You may give us information by filling out one of our contact forms, signing up to join our mailing list or applying for a job. This information may be personal, commercial or related to your employment history. We may also collect information from you because we have a legal reason to do so (allowed by law or under contract), or because you have consented for us to do so for a specific purpose.

Information we collect about you

When you visit our website, we may automatically collect anonymised information about you on how you interact with our site - technical information, IP addresses, information about the device or browser you use to connect to our website and information on how you interact with our website. This information is collected by analysis tools and cookies such as Google Analytics. For more information, read our cookie policy.

Information we receive from other sources

We may receive information about you if you submit your information to us via any third party websites. Each of these third parties will collect your consent for that information to be shared with us.

How do we use your personal information?

We use your information to perform the actions listed below on the basis that you have provided us with your consent. Your information will be captured via our website and then transferred to our internal systems. This information will be held for as long as is required to complete the contract established between us. If no contract is in place, we will keep it until you ask us to remove it. In reference to the latter, this will be in accordance with the guidelines laid out by the GDPR.

Why does you collect personal information?

  • To respond to an enquiry you may have submitted through our contact form
  • To send you updates and news if you have joined our mailing list
  • To keep you informed about our upcoming webinars if you have subscribed
  • To consider you for employment
  • For legal reasons, for example, if you have entered into a contract with us

What legal basis do we have for processing your information?

We may process your information because:

  • We have a contract with you
  • You have given us permission to do so
  • To comply with the law

Who might we share your information with?

We may share your personal information with third parties if you've consented to this or for legal reasons. For example, we may share your personal information with: our group companies, which means our subsidiaries, or our ultimate holding company and its subsidiaries, as defined in section 1159 of the UK Companies Act 2006.

Where we store your data

If you provide information via any of the contact forms on our website, this will be captured and stored temporarily in our website database. It will also be transferred to our internal systems for further processing.

Transmission and storage of your personal data

The transmission of information online isn't always completely secure and although we use best practice to ensure your data is encrypted to the standard advised in the GDPR, we can't guarantee the security of your data as it is transmitted and stored.

How long will we keep your personal information?

We won't keep your personal information for longer than we need it, just as long as is required by law or until you request us to stop using it. If you ask us to remove your data, we will need to keep your request to be erased even if it includes your personal data until such time as you are no longer a client.

Your rights

We will always respect your legal rights to your data. Below are your rights and what we will do to protect them.

The right to be informed

We are publishing this Privacy Notice to keep you informed about what we do with your information.

The right to access

You have the right to access the information you have given to us. Please email us to amend or remove it at any time.

The right to rectification

If the information we hold is inaccurate or not complete, you have the right to ask us to rectify it. If that data has been passed to a third party with your consent or for legal reasons, then we must also ask them to rectify the data. Please email us as needed.

The right to erasure

This is sometimes called ‘the right to be forgotten'. If you want us to erase all of your personal data and we do not have a legal reason to continue to process and hold it, simply email us.

The right to restrict processing

You have the right to ask us to restrict how we process your data. This means we are permitted to store the data but not further process it. We keep just enough data to make sure we respect your request in the future. If you want us to restrict processing your data, please email us.

The right to data portability

We are required to allow you to obtain and reuse your personal data for your own purposes across services in a safe and secure way without this affecting the usability of your data. Please email us. This right only applies to personal data that you have provided to us as the Data Controller. The data must be held by us by consent or for the performance of a contract.

The right to object

You have the right to object to us processing your data even if it is based on legitimate interests, the exercise of official authority, direct marketing (including data aggregation) and anonymous analytics used for site measurement and improvement. If you wish to object, please email us.

The right to withdraw consent

If you have given us consent to process your data but change your mind later, you have the right to withdraw at any time, and we must stop processing it. To do this, please email us.

The right to complain to a Supervisory Authority
