Data handling

Where we have obtained any data in the manner defined under the aforementioned Data collecting heading and/or have sourced information capable of personally identifying you using our own research practices and in any case have used this data to communicate with you via any medium, we will have and will employ the following strict principles with regards to how we handle this data.


  • Principle of legitimate interest (PLI): We may send email messages to you to enquire if you have an interest in a service or product that directly relates and is appropriate to you or the operations of your business or other similar entity of which you are the proprietor.


  • Principle of accessibility: You may at any time and by any means request from us any personal data that we hold pertaining to you. Such requests may take up to 28 calendar days to process; this time frame is solely dependent on the multitudinous of the data held.  An access charge may apply where your request is clearly repetitive, unfounded or excessive; this charge and the circumstances surrounding it will be communicated promptly to you.
  • Principle of objection: Where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party listed under the Where your data is stored heading) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms
  • Principle of erasure: This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see above), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.
  • Principle of withdrawal: You may withdraw your 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 provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.


  • Principle of transfer: You may request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party: We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.


  • Principle of correction: You may request correction of your personal data: This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.



What we may need from you

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
