If You wish to get an explanation as to how the processing for the new purpose is compatible with the original purpose, please contact Us.

If We need to use Your personal data for an unrelated purpose, We will notify You and We will explain the legal basis which allows Us to do so.

Please note that We may process Your personal data without Your knowledge or consent, in compliance with the above rules, where this is required or permitted by law.

Disclosures of Your Personal Data

We may share Your personal data with the parties set out below for the purposes set out in the table above.

  • Specific Third Parties:
    • Stripe: We use a third-party payment processor Stripe to process some payments made by You on Our website. We do not store credit card details and instead rely on Stripe for this. We obtain limited information from Stripe such as the last four digits, the country of issuance and the expiration date. The processing of such data by Stripe is covered by their privacy policy which may be viewed here: www.stripe.com/privacy. Stripe’s services in Europe are provided by a Stripe affiliate, Stripe Payments Europe Limited, an entity located in Ireland. In providing its payment processing services, Stripe Payments Europe Limited transfers personal data to Stripe, Inc. in the US. For further information about the safeguards used when Your information is transferred outside the European Economic Area, see the section of Stripe’s privacy policy entitled “International Data Transfers”.
  • To other third parties:
    • who perform functions on Our behalf in relation to Our website or otherwise in connection with the running of Our business and for the provision of Our services such as website hosting, video call providers such as Zoom, conducting surveys and market research, providing social media analysis, providing marketing email services and data analysis tools; and
    • for the purpose of facilitating Our business and improving Our products, content, services or advertising.
  • 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.

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.

We treat the security and method of processing Your personal information very seriously, and We will never sell Your personal information under any circumstances.

International Transfers

We do not transfer Your personal data outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”) with the exception of the below.

Some of Our third-party providers are based outside the EEA or they have servers outside the EEA so their processing of Your personal data will involve a transfer of data outside the EEA. Whenever We share personal information originating in the EEA with a third-party provider outside the EEA, We will do so on the basis of lawful measures to transfer Your personal information outside the EEA, such as the EU standard contractual clauses.

Data Security

We have appropriate security measures in place to prevent personal information from being accidentally lost, or used or accessed in an unauthorised way. We limit access to Your personal information to those who have a genuine business need to know it. Those processing Your information will do so only in an authorised manner and are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

We will also use technical and organisational measures to keep Your information secure.

We will notify You and any applicable regulator of a suspected data security breach where We are legally required to do so.

Indeed, while We will use all reasonable efforts to secure Your personal data, in using the website You acknowledge that the use of the internet is not entirely secure and for this reason We cannot guarantee the security or integrity of any personal data that are transferred from You or to You via the internet. If You have any particular concerns about Your information, please contact Us using the details below.

Data Retention

How long will You use my personal data for?

By law We have to keep basic information about Our customers (including Contact, Identity and Transaction Data) for six years after they cease being customers for tax purposes.

In some circumstances You can ask Us to delete Your data: see Your legal rights below for further information.

In some circumstances We will 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.

Your Legal Rights

Under certain circumstances, You have rights under data protection laws in relation to Your personal data. Please contact Us to find out more about these rights

You have the right to:

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.

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.

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.

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.

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:

  • If You want Us to establish the data's accuracy.
  • Where Our use of the data is unlawful but You do not want Us to erase it.
  • 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.
  • You have objected to Our use of Your data but We need to verify whether We have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.

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.

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 products or services to You. We will advise You if this is the case at the time You withdraw Your consent.

No fee usually required

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 could refuse to comply with Your request in these circumstances.

What We may need from You

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.

If You would like to exercise any of these rights please:

  • email, call or write to Us
  • let Us have enough information to identify You
  • let Us have proof of Your identity (a copy of Your driving license, passport or a recent credit card/utility bill)
  • let Us know the information to which Your request relates

For further information on each of those rights, including the circumstances in which they apply, see the Guidance from the UK Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) on individual's rights under the General Data Protection Regulations (http://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/guide-to-the-general-data-protection-regulation-gdpr/individual-rights/).

From time to time We may also have other methods to unsubscribe (opt-out) from any direct marketing including for example, unsubscribe buttons or web links. If such methods are offered, please note that there may be some period after selecting to unsubscribe in which marketing may still be received while Your request is being processed.

Time limit to respond

We shall respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it could 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.

How to complain

We hope that We can resolve any query or concern You raise about Our use of Your information.

The General Data Protection Regulation also gives You a right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority. The supervisory authority in the UK is the Information Commissioner who may be contacted at https://ico.org.uk/concerns/ or telephone: 0303 123 1113.

Changes to the privacy policy

This privacy policy was published in 2020 and last updated in February 2022.

We may change this privacy policy from time to time. You should check this policy occasionally to ensure You are aware of the most recent version that will apply each time You access this website. We will also attempt to notify users of any changes by email if You have opted to receive emails.
