This Privacy Notice describes how we collect, use, share, store or otherwise process the information we hold about you. Your personal information allows us to provide a range of services, which include the development and hosting of websites and associated marketing activities on behalf of third parties.

We also process your personal information in order to fulfil a contract we have with you. For example, when you gain employment or purchase a service from us, we will process your information to administer that transaction.
Sometimes we may use your information to help us operate our facilities or provide services, but only where that activity doesn’t negatively affect your rights. For example, we might use your information to communicate with you on the basis of our legitimate interest.
There may be situations where we need to use your information to comply with legal obligations. For example, we are required by law to keep certain records of visitors in case there is an emergency, so we can make sure you’re safe.

We sometimes use your information for other reasons, so to help we have added more information to these below.
In addition to sending you information about the products and services you use, and where we have your permission, we may send you direct marketing communications about our products, services, events and offers, as well as those of our commercial partners that we think you’ll be interested in.
Direct marketing communications may be sent by post, email, telephone, social media, messages including push notifications to your mobile devices, and via other electronic means such as when you visit our websites or use our apps.
We may send you direct marketing while you have an ongoing relationship with us and for a reasonable time after you have used one of our products or services.

You will be able to opt-out of direct marketing by following the instructions in the communications you receive or by changing your device settings.

Your information may be used to take payment for products and services and may be used to verify credit details related to payments.
Your information will be disclosed where we are obliged by law to do so. We may also disclose your information where we are allowed by law to protect or enforce our rights or the rights of others and for the detection and prevention of crimes, such as fraud.
When you complete our registration forms or use our services, we may transfer your information to our processors - companies that carry out activities on our behalf, and only on our instructions.
We do not transfer your personal data outside of the EEA.
If you contact us by phone or on chat the conversation may be recorded and listened to for training and quality purposes.
Our websites and apps may provide plug-ins to social media websites, including Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo and LinkedIn.
If you make use of, or log-in to, the social media features on our websites or apps, we may (depending on your privacy settings) access, use and store information about you, including, but not limited to: your name, e-mail address, gender, location, profile, picture, contacts, and any other information you have chosen to make available.
When you visit our websites we may check (by using script, code, cookies or other technical means) if you are using ad-blocker or other privacy tools. If we do detect one of these tools, we may ask you or ask your browser to ask you, if you would give us permission to ignore those settings and continue to serve adverts and/or collect your information using cookies and similar technologies.
Where you provide your information to us we do not share it with any third parties except in the performance of a contract or in anticipation of a contract. Your information will only be shared and used in accordance with this notice, and where an agreement is in place to ensure that your information is protected. We won’t sell your personal information without your consent.
For example, we will share your information with a finance company for the administrative purposes of providing you or your organisation credit facilities, as well as making sure information is accurate, up to date and to enable business planning and continuity.
There may be situations where we use data processors – companies who act on our behalf – to process your information for us. These processors can only use your information in accordance with our instructions and for the purposes in this Policy.
If we restructure or sell all or part of our business or business operations, we may transfer your information as part of that activity. Where this is the case your information will be used in accordance with this Notice unless you are notified otherwise.
You can change your mind about receiving direct marketing from us or change your preferences by logging into your account, if you have one. You may also opt-out from within any marketing or product communication you have received from us, or you may email us using the contact details below.
You may request a copy of your personal information which we may hold about you. You may also ask us to correct any inaccuracies in your personal information. This right may be restricted by law where disclosing information may result in the personal information of other individuals being disclosed and it would be unreasonable to do so.
Where we may rely on consent to use your information, you have the right to withdraw that consent for that processing activity at any time. However, we may have the right to rely on an alternative legal basis for the processing activity and will inform you of that.
If you do withdraw consent we may not be able to provide you with the product or service you have requested.
You may have the right to object, erase, or restrict our processing of your information - for example, where we process your personal information because this is in our legitimate interests, you may object to this. We will carefully consider your request as there may be circumstances which require us to, or allow us to, continue processing your data.
If you have any comments, concerns or complaints about our uses of your information we would ask that you contact us first, so that we can try and resolve any matter.
However, where we are unable to help, you are able to complain to the Information Commissioner’s Office in the United Kingdom or the data protection regulator in your country of residence, who will be able to liaise with the UK Information Commissioner in the UK.
We shall retain your information in accordance with our records retention policy, or for as long as necessary for the uses set out in this notice or while there is a legitimate business reason for doing so.
If you ask us to delete your information before this time, we may not be able to do so for technical, legal, regulatory or contractual constraints. For example, where you wish to be suppressed from direct marketing, we would need to retain your information for this purpose.
Where you ask for your account to be closed, we will do this as soon as possible subject to any terms and conditions relating to the account. Your information will be retained in order to comply with legal and regulatory obligations as well as for analysis, to prevent fraud, collect any monies owed, and to resolve disputes.
