What will we do with your personal data?

We collect and maintain personal data relating to you for the following purposes:

  • Managing the business relationship with the organisation that you represent: including procurement (if you represent a supplier or potential supplier), supplier or customer account and relationship management, and due diligence screening against official watch-lists and sanctions lists issued by governments and other official bodies globally and for ethical and regulatory purposes.

We have a legitimate interest in processing your personal data in order to run our business efficiently. Where we process your personal data only on the basis of our legitimate interest, you have the right to object to our use of your personal data. However, we do not have to stop processing personal data where we have compelling grounds that override your interests, or where we need to process your data in order to establish, exercise or defend legal claims. If you have any objections please contact us through the contact details provided below.

We may also use your information to perform a contract with the organisation that you represent or because we have a legal obligation to do so and where these grounds apply, there is no right to object.

You also have the right to require us to cease using your personal data for direct marketing purposes.

If you have any objections, please contact us through the contact details provided below.

Will we share your personal data with someone else?

Your personal data is shared with relevant individuals and departments internally within the Company you are dealing with and may be shared with other companies in the Group, for example, where another Group company is also providing goods or services to or purchasing goods or services from the organisation you represent. Your personal data may also be transferred to professional advisors or other third parties who are used by us to perform processing activities or where we are legally obliged to disclose your personal data.

If your personal data is transferred to a country outside of the European Economic Area, we will take all reasonable steps to ensure the safeguarding of any data transferred, including the provision of clear instructions as to the legal rights attached to it.

For how long we will process your personal data?

We will process your personal data for as long as the organisation you represent is likely to be in a business relationship with us. This period will depend upon the frequency of the business dealings between us and them and may be determined by local regulatory requirements.

What rights do you have in relation to your personal data?

In addition to the rights to object and withdraw consent to direct marketing, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal data. These include the right, subject to exceptions, to:

  • access your personal data
  • request the rectification or erasure of your personal data
  • request restrictions on the processing of your personal data

Please contact us if you wish to exercise any of these rights.
