We may process your personal information without your knowledge or consent where this is required or permitted by law.

Data sharing

We may have to share your data with third parties, including third-party service providers where required by law, where it is necessary to administer the working relationship with you or where we have another legitimate interest in doing so.

We require third parties to respect the security of your data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We may transfer your personal information outside the UK or the EU. If we do, you can expect a similar degree of protection in respect of your personal information.

How secure is my information with third-party service providers?

All our third-party service providers are required to take appropriate security measures to protect your personal information in line with our policies. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes. We only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.

Third parties related to corporate transactions or regulatory and legal requirements

We may share your personal information with third parties in the context of the possible sale or restructuring of the business.

We will transfer personal information we collect about you to our group companies and servers/hosting partners located in the UK, EU and USA.

This means that the USA is not deemed by the UK and EU GDPR to provide an adequate level of protection for your personal information (except in limited circumstances) unless specific safeguards are put in place.

To ensure that your personal information does receive an adequate level of protection, we have put in place a data protection agreement which includes EU GDPR model clauses as well as provisions UK International Data Transfer Agreement provisions governing the transfer of data between our corporate entities and we are only entering service agreements for hosting or other services with Supplier Parties outside the UK and EU where EU model clauses or an IDTA forms part of the contract.

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