We may 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. For example, we may aggregate your usage data to calculate the percentage of users accessing a specific website feature. 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 privacy notice.
Where we need to collect personal data by law, or under the terms of a contract we have with you and you fail to provide that data when requested, we may not be able to perform the contract or other agreement we have or are trying to enter into with you. In this case, we may have to cancel a product or service you have with us but we will endeavour to notify you if this is the case at the time.

What are cookies? A cookie is a text file containing small amounts of information, which is downloaded to your device when you access a website. The text file is then sent back to our server each time your browser requests a page from the server. This enables us to operate the Website more effectively and load the Website in such a way as to reflect your personal preferences based on your previous browsing on the Website, as well as keywords we may be able to gather from URLs of webpages from which you accessed the Website.
What cookies do we use? We use the following cookies:

How we will use your information
We will only use your personal data when the law permits. Most commonly, we will use your personal data in the following circumstances:
More specifically, we may use your information for the following purposes:
Disclosure of your information
We may share your personal information with any member of our group, which means our subsidiaries, our ultimate holding company and its subsidiaries, as defined in section 1159 of the UK Companies Act 2006.
When 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.
We may disclose your information to third-parties:
The third parties include:
We may share some broader statistics and customer profiling information with third parties and other partner/sponsor organisations on an anonymous basis, so you would not be identifiable from that data. We will not rent or sell our user’s details to any other organisation or individual.
Storage of your personal data
If you have any questions about how your data is stored, please contact us directly with your questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In this regard, whenever we transfer your personal data out of the EEA, we will aim to ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by implementing certain safeguards. For instance, we will endeavour to only transfer your personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data by the European Commission, we may use specific contracts approved by the European Commission which give personal data the same protection it has in Europe, and, where we use providers based in the US, we may only transfer data to them if they are part of the Privacy Shield which requires them to provide similar protection to personal data shared between Europe and the US.
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 on this Website 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 on the Website if there is a security breach.
We will keep your information stored on our systems for as long as it takes to provide the services to you. 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.
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.
Even if you have accepted the processing of your personal data for marketing purposes (by ticking the relevant box), you have the right, under certain circumstances, to:
You can exercise this right at any time by contacting us at email@example.com or +44 (0) 207 400 0400.
The Website may, from time to time, contain links to and from the websites of sponsors, business partners, advertisers and affiliates, among others. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies. Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to these websites.
From 25 May 2018, 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 in the section titled ‘Information we may collect’ above. You can exercise this right from 25 May 2018 by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org or +44 (0) 207 400 0400.
Access to information
European 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. You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances. Sometimes you may be asked to provide proof of identity before we show you your personal information. This is to 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@example.com or +44 (0) 207 400 0400.
Changes to Terms and Conditions
The policy was last updated in June 2018 and will be regularly reviewed and amended by us. You will be deemed to accept the terms and conditions (as amended) when you next use this site following any amendment.
