    Protection Legislation”) as ‘any information relating to an identifiable person who can
    be directly or indirectly identified in particular by reference to an identifier’.
    Personal data is, in simpler terms, any information about you that enables you to be
    identified. Personal data covers obvious information such as your name and contact
    details, but it also covers less obvious information such as identification numbers,
    electronic location data, and other online identifiers.
  4. What Are My Rights?
    Under the Data Protection Legislation, you have the following rights, which we will
    always work to uphold:
    a) The right to be informed about our or my collection and use of your personal
    data. This Privacy Policy should tell you everything you need to know, but you
    can always contact us to find out more or to ask any questions using the
    details in Part 15.
    b) The right to access the personal data we hold about you. Part 13 will tell you
    how to do this.
    c) The right to have your personal data rectified if any of your personal data held
    by us is inaccurate or incomplete. Please contact us using the details in Part
    15 to find out more.
    d) The right to be forgotten, i.e. the right to ask us to delete or otherwise dispose
    of any of your personal data that we hold. Please contact us using the details
    in Part 15 to find out more.
    e) The right to restrict (i.e. prevent) the processing of your personal data.
    f) The right to object to us using your personal data for a particular purpose or
    purposes.
    g) The right to withdraw consent. This means that, if we are relying on your
    consent as the legal basis for using your personal data, you are free to
    withdraw that consent at any time.
    h) The right to data portability. This means that, if you have provided personal
    data to us directly, we are using it with your consent or for the performance of
    a contract, and that data is processed using automated means, you can ask
    us for a copy of that personal data to re-use with another service or business
    in many cases.
    i) Rights relating to automated decision-making and profiling. We do not use
    your personal data in this way.

    For more information about our use of your personal data or exercising your rights as
    outlined above, please contact us using the details provided in Part 15.
    It is important that your personal data is kept accurate and up-to-date. If any of the
    personal data we hold about you changes, please keep us informed as long as we
    have that data.

    Further information about your rights can also be obtained from the Information
    Commissioner’s Office or your local Citizens Advice Bureau.

    If you have any cause for complaint about our use of your personal data, you have
    the right to lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioner’s Office. We would
    welcome the opportunity to resolve your concerns ourselves, however, so please
    contact us first, using the details in Part 15.

    We do not collect any ‘special category’ or ‘sensitive’ personal data or personal data relating to children or data relating to criminal convictions and/or offences.
  1. How Do You Use My Personal Data?
    Under the Data Protection Legislation, we must always have a lawful basis for using
    personal data. The following table describes how we may use your personal data,
    and our lawful bases for doing so:


With your permission and/or where permitted by law, we may also use your personal
data for marketing purposes, which may include contacting you by email or telephone
or text message or post with information, news, and offers on our services.

You will not be sent any unlawful marketing or spam. We will always work to fully protect your rights and comply with our obligations under the Data Protection Legislation and the
Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003, and you will
always have the opportunity to opt-out.

We will always obtain your express opt-in consent before sharing your personal data with third parties for marketing purposes and you will be able to opt-out at any time.

Third Parties (including Google Ad-Words) whose content appears on Our Site may
use third-party Cookies, as detailed below in Part 14. Please refer to Part 14 for more
information on controlling cookies. Please note that we do not control the activities of
such third parties, nor the data that they collect and use themselves, and we advise
you to check the privacy policies of any such third parties.

We do not use the automated systems for carrying out decision-making or profiling.

We will only use your personal data for the purpose(s) for which it was originally
collected unless we reasonably believe that another purpose is compatible with that
or those original purpose(s) and need to use your personal data for that purpose. If
we do use your personal data in this way and you wish us to explain how the new
purpose is compatible with the original, please contact us using the details in Part 15.
If we need to use your personal data for a purpose that is unrelated to, or
incompatible with, the purpose(s) for which it was originally collected, we will inform
you and explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.

In some circumstances, where permitted or required by law, we may process your
personal data without your knowledge or consent. This will only be done within the
bounds of the Data Protection Legislation and your legal rights.

