How we use your data

We use your data to allow us to work with you and your business as efficiently as possible. For example, it helps us to ensure we speak to the best person about any opportunities or challenges that arise. As these activities are ultimately done to facilitate the smooth running of our business, our lawful basis for this processing is legitimate interests.


It’s very rare that we would pass your details onto any third parties. However, from time to time we might share your personal data with:

  • Your employer. We might discuss our working relationship with your employer, for example to pass on praise or feedback about you. Or, sometimes in conversation we’ll refer to information you’ve given us (e.g. that you’re leaving the business soon), if we believe that they already know.
  • The public. We might pass your details onto other businesses who are interested in your services, if we think the recommendation would be valuable to both parties.
  • Our data processors. We may share your data with our carefully chosen data processors. These are trusted businesses who help us communicate with you, work more productively and keep your data secure.
  • Our lawyers. We may need to share your personal data with a lawyer, should you or your business require our support with a legal case (or vice versa).

In each of these examples, our lawful basis for sharing your data is legitimate interests.

In addition, we would share information if requested to do so by a law enforcement agency or in response to a court order. Similarly, we have a duty to disclose information about possible criminal acts (for example modern slavery) or security threats to the relevant bodies.

What we don’t do with your data
  • We will not pass your details to any third party not mentioned in this policy, unless we have your consent to do so.
  • We would not store specific details relating to your health.
  • We will not transfer your personal data outside the European Union, except to countries that have been recognised by the European Commission as providing adequate protection for your data. Learn more: when would you transfer my data outside the EU?
