Grounds for using personal data

We will only use your personal data where we have a legal ground to do so. We determine the legal grounds based on the purposes for which we have collected and used your personal data. In every case, the legal ground will be one of the following:

  • Consent: For example, where you have provided your consent to receive marketing emails from us. You can withdraw your consent at any time. In the case of marketing emails you can withdraw your consent by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of the email.
  • Our legitimate interests: Where it is necessary for us to understand our visitors, promote our services and operate our site efficiently. For example, we will rely on our legitimate interest when we analyse what content has been viewed on our site, so that we can understand how they are used. It is also in our legitimate interest to carry out marketing analysis to determine what products and services may be relevant to the interests of our users. You can opt out from having your personal data used for marketing analysis by removing your cookies from your browser or by submitting a Subject Access Request to us.
  • Performance of a contract with you (or in order to take steps prior to entering into a contract with you): For example, where you have purchased a product from us and we need to use your contact details and payment information in order to process your order and deliver your product.
  • Compliance with law: In some cases, we may have a legal obligation to use or keep your personal data.

 

Security of personal data

Transmission of data and information via the Website is not a secure or encrypted transmission method for sending your personal data, unless otherwise indicated on the Website. Accordingly, your attention is drawn to the fact that any information and personal data carried over the Internet is not secure. Information and personal data may be intercepted, lost, redirected, corrupted, changed and accessed by other people.

As an ISO/IEC 27001 certified organisation we set strict security standards once we have received your personal data

  • to prevent unauthorised access to your personal data;
  • to protect your personal data against unauthorised processing, accidental loss, damage or destruction;
  • to maintain accuracy.

Where possible we will use security software and physical, electronic, and managerial processes to ensure the security of your personal data.

 

Who we share your personal data with

We do not share your personal data and it is not passed to anyone outside our organisation unless required by law or expressly agreed by you. Cookie data pertaining to yourself maybe collected and shared with our third party advertiser Google Adwords to inform our marketing activities based on your behaviour on our site but this information is purely based on your geolocation, device and browsing history. 

 

How long we keep your personal data

We keep your personal data for only as long as we need to. How long we need you personal data depends on what we are using it for, as set out in this privacy policy. For example, we may need to use it to answer your queries about a product or service and as a result may keep personal data while you are still using our product or services. We may also need to keep your personal data for accounting purposes, for example, where you have bought a subscription. If we no longer need your data, we will delete it or make it anonymous by removing all details that identify you. If we have asked for your permission to process your personal data and we have no other lawful grounds to continue with that processing, and you withdraw your permission, we will delete your personal data. However, when you unsubscribe from marketing communications, we will keep your email address to ensure that we do not send you any marketing in future.

Evidence or proof of your identity (for example, a copy of your passport, driver's licence or current bills) will be required. It is both in our interest and yours to store and process accurate personal data. If the data we hold about you is inaccurate in any way, where appropriate, you may have your personal data corrected by us on request by having it:

  • completed;
  • amended;
  • and/or erased.

Automatic Collection of Data

All networks connected to the Internet communicate in “IP” (Internet Protocol), which is a technical standard that allows data to be transmitted between two devices. “TCP/IP” (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) is responsible for making sure messages get from one host to another and that the messages are understood. An IP address is a string of code which identifies your personal computer and tells the Internet that you are connected.

We do not link information automatically logged in this way by any means with personal data about specific individuals. We also use cookies to store information about you. Cookies are small files which are sent by our web server to your computer and stored locally. The web server that issued the cookie can then read the file when you visit our site in future and recognise the visitor. We use cookies to track visitors through the web site, this is used for analysing traffic and users journeys and is used to identify individuals. If you want to delete any cookies that are already on your computer, please refer to the instructions for your file manager (Windows Explorer, Nautilus etc.) to locate the file or directory that stores cookies.
