This privacy statement applies to everyone about whom we hold personal data who is not deemed current (or former) staff, agent or contractor or someone who has applied for a job with us.

  • where it is necessary for the legitimate interests of our business in conducting and managing our business to enable us to give you the best service and the best and most secure experience (or those of a third party) and your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests;

We do not control these third-party websites and are not responsible for their privacy statements. When you leave our website, we encourage you to read the privacy policy of every website you visit.

Sharing Your Personal Data

Your personal data will only be shared with:

  • our staff (including external consultants), professional advisers and agents;

International Transfers


We may transfer the personal data we collect from you to parties based outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”) which may include countries which do not provide the same level of protection as the laws enjoyed within the EEA. We will ensure that any such international transfers are made subject to appropriate or suitable safeguards as required by the General Data Protection Regulation or other relevant laws. This includes entering into the European Commission: Model contracts for the transfer of personal data to third countries and where we use providers based in the US, we may transfer data to them if they are part of the Privacy Shield which requires them to provide similar protection to personal data shared between Europe and the US. For further details, see European Commission: EU-US Privacy Shield.  We will be happy to provide you with the relevant, detailed information on request.

Data Security


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. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to staff, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.


Data Retention


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


Rights of Access, Correction, Erasure and Restriction


You are entitled, by law to the following rights:

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

  • Request correction of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected;

  • Request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it;

  • Object to processing of your personal data 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;

  • Request restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data, for example if you want us to establish the data's accuracy;

  • Request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party; and

  • Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. 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 process that personal information unless we have another legitimate basis for doing so.  An email is sufficient.


If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please contact us.


You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive.


Are You Required to Provide Personal Data?


In principle, you are under no obligation to provide us with personal data. However, if you do not provide us with personal data, we cannot respond to enquiries that you send to us.
