1. Data we collect
As a data controller we collect a variety of data in order to deliver our services. We use a service called PORT to ensure that we collect and manage your personal data transparently, fairly and securely. Whenever we collect Personal Information from you, we let you know and you will be able to access the following precise information:

– data we have collected from you
– the basis on which we are holding it (e.g. because you gave us consent)
– what we will do with it
– how long we will hold it for
– where it is stored
– who it might be shared with
– your rights in relation to the data, and
– information on how you can access and manage this data.
We have provided further detail below about the specific types of data we collect and our reasons for doing so.

1.1. What data do we ask you to provide to us, and why?

1.2. What data do we collect when you visit our website, and why?

3. Why do we share data outside of the EU
We may transfer personal data to a country outside of the European Economic Area (EEA), for example if a third party we share data with has servers located outside of the EEA. If this is the case we will obtain your consent or otherwise ensure that the transfer is legal and your data is secure by following the EU’s guidelines.

You can see above where we send data outside of the EEA and on what basis we do so.

4. How do we keep your personal data secure?
We keep your data secure:

– by following internal policies of best practice and training for staff
– by using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology when information is submitted to us online
In the unlikely event of a criminal breach of our security we will inform the relevant regulatory body within 72 hours and, if your personal data were involved in the breach, we shall also inform you.

5. Changes to our privacy policy and control
We may change this privacy policy from time to time. When we do, we will let you know by changing the date on this policy, adding notices to our website or mobile app. By continuing to access or use our services after those changes become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised privacy policy.
