How is this information used?

Your data may be used for us to respond to your needs, for sales and other inquiries and for promoting our business services or products. Specifically, the reasons for processing your data may be:

  • To respond to any correspondence you send to us and fulfill the requests you make to us
  • To undertake market analysis and research to better serve you as a client and provide tailored offers, products and services that we think you will be interested in. We will only send marketing communications to you if there is a legitimate business interest
  • To send you marketing information after you have purchased a product or service from us or made a purchasing inquiry. We’ll only contact you with information about our own products and services. You have the right to object to us sending you this information at any time
  • To get in touch from time to time with marketing information (unless you object) if you have indicated to us that you are acting on behalf of a business or where we have obtained your business contact details from an online or public business directory. You will have the option to unsubscribe at any time
  • To identify and record when you have received, opened or engaged with our website or electronic communications (please see our Cookie Policy for more information)
  • To verify the accuracy of the information that we hold about you
  • To comply with a request from you in connection with the exercise of your rights. For example, where you have asked us to refrain from contacting you for marketing purposes, we will keep a record of this on our suppression lists in order to comply with your request
  • To inform you of updates to our terms and conditions and policies.

The lawful basis that we identified for the above purposes is that of legitimate interest. This is in the form of us continuing to provide a service or product to you or establishing a business relationship to direct market to you.

We will not hold your personal information in an identifiable format for any longer than is necessary. If you are a client or otherwise have a relationship with us we will hold personal information about you for a longer period than if we have obtained your details in connection with a prospective relationship.

We do not retain personal information in an identifiable format for longer than is necessary.

Where we have obtained your personal information following a request for information on any of our products or services, we hold your personal information for 1 year and 6 months from the date we collect that information, unless during that period we identify a legitimate business interest to continue processing your data. We hold your personal information for this period to give us an opportunity to form a relationship with you.

The only exceptions to the periods mentioned above are where:

  • The law requires us to hold your personal information for a longer period, or delete it sooner;
  • Where you have raised a legal claim, complaint or concern regarding a product or service offered by us, in which case we will retain your information for a period of 6 years following the date of that complaint or query; or
  • You exercise your right to have the information erased (where it applies) and we do not need to hold it in connection with any of the reasons permitted or required under the law (see further How can I manage the information we hold about you).
