Policy version: 12/10/2022
It also explains your rights in relation to your personal data and how to contact us or the relevant regulator in the event you have a complaint. Our collection, storage, use and sharing of your personal data is regulated by law, including under the UK General Data Protection Regulation (UK GDPR).
We are the controller of personal data obtained via the Services, meaning we are the organisation legally responsible for deciding how and for what purposes it is used.
2 WHAT THIS POLICY APPLIES TO
The Services may link to or rely on other apps, websites, APIs or services owned and operated by us or by certain trusted third parties to enable us to provide you with Services. These other apps, websites, APIs or services may also gather information about you in accordance with their own separate privacy policies. For privacy information relating to these other apps, websites or services, please consult their privacy policies as appropriate. For more information see the section ‘Who we share your personal data with’ below.
3 PERSONAL DATA WE COLLECT ABOUT YOU
The personal data we collect about you depends on the particular activities carried out through the Services. We will collect and use the following personal data about you:
|Category of data
|In more detail
|Identify and account data you input into the Services
|Data collected when you give us feedback by phone, email, post or via social media
|Data collected when you use specific functions in the Services
|Data you store online with us using the Services including your usage history or preferences (while such data may not always be personal data as defined at law in all cases we will assume it is and treat it in accordance with this policy as if it were)
|Data collected when you permit the collection of location data
|Details of your location with a high degree of precision, see the section ‘Location services/data’ below data concerning location
|Other data the Services collects automatically when you use it
If you do not provide personal data we ask for where it is required, including the geo-localisation services, it may prevent us from providing services and/or the Services to you.
We collect and use this personal data for the purposes described in the section ‘How and why we use your personal data’ below.
4 SENSITIVE DATA
Sensitive personal data (also known as special category data) means information related to personal data revealing racial or ethnic origin; political opinions; religious or philosophical beliefs; trade union membership; genetic data; biometric data (where used for identification purposes); data concerning health; data concerning a person’s sex life; and data concerning a person’s sexual orientation.
Please note that we do not knowingly or intentionally collect sensitive personal data or information about criminal convictions from individuals and that you should not submit sensitive data to us.
If, however you do submit sensitive data to us, such as if you make this sensitive data available to other users of the Services (such as by publishing it through any forum feature we may make available from time to time) we will assume that you have purposefully made any such sensitive data manifestly public.
5 LOCATION SERVICES/DATA
The Services will request your consent to use location services to precisely identify your location each session (i.e. each time the Services is opened or has been placed in the background for more than 30 seconds). We require access to that data in order to understand where our customers are located.
If you do not provide your consent, you may use the Services but that will mean the “maps” feature on the Services will not be available. To withdraw your consent at any time you can turn off the localisation permissions for our app on your device.
6 HOW YOUR PERSONAL DATA IS COLLECTED
We collect personal data from you directly when you sign up to the Services, contact us directly or reach out to us via social media, make submissions via the Services when a forum element is available, or indirectly, such as your activity while using the Services.
7 HOW AND WHY WE USE YOUR PERSONAL DATA
Under data protection law, we can only use your personal data if we have a proper reason, e.g.:
(i) where you have given consent
(ii) to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations
(iii) for the performance of a contract with you or to take steps at your request before entering into a contract, or
(iv) for our legitimate interests or those of a third party
A legitimate interest is when we have a business or commercial reason to use your information, so long as this is not overridden by your own rights and interests. We will carry out an assessment when relying on legitimate interests, to balance our interests against your own. You can obtain details of this assessment by contacting us (see ‘How to contact us’ below).
The table below explains what we use your personal data for and why.
|What we use your personal data for

|To comply with our legal and regulatory obligations we may also use your personal data to ensure the security of systems and data to a standard that goes beyond our legal obligations, and in those cases our reasons are for our legitimate interests or those of a third party, i.e., to protect systems and data and to prevent and detect criminal activity that could be damaging for you and/or us

See ‘Who we share your personal data with’ for further information on the steps we will take to protect your personal data where we need to share it with others.
8 WHO WE SHARE YOUR PERSONAL DATA WITH
We only allow service providers to handle your personal data if we are satisfied they take appropriate measures to protect your personal data. We also impose contractual obligations on service providers to ensure they can only use your personal data to provide services to us and to you.
We or the third parties mentioned above may occasionally also need to share your personal data with:
- external auditors, e.g. in relation to the audit of our accounts and our company —the recipient of the information will be bound by confidentiality obligations
- professional advisors (such as lawyers and other advisors)—the recipient of the information will be bound by confidentiality obligations
- law enforcement agencies, courts or tribunals and regulatory bodies to comply with legal and regulatory obligations
- other parties in connection with a significant corporate transaction or restructuring, including a merger, acquisition, asset sale, initial public offering or in the event of our insolvency—usually, information will be anonymised but this may not always be possible, however, the recipient of the information will be bound by confidentiality obligations
If you would like more information about who we share our data with and why, please contact us (see ‘How to contact us’ below).
We will not share your personal data with any other third party.
9 HOW LONG YOUR PERSONAL DATA WILL BE KEPT
We will keep your personal data for as long as you have an active account with us and for a period of up to 6 years thereafter to comply with any accounting or legal obligations including in the event of the pursuit or defence of legal claims. Once you have closed your account with us, we will move your personal data to a separate database so that only key stakeholders in our business on a ‘need to know basis’ have access to such data.
Following the end of the of the aforementioned retention period, we will delete or anonymise your personal data.
10 TRANSFERRING YOUR PERSONAL DATA OUT OF THE UK
Furthermore, under UK data protection laws, we can only transfer your personal data to a country outside the UK where: the UK government has decided the particular country ensures an adequate level of protection of personal data (known as an ‘adequacy regulation’) further to Article 45 of the UK GDPR; there are appropriate safeguards in place, together with enforceable rights and effective legal remedies for you; or a specific exception applies under relevant data protection law.
Accordingly, if we were to start transferring your personal data from the UK to:
- The EEA: we would rely on the adequacy finding granted by the UK to the EU under the Withdrawal Agreement to do; for any transfers from the EU to the UK, we would rely on the adequacy regulation granted to the UK under the Adequacy Decision.
- Any country located outside the UK/EEA: we would rely an appropriate safeguards under the UK GDPR, such as by including the relevant Standard Contractual Clauses in our data processing agreements
In the event we could not or choose not to continue to rely on either of those mechanisms at any time we would not transfer your personal data outside the UK unless we could do so on the basis of an alternative mechanism or exception provided by UK data protection law.
