We will only use your personal data when the law allows us to. This can be for a number of reasons but those which are most common are set out below.  But remember, this list is not exhaustive:

  • Where you have consented before the processing.
  • Where we need to perform the contract, we are about to enter into or have entered into with you.
  • Where it is necessary for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) and your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests.
  • Where we need to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation.

It’s really important for you to understand that in general, we do not rely on consent as a legal basis for processing your personal data, other than in relation to sending third party direct marketing communications to you via email or text message.  And remember, you are in charge and so you have the right to withdraw consent to marketing at any time by contacting us – you’ve got our details right towards the start of this policy, so do use it.

To give you more information on the “why?”, “what’s our purpose?” of all this, have a look below at a description of the ways we plan to use your personal data, and which of the legal bases we rely on to do so, together with our legitimate interests are where appropriate.   We are allowed to process your personal data for more than one lawful ground, and for this, we will look at the specific purpose for which we are using your data.

Where we need to collect personal data by law, or under the terms of a contract we have with you and you fail to provide that data when requested, we may not be able to perform the contract we have or are trying to enter into with you (for example, to provide you with goods or services). In this case, we may have to cancel a product or service you have with us but we will notify you if this is the case at the time. So, let us do what we need to get your contracts performed and give us the details we need, now that you know how we keep them safe and what we need them for. And remember to tell us about the changes!

YES, WE DO MARKETING OURSELVES

We may use your Identity, Contact, Technical, Usage and Profile Data to form a view on what we think you may want or need, or what may be of interest to you. This is how we decide which products, services and offers may be relevant for you (we call this marketing).   We won’t bombard you but unless you ask us not to (see below for how you opt-out – it’s easy and you are in charge), we will send you marketing communications from us if you have requested information from us or purchased services from us and, in each case, you have not opted out of receiving that marketing. 

THIRD-PARTY MARKETING ‎

We just don’t do it.  You can be sure that when you give us your personal data, we keep it personal.  We will never share your personal data with any third party for marketing purposes.

OPTING OUT ‎

Remember what we said?  You’re in charge?  You can ask us to stop sending you marketing messages at any time by contacting us at any time.

COOKIES ‎

Lots of people don’t like cookies, while others love the world it can open up to them.  So, which are you?  You can set your browser to refuse all or some browser cookies or to alert you when websites set or access cookies.   But remember that if you want to look at everything on our website you may find that you are restricted if you disable or refuse cookies.

CHANGE OF PURPOSE ‎

We’ve told you about the why, the purpose, for which we collect your personal data.  And in addition to this, we can now tell you that we will only use your personal data 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 this isn’t enough and you would like an explanation about how this processing for the new purpose is compatible with the original purpose, please contact us on [email protected] If we need to use your personal data for an unrelated purpose, we’ll tell you and explain the legal basis of this.  And rest assured.  While we may process your personal data without your knowledge or consent but we will only do this in compliance with the above rules and where this is required or permitted by law.

INTERNATIONAL TRANSFERS ‎

It’s a global village but your personal data may not be transferred or stored outside the EEA or the country where you and your authorised users are located save that your personal data may be transferred to the United States of America.  This is allowed because the US has had an adequacy decision which has been made in accordance with GDPR Art.45.   We can give you more details on all of this if you need it.

SECURITY AND RETENTION

We promise you that the information you give to us is stored on secure servers.   But you have your part to play too and if we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password that enables you to access certain parts of our Sites or platforms, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. Please do not to share a password with anyone.   At our end, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way.   Added to that we have procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach which include notifying you and any applicable regulator where the law says we must.

And the law requires us to do other things too.  We will keep basic information about our clients (including Contact, Identity, Financial and Transaction Data) for six years after they cease being clients for tax, regulatory and insurance purposes,  We might 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.

YOUR RIGHTS IN CONNECTION WITH PERSONAL INFORMATION - ACCESS, ‎CORRECTION, ERASURE, AND RESTRICTION ‎

As we say, you are in charge and under certain circumstances, the law gives you the right to take certain actions.

This means that you have the right to do the following:

  • Request access to your personal information (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
  • Request correction of the personal information that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected.
  • Request erasure of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal information where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal information where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below).
  • Object to 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.
  • Request the restriction of processing of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of personal information about you, for example, if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it.
  • Request the transfer of your personal information to another party.


If you want to review, verify, correct or request the erasure of your personal information, object to the processing of your personal data, or request that we transfer a copy of your personal information to another party, please contact the data privacy manager in writing. Call us and we can make arrangements.

NO FEE USUALLY REQUIRED ‎

You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). But, if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive we can ask you to pay or refuse to comply with your request.

WHAT WE MAY NEED FROM YOU ‎

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data 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.

TIME LIMIT TO RESPOND ‎

We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may 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.
