legal basis for the processing
Our processing of personal data will satisfy at least one of the
following processing conditions:
a. Consent - you have given consent to the processing for one or
more specific purposes. You have the right to withdraw
consent at any time but this will not affect the lawfulness of
processing based on consent before its withdrawal;
b. Necessary for performance of a contract - The processing is
necessary for the performance of a contract with you or in order to
take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract.
Where this ground applies the provision of the information is a
contractual requirement and if you fail to provide it we will be
unable to provide the services that you have requested;
c. Legal obligation - The processing is necessary for
compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject;
d. Vital interests - The processing is necessary in order to
protect your or another person's vital interests, e.g. in medical

party, except where such interests are overridden by your interests
or fundamental rights and freedoms which require protection of

for internal administrative purposes, market research activities,
direct marketing purposes, preventing fraud, ensuring network and

HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION
We use this information to provide you with services we make
available on this site or otherwise or to facilitate your use of
the site and our services. We also use information to help us
analyse how people are using our site so that we can continue to
improve the user experience.
We collect information about you to provide your services,
manage your account and, if you agree, to email you about other
products and services we think may be of interest to you. We
use your information collected from the website to personalise your
repeat visits to our website. If you explicitly consent, we
shall pass on your personal information to our Group of companies
so that they may offer you their products and services or to third
parties. In providing our services, we may send your details
to, and also use information from credit reference agencies and
fraud prevention agencies.
We will only collect and use personal information in line with
our responsibilities under applicable data protection laws.
We may share your information with Group companies, advisers,
suppliers, customers and partners as is necessary to ensure that
you are provided with the services you have requested.
How long we keep YOUR INFORMATION
We will generally keep your personal data for a minimum of 6
years after which time it will be destroyed, if it is no longer
required for the lawful purpose(s) for which it was obtained. If
you consent to marketing any information we use for this purpose
will be kept by us until you notify us that you no longer wish to
receive this information.
What are your rights?
You have the right to request a copy of the information that we
hold about you via a subject access request. If you would
like a copy of some or all of your personal information, please
email or write to us at [ ], supplying an email address to
which the information should be sent. We may use reasonable
means to verify the identity of the person making the
request. If we hold a large quantity of data, we may ask you
to specify the information or processing activities to which the
request relates. We will provide an electronic copy of the
information free of charge but we may charge a reasonable,
administrative-cost fee if further copies are requested.
We will respond to subject access requests within a month.
We can extend this by a further two months if the request is
complex or if we have received a large number of requests. We
can refuse to respond to the request if it is manifestly unfounded
or excessive (or charge an administrative fee). We may refuse
a request where it is not made for the purpose of allowing you to
be aware of and verify the lawfulness of the processing we are
carrying out. We can withhold personal data if
disclosure would adversely affect the rights and freedoms of
others, e.g. involving the conduct of a business in, for example,
intellectual property rights, trade secrets and confidential
We want to make sure that your personal information is accurate
and up to date. If at any point you believe the information
we process on you is incorrect you have the right to have it erased
in the following circumstances ("right to be forgotten"): (a)
You must have objected to the processing and (other than in
relation to objections to direct marketing) there are no overriding
legitimate grounds to justify the processing; (b) the personal data
is no longer needed for the purpose for which it was collected or
processed; (c) you withdraw your consent and there are no other
grounds for the processing; (d) the personal data is unlawfully
processed; or (e) there is a legal obligation to erase the personal
data. We do not need to comply if the processing is necessary
for rights of freedom of expression or information or for
compliance with a legal obligation under law or in certain other
limited circumstances permitted by applicable law.
In certain circumstances you have the right to object to the
processing of your personal data. We will comply with the
request where our processing is for direct marketing purposes or
based on the processing conditions of public interest or legitimate
interests. We will not comply if the processing is for
legal claims or based on a compelling legitimate interest which
overrides your interests.
We may transfer data outside of the European Union. Where
rules or prohibitions apply to any such transfer we will comply
with any conditions necessary, including by use of consent, model
contracts, binding corporate rules, codes of conduct or
certification and minor transfers, or other means available from
time to time.
