HOW WE USE YOUR PERSONAL DATA
We will only use your personal data when the law allows us to. Most commonly, we will use your personal data where it is necessary in order for us to perform our contract with you, or necessary for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party), and your interests, rights and freedoms do not override those interests, or where we need to in order to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation.
We will use your personal data in the following ways, on the legal bases that it is necessary for us to perform our contract with you and for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party), and that your interests, rights and freedoms do not override those interests:
- we will provide you with access to our service (including allowing you to create an account on our app) and the ability to register as a new service user, including allowing you to access all of the services we agree to provide to you;
dealing with your inquiries and requests;
- we will carry out any other obligations arising from the contract entered into between us and you, including providing you with customer support;
- we will administer and protect our business and our service including troubleshooting, data analysis and system testing;
providing and personalising our service;
- to take and process any payments, fees and charges;
carrying out market research campaigns;
- we may send you direct marketing communications in relation to similar products or services to those you have ordered where we think they may be of interest to you (provided that you have an absolute right to opt-out of any of these communications at any time, including at the time of providing us your personal data or at any time thereafter);
- we may send you emails as part of our mailing list or other direct marketing communications if you have provided your consent to us doing so (provided that you have an absolute right to opt-out of any of these communications at any time); and
- we will use your personal data to regularly update and rectify any personal data we hold in relation to you and to notify you of any changes to our service or any other services.
Generally we do not rely on consent as a legal basis for processing your personal data, provided that:
- if you sign up to our mailing list then you are providing consent to receive emails as part of our mailing list (which may include direct marketing); and
- we will obtain your consent before we send you any third party direct marketing communications via email or text message,
- and you have the right to withdraw any such consent at any time by contacting us.
In some circumstances we will anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes, in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you. We also gather information and statistics for the purposes of monitoring usage and may provide such aggregate information to third parties. These statistics will not include information that can be used to identify you.
If you stop using our service or your permission to use our service is terminated, we may continue to use and disclose your personal information in accordance with this Privacy Notice and as permitted by law.
DISCLOSURE OF YOUR INFORMATION
We may share your personal information with any member of our company, which means our subsidiaries, our ultimate holding company and its subsidiaries, as defined in section 1159 of the UK Companies Act 2006.
We may share your information with selected external third parties, including third party consultants, contractors or other service providers who may access your personal information when providing services to us (including but not limited to IT support or hosting providers, marketing service providers, app developers, auditors, contractors, payment providers and other advisers).
We may disclose your personal data:
- if we sell or buy any business or assets, in which case we may disclose your personal data to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets;

WHERE WE STORE YOUR PERSONAL DATA
The data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the UK or the European Economic Area (EEA). It may also be processed by staff operating outside the UK or the EEA, who work for us or for one of our suppliers. Such staff may be engaged in, among other things, the fulfilment of your orders, the delivery of our service, the processing of your payment details and the provision of support services.
If you are a UK citizen based in the UK or an EU citizen based in the EEA, then whenever we transfer your personal data out of the UK or the EEA (other than from the UK to the EEA or vice versa), we will only transfer your personal data:
- to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data;
- if an appropriate safeguard has been put in place; and/or
- if one of the exceptions under Article 49 of the GDPR applies.
We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In particular:
- we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know;
- all personal data is stored on secure servers; and
- payment transactions will be encrypted using SSL technology.
We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our service, and any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our service, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.
We adopt appropriate policies, rules and technical measures to protect the personal data that we have under our control (having regard to the type and amount of that data) from unauthorised access, improper use or disclosure, unauthorised modification, unlawful destruction or accidental loss. All of our employees and data processors that have access to, and are associated with, the processing of your personal information are obliged to respect the confidentiality of our visitors’ information.
HOW LONG WE KEEP YOUR PERSONAL DATA
We will retain your personal data in line with our data retention policy. We will only retain your personal data for as long as reasonably necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or reporting requirements. We may retain your personal data for a longer period in the event of a complaint or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation in respect to our relationship with you.
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or other requirements.
You have the right to ask us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes. You can exercise your right to prevent such processing at any time by checking certain boxes on the forms we use to collect your data. You can also exercise the right at any time by contacting us at email@example.com.
You have various statutory rights in relation to your personal data. In particular, you have the right to:
- object to direct marketing communications at any time;
- request and obtain access to your personal data;
- rectification or erasure of your personal data in certain circumstances;
- object to or restrict the processing of your personal data in certain circumstances;
- have your personal data stored in a manner in which it is portable from the environment in which it is stored by us to another environment; and
- file a complaint with the Information Commissioner’s Office.
