Please read this policy carefully to understand how we process your data.
Important, Please Read
In order to provide our service to you we are required to obtain certain pieces of Personal Data such as your name and your email address. Without this information we cannot provide this service to you and therefore you must freely consent to providing this data in accordance with the policy set out below.
You may at any time unsubscribe from receiving emails from us.
What information do we collect?
We may collect, store and use the following kinds of personal information:
[(a) information about your computer and about your visits to and use of this website (including [your IP address, geographical location, browser type and version, operating system, referral source, length of visit, page views, website navigation and [details]]);
[(b) information relating to any transactions carried out between you and us on or in relation to this website, including information relating to any purchases you make of our goods or services
[(c) information that you provide to us for the purpose of registering with us
[(d) information that you provide to us for the purpose of subscribing to our website services, email notifications and/or newsletters (including [details]) and your responses to surveys or questionnaires we ask you to complete
[(e) any other information that you choose to send to us; and
[(f) other information.
If you fail to provide personal data
Where we need to collect personal data by law, or under the terms of a contract we have with you and you fail to provide that data when requested, we may not be able to perform the contract we have or are trying to enter into with you (for example, to provide you with goods or services).
In this case, we may have to cancel a product or service you have with us but we will notify you if this is the case at the time.
We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
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, regulatory, 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 and regulatory requirements.
This section explains the rights you have under data protection laws with respect to how your personal data is held and used by us. If you wish to request to exercise any of these rights, you can contact us using the details set out at the end of this privacy notice.
You have the right to withdraw your consent to us processing your personal data at any time. This will not affect the lawfulness of any processing of your personal data that we carried out before your withdrawal. If you choose to withdraw your consent to us processing your personal data, we may not be able to perform your contract with us for the relevant service or provide other products or services to you.
You have the right to access the personal data we hold about you, free of charge.
You have the right to ask us (and third parties to whom we transfer your personal data) to rectify your personal data if it becomes inaccurate. In order for us to do so, you must inform us of any changes to your personal data so that we can keep it up to date.
You have the right to ask us to erase your personal data where there is no compelling reason for us to keep using it. This is not a general right to erasure; there are exceptions. We may not be able to perform your contract with us for the relevant service or provide other products or services to you if you ask us to erase your personal data.
You have the right to restrict our further processing of your personal data. Where processing is restricted, we can still store your personal data, but we may not use it further.
You have the right to request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.

Where we store your data
Data we collect from you may be transferred to and stored in destinations outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”) and may be processed by staff operating outside the EEA.
Whenever we transfer your personal data out of the EEA, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it 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.
Where we use certain service providers, we may use specific contracts approved by the European Commission which give personal data the same protection it has in Europe.
Where we use providers based in the US, we may transfer data to them if they are part of the Privacy Shield which requires them to provide similar protection to personal data shared between the Europe and the US.
