We collect, use and are responsible for certain personal information. When we do so we are regulated under the General Data Protection Regulation which applies in the United Kingdom and we are responsible as ‘controller’ of that personal information for the purposes of those laws. We are committed to ensuring that information is secure, accurate and relevant. To prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures exist to safeguard personal data.
The laws referred to in this Policy are the Data Protection Act 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (EU Regulation 2016 – 679) (GDPR) and relevant UK legislation in relation to data protection (all referred to as “Applicable Laws”).
Information about data protection is available at the Information Commissioner’s website: https://ico.org.uk/
We aim to:
- Promote best practice in data protection.
- Protect personal data of customers, suppliers and other business partner representatives and make disclosure responsibilities clear.
- Apply legal safeguards in relation to data protection.
- Apply equal opportunity policies in relation to data issues.
Types of Personal Information Collected
We may collect the following personal information from you:
- Identification data – such as name, photograph and job title
- Contact details – such as business address, telephone number and email addresses.
Purposes for Processing Personal Information
Under data protection law, we can only use your personal data if we have a proper reason for doing so, e.g.
- to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations;
- for the performance of our contract with you or to take steps at your request before entering into a contract;
- for our legitimate interests or those of a third party; or
- you have given consent.
We will only process your personal information if we are satisfied that our reasoning for processing your data falls within one of the above categories.
Our main justification for processing your personal information is that it is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party or in order to take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract. Once our contract has been concluded, we will need to keep certain personal information in order to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations.
