Automated processes may assess your eligibility to receive services based on the information you provide. If you think that process has incorrectly refused you a subscription, let us know why and we will review it.

4. Third-party links

This website may include links to third-party websites, plug-ins and applications. Clicking on those links or enabling those connections may allow third parties to collect or share data about you. We do not control these third-party websites and are not responsible for their privacy statements. When you leave our website, we encourage you to read the privacy notice of the website you visit.

5. Change of purpose

We will only use your personal data for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose.

If we need to use your personal data for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.

If this occurs and you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at

6. Disclosure of your personal data

We will not share your data with any other organisation unless legally or otherwise reasonably obliged to do so. Where there is a requirement to share your data outside of our organisation we will fully inform you of the reasons for this (where possible) and will not share unless you give us explicit consent or we are required to do so by a legal or regulatory body.

Should we wish to share data with partners for marketing purposes we will obtain you consent to do so.

7. Data Security

We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. 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. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

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.

8. How long will we use your personal data?

We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes for which it was collected, including for satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

If you have provided us with consent, then we will continue to send you details of applicable promotional offers until you withdraw your consent, or until we deem it reasonable to do remove your details.

9. Your rights

Under data protection law, you may have the following rights in relation to your personal data in certain circumstances:

Request access: You can receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you – known as a ‘data subject access request’.

Request correction: You can have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, although we may need to verify the accuracy of new data you provide.

Request deletion: You can ask us to delete or remove personal data in certain circumstances. E.g. if there is no good reason for us continuing to process it; you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing, or where we may have processed your information unlawfully or are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law.

Object to processing of your personal data: This applies where we are relying on a legitimate interest or those of a third party and you feel our processing on this ground impacts your fundamental rights; or where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes.

Request restriction of processing: You can ask us to suspend processing of your personal data where you want us to establish its accuracy; our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it (e.g. to establish, exercise or defend legal claims), or you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.

Request transfer: You can ask us to provide your data to you or a third party of your choice. This right only applies to automated information that you initially consented use of or which was used in performance of a contract with you.

Right to withdraw consent: This only applies where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. Should you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.
