Sources of personal data

We collect personal information about you when we take and process your contract with us.

Our purposes for processing your data

  • Gathering pre-contract information in order to be able to enter into a contract with you.
  • Administering the contract we have entered into with you and dealing with any issues arising from it.
  • Business management and planning, including accounting and auditing.
  • To maintain ongoing customer service.

 Our lawful bases for processing your data

We will use your personal information in the following circumstances:

  • In other cases, we may seek your consent to processing your data.

Who has access to your data

We may share your personal information with third parties where required by law, where it is necessary to administer the business relationship with you or where we have another legitimate interest in doing so.

Recipients of your data may include third-party service providers (such as our sub-contractors), other related business entities, statutory regulators, such as HMRC or to otherwise comply with the law.

We will never disclose your personal data to third parties for marketing purposes.

Security of your data

We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal information from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal information to those, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know.

We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected data security breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected breach where we are legally required to do so.

We will only retain your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting or reporting requirements. Records will be kept for a period of 7 years beyond the contract you enter into for accounting purposes and for us to fulfil our legal requirements to HMRC.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

You have the right to:

  • Request a copy of your personal data. If you do so, we must comply within one month.
  • Request correction of your personal data if it is incorrect.
  • Request erasure of your personal data (but whether we can do this depends upon our lawful basis for continuing to hold it).
