This policy supplements the other policies/notices, and our Terms and Conditions of Business, and is not intended to override them. 

We may change the terms of this policy from time to time.  This version is dated May 2018.

The data we collect about you 

Personal data, or personal information, means any information about an individual from which that person can be identified. It does not include data where the identity has been removed (anonymous data).

We may collect, use, store and transfer different kinds of personal data about you as follows:

  • Identity Data includes name, job title and username or similar identifier
  • Contact Data includes address, email address and telephone numbers that you provide.

  • Usage Data includes information about how you use our website, products and services.

We also collect, use and share Aggregated Data such as statistical or demographic data for any purpose. Aggregated Data may be derived from your personal data but is not considered personal data in law as this data does not directly or indirectly reveal your identity. However, if we combine or connect Aggregated Data with your personal data so that it can directly or indirectly identify you, we treat the combined data as personal data which will be used in accordance with this policy.

      Change of purpose

      We do not sell, distribute or otherwise make personal data commercially available to any party, except as described in this policy or with your prior permission.

      We may have to share your personal data with:

      Protection of your personal data 

      We take the security of the personal data we hold seriously. Policies and procedures are in place to safeguard it from loss, misuse and improper disclosure.

      All data is stored on a UK server where the website is hosted.  These servers comply with UK Data Centres, EU Laws and General Data Protection Regulations.

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

For how long will we use your personal data? 

We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, regulatory or reporting requirements. To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider:

  • the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the data;
  • the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of the data;
  • the purposes for which we process the data; and
  • the applicable legal requirements.

If you have opted out of receiving future publications from us, your contact details will remain on our opt-out list to prevent you from receiving any further publications from us.
