Introduction

For the purposes of the General Data Protection Regulation or “GDPR” (and all other laws relating to the use your Personal Data), we are the “data controller”, meaning that we are responsible for deciding how your Personal Data is used and more importantly, for keeping your Personal Data safe and only using it for legitimate reasons.

We are committed to protecting your privacy and will take all steps necessary to comply with our legal obligations when using your Personal Data. This Privacy Notice explains how we fulfil this commitment, so please read this document carefully. 

By using our website or providing us with your personal information you are agreeing to this policy. We may update this policy from time to time without notice to you, so please check it regularly.

What personal data do we collect and how do we use it?

The personal data we collect depends on whether you simply visit our website or use our services too. If you visit our website, you do not need to provide us with any personal data. However, some data is transmitted automatically, for example, the date and time of accessing one of our web pages, the access status and your IP address.

Your personal data is processed solely for the purpose for which they are collected. The purpose is dependent on whether you make an enquiry, use our services or only our website.

Should you make an enquiry or use our services, personal data is needed to fulfil the requirements of a contractual or service relationship. In that case, we collect:

  • Your name (and job title, if relevant)
  • Your address and contact details (for post, telephone and email)
  • Your social media accounts/profiles
  • In certain cases, with your consent
  • Correspondence with you. 

This personal data is used by us for the provision of the service or contract. We may use your personal data for related purposes, including to provide marketing and communications, but that will only occur in the case where we have your consent or another legal justification for doing so.  

When will you use it?

  • Where you have given your consent
  • Where we are required to do in order to provide you agreed services
  • With third parties providing services to us, and agents and sub-contractors acting on our behalf
  • To government or regulatory authorities or law enforcement officials to assist with their requests and comply with our legal obligations.

Marketing and communications

We aim to communicate with you about the work that we do in ways that you find relevant, timely and useful. To do this we use data that we have stored about you, such as, what projects you have been interested in previously and preferences you have informed us about.

We use our legitimate organisational interest as the legal basis for communications by post, email and telephone. In the case of postal mailings, you may object to receiving these at any time using the contact details at the top of this policy. In the case of email and newsletter updates, such as Mailchimp, you may opt out of this by informing us through correspondence or alternatively you will have an option to unsubscribe.

Where we may communicate with you by email unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we are unable to guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk.

Similarly, your access to any other website through link on our website (including social media or otherwise) is done so at your own risk as these sites are operated independently to us and we make no representations about any other websites or the way your personal information is collected through them. Those websites may have their own privacy policies and we encourage you to look at those policies or contact the website operators directly to understand how your personal information is used.

How do we look after personal data?

We limit the amount of personal data collected only to what is fit for the purpose, as described above. We restrict, secure and control all of our information assets against unauthorised access, damage, loss or destruction whether physical or electronic.

We retain personal data only for as long as is legally necessary, in order to respond to your requests, or longer if required by law, such as for accounting purposes. If we retain your personal data for historical or statistical purposes we ensure that the personal data cannot be used further. While in our possession, together with your assistance, we try to maintain the accuracy of your personal data.

What are your rights and how can you access your personal data?

You have the right to request access to any of your personal data we may hold. In addition, you can inform us of updates and changes to your preferences or personal details at any time. To do so, please contact us through the details provided at the top of the email.

Should you be unhappy with the way in which your personal data has been handled you have the right to make a complaint to the Information Commissioner’s Office.
