We hold and use your personal data for the purposes of providing access to our website, information about our services, responding to your enquiries, and for sending you related communications. Data protection law requires us to have a legal ground for each use of personal data. Most commonly, we rely on the following legal grounds when we process your personal data.
• Where it is necessary for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) and your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests. For example, for provision of administration and IT services, network security, running our business and this website (including troubleshooting, data analysis, testing, system maintenance, support, reporting and hosting of data). It is also necessary to deliver relevant website content and advertisements to you and measure or understand the effectiveness of the advertising we serve to you and to respond to queries made through the website.
• Where you have given us consent, which means that you have given us clear consent for us to process your data for a specific purpose, for example to send you marketing material when you have signed up for a newsletter. You have the right to withdraw consent to marketing at any time by contacting us. You can ask us to stop sending you marketing messages at any time by following the opt-out links on any marketing message sent to you or by contacting us at any time.
• Where we need to comply with a legal obligation, which means processing your personal data where it is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation that we are subject to.
We do not make or send unsolicited direct marketing communications (by telephone, email, SMS, post or other method) to any individuals without obtaining any required consents and giving such individuals the right to opt-out or object. Consents must be specific, informed and freely given. Marketing communications may include communications which promote our services, related events or training courses, or any other party’s goods or services.
We will assess our obligations to obtain consent or provide an option to refuse marketing at the time an individual’s contact details are collected. All marketing communications will contain details of how to opt out of future marketing.
