This Policy explains what happens to any personal data that you provide, or that is collected from you as part of our usual business, marketing and/or accessing our Site.

We use your personal information to provide clients and third parties with quotes on our services and to ensure that we keep in touch with our client and contact base with targeted emails and marketing content.

Data protection principles

We will comply with data protection law. This says that the personal information we hold about you must be:

  1. Used lawfully, fairly and in a transparent way.
  2. Collected only for valid purposes that we have clearly explained to you and not used in any way that is incompatible with those purposes.

  4. Accurate and kept up to date.
  5. Kept only as long as necessary for the purposes we have told you about.

Information we collect

The majority of the data that we collect and store will be business data relating to the clients, suppliers and third parties we are dealing with. However, as part of our business and marketing processes we will be collecting and using limited personal data (‘Personal Data’) to include names, email addresses, addresses and mobile phone numbers (where applicable). If you contact us, we will keep a record of that correspondence.

We use your Personal Data to provide you with information, proposals and quotes regarding our business and the services that we offer. We may from time to time keep in touch with our contact base with targeted information-based emails. We are aware that clients and contacts will also be accessing our Site and that by accessing the Site, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this Policy.

While using our Site and undertaking business with the Company with the view to supplying or purchasing our expertise, we may ask you to provide us with certain personally identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify you.

How we use your information

We use your information to provide you with our business. We may also use your information in the following ways:

  • To provide you with information regarding our business, quotations and proposals.
  • To deal with our clients, suppliers and third parties.
  • To carry out our obligations arising from any contracts entered into between you and us as well as assisting us in negotiations prior to entering into a contract.
  • To provide you with billing information in relation to our business.
  • To notify you of news and changes to our business.
  • To manage the Site, detect fraud or Site abuses, send you information relevant to the Site and in case we have any queries.
  • To ensure that content from the Site is presented in the most effective manner for you.
  • To assist with any aspect of the Site (including, without limitation, providing customer support, preventing or investigating prohibited activity, enforcing our terms and conditions, and verifying information).
  • In a collective way not referable to any particular individual, for the purpose of quality control and improvement of the Site.

Where we store your Personal Data

  • All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers. We use industry standard security and firewalls on our servers.
  • We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards in connection with the collection, storage and disclosure of your information. Our security procedures mean that we may occasionally request proof of identity before we disclose personal information to you.
  • Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your Personal Data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to the Site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
  • Only authorised personnel and contractors have access to your information.
  • We will keep your information secure by taking appropriate technical and organisational measures against its unauthorised or unlawful processing and against its accidental loss, destruction or damage.

Lawful basis of Processing

We will generally process Personal Data regarding clients, suppliers, third parties and people that we provide our services to as we are under contract. The processing of such Personal Data is necessary for the contract or we have been asked to take specific steps before entering into a contract.

We may also process limited Personal Data of contacts for the purposes of the legitimate interests of the Company. We have a legitimate interest in keeping in touch with our clients and contacts which may include sending targeted emails regarding news about our business. We have balanced this legitimate interest of the Company against the rights of the individual and do not conclude this is unreasonable, as at all times the data subject has a right to be forgotten and their Personal Data to be deleted. As part of sending targeted marketing emails about our business we may seek consent from you and you have the right to withdraw such consent at any time.

Retention Periods

Clients: we need to keep your Personal Data to allow us to ensure compliance with the contract. We keep a record of client work for at least 6 years after the contract, although we have a legitimate business interest to keep details of client work for longer than this period in order to provide the best possible service to our clients. We will keep limited Personal Data of clients to include contact details and transactional history for longer than this 6 years period as many of our clients return to us and we need to retain such data to assist us provide this service.

Contractors: we will retain relevant Personal Data for a period of up to 7 years from the end of the tax year following the termination of a contractor agreement, in order to comply with our obligations to keep records for certain legal reasons.

Third parties: we will keep certain Personal Data on third parties to allow us to comply with our contractual obligations and provide our services for at least 6 years after a contract or project has finished. We will keep limited Personal Data of third parties for longer than this 6 year period, where relevant, as we may need to contact third parties or refer to projects where they were involved.

Recruitment: If you apply for a job with us, we may use your information for the purposes of recruitment and selection, corresponding with you and equal opportunities monitoring. We will not store your Personal Data for more than 12 months if you are not successful.

Where we are a Data Processor and not a Data Controller

There may be circumstances where we act as a data processor only and in such cases we will process data on the instructions of the client, as the data controller. It may be in such circumstances we process, in addition to the categories of Personal Data above, special categories of data and data relating to employment. In these circumstances all relevant safeguards will apply to such data and processing will only be used for the purposes it is collected for. However, most of the client work that we deal with will not involve Personal Data.

On-line contact

We collect information you give us when you register or use our Site, including asking us to contact you. We require only the information we need to provide a service to you, such as your name, address, telephone number and email address. Where we would like more information to help us improve our services, over and above the basic required information, it will be clear that your response is voluntary and you are free not to provide us with more information if you would prefer not to do so.
