Nor do we collect any information about criminal convictions and offences.]

How we use your information

When you provide personal information to us, we may use it for any of the purposes described in this privacy statement or as stated at the point of collection (or as otherwise permitted by law), including:

  • to carry out our obligations arising from any contracts entered into between you and us and to provide you with the information, products and services that you request from us;

  • to improve our website to ensure that content is presented in the most effective manner for you and for your computer.

We will not use your personal information for automated decision making processes.

Legal basis for processing your information

We rely on one or more of the following processing conditions in order to process your personal information:

  • our legitimate interests in the effective delivery of information and services to you and in the effective and lawful operation of our businesses (provided these do not interfere with your rights);
  • to satisfy any legal and regulatory obligations to which we are subject;
  • to perform our obligations under any contracts that we have agreed with you, including our terms of use; or
  • where no other condition for processing is available, if you have agreed to us processing your personal information for the relevant purpose.

We may process your personal information on more than one of the grounds listed above, depending on the specific purpose for which we are using your information. Please contact us if you need details about the specific legal ground we are relying on to process your personal information.

Sharing of information

We may disclose your personal information to our employees, officers, insurers or professional advisers as reasonably necessary for the purposes set out in this privacy statement.

Your personal information may be transferred to third party service providers who process information on our behalf, including providers of information technology, identity management, website hosting and management, data analysis, data back-up, security and storage services. The third party providers may use their own third party subcontractors that have access to personal data.

We may disclose your personal information to law enforcement, regulatory, or other government agencies or to other third parties as required by, and in accordance with, applicable law or regulation.

We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal information and to treat it in accordance with the law. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal information for their own purposes and only permit them to process your personal information for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.

International transfers

Your personal data will not be transferred to countries or territories outside the UK and the European Economic Area.

Retention of personal information

We will retain your personal information only as it is required for the purposes for which it was collected, or as required to do so by law, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or reporting requirements. We may retain your personal information for a longer period in the event of a complaint or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation in respect to our relationship with you.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal information, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of the information, the purposes for which we process the information and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or other requirements.

[Details of retention periods for different aspects of your personal information are available in our retention policy which you can request by contacting us.]

Direct marketing

Where we are legally required to obtain your explicit consent to provide you with marketing materials, we will only issue you with such marketing materials if you have provided consent for us to do so.

[If you have elected to do so, you will receive automated emails when [website] content is updated.] If you opt into any newsletters, you will receive emails known as newsletters. If you select any preferences such as issues, topics, subjects or industries, you may receive email communications related to those self-selected topics.

Unsubscribing from marketing

If you want to unsubscribe from mailing lists or any marketing, you should look for and follow the instructions we have provided within the appropriate area(s) of the website or in the relevant communications to you.

If you do not wish to receive emails or marketing communications from us, you can contact us at any time to request that such communications cease. If you choose to unsubscribe from any or all mailings, we shall cease to issue the relevant marketing communications to you but may retain your personal information as described under the heading “Retention of personal information” above.

Rights in relation to your information

You may have certain rights in relation to the personal information we hold about you. In particular, you may have a right to:

  • request a copy of personal information we hold about you;
  • ask that we update the personal information we hold about you, or correct such personal information that you think is incorrect or incomplete;
  • ask that we delete personal information that we hold about you, or restrict the way in which we use such personal information;
  • object to our processing of your personal information;
  • request the transfer of your personal information to you or a third party; and/or
  • withdraw your consent to our processing of your personal information (to the extent such processing is based on consent and consent is the only permissible basis for processing).

If you would like to exercise these rights, please contact us using the details set out at the end of this privacy statement. You will not usually have to pay a fee to access your personal information (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we could refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.

Security of personal information

We have implemented generally accepted standards of technology and operational security in order to protect personal information from loss, misuse, alteration or destruction. Only authorised persons are provided access to personal information collected via the website; such individuals have agreed to maintain the confidentiality of this information.

Although we use appropriate security measures once we have received your personal data, the transmission of data over the Internet (including by e-mail) is never completely secure. We endeavour to protect personal data, but we cannot guarantee the security of data transmitted to or by us.
