  3. Where we need to comply with a legal obligation, such as reporting fraudulent activity or other illegal actions (“Legal Compliance”); and

  4. Where it is necessary for legitimate interests pursued by us or a third party and your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests, such as providing a list of our employees to investors as part of a due diligence process; (“Legitimate Interest”).

Change of purpose

We will only use your Personal Data for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If we need to use your Personal Data for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.

Please note that we may process your Personal Data without your knowledge or consent, in compliance with the above rules, where this is required or permitted by law.

Failing to provide Personal Data

If you fail to provide certain information when requested, we may not be able to perform the contract we have entered into with you (such as paying you or providing a benefit), or we may be prevented from complying with our legal obligations (such as to ensure the health and safety of our team).

 

SHARING PERSONAL DATA WITH THIRD PARTIES

We may have to share your data with third parties, including third-party service providers and other entities in the group. We require third parties to respect the security of your data and to treat it in accordance with the law.

We may transfer your Personal Data outside the EU. If we do, you can expect a similar degree of protection in respect of your Personal Data.

We will only share your Personal Data with third parties in accordance with the GDPR and as outlined in the legal justification table above.

”Third parties” include:

  • Third-party service providers (including contractors and designated agents) and other entities within our group. Examples of the services we may receive from third-parties that would require us to share team Personal Data could include: payroll, pension administration, legal services (such as SeedLegals), IT services, etc.;

  • Other entities in our group structure (if applicable);

  • Third parties in the context of a possible sale or restructure. In this situation we will so far as possible share anonymised data with the other parties before the transaction completes. Once the transaction is completed, we will share your Personal Data with the other parties if and to the extent required under the terms of the transaction; and

  • We may need to share your Personal Data with a regulator or to otherwise comply with the law. This may include making returns to HMRC or disclosures to shareholders such as directors’ remuneration reporting requirements.

 

If you would like to know exactly which third parties have been given access to your Personal Data by us, please contact your manager.

 

DATA SECURITY

We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your Personal Data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your Personal Data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your Personal Data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality. Details of these measures may be obtained from your manager. If any data is shared to third parties they will only process your Personal Data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

 

DATA RETENTION

We will only retain your Personal Data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. To determine the appropriate retention period for Personal Data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the Personal Data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your Personal Data, the purposes for which we process your Personal Data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

In some circumstances we may anonymise your Personal Data so that it can no longer be associated with you, in which case we may use such information without further notice to you.

 

RIGHTS OF ACCESS, CORRECTION, ERASURE AND RESTRICTION

Your duty to inform us of changes

It is important that the Personal Data we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your Personal Data changes during your working relationship with us.

Your rights in connection with Personal Data

Under certain circumstances, by law you have the right to:

  • Request access to your Personal Data (commonly known as a "data subject access request"). This enables you to receive a copy of the Personal Data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.

  • Request correction of the Personal Data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected.

  • Request erasure of your Personal Data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove Personal Data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your Personal Data where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below).

  • Object to processing of your Personal Data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground. You also have the right to object where we are processing your Personal Data for direct marketing purposes.

  • Request the restriction of processing of your Personal Data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of Personal Data about you, for example if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it.

  • Request the transfer of your Personal Data to another party.

 

If you want to review, verify, correct or request erasure of your Personal Data, object to the processing of your Personal Data, or request that we transfer a copy of your Personal Data to another party, please contact your manager in writing.

No Fee Usually Required

You will not have to pay a fee to access your Personal Data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request for access is clearly unfounded or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with the request in such circumstances.

 

What we may need from you

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access the information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is another appropriate security measure to ensure that Personal Data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.

 

RIGHT TO WITHDRAW CONSENT

In the limited circumstances where you may have provided your consent to the collection, processing and transfer of your Personal Data for a specific purpose, you have the right to withdraw your consent for that specific processing at any time. To withdraw your consent, please contact your manager. Once we have received notification that you have withdrawn your consent, we will no longer process your information for the purpose or purposes you originally agreed to, unless we have another legitimate basis for doing so in law.

 

CHANGES TO THIS PRIVACY NOTICE

We reserve the right to update this privacy notice at any time, and we will provide you with a new privacy notice when we make any substantial updates. We may also notify you in other ways from time to time about the processing of your Personal Data.

 

IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS PRIVACY NOTICE, PLEASE CONTACT YOUR MANAGER.
