Using Your Information
We have to tell you what our lawful basis is for processing your data, so we are letting you know the reference to the GDPR after each section.
We use log files from our servers to assist in our firm”s security, as well as to determine visitor behaviour and help us plan our strategy (e.g. such as working out which pages on the site are most popular, or whether particular events have caused an increase in traffic).
The basis for processing this is that we have legal and regulatory obligations to protect our supplier and their information. When used for strategy planning, we do this under legitimate interest.
Transfers of your data
We only transfer data outside of the EEA if it is to a country or organisation that is deemed by the EU to have adequate protection of data. For example, our cloud data providers in the US are all signed up to the Privacy Shield – https://www.privacyshield.gov/list . Data may be required to be shared with governing regulatory bodies when we have a legal obligation to do so.
As a general principle, we will not transfer your personal data to third parties without your permission but we do have a small number of companies providing services to us. These are our processors and we have confirmed that they all meet the requirements of the GDPR.
When we process your data you have rights as a data subject. The relevant rights are:
- Request a copy of your personal data and information about our processing of it
- Request that we delete information on you if we do not need to hold it
If you want to exercise any of these rights, please just contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
