Our "Lawful Reasons" For Processing Your Personal Data
The "General Data Protection Regulation" (GDPR) is the primary piece of legislation defining your rights over our processing of your personal information. The GDPR requires us to declare which of six "lawful reasons" we are relying on when we are processing your personal data: and we operate on the basis of "legitimate interest" when communicating with you (e.g. when responding to your enquiry).
Security and data retention
We employ security measures to protect your information from access by unauthorised persons and against unlawful processing, accidental loss, destruction and damage. We will retain your information for a reasonable period or as long as the law requires.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

Right of Access: this is known as a Subject Access Request. If you want to know if we are processing personal data relating to you and to have access to any such personal data you contact us at email@example.com.
Right to Rectification: if you believe that we hold inaccurate personal data about you, then you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Depending on the type of personal data you believe is inaccurate, we may ask you for further proof to ensure that the personal data is being corrected properly.
Right to Erasure: you have a right to ask for your personal data to be erased in certain circumstances. However, this right does not apply where we have to comply with a legal obligation or where we need personal data for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
Right to Restriction: you have a right to request that processing of personal data is restricted in certain circumstances. However, we will still continue to process the personal data for storage purposes, for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or with your consent.
