As well as our Privacy Promise, your privacy is protected by law. This section explains how that works.
Data Protection law says that we are allowed to use personal information only if we have a proper reason to do so. This includes sharing it outside Elecosoft. The law says we must have one or more of these reasons:
- To fulfil a contract we have with you, or
- When it is our legal duty, or
- When it is in our legitimate interest, or
- When you consent to it.
A legitimate interest is when we have a business or commercial reason to use your information. But even then, it must not unfairly go against what is right and best for you. Where we rely on our legitimate interest, we will tell you what that is as outlined in ‘How we use your personal information’.
Here is a list of all the ways that we may use your personal information, and which of the reasons we rely on to do so. This is also where we tell you what our legitimate interests are.
|What we use your personal information for||Our reasons||Our legitimate interests|

We may collect personal information about you (or your business) from these sources:
Data you give to us:
- When you apply for our products and services
- When you talk to us on the phone or in person
- When you use our website
- In emails and letters
- In customer surveys
- If you take part in our competitions or promotions.
Data from third parties we work with:
- Public information sources such as Companies House
- Agents working on our behalf as product resellers
- List providers and market researchers
We may share your personal information with companies within Elecosoft plc and these organisations:
- Service providers who we use to help run our services
- Reseller partners who we use to deliver products and services
- Market researchers
We may also share your personal information if the make-up of Elecosoft plc changes in the future:
- We may choose to sell, transfer, or merge parts of our business, or our assets. Or we may seek to acquire other businesses or merge with them.
- During any such process, we may share your data with other parties. We’ll only do this if they agree to keep your data safe and private.
- If the change to our Group happens, then other parties may use your data in the same way as set out in this notice.
We will only send your data outside of the European Economic Area (‘EEA’) to:
- Comply with a legal duty.
- Work with our partners who we use to help provide products and services.
If we do transfer information outside of the EEA, we will make sure that it is protected in the same way as if it was being used in the EEA. We’ll use one of these safeguards:
- Transfer it to a non-EEA country with privacy laws that give the same protection as the EEA. Learn more on the European Commission Justice website.
- Put in place a contract with the recipient that means they must protect it to the same standards as the EEA. Read more about this here on the European Commission Justice website,
- Transfer it to organisations that are part of Privacy Shield. This is a framework that sets privacy standards for data sent between the US and EU countries. It makes sure those standards are similar to what is used within the EEA. You can find out more about data protection on the European Commission Justice website.
We may need to collect personal information under the terms of a contract we have with you.
If you choose not to give us this personal information, it may delay or prevent us from meeting our obligations. It may also mean that we cannot deliver products and services for you or it could mean that we cancel a product or service you have with us.
We may use your personal information to tell you about relevant products and offers. This is what we mean when we talk about ‘marketing’.
The personal information we have for you is made up of what you tell us, the data we collect when you use our services, or from third parties we work with.
We will only use your personal information to send you marketing messages where we have a ‘legitimate interest’ to do so. That is when we have a business or commercial reason to use your information. It must not unfairly go against what is right and best for you.
You can ask us to stop sending you marketing messages by contacting us at any time or choosing the ‘unsubscribe’ option on communication you receive.
We will keep your personal information for as long as you are a customer of any Elecosoft business or we are in contact with you regarding our products and services. If you stop being a customer or request us to cease contacting you about our products and services, we may keep your data indefinitely if we cannot delete it for legal, regulatory or technical reasons. We may also keep it for research or statistical purposes. If we do, we will make sure that your privacy is protected and only use it for those purposes.
You can access your personal information by writing to us at this address:
Personal information request, Elecosoft, Parkway House, Pegasus Way, Haddenham Business Park, Haddenham, Bucks, HP17 8LJ
You have the right to object to our use of your personal information, or to ask us to delete, remove, or stop using your personal information if there is no need for us to keep it. This is known as the ‘right to object’ and ‘right to erasure’, or the ‘right to be forgotten’.
There may be technical, contractual or other official reasons why we need to keep or use your data but please tell us if you think that we should not be using it.
We may sometimes be able to restrict the use of your data. This means that it can only be used for certain things, such as legal claims or to exercise legal rights. In this situation, we would not use or share your information in other ways while it is restricted.
If you want to object to how we use your data, or ask us to delete it or restrict how we use it or, please contact us.