  1. How Long Will You Keep My Personal Data?
    We will not keep your personal data for any longer than is necessary in light of the
    reason(s) for which it was first collected. Your personal data will therefore be kept for
    the following periods (or, where there is no fixed period, the following factors will be
    used to determine how long it is kept):
  1. How and Where Do You Store or Transfer My Personal Data?
    We will only store or transfer your personal data within the UK. This means that it will
    be fully protected under the Data Protection Legislation.
    The security of your personal data is essential to us, and to protect your data, we take
    a number of important measures, including the following:

limiting access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors,
and other third parties with a legitimate need to know and ensuring that they
are subject to duties of confidentiality;

procedures for dealing with data breaches (the accidental or unlawful
destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure of, or access to, your
personal data) including notifying you and/or the Information Commissioner’s
Office where we are legally required to do so;

  1. Do You Share My Personal Data?
    We will not share any of your personal data with any third parties for any purposes,
    subject to the following exception[s].

    If we sell, transfer, or merge parts of our business or assets, your personal data may
    be transferred to a third party. Any new owner of our business may continue to use
    your personal data in the same way(s) that we have used it, as specified in this
    Privacy Policy.

    In some limited circumstances, we may be legally required to share certain personal
    data, which might include yours, if we are involved in legal proceedings or complying
    with legal obligations, a court order, or the instructions of a government authority.
    If any of your personal data is shared with a third party, as described above, we will
    take steps to ensure that your personal data is handled safely, securely, and in
    accordance with your rights, Our obligations, and the third party’s obligations under
    the law, as described above in Part 9.

    If any personal data is transferred outside of the EEA, [we] OR [I] will take suitable
    steps in order to ensure that your personal data is treated just as safely and securely
    as it would be within the UK and under the Data Protection Legislation, as explained
    above in Part 9.

    If we sell, transfer, or merge parts of our business or assets, your personal data may
    be transferred to a third party. Any new owner of our business may continue to use
    your personal data in the same way(s) that we have used it, as specified in this
    Privacy Policy.

    In some limited circumstances, we may be legally required to share certain personal
    data, which might include yours, if we are involved in legal proceedings or complying
    with legal obligations, a court order, or the instructions of a government authority.
  2. How Can I Control My Personal Data?
    In addition to your rights under the Data Protection Legislation, set out in Part
    5, when you submit personal data via Our Site, you may be given options to
    restrict our use of your personal data. In particular, we aim to give you strong
    controls on our use of your data for direct marketing purposes (including the
    ability to opt-out of receiving emails from us which you may do by
    unsubscribing using the links provided in our emails and by managing your
    Account.

    You may also wish to sign up to one or more of the preference services
    operating in the UK: The Telephone Preference Service (“the TPS”), the
    Corporate Telephone Preference Service (“the CTPS”), and the Mailing
    Preference Service (“the MPS”). These may help to prevent you receiving
    unsolicited marketing. Please note, however, that these services will not
    prevent you from receiving marketing communications that you have
    consented to receiving.
  3. Can I Withhold Information?
    You may access most of Our Site without providing any personal data at all.
    However, to use all features and functions available on Our Site you may be required
    to submit or allow for the collection of certain data.

    You may restrict our use of Cookies. For more information, see Part 14 and our
    Cookie Policy at www.technovista.co.uk/legal/cookie-policy.
  4. How Can I Access My Personal Data?
    If you want to know what personal data we have about you, you can ask us for details
    of that personal data and for a copy of it (where any such personal data is held). This
    is known as a “subject access request”.

    All subject access requests should be made in writing and sent to the email or postal
    addresses shown in Part 15.

    There is not normally any charge for a subject access request. If your request is
    ‘manifestly unfounded or excessive’ (for example, if you make repetitive requests) a
    fee may be charged to cover our administrative costs in responding.

    We will respond to your subject access request within 14 days and, in any case, not
    more than one month of receiving it. Normally, we aim to provide a complete
    response, including a copy of your personal data within that time. In some cases,
    however, particularly if your request is more complex, more time may be required up
    to a maximum of three months from the date we receive your request. You will be
    kept fully informed of our progress.
