We may process your personal data for purposes necessary for the performance of our contract with you or your employer or our clients and to comply with our legal obligations.  

We may process your personal data for the purposes necessary for the performance of our contract with our clients. This may include processing your personal data where you are an employee, subcontractor, supplier or customer of our client. 

We may process your personal data for the purposes of our own legitimate interests provided that those interests do not override any of your own interests, rights and freedoms which require the protection of personal data.  

We may process your personal data for certain additional purposes with your consent, and in these limited circumstances where your consent is required for the processing of your personal data then you have the right to withdraw your consent to processing for such specific purposes. 

Situations in which we will use your personal data

We may use your personal data in order to: 

  •        carry out our obligations arising from any agreements entered into between you OR your employer OR our clients and us (which will most usually be for the provision of our services);
  •       carry out our obligations arising from any agreements entered into between our clients and us (which will most usually be for the provision of our services) where you may be a subcontractor, supplier or customer of our client; and
  •        to keep in touch with you while we have a continuing business relationship

If you refuse to provide us with certain information when requested, we may not be able to perform the contract we have entered into with you or we may be unable to comply with our legal or regulatory obligations. In either case we would have to stop acting for you in such circumstances. 

We may also process your personal data without your knowledge or consent, in accordance with this notice, where we are legally required to do so. 

Data retention

We will only retain your personal data for as long as is necessary to fulfil the purposes for which it is collected.  

When assessing what retention period is appropriate for your personal data, we take into consideration: 

  •       the requirements of our business and the services provided;
  •       our statutory or legal obligations;
  •       the purposes for which we originally collected the personal data;
  •       the lawful grounds on which we based our processing;
  •       the types of personal data we have collected;
  •       the amount and categories of your personal data; and
  •     whether the purpose of the processing could reasonably be fulfilled by other means.

Change of purpose

We will notify you, and where necessary seek your consent, if it becomes necessary to use data collected for one purpose for another purpose.   

5.   DATA SHARING

Why might you share my personal data with third parties?

We will share your personal data with third parties where we are required by law, where it is necessary to administer the relationship between us or where we have another legitimate interest in doing so. 

Which third-party service providers process my personal data?

“Third parties” includes third-party service providers and other entities within our group. The following activities are carried out by third-party service providers: IT and cloud services, professional advisory services, administration services, and banking services. 

All of our third-party service providers are required to take commercially reasonable and appropriate security measures to protect your personal data. We only permit our third-party service providers to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions. 

What about other third parties?

We may share your personal data with other third parties, for example in the context of the possible sale or restructuring of a business. We may also need to share your personal data with a regulator or to otherwise comply with the law.

6.   TRANSFERRING PERSONAL DATA OUTSIDE THE EUROPEAN ECONOMIC AREA (EEA)

We will not transfer the personal data we collect about you outside of the EEA. 

Where third parties used by us transfer data we impose on them an obligation to ensure that your personal data is treated by those third parties in a way that is consistent with and which respects the Data Protection Legislation such as the EU/US safe-harbour provisions.

7.  DATA SECURITY

We have put in place commercially reasonable and appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality. 

We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected data security breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected breach where we are legally required to do so.

8.  RIGHTS OF ACCESS, CORRECTION, ERASURE, AND RESTRICTION

Your duty to inform us of changes

It is important that the personal data we hold about you is accurate and current. Should your personal information change, please notify us of any changes of which we need to be made aware by speaking to your usual Wyvern contact.  

Your rights in connection with personal data

Under certain circumstances, by law you have the right to request access to your personal data, to ask for it to be deleted or corrected and to object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this basis. If you want to exercise any of the above rights, please email our Data Protection Point of Contact. 

You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data or to exercise any of the other rights. However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request for access is clearly unfounded or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with the request in such circumstances. 

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access the information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is another appropriate security measure to ensure that personal information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.

9.  RIGHT TO WITHDRAW CONSENT

In the limited circumstances where you may have provided your consent to the collection, processing and transfer of your personal data for a specific purpose (for example, in relation to direct marketing that you have indicated you would like to receive from us), you have the right to withdraw your consent for that specific processing at any time. To withdraw your consent to direct marketing please follow the instructions contained within it. To withdraw your consent to other processing please email our Data Protection Point of Contact.  

Once we have received notification that you have withdrawn your consent, we will no longer process your personal data for the purpose or purposes you originally agreed to, unless we have another legitimate basis for doing so in law.
