Nor do we collect information about criminal convictions and offences.

If you do not provide the personal data required for the contact forms, we will not be able to respond to you.

If we need to collect personal data under the law, or under the terms of a contract we have with you and you do not provide us with the data when requested, we may not be able to perform the contract we have or are trying to enter into with you. In this case, we may cancel the provision of the Services, but we will inform you if this is the case.”


We collect, use, transfer and store your personal data in accordance with applicable laws and this Policy.

Most commonly, we will use your personal data (i) when we need to perform the relevant contract we enter into or have entered into with you, (ii) when it is necessary for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) and your interests and fundamental rights do not infringe those interests, and (iii) when we need to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation.

In general, we do not rely on consent as a lawful basis for processing your personal data other than in relation to sending third party direct marketing communications by email. You have the right to withdraw your consent to marketing at any time by contacting us.

Your data may be used for one or more of the following purposes:

For specific purposes

If you send us your data for a specific purpose, we will use your data to achieve that purpose. For example, if you send us an email, we will use your contact details to provide you with a response to your request.

To manage the relationship with you

We will use your identity and contact details to inform you of changes to the Terms and Conditions, Privacy Policy or Services.

For internal business purposes

We may use your identity, contact, financial and technical data for our business, the provision of administration and IT services (e.g. technical troubleshooting, data analysis, support), network security (e.g. testing, system maintenance), to prevent fraud and in the context of a business reorganisation or group restructuring exercise.

To deliver relevant website content and advertisements

We may use your identity, contact, profile, technical and usage data to understand how customers and users use our services, to develop them and to communicate our marketing strategy.l

We will not use your data for purposes other than those detailed above. If we intend to use your personal data in any way that does not comply with this Privacy Policy, you will be informed of that use in advance or at the time your personal data is collected or we will obtain your consent after collection but prior to use.

Aggregate data

In an ongoing effort to better understand and serve our users, we often conduct research on our customers’ demographics, interests and behaviors based on personal data and other information we have collected. This research is typically conducted only in the aggregate, which does not lead to your identification. Once personal data is in aggregate form, for the purposes of this Policy, it becomes non-personal data.”


We will not sell your data to third parties, including third party advertisers. However, there are certain circumstances in which we disclose, transfer or distribute your Personal Data with certain third parties without informing you, as set out below.

Commercial Transfers

As we grow our business, we may sell or buy businesses or assets. In the event of a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution or similar event, your data may be part of the transferred assets. You acknowledge and agree that any successor or acquirer of BDR Associates (or its assets) will continue to have the right to use your data or other information in accordance with the terms of this Policy.

Parent, Subsidiary and Affiliated Companies

We may share your data with parent, subsidiary and/or affiliated companies in accordance with the purposes of this Privacy Policy. Parent companies, subsidiaries and affiliates will be required to maintain personal data in accordance with this Policy.

Agents, consultants and service providers

We may distribute your data to our subcontractors and service providers who process data on behalf of BDR Associates to perform certain business-related functions. When we authorise a third party to process your data, we remain responsible for data protection. Third parties will only have access to information about you when it is necessary for the provision of their services. The third parties we may involve are:

  • Marketing service providers;
  • Database service providers;
  • Hosting service providers;
  • Email service providers;
  • Data aggregation agencies;
  • Payment service providers.
  • Fraud prevention

We may verify the details you provide to us with fraud prevention agencies and share your information with these agencies if we suspect fraud. It is important that you do not provide false or inaccurate information or use another person’s identity.

Legal requirements

We may disclose your data if required to do so by law (for example) to respond to a subpoena or a request for enforcement, a court or government agency (including in response to law enforcement or national security requirements), or in the belief that such action is necessary (i) to comply with a legal obligation, (ii) to protect or defend our or third parties’ rights, interests or property, (iii) to prevent or investigate possible crimes in connection with the Services, (iv) to act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of Users/Customers of the Services or the public, or (v) to protect against legal liability.

International Transfers

Some of our external third party providers are based outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”). The processing of your personal data will involve a transfer of data outside the EEA.

Whenever we transfer your personal data outside the EEA, we try to ensure that one of the following protections is in place:

We will only transfer your personal data to countries where the European Commission has deemed that they offer an adequate level of protection of personal data;

Where we use certain service providers, we may use certain contracts approved by the European Commission, which offer the same protection to personal data as in Europe;

When we use US-based providers, we may transfer data to them if they are part of the Privacy Shield which requires them to provide similar protection to personal data shared between the EEA and the US. For more details, see European Commission: EU-US Privacy Shield;

Where that data does not support one of the above protections, we will transfer that data outside the EEA only when necessary for the performance of our contract with you or when we have your full, informed, active and express consent. We will take all necessary steps to ensure that your personal data is protected when we transfer it outside the EEA.


We may store personal data or such information may be stored by third parties to whom we have transferred it in accordance with this Policy. We have taken reasonable steps to protect personal data collected through the Services against loss, misuse, unauthorized use, access, improper disclosure, alteration and destruction.

In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who need to know it. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and are subject to an obligation of confidentiality.

However, please be aware that no network, server, database, Internet or email transmission is completely secure or error-free. Therefore, you should pay special attention to the decision of what information you send to us electronically. Please keep this in mind when disclosing personal data.


We will retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes for which it was collected, including for the purposes of fulfilling any legal, accounting or reporting requirements.

In determining the appropriate retention period for personal data, we take into account the amount, nature and sensitivity of personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes by other means, and applicable legal requirements.

In some circumstances, we may anonymise your personal data (so that it is no longer associated with you) for research or statistical purposes, in which case we may use this information indefinitely without informing you.

We will ensure the secure deletion of your personal data as soon as the processing is no longer justified by one of the legal reasons mentioned above.”
