How is processing your personal data lawful?
We are allowed to process your personal data for the following reasons and on the following legal bases:
• Legitimate Interests: We are permitted to process your personal data if it is based on our ‘legitimate interests’ i.e. we have good, sensible, practical reasons for processing your personal data which is in the interests of us. To do so, we have considered the impact on your interests and rights, and have placed appropriate safeguards to ensure that the intrusion on your privacy is reduced as much as possible. You can object to processing that we carry out on the grounds of Legitimate Interests. See the section headed “Your Rights” to find out how.
• Contract: It is necessary for our performance of the contract you have agreed to enter with us. If you do not provide your personal data to us, we will not be able to carry out our obligations under the terms of your contract.
• Consent: Sometimes we want to use your personal data in a way that is entirely optional for you, such as sending you marketing material. On these occasions, we will ask for your consent to use your information. You can withdraw this consent at any time.
Who will have access to your personal data?
Like any business, we use service providers to operate our website. Some of these service providers will process your data as part of the services they offer to us. We take steps to ensure that our service providers treat your data in accordance with the law, only use it in accordance with our contract with them and keep it secure. Our website hosting provider is Digital Ocean. If you would like to know the names of our other service providers, please contact us using the details at the start of this Privacy Notice.
How we keep your data secure
We strive to implement appropriate technical and organisational measures in order to protect your personal data against accidental or unlawful destruction, accidental loss or alteration, unauthorised disclosure or access and any other unlawful forms of processing.

We follow recognised industry practices for protecting our IT environment and physical facilities.

• Right to object to processing of your personal data: You may object to us processing your personal data where we rely on a Legitimate Interest as our legal grounds for processing.

• Right to correct any mistakes in your information: You can require us to correct any mistakes in your information which we hold.

– you do not think that your data is accurate. We will start processing again once we have checked whether or not it is accurate;
– the processing is unlawful but you do not want us to erase your data;
– we no longer need the personal data for our processing, but you need the data to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or
– you have objected to processing because you believe that your interests should override our Legitimate Interests.
• Right to data portability: You may ask for an electronic copy of your personal data which we hold electronically and which we process when we have entered into a contract with you. You can also ask us to provide this directly to another party.
• Right to withdraw consent: You may withdraw any consent that you have given us to process your personal data at any time.

– you object to our processing and we do not have any Legitimate Interests that mean we can continue to process your data; or
– your data has been processed unlawfully or have not been erased when it should have been.
