How we obtain and use your personal data
When you browse our website
We retain information about your computer or device, such as your IP address and browser type and your usage of our website and emails from us, as a legitimate interest for reasons of systems security and performance. We will anonymise or pseudonymise this data when being used for analytics purposes when appropriate.
We will contact you for direct marketing purposes, as our legitimate interest for business development, where you have requested further information about our services, where we have received contact details as a corporate subscriber and believe our services are relevant to your company, where you have started negotiations or entered into a contract with us and haven’t opted-out (“soft opt-in”) or where you have provided consent for marketing. We use third party data providers to obtain business contact details for marketing purposes as well as information collected by our sales agents and information provided directly by customers and prospects.
You have the right to opt out of marketing at any time, which can be done by selecting unsubscribe from our emails or messages to you, or using the details provided above.
Buying or using our products and services
We will process personal data that is necessary to enter into a contract and to provide our contractually agreed services to you or your business. Where that contract is agreed directly with you, our processing will be on the basis of being necessary for that contract. Where the contract is with your business, our processing of your personal data will be on the basis of legitimate business interest, so that we can provide the services to your business.
We will process and share your personal data with suppliers involved in the management of your products and services, under contractual agreement or where necessary under law.
Processing of your data is necessary to meet, or prepare, a contract for our products and services. If adequate company and personal data is not provided or you object to the processing of your data we may not be able to provide the products and service to you and accept you as a customer.
This will also apply where you buy products and services through business partners who sell on our behalf, who operate as independent data controllers in their own right and whose own privacy notice will apply to their processing of your data and personal data acquired from organisations which we have acquired where you were previously a customer.
We ask that you do not provide us with special categories of data under GDPR, unless necessary for us to make reasonable adjustments for you for reasons of mental or physical health. We will process that data as a legal obligation under The Equality Act and to support you with equality of opportunity and treatment.
We will use your personal data to appropriately respond to your general queries or complaints as is necessary to manage your contract. Phone calls will be recorded for quality assurance and training purposes, as our legitimate business interest.
We will process your personal data to improve our processes, through analysis of communications such as call recording and improve the products and services we offer, including the use of surveys, as a legitimate business interest.
We will process data about you when you sign up for our products and services to carry out credit checks using your data and data available on Companies House and public sources as our legitimate business interest to mitigate any risk.
We may also carry out further credit checks on ‘high usage’ and ‘high risk’ customers during the course of the contract using a Credit Reference Agency, as our legitimate interest to mitigate on-going risk, to assess credit worthiness and for fraud prevention. This means that your credit records will be searched, along with those of anyone who is financially associated with you such as your spouse or partner. The Credit Reference Agency will keep a record of this search and place a “footprint” on your credit file and collect and maintain information about consumers’ and businesses’ credit behaviour. This includes data sourced from the Electoral Register, fraud prevention, and credit information – including details of previous applications and the conduct of your accounts – and public information such as County Court Judgements, decrees, and bankruptcies.
The Credit Reference Agency, which operates as an independent data controller and whose own privacy notices apply, that we use is CreditSafe and Experian.
Compliance with legal and regulatory requirements
We will process data where we are under a legal or regulatory requirement to do so, including sharing of data with third parties. This can include regulators (Ofcom, Information Commissioner Officer, and Financial Conduct Authority), courts or law enforcement agencies.
How long we store your personal data for
Our policy is to only retain your personal data for as long as necessary. The retention period will vary depending on the purpose of processing, the products and services, the type of personal data, your relationship with us and any legal or regulatory requirement we may have.
