.
In some circumstances:
We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal information from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed.
In addition, we limit access to your personal information to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal information on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal information breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator where we are legally required to do so.
Data protection laws provide you with the following rights, to:
You also have the right to object to the processing of your personal information where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal information for direct marketing purposes.
You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal information (or to exercise any of the other rights above). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request for access is clearly unfounded or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with the request in such circumstances.
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access the information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is another appropriate security measure to ensure that personal information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.
You have the right to make a complaint at any time to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), the UK supervisory authority for data protection issues. The ICO can be contacted by telephone on 0303 123 1113 or by post as follows: Information Commissioners Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF or via email at email@example.com. We would, however, appreciate the chance to deal with your concerns before you approach the ICO, so please contact us in the first instance using any of the details set out below in the “Contacting Us” section.
