5. Disclosure of personal data to third parties

We sometimes share your personal data with third parties. The types of third parties with which we share personal data are described below:

Service providers

We may disclose your personal data to companies that provide services to us, such as third parties who help to power our website, platform, and business. Examples of the types of service providers we work with include:

  • Cloud-based software and hosting companies that host the website and platform on our behalf.
  • Customer relationship management companies who help us manage our contacts database and our communications with you.
  • Email service providers and business communications platforms who help us to talk to each other within the business as well as manage our communications with you.
  • Project management companies who help us manage the delivery of our products and services

Our service providers are required to keep your personal data confidential and are not allowed to use it for any other purpose than to carry out the services they are performing for us.

Third parties where required by law

We may disclose your personal data to a third party if it is necessary to comply with a legal obligation, to enforce or apply our terms of use and other agreements; or to protect the rights, property, or safety of our clients or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for the purposes of fraud protection.

Professional advisors

We may disclose personal data to our professional advisors, such as lawyers, auditors, and insurers, if necessary as part of the professional services they provide us with.

Third parties in connection with a business sale

If we make a sale or transfer of assets or are otherwise involved in a merger or business / asset transfer, we may transfer your personal data to one or more third parties as part of that transaction. If a change happens to our business, the new owners may use your personal data in the same way as set out in this privacy policy.

6. International transfers of your personal data

Where personal data is shared and disclosed as set out above, these parties may be established outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”) and the United Kingdom. For example, some of the service providers we use to support our products and services are based in the United States, and this would involve a transfer of your personal data to the United States. Whenever we transfer your personal data outside the EEA and the United Kingdom, we ensure that a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring appropriate safeguards are implemented. This may include, where appropriate, signing up to EU Standard Contractual Clauses. To keep this policy as short and easy to understand as possible, we haven’t set out the specific circumstances when each of these protection measures are used. To find out more information regarding the specific mechanism used by us when transferring your personal data outside the EEA and the United Kingdom, please contact us at

7. How long do you keep my data for?

We will only retain your personal data for as long as we need it unless we are required to keep it for longer to comply with our legal, accounting or regulatory requirements.

In some circumstances we may carefully anonymise your personal data so that it can no longer be associated with you, and we may use this anonymised information indefinitely without notifying you. We use this anonymised information to improve the way we work and our services.

8. Marketing

We may send you marketing messages from time to time in accordance with your marketing preferences. You can ask us to stop sending you marketing messages at any time by following the opt-out links in any message sent to you or by contacting us at Please note that opting out of marketing does not opt you out of receiving important business communications, such as service announcements or security information. If you opted-in to our marketing messages, we rely on our consent to contact you. Otherwise, we rely on our legitimate interests to promote our business when reaching out to business professionals and our existing customers who are likely to be interested in hearing from us.
