Key Points

This Policy applies to your use of our ‘Digital Services’, including, but not limiting to our website, social media and newsletters.

We use personal data to allow you to use the features in the website content, including interactive features that engage with social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter.

We use cookies and other tracking technology to collect your data. You can opt out of cookies but some features of our website may not work.

Our content is not designed for children. We do not knowingly collect personal information of children under the age of 13. Parents should supervise their children’s online activities and consider using parental control tools available from online services and software manufacturers. These tools can prevent children from disclosing their name, address and other personal information without parental permission.

Note that certain third parties may be able to identify you across sites and services using the information they process; any such processing is not done at the direction of The Outside Organisation and is outside the scope of this Policy.

We collect and process Identity Data, Contact Data, and User Content as necessary to address your request, fulfil the business purpose for which that information was provided, or for other related purposes.

How We Share Your Data

Personal data may be shared with government authorities and/or law enforcement officials if required for the purposes above, if mandated by law or if required for the legal protection of our legitimate interests in compliance with applicable laws.

We use industry standard technical and organisational security measures to protect your Personal Data. We cannot guarantee the security of your Personal Data when you transmit it to us, and any such transmission is at your own risk.

How We Retain Your Data

We retain Personal Data for so long as it, in our discretion, remains relevant to its purpose, and in any event, for so long as is required by law. This period may be different if required by law, or if we need to retain data in order to respond to claims, to protect our rights or the rights of a third party.

Consent To Cookies

In order to place cookies on your device, we require your consent. If you don’t want to receive cookies at all, you can modify your browser so that it notifies you when cookies are sent to it or you can refuse cookies altogether.

Please note that if you continue to browse the site, you will be considered to have agreed to our use of cookies.

Where we are processing your Personal Data based on your consent, you may change your mind and withdraw your consent at any time.

In addition, you can object to the processing of your personal data in some circumstances (in particular, where we don’t have to process the data to meet a contractual or other legal requirement).

These rights may be limited, for example if fulfilling your request would reveal personal data about another person, where it would infringe the rights of a third party (including our rights), or if you ask us to delete information which we are required by law to keep or have compelling legitimate interests in keeping. In these situations we will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.

We may modify, alter or update this privacy and cookie policy at any time. We will indicate any changes by updating the date at the top of the policy and contacting you as appropriate. We encourage you to review this policy from time to time.
