We share your personal data with trusted third parties to allow us to provide our products and services to you.  When we do share your data with these third parties we have written contracts in place with them which require them to only use your data for the purpose we specify to them and that your privacy is secure and respected.

Depending on your settings and the privacy policies/terms of social media or messaging services, such as LinkedIn, Twitter or YouTube, we may collect information about you from these sources, with your permission.

We may combine the information you have given us, with information obtained from other sources, but we will only do this when we have a lawful basis to do so.


Our service providers may be located (or may access your personal data from) outside the UK/EEA (European Economic Area) in countries that may not have data protection laws that provide the same degree of protection for personal data as within the UK/EEA. Where we transfer personal data outside of the UK/EEA, unless the recipient country has been deemed to provide adequate protection for personal data by the UK Government, we will ensure that there is a valid data transfer mechanism in place to protect the data, such as the International Data Transfer Agreement approved by the Information Commissioner’s Office.

Please contact us using the details provided at the end of this Privacy Policy if you would like further details or for a copy of any data transfer mechanism.


We will only keep your personal data for as long as we need to for the reason we collected it, as set out in this Privacy Policy. For example, for as long as needed to allow us to provide our products or services or to provide any support you have requested.

We may also keep hold of some of your personal data if we are required to do so for legal purposes, for example, to meet our legal or regulatory requirements or to prevent fraud and abuse.

For further information, please contact us using the details provided at the end of this Privacy Policy.


We are committed to ensuring that your personal data is secure, and we have put in place suitable administrative, technical, physical, contractual and managerial measures to protect it, including:

  • Strong passwords that are changed every 30 days
  • A firewall in place which provides high level security controls
  • We have Antivirus protection installed on all servers and computers
  • We run regular software updates to ensure that we are properly patched and up to date; and
  • We backup all data daily to the cloud.

Our employees who have access to and process your personal data are obliged to respect the confidentiality and security of your personal data.

These measures are intended to protect your personal data from loss, theft, unauthorised use, disclosure or access. Despite this, please remember that transfers of information over the internet can never be 100% secure.

In addition, we have appropriate measures in place to make sure that the personal data we retain is accurate and up-to-date.


Our website may contain links to other websites of interest. However, we do not have any control over third party websites and they will be governed by their own privacy policies, not this Privacy Policy. We encourage you to read the privacy notice of every website you visit to understand how your personal information may be used.


You can unsubscribe from our marketing communications by using the unsubscribe links provided in marketing emails or by contacting us at any time using the details provided at the end of this Privacy Policy.


You have the following rights in relation to the personal information we hold about you, to request:

  • access to the personal data we hold about you (commonly known as a “data subject access request”) including a copy of it;
  • the correction of the personal information that we hold about you if it is incomplete or inaccurate;
  • the deletion or removal of personal data we hold about you, for example, where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it or where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below);
  • for our processing of your personal information to be restricted in certain circumstances, for example if you want to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it;
  • to obtain a copy of the personal information you’ve provided us with and to reuse it elsewhere or to ask us to transfer it to a third party of your choice; and
  • to withdraw any consent you have provided to our use of your personal data. Where you withdraw consent we will stop using your data for the specific purpose, unless we have an alternative legal basis to use it.

The exercise of these rights may in some cases be subject to certain conditions. We may ask you for proof of your identity before dealing with your request, as a security measure to protect your data.

Right to Object

Where we are processing your personal data on the basis of our legitimate interests, you can ask us to stop processing it and we must do so unless we believe we have an overriding legitimate reason to continue processing your personal data or we need to process it for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.


If you are dissatisfied with how we have handled your personal data, you have the right to make a complaint to your data protection regulator and we will work with them to resolve it. In the UK, this is the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO). You can make a complaint to the ICO by calling their helpline on 0303 123 1113 or on their website at We would, however, appreciate the chance to deal with your concerns before you approach the ICO (or, if you’re based outside of the UK, your data protection regulator), so please do contact us in the first instance.


If you have any queries regarding this Privacy Policy, you have a complaint or you would like to exercise any of your rights set out above, you can contact us in the following ways:

  • by email to our Data Protection Officer, Stuart Hellyar, at;
