For more information on this please email me at: dorothyanndreyer@gmail.com. In case I need to use your details for an unrelated new purpose I will let you know and explain the legal grounds for processing.

-HOW WE COLLECT YOUR PERSONAL DATA- I may collect data about you by you providing the data directly to me (for example by filling in forms on our site or by sending us emails). I may automatically collect certain data from you as you use the website by using cookies and similar technologies. Please see the cookie policy for more details about this. I may receive data from third parties such as analytics providers such as Google based outside the EU, advertising networks such as Facebook based outside the EU, such as search information providers such as Google based outside the EU, providers of technical, payment and delivery services, such as data brokers or aggregators. I may also receive data from publicly available sources such as Companies House and the Electoral Register based inside the EU.

-MARKETING COMMUNICATIONS - My lawful ground of processing your personal data to send you marketing communications is either your consent or our legitimate interests (namely to grow my business). Under the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations, I may send you marketing communications from me if
(i) you made a purchase or asked for information from us about my goods or services or
(ii) you agreed to receive marketing communications and in each case you have not opted out of receiving such communications since.

Under these regulations, if you are a limited company, I may send you marketing emails without your consent. However you can still opt out of receiving marketing emails from me at any time. I will not share your personal data with any third party for their own marketing purposes. You can ask me to stop sending you marketing messages at any time by following the opt-out links on any marketing message sent to you OR by emailing dorothyanndreyer@gmail.com at any time. If you opt out of receiving marketing communications this opt-out does not apply to personal data provided as a result of other transactions, such as purchases, warranty registrations etc.

-DISCLOSURES OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA- I may have to share your personal data with the parties set out below: Service providers who provide IT and system administration services. Professional advisers including lawyers, bankers, auditors and insurers Government bodies that require us to report processing activities. I require all third parties to whom I transfer your data to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. I only allow such third parties to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with my- instructions.

-INTERNATIONAL TRANSFERS- Countries outside of the European Economic Area (EEA) do not always offer the same levels of protection to your personal data, so European law has prohibited transfers of personal data outside of the EEA unless the transfer meets certain criteria. Many of my third parties service providers are based outside the European Economic Area (EEA) so their processing of your personal data will involve a transfer of data outside the EEA. Whenever I transfer your personal data out of the EEA, I do my best to ensure a similar degree of security of data by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is in place: I will only transfer your personal data to countries that the European Commission have approved as providing an adequate level of protection for personal data by; or Where I use certain service providers, we may use specific contracts or codes of conduct or certification mechanisms approved by the European Commission which give personal data the same protection it has in Europe; or If I use US-based providers that are part of EU-US Privacy Shield, I may transfer data to them, as they have equivalent safeguards in place. If none of the above safeguards is available, I may request your explicit consent to the specific transfer. You will have the right to withdraw this consent at any time.

-DATA SECURITY- I have put in place security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used, altered, disclosed, or accessed without authorization.

-DATA RETENTION- I will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes I collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.

-YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS- Under data protection laws you have rights in relation to your personal data that include the right to request access, correction, erasure, restriction, transfer, to object to processing, to portability of data and (where the lawful ground of processing is consent) to withdraw consent. You can see more about these rights at: https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/guide-to-the-general-data-protection-regulation-gdpr/individual-rights/ If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please email me at dorothyanndreyer@gmail.com You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, I may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive or refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances. I may need to request specific information from you to help confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. I may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response. I try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, I will notify you. If you are not happy with any aspect of how data is collected and used, you have the right to complain to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), the UK supervisory authority for data protection issues (www.ico.org.uk).
