(b) to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations;

(c) for the performance of a contract with you or to take steps at your request before entering into a contract; or

The table below explains what we use your personal data for and why:

When we might share your personal data with third parties

We do not, and will not, sell any of your personal data to any third party – including your name or email address. As an essential part of being able to provide our services to you, we do however share your data with the following categories of third parties:

We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes and only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.  If you would like any more information about the third parties which we work with to provide our services to you, please contact us on the contact details provided in this Privacy Notice.

How we ask for consent

How we keep your personal data secure

To protect your information, we have policies and procedures in place to make sure that only authorised personnel can access the information, that information is handled and stored in a secure and sensible manner, and all systems that can access the information have the necessary security measures in place.

All employees, contractors and sub-contractors receive the necessary training and resources to ensure they understand their responsibilities in relation to all of our policies and procedures.

In addition to these operational measures, we also use a range of technologies and security systems to reinforce the policies and procedures, including ensuring that:

(a) access to personal data is strictly restricted to those employees who need access to this information as part of their role;

(b) unauthorised external access to personal data is prevented through the use of a firewall; and

(c) your personal data is stored on secure servers.

To make sure that these measures are suitable, we run vulnerability tests regularly. Audits to identify areas of weakness and non-compliance are routinely scheduled.

How long do we keep your personal data

We shall only retain your information 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.
