We may also process Aggregated Data from your personal data, but this data does not reveal your identity and as such in itself is not personal data. An example of this is where we review your Usage Data to work out the percentage of website users using a specific feature of our site. If we link the Aggregated Data with your personal data so that you can be identified from it, then it is treated as personal data.

We do not collect any Special Category Data about you. Special category data is more sensitive data refers to data that includes details about your race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sex life, sexual orientation, political opinions, trade union membership, information about your health and genetic and biometric data. We do not collect any information about criminal convictions and offences.
In some cases, it may not be possible for us to provide our services without you providing the data we need. For example, if you fail to provide us with your email address we will not be able to respond to an enquiry.
3. HOW WE COLLECT AND USE YOUR PERSONAL DATA
We will collect and process data about you depending on how you interact with us. We will always be upfront about the data we collect and how we will be using it and will only ever use your personal data 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 you wish to find out more about how the processing for the new purpose is compatible with the original purpose, please email us at email@example.com. If we need to use your personal data for a purpose unrelated to the purpose for which we collected the data, we will notify you and we will explain the legal ground of processing. We may process your personal data without your knowledge or consent where this is required or permitted by law.

It allows us to easily respond to your enquiry as well as provide you with a quote, and if you become a customer, a contract and invoice.

This will be explained to you when you first sign up and we only use the information in this portal for the purposes of providing our services to you.
If you fill out a survey or provide us with a review
From time to time, if you’re a customer, we may ask you to leave a review for us (e.g. https://www.divinelyguidedstudio.com/leave-a-review). We use a third-party to run the review which means that as well as emailing us the details you provide, the information you submit will be stored on the third-parties servers. However, we will only ever use the information you provide for promotional purposes.
Typically, you will receive marketing communications from us if you have:
You are a customer who has not objected to us sending marketing materials;
Requested information from us or purchased goods or services from us;
If you provided us with your details and ticked the box at the point of entry of your details for us to send you marketing communications; and
In each case, you have not opted out of receiving that marketing.

We will get your express opt-in consent before we share your personal data with any third party for marketing purposes.

We always carry out due diligence against all our third-party suppliers, who are considered Data Processors, for the purposes of ensuring their compliance with data protection, maintaining adequate security of your data and ensuring they apply adequate data protection principles to the processing of the data we supply. We also make sure a legally binding contract (sometimes called a Data Processing Agreement or DPA) is also in place to protect your data.
5. INTERNATIONAL TRANSFERS
As a business we operate in the UK, however, we may make use of third-party services (as set out above) that may involve transferring your data outside the UK.
Whenever we transfer your personal data outside of the UK, we will always make sure appropriate safeguards are implemented. This means we will only transfer your personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data or where there is a data processing contract in place (the “standard contractual clauses”).
If none of the above safeguards are available, we may request your explicit consent to the specific transfer. You will have the right to withdraw this consent at any time. Please email us at email@example.com if you want further information on the specific mechanism used by us when transferring your personal data out of the EEA.
6. DATA SECURITY
We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know such data. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality. We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
7. DATA RETENTION
Unless stated elsewhere in this document, we will only retain your personal data for as long as it is lawful for us to do so, such as it being necessary to fulfill the purposes we collected it for, or for satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements. By law we have to keep basic information about our customers (including Contact, Identity, Financial and Transaction Data) for six years after they cease being customers for tax purposes. In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your data: see below for further information. In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.

We may need to request specific information from
you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response. We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month.
