WHAT WE DO WITH THE INFORMATION WE GATHER By law we can only process your information if we can demonstrate the lawful grounds we have for doing so. Currently there are six potential lawful grounds for processing personal information, namely; • we have your consent; • it is necessary for performance of a contract to which you are a party or to take steps at your request prior to entering into such contract; • it is necessary for our compliance with a legal obligation; • it is in the public interest; • it is necessary to protect your vital interests; or • that it is in our legitimate interest to do so but only where that interest does not override your interests or your fundamental rights and freedom. If none of these grounds apply or ceases to apply we must cease processing your personal information immediately. Generally, we will rely on consent, contract, legal obligation or legitimate interest for processing. We therefore use your personal information in the following ways: • Registering you as a client, maintaining our relationship with you and processing and delivering services to you including recording payments. This will be done based on either contract or legal obligation. • Administration of our website and business and making suggestions that may be of interest to you such as available products and promotions or additional related services or products. • Ensuring that content from our website is relevant to you and is presented in the most effective manner for you. This includes seeking your views on our products and services, which is based on legitimate interest. 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, we are required to keep accounting records for 6 years after end of the year in which the last transaction occurred. This means that we will be required to keep some basic client details for that purpose although our relationship with you may be at an end. However, it should be noted that the requirement is basic client details and therefore it is not legitimate to also keep information such as your preferences for that period of time. If you have any questions relating to either retention periods, or require more detail on the purposes of processing the specific reason, or legal grounds we are relying on for that processing then please contact us for additional information.

OVERSEAS TRANSFERS 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 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 services or third-party providers of such services and in either or both circumstances the data is processed outside of the EEA 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 our own 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.
