HOW WE USE YOUR DATA
Data protection law means that we can only use your data for certain reasons and where we have a legal basis to do so. Here are the reasons for which we process your data:
- Keeping Our Website Running: providing and managing your access to our website and services, personalising and tailoring your experience on our website and services. Our legal basis for this is legitimate interest (see below).
- Improving Our Website: Testing features, interacting with feedback platforms and questionnaires, managing landing pages, heat mapping our site, traffic optimization and data analysis and research, including profiling and the use of machine learning and other techniques over your data and in some cases using third parties to do this. Our legal basis for this is legitimate interest (see below).
- Marketing Purposes: We may send you emails and messages about new features, or further courses. You will always be able to unsubscribe from these. Our legal basis for doing that is either consent or legitimate interest (see below).
- Answering Your Queries & Customer Support: We will use your email and contact details to answer your contact requests and queries. Our legal basis for doing so is contractual obligation.
We have identified a legal basis for each of the purposes for which we use your data. This is what they mean:
Processing your data is necessary for our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of a third party, provided those interests are not outweighed by your rights and interests. These legitimate interests are:
- gaining insights from your behaviour on our website.
- delivering, developing and improving our service.
- enabling us to enhance, customise or modify our services and comms
enhancing data security.
- promoting our meetings, network and business opportunities to members and potential new members.
- responding to customer enquiries, contact requests and promoting our services.
In each case, these legitimate interests are only valid if they are not outweighed by your rights and interests. You can always object to our processing of your data based on legitimate interest. If you do so and we have no other legal basis for processing your data we will stop. If we do have another legal basis we will continue to do so, subject to your legal rights.
You have given clear consent for you to process your personal data for a specific purpose. You can always withdraw your consent. You can do this by getting in touch via email to Reid Collections Ltd. If you withdraw your consent and we have no other legal basis for processing your data we will stop. If we do have another legal basis we will continue to do so, subject to your legal rights.
STORING AND SHARING YOUR DATA
Data security is very important to us and we take appropriate security measures to safeguard and secure your data which is collected via our website and services.
We will never sell your personal data.
In certain limited circumstances we may be legally required to share your personal data – for example where we are involved in legal proceedings, or where we are complying with a court order, regulatory requirement, or government department with appropriate legal authority to compel us to do so.
HOW LONG WE KEEP YOUR DATA
We do not keep your personal data for any longer than it is necessary in the light of the reason(s) for which it was first collected and for our obligation under other laws.
We may need to keep your information to establish, bring or defend legal claims. We’ll therefore always keep your personal data for 7 years after the date from which it is no longer necessary for us to hold it.
At the end of that period your data will be either deleted completely or anonymised.
Exceptions to the above will be:
- Where you have exercised your right to have the information removed where it applies.
- Where the law requires us to keep your data for longer or delete it sooner.
- Where a legal claim is in progress – we’ll keep your data until that claim is concluded.
