Notification of change of privacy and cookie policy

This Privacy and Cookie Policy may change from time to time. Please visit this website section periodically in order to keep up to date with the changes in our Privacy Policy.

Cookie consent

By using this website, my social media pages (such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Google+ and Instagram) etc., you agree that, unless you have set your computer’s browser to reject them, we can place the types of cookies set out below on your device and use that data in accordance with this policy.

How do I collect your information?

I may collect information from e-mails you send me, letters posted via “snail mail”, through the contact page on this web site or, occasionally, over the telephone.

What information do I collect?

The information I collect from you directly or from third parties with whom I work, may include:
e-mail address,
Telephone number.
I do not use cookies to collect this type of information.
I keep correspondence on file, either on physical paper if a letter has been received from you, or on computer if the correspondence is via e-mail.

Do I process ‘sensitive’ personal information?

Under data protection law, certain categories of personal information are recognised as sensitive, including health information and information regarding race, religious beliefs, and political opinions (‘sensitive personal data’). I do not collect or process this information.

How do I use your information?

I may use your information in the following ways:
to correspond with you about a piece of work you have commissioned, send you proofs and work-in-progress materials where appropriate;
to deliver finished work;
to send invoices;
also to send occasional notifications and greetings such as Christmas cards.

How will I disclose the information I have collected to outside parties?

I may occasionally pass your information to a third party where work is to be delivered in a physical form. For example, if the finished work is to be printed, I may pass on your address so that the printers can deliver to you directly. I would only do this if I have obtained your permission to do so.

How do I protect your personal information?

I take appropriate physical, electronic and managerial measures to ensure that I keep your information secure, accurate and up to date, and that I only keep it as long as is reasonable and necessary.
Although I use appropriate security measures once I have received your personal information, the transmission of information over the internet is never completely secure. I do my best to protect personal information, but I cannot guarantee the security of information transmitted to my website or via e-mail, so any transmission is at the user’s own risk.

How long do I keep your personal information?

I will keep and delete your information according to my internal policies and will keep it no longer than reasonably necessary for the purposes for which I hold it, taking into account relevant legal and regulatory retention requirements (e.g. tax requirements).

How can you update the information I hold about you or change your marketing preferences?

To update your personal information or to change any marketing preferences you may have submitted, please send the revised information via e-mail or letter to the above address. Once I have successfully confirmed your identity, I will amend my records as soon as is practical.

What other data protection rights do you have?

Under UK data protection law, you have certain rights over personal information that I hold about you. These rights are summarised below. Please note that exceptions apply to a number of these rights, and not all rights will be applicable in all circumstances.
You can assert your rights, raise a concern, or make a complaint about how I process your personal data by contacting me at the address given above. It will assist me, if you explain your request or concern and describe the personal information you are referring to as specifically as possible. In order to comply with your request, I may need further information or request that you provide proof of identity.
Your rights in relation to our processing of your personal information, include:
the right to object to the processing of your data - you have the right to object to my processing of your personal data in certain circumstances. If you object, please explain your objection and the reason for it. If you are objecting to the processing of your data for direct marketing purposes, you can tell me in any of the ways described in the section ‘How can you update the information I hold about you or change your marketing preferences?’ above and I will stop processing your data for those purposes as soon as reasonably possible.
the right to have inaccurate or incomplete personal information corrected or completed - if you believe my records of your personal information are inaccurate or incomplete, you have the right to ask us to correct or complete those records. You can do this as described in this section or in the section ‘How can you update the information I hold about you or change your marketing preferences?’ above.
the right to restrict processing – in certain circumstances, you have the right to ask me to stop making active use of the personal information that I retain in my records about you, if there is disagreement about its accuracy or legitimate usage.
right of erasure - in certain circumstances, you have the right to request that I delete your personal information from my records.
right of access - you can write to me to ask for confirmation of what information I hold relating to you and to request a copy of that information. Provided I am satisfied that you are entitled to see the information requested and I have successfully confirmed your identity, I will provide you with your personal information subject to any exceptions that apply.
the right to receive your personal information in a portable format – in limited circumstances, where I am processing information you provided to me because you gave me your consent or because it is necessary for the performance of a contract and the processing is carried out by automated means, you may ask me to provide it to you in a portable format.
If you are not happy with how I have handled your request or complaint, you can contact the Office of the Information Commissioner, which oversees the protection of personal data in the UK.
Alternatively, you may choose to contact the Information Commissioner directly about your complaint, regardless of whether you have raised it with me first.

Why am I allowed to process your personal information?

My Privacy and Cookie Policies take into account several laws, including:
he Data Protection Act 2018;
the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003;
General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679;
Generally, my processing of your personal information as described in this policy is allowed by these laws based on one or more lawful grounds, including:
where you have provided your consent to my using your personal information in a certain way. For example, I only use your information to send you marketing communications by email or text with your consent.
where the processing is reasonably necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party or to take steps at your request prior to entering a contract. For example, I may rely on this basis where you request a quote for a piece of work.
where the processing is reasonably necessary to comply with a legal obligation to which I am subject. For example, I may rely on this basis where I am obliged to share your personal information with a regulator or HMRC.
where the processing is reasonably necessary for the purpose of a legitimate interest pursued by me or a third party and your privacy rights do not override the legitimate interest. My “legitimate interests” include making arrangements with third parties such as printers on DVD replicators for delivery of work commissioned by you; submission of your details to debt collecting agencies in the event of non-payment of an invoice.
When I am relying on legitimate interests to process your personal information, I will consider any potential impact on you (positive or negative), your rights under data protection laws, and will not use your personal information for activities where the impact on you overrides the legitimate interests in the processing.
