Cookies allow websites and applications to store your preferences in order to present content, options or functions that are specific to you. They also enable us to see information like how many people use the website and what pages they tend to visit.

 

How we use cookies

We may use cookies to:

  • Analyse our web traffic using an analytics package. Aggregated usage data helps us improve the website structure, design, content and functions.
  • Store information about your preferences. The website can then present you with information you will find more relevant and interesting.

We will never lease, distribute or sell your personal information to third parties unless we have your permission or the law requires us to.

Any personal information we hold about you is stored and processed under our GDPR data protection policy, which enhances and builds upon the existing Data Protection Directive.

 

Security

We will always hold your information securely.

To prevent unauthorised disclosure or access to your information, we have implemented strong physical and electronic security safeguards.

We also follow stringent procedures to ensure we work with all personal data in line with GDPR, which enhances and builds upon the existing Data Protection Directive.

 

Links from our site

Our website may contain links to other websites.

Please note that we have no control of websites outside the BusinessPort Ltd. domain. If you provide information to a website to which we link, we are not responsible for its protection and privacy.

Always be wary when submitting data to websites. Read the site’s data protection and privacy policies fully.

 

Rights of access, correction, erasure, and restriction  

 

Your duty to inform us of changes

It is important that the personal information we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your personal information changes.

 

Your rights in connection with personal information

 Under certain circumstances, by law you have the right to:

  • Request access (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you.
  • Request correction This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected.
  • Request erasure This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal information where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal information where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below).
  • Object to processing Where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something which makes you want to object to processing on this ground.
  • Request the restriction of processing This allows you to ask us to suspend the processing of personal information about you, for example if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it.
  • Request the transfer of your personal information to another party when the information is stored and processed automatically.

If you want to exercise any of the above rights, please use the Subject Access Request Form and/or contact the GDPR Administrator (see contact details above).

 

No fee usually required

You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal information (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.

 

What we may need from you

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.
