The GDPR and UK GDPR establishes uniform data protection laws across the European Union (EU) and United Kingdom (UK) and aims to protect the privacy and use of EU and UK residents’ personal data in an increasingly digital world. Please see our GDPR Privacy Statement that follows, which sets out how we comply with these obligations to protect the data of customers who reside in the EU and the UK.


This Privacy Statement only applies to the collection and processing of any personal data, personally identifiable information or personal information of an individual who is located in the European Union (EU) (whether the individual is a citizen of an EU country or otherwise) or the United Kingdom (UK) (together, EU/UK personal data). This Privacy Statement will apply to you and the processing of your EU/UK personal data if you are located in the EU or the UK. This Privacy Statement does not apply with respect to your personal information if you are located outside of the EU or the UK, even though you may be a citizen of an EU country or the UK.

For the purposes of this Privacy Statement, the term ‘process’ has the same meaning given to it under the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (GDPR) and the equivalent laws of the UK (UK GDPR) and may include any operation or a series of operations performed on EU/UK personal data, including collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure, by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.

EU/UK personal data that is collected by us may have been sourced directly from you, a third party or implied from your use of our products or services. We will process EU/UK personal data in accordance with this Privacy Statement and our Privacy Policy . To the extent of any inconsistencies between other sections of our Privacy Policy and this Privacy Statement in relation to the processing of EU/UK personal data, this Privacy Statement prevails.

This Privacy Statement was drafted with brevity and clarity in mind. It does not provide exhaustive detail of all aspects of our collection and use of EU/UK personal data. However, we are happy to provide any additional information or explanation needed. For further information, please contact us through the ‘Contact details’at paragraph 16 of our Privacy policy.

GDPR and UK GDPR Principles

Any EU/UK personal data will be:

(a) processed lawfully, transparently and in a fair manner;

(b) collected only for the purposes identified in this Privacy Policy or any other agreed specified purposes and not further processed in a manner incompatible with those purposes;

(c) collected in an adequate and relevant manner and limited to what is necessary in relation to the purposes for which the EU/UK personal data is processed;

(d) kept current and up-to-date in accordance with our Privacy Policy;

(e) stored in a form which permits us to identify you, but only for the period necessary in relation to the relevant purposes identified in our Privacy Policy; and

(f) stored and processed securely to protect EU/UK personal data against unlawful or unauthorised access and accidental loss, damage or disclosure in accordance with our Privacy Policy.

Lawful basis for processing

We will only collect and process EU/UK personal data where we have a lawful basis for doing so. This may include where:

(a) you have given consent;

(b) the processing of EU/UK personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract with you (such as to deliver the services you have requested or that have been requested on your behalf); and

(c) the processing of EU/UK personal data is necessary for the purposes of our ‘legitimate interests’ and those of a related company of ours, provided that such processing does not outweigh your rights or freedoms.

Where we rely on your consent to process EU/UK personal data, you have the right to withdraw, restrict or decline your consent at any time and where we rely on legitimate interests, you have the right to object. If you have any questions about the lawful bases upon which we collect and process EU/UK personal data you should contact us.

We do not use automatic decision making, such as profiling, to make a decision that may produce a legal effect concerning a data subject of EU/UK personal data.

Rights of EU/UK personal data subjects

In addition to other rights you may have as set out in this Privacy Policy, you may exercise the data protection rights set out below in relation to your EU/UK personal data:

(a) Access and Portability: a request can be made by you for a copy of your EU/UK personal data (and any other information relating to your EU/UK personal data permitted under Article 15 of the GDPR or the UK GDPR) held by us in accordance with the ‘Your Rights’ section of our Privacy Policy. In addition, you may request to be provided with EU/UK personal data in a structured, commonly used and machine readable format (including for the purposes of transferring to another party).

(b) Restrictions and Objections: You may request that we limit our use of your EU/UK personal data or processing by requesting that we no longer use your EU/UK personal data or limit how we use your EU/UK personal data, this may include where you believe it is not lawful for us to hold your EU/UK personal data or instances where your EU/UK personal data was provided for direct marketing purposes and you no longer want us to contact you. We will do so, if we are:

(i) relying on our own or someone else’s legitimate interests to process your EU/UK personal data, except if we can demonstrate compelling legal grounds for the processing; or

(ii) processing your EU/UK personal data for direct marketing.

Our responsibilities as a ‘data controller’ and ‘data processor’

We may act as the ‘data controller’, the ‘data processor’ or in some instances both the data collector and data processor simultaneously in relation to EU/UK personal data.

To the extent that we are a data controller with respect to EU/UK personal data, we:

(e) implement appropriate technical and organisational security measures to protect EU/UK personal data and report any data breaches to authorities and affected individuals as required by the GDPR or UK GDPR in accordance with our Privacy Policy.

(a) only act on the controller’s documented instructions;

(b) impose confidentiality obligations on all personnel who process the EU/UK personal data;

(c) not appoint sub-processors without the prior written consent of the controller;

Disclosure to third parties

In the event we are responsible for a transfer of EU/UK personal data outside of the EU or UK, such transfer will be for the necessary and lawful performance of our services, including the establishment, exercise or defence of a legal right.

Express consent to transfer
