The way we process your information varies depending on our relationship with you.

Your personal information will only be used for the fulfilment of any contracts between us or to provide you with information on products or services that you request from us or which we feel may interest you.

We will use some of the personal information supplied by you to ensure that content from our website is presented in the most effective manner for you and your computer, to keep a record of the services you have subscribed to, to deliver services you may have requested, to notify you about changes to our services, to contact you in response to applications made by you, to contact you in order to promote our services, to inform you of sector developments that may affect you or to inform you of new products, services or events which we think may be of interest to you.

If you have provided us with your contact details, we may contact you by telephone, post or by email.

We will not pass on your personal data to third parties in order for them to market to you unless you have expressly agreed that we may do so.

We will retain your personal information for so long as is reasonably necessary and delete it thereafter. You have the right to contact us at any time to ask us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes by writing to us or by sending an email to

Disclosure of your personal data

We will only disclose your personal information to another person or organisation where we:

  • Need to share the information to provide a product or service you have requested;
  • Need to send the information to persons or organisations who engage us to conduct services on their behalf, including where you are that third party’s customer;
  • Need to send the information to persons or organisations that work on our behalf to provide a product or service to you but such persons or organisations may only use this information in order to provide such product or service on our behalf and not for any other purpose. Where such a person or organisation does work on our behalf we will ensure that they take appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect your personal information against unauthorised or unlawful processing and against accidental loss or destruction of, or damage to, personal information; or
  • Are required to disclose the information in order to comply with the law or the requirements of a regulatory authority.

Where we store your personal data

The personal information that we collect from you will be stored on our servers, which are situated within the UK.

We do not normally process your data internationally; however there are exceptions to this such as:

  • to third parties (such as advisers or other Suppliers to our business);
  • to overseas clients
  • to clients within your country who may, in turn, transfer your data internationally;
  • to a cloud-based storage provider; and
  • to other third parties, as referred to here.

We want to make sure that your data are stored and transferred in a secure way. We will therefore only transfer data outside of the European Economic Area or EEA where it is compliant with data protection legislation and the means of transfer provides adequate safeguards in relation to your data, for example:

  • by way of data transfer agreement, incorporating the current standard contractual clauses adopted by the European Commission for the transfer of personal data by data controllers in the EEA to data controllers and processors in jurisdictions without adequate data protection laws; or
  • by signing up to the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework for the transfer of personal data from entities in the EU to entities in the United States of America or any equivalent agreement in respect of other jurisdictions; or
  • transferring your data to a country where there has been a finding of adequacy by the European Commission in respect of that country's levels of data protection via its legislation; or
  • where it is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between ourselves and a third party and the transfer is in your interests for the purposes of that contract (for example, if we need to transfer data outside the EEA in order to meet our obligations under that contract if you are a Client of ours); or
  • where you have consented to the data transfer.

Retention of your personal data

We will retain your personal information only so long as is reasonably necessary for the purpose for which it was obtained and in accordance with our legal obligations and follow our data destruction policy and processes thereafter.

You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.

What we may need from you

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.

We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
