There may also be times when legitimate interest is the appropriate justification for processing your personal data. In this situation, we have undertaken a legitimate interests assessment where the needs, expectations, rights and freedoms of all parties have been considered. Before relying on legitimate interest, we have made sure that our interests are compelling enough and will not cause any unwarranted harm.

Where are we processing personal data and who do we transfer personal data to?


We may on occasion transfer your personal data outside of the region in which the data is collected through the use of a particular processor. When this occurs, we will aim to only transfer and process personal data in countries where an adequacy agreement has been established. This means that the legal framework in the third country provides the same level of data protection as in the European Economic Area (EEA). There are occasions where we need to process personal data outside of the EEA and away from countries with an adequacy agreement with the EEA as we work with processors who process personal data in the United States. In this instance. In these instances, we have undertaken a privacy impact assessment and transfer impact assessment to identify appropriate additional measures to implement, prior to establishing data processing agreements including approved standard contractual clauses. In the event that the contractual and organisational measures are still inadequate, we will seek your consent to undertake the proposed processing.


We use different systems and platforms to manage the data we process, and a list of the key data processors are listed below:


  • ON24 – Management of our online education and training materials.
  • Pardot – Used for the management of marketing efforts.
  • SalesForce – Used for the storage of CRM information.
  • Sparta Systems – Management of quality related records.


Additionally, we use Microsoft Office storage and productivity tools to process personal data in the course of our commercial, production, logistical, operational, research and administrative activities.


We may also share personal data with partners and in line with our regulatory or statutory obligations. In all instances, data will only be shared in line with an appropriate lawful basis for processing. Data sharing is frequently undertaken following a privacy impact assessment and a transfer risk assessment to ensure the necessary safeguards and control measures are in place prior to any data sharing.
