Online ads

We use online advertising to keep you aware of what we’re up to and to help you find our products. Like many companies, we may target our banners and ads to you when you use other websites and apps, based on your Contact, Technical, Usage and Profile Data. We do this using a variety of digital marketing networks and ad exchanges, and a range of advertising technologies such as web beacons, pixels, ad tags, cookies, and mobile identifiers, as well as specific services offered by some sites and social networks, such as Facebook’s Custom Audience Service.

Our use of analytics and targeted advertising tools

We use a range of analytics and targeted advertising tools to display relevant website content on our website and online advertisements on other websites and apps (as described above) to you, deliver relevant content to you in marketing communications (where applicable), and to measure the effectiveness of the advertising provided. For example, we use tools such as Google Analytics to analyse Google’s interest-based advertising data and/or third-party audience data (such as age, marital status, life event and interests) to target and improve our marketing campaigns, marketing strategies and website content. We may also use tools provided by other third parties, such as Facebook to perform similar tasks, using your Contact, Technical, Usage and Profile Data.

To opt out of targeted advertising you need to disable your ‘cookies’ in your browser settings or opt-out of the relevant third-party Ad Settings. For example, you can opt-out of the Google Display Advertising Features.

Overseas transfers of your personal data

We may transfer your personal data to an external third party which is based outside the EEA so their processing of your personal data will involve a transfer of data outside the EEA.

Whenever we transfer your personal data out of the EEA, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:

  • We will only transfer your personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data by the European Commission.
  • Where we use certain service providers, we may use specific contracts approved by the European Commission which give personal data the same protection it has in Europe.

How long we keep your data

We will not keep your personal data for longer than we need to, the period for which we will keep your personal data will depend on the type of service you have requested from us. The retention period may be longer than the period for which we are providing services to you where we have statutory or regulatory obligations to retain personal data for a longer period, or where we may need to retain information in case of legal claim.

In some circumstances we will anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes, in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.

How we protect your data

We implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect data that we process from unauthorised disclosure, use, alteration, or destruction.

In addition to the technical and organisational measures we have put in place, there are a number of simple things you can do to in order to further protect your personal information;

  • Never share a One Time Passcode (OTP).
  • Never enter your details after clicking on a link in an email or text message.
  • Always send confidential information by encrypted email where possible this reduces the risk of interception.
  • If you’re logged into any online service do not leave your computer unattended.
  • Close your internet browser once you’ve logged off.
  • Never download software or let anyone log on to your computer or devices remotely, during or after a cold call.
  • You can easily identify secure websites by looking at the address in the top of your browser which will begin https:// rather than http://.

In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.

  • Rights in relation to automated decisions. – We have some processes that may involve an automated decision however we ensure you are informed of the decision by a staff member who will outline the validation for the decision.

No fee usually required

What we may need from you

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.

Time limit to respond

We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it could take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
