This Privacy Notice explains how we do this and tells you about your privacy rights and how the law protects you.

Your personal data is any data relating to you from which you can be identified.

This notice sets out:

  • How we will process any personal data that we collect from you and what it will be used for
  • The information you are entitled to receive from us when we collect your personal data
  • Your rights under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in connection with the way we handle your personal data

This Privacy Notice also applies to any personal data which we may collect from third parties about you and/or which we may collect when you access our website and/or in the course of our relationship.

You can choose not to give personal data. We may need to collect personal data by law, or under the terms of a contract and/or relationship that we have with you. If you choose not to give us this personal data, it may delay or prevent us from meeting our obligations. It may also mean that we cannot perform services so we cancel a product or service you have with us.

Wherever we refer to ‘processing’ of personal data in this Privacy Notice this includes any combination of the following activities: collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
