Organisations who help us to provide our products and services
We work with a number of third-party suppliers and service providers. Many of these organisations process personal data in order to provide products or services to us or on our behalf. See the third-party data sharing list for more details.
These organisations are bound by the terms of this privacy notice and they are also required to comply with our data protection policies. They are not permitted to use your personal data for their own purposes.
International data transfers
Some of the third parties we work with have operations in countries outside of the European Union or the European Economic Area. Before your personal data is transferred outside of these regions, we implement at least one of the following safeguards:
- We check whether the personal data is being transferred to a country that has been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection by the European Commission. You can see the list of adequate countries here.
- Where we use third parties based in the United States, we check if they have signed up to the Privacy Shield framework. This framework requires signatories to provide a similar level of protection to personal data as would be the case if the personal data remained within the European Union or European Economic Area.
- We may use specific contracts approved by the European Commission which give personal data the same protection as it has in the European Union and European Economic Area.
- If we are unable to apply any of the first three safeguards, we will try to contact you to ask for your consent before we transfer your personal data.
Other situations that may require us to share your personal data
We will share your personal data if we are required to do so by law or by a regulatory authority. For example, we may have to share your personal data for the detection or prevention of crime, fraud or money laundering, or to allow a regulator or ombudsman to investigate a complaint you have submitted to them.
We will share your personal data if we need to do so to protect our business interests, such as to enforce the terms of a contract, pursue an overdue debt or defend our legal rights.
As we develop our business, we might sell or buy group companies or other businesses. This might involve transferring customer information to the person buying the businesses. If this happens, the new owner will be bound by the terms of this privacy notice.
Occasionally, we may need to share your data to protect the rights of other organisations or people. In these cases, we will try to contact you to seek your consent first but this may not be possible, especially in the event of a medical or other emergency.
