Pages/accounts. We use your personal information when you post content or otherwise interact with us on our official pages and accounts on      Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, LinkedIn, YouTube, TikTok and other social media platforms.  We also use the Page Insights service for Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn to view statistical information and reports regarding your interactions with the pages and accounts we administer on those platforms and their content. Where those interactions are recorded and form part of the information we access through these Page Insights services, we and the relevant platform are joint data controllers of the processing necessary to provide that service to us.  Please see the beginning of this privacy policy for more information about our joint data controller arrangements.

Except in a limited number of cases, we do not transfer your personal information outside of Europe. Where we do, we take measures to protect your personal information.


Some of the information you provide to us may be transferred to countries outside the UK and European Economic Area (EEA), usually because some of our Suppliers are based outside of these areas. These countries may not have similar data protection laws to the UK these countries are listed in the table under Disclosure of your personal information by us. For example, we transfer your personal information to the USA when using our email marketing services provider, certain data analytics providers and some social media platforms.


Where we transfer your information outside of Europe in this way, we take steps to ensure that appropriate security measures are taken with the aim of ensuring that your privacy rights continue to be protected in the ways required by data protection law as outlined in this policy. These steps include imposing contractual obligations on the recipient of your personal information using standard clauses issued by the UK Information Commissioner’s Office (or other relevant body) and relying on decisions issued by the relevant UK Secretary of State (or other relevant person) declaring that a recipient or country is adequately protective of personal information to a degree that allows us to safely transfer your personal information to that recipient or country.  This includes any international frameworks that allow recipients to certify that they can receive your personal information safely and process it in a manner that is protected to an equivalent standard as that under UK laws. Please contact us using the details at the end of this policy for more information about the protections that we put in place and to obtain a copy or access to the relevant documents.


If you use our services whilst you are outside the UK, your information may be transferred outside the UK in order to receive those services.


We take the security of your personal information seriously and use a variety of measures based on good industry practice to keep it secure. Nonetheless, transmissions over the internet and to our Sites may not be completely secure, so please exercise caution. When accessing links to other websites, their privacy policies, not ours, will apply to your personal information.


We employ security measures to protect the personal information you provide to us, to prevent access by unauthorised persons and unlawful processing, accidental loss, destruction and damage. When we have provided (or you have chosen) a password or pin allowing you access to certain parts of our Sites, you are responsible for safeguarding it and keeping it confidential and must not allow it to be used by third parties.


Our Sites and social media pages may contain links to other websites run by other organisations which we do not control. This policy does not apply to those other websites‚ so we encourage you to read their privacy policies. We are not responsible for the privacy policies and practices of other websites (even if you access them using links that we provide) and we provide links to those websites solely for your information and convenience.  We specifically disclaim responsibility for their content, privacy practices and terms of use, and we make no endorsements, representations or promises about their accuracy, content or thoroughness. Your disclosure of personal information to third party websites is at your own risk.

In addition, if you linked to our Sites from a third party website, we cannot be responsible for the privacy policies and practices of the owners and operators of that third party website and recommend that you check the policy of that third party website.


We will not hold your personal information in an identifiable format for any longer than is necessary for the purposes for which we collected it.


Except where the circumstances below apply, we retain your personal information for 6 years from the end of the year in which your account closes. This is so we can comply with our legal and contractual obligations, establish, bring and defend legal claims and use your information for analytics and business planning purposes.

  • you exercise your right to require us to retain your personal information for a period longer than our stated retention period;


  • we bring or defend a legal claim or other proceedings during the period we retain your personal information, in which case we will retain your personal information until those proceedings have concluded and no further appeals are possible;


  • we archive your personal information, in which case we will delete it in accordance with our routine deletion cycle based on good industry practice; or
  • in limited cases, existing or future law or a court or regulator requires us to keep your personal information for a longer or shorter period, or we are reasonably requested to do so by law enforcement authorities.

You have a number of rights in relation to your personal information under data protection law. In relation to certain rights, we may ask you for information to verify your identity and, where applicable, to help us to search for your personal information. Except in rare cases, we will respond to you within 1 month after we have received this information or, where no such information is required, after we have received full details of your request.
