3. Tracking technologies
Our company uses IP level data to target advertising (this is the standard platform) and collect predicted location, operating system, timestamps and pages viewed to deliver a better user experience online and offline.
We use a third party supplier to deliver interest based advertising and you can opt out here. If you choose to opt-out, then you will no longer receive ads from our third party supplier as long as the opt-out cookie is installed on your machine. Note that your opt-out choices only apply to the particular browser and device from which you have opted-out.
We use tracking pixels, web beacons and cookies to track performance of the advertising campaigns and identify companies visiting the website.
4. Sharing of your personal information within our group
Our group consists of various companies. Where you provide personal information to one company within our group it may be shared with other companies within our group. This is in our legitimate interests to enable us to operate our group effectively and to enable us to provide you with an efficient service.
All members of our group are bound by this privacy notice.
5. Circumstances in which we may share your personal information
We may share your personal information with:

In certain cases the sharing of your personal information to a third party as described above may involve your personal information being transferred outside of the United Kingdom. This may be to:
- a country in the European Economic Area or that is otherwise considered to have data protection rules that are equivalent to those in the United Kingdom
- a country which is not considered to have the same standards of protection for personal data as those in the United Kingdom, in which case we will take all steps required by law to ensure sufficient protections are in place to safeguard your personal information, including where appropriate putting in place contractual terms approved by the relevant regulatory authorities.
6. Retention, updating and removal of your personal information
Where you provide us with personal information we may retain this information for future use, including:
- providing you with news and updates of a type you have asked to receive or that we believe you may be interested in
- corresponding with you regarding any enquiries that you have made and, where relevant, providing you with information about our products
- monitoring fraud and other illegal or unlawful activity

The duration for which we retain your personal information will differ depending on the type of information and the reason why we collected it from you. However, in some cases personal information may be retained on a long term basis: for example, personal information that we need to retain for legal purposes will normally be retained for at least six years in accordance with usual commercial practice and regulatory requirements.
It is important to ensure that the personal information we hold about you is accurate and up-to-date, and you should let us know if anything changes, for example if you change your phone number or email address. You can contact us using the details in paragraph 10.
If you want to stop receiving any information from us, such as news and updates, please let us know by contacting us using the details in paragraph 10. You can also click the unsubscribe button on any email newsletter. It may take up to one month to unsubscribe you from marketing.
Your decision to stop receiving information from us may result in the deletion of some of the personal information that we hold about you, but we may still retain personal information we require for other purposes, including where it is required for record keeping purposes.
In certain circumstances you may be entitled to request the erasure of personal information that we hold about you. To make a request of this nature, please contact us, providing full details of the personal information you want to be erased and the reason(s) for your request. We will consider all requests upon receipt and confirm to you whether we are able to agree to your request.
When you browse our website, we use “cookies” to keep track of your visit and give you a better browsing experience. This includes the following cookies:
- functional cookies, to ensure that our website functions correctly and that it can be presented to you in the most effective manner
- Google Analytics and HubSpot, to track how you make use of our site (to opt out of being tracked by Google Analytics across all websites visit http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout)
The protection of your personal information is very important to us and we have in place various security measures to ensure that your personal information is kept secure.
However, you should be aware that the method you use to get in contact with us, such as email or phone, may not be entirely secure and your personal information may be susceptible to being intercepted in transit. Equally, your personal information is at risk if a malicious third party gains access to your systems or to any other place where your personal information is stored, such as your email account.
You should therefore take all reasonable steps to keep your personal information secure, including taking care about what personal information you send us, choosing a secure password for your email account and not disclosing your passwords to anybody else. You should use a unique password for every account.
