Privacy policy

Introduction

We, PSP Facilitating Limited (trading as Public Sector Plc), have developed this privacy policy so that you may feel confident about the privacy and security of your personal information as a user of our website. This policy, when read in conjunction with our Terms and Conditions and Cookie Policy, sets out the basis on which any personal data we collect from you or which you provide to us will be processed by us.

Who we are

PSP Facilitating Limited (trading as Public Sector Plc) is a company incorporated and registered in England and Wales with company number 06132334 and registered office at Synergy House, 114 – 118 Southampton Row, London WC1B 5AA.

For the purposes of applicable data protection law, we are the data controller of any personal data we collect or receive from you.

Collection of Personal Data

We will collect and store personal data about you as follows:

Identity and contact information: If you complete any forms on our website or are required to register to access any part of our website, or if you contact us in any other way, we may collect your name, email address and any other information you provide to us; and

Technical data: We process details of your visits to our website and the pages that you access, by collecting [your internet protocol (IP) address, cookie data (see section 11 below for further information about cookies), browser type and version, time zone setting and location, browser plug-in types and versions, operating system and platform and other technology on the devices you use to access this website].

Use of Personal Data

We use your personal data to:

  • provide you with services, products or information at your request;
  • provide you with information about services and products which we believe may be of interest to you (where you have consented to be contacted for such purposes);
  • present our website in the optimum way for you and your device. The details you give us may be combined with information about your use of our website and information from any other of our records;
  • notify you of any changes to our website; and
  • as we believe to be necessary or appropriate:
  • in order to comply with a legal obligation. This applies where the processing is necessary for us to comply with the law;
  • to enforce or apply this Privacy Policy; and
  • to protect our legitimate rights, privacy, property or safety, and/or those of a third party and your rights do not override those interests.

Under applicable data protection laws, we must have a legal basis in order to process your personal data. The legal bases on which we may process your data are:

Legitimate interests: where processing of your personal data is necessary for us to pursue our legitimate interests, for example, for the purposes of enhancing users’ experience of our website and services, to promote our business.

Consent: where you have consented for us to process your personal data for one or more specific reasons, for example, for electronic marketing messages.

Legal obligation: where processing of the data is required by law.

Marketing

It is important to us that we only contact you about services, products and information which you may want or need. You will therefore only receive such communications from us if you have consented to, and have not at any point opted out from, receiving marketing communications from us.

Opting out from receiving marketing communications from us is easy and you may do so at any time by contacting us at privacy@publicsectorplc.com. We will process your request to be opted-out of marketing promptly and within 30 days of receipt.

Where you opt out of receiving these marketing communications, we may still process your personal data for other required purposes, as specified in section 4 above.

Storage and Disclosure of Personal Data

We have put in place appropriate technical and organisational security measures to prevent any unauthorised access to your personal data. Your personal data will be stored on our secure servers.

We sometimes transfer your personal data with certain third parties, including third parties based outside of the European Economic Area (EEA). The third parties to which we may transfer your personal data include:

suppliers that we engage to provide some of our services or to provide services to us. To enable them to do this, we may need to let them process your personal information. Our staff and those working for our agents or contractors have a responsibility to keep your information confidential and are only allowed to use it to provide products and services on our behalf;

  • other companies in our corporate group; and
  • a purchaser or potential purchaser of our business.
  • In addition, we may disclose your personal data to third parties where we have a reasonable need to do so in order to comply with, or enforce, any legal obligation.

We will only transfer your data to a location outside of the EEA where suitable safeguards have been put in place. These safeguards are intended to ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to your data wherever it may be transferred and include:

only transferring your personal data to countries which have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data by the European Commission;

where your data will be transferred outside of the EEA, entering into specific contractual terms which have been approved by the European Commission and which give personal data the same protection as within the EEA; or

where your data will be transferred to the US, ensuring that the third party to which we are transferring your data is part of the Privacy Shield.

For more information on the safeguards we use when transferring personal data overseas, please contact us at info@publicsectorplc.com.

We may use email in response to enquiries you make about our services.

Retention of your data

We will not retain your personal data for longer than is necessary for the purposes for which the personal data is processed. When calculating the appropriate retention period for your data, we consider the nature and sensitivity of the data, the purposes for which we are processing the data, and any applicable statutory retention periods. Using these criteria, we regularly review the personal data which we hold and the purposes for which it is held and processed.

When we determine that personal data can no longer be retained (or where you request us to delete your data in accordance with your right to do so (please see section 7 above for more information)), we ensure that this data is securely deleted or destroyed.

For more details about our retention periods, please contact us at privacy@publicsectorplc.com.

As a result of improvements we make to our services, amendments to laws or regulation or developments in the technology or processes we use, we may change the information we hold about you and/or the way in which or the purposes for which we process such information.

Where we are required to inform you of such change, or where we require your consent, we will notify you of the change. However, unless you inform us otherwise, we will deem your continued use of our website and services to which the change relates to constitute your consent to the relevant change.
