Do we transfer/handle your data outside of the EEA?
The European Economic Area or “EEA” is seen as having good standards when it comes to data privacy. As such, we limit the occasions when we may need to transfer or handle your data outside of the EEA. Where we do (for example where our service providers are based outside of the EEA), we make sure that your data is still treated fairly and lawfully in all respects (including making sure we have a legal ground for the transfer and putting in place all necessary safeguards for such arrangement).
Where relevant, you will have the right to see a copy of any safeguards we put in place for international transfers of your data. Just contact us if you would like to find out more.

We may disclose your personal information to the following types of third parties:
- our external consultants who assist with the development and delivery of our products and services;
- analytics and search engine providers that assist us in the improvement and optimisation of our website and products;
- companies who assist with our marketing, customer surveys and feedback tools; and
- third parties who help us detect fraud or criminal activity.
We may also need to disclose your personal information in the following circumstances:
- if we are required to do so by law or pursuant to a binding regulatory request (in each case, such disclosure will be solely to the extent required by law or the applicable regulatory request);
- in the event that we sell or buy any business or assets we may be required to disclose certain of your personal data to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets; or
If we want to share your personal data with third parties for the purpose of them marketing their own products and services to you, we will always get your consent before doing so. You always have the right to opt-out of third party marketing at any time by contacting us or using the unsubscribe function in the relevant email.
Keeping your data secure
We have implemented industry standard security measures to prevent unauthorised access to, use or loss of, your data. We also make sure that third parties who need to handle your data when helping us to deliver our services are bound by appropriate confidentiality and security obligations.
Despite the security measures that we implement, please be aware that the transmission of data via the internet is not 100% secure. Therefore, we are unable to guarantee the security of any information which you transmit to us via the internet and any transmission is at your own risk.
Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our website or products, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.
How long will we keep your data?
We will keep your data for as long as required in connection with the original purpose for which that data was collected (e.g. for as long as you hold an account with us and/or where you are still happy to hear from us about our latest news, products and services).
Once you no longer wish to be engaged with us we may still need to keep hold of your data if there is a legal reason for doing so (e.g. for tax purposes or where we are resolving a dispute with you), but we will only retain the data which is strictly necessary for such reason and thereafter, will remove this data from our systems.
Third party sites
This policy only applies to our website and our products. If you leave our website via a link or otherwise, you will be subject to the policy of that website provider. We have no control over third party policies or the terms of the relevant third party website and you should therefore check their policy before continuing to access the site.
You have various rights under GDPR which entitle you, in certain circumstances, to:
- ask us for a copy of the personal data we hold about you;
- correct or update your personal data, which you can do yourself by logging into your account (if relevant) or if you would prefer, please contact us and we can assist;
- request that we delete your personal data;
- object to the handling of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (as set out in the above table);
- restrict the processing of your personal data;
- request the transfer of your personal data (or some of it) to a third party service provider; or
- where you have provided your consent for something, in certain circumstances, you may withdraw this consent (but note that we may continue to use your personal data if we have legal grounds for doing so).
Please contact us if you would like to exercise your rights, which you can do for free. The only time we may charge a reasonable fee is where your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances. Otherwise, we will always respond within one month (unless there is a legal reason for us to take longer).
If it is not clear to us who is making the request, we may ask you to confirm your identity before we proceed.
You may also contact the ICO (Information Commissioner’s Office) if you have any concerns about the way we are handling your personal data. However, where possible, please speak to us first as we would appreciate the opportunity to help with your concern.
