2. Legal basis for processing personal data

We need a legal basis to collect, use and disclose your personal data. Our legal basis for collecting, using and disclosing your data will depend on the data concerned and the context in which it is processed. However, we will normally process your data only where we need the data to perform a contract with you, it is in our legitimate interests to do so, or we have your consent to do so. In some cases, we may also have a legal obligation to process your data.

2.1 Data processing in the context of contacting us

If you contact us (e.g. by e-mail or telephone), your data is processed to carry out pre-contractual measures, fulfill our contract with you or because it is in our legitimate interests to do so.

2.2 General data processing in the context of our business relationship

If your data is processed to deal with business transactions and to process the sale of our Services, your data is processed to carry out pre-contractual measures, fulfill our contract with you or because it is in our legitimate interests to do so.

If we contact you to inform you about news from our company, offers and events and to promote our own range of Services, your data is processed either on the basis of your consent or because it is in our legitimate interests to do.

We process your data to ensure system security, manage the website technically, optimize service quality and analyze use of and improve our Services where it is in our legitimate interests to do. We do not rely on this lawful basis where our legitimate interests are overridden by your interest in protecting your data

2.5 Data processing to comply with our legal obligations

We may process your data because it is necessary to comply with our legal obligations, such as for tax, accounting and audit purposes.

3. Sharing your personal data

We may disclose your personal data to the following categories of recipients:

  • to our group companies, services providers and partners who provide data processing services to us (for example, to support the delivery of, provide functionality on, or help to enhance the security of our websites or provide analytics services to us) or who otherwise process data for purposes that are described in this privacy policy or notified to you when we collect your data.
  • to any competent law enforcement body, regulatory, government agency, court or other third party where we believe disclosure is necessary as a matter of applicable law or regulation, to exercise, establish or defend our legal rights, or to protect your vital interests or those of any other person.
  • to an actual or potential buyer (and its agents and advisers) in connection with any actual or proposed purchase, merger or acquisition of any part of our business, provided that we inform the buyer it must use your personal information only for the purposes disclosed in this privacy policy
  • to any other person with your consent to the disclosure.

4. How we transfer, store and protect your data

Your data will be stored and processed in Europe and any other country in which Operator, its affiliates or service providers maintain facilities.

This means that your data may be transferred to and processed in countries other than the country in which you are located. These countries may have data protection laws that are different to the laws of your country (and, in some cases, may not be as protective).

However, we've taken appropriate safeguards to require that your data will remain protected in accordance with this privacy policy and applicable data protection laws. These measures include transferring your data to a country that the European Commission or UK authorities (as applicable) have determined provides an adequate level of protection for personal data, or by implementing standard contractual clauses with our affiliates and service providers.

5. Rights in respect of your personal data

You have the right to access the data we process about you, obtain rectification of inaccurate data, request deletion of your data, restrict our processing of your data, request portability of your data, and/or object to unreasonable processing. If we process your data on the basis of your consent, you have the option to withdraw your consent at any time. Doing so will not affect the lawfulness of the processing we carried out based on your consent up to the time of withdrawal.

You can exercise any of these rights by contacting us using the contact details provided at the bottom of this page under the “How to contact us” heading. We respond to all requests we receive in accordance with applicable data protection laws.

You also have the right to opt-out of marketing communications we send you at any time. You can exercise this right by clicking on the “unsubscribe” or “opt-out” link in the marketing e-mails we send you or by contacting us using the contact details provided at the bottom of this page under the “How to contact us” heading.

E-mail: [email protected]

We do not engage in automated decision-making. If we process your personal data for a purpose other than the one for which we collected your data, we will inform you of this fact and of that other purpose.

6. How long we keep your personal data

We retain personal data we collect from you where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so (for example, to provide you with a service you have requested or to comply with applicable legal, tax or accounting requirements).

When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal data, we will either delete or anonymise it or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal data has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal data and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible. We may retain certain account information to comply with our legal obligations (such as for accounting and audit purposes).

7. Changes to this policy

We may update this policy from time to time to reflect our current practice and ensure compliance with applicable laws. When we post changes to this policy, we will revise the “Last Updated” date at the top of this policy. If we make any material changes to the way we collect, use, store and/or share your personal data, we will take appropriate measures to notify you. We recommend that you check this page from time to time to inform yourself of any changes.
