We regard your privacy as important.

By providing us with your personal information or the personal information of those you wish to assess, you consent to us processing this data for these purposes.
For the purpose of providing assessments via the Online Shop, our legal basis for the collection and processing of data is determined as a ‘Legitimate interest’ in that we need this information to conduct our business or to serve our Clients.
For the purpose of marketing, eg providing newsletters, web forums etc or if you make a general enquiry or ask us to contact you, our legal basis for the collection and processing of data is determined as ‘Consent’ i.e. you have given your specific permission.
In each case we will only use the personal information you provide to deliver the services you have told us you wish to use.
