Why we process your data
When we make reference to ‘personal information’, ‘information’ or ‘data’ this has the same meaning is the ‘personal data’ under the Regulation.
We will process your information because we believe that you or the organisation you represent may be interested in our services/products, you have expressed an interest in our services/products or because you/your organisation is/are a client. That’s it. We do not share/sell your data with other companies so that they can send you their information. No-one likes that, it’s wrong and we will not do it.
Before becoming a client, we may be required under certain circumstance to seek your consent to process your information for direct marketing purposes. On becoming a client it may be necessary to process your information for our legitimate purposes, which will be to provide you with the service or product that you require and to inform you about other products and services that may be of value to you or your organisation.
To perform certain functions within our business we may share your information with other recipients who support us in providing you or your organisation with our services and products. We keep this sharing to a minimum and on an as necessary basis.
Transferring personal data overseas
For us to perform the normal functions of our company and in providing you with goods and services, your information will be transferred overseas due it being processed by cloud software tools based overseas. These tools include cloud-based marketing systems and document storage. The data is processed in Canada and the United States. The European Commission has determined that Canada is a safe country with which to share data. The cloud-based providers in the United States that we use are committed to protecting your data to the requirements of the Regulation by complying with the US-EU Privacy Shield.

From time-to-time we may reach out to you by phone, email or post to provide you with information about our services and products. If that’s not something you want then let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org
Obligations to provide us with certain information
When you choose to buy services or products from us we will require certain information to undertake the relevant financial transaction and to provide you with your chosen services or products. This is a contractual requirement. If you do not provide the required information then you will not be able to pay for those services or products and neither will you or your organisation be able to receive them from us.
In line with the practice of many websites, we use tools to understand where our site visitors have come from, their characteristics and their online behaviour by virtue of you accessing our site. This helps us to determine how best to offer services and products to website visitors and clients.
