However, the site also uses third party services called Google Analytics and Hotjar to gather information about how people use the site, in order to help us to improve it and fix problems with it. The final results as presented to us by Google and Hotjar are statistical in nature and do not identify you personally.

WHO WE SHARE THAT DATA WITH

We share you personal data with some of our trusted suppliers who need to receive it in order to provide their services to us, such as our website host, WP Engine, and our mailing list provider, MailChimp.

If we sell all or part of our business, or merge with another organisation, we may transfer personal data that we have collected as described in this privacy policy, along with our other business assets, to the organisation that we are selling to or merging with.

We may also share your personal data with entities, organisations or individuals outside our organisation where this is necessary to prevent or detect fraud, to obtain legal advice, to enforce the terms of our contracts, or otherwise as permitted or required by law.

We require all parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes.

TRANSFER OF YOUR DATA OUTSIDE THE EUROPEAN ECONOMIC AREA

We store your personal data in the United Kingdom or in countries within the European Economic Area (EEA).

If we do transfer your personal data outside the EEA, we would only do so where we have a legal basis for doing so and where we ensure that your personal data is protected to the same standard as it would be protected in the UK. We would do this by entering into data sharing agreements with the recipients of your personal data based outside the EEA which comply with the EU Commission’s standard clauses for the transfer of personal data outside the EEA.

Please contact us for further information as to the transfer of your personal data outside the EEA using the contact form on our website, by emailing us at humanresources@gratte.com, by calling us on 020 7837 6433, or by writing to us at our registered office address for the attention of the HR department.

YOUR RIGHTS AND HOW TO EXERCISE THEM

The law gives you certain rights in respect of the information that we hold about you. Below is a short overview of those rights. The website of the Information Commissioner’s Office (http://www.ico.org.uk) also has a wealth of useful information in respect of your rights over your personal data.

If you wish to exercise your rights, the best way to do so is by email to humanresources@gratte.com, but if you prefer you can also write to us at our registered office address for the attention of the HR department.

YOUR RIGHT TO A COPY OF THE INFORMATION WE HOLD ABOUT YOU

With some exceptions designed to protect the rights of others, you have the right to a copy of the personal data that we hold about you, as well as information about what we do with it, who we share it with and how long we will hold it for. We may make a reasonable charge for additional copies of that data beyond the first copy, based on our administrative costs.

YOUR RIGHT TO HAVE INACCURATE INFORMATION ABOUT YOU CORRECTED

You have the right to have the information we hold about you corrected if it is factually inaccurate. In most cases the easiest way to do that is to ask your usual contact with us to arrange that.

Where we process your personal data on the basis of our legitimate interest, you have the right to object to that processing and to have restrictions placed upon it while we consider your objection.

YOUR RIGHT TO HAVE YOUR INFORMATION DELETED IN SOME CIRCUMSTANCES
