Lawful reasons for processing

Under this we can process your information if we have a genuine and legitimate business reason and we are not harming any of your rights and interests.
Once you enter into a contract with us our lawful reason becomes “contractual obligation”. This also includes steps taken at your request before entering into a contract.

We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure and protected against unauthorised or unlawful processing, accidental loss, destruction and damage. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, technical and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect.
Personal data stored in digital format is stored securely.
Despite all the controls we have put in place to address all the key GDPR principles, there is still always a risk a data breach may happen.
Our work for you may occasionally require us to pass your information to our service providers and for the purpose of delivering our services to you.
Where we are entering into an engagement with a third party, we will seek to be satisfied that they have secure measures in place so your privacy rights continue to be protected as outlined in this policy.
We only disclose information that is necessary to deliver our services and we never allow your personal data to be used by any third party for any market research, marketing or other commercial purposes.
Under GDPR law, we may be required to disclose your data for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject, or in order to protect your vital interests or the vital interests of another natural person. We may also be required to disclose your personal data where such disclosure is necessary for the establishment or defence of legal claims, whether in court proceedings or in an administrative or out-of-court procedure.
In the unlikely event of this, the breach will be notified to all data subjects affected without undue delay. If appropriate, this will also be reported to the ICO within 72 hours of us becoming aware. The person who should be informed of any breaches is named at the bottom of this policy and is contactable by email at all times.
