If we or substantially all of our assets are acquired by a third party, personal data held by it about its customers will be one of the transferred assets

Before we share your personal data with a third party, we will ensure that there is an appropriate Data Processing or Data Sharing Agreement in place to protect the sharing of data.

We’ll never make your personal data available to anyone externally for them to use for their own marketing purposes without your prior consent. 


Your data is stored on our management systems. In some circumstances, it is possible that our management systems may store your data outside of the United Kingdom. 

Where this occurs, we will endeavour to ensure that the territory in which the data will be stored has been determined by the UK Government to offer an adequate level of data protection within its domestic legislative regime, or that appropriate contracts are in place to ensure that the data is stored in a manner which is compliant with the UK GDPR.

Where we share your data outside of the UK and EEA to a country that hasn’t been deemed adequate, we will ensure an appropriate safeguard is used in line with UK GDPR. The below table describes the circumstances and safeguard used when your data is transferred outside of the EEA.

We will keep your personal data for as long as necessary to allow us to carry out our business functions. This includes satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. When we assess how long to retain your personal data, we will consider the following: 

  • Any statutory or legal obligations;
  • The purposes for which we originally collected the personal data;
  • The lawful grounds on which we based our processing;
  • The types of personal data we have collected;
  • The amount and categories of your personal data; and
  • Whether the purpose of the processing could reasonably be fulfilled by other means.

We will regularly review the retention of your personal data held within our care in line with our requirements to ensure that we are not keeping your personal data for longer than is necessary. 


We have put in place measures to protect the security of your information. Details of these measures are available upon request.

Third parties will only process your personal information on our instructions and where they have agreed to treat the information confidentially and to keep it secure

We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal information from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal information to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal information on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected data security breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected breach where we are legally required to do so.

The transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. We cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted online and transmission is made at your own risk. If you communicate with us by email then you assume the risks of such communications being intercepted, not received or delivered or are received by individuals other than the intended recipient.


Everyone in the scope of the UK GDPR has rights relating to the collection and use of their personal data. The rights that apply to your personal data are listed below: 

  • Right to be Informed: We will always be transparent in the way we use your personal data. You will be informed about the processing through relevant privacy policies.
  • Right to Access: You have a right to request access to the personal data that we hold about you. 
  • Right to Rectification: We want to make sure that the personal data we hold about you is accurate and up to date. If any of your details are incorrect, please let us know and we will amend them.
  • Right to Erasure: You have the right to have your data ‘erased’ in the following situations:
    • Where the personal data is no longer necessary in relation to the purpose for which it was originally collected or processed;
    • When you withdraw consent;
    • When you object to the processing and there is no overriding legitimate interest for continuing the processing;
    • When the personal data was unlawfully processed; or
    • When the personal data has to be erased in order to comply with a legal obligation.

Please note that each request will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis and where we have a lawful reason to retain the data or where exceptions exist within our retention policy, then it may not be erased. 

  • Right to Restrict Processing: You have the right to restrict processing in the following situations:
    • Where you contest the accuracy of your personal data, we will restrict the processing until you have verified the accuracy of your personal data;
    • When processing is unlawful, and you oppose erasure and request restriction instead; or
    • Where we no longer need the personal data, but you require the information to establish, exercise or defend a legal claim. 
  • Right to Data Portability: In certain situations, you have the right to obtain and reuse your personal data for your own purposes via a machine-readable format, such as a .CSV file.
  • Right to Object: You have the right to object to the processing of your personal data in the following circumstances:
    • You no longer want to receive direct marketing; or 
    • Where processing is based on our legitimate interests. 

We will respond to any request within one calendar month of the request being received. If you want to exercise any of your rights listed above, please contact us by email or in writing. 

Please note that where you ask us to erase, correct, object to process or seek to restrict our processing of data we may refuse your request where we have a legal obligation, contractual or other legitimate business interest to refuse your request. If we refuse your request, then we will notify you of this refusal and you will have the right to appeal.

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


Automated decision-making takes place when an electronic system uses personal information to make a decision without human intervention. We are allowed to use automated decision-making in the following circumstances:

  • Where we have notified you of the decision and given you 21 days to request a reconsideration.
  • Where it is necessary to perform the contract with you and appropriate measures are in place to safeguard your rights.
  • In limited circumstances, with your explicit written consent and where appropriate measures are in place to safeguard your rights.

If we make an automated decision on the basis of any particularly sensitive personal information, we must have either your explicit written consent or it must be justified in the public interest, and we must also put in place appropriate measures to safeguard your rights.

You will not be subject to decisions that will have a significant impact on you based solely on automated decision-making, unless we have a lawful basis for doing so and we have notified you.


We will continually review and update this privacy notice to reflect changes in our services and feedback from service users, as well as to comply with the changes in the law. Any changes we may make to our privacy policy in the future will be posted on this page. Please check back frequently to see any updates or changes to our privacy policy.
