How we use your personal information

We take your privacy very seriously and unless required to do so by law, we will never disclose, share or sell your personal information without your consent. Where you have consented to us processing your personal information, you are free to withdraw consent at any time. 

We only use your personal information when the law allows us to. Most commonly, we will process the personal information about you that we collect, store and use for the following purposes:

  • to comply with any legal and regulatory obligations;
  • to respond to correspondence you send to us;
  • to fulfil the requests you make to us;
  • to manage and improve our business;
  • to manage our relationship with you;
  • to update and enhance our records; and
  • to inform you of updates to this Privacy Policy.

We use cookies to:

  • identify a unique session on the website;
  • ensure that this unique session is recognised when moving from page to page within the site;
  • ensure that any information entered is remembered;
  • indicate a logged in user;
  • customise a user’s view of the admin interface;
  • identify a user’s location;
  • check whether a user’s web browser is set to allow, or reject cookies; and
  • track activities for website security and spam protection.

You can set your devices to accept all cookies, notify you when a cookie is issued, or not receive cookies at any time. Please bear in mind that certain personalised features of our website may not be available to you without the use of cookies.

We will only use your personal information for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If we need to use your personal information for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.

Please note that we may process your personal information without your knowledge or consent, in compliance with the above rules, where this is required or permitted by law.

If you fail to provide personal information

You are not obligated to provide your personal information to us, however, as this information is required for us to be able to engage with you, we will not be able to do so without it.

Your Rights

By law you have the right to:

Request access to your personal information (commonly known as a "data subject access request"). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.

Request correction of the personal information that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.

Request erasure of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal information where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal information where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal information to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.

Object to processing of your personal information where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal information for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.

Request restriction of processing of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal information in the following scenarios: (a) if you want us to establish the accuracy of the data; (b) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (c) where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (d) you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.

Request the transfer of your personal information to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal information in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.

Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal information. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.

You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal information (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.

We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month, but occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.

If you want to review, verify, correct or request erasure of your personal information, object to the processing of your personal information, or request that we transfer a copy of your personal information to another party, please contact Reydon Toppin in writing.

Sharing and Disclosing Your Personal Information

We will not share or disclose your personal information without your consent, other than for the purposes specified in this Privacy Policy or where the law requires us to do so.

We sometimes need to share your personal information, for the purposes specified in this Privacy Policy, with third parties such as:

  • companies or other organisations that we have engaged to provide services on our behalf such as web-hosting companies, analytics providers and information technology providers.
  • companies or other organisation where you have asked us to or agreed that we may share your personal information with.
  • dealers and our partners where this is necessary to provide you with a product or service.
  • any law enforcement agency, court, regulator, government authority or third party where this is necessary to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation.

Where this is necessary, all processors acting on our behalf are required to respect the security of your personal information and to treat it in accordance with this privacy policy, the data protection laws and any other appropriate confidentiality and security measures. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal information for their own purposes and only permit them to process your personal information for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.

As a result of us disclosing your personal information to any of the parties mentioned above, your personal information may be held by us and additionally by the parties mentioned above.

Transferring your data outside of the European Economic Area (“EEA”)

We may transfer your personal information to recipients that may be outside the EEA and will be processed by these recipients outside the EEA.

Where your personal information is transferred to countries outside the EEA that do not generally offer the same level of data protection as in the EEA, any such transfer will comply with all applicable data protection laws and with our obligation to adequately protect and secure your personal information. We will take measures to ensure that personal information handled in other countries will receive at least the same level of protection as it is given in the EEA.

Safeguarding Measures

We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal information from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal information to those employees and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal information on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

How long will you use my personal information for?

We will only retain your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal information, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal information, the purposes for which we process your personal information and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

Lodging A Complaint

We only process your personal information in compliance with this privacy notice and in accordance with the relevant data protection laws.

You have the right to make a complaint at any time to the relevant Supervisory Authority in your country. We would, however, appreciate the chance to deal with your concerns before you approach your county’s Supervisory Authority so please contact us in the first instance if unsatisfied with how we have handled your information.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to update this Privacy Policy at anytime, and we will provide you with a new Privacy Policy when we make any substantial updates. We may also notify you in other ways from time to time about the processing of your personal information.

If you have any queries or comments about our privacy practices, please contact our data privacy manager at reydon.toppin@itcbgi.com.
