Our legal basis under GDPR for doing so is that such processing is required in connection with fulfilling our legal obligations and is in our legitimate interests in respect of running our business including developing our Service, ensuring security and performance of our website and informing our overall marketing strategy

In respect of all groups we will generally not collect sensitive or special category data from you via our website. Sensitive or special category data is Personal Information which includes your racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, or trade union membership, genetic or biometric data, or information concerning your health or mental wellbeing or sexual orientation. Where we do require to process such sensitive or special category data to provide our Service to you we will notify you in advance and will request your express consent in writing to process such sensitive data.

If you do not wish us to collect any of the Personal Information stated above, you should discuss this with us. We can explain the reasons for collection and discuss the consequences of not providing the information or of providing partial or incomplete information and the effect this may have on our ability to provide our Service.


We will only retain your Personal Information for as long as is necessary in line with the purposes for which it was originally requested or collected or where we are required to do so for some legal or reporting purpose.

In working out how long we retain personal data we look at the type of personal data involved, the purpose of processing, how sensitive or confidential the data is and at legal and commercial considerations including any legal obligations we have. By way of example by law in respect of Members we are required to keep accounting records for six years after end of the year in which the last transaction with you occurred. This means that we will be required to keep some basic client details for that purpose even although our relationship with you may be at an end. However, it should be noted that the requirement is basic customer details and therefore it is not legitimate to also keep information such as your preferences for that period of time. Where we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your Personal Data we will either delete it or anonymise it (for example because your Personal Information has been stored in backup archives) then we will securely store your Personal Information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.

If you have any questions relating to either retention periods or require more detail on the purposes of processing or the specific reason or legal grounds, we are relying on for that processing then please contact us for additional information.

  • Third party providers of Service such as contractors taking payments on our behalf but only to the extent necessary for the provision of the Service;
  • Regulatory authorities who require reporting of our activities by law such as the tax authorities;
  • Professional advisers such as our lawyers, accountants, bankers and insurers;
  • Debt collection agencies for the purposes of credit control or recovery of any sums due by you to us; and

We may provide you with information on products that we sell. In order to optimise your customer experience with you this may include postal mail, SMS and emails to you to update you on our latest offers and events. We may also show you content via social media platforms and other external applications such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. This is regarded as marketing activity.

We take information security very seriously. Your information and records will be stored securely to ensure privacy of your Personal Information. We take all reasonable steps to ensure that there are technical and organisational measures of security in place to protect your personal data from unauthorised access to or disclosure of it, and against loss or accidental damage or unauthorised alteration of it. Staff handling your personal data are also adequately trained in relation to the legal requirements for handling personal data. These include robust procedures for dealing with breaches including incident reporting and notifying the national supervisory or data protection authorities, and where appropriate you, of any breaches, the consequences of the same and the remedial action taken.

Where possible the information you provide us with will be held within the European Economic Area (“EEA”) or within the UK.


We would point out that countries outside of the EEA do not always have similar levels of protection for personal data as those inside the EEA. The law provides that transfers of personal data in respect of EU based individuals outside of the EEA is only permitted where that country has adequate safeguards in place for the protection of personal data. Some types of processing may use cloud solutions which can mean information may sometimes be held on servers which are located outside of the EEA or may use processors who are based overseas.

Where we use cloud-based Service or third-party providers of such Service and in either or both circumstances the data is processed outside of the EEA if you are an EU based individual that will be regarded as an overseas transfer. Before instigating an overseas transfer, we will ensure that the recipient country and/or processor has security standards at least equivalent to EU standards and in particular one of the following permitted safeguards applies: –

  • The country in question is deemed to have adequate safeguards in place as determined by the European Commission; or
  • There is a contract or code of conduct in place which has been approved by the European Commission which gives your Personal Information the same protection it would have had if it was retained within the EEA; or
  • If the overseas transfer is to the United States, then the transferee is a signatory to the EU-US privacy Shield as all Privacy Shield signatories are obliged to give your Personal Information the same degree of protection it would have had if it was retained within the EEA.

If none of these safeguards exist, then we may seek your explicit consent for an overseas transfer. In line with your rights as an individual you are free to withdraw this consent at any time.


In certain instances, you have rights as an individual which you can exercise in relation to the information we hold about you. These rights are:

  • the right to restrict processing of your personal data;
  • the right to rectification or correction of your personal data;
  • the right to object to processing of your personal data;
  • the right of erasure of personal data (also referred to the right to be forgotten);
  • the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing or profiling;
  • the right to transfer your personal data (also referred to as the right of portability);
  • the right to withdraw your consent to processing your personal data; and
  • the right of access to your personal data.

Additional information about these rights can be found on the Information Commissioner’s website at

As described in Section 1 (B) above, for much of the Personal Information we collect and process about Contacts through the Service, we act as a processor on behalf of our Members. In such cases, if you are a Contact and want to exercise any data protection rights that may be available to you under applicable law or have questions or concerns about how your Personal Information is handled by us as a processor on behalf of our individual Members, you should contact the relevant Member that is using the Service, and refer to their separate privacy policies.
If you no longer want to be contacted by one of our Members through our Service, please contact the Member directly to update or delete your data.

We may ask you to verify your identity in order to help us respond efficiently to your request.


We try to be as open as we can in giving people access to their Personal Information. You can make a subject access request at any time about the Personal Information we process about you.

  • give you a description of it;
  • tell you why we are holding it;
  • tell you who it has or will be disclosed to;
  • the source of the information (if not you);
  • where possible, the period for which it will be stored; and
  • let you have a copy of the information in an intelligible form.

We will respond to a subject access request within 30 days. On occasion we may need additional information from you to determine your identity or help us find the information more quickly.
