Why we use your personal information

We process your personal data for the following purposes:

  • To allow us to complete any tasks or projects and services we offer to our customers
  • Internal record keeping
  • To enable us to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations

If we plan to introduce further processes for the use of your information, we will provide information about that purpose prior to such processing.

The legal basis for processing

Under Data Protection Law, there are various grounds which are considered to be a ‘legal basis for processing’.
The legal basis for processing should be determined by the Data Controller.

Where we are the Data Processor, the legal basis is determined by the Customer. Typically, the legal basis in this scenario is:
                ‘processing is necessary for the requirement of a task, project or service carried out for an individual or your business interest’

Where we are the Data Controller, the legal basis for processing is based on:
                ‘processing is necessary for the purposes of legitimate interests pursued by the controller’

It should be noted that in some circumstances this legal basis may vary, however, we always operate in full compliance with Data Protection Law and will only process data with a fair and reasonable legal basis for doing so.

What personal information we process

In order to carry out these services, we obtain (either from the Customer and/or from you directly) and process the following information:

  • Name and job Title.
  • Contact information including address, telephone number and email.
  • Demographic information such as postcode.
  • Other information relevant to potential projects

How we process your personal information

We use your personal information, and some of our employees have access to such information, only to the extent required to carry out the services for you and on behalf of the Customer.

We have introduced appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of your personal information during storage, processing and transit.

Some of our supporting services (for example G Suite, WorkflowMax), might use cloud platforms that operate from Third Countries outside of the EEA. Where this is the case, we ensure that adequate safeguards are established to protect your data.
