We understand that your privacy is important to you, and we take the protection of your privacy and confidentiality very seriously.
This is a notice to inform you of our policy governing all information that we may record about you.
It sets out the conditions under which we may process any information that we collect from you, or that you may provide to us.
It covers information that could identify you individually (“personal information”) and information that could not. In the context of the law and this notice, “process” means collect, store, transfer, use or otherwise act on information.
We undertake to preserve the confidentiality of all information you provide to us, where appropriate.
Our policy complies with UK data protection law, in particular UK GDPR.
The law requires us to tell you about your rights and our obligations to you in regards to the processing and control of your personal data. We request that you read the information provided at www.knowyourprivacyrights.org
Except as set out below, we do not share, or sell, or disclose to a third party, any information collected through our website.
The bases on which we process information about you
The law requires us to determine under which of six defined bases we process different categories of your personal information, and to notify you of the basis for each category.
If a basis on which we process your personal information is no longer relevant then we shall immediately stop processing your data.
If the basis changes, then, if required by law, we shall notify you of the change and of any new basis under which we have determined that we can continue to process your information.
1. Information we process because we have a contractual obligation with you
When you create an account on our website, buy a product or service from us, or otherwise agree to our terms and conditions, a contract is formed between you and us.
In order to carry out our obligations under that contract we must process the information you give us. Some of this information may be personal information.
We may use it in order to:
- verify your identity for security purposes
- sell products to you
- provide you with our services
- provide you with suggestions and advice on products, services and how to obtain the most from using our website
We process this information on the basis that there is a contract between us, and on the basis of our legitimate interests.
Additionally, we may aggregate this information in a general way and use it to provide class information, for example to monitor our performance with respect to a particular service we provide. If we use it for this purpose, you as an individual will not be personally identifiable.
Where we process your data only in connection with a contract between us, we shall continue to process this information until the contract us ends or is terminated by either party under the terms of the contract.
In other cases we may retain your data in accordance with our legitimate interests or for the purposes of compliance with laws.
2. Information we process with your consent
Through certain actions when otherwise there is no contractual relationship between us, such as when you browse our website or ask us to provide you more information about our business, including in relation to our products and services, we process your information based on our legitimate interests or, in certain circumstances, pursuant to your consent.
Where we process information based on consent granted by you, we will continue to process your information on this basis until you withdraw your consent or it can be reasonably assumed that your consent no longer exists.
You may withdraw your consent at any time by instructing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
3. Information we process for the purposes of legitimate interests
We may process information on the basis there is a legitimate interest, either to you or to us, of doing so.
For example, we may process your data on this basis for the purposes of:
- record-keeping for the proper and necessary administration of our business
- responding to unsolicited communication from you to which we believe you would expect a response
- protecting and asserting the legal rights of any party
- insuring against or obtaining professional advice that is required to manage our business risk
- protecting your interests where we believe we have a duty to do so
4. Information we process because we have a legal obligation
Sometimes, we must process your information in order to comply with a statutory obligation.
For example, we may be required to give information to legal authorities if they so request or if they have the proper authorisation such as a search warrant or court order.
This may include your personal information.
5. Information relating to your method of payment
Payment information is never taken by us or transferred to us either through our website or otherwise. Our employees and contractors never have access to it.
At the point of payment, you are transferred to a secure page on the website where your payment details are processed by our third-party payment provider. These pages may be branded to look like we are providing the service, but it is not controlled or accessible to us.
6. Sending a message to our support team
When you contact us, whether by telephone, through our website or by e-mail, we collect the data you have given to us in order to reply with the information you need.
We record your request and our reply in order to increase the efficiency of our business.
We keep personally identifiable information associated with your message, such as your name and email address so as to be able to track our communications with you to provide a high quality service.
When we receive a complaint, we record all the information you have given to us. We use that information to resolve your complaint.
8. Affiliate and business partner information
This is information given to us by you in your capacity as an affiliate of us or as a business partner.
We use this information in connection with our business relationship and in accordance with any agreement entered into between us.
