2. What Does This Policy Cover?
3. What Is Personal Data?
Personal data is defined by the UK General Data Protection Regulation (the “UK GDPR”), as ‘any information relating to an identifiable person who can be directly or indirectly identified in particular by reference to an identifier’ and the law governing its collection, storage, use and deletion’ includes the UK GDPR, the Data Protection Act 2018 and the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (the “EU GDPR”) (which We are also subject to in relation to services we offer in the European Economic Area (EEA)) (collectively, “the Data Protection Legislation”).
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.
4. What Are My Rights?
Under the Data Protection Legislation, you have the following rights, which We will always work to uphold:
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 10.
It is important that your personal data is kept accurate and up to date. If any of the personal data We hold about you changes, please keep us informed as long as We have that data.
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. We would welcome the opportunity to resolve your concerns ourselves, however, so please contact us first, using the details in Part 10.
5. What Personal Data Do You Collect and How?
Subject to the following, We do not collect any personal data from you. We do not place cookies on your computer or device, nor do We use any other means of data collection.
Our Site collects certain information automatically, including your IP address, the type of browser you are using and certain other non-personal data about your computer or device such as your operating system type or version, and display resolution.
If you send us an email, We may collect your name, your email address, and any other information which you choose to give us. For the purposes of the Data Protection Legislation, we are the data controller responsible for such personal data.
The lawful basis under the Data Protection Legislation that allows us to use such information is article 6(1)(f) of the UK GDPR which allows us to process personal data when it is necessary for the purposes of our legitimate interests, in this case, the proper operation and functionality of Our Site. If you contact us as described above, you consent to our use of your personal data to contact you. In this case, our lawful basis for using your personal data will be article 6(1)(a) of the UK GDPR, which allows us to use your personal data with your consent for a particular purpose or purposes.
6. How Do You Use My Personal Data?
Where We collect any personal data, it will be processed and stored securely, for no longer than is necessary in light of the reason(s) for which it was first collected. We will comply with our obligations and safeguard your rights under the Data Protection Legislation at all times. For more details on security see Part 7, below.
As stated above, We do not generally collect any personal data directly from you, but if you contact us and We obtain your personal details from your email, We may use them to respond to your email. The other technical data referred to above is necessary for the technical operation of Our Site and will not be used in any way to personally identify you.
We will keep your personal data while we are providing services to you. Thereafter, we will keep your personal data for as long as is necessary: to respond to any questions, complaints or claims made by you or on your behalf; to show that we treated you fairly; to keep records required by law. We will not keep your personal data for longer than necessary. Different retention periods apply for different types of personal
We will not share any of your personal data with any third parties for any purposes other than storage on an email hosting server.
7. How and Where Do You Store My Data?
We may store some or all of your personal data in countries that are not part of the European Economic Area (the “EEA” consists of all EU member states, plus Norway, Iceland, and Liechtenstein). These are known as “third countries” and may not have data protection laws that are as strong as those in the UK and/or the EEA. This means that We will take additional steps in order to ensure that your personal data is treated just as safely and securely as it would be within the UK and under the Data Protection Legislation as follows:
We will only transfer your personal data to third countries whose levels of data protection are deemed ‘adequate’ by the European Commission. More information is available from the European Commission.
Where We transfer your data to a third party based in the US, the data may be protected if they are part of the EU-US Privacy Shield. This requires that third party to provide data protection to standards similar to those in Europe. More information is available from the European Commission.
Please contact us using the details below in Part 10 for further information about the particular data protection mechanisms used by us when transferring your personal data to a third country.
Personal data security is essential to us, and to protect personal data, We take the following measures:
8. Do You Share My Personal Data?
We will not share any of your personal data with any third parties for any purposes, subject to the following exceptions.
We may contract with the following third parties for hosting and data storage purposes.
If any of your personal data is transferred to a third party, as described above, We will take steps to ensure that your personal data is handled safely, securely, and in accordance with your rights, our obligations, and the third party’s obligations under the law, as described above in Part 7.
If any personal data is transferred outside of the EEA, We will take suitable steps in order to ensure that your personal data is treated just as safely and securely as it would be within the UK and under the Data Protection Legislation, as explained above in Part 7.
In some limited circumstances, We may be legally required to share certain personal data, which might include yours, if we are involved in legal proceedings or complying with legal obligations, a court order, or the instructions of a government authority.
9. How Can I Access My Personal Data?
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 should be made in writing and sent to the email or postal addresses shown in Part 10.
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 respond to your subject access request within a month of receipt 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. You will be kept fully informed of our progress.
10. How Do I Contact You?
To contact us about anything to do with your personal data and data protection, including to make a subject access request, please visit our contact us page and use any of the available contact methods.
We may change this Privacy Notice from time to time. This may be necessary, for example, if the law changes, or if We change our business in a way that affects personal data protection.
