7. How Do We Use Your Data?
 
7.1 Under the GDPR, We must always have a lawful basis for using personal data. This may be because the data is necessary for Our performance of a contract with you, because you have consented to Our use of your personal data, or because it is in Our legitimate business interests to use it. Your personal data may be used for one or more of the following purposes:
 
7.1.1 Providing and managing your Account;
 
7.1.2 Providing and managing your access to Our Site;

8. How Long Will You Keep My Personal Data?
 
We will not keep your personal data for any longer than is necessary in light of the operational legal reasons for which it was first collected. 
 
 
9. How and Where Do We Store or Transfer Your Personal Data?
 
9.1 We may store or transfer some or all of your personal data in countries that are not part of the European Economic Area (the “EEA” consists of all EU member states, plus Norway, Iceland, and Liechtenstein). These are known as “third countries” and may not have data protection laws that are as strong as those in the UK and/or the EEA. This means that We will take additional steps in order to ensure that your personal data is treated just as safely and securely as it would be within the UK and under the GDPR as follows.
 
9.2 We may share your data within the group of companies of which We are a part. Where this involves the transfer of personal data outside the EEA, Our group ensures that personal data is protected by requiring all companies within the group to follow the same rules with respect to personal data usage. These are known as “binding corporate rules”. More information on binding corporate rules is available from the European Commission.
 
9.3 We will only transfer your personal data to countries that the European Commission has deemed to provide an adequate level of personal data protection. More information is available from the European Commission.
 
9.4 Where We transfer your data to a third party based in the US, this may be protected if they are part of the EU-US Privacy Shield. This requires that third party to provide data protection to standards similar to those in Europe. More information is available from the European Commission.
 
9.5 Please contact Us using the details below in Part 15 for further information about the particular data protection mechanism used by Us when transferring your personal data to a third country.
 
 
10. Do We Share Your Personal Data?
 
10.1 We may share your personal data with other companies in Our group for legitimate business purposes. This includes subsidiaries and/or Our holding company and its subsidiaries.
 
10.2 In some limited circumstances, We may be legally required to share certain personal data, which might include yours, if We are involved in legal proceedings or complying with legal obligations, a court order, or the instructions of a government authority.
 
 
11. How Can You Control Your Personal Data?
 
11.1 In addition to your rights under the GDPR, set out in Part 5, when you submit personal data via Our Site, you may be given options to restrict Our use of your personal data. In particular, We aim to give you strong controls on Our use of your data for direct marketing purposes (including the ability to opt-out of receiving emails from Us which you may do by unsubscribing using the links provided in Our emails and at the point of providing your details and by managing your Account).
 
11.2 You may also wish to sign up to one or more of the preference services operating in the UK: The Telephone Preference Service (“the TPS”), the Corporate Telephone Preference Service (“the CTPS”), and the Mailing Preference Service (“the MPS”). These may help to prevent you receiving unsolicited marketing. Please note, however, that these services will not prevent you from receiving marketing communications that you have consented to receiving.
 
 
12. Your Right to Withhold Information
 
12.1 You may access certain areas of Our Site without providing any data at all. However, to use all features and functions available on Our Site you may be required to submit or allow for the collection of certain data.
 
12.2 You may restrict Our use of Cookies. For more information, see Part 14.
 
 
13. How Can You Access Your Personal Data?
 
13.1 If you want to know what personal data We have about you, you can ask Us for details of that personal data and for a copy of it (where any such personal data is held). This is known as a “subject access request”.
 
13.2 All subject access requests should be made in writing and sent to the email or postal addresses shown in Part 15. 
 
13.3 There is not normally any charge for a subject access request. If your request is ‘manifestly unfounded or excessive’ (for example, if you make repetitive requests) a fee may be charged to cover Our administrative costs in responding.
 
13.4 We will respond to your subject access request within 21 days and, in any case, not more than one month of receiving it. Normally, We aim to provide a complete response, including a copy of your personal data within that time. In some cases, however, particularly if your request is more complex, more time may be required up to a maximum of three months from the date We receive your request. You will be kept fully informed of Our progress.
