Disclosing your information
We will not share your information with any other organisations for their own marketing, market research or commercial purposes. We may pass on the information we collect about you:
- in an anonymised way to our client
- if we need to disclose your personal information to any law enforcement agency, court, regulator, government authority or other third party where we believe this is necessary to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation, or otherwise to protect our rights or the rights of any third party
- to other parties where we identify serious concerns about your wellbeing
- to any third party or supplier for the purposes of providing the services, where you have provided consent (where appropriate)
Under data protection laws, you have a number of rights. For example, you can ask us:
- for a copy of the information we hold about you
- to delete information or correct any inaccuracies
- to update any out-of-date information
If we hold your information for the purposes of services we provide on behalf of another organisation, any request you make may be more relevant to them and we may ask you to contact them directly. If you do send your request to us and we pass it to another organisation, we will tell you.
When making your request you should provide us with enough information to allow us to confirm your identity. We may ask for more information, for example to allow us to locate that information or if someone else makes the request to us on your behalf we may ask for a specific form of authority by which you allow them to receive your information from us on your behalf.
If you ask us to delete all data we hold about you, and we hold the information based on:
- your consent – we will delete it. Where we do agree to delete your data this may result in the termination of our services;
- another legal basis – we will consider your request on a case by case basis, establish if the legal basis still applies and whether we can otherwise delete the information. If it is not necessary for us to keep it, we will delete it.
If you want to receive information about who the data controller is for one of our services, you should contact us.
