The company may also be required to disclose your information to the police or intelligence services, where required or permitted by law.

8. Legal basis for processing.

Under GDPR guidelines it is important we clearly explain how we operate, what processes we follow and also on what authority we process Personal Data. Operating under instructions from yourself, we would generally have a “Contractual” basis for lawful processing or to fulfill a contractual requirement.
When instructed to do so, we may also be processing on “Legal Obligation”. There may also be occasions whereby we may process Personal Data under “Legitimate Interests”.

With regards to any marketing campaigns undertaken, we would usually operate and send marketing information to clients under the terms of “Legitimate Interest” whereby the client has previously instructed us to supply services to them.

If this is not the case, we would be operating using “Consent”, which can be freely withdrawn at any time using the “Opt-Out” options within our emails.
Consent can also be withdrawn at any time either from legitimate consent or explicit consent via a telephone call to our head office and we never collect any automated “Opt-In” customer databases. We always add an “Opt-Out” option to all of our marketing literate.

9. Automated processing.

The company does not use any automated decision-making tools. Therefore there are no areas in which you may request that we do not process your personal information in this way.

10. Your rights.

Under the GDPR, you have a number of rights that you can exercise in certain circumstances. These are generally free of charge. In summary, you may have the right to:

  • Ask for access to your personal information and other supplementary information;
  • Ask for correction of mistakes in your information or to complete missing information the company holds on you;
  • Ask for your personal information to be erased, in certain circumstances;
  • Receive a copy of the personal information you have provided to us or have this information sent to a third party. This will be provided to you or the third party in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format, e.g. a Word file;
  • Object at any time to processing of your personal information for direct marketing;
  • Object in certain other situations to the continued processing of your personal information;
  • Restrict the processing of your personal information in certain circumstances;
  • Request not to be the subject in automated decision-making which produces legal effects that concern you or affects you in a significant way.

If you require more information about your rights under the GDPR, please see the Guidance from the Information Commissioner’s Office.

If you would like to exercise any of these rights, please:

  • Use the contact details within this privacy notice;
  • The company will need to ask you to provide other information so that you can be identified;
  • Please provide a contact address so that you can be contacted to request further information to verify your identity;
  • Provide proof of your identity and address;
  • State the right or rights that you wish to exercise.

The company will respond to you within one month from when we receive your request unless your request is very complex. You will be notified if this is the case and we may require up to three months to process your request.
You have the right to ask us not to process your Personal Data. This is a right under the existing Data Protection Regulation 2018 guide lines as well as under the new GDPR regulations.

This may relate to data we hold on you in general or data that we use for marketing.

However, you should be aware there may be a legal precedence that supersedes your wishes with regards to processing personal data for legal reasons.

You can, of course, withdraw your consent for marketing purposes at any time.

For security reasons, your identity will need to be confirmed before this process can begin.

11. Children’s Data.

Our professional services do not address anyone under the age of 16. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 16. If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your child has provided us with Personal Data, please contact us immediately.
