Personal data is defined by the General Data Protection Regulation (EU Regulation 2016/679) (the “GDPR”) as ‘any information relating to an identifiable person who can be directly or indirectly identified in particular by reference to an identifier’.
Personal data is, in simpler terms, any information about you that enables you to be identified. Personal data covers obvious information such as your name and contact details but it also covers less obvious information such as identification numbers, electronic location data, and other online identifiers.
The personal data that we use is set out in Part 5, below.
Under the GDPR, you have the following rights, which we will always work to uphold:
b) The right to have your personal data rectified if any of your personal data held by us is inaccurate or incomplete. Please contact us using the details in Part 11 to find out more.
c) The right to be forgotten, i.e. the right to ask us to delete or otherwise dispose of any of your personal data that we have. Please contact us using the details in Part 11 to find out more.
d) The right to restrict (i.e. prevent) the processing of your personal data. The right to object to us using your personal data for a particular purpose or purposes.
e) The right to data portability. This means that, if you have provided personal data to us directly, we are using it with your consent or for the performance of a contract, and that data is processed using automated means, you can ask us for a copy of that personal data to re-use with another service or business in many cases.
f) Rights relating to automated decision-making and profiling. We do not use your personal data in this way.
For more information about our use of your personal data or exercising your rights as outlined above, please contact us using the details provided in Part 11.
Further information about your rights can also be obtained from the Information Commissioner’s Office or your local Citizens Advice Bureau.
If you have any cause for complaint about our use of your personal data, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioner’s Office.
We may collect some or all of the following personal data (this may vary according to your relationship with us):
Under the GDPR, we must always have a lawful basis for using personal data. This may be because the data is necessary for our performance of a contract with you, because you have consented to our use of your personal data, or because it is in our legitimate business interests to use it. Your personal data will be used for one of the following purposes:
a) Providing and managing your account.
b) Supplying our products and/or services to you. Your personal details are required in order for us to enter into a contract with you.
c) Personalising and tailoring our products and/or services for you.
d) Communicating with you. This may include responding to emails or calls from you.
e) Supplying you with information by email that you have opted-in to receive (you may unsubscribe or opt-out at any time by using the unsubscribe function in any email that you receive from us).
With your permission and/or where permitted by law, we may also use your personal data for marketing purposes, which may include contacting you by email and / or telephone and / or text message and or post with information, news, and offers on our products and / or services. You will not be sent any unlawful marketing or spam. We will always work to fully protect your rights and comply with our obligations under the GDPR and the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003, and you will always have the option to opt-out.
We will not keep your personal data for any longer than is necessary regardless of the reason(s) for which it was first collected.
We will store data that is required to maintain an accurate record of our financial and accounting history with you for a minimum of 6 years (or, where there is no fixed period, the following factors will be used to determine how long it is kept).
If you are based in the European Economic Area, then we will only store or transfer your personal data on servers located within the European Economic Area (the “EEA”). The EEA consists of all EU member states, plus Norway, Iceland, and Liechtenstein. This means that your personal data will be fully protected under the GDPR or to equivalent standards by law.
If you are based outside the European Economic Area, we will generally store your data on servers located within the region in which you live. For example, data belonging to clients who live in USA or Canada will generally be stored on servers located in USA / Canada region. Likewise, data belonging to clients who live in Australia or New Zealand will generally be stored on servers located in the Australia / New Zealand Region.
We sometimes contract with the following third parties to supply products and / or services to you on our behalf. These may include for example payment processing and marketing solutions. In some cases, those third parties may require access to some or all of your personal data that we hold.
a) Stripe - for the purpose of Credit Card payments. Payment processing - https://stripe.com/guides/general-data-protection-regulation
b) Mailchimp for the purpose of marketing services - https://kb.mailchimp.com/accounts/management/about-the-general-data-protection-regulation
If any of your personal data is required by a third party, such as those described above, we will take steps to ensure that your personal data is handled safely, securely, and in accordance with your rights, our obligations, and the third party’s obligations under the law, as described above in Part 8.
If any personal data is transferred outside of the EEA, we will take suitable steps in order to ensure that your personal data is treated just as safely and securely as it would be within the UK and under the GDPR, as explained above in Part 8.
In some limited circumstances, we may be legally required to share certain personal data, which might include yours. If we are involved in legal proceedings or complying with legal obligations, a court order, or the instructions of a government authority.
If you want to know what personal data we hold about you, you can contact us for details of that personal data and for a copy of it (where any such personal data is held). This is known as a “subject access request”.
All subject access requests should be made in writing and sent to the email or postal addresses shown in Part 11.
There is not normally any charge for a subject access request. If your request is ‘manifestly unfounded or excessive’ (for example, if you make repetitive requests) a fee may be charged to cover our administrative costs in responding.
We will respond to your subject access request within 7 working days and, in any case, not more than one month of receiving it. Normally, we aim to provide a complete response, including a copy of your personal data within that time. In some cases, however, particularly if your request is more complex, more time may be required up to a maximum of three months from the date we receive your request. You will be kept fully informed of our progress.
