DISCLOSURE OF YOUR INFORMATION

We may share your personal information with any member of our Group.

 We may share your information with selected third parties including:

  • business partners, suppliers and sub-contractors for the performance of any contract we enter into with you;
  • analytics and search engine providers that assist us in the improvement and optimisation of our site; and
  • credit reference agencies for the purpose of assessing your credit score where this is a condition of us entering into a contract with you.

In each case we will do this either in order to perform our contract with you, or on the basis of our legitimate interest, promoting the success of the business.

We may disclose your personal information to third parties:

  • in the event that we sell or buy any business or assets, in which case we may disclose your personal data to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets as it would be in our legitimate interests (in the success of the business and in the interests of our shareholders) to do so;
  • if Bridges Business Space No. 2 LLP, any other member of the Group or substantially all of the assets of Bridges Business Space No.2 LLP or any other Group entity are acquired by a third party, in which case personal data held by it about its customers will be one of the transferred assets (and data transfer would take place pursuant to the legitimate interests of the Group, including Brides Business Space No.2 LLP, as well as those of the buyer); and
  • if we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation, or in order to enforce or apply our terms of use and other agreements; or to protect the rights, property, or safety of Bridges Business Space No. 2 LLP, our customers, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

We won’t share your personal data with third parties unless we have a legal basis to do so.

Our site may, from time to time, contain links to and from the websites of our partner networks, advertisers and affiliates. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that 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.

HOW AND WHERE WE STORE YOUR PERSONAL DATA

Most of the data we store is held electronically. We store a small amount of personal data in hard copies – generally this is customer personal data only. We use secure filing systems for this purpose and limit access. Our online data systems are secured with appropriate technical and organisational measures including industry standard security. We don’t hold personal data for longer than it is needed, and we delete data which we no longer need. In general, we retain data for the duration of our relationship with you and for up to 7 years afterwards (in case of any legal claims).

The data that we collect from you is not routinely transferred to, or stored in, destinations outside of the European Economic Area (“EEA”), but such transfer may occur where we are working with third parties, for example IT suppliers whose servers or services are located in, or originate from, outside of the EEA. It may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for us or for one of our suppliers, such as when they go on holiday. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy policy, and that personal data transferred outside of the EEA is done so only:

  • in accordance with a decision by the European Commission that the relevant country provides an adequate level of data protection;
  • if we have taken measures to ensure recipients provide an adequate level of data protection. For example, in such case, we may use standard contractual data protection clauses approved by the European Commission; or
  • to recipients in the US who are certified according to the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework approved by the European Commission.

We will do our best to protect your personal data and will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

 YOUR RIGHTS

Except for in certain circumstances, you have a number of rights with respect to your data.  These include asking us to:

  • correct or erase your data;
  • restrict how we use your data;
  • provide your data for you to use; and
  • stop processing your data.

If we have asked you for your consent, you have the right to withdraw that at any time and there are only a small number of circumstances where we can refuse you that right. In any case, this wouldn’t affect any of the processing we’ve done to that point, but it might stop us from being able to provide services to you. We would let you know if that were the case when responding to your request.

You can exercise your certain of your rights by checking certain boxes on the forms we use to collect your data. You can also exercise these rights at any time by contacting us at Privacy Officer, 38 Seymour Street, London, W1H 7BP. In the event that we believe we have a reason not to follow your request, we will explain why.

 CHANGES TO OUR PRIVACY POLICY

Any changes we may make to our privacy policy in the future will be posted on this page and, where appropriate, notified to you by e-mail. Please check back frequently to see any updates or changes to our privacy policy.
