•    In what situations we may disclose your details to third parties
•    Your rights to access the data we collect about you

How we collect information
In addition to marketing communications, we also process personal information in the following ways that are within our legitimate organisational interests:
•    We may analyse data we hold about you to ensure that the content and timing of communications that we send you are as relevant to you as possible.
•    We may analyse data we hold about you in order to identify and prevent fraud.
•    In order to improve our website, we may analyse information about how you use it and the content that you interact with.

We may also use publicly available information about you from sources such as public registers, online (including records that you have made public on social media), or the electoral roll. This information helps us to communicate with you in a relevant way, in particular when we are approaching you about potential opportunities.
•    In all of the above cases we will always keep your rights and interests at the forefront. You have the right to object to any of this processing at any time. If you wish to do this, please use the contact details below. Please bear in mind that if you object, this may affect our ability to carry out tasks above that are for your benefit.
