Why the company needs to process personal data.

In order to provide the best experience to its website users, the company needs to process personal data about individuals as part of its operation.

Some of this activity the company will need to carry out in order to fulfil its legal rights, duties or obligations. Other uses of personal data will be made in accordance with the company’s legitimate interests.

The company expects that the following uses will fall within that category of its “legitimate interests”:

This will include by way of example: 

·     Names

·     Addresses (Postal & Email)

Who has access to the Personal Data and who is it shared with. 

Occasionally, the company will need to share personal information relating to its community with third parties, such as:

·      Website Developers

·      Third Party Analytics Companies

For the most part, personal data collected by the company will remain within the Head Office, and will be processed by appropriate individuals only in accordance with access protocols.

In accordance with Data Protection Law, some of the company’s processing activity is carried out on its behalf by third parties, such as IT systems, web developers or cloud storage providers. This is always subject to contractual assurances that personal data will be kept securely and only in accordance with the company’s specific directions.

How long we keep Personal Data.

The company will only keep records for as long as needs to do so.
