    1. We may share your personal information from time to time with any member of our group of companies, which means our subsidiaries, our ultimate holding company and its subsidiaries, as defined in section 1159 of the UK Companies Act 2006.

    2. If we share your information with third parties they will process your information as either a data controller or as our data processor and this will depend on the purposes of our sharing your personal data. We will only share your personal data in compliance with the applicable data protection legislation.

    1. We do not store or transfer your personal data outside the United Kingdom.

    2. We follow strict security procedures as to how your personal information is stored and used, and who sees it, to help stop any unauthorised person getting hold of it. All personal information you register in relation to our Services will be located behind a firewall. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure and although we do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data. So we cannot accept any liability for the loss, theft or misuse of the personal information which you have registered in respect of our Services if there is a security breach.

    3. We will keep your information stored on our systems for as long as it takes to provide the Services to you or for as long as is necessary to meet our own legal obligations. We may also hold your information for the purposes of our own statistical analysis but will ensure that appropriate safeguards and anonymisation measures are in place to protect your data in these circumstances. The third parties we engage to provide services on our behalf will keep your data stored on their systems for as long as is necessary to provide the Services to you. We will not store your information for longer than is reasonably necessary or required by law, and will otherwise action any request to return and delete data within 28 days of such request.

  5. Your rights

    1. The Services may, from time to time, contain links to and from the websites of external third party service providers that we use to deliver our Services. If you follow a link to any of these providers, please note that these providers have their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies. Please check these policies before you permit any personal data to be sent to us via an external service provider.

    2. You will be entitled to receive the personal data that you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format, and to transmit that data to another data controller. The types of data that can be provided are those set out at paragraph 3.1 above. You can exercise this right by contacting us at [email protected].

  6. Access to information

    1. Data Protection Legislation gives you the right to access information held about you. You are entitled to be told by us whether we or someone else on our behalf is processing your personal information; what personal information we hold; details of the purposes for the processing of your personal information; and details of any third party with whom your personal information has been shared. In the event that an access request is unfounded or excessive, we may charge a ‘reasonable fee’ for meeting that request. Similarly, we may charge a reasonable fee to comply with requests for further copies of the same information (that fee will be based upon the administrative costs of providing the information). Sometimes you may be asked to provide proof of identity before we show you your personal information - that's so we can prevent unauthorised access. Your rights to access, rectify such information, object or cancel the information we hold about you can be exercised at any time by contacting us at [email protected].
