We require all third parties to whom we transfer your data to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We only allow such third parties to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.

Please note: When accessing social media platforms such as (but not limited to) Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, YouTube and LinkedIn, via our website, you may pass on personal data.

7. SAFEGUARDING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

We have taken suitable measures to safeguard and secure data collected. We comply with, and safeguard, your rights under the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) at all times.

Other than the parties mentioned under the Disclosures Of Your Personal Data section above, we will not transfer your personal information to a third party unless legally obliged to do so, where we are complying with legal obligations, involved in legal proceedings, a court order or a governmental authority.

We will advise you at the first reasonable opportunity of any security breach in the unlikely event that your personal information is compromised.

8. HOW LONG DO WE RETAIN YOUR PERSONAL DATA?

We will only retain your personal data 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 data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

By law we have to keep basic information about our customers (including Contact, Identity, Financial and Transaction Data) for six years after they cease being customers for tax purposes.

9. YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS

We take individuals’ privacy very seriously. Demands from a third party company or legal authority requesting your personal data will only be honoured if the acting authority presents a relevant court order.

Under certain circumstances, you have rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal data. These include the right to:

  • Request access to your personal data.
  • Request correction of your personal data.
  • Request erasure of your personal data.
  • Object to processing of your personal data.
  • Request restriction of processing your personal data.
  • Request transfer of your personal data.
  • Withdraw consent.

You can see more about these rights at:

If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please contact our Data Protection Officer. We try to respond to all legitimate requests within a timely fashion.

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.

You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.

10. WITHHOLDING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

You can choose not to provide your personal information and you can access our website without providing any personal data:

· Our website contains Opt In options so you can decide whether you wish your personal information to be collected. You do not have to opt in when asked to sign up to a newsletter or for a specific offer on our website.

· You can choose to disable your Cookies.

· You can ask our Data Protection Officer to delete any personal information we hold about you.

However, please be aware that our ability to provide you with the service you require may be seriously restricted if you choose some or all of these options.

11. DATA STORED OUTSIDE THE EUROPEAN ECONOMIC AREA

Countries outside of the European Economic Area (EEA) do not always offer the same levels of protection to your personal data, so European law has prohibited transfers of personal data outside of the EEA unless the transfer meets certain criteria.

Some of our third party service providers may be based outside the European Economic Area (EEA) so their processing of your personal data will involve a transfer of data outside the EEA.

Whenever we transfer your personal data out of the EEA, we do our best to ensure a similar degree of security of data by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:

– We will only transfer your personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data by the European Commission; or

– Where we use certain service providers, we may use specific contracts or codes of conduct or certification mechanisms approved by the European Commission which give personal data the same protection it has in Europe; or

– Where we use providers based in the United States, we may transfer data to them if they are part of the EU-US Privacy Shield which requires them to provide similar protection to personal data shared between the Europe and the US.

If none of the above safeguards is available, we may request your explicit consent to the specific transfer. You will have the right to withdraw this consent at any time.
