 What legal basis do we rely on to process your information ?

Data protection law sets out a number of conditions which organisations can rely on in order to lawfully handle personal information. The conditions we rely on are as follows: –

Legitimate interests

The law permits us to handle your personal information where necessary in our legitimate interests provided that this isn’t outweighed by your interests. Many of the purposes we handle your Personal Information, described above, fall into this category as they are essential activities which enable us to run our business efficiently and effectively for example, enabling us to use third party service providers and to monitor, review and improve the services we provide to you and your experience when you visit our Website. We may, if necessary, also use your information to defend our legal rights or to obtain legal advice and to manage any complaint that you might have. We ensure that your rights and interests are protected when we do this.

Consent

We are permitted to use your Personal Information when you give us your consent for us to do so. We will only use your Personal Information to contact you for direct marketing purposes e.g. to let you know about news and events if you give us your consent to do so.

Performance of a contract

Where you ask us to provide services to you we will use your Personal Information so that we can provide the services. If you ask us to keep you informed about positions that you may be eligible for, this will form part of the services we agree to provide you with and we will use your Personal Information to do so.

Required by law

We will, if required by law, disclose your personal information for example in response to a court order. We will disclose your Personal Information if requested by a law enforcement agency or where we believe it is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, non-compliance with of our terms and conditions, or as otherwise permitted or required by law and consistent with legal requirements.

 

WHO WE SHARE YOUR INFORMATION WITH

We will not pass your Personal Information to anyone, except to:-

  • carefully selected service providers (e.g. professional advisers, finance providers and IT service providers etc), who provide services to us. Such third parties are only permitted to use your Personal Information to the extent necessary to provide the services to us;
  • Prospective employers who we think have vacancies which you may be eligible for. Please note that any prospective employer will be a data controller in their own right and as such, will be responsible for ensuring that they only use your personal information in accordance with data protection laws.;
  • In the event that we sell or buy any business or assets, in which case we may disclose your personal data to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets or where we are required to forward the information in order to comply with a regulatory or legal process; Where required by law, we will share your personal information with the police and other law enforcement agencies.

We will always limit the Personal Information we share to that which is necessary to enable them to perform their services or fulfil the intended purpose. We will also always ensure that before we share your Personal Information with a service provider, we have entered into a contract with the service provider which requires them to keep your information secure and only use it for the purposes we permit them to. We will never sell or share your Personal Information with third parties for the purposes of marketing without seeking prior consent.

 

HOW LONG WE WILL KEEP YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION FOR

We will keep your Personal Information for as long as we need it to provide the services you request from us. We may also keep it to comply with our legal obligations, to resolve complaints and to enforce our rights.  As a result, the length of time that we keep your Personal Information for will vary depending on the purposes for which we have it. In any event, we will review what information we need on an ongoing basis and will only retain it for the minimum amount of time that we need it for.

Where in the world will we hold your information?

Your data may occasionally be processed and held by third parties outside the European Economic Area (EEA).

Whereas in the EU, we implement a high standard of data protection law, some parts of the world do not implement such stringent laws. As a result, if we do send Personal Information overseas we will make sure that appropriate safeguards are in place to ensure it is protected in accordance with European data protection law. These might include: –

  • Sending personal information only to countries that European Authorities have indicated have adequate data protection laws in place e.g. Canada or Switzerland;
  • Putting in place contracts with the recipient containing terms which the European Authorities have approved as providing adequate protection; organisations which are members of a scheme which has been approved by European Authorities as achieving adequate protection e.g. Privacy Shield.
