DISCLOSURE AND TRANSFER OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
Unfortunately, the transmission of information and data via the internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of any information or data transmitted to or through our Websites; any transmission of information or data by you to or through our Websites is at your sole risk.
Your personal data will be shared with and processed by our affiliates and certain service providers as necessary to fulfil the purposes set out in this policy. We use a number of service providers that provide a wide range of services including legal and financial professional advisors, IT and data security providers, data hosting providers and website managers and other IT service providers, meetings and conference vendors, auditors, marketing agencies, recruiters and HR firms, and data software providers. We make sure anyone who provides a service to, or for us, enters into an agreement with us and meets our standards for data security. To the extent your personal data is transferred to countries outside of the UK or the European Economic Area, such transfers will only be made in accordance with the EU and UK Privacy Laws. For further information about the safeguards used, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
We reserve the right to disclose your personal data as required by law, or when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, request from a regulator, national security, for the purposes of public importance or any other legal or investigatory process involving us. Should we, or any of our affiliated entities, be the subject of a takeover, divestment or acquisition we may disclose your personal data to the new owner of the relevant business and their advisors.
SECURITY AND RETENTION OF PERSONAL DATA
We are committed to protecting the personal data you entrust to us. We adopt robust and appropriate data security technologies, measures and policies, so the information we have about you is protected to the extent possible from unauthorized access and disclosure, improper use and accidental loss. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know and who need to know that personal data. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality and required to keep your personal data secure.
We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so. We will keep your personal data only for as long as is reasonably necessary for the purposes set out in this Website Privacy Notice, unless a longer retention period is required by law. We will not keep more personal data than we need for those purposes. For further information about how long we will keep your personal data, please contact email@example.com.

You have the right to access the personal data we hold about you, and there are a number of ways you can control the way in which and what personal data we store and process about you. To exercise these rights and controls, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Access: You have the right to ask for a copy of the personal data that we hold and process about you free of charge, however we may charge a “reasonable fee”, if we think that your request is excessive, to help us cover the costs of locating the information you have requested.
- Correction: You have a right to request that we correct your personal data if the information we hold and process about you is inaccurate or it needs to be updated.
- Deletion: If you think that we shouldn’t be holding or processing your personal data any more, you may request that we delete it. Please note that this may not always be possible due to legal obligations.
- Restrictions on use: You may request that we stop processing your personal data (other than storing it), if: (i) you contest the accuracy of it (until the accuracy is verified); (ii) you believe the processing is against the law; (iii) you believe that we no longer need your personal data for the purposes for which it was collected, but you still need your personal data to establish or defend a legal claim; or (iv) you object to the processing, and we are verifying whether our legitimate grounds to process your personal data, override your own rights.
- Object: You have the right to object to processing, including: (i) for direct marketing; (ii) for research or statistical purposes; or (iii) where processing is based on legitimate interests.
- Portability: If you wish to transfer the personal data that we hold and process about you on the legal ground of contractual necessity to another organisation (and certain conditions are satisfied), you may ask us to do so, and we will send it directly if we have the technical means.
- Withdrawal of consent: If you previously gave us your consent (by a clear affirmative action) to allow us to process your personal data for a particular purpose not specified in this Website Privacy Notice, but you no longer wish to consent to us doing so, you can contact us to let us know that you withdraw that consent.
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
NOTIFICATION OF CHANGESWe reserve the right to amend this Website Privacy Notice from time to time by updating this Website Privacy Notice. If we decide to change our Website Privacy Notice, we will post those changes so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. If at any point we decide to collect personal data or use any collected personal data in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify applicable users. We will use information only in accordance with the Website Privacy Notice under which the personal information was collected.
If you have any questions or concerns about this Privacy Notice or to exercise any of your rights hereunder, please contact email@example.com.
