  • ensuring the security of information systems; and

Who do we share your data with?

8. The recipients or categories of recipients of your personal data may include:

  • our third party suppliers who help us maintain the Website and run our business e.g. our hosting provider, website developers, marketing agencies and our IT support team;
  • our professional advisors e.g. accountants;
  • other companies within the Chelsfield Group Limited group of companies and affiliates of Carraig; and
  • credit reference agencies, law enforcement and fraud prevention agencies.

We may also disclose your personal data to any prospective buyer of our business or assets or if we are acquired by a third party, in which case the personal data held by us about you will be disclosed to the third party buyer.

We may share data with our company entity in Luxembourg. If applicable, we shall ensure that there is an adequate transfer mechanism in place. We may also transfer or process your data outside the EEA. Where we transfer your personal data outside of the EEA, we take reasonable steps to ensure that your data will be protected and that any transfer is in line with EU data protection laws.

International transfers of personal data

9. We are an international business and, as a result, we may transfer your personal data to locations outside of your country.

Where we transfer your personal data to another country outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”), we will ensure that it is protected and transferred in a manner consistent with legal requirements. In relation to data being transferred outside the EEA, for example, this may be done in one of the following ways:

  • the country that we send the data to might be approved by the European Commission as offering an adequate level of protection for personal data;
  • the recipient might have signed up to a contract based on “model contractual clauses” approved by the European Commission, obliging them to protect your personal data;
  • the recipient may have adhered to binding corporate rules (only for intragroup transfers);
  • where the recipient is located in the US, it might be a certified member of the EU-US Privacy Shield scheme; or
  • in other circumstances the law may permit us to otherwise transfer your personal data outside Europe.

You can obtain more details of the protection given to your personal data when it is transferred outside the EEA (including a copy of the standard data protection clauses which we have entered into with recipients of your personal data) by contacting us as described in Section 15 below.

Security measures

10. We are committed to protecting the information we receive from you. We follow reasonable technical and management practices to help protect the confidentiality, security and integrity of data stored on our system. While no computer system is completely secure, we believe the measures we have implemented reduce the likelihood of security problems to a level appropriate to the type of data involved.

Third party websites

11. The Website may, from time to time, contain links to and from third party websites. If you follow a link to any of these websites, these websites have their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies. Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to these websites.

Data retention

12. We retain your personal data for: (i) as long as we need it to carry out the processing detailed in this Privacy Notice; and (ii) where applicable, any minimum period required by law. Specific information about our record retention policies is available on request. Please contact us at charlotte@chelsfield.com. Note that we may retain some limited information about you even when we know that you have left the organisation that you represent, so that we can maintain a continuous relationship with you if and when we are in contact with you again, representing a different organisation.

Your data protection rights

13. Under data protection law you may have a right:

  • of access to the personal information that we hold about you, and to some related information;
  • to request any inaccurate personal information to be corrected or deleted;
  • to object to our use of your personal information for direct marketing purposes at any time and you may have the right to object to our processing of some or all of your personal information (and require them to be deleted) in some other circumstances; and

In some cases we may not be able to fulfil your request to exercise the right before this date, and may need to request more time. Where we cannot provide a full response to you for any reason, we will let you know about this in our initial reply to your request. You can also lodge a complaint about our processing of your personal information with the office of the UK Information Commissioner (ico.gov.uk).

16. We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access the information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is another appropriate security measure to ensure that personal information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.

17. If you choose not to supply your personal data to us you may not be able to access certain areas of the Website or use certain services.

18. We may change this page from time to time, to reflect how we are processing your data. If we make significant changes, we will make that clear on the Website or by some other means of contact such as email, so that you are able to review the changes before you continue to use the Website.
