Visitors to our websites
When you visit our website, tracking technologies such as ‘cookies’ may automatically record information about your visit. We only use these cookies to help us improve our website and do not make any attempt to identify anyone. Please see our Cookies Policy for more information.
People who contact us
When you contact us, we will use your contact details, such as name and/or email address to be able to respond and engage with you.
People whose services we use or who we provide services to
Where we engage individuals or organisations to carry out services for us, or where we provide services to our clients, we may be required to process personal information of the service provider or client personnel in order to facilitate the provision of the service. We may also collect and retain information to enable us to evaluate that service.
Any such processing will be governed by contractual terms between us and the service provider or client, but the general provisions as to data security and retention periods etc. are as set out in this Privacy Notice.
When a person contacts us in relation to a complaint, we generally need to capture the details of the person making contact and the nature of the contact or complaint. Complaints normally contain the identity of the complainant and any other individuals involved in the complaint.
We will only use your personal information to:
• allow us to action your request
• allow us to properly investigate any complaint
• contact you in relation to any further information we require from you to action your initial
request or complaint
• communicate with you, which may include responding to emails or calls from you • review our training and processes in order to make improvements
When we advertise job vacancies, we collect personal information from any communication and CV provided to us directly or through a recruitment company and use it to assess an applicant's suitability for the job.
How we collect your personal information
The table below explains how we collect the personal information we are the controller of:
How and why we use your personal information
Under the data protection laws, we must always have a lawful basis for using personal information. When we process your personal information, we consider your rights under data protection laws as well as any potential impact to you. We will never place our interests above yours.
The table below describes how we may use your personal information, and our lawful bases for doing so.
Where and how do we keep your personal information?
We take appropriate measures to ensure that all personal information is kept secure, including security measures to prevent personal information from being accidentally lost, or used or accessed in an unauthorised way. We require our staff and all third parties to maintain high standards of safety and protection of personal information, including contractual obligations under which they undertake the protections of all personal information.
We also have procedures in place to deal with any suspected personal information security breach. We will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected personal information security breach, where we are legally required to do so.
To deliver services or manage our relationship with you, it is sometimes necessary for us to share your personal information outside the UK where we are based, such as when our service providers are located outside the UK. Personal information may also be held by other third parties as described below (see ‘Do we share your personal information?’).
How long is personal information kept for?
We retain personal information for as long as is reasonably necessary for the purposes for which it was provided or collected, and to meet legal, regulatory or financial accounting requirements. This means we will retain some personal information after a contractual relationship has come to an end. Where this is the case, we will always look to minimise the personal information retained.
The retention period for personal information can vary depending on its nature, any potential risk of harm caused by unauthorised use or disclosure, and if we have any legal, regulatory, financial or other requirements.
Do we share your personal information?
We may share your personal information with third parties for the following reasons:
The use of service providers to help us operate our business effectively
The use of service providers who provide systems and communications services to us
We may share your personal information where we are required to do so by law or at the
request of law enforcement
Where there is a need to transfer data to a supplier based outside of the UK, we will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your personal information is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Notice, and only to a country which the UK’s supervisory authority (Information Commissioner’s Office) has determined provides an adequate level of protection, or where the recipient is bound by standard contractual clauses according to conditions provided by the Information Commissioner’s Office.
We only allow our service providers to handle your personal information if we are satisfied they take appropriate measures to protect your personal information. We also impose contractual obligations on service providers to ensure your confidentiality is maintained.
We do not sell your personal information to any third party.
