The legal basis for using your personal information

We will only collect, use, and share your personal information where we are satisfied that we have an appropriate legal basis to do this. This may be because:

  • our use of your personal information is in our legitimate interest as a commercial organisation (for example, where we undertake market research or retain information as a reference tool or general resource) - in these cases we will look after your information at all times in a way that is proportionate and respects your privacy rights and you have a right to object to the processing as explained in the “Your rights in relation to your information” section below;
  • you have provided your consent to us using your personal information (for example, in relation to any electronic direct marketing communications we send to you);
  • our use of your personal information is necessary to perform a contract or take steps to enter into a contract with you (for example, to facilitate your entry into the competitions that you enter); and/or
  • our use of your personal information is necessary to comply with a relevant legal or regulatory obligation that we have (for example, where we are required to make filings with HMRC or other government agencies or to comply with requests or law enforcement or other regulatory bodies).

Information security and retention

The Internet is not a secure medium. However, we have put in place various security procedures as set out in this Privacy Policy. Please be aware that communications over the Internet, such as emails/webmail are not secure unless they have been encrypted. We cannot accept responsibility for any unauthorised access or loss of personal information that is beyond our control. We adopt appropriate policies, rules, and technical measures to protect the personal data that we have under our control (having regard to the type and amount of that data) from unauthorised access, improper use or disclosure, unauthorised modification, unlawful destruction, or accidental loss. All of our employees and data processors who have access to, and are associated with, the processing of your personal information are obliged to respect the confidentiality of our visitors’ information. We ensure that your information will not be disclosed to government institutions or authorities except if required by law or when requested by regulatory bodies or law enforcement organisations.

We will store your personal information for as long as is reasonably necessary for the purposes for which it was collected, as explained in this Privacy Policy. In some circumstances, we may store your personal information for longer periods of time, for instance where we are required to do so in accordance with legal, regulatory, tax, and accounting requirements.

In specific circumstances, we may store your personal information for longer periods of time so that we have an accurate record of your dealings with us in the event of any complaints or challenges, or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation relating to your personal information or dealings.

To whom will your information be disclosed?

Your information may, for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy, be disclosed for processing to:

  • our employees;
  • our group companies and their employees;
  • successors in title to our business and any potential or actual third-party purchaser of our business or assets;
  • third-party consultants, contractors or other service providers who may access your personal information when providing services (including but not limited to IT support services) to us;
  • government bodies and law enforcement agencies and in response to other legal and regulatory requests;
  • auditors or contractors or other advisers auditing, assisting with or advising on any of our business purposes, in any jurisdiction where we operate.

Your rights in relation to your information

Subject to certain exemptions, and in some cases dependent upon the processing activity we are undertaking, you have certain rights in relation to your personal information. We may ask you for additional information to confirm your identity and for security purposes, before disclosing the personal information requested to you. We reserve the right to charge a fee where permitted by law, for instance, if your request is manifestly unfounded or excessive. You can exercise your rights by contacting us using the contact details set out at the end of this Privacy Policy. Please quote your name and address. We may not always be able to fully address your request, for example, if it would impact the duty of confidentiality we owe to others, or if we are legally entitled to deal with the request in a different way.

You can write to us at any time to obtain a copy of your information and to have any inaccuracies corrected. Where appropriate, you may have your personal information erased, rectified, or amended. We would be grateful if you would also provide brief details of the information of which you would like a copy or which you would like to be corrected (this helps us to locate more readily your data).

You can ask us to restrict our use of your personal information, but only where (i) its accuracy is contested, to allow us to verify its accuracy, or (ii) the processing is unlawful, but you do not want it erased; (iii) it is no longer needed for the purposes for which it was collected, but we still need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (iv) you have exercised the right to object (see below), and verification of overriding grounds is pending.

You can object to any processing of your personal information which has our legitimate interests as its legal basis, if you believe your fundamental rights and freedoms outweigh our legitimate interests.

If you raise an objection, we have an opportunity to demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate interests that override your rights and freedoms.

You can request that we change the way we contact you for marketing purposes.

You also have the right to lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioner's Office, which can be contacted on 0303 123 1113 or via other methods of communication as explained on their website (currently

Transferring information globally

Owing to the global nature of the Internet infrastructure, the information you provide may be transferred in transit to countries outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”). Countries outside of the EEA may not have similar protections in place regarding your data and its use as set out in this policy. However, we have taken the steps outlined in the “Information security and retention” section above to try and protect the security of your information. Where we transfer your personal information to third parties who help provide our services, we obtain contractual commitments from them to protect your personal information. Some of these assurances are well-recognised certification schemes like the EU - US Privacy Shield for the protection of personal information transferred from within the EU to the United States. You have a right to contact us (using the details at the end of this Privacy Policy) for more information about the safeguards we have put in place to ensure the adequate protection of your personal information when this is transferred as mentioned above.

We are not responsible for the privacy policies and practices of other websites even if you accessed the third-party website using links from our Website. We recommend that you check the policy of each website you visit and contact the owner or operator of such a website if you have concerns or questions.
