Scope – What Does This Policy Cover?

This Privacy Policy applies only to your use of Our Site. It does not extend to any websites that are linked to from Our Site (whether We provide those links or whether they are shared by other users). We have no control over how your data is collected, stored or used by other websites and We advise you to check the privacy policies of any such websites before providing any data to them.

 

What Data Do We Collect?

We do NOT automatically collect data via Our Site, and do not place Cookies on your computer or device. We will only collect data if you voluntarily submit it, for example, when contacting us. Depending upon your use of Our Site, We may collect some of the following data:

 

How Do We Use Your Information?

All personal data is stored securely in accordance with the principles of the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).

We use your data to provide you the best possible service to you. This includes:

With your permission and/or where permission by law, We may also use your data for marketing purposes, which may include contacting you by email, telephone, text message, and/or post with information, news, and offers on Our services. We will not, however, send you unsolicited marketing or spam, and will take all reasonable steps to ensure that We fully comply our obligations under the General Data Protection Regulations.

 

How and Where Do We Store Your Data?

We only keep your data for as long as We need to in order to use it as described above, as long as We have your permission, or as prescribed by law.

Your data will primarily be held electronically, and stored, using military grade encryption, on a cloud-based solution with servers in Switzerland. Data security is of great importance to Us, and to protect your data We have put in place suitable physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure your data collected through our site.

Notwithstanding the security measures that We take, it is important to remember that the transmission of data via the internet may not be completely secure, and that you advised to take suitable precautions when transmitting your data to Us via the internet.

 

Do We Share Your Data?

We may provide your details to specific third parties, but only as part of Our contractual agreement with you, when supplying services to you, and, therefore, with your signed and written permission.

In certain circumstances We may be legally required to share certain data held by Us, which may include personal information, for example, where we are involved in legal proceedings, where We are complying with the requirements of legislation, a court order, or a governmental authority. We do not require any further consent from you in order to share your data in such circumstances and will comply as required with any legally binding request that is made of Us.

 

What Happens if Our Business Changes Hands?

We may, from time to time, expand or reduce Our business and this may involve the sale and/or the transfer of control of all or part of Our business. Data provided by users will, where it is relevant to any part of Our business so transferred, be transferred along with that part and the new owner or newly controlling party will, under the terms of this Privacy Policy, be permitted to use the data for the purposes for which it was originally collected by Us.

In the event that any of your data is to be transferred in such a manner, you will not be contacted in advance and informed of the changes, as your permission lies with the company, not the owners.

 

How Can You Control Your Data?

When you submit information via Our Site, you may be given options to restrict Our use of your data. In particular, We aim to give you strong controls on Our use of your data for direct marketing purposes (including the ability to opt-out of receiving emails from Us which you may do by unsubscribing using the links provided in Our emails, and at the point of providing your details).

You may also wish to sign up to one or more of the preference services operating in the UK: The Telephone Preference Service (“the TPS”), the Corporate Telephone Preference Service (“the CTPS”), and the Mailing Preference Service (“the MPS”). These may help to prevent you receiving unsolicited marketing. Please note, however, that these services will not prevent you from receiving marketing communications that you have consented to receiving.

 

Your Right to Withhold Information

You may access Our Site without providing any data at all.

 

How Can You Access Your Data?

You have the legal right to ask for a copy of any personal data held by Us (where such data is held). Please contact us for more details about Subject Access Requests via the website contact page.
