How is your personal information collected?
We typically collect personal information from you directly when you enter your personal information into our website. We also gather personal information automatically through the use of cookies and analytic services.

If you fail to provide personal information
If you fail to provide certain information when requested, we may not be able to perform our obligations to you or to send you information that you would like to receive from us (such as newsletters).

This may mean that we refuse to enter into or cancel any contract between us, or refuse to provide you with a service that you would like us to provide.

Data Sharing and Transfer
We may share your personal information with third parties where required by law, to parties who are under contract to provide services to us (our “data processors”) where the use of your personal information forms part of their contractual duties, and with other companies in our group of companies where they have a legitimate interest in receiving that information.
We may also share your personal information with other third parties, for example, in the context of the possible sale or restructuring of the business.

Except as required by Google for the use of Google Analytics we do not transfer your personal information outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”). Google is part of the EU-US Privacy shield which requires them to protect your personal information in a similar way as it is within the EEA.

Data security
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 have a policy to limit access to your personal information to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a legitimate reason to receive it. 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 data security breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected breach where we are legally required to do so.

How long will you use my information for?
We will only retain your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal information, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure, the purposes for which we use your personal information and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

Your duty to inform us of changes
It is important that the personal information we hold about you is accurate and current otherwise we may not be able to send you emails that you wish to receive.

Your rights in connection with personal information
Under certain circumstances, by law, you have the right to:

  • 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 the 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 stop processing personal information where we are relying on a legitimate interest and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground.
  • 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 (in limited circumstances and where this is technically possible).

If you want to exercise these rights, please contact us.

Your right to withdraw consent
Where you may have provided your consent to the collection, processing and transfer of your personal information for a specific purpose (such as opting-in to receiving marketing emails) you have the right to withdraw your consent for that specific processing at any time. To withdraw your consent, please contact us. You also can withdraw your consent to receive future marketing information from us by clicking the link at the bottom of any email from us.

Once we have received notification that you have withdrawn your consent, we will no longer process your information for the purpose or purposes you originally agreed to, unless we have another legitimate basis for doing so in law. Your withdrawal of consent does not affect the lawfulness of our use of your personal information up to the time that you let us know that you have withdrawn your consent.

Changes to this privacy policy
We reserve the right to update this privacy policy at any time, and we will provide you with a new privacy policy when we make any substantial updates. We may also notify you in other ways from time to time about the processing of your personal information.
