Where we store your information
We will always hold your information securely. To prevent unauthorised disclosure or access to your information, we have implemented strong physical and electronic security safeguards.
Your data will not be shared with any third parties, with the exception of service providers (such as cloud storage and services) who process data on our behalf.
We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely by these third parties and in accordance with General Data Protection Regulation, either by ensuring contractors and suppliers (if outside the EEA) are based in a territory whose data protection laws are deemed by the European Commission to provide adequate safeguards, or by ensuring our contracts with any suppliers cover data protection agreements and safeguards that meet EU Data Protection standards.

We will never lease, distribute or sell your personal information to third parties unless we have your permission or the law requires us to.
You have the right to ask us to ‘be forgotten’. This means that you can ask us to remove any of your personal data from our database(s), which we have to do within a month of you submitting your request. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be forgotten.
You also have a right to find out what personal data we hold on you. Please email email@example.com for this information. Please note: if your request is manifestly unfounded, excessive, or repetitive, we may charge a reasonable fee to cover our administrative costs.

Client Privacy Notice
This information is our privacy notice. It explains what we do with your personal information, why we want to use it, how we protect it, and what rights you have to control our use of your personal data.
The most important fact is that it’s your personal data. We have complete respect for your rights and we will only use your data where necessary to deliver our services to you or your employer, or to keep you up to date about developments in our products.

The data controller is Chris Johnson.

The purpose and lawful basis for processing your personal data
We use information for a few different purposes and these each have a different lawful basis. This section describes these in detail and, although it’s technical, we’re required by law to explain this to you.
- Existing client
If you are an existing client, we hold your name and contact details because we have a contractual obligation to deliver services to you. We need your contact details to deliver our services (such as send you update emails when you need to take actions, send you invoices and so on.) We will hold your information for no longer than 6 years from the termination of our working relationship.
- Previous client
If you are a previous client, in the following five year period since the end of our working relationship, we may continue to contact you with information about services because we think you will find it useful. We believe we have a legitimate interest in this direct marketing activity (and this is also permitted under the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations or “PECR”). If we do contact you in this way, you are always able to unsubscribe by clicking the link at the bottom of the emails we send, or by emailing us a email@example.com .
- Business customer or supplier of client
If you are a business customer, supplier or other contact of our client, we may have been given your personal information by that client. In which case, we may hold your name, job title and business contact details so that we can provide our marketing services to that client. We have a legitimate interest in being able to use your information in this way. We may also hold images of you that have been passed to us by your employer and/or our client if you have consented to their use by our client. We will hold your personal information for no longer than 6 years from the last time we were in email contact with you or our client.
- Associate with our line of business
If you are a supplier or other organisation associated with our line of business, we will hold your contact details because we have a legitimate interest in doing business with your company. We will aim to hold this information for no longer than five years since we were last in contact with you. It’s possible we picked this information up from public directories (such as LinkedIn and internet searches) or that you passed your details to us with a business card.
Who receives your personal data?
International transfers of personal data, and the measures in place to safeguard it
Your personal data rights
The personal data we hold about you is your data, so you have certain rights over them. This section summarises your rights. You can exercise any or all these rights when you choose, and the easiest way is by dropping us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Where we process your data based on a ‘legitimate interest’ you have the right to object to our processing of that data. From that point, we must stop processing your data until we have determined whether your rights override our, or our clients’ interests.
Your rights to lodge a complaint with the Regulator
At all times, you have the right to report a concern or lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioner’s Office. Please refer to the ICO at https://ico.org.uk/concerns/ or by calling them on 0303 123 1113.
Of course, we hope that we can resolve your issue quickly and fairly – you can contact us at email@example.com .
Other purposes for processing personal data
We don’t process your personal data for any other purpose than we’ve described here. We won’t sell your personal data to other companies.
As we develop our products and services, we might add or change our data processing. Should we do so and believe that it will affect your personal data, we will contact you to let you know what we intend to do, the lawful basis we will use, and your rights over our intended new processing. We will also publish information about it here.
If you have any questions, concerns or want some more information about our privacy management, email us firstname.lastname@example.org
