Where we hold your personal information internationally
Personal information of customers or individuals in Republic of Ireland and other non UK countries is held on our database in the UK. Their personal information is subject to the same GDPR legislation as that of our UK customers and is therefore protected to the same standards.
Using our website
Our website may contain links that make it easy for you to visit other websites. If you use such links to leave the website and visit a website operated by a third party, we are not responsible for the protection and privacy of any personal information which you provide while visiting such websites. You should exercise caution and look at the privacy statement applicable to the website in question.
Under data protection law you have the following rights in respect of the personal data about you that we process
Access to your information – You have the right to request a copy of the personal information about you that we hold.

Deletion of your information – You have the right to ask us to delete personal information about you where:
Objecting to how we use your information – You have the right at any time to require us to stop using your personal information for direct marketing purposes. In addition, where we use your personal information to perform tasks carried out in the public interest or pursuant to the legitimate interests of us or a third party then, if you ask us to, we will stop using that personal information unless there are overriding legitimate grounds to continue.
Restricting how we use your information – in some cases, you may ask us to restrict how we use your personal information. This right might apply, for example, where we are checking the accuracy of personal information about you that we hold or assessing the validity of any objection you have made to our use of your information. The right might also apply where this is no longer a basis for using your personal information but you don’t want us to delete the data. Where this right to validly exercised, we may only use the relevant personal information with your consent, for legal claims or where there are other public interest grounds to do so.
Transfer– if we process personal information that you provide to us on the basis of consent or because it is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are party, and in either case that processing is carried out by automated means, then you have the right to have that personal information transmitted to you in a machine readable format. Where technically feasible, you also have the right to have that personal information transmitted directly to another controller.
Withdrawing consent using your information – Where we use your personal information with your consent you may withdraw that consent at any time and we will stop using your personal information for the purpose(s) for which consent was given.
