What do we do with the information we gather?
We require this information to understand your needs and provide you with a better service, and in particular for the following reasons:
· Internal record keeping.
· We may use the information to improve our products and services.
We may periodically communicate with you or send promotional emails about new products, special offers, services or other information which we think you may find interesting using the email address which you have provided.
From time to time, we may also use your information to contact you for market research purposes. We may contact you by email, phone, fax or mail. We may use the information to customise the website according to your interests.
Lawful basis of processing:
Under data protection law, we can only use your personal data if we have a proper reason, eg:
· where you have given consent;
· to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations;
· for the performance of a contract with you or to take steps at your request before entering into a contract, or;
· for our legitimate interests or those of a third party.
A legitimate interest is when we have a business or commercial reason to use your personal data, so long as this is not overridden by your own rights and interests.
We will use your personal data to send you updates (by email, text message, telephone or post) about our products or services, including exclusive offers, promotions, new products or services.
We have a legitimate interest in using your personal data for marketing purposes. This means we do not need your consent to send you marketing information. If we change our marketing approach in the future so that consent is needed, we will ask for this separately and clearly.
You have the right to opt out of receiving marketing communications at any time by:
· contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org

We have appropriate security measures to prevent personal data from being accidentally lost or used or accessed unlawfully. We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
We will notify you and any other applicable regulator of a suspected data security breach where we are legally required to do so.

To whom may we disclose your information:
We may share your personal data with selected third parties, including business partners, suppliers, sub-contractors and distributors for the performance of any contract or arrangement we enter into with you, and for the purpose of analytics and search engine providers that assist us with the improvement and optimisation of KYND systems. We will also do so if required by law or for the purpose of legal enforcement.
We will not sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties unless we have your permission or are required by law to do so.
