The majority of this information will be voluntarily disclosed by you to us in both offline and online circumstances.
The personal information will consist of contact details and professional information, eg job title. We do not collect any ‘sensitive’ personal data or personal data relating to children.
How Do We Use Your Personal Data?
Under data protection legislation, we must always have a lawful basis for using personal data. The legal grounds for processing your personal data are:
– for dealing efficiently with the matter for which you disclosed your data to us
– for the purposes of our legitimate interests, except where our interests are overridden by the interests, rights or freedoms of affected individuals (such as you). To determine this, we will consider a number of factors, such as what you were told at the time you provided your data, what your expectations are about the processing of the data, the nature of the data, and the impact of the processing on you
– it is necessary in order to comply with mandatory legal obligations to which we are subject.
With your permission and where permitted by law, we may also use your personal data for marketing purposes, which may include contacting you by email, telephone, text message or post with information, news and offers on our products and services. 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 data protection legislation, and you will always have the opportunity to opt out.
We will only use your personal data for the purpose(s) for which it was originally collected unless we reasonably believe that another purpose is compatible with that or those original purpose(s) and need to use your personal data for that purpose.
If we need to use your personal data for a purpose that is unrelated to, or incompatible with, the purpose(s) for which it was originally collected, we will inform you and explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.
In some circumstances, where permitted or required by law, we may process your personal data without your knowledge or consent. This will only be done within the bounds of data protection legislation and your legal rights.
How and Where Do We Store Your Personal Data?
We will store your personal data in the UK. This means that it will be fully protected under UK data protection legislation.
The security of your personal data is essential to us, and to protect your data, we take a number of important measures, including the following:
– limiting access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors, and other third parties with a legitimate need to know and ensuring that they are subject to duties of confidentiality
– ensuring that your data is held on secure servers
– ensuring that all reasonable technological and operational measures are taken to safeguard your data from unauthorised access
– reviewing the security of our IT systems on a regular basis
– having procedures for dealing with data breaches (the accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure of, or access to, your personal data) including notifying you and/or the Information Commissioner’s Office where we are legally required to do so.
How Long Will We Keep Your 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. We will comply with statutory time limits and regulator best practice guidelines.
Sharing Your Data
We may share your personal data with authorities, suppliers, contractors, agents, distributors and insurers. We may also share your personal data for the purpose of seeking legal or other profession advice or to respond to a legal request or comply with a legal obligation.
Some third parties may be located in countries outside Europe and the data protection laws of such countries may not be as strict as they are in the UK. In those circumstances, we will undertake an assessment of the level of protection in the light of the circumstances surrounding the transfer of your personal data. We will make sure that any transfers are not repetitive and only limited to the minimum amount of information necessary.
