Information collection and use:

How do we collect information?

We collect information in two possible ways:

  1. When you directly give it to us – for example filling in the booking form on the website
  2. When you give us permission to obtain from other accounts – for example carrying out payment checks through our payment services provider

How long do we keep your data for?

We will not retain your personal information longer than necessary. We will hold onto the information you provide either while your client account is in existence, or as needed to be able to provide the services to you.

If legally required or if it is reasonably necessary to meet regulatory requirements, resolve disputes, prevent fraud and abuse, or enforce our Terms and Conditions, we may also retain some of your information for a limited period of time as required.

We will not sell or rent your personally identifiable information, gathered from this website, to anyone.

Grounds for processing your data

We undertake activities for the following reasons

  1. In pursuance of our legitimate interests as a commercial organisation, including the promotion and marketing of our brand and services;
  2. To enable us to fulfil any contractual obligations that may exist when you make a booking and purchase any of our services;
  3. Based on your consent (if applicable).

Who we may share your data with

To undertake our legitimate business interests and provide you with the marketing services you have requested, we will sometimes have to share your data with third parties, including business partners, suppliers and contractors that we use to undertake our business activities.

We use a third party provider, AnyTime, to deliver our email communications. Please see AnyTime for their Privacy Policy.

  • You can always feel free to update us on your details at any point by email.
  • You can unsubscribe from receiving marketing emails from us by advising us by email at any time. Once you do this, you will no longer receive any marketing emails from us. However, we may retain archived copies of your information as required by law or for legitimate business purposes.
