a) General marketing information

We would only use information from our general marketing website (such as name, email address) to notify you of services/information that you have requested to receive from us. To this extent this will be in the form of an opt-in process where you have positively consented to receive information on our services or news updates you have asked for. You can simply opt-out at any time from our marketing communications by using the opt-out options show in the footer of those communications. Our lawful ground for this processing is our legitimate interests as well as consent where that was given.

b) Using our product/services

If you engage with us to use our products/services we will supply your company with an agreement that governs the use of the personal data. Typically this information we collect about you is used to supply both yourself and your company with the results of online driver risk assessments and to recommend and organise training courses as appropriate. The purpose of the collection and processing or your personal information, combined with your driver statistics is to allow your organisation to fulfil its duty-of-care obligations under Health & Safety law (see http://www.hse.gov.uk/roadsafety/employers.htm for more details). Our lawful ground for this processing is the performance of a contract between employers and us. If you are an individual using our services via your employer then you will have a contract with your employer and your employer will have a contract with us to govern the processing of personal data.

3. With whom is the information shared?

We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.

When deciding what the correct time is to keep the data for we look at its amount, nature and sensitivity, potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure, the processing purposes, if these can be achieved by other means and legal requirements.
