8. The legal basis for which we process your Personal Data
Whenever we process your personal information, we must have something called a “legal basis” for what we do. The different legal bases we rely on are:
9. How Long Will You Keep My Personal Data?
We will not keep your personal data for any longer than is necessary considering the reason(s) for which it was first collected.
We will keep your personal data in connection with the services/products you have bought for 3 years after the last purchase. We need to retain this data for our own accounting purposes and for legal and tax purposes.
In terms of personal data we use for marketing, we will keep this data for as long as we are able to market to you and if you withdraw your consent or opt-out of marketing communications, we will keep your contact details only to ensure that we do not contact you again for marketing purposes.
10. How and Where Do You Store or Transfer My Personal Data?
We may store or transfer 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 GDPR as follows.
Where we transfer your data to a third party based in the US, this is only with Third Parties that 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 16 for further information about the particular data protection mechanism used by us when transferring your personal data to a third country.
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:
• Secure Servers/database
• Websites on SSL (https).
• Server/database software upgrades
• Encrypted passwords
11. Do You Share My Personal Data?
We contract with the other third parties for the following reasons, in some instances these third parties may require access to some or all your personal data that we hold;
• Email Service Provider - for the purpose of sending our emails
• CRM - for the purpose of our Customer Relationship Management System
If any of your personal data is required by 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.
If any personal data is transferred outside of the EEA, we will take suitable steps to ensure that your personal data is treated just as safely and securely as it would be within the UK and under the GDPR, as explained above in Part 10.
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.
12. How Can I Control My Personal Data?
In addition to your rights under the GDPR, set out in Part 5, when you submit personal data via our website, you may be given options to restrict our use of your personal data. We aim to give you strong controls on our use of your data for direct marketing purposes (including the ability to opt-out of receiving emails from us which you may do by unsubscribing using the links provided in our emails and at the point of providing your details and by managing your Account).
You may also wish to sign up to one or more of the preference services operating in the UK: The Telephone Preference Service (“the TPS”), the Corporate Telephone Preference Service (“the CTPS”), and the Mailing Preference Service (“the MPS”). These may help to prevent you receiving unsolicited marketing.
Note: These services will not prevent you from receiving marketing communications that you have consented to receiving.
13. Can I Withhold Information?
You may access certain areas of our website without providing any personal data at all. However, to use all features and functions available on our website you may be required to submit or allow for the collection of certain data.
14. How Can I Access My Personal Data?
If you wish to know what personal data we have on file about you, you can request for us to give you 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 within this policy.
There is not any charge for a subject access request. However, if your request is deemed ‘unfounded or excessive’ a fee may be charged to cover our administrative costs in responding.
We will respond to your subject access request within 30 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.
