4 What Data Do We Collect About You?

Personal data, or personal information, means any information about an individual from which that person can be identified. It does not include data where the identity has been removed (anonymous data) or data relating to a corporate entity.

We may collect, use, store and transfer different kinds of personal data about you, or your business, which we have grouped together as follows:

  • Identity Data includes first name, last name and title.
  • Contact Data includes address, billing address, email address, telephone number(s) and fax number(s).
  • Financial Data includes bank account and payment card details.
  • Transaction Data includes details about payments to and from you.
  • Technical Data includes internet protocol (IP) address, your login data, browser type and version, time zone setting and location, browser plug-in types and versions, operating system and platform and other technology on the devices you use to access our websites.
  • Profile Data includes your purchase history.
  • Usage Data includes information about how you use our website.
  • Marketing and Communications Data includes your preferences in receiving marketing from us and our third parties and your communication preferences.

We may also collect, use and share Aggregated Data such as statistical or demographic data for any purpose. Aggregated Data may be derived from your personal data but is not considered personal data in law as this data does not directly or indirectly reveal your identity. For example, we may aggregate your Usage Data to calculate the percentage of users accessing a specific website feature. However, if we combine or connect Aggregated Data with your personal data so that it can directly or indirectly identify you, we treat the combined data as personal data which will be used in accordance with this privacy policy.

We do not generally collect Special Categories of Personal Data about you (this is personal data revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union memberships, genetic data, biometric data, data concerning health, sex life, sexual orientation and information about criminal convictions and offences). However, we may collect such information indirectly in the following circumstances:

  • when you provide details of your dietary requirements (which may reveal details of your personal health or religious beliefs) when purchasing our services in order for us to cater for you, and we have obtained your consent to process this personal data; and
  • when you provide details of your special access requirements (which may reveal details of your personal health) when purchasing our services in order for us to cater for you, and we have obtained your consent to process this personal data.  

The legal basis on which we process such data will usually be your explicit consent. However, in the circumstances, where we are unable to obtain such consent, the legal basis for such processing will be to protect your vital interests and/or to meet our specific legal obligations (for example, pursuant to equality and anti-discrimination legislation).  


5 If You Fail To Provide Personal Data

Where we need to collect personal data by law, or under the terms of a contract we have with you and you fail to provide that data when requested, we may not be able to perform the contract we have or are trying to enter into with you (for example, to provide you with our services). In this case, we may have to cancel the service you have with us but we will notify you if this is the case at the time.

This means the interest of our business in conducting and managing our business to enable us to give you the best service and the best and most secure experience.

We do not use your personal data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent or are otherwise required or permitted to by law). You can obtain further information about how we assess our legitimate interests against any potential impact on you in respect of specific activities by contacting us.

  1. Performance of Contract [LEVEL 2 DROP-DOWN HEADING]

This means processing your personal data where it is necessary for compliance with a legal or regulatory obligation that we are subject to.

  1. Consent [LEVEL 2 DROP-DOWN HEADING]

This means agreement which must be freely given, specific, informed and be an unambiguous indication of your wishes by which you, by a statement or by a clear positive action, signify agreement to the processing of personal data relating to you.

Promotional Offers from Us

If you provide your express, opt-in consent, we may use your Identity, Contact, Technical, Usage and/or Profile Data to form a view on what we think you may want or need, or what may be of interest to you. This is how we decide which products, services and offers may be relevant for you (we call this marketing).

You may receive marketing communications from us after you have requested information from us or purchased our services and, in each case, you have opted-in to receiving that marketing.

You can withdraw your consent at any time.

In some limited circumstances, we may contact you about similar products and/or services where you have purchased services from us and you have not opted-out of receiving this information.

8 Disclosures Of Your Personal Data

For the purposes set out in the table above ('How we use your personal data'), we may have to share your personal data with the following parties: 

External Third Parties [LEVEL 2 DROP-DOWN HEADING]

Such as:

  • Financial processors based in the EU who manage online payments and transactions.
  • Service providers acting as processors based in the UK who provide website design and IT and system administration services.
  • Professional advisers acting as processors or joint controllers including lawyers, bankers, auditors and insurers based in the UK (or other relevant jurisdictions) who provide consultancy, banking, legal, insurance and accounting services.
  • HM Revenue & Customs, regulators and other authorities acting as processors or joint controllers based in the UK (or other relevant jurisdictions) who require reporting of processing activities in certain circumstances.
  • Third parties to whom we may choose to sell, transfer, or merge parts of our business or our assets. Alternatively, we may seek to acquire other businesses or merge with them. If a change happens to our business, then the new owners may use your personal data in the same way as set out in this privacy policy.

Specific Third Parties [LEVEL 2 DROP-DOWN HEADING]

Such as:

  • Squarespace: Based in the US, who provide and host our website. 

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


9 International Transfers

Individuals or customers who access our website may be based outside the European Economic Area (EEA) so the processing of their personal data will involve the transfer and storage of data outside the EEA. Some of our suppliers are based outside the EEA.

Whenever we transfer personal data out of the EEA, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:

  • We will only transfer your personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data by the European Commission.
  • Where we use certain service providers, we may use specific contracts approved by the European Commission which give personal data the same protection it has in Europe.
  • Where we use providers based in the US, we may transfer data to them if they are part of the Privacy Shield which requires them to provide similar protection to personal data shared between Europe and the US. 

Please contact us if you want further information on the specific mechanism used by us when transferring your personal data out of the EEA.


10 Data Security

We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.


11 Data Retention

How long will you use my personal data for? 

We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.

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

We will generally retain our customers' data for a period of 6 (six) years after you cease to be a customer, to ensure that we are able to assist you should you have any questions or feedback in relation to our services or to protect, or defend our legal rights.

Where we have processed your personal data to provide you with marketing communications, we may contact you at least every twenty-four (24) months to ensure you are happy to continue receiving such communications. If you tell us that you no longer wish to receive such communications, your personal data will be removed from our marketing lists (but will be added to a "do not contact" list).

Where we have processed your data for any other reason (such as where you have contacted us with a question in connection with our services), subject to the periods discussed above, we will retain your data for twelve (12) months.

In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your data: click here for further information.

In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.


12 Your Legal Rights And Complaints

What are your rights? [LEVEL 2 DROP-DOWN HEADING]

Under certain circumstances, you have rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal data, including the right to:

  1. Request access [LEVEL 3 DROP-DOWN HEADING]

You may request access to your personal data (commonly known as a "data subject access request"). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.

  1. Request correction [LEVEL 3 DROP-DOWN HEADING]

You may request correction of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.

  1. Request erasure [LEVEL 3 DROP-DOWN HEADING]

You may request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.

  1. Object to processing [LEVEL 3 DROP-DOWN HEADING]

You may object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.

  1. Request restriction of processing [LEVEL 3 DROP-DOWN HEADING]

You may request restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios: (a) if you want us to establish the data's accuracy; (b) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (c) where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (d) you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.

  1. Request the transfer [LEVEL 3 DROP-DOWN HEADING]

You may request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.

  1. Withdraw consent at any time [LEVEL 3 DROP-DOWN HEADING]

You may withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.

[Level 2] If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please contact us directly. 

You have the right to make a complaint at any time to the ICO, the UK supervisory authority for data protection issues (www.ico.org.uk). We would, however, appreciate the chance to deal with your concerns before you approach the ICO so please contact us in the first instance.

No fee usually required [LEVEL 2 DROP-DOWN HEADING]

You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (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 may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.

What we may need from you [LEVEL 2 DROP-DOWN HEADING]

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.

Time limit to respond [LEVEL 2 DROP-DOWN HEADING]

We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
