4. Legal basis for data processing
We can process personal data on various legal bases.
For processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose, Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR is our legal basis.
If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party, as for example when processing operations necessary to provide our service, the processing is based on Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiries concerning our products or services.
If our company is subject to a legal obligation by which processing of personal data is required, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, our processing is based on Article 6(1)(c) of the GDPR.
Finally, we can base our processing operations on Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR: this legal basis is used for processing operations which are not covered by the abovementioned legal grounds, if processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data.
5. Security of your information
We protect your data by:
Offering you a secure transmission method to send us personal or company information.
Implementing security policies and technical measures to protect data from:
- unauthorised access;
- improper use or disclosure;
- unauthorised modification; and
- unlawful destruction or accidental loss.
However, unfortunately, because of the nature of electronic storage, ┬áwe cannot promise that your personal data or any other data you provide to us will always remain secure. ┬á If there is a security breach, we will do all that we can as soon as we can to stop the breach and minimise the loss of any data.
If you discover a vulnerability, we would like to know about it so we can take steps to address it as quickly as possible. We would like to ask you to help us better protect our clients and our systems.
Please do the following:
- E-mail your findings to email@example.com. Encrypt your findings using our PGP key to prevent this critical information from falling into the wrong hands,
- Do not take advantage of the vulnerability or problem you have discovered, for example by downloading more data than necessary to demonstrate the vulnerability or deleting or modifying other peopleÔÇÖs data,
- Do not reveal the problem to others until it has been resolved,
- Do not use attacks on physical security, social engineering, distributed denial of service, spam or applications of third parties, and
- Do provide sufficient information to reproduce the problem, so we will be able to resolve it as quickly as possible. Usually, the IP address or the URL of the affected system and a description of the vulnerability will be sufficient, but complex vulnerabilities may require further explanation.
What we promise
- We will respond to your report within 3 business days with our evaluation of the report and an expected resolution date,
- If you have followed the instructions above, we will not take any legal action against you in regard to the report,
- We will handle your report with strict confidentiality, and not pass on your personal details to third parties without your permission,
- We will keep you informed of the progress towards resolving the problem,
- In the public information concerning the problem reported, we will give your name as the discoverer of the problem (unless you desire otherwise).
We strive to resolve all problems as quickly as possible, and we would like to play an active role in the ultimate publication on the problem after it is resolved.
We may send you marketing email messages from us about our website and our services. ┬áThis could be because you have consented to receive such messages, or because to do so is in our legitimate interests and for example, you have request to attend an event, or because you are our customer. You can choose to no longer receive marketing emails from us by contacting us or clicking unsubscribe from a marketing email. ┬áPlease note that it may take us a few days to update our records to reflect your request.
If you ask us to remove you from our marketing list, we shall keep a record of your name and email address to ensure that we do not send to you marketing information.
7. Profiling or other automated individual decision making
Automated individual decision making refers to a decision made solely on the basis of automated processing of your personal data, without human involvement. For instance, this means processing using an algorithm or a software code. Profiling is defined as automated processing of personal data to evaluate certain things about an individual: profiling can be part of an automated decision-making process.
We may conduct automated decision making or profiling to better understand your centre of interests and preferences and adapt our communications to your profile. However, we want you to know that you have certain rights in respect of automated decision making and profiling, where that decision produces a legal effect on you. Please see below the section on ÔÇťYour rights under the GDPRÔÇŁ for more information about your rights.
8. Retention of your information
We take appropriate measures to ensure that any information collected from you is kept only for so long as is necessary for the purpose for which such information is used.
We normally update your personal data within seven (7) working days of any new or updated personal data being provided to us, to ensure that the personal data we hold We may also be required to retain personal data for a particular period of time to comply with legal, auditory or statutory requirements, including requirements of HMRC in respect of financial documents and in order to deal with any dispute you might raise. ┬áTo determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the type of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of the ┬ápersonal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means.
Where we have no legal basis for continuing to process your personal data, we shall either delete or anonymise it or, if this is not possible (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.
For the avoidance of doubt, we may use Aggregated Data and Usage Data ┬áfor research or statistical purposes indefinitely without further notice to you.
9. Disclosure of your information
For our legitimate interests, We may disclose your personal information to any member of our group, which means our subsidiaries, our ultimate holding company and its subsidiaries as defined in Section 1159 of the UK Companies Act 2006.
Again, for our legitimate interests, we may disclose your personal information to third parties:
(a) In the event that 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.
(b) If we or substantially all of our assets are acquired by a third party, in which case personal data held about our customers will be one of the transferred assets.
(c) If we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal data to comply with any legal obligation.
(d) To enforce or apply our Terms and Conditions and other agreements.
(e) If it is required to do so to deliver our services. We sometimes outsource certain functions of our business to service providers: some of these service providers may use cloud-based systems: in that case, your personal data would be hosted on their servers, but under our direction and control.
f) Where we have received your permission for us to do so.
10. Transfers outside the United Kingdom
We will only transfer your personal data to countries which are considered as providing an adequate level of legal protection or where alternative arrangements are in place to protect your rights.

We may use remote website server hosts to provide and maintain some aspects of our service and website, which may be based outside the UK (in ÔÇťthe cloudÔÇŁ). ┬á Where your personal data is transferred outside the United Kingdom, it will only be transferred to countries that have been identified as providing adequate protection for personal data or to a third party where we have approved transfer mechanisms in place to You have the right to ask for more information about the safeguards we have put in place as mentioned above.
