MARKETING COMMUNICATIONS

Our lawful ground of processing your personal data in order to send you marketing communications is either your consent, or our legitimate interests in growing our business.

We may send you email marketing communications if you requested information about or purchased our goods or services or if you agreed to receive marketing communications and you have not opted out of receiving such communications.

You can request that we stop sending you marketing messages at any time, either by contacting us directly, or by using the unsubscribe button at the bottom of any of our emails.

If you are a limited company, we may send you marketing emails without your consent, but you can opt out of receiving such emails at any time.

Please note that opting out of receiving marketing communications does not apply to personal data provided as a result of transactions such as purchases.

 DISCLOSURES OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA

We may share your personal data with third parties such as IT and system administration services providers, professional advisers such as lawyers, accountants and auditors, governmental authorities (that require us to report processing activities or disclose your personal data), fraud prevention agencies, or third parties to whom we may sell or transfer part or all of our business.

These third parties are expected to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with any current and applicable law. These third parties are only allowed to process your personal data for specified purposes.

DATA RETENTION AND SECURITY

We only retain your personal data for as long as it is necessary in order to fulfil the purposes for which we collected it; this includes satisfying any accounting, reporting or legal requirements.

Please note that for tax purposes for example, the law requires us to keep basic information (such as contact, identity, financial and transaction data) about our customers for several years after they stop being customers.

In some instances, we may anonymise your personal data for statistical or research purposes. In these cases, we may use this information indefinitely, without further notice to you.

We have security measures in place to prevent your personal data from being accessed, used or disclosed without authorisation. We only allow employees or partners who have a business need to access your personal data to do so and must keep it confidential. In case of a suspected personal data breach we will notify you if we are legally required to do so. 

YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS

Under data protection laws, you have rights in relation to your personal data and you can learn about these here:  https://www.eugdpr.org/.

Please contact us if you wish to exercise any of these rights. We strive to respond to all legitimate requests within 30 days. If your request is particularly complex, or if you make various requests, it may take us longer than this. We will notify you if this is likely to happen.

There is no fee involved to exercise any these rights. However, we may charge a reasonable administration fee if your request is unfounded or repetitive, or we may refuse to comply with your request if we have legal grounds to do so.

We may need to request specific information from you to enable us to confirm your identity, and to ensure you have the right to access your personal data. This is simply a security measure to enable us to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to someone who has no right to receive it.
