If you wish to raise a complaint on how we have handled your personal data, you can contact us as above and we will investigate the matter.

If you are not satisfied with our response or believe we are not processing your personal data in accordance with the requirements of GDPR, then you are within your rights to lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).

Data Collection


We need to know basic personal data to provide you with our services, and because of our right to be paid in return for our services under our standard terms of business if we are contracted to work for your company. If you do not provide this information then we will be unable to provide the services you have requested. We will not collect any personal data from you that we do not need in order to provide and oversee the services we have agreed to provide you with.


Use of Data


All the personal data we hold about you will be processed by our employees.  No third parties will have access to your personal data unless there is a legal obligation for us to provide them with this.

If we authorise a marketing agency for the purposes of approved and compliant marketing activities only, as instructed by the ‘Company’, including the sending of marketing e-mails then it will have access to the data. They too will be covered by the requirements of GDPR and may not use or share this data with any other party.

We may also process your personal data if it is necessary for the performance of a contract with you, or to take steps to enter into a contract. An example of this would be processing your data in connection with providing you with services.

We will also communicate with you information about other services we can offer you and update you about our activities.

Where your information is used other than in accordance with one of these uses, we will first obtain your consent to that use. We take all reasonable steps to ensure that your personal data is processed securely.


How long do we keep data?


Typically we keep your personal data for a minimum of 6 years, after which time it will be destroyed if it is no longer required for the lawful purpose(s) for which it was obtained.

If you consent to marketing, any information we use for this purpose will be kept with us until you notify us that you no longer wish to receive this information.


Sharing your personal data


Your personal data will only be shared with third parties including other data controllers where it is necessary for the performance of the data controllers’ tasks or where you first give us your prior consent. It is likely that we will need to share your data with:

  • members of staff in the Company
  • Our agents, suppliers and contractors.

Any personal data transferred to countries or territories outside the European Union will only be placed on systems complying with measures giving equivalent protection of personal rights either through international agreements or contracts approved by the European Union.
