3 What Is Personal Data?

1. Personal data is defined by the UK GDPR and the Data Protection Act 2018 (collectively, “the Data Protection Legislation”) as ‘any information relating to an identifiable person who can be directly or indirectly identified in particular by reference to an identifier.

2. Personal data is, in simpler terms, any information about you that enables you to be identified. Personal data covers obvious information such as your name and contact details, but it also covers less obvious information such as identification numbers, electronic location data, and other online identifiers.

4 What Are My Rights?

1. Under the Data Protection Legislation, you have the following rights, which we will always work to uphold:

i.      The right to be informed about our collection and use of your personal data. This Privacy Policy should tell you everything you need to know, but you can always contact us to find out more or to ask any questions using the details in Section 12.

ii.      The right to access the personal data we hold about you. Part 11 will tell you how to do this.

iii.     The right to have your personal data rectified if any of your personal data held by us is inaccurate or incomplete. Please contact us using the details in Section 12 to find out more.

iv.     The right to be forgotten, i.e. the right to ask us to delete or otherwise dispose of any of your personal data that we hold. Please contact us using the details in Section 12 to find out more.

v.       The right to restrict (i.e. prevent) the processing of your personal data.

vi.      The right to object to us using your personal data for a particular purpose or purposes.

vii.      The right to withdraw consent; this means that if we are relying on your consent as the legal basis for using your personal data, you are free to withdraw that consent at any time.

viii.     The right to data portability; means that if you have provided personal data to us directly, we are using it with your consent or for the performance of a contract and that data is processed using automated means. You can ask us for a copy of that personal data to re-use with another service or business in many cases.

ix.      Rights relating to automated decision-making and profiling. We do not use your personal data in this way.

2. For more information about our use of your personal data or exercising your rights as outlined above, please contact us using the details provided in Section 12.

3. It is important that your personal data is kept accurate and up-to-date. If any of the personal data we hold about you changes, please keep us informed as long as we have that data.

4. Further information about your rights can also be obtained from the Information Commissioner’s Office or your local Citizens Advice Bureau.

5. If you have any cause for complaint about our use of your personal data, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioner’s Office. We would welcome the opportunity to resolve your concerns ourselves, however, so please contact us first, using the details in Section 12.

5 What Data Do You Collect and How?

i. Identity Information including name and title.

2. We do not use your information for marketing purposes

3. We will only use your personal data for the purpose(s) for which it was originally collected unless we reasonably believe that another purpose is compatible with that or those original purpose(s) and need to use your personal data for that purpose. If we do use your personal data in this way and you wish us to explain how the new purpose is compatible with the original, please contact us using the details in Section 12.

4. If we need to use your personal data for a purpose that is unrelated to or incompatible with the purpose(s) for which it was originally collected, we will inform you and explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.

5. In some circumstances, where permitted or required by law, we may process your personal data without your knowledge or consent; this will only be done within the bounds of the Data Protection Legislation and your legal rights.

7 How Long Will You Keep My Personal Data?

We usually keep emails sent to us indefinitely

8 How and Where Do You Store or Transfer My Personal Data?

We will only store your personal data in the UK; this means that it will be fully protected under the Data Protection Legislation.

9 Do You Share My Personal Data?

1. We will not share any of your personal data with any third parties for any purposes, subject to the following exceptions.

2. If we sell, transfer, or merge parts of our business or assets, your personal data may be transferred to a third party. Any new owner of our business may continue to use your personal data in the same way(s) that we have used it, as specified in this Privacy Policy.

3. 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.

4. We may share your information with a third party with your specific, explicit consent in writing. The reason why we wish to share your information will be explained when we request your consent.  

10 Can I Withhold Information?

You are free to decide what information you share with us.

11 How Can I Access My Personal Data?

1. If you want to know what personal data we have about you, you can ask us for details of that personal data and a copy of it (where any such personal data is held); this is known as a “subject access request”.

2. All subject access requests should be made in writing and sent to the email or postal addresses shown in Section 12.

3. There is not normally any charge for a subject access request. If your request is ‘manifestly unfounded or excessive’ (for example, if you make repetitive requests), a fee may be charged to cover our administrative costs in responding.

4. We will respond to your subject access request within 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. You will be kept fully informed of our progress.
