- What Does This Policy Cover?
- What is Personal Data?
Personal data is defined by the General Data Protection Regulation (EU Regulation 2016/679) (the “GDPR”) as ‘any information relating to an identifiable person who can be directly or indirectly identified in particular by reference to an identifier’.
Personal data is, in simpler terms, any information about you that enables you to be identified. Personal data covers obvious information such as your name and contact details, but it also covers less obvious information such as identification numbers, electronic location data, and other online identifiers.
- What Are My Rights?
Under the GDPR, you have the following rights, which we will always work to uphold:
- b) The right to access the personal data we hold about you. Part 11 will tell you how to do this.
- c) The right to have your personal data rectified if any of your personal data held by [us is inaccurate or incomplete. Please contact us using the details in Part 12 to find out more.
- d) The right to be forgotten, i.e. the right to ask us to delete or otherwise dispose of any of your personal data that we have. Please contact us using the details in Part 12 to find out more.
- e) The right to restrict (i.e. prevent) the processing of your personal data.
- f) The right to object to us using your personal data for a particular purpose or purposes.
- g) The right to data portability. This means that, if you have provided personal data to us directly, we are using it with your consent or for the performance of a contract, and that data is processed using automated means, you can ask us for a copy of that personal data to re-use with another service or business in many cases.
- h) Rights relating to automated decision-making and profiling. We do not use your personal data in this way.
For more information about our use of your personal data or exercising your rights as outlined above, please contact us using the details provided in Part 12.
Further information about your rights can also be obtained from the Information Commissioner’s Office or your local Citizens Advice Bureau.
If you have any cause for complaint about our use of your personal data, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioner’s Office.

- How Do You Use My Personal Data?
Under the GDPR, we must always have a lawful basis for using personal data. This may be because the data is necessary for our performance of a contract with you, because you have consented to our use of your personal data, or because it is in our legitimate business interests to use it. Your personal data may be used for one of the following purposes:
* Supplying our products and services to you. Your personal details are required in order for us to enter into or perform an existing a contract with you or your employer.
* Personalising and tailoring our products and services for you.

You will not be sent any unlawful marketing or spam. [We will always work to fully protect your rights and comply with our obligations under the GDPR and the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003, and you will always have the opportunity to opt-out.
- How Long Will You Keep My Personal Data?
We will not keep your personal data for any longer than is necessary in light of the reason(s) for which it was first collected. You also have the right to request that the data we hold about you be erased.
When considering how long we will keep your personal data we will look at the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those through other means. We will never keep data for longer than we are permitted to under data protection law.
We may also retain information (to the extent permitted by law) in order to comply with any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements, prevent fraud, collect charges, resolve disputes and enforce any contractual obligations.
- How and Where Do You Store or Transfer My Personal Data?
The data we collect from you will usually be stored on our secure servers within the European Economic Area (“EEA”) (or on our partners’ secure servers on our behalf) which is governed by strict data protection laws.
However, your personal data may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the EEA. It may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for us or for one of our suppliers or partners. By submitting your personal data or continuing to access our websites, products and services you agree to this transfer, storing or processing. If we do transfer your data outside of the EEA we will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy notice and our legal obligations under data protection laws by using one of the following approved safeguards:
- by only transferring personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data by the European Commission;
- by implementing contracts approved by the European Commission which give personal data the same protection it has in the EEA;
- by transferring personal data to US partners who are part of the Privacy Sheild which requires them to provide similar protection to personal data as applies to organisations in the EEA;
- Do You Share My Personal Data?
We may share your personal data with:
- other companies in our group. This includes subsidiaries and our parent company and its subsidiaries. Any information shared is for a legitimate business purpose as set out in this notice;
- our professional advisors, service providers and agents (including their subcontractors) or third parties which process information on our behalf generally to enable us to perform our contract with you or your employer;
- third parties used to facilitate payment transactions;
- credit reference and fraud prevention agencies;
- regulatory, governmental and law enforcement bodies as is reasonably required pursuant to legal proceedings or to comply with a legal obligation;
- other third parties for marketing purposes where we reasonably believe the products and services offered by those third parties may be of interest to you or your employer;
- to any prospective seller or buyer or seller of such business or assets;
- anyone else you have consented to us sending information to;
Any such sharing shall be limited to the minimum necessary pursuant to the purpose of the sharing and shall otherwise be in accordance with current data protection law.
- Can I Withhold Information?
You may access Our Site without providing any personal data at all.
- How Can I Access My Personal Data?
You have the right to access information held about you.
You can do this in accordance with the process under GDPR and guidance on this can be found at https://ico.org.uk or (if outside of the UK) in guidance issued your local data protection authority.
If you want to know what personal data we have about you, you can ask us for details of that personal data and for a copy of it (where any such personal data is held). This is known as a “subject access request”.
All subject access requests must be made in writing and sent to the email or postal addresses shown in Part 12.
There is not normally any charge for a subject access request. If your request is ‘manifestly unfounded or excessive’ (for example, if you make repetitive requests) a fee may be charged to cover our administrative costs in responding.
We will normally respond to your subject access request within 7 days and, in any case, not more than one month of receiving it. Normally, we aim to provide a complete response, including a copy of your personal data within that time. In some cases, however, particularly if your request is more complex, more time may be required up to a maximum of three months from the date we receive your request.
