Our website usage information is collected using cookies, for more information on cookies and how to manage them please see the cookies section of this policy. The GDPR refers to sensitive personal data as “special categories of personal data”. We do not knowingly collect or process any sensitive personal data. We only collect the information that’s necessary to carry out our business activities, provide you with the service you have requested and to keep in touch about our services, opportunities, as well as sharing insight and marketing information. Here are some examples of information we collect about you when you interact with us.

We use your personal data to:

The GDPR set out the following lawful bases: (a) Consent: the individual has given clear consent for you to process their personal data for a specific purpose. (b) Contract: the processing is necessary for a contract you have with the individual, or because they have asked you to take specific steps before entering into a contract. (c) Legal obligation: the processing is necessary for you to comply with the law (not including contractual obligations). (d) Vital interests: the processing is necessary to protect someone’s life. (e) Public task: the processing is necessary for you to perform a task in the public interest or for your official functions, and the task or function has a clear basis in law. (f) Legitimate interests: the processing is necessary for your legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of a third party unless there is a good reason to protect the individual’s personal data which overrides those legitimate interests.  


We will only use your personal information when the law allows us to, for example:

  • to perform our contractual obligations towards you as set out in our contract

  • to pursue our legitimate interests (e.g. conducting our business in an efficient, compliant and profitable manner and the overall promotion of the business), and where your interests and fundamental rights do not override these interests

  • We will also rely on our legitimate interests for the proper administration of our website, and to manage our operations (for example, maintaining appropriate records and databases)

  • To send you industry insights and company news where we have your consent or a legitimate interest to send relevant insight about your industry

  • letting you know when new opportunities open

  • complying with our legal and regulatory obligations


If you have provided us with your individual contact details (for example, your personal email address), we will rely on your consent to send you electronic communications with information about our services, potential opportunities or participation in market research. If we hold your business contact details (for example, your work email address), we will rely on legitimate interests of the business to send you electronic communications such as our trend and industry insight reports or insight newsletters and information about our services, but we will always provide you with an option to opt out from future communications of this kind. For more information on direct mailing please see the ‘direct mailing” section of this policy. Some of the above grounds for processing will overlap and there may be several grounds which justify our use of your personal information. We will only use your personal information for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If we need to use your personal information for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so. Please note that we may process your personal information without your knowledge or consent, in compliance with the above rules, where this is required or permitted by law.



We would like to stay in touch and send you industry insights and information about our services which may be of interest to you. If you have previously consented to receive our Newsletters, you may opt out from receiving these communications any time. If you no longer wish to receive our trend or industry insight reports or insight newsletters or information on our services, you can unsubscribe by Email. Alternatively, you can also click the “unsubscribe” link in any communication that we send to you by email which will automatically unsubscribe you from that type of communication. Please note that you may continue to receive communications which are already en route to you for a short period of time while your relevant unsubscribe request is being processed.


You have specific rights in relation to the personal information we hold about you. These include your rights to request we:

  1. Confirm to you what personal data we may hold about you, if any, and for what purposes.

  2. Change the consent which you have provided to us in relation to your personal data

  3. Correct any inaccurate or incomplete personal data which we may hold about you

  4. Request the transfer of your personal information to another party
