  • To perform our obligations under any contracts that have been agreed with you, including our terms for the provision of services; or

  • To satisfy any legal and regulatory obligations to which we are subject;
  • Where no other condition for processing is available, if you have agreed to us processing your personal information for the relevant purpose.

Sharing of information

We may disclose your personal information to our trustees, employees, officers, consultants, insurers or professional advisers as reasonably necessary for the purposes set out in this privacy statement.

Your personal information may be transferred to third party service providers who process information on our behalf, including providers of information technology, identity management, website hosting and management, data analysis, data back-up, security and storage services.

International transfers

We not transfer your personal data to countries or territories outside the combined area of the UK and European Economic Area (the EEA).

Retention of personal information

We will retain your personal information only for as long as it is required for the purposes for which it was collected, or as required to do so by law.

You may receive information from us as part of your interaction with us and you may receive automated emails when content of interest to you is updated.

If you want to unsubscribe from mailing lists or any marketing, you should look for and follow the instructions we have provided within the relevant communications to you.

If you do not wish to receive emails or marketing communications from us, you can at any time contact us to request that such communications cease. If you choose to unsubscribe from any or all mailings, we may retain information sufficient to identify you so that we can honour your request.

Rights in relation to your information

You may have certain rights in relation to the personal information we hold about you. In particular, you may have a right to ask us:

  • Not to use your personal data for marketing purposes;
  • Not to process your personal data where it is processed on the basis of legitimate interests provided that there are no compelling reasons for that processing;
  • Not to process your personal data for research purposes, where relevant, unless the processing is necessary in the public interest.
  • For access to personal information held about you;
  • For the information we hold about you to be rectified if it is inaccurate or incomplete;
  • For data to be erased provided that the personal data is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected, you withdraw consent (if the legal basis for processing is consent), you exercise your right to object, set out below, and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for processing, the data is unlawfully processed or the data needs to be erased to comply with a legal obligation;
  • For the processing of that information to be restricted if the accuracy of that data is contested, the processing is unlawful, the personal data is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or you exercise your right to object (pending verification of whether there are legitimate grounds for processing);
  • For data portability if the processing is carried out by automated means and the legal basis for processing is consent or contract.

If you would like to exercise these rights, please contact us by sending an email or by one of the means set out at the end of this privacy statement. We may charge for a request to access your information in limited circumstances, if permitted by applicable law, and will notify you if this is the case before processing your request.
