When entering into a contract on behalf of your business
We also collect the following information:

We will only use your personal data when the law allows us to, in the following circumstances:

Where we need to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation
Where we have gained consent from you for marketing purposes
How we share and store your data
All personal data we collect and process is stored on our secure servers, PCs and connected devices.
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.
We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and the Information Commissioner’s Office of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
International data transfers and security
We will only transfer your data outside the EEA (including approved countries allowed within the data protection legislation) with your permission, unless it is required for legal purposes.
How long we hold your information
We will retain your personal data 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.
You can make a formal request for information we hold about you. We will provide you with a copy of this information and the reasons it is being processed.
In cases where we are processing your personal data on the basis of our legitimate interest, you can ask us to stop for reasons connected to your individual situation. We will then do so unless we believe we have a legitimate overriding reason to continue processing your personal data.
What happens if you don’t provide your information?
Where we need to collect personal data by law, or under the terms of a contract we have with the business you represent, and there is a failure to provide that data when requested, we may not be able to perform the contract.
