Disclosure of your information

We will treat your information with complete respect and will not disclose it to any third party, other than to those necessary or appropriate in connection with any of the purposes for which we use personal information, including to subcontractors or service providers that help host or support the relevant sites or application services, or otherwise provide technical assistance to us.

If you subscribe to Our service, you normally will be required to provide your payment details (except where you are a sponsee or have been gifted an annual subscription). These details will be made available in part to both the payment gateway and merchant bank involved. We ourselves will not receive and/or store your credit card details.  We use Stripe (www.stripe.com) as Our payment provider. Stripe will process the payment data as an independent controller and in accordance with its own privacy policy, which can be found here: https://stripe.com/gb/privacy. Your personal data will only be used by Stripe for the purposes of processing your payment, and will be securely encrypted. Stripe is based in Dublin and the United States, so your transaction may involve your personal data being transferred outside of the EEA directly to them, if you are based in Europe. 

We may also disclose your information to third parties as follows:

  • In connection with the sale or transfer of all or part of Our business.
  • As required by law and or in the good faith belief that disclosure is necessary to protect Our rights and/or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, bankruptcy or similar legal process

Where we use third party service providers as outlined above, We choose parties which We believe offer a secure service and help Us enhance our services or practices, and follow any legal requirements that may apply.

Where Do We Store Your Personal Data
We will keep your personal data secure by taking appropriate technical and organisational measures against its unauthorised or unlawful processing and against its accidental loss, destruction or damage.

Our Website is hosted on secure servers located in the UK. The data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”). It may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA who process account details and who provide support services. Transfers will only be made to countries which are the subject of an adequacy decision of the EU Commission or recipients who have entered into binding contracts with us to comply with the terms of this Notice and Data Protection Law. By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing. For the purposes of this Notice, Data Protection Law means (i) the UK GDPR and Data Protection Act 2018, (ii), for customers in the EEA, the General Data Protection Act, and (iii) and any national implementing laws of the GDPR, as amended from time to time and any successor legislation to the UK GDPR, the GDPR or the Data Protection Act 2018.

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, including the running of an active firewall, two-factor authentication and malware scanning. 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 supervisory authority of a breach where We are legally required to do so.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although We will do Our best to protect your personal data, We cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our Website; any transmission is at your own risk. Once We have received your

information, We will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

How Long Do We Store Your Data For
We may keep records of any personal information obtained from you on or through Our Website, or otherwise, for as long as We believe is reasonably required for our ongoing legitimate business needs, or such longer period as may be required for legal, audit and compliance purposes. This does not affect your right to opt out from receiving marketing communications, as outlined in the section “Your Rights” below.

Our retention policy is set out below:

1. Account registration and maintenance, managing our relationship with you such as request feedback, review or survey and review responses – Once you have registered an account with the Website, your account details will be kept in our database, unless deleted by you or if you ask us to delete the details. We will also delete your account, approximately two years after the account was last active.

2. Marketing – We will retain your personal data that we process with your consent for marketing purposes until such time as your consent is withdrawn. For the avoidance of doubt, if you withdraw your consent, we will not conduct any marketing that is necessary for our legitimate interests, although may still contact you for other purposes relating to the services or your account. We may from time to time deactivate and/or delete an account that is inactive for a period of 12 (twelve) months by providing notification of inactivity by email.

3. Handling queries/complaints relating to your account – we will retain all data relating to your account, and associated queries for the applicable limitation period under applicable national laws relevant for claims for breach by us of any contract between you and us. Please contact us for further information on limitation period.

4. To keep records of transactions and processing activities – we will retain all financial data provided or generated in connection with your subscriptions for the legal retention period for tax, audit and associated reports/accounting.

5. To operate the Website, provide support, deliver web content to subscribers etc – we will maintain this data, including logs and web server records, for the duration of the Website and the applicable limitation period relevant for claims for breach of contract.

6. To use data analytics and map data flows to improve the Website, products/services, marketing, customer relationships and experiences –this data will be retained in accordance with our cookie policy (see above for more information).

At the end of each retention period we will delete your personal data (for example deleting your account or the data held in the applicable database). However, if such data is necessary to fulfil other purposes, we will keep your personal data but only to process it for such other purposes. Where we rely on the legal retention period, at the end of the legal retention period personal data stored in the databases and other electronic documents will be deleted.

Your Rights – EU and UK Residents
We acknowledge and respect your rights as an individual.

You have the right to ask Us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes. You may also choose not to receive publications or certain other communications from Us at any time by opting- out by phone, email or via direct marketing emails sent to you.

In addition to the right referred to above, you also have the following rights:

  • Correction right – the right to correct inaccurate or incomplete personal data held by Us.
  • Erasure right – you can request erasure of your personal data if it is no longer necessary for Us to retain it for the purpose for which it was collected, if you withdraw your consent, if you have objected to Our processing and We have no other justification for processing the data, if it was processed unlawfully or if We are under a legal obligation to erase the data. If one of these grounds exist and We have no other legitimate grounds for retaining or processing your data, We will erase it without delay.
  • Right to object – you can object to Our processing of your data. We will stop processing the data unless We can demonstrate a compelling legitimate ground.
  • Restriction right – this will apply if you contest the accuracy of the personal data We hold, until We can verify its accuracy; if the processing is unlawful; if you wish Us to preserve it for a legal claim or if you object to processing based on Our or a third party’s legitimate interests, until We decide which interests prevail. We will notify you before lifting a restriction.
  • You have the right to make a complaint at any time to your supervisory authority. In the UK this is the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), the UK regulator 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.
