Processing of your personal data

 

Under the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) we control and / or process any personal information about you electronically using the following lawful bases.

The reason we use this basis: We have an interest in making sure our marketing is relevant for you, so we may process your information to send you marketing that is tailored to your interests in your business. We believe this processing is in your interests as well.

When we process your personal information based on legitimate interests, we make sure to consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative), and your rights under data protection laws. Our legitimate business interests do not automatically override your interests. We will not use your Personal Data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you.

How long we store your data: Personal data is stored for varying lengths depending on nature and purpose for which it was collected. We store personal data in line with any applicable statutory minimum periods, and then review it periodically (usually annually) to ensure it is still necessary to be retained for the purpose for which it was collected. Where there is a statutory maximum for which data can be retained, such as County Court Judgements we will delete accordingly on expiration.

Sharing your information: We only share your personal information with our email marketing service provider, Mailchimp. See further details below.
