Third party websites
We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used, accessed, altered or disclosed in an unauthorised way. We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
Please note that the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we shall do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we shall use effective safeguarding procedures and security features to try to prevent any unauthorised access to your personal data.
We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes for which we collected it, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. Details of retention periods for different aspects of your personal data are available in our retention policy, which you can request from us by contacting us.
Under certain circumstances, you have certain rights in relation to the data that we hold about you, as listed and described in further detail below.
If you would like us make any amendments or updates to your personal data, or wish to exercise any of your rights, you can contact us by email on firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone on +44 (0)207 9936041. Alternatively, you can contact us by writing to us at: ValueLicensing, St Katherine’s House, Mansfield Road, Derby, DE1 3TQ, United Kingdom
We shall comply with any request made under this section as soon as possible, and normally within one month from the date of your request. However, if necessary, for example if your request is particularly complex or we receive a number of similar requests, we may extend this period by an additional two months, but we shall notify you if we need to do this.
You will not usually have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). However, please note that where we receive requests under this section which are manifestly unfounded or excessive, for example because they are repetitive in nature, we may:
- charge a reasonable fee taking into account the administrative costs of providing the information or taking the action requested; or
- refuse to act on the request.
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
Right to access
You have the right to request a copy of the information that we hold about you at any time. This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data that we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it. Please note that in most circumstances, we shall not make a charge for this. However, we may charge a reasonable fee based on administrative costs for any further copies requested.
Right to withdraw consent
Where you have given us your consent to the processing by us of any of your personal data, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time when you contact us to withdraw your consent.
You can ask us or third parties to stop sending you marketing messages at any time by following the opt-out links on any marketing message sent to you or by contacting us at any time.
Right of erasure
You have the right to ask us to erase the personal data that we hold about you in circumstances where:
- it is no longer necessary for us to handle your personal data for the purpose for which it was originally collected;
- you have withdrawn your permission for us to hold your personal data (where this was the basis on which it was collected or used);
- you object to the processing of the data and there is no lawful overriding reason for us to continue processing your personal data;
- the personal data was unlawfully processed; or
- we have to erase your personal data in order to comply with a legal obligation.
Please note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons: in that event, those reasons will be notified to you at the time when you make your request.
Right to restrict processing
You can ask us to restrict how we use your data in the following circumstances:
- where you believe that the information we hold about you is inaccurate, you can ask that we refrain from using your data until we can verify the accuracy of it;
- where we have unlawfully processed your data, you can ask that we restrict our usage of it rather than erase it completely;
- where we no longer need to hold your information, but you wish us to retain your information for the purpose of establishing, exercising or defending a legal claim; or
- where you have objected to our use of your information but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.
Right to rectification
You have the right at any time to ask us to rectify any personal data that we hold for you which is incorrect or incomplete. This enables you to have corrected any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data that you provide to us.
If we have disclosed any incorrect or incomplete data to any third parties, we shall inform them of any necessary amendments or corrections made to your personal data under this section.
Right to data portability
You have the right to obtain from us all personal data that you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine readable form, provided that such data was processed based on your consent, or for the purpose of a contract between us and the processing was carried out by automated means. Please note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you personally.
Please note that we shall not be able to comply with a data portability request if this will affect the rights and freedoms of others.
Right to object
You have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to our processing of your personal data. This applies where we are processing your data for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest (which we shall have told you about, if applicable), or where we are carrying out processing for the purposes of legitimate interests pursued by us.
You also have the right at any time to ask us not to process your personal data for direct marketing or profiling purposes. If you wish to opt out of receiving certain types of communication from us, please contact us and let us know.
You have the right to make a complaint to the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) if you are dissatisfied in anyway with how we have treated your personal data. However, we would prefer to have the opportunity to able to deal with your concerns before you make a complaint to the ICO and would accordingly ask you to contact us first for that purpose. Our contact details are provided in the section above titled “Your rights”.
We keep this policy under regular review, meaning that amendments may be made on this page from time to time if we make any changes to how or why we process your personal data.
If we make any major changes, we will make it clear on our website and on this page. We will also send you an email to update you of any significant changes.
