I want to protect your privacy and confidentiality. I understand that all users of my web site are quite rightly concerned to know that their data is being used lawfully. I take my responsibility under the Data Protection legislation, including GDPR, very seriously and I want to comply with the spirit and the letter of the guidance provided by the Data Protection Office.
I regret that if there are one or more points below with which you are not happy, your only recourse is to leave my web site immediately.
I do not share, or sell, or disclose to a third party, any personally identifiable information collected on this site.
The law requires me to determine how I process different categories of your personal information, and to notify you of the basis for each category.
If a basis on which I process your personal information is no longer relevant, then I shall immediately stop processing your data.
1. Information I process because I have a contractual obligation with you.
When you buy a service from me, or otherwise agree to our terms and conditions, a contract is formed between you and me.
In order to carry out my obligations under that contract I must process the information you give me. Some of this information may be personal information.
We may use it in order to:
- To provide you with our services
- To provide you with suggestions and advice on my services.
We process this information on the basis there is a contract between us, or that you have requested we use the information before we enter into a contract. We shall continue to process this information until the contract between us ends or is terminated by either party under the terms of the contract.
- Information we process with your Consent.
Where there is no contractual relationship between us, such as when you browse my website or ask me to provide you with more information about my services, you provide your consent to me to process information that may be personal information.
Sometimes you might give your consent implicitly, such as when you send me a message by e-mail to which you would reasonably expect me to reply.
Except where you have consented to my use of your information for a specific purpose, I do not use your information in any way that would identify you personally.
I continue to process your information on this basis until you withdraw your consent, or it can be reasonably assumed that your consent no longer exists.
You may withdraw your consent at any time by instructing me at email@example.com
3. Information we process because we have a legal obligation.
I am subject to the law like everyone else. Sometimes, I must process your information in order to comply with a statutory obligation. This can include your personal information.
