Our “lawful reasons” for processing your personal data
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the primary piece of legislation defining your rights over our processing of your personal information. The GDPR requires us to declare which of six “lawful reasons” we are relying on when we are processing your personal data: we operate on the basis of “consent” when sending newsletters (you will not receive a newsletter unless you have explicitly opted in to receive one). We operate on the basis of “legitimate interest” when communicating with you in other ways (e.g. when responding to your enquiry).
How long we keep personal data and where we store it
From time to time we may pass personal data such as your name and email address to other services that we use to send out newsletter and other communications (both electronic and print). However, your personal data will never be sold or transferred outside the European Economic Area ("EEA").
Personal data may be stored by the website for a period of up to 90 days after which time it is removed automatically.
Should you enquire about our services via an online form, we have a legitimate interest to store this data for up to one year from the date of your enquiry.
