It sets out the conditions under which we may process any information that we collect from you, or that you provide to us. It covers information that could identify you (“personal information”) and information that could not. In the context of the law and this notice, “process” means collect, store, transfer, use or otherwise act on information.
- We regret that if there are one or more points below with which you are not happy, your only recourse is to leave our website immediately.
- We take seriously the protection of your privacy and confidentiality. We understand that all visitors to our website are entitled to know that their personal data will not be used for any purpose unintended by them, and will not accidentally fall into the hands of a third party.
- We undertake to preserve the confidentiality of all information you provide to us and hope that you reciprocate.
- Our policy complies with UK law accordingly implemented, including that required by the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
- The law requires us to tell you about your rights and our obligations to you in regards to the processing and control of your personal data. We do this now, by requesting that you read the information provided at www.knowyourprivacyrights.org
- Except as set out below, we do not share, or sell, or disclose to a third party, any information collected through our website.
The basis on which I process information about you
The law requires us to determine under which of six defined bases we process different categories of your personal information and to notify you of the basis for each category.
If a basis on which we process your personal information is no longer relevant then we shall immediately stop processing your data.
If the basis changes then if required by law we shall notify you of the change and of any new basis under which we have determined that we can continue to process your information.
1. Information I process because I have a contractual obligation with you
When you create an account on our website, buy a product or service from us, or otherwise agree to our terms and conditions, a contract is formed between you and me.
In order to carry out our obligations under that contract, I must process the information you give us. Some of this information may be personal information.
I may use it in order to:
1.1. verify your identity for security purposes
1.2. email my newsletter to you
1.3. sell products to you
1.4. provide you with our services
1.5. provide you with suggestions and advice on products, services and how to obtain the most from using our website
I process this information on the basis there is a contract between us, or that you have requested we use the information before we enter into a legal contract.
Additionally, I may aggregate this information in a general way and use it to provide class information, for example, to monitor my performance with respect to a particular service I may provide. If I use it for this purpose, you as an individual will not be personally identifiable.
I shall continue to process this information until the contract between us ends or is terminated by either party under the terms of the contract.
2. Information I process with your consent
Through certain actions when otherwise there is no contractual relationship between us, such as when you browse our website or ask us to provide you more information about my business, or products, you provide your consent to me to process information that may be personal information.
Sometimes you might give your consent implicitly, such as when you send us a message by e-mail to which you would reasonably expect us to reply.
Except where you have consented to our use of your information for a specific purpose, I do not use your information in any way that would identify you personally. I may aggregate it in a general way and use it to provide class information, for example to monitor the performance of a particular page on our website.
I will continue to process your information on this basis until you withdraw your consent or it can be reasonably assumed that your consent no longer exists.
You may withdraw your consent at any time by instructing me via the unsubscribe button on my email correspondence to you, or at my email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. However, if you do so, you will no longer receive update newsletters from me.
3. Information I process because I have a legal obligation
I am subject to the law like everyone else. Sometimes, I must process your information in order to comply with a statutory obligation.
For example, I may be required to give information to legal authorities if they so request or if they have the proper authorisation such as a search warrant or court order.
This may include your personal information.
4. Complaints regarding content on my website
My website is a publishing medium. Anyone may register and then publish information about himself, herself or some other person.
If you complain about any of the content on our website, I shall investigate your complaint.
If I feel it is justified or if I believe the law requires us to do so, I shall remove the content while I investigate.
Free speech is a fundamental right, so I have to make a judgment as to whose right will be obstructed: yours, or that of the person who posted the content that offends you.
If I think your complaint is vexatious or without any basis, I shall not correspond with you about it.
5. Sending a message via contact form
When you contact me, whether by website or by e-mail, I collect the data you have given to me in order to reply with the information you need.
I do not keep any personally identifiable information associated with your message, such as your name or email address.
