EXTERNAL LINKS

Although the Website only looks to include safe and relevant external links, users should always adopt a policy of caution before clicking any external web links mentioned throughout the Website.

The Website, which is maintained by Creative & Commercial Communications Limited, may from time to time, contain links to and from the websites of our partner networks.  If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies.  Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to these websites

WHERE WE STORE PERSONAL DATA

The terms of this policy, its subject matter and its formation are governed by English law. You and we both agree that the courts of England and Wales will have exclusive jurisdiction except that if you are a resident of Northern Ireland you may also bring proceedings in Northern Ireland, and if you are a resident of Scotland, you may also bring proceedings in Scotland.

If you are a business, the terms of this policy, its subject matter and its formation (and any non-contractual disputes or claims) are governed by English law.  We both agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales.

As described in this Privacy Notice, we may also share personal data relating to you with third parties who are located overseas, for business purposes and operational, support and continuity purposes, for example, when we use IT service providers or data storage services.

SECURITY

Unfortunately, the transmission of information and data via the internet is not completely secure.  Although we will do our best to protect personal data relating to you, we cannot guarantee the security of such data transmitted to the Website; any transmission is at your own risk.  Once we have received personal data relating to you, we use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

The security of personal data regarding you is a high priority.  We take such steps as are reasonable to securely store personal data regarding you so that it is protected from unauthorised use or access, misuse, loss, modification or unauthorised disclosure.  This includes both physical and electronic security measures.  Examples include the use of passwords, locked storage cabinets and secured storage rooms.  Other features include:

  • storing information on secured networks consistent with industry standards, which are only accessible by those employees who have special access rights to such systems;
  • using industry-standard encryption technologies when transferring or receiving personal data, such as SSL technology;
  • restrictions are placed on the electronic transfer of files; and
  • our IT networks undergo necessary vulnerability testing to continually identify and remediate potential opportunities for unauthorised data access.

We take steps to destroy or de-identify personal data when the information is no longer required for any purpose for which it may be used or disclosed by us and we are no longer required by law to retain the information.

YOUR RIGHTS

Data protection laws give you the right to access personal data held relating to you.  To protect your privacy, we may take steps to verify your identity before taking any action in response to any request.

We also want to make sure that any personal data relating to you that we hold is accurate and up to date.  You may ask us to correct or remove any personal data you think is inaccurate.

You also have the right, in certain circumstances, to:

  • the erasure of personal data relating to you that we hold;
  • the restriction of processing of personal data relating to you that we hold;
  • object to our processing of personal data relating to you that we hold; and
  • request transfer of your personal data.

Your ability to exercise these rights will depend on a number of factors and in some instances, we will not be able to comply with your request (for example because we have legitimate grounds for not doing so or where the right does not apply to the particular data we hold on you).

You should note that if you exercise certain of these rights we may be unable to continue to provide some or all of our services to you (for example where the personal data is required by us to comply with a statutory requirement, or is necessary in order for us to perform our obligations to you).

If you would like to exercise any of these rights or if you have any questions about our processing of personal data relating to you, please contact us at reception@blandfordcap.com.  We will respect and provide you with all rights in relation to personal data relating to you that we hold, and to which you are entitled, under applicable law.  Any access requests will be subject to a fee of £10 to meet our costs in providing you with the details of the information we hold about you.

CHANGES TO OUR PRIVACY POLICY

We amend these terms from time to time.  Every time you wish to use our site, please check these terms to ensure you understand the terms that apply at that time.

Any changes we make to our privacy policy in the future will be posted on this page and, where appropriate, notified to you by e-mail.  Please check back frequently to see any updates or changes to our privacy policy.
