We use appropriate security measures to protect the security of your personal information both online and offline. These measures vary based on the sensitivity of the personal information we collect, process and store and the current state of technology. We also take measures to ensure service providers that process personal data on our behalf also have appropriate security controls in place.

We will only keep your information for as long as is reasonably required for the purposes for which it was submitted or otherwise as determined by law or regulation. Once we no longer need your information it will be securely and confidentially destroyed.

Some recipients of your personal information, such as third party sub-processors, are located outside of the UK or have offices in countries where data protection laws may provide a different level of protection than the laws in the UK. When transferring personal data to such recipients, we provide appropriate safeguards.

We may use technologies that are considered automated decision making or profiling. We will not make any automated decisions about you that would significantly affect you unless such a decision is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract with you, we have obtained your consent, or we are required by applicable law to use such technology. You will find information on your right to object to this processing of your data below under Your rights as a data subject.

Your rights

Personal Information is just that – it’s personal, and it’s yours. So we want to make sure that it’s easy for you to take control of it and exercise your legal rights.

If you make a rights request, we’ll confirm that we have received your request and let you know if we need anything else from you. We must fulfil your request within one month unless the request is particularly complex or we receive multiple requests from you. In these cases we may extend the time period by up to two months, however we will only do this when we absolutely have to, and will always let you know.

This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it;

This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us;

This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data 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 data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request;

Object to processing of your personal data 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 as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms;

Request restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios:

  • if you want us to establish the data’s accuracy;
  • where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it;
  • where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or
  • you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it;

Request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.

Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent or on another lawful basis. If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please contact us.
