The person with responsibility for our data protection compliance is Max Webb, a Director (“the Data Protection Manager”), and he can be emailed via email@example.com.
We are the data controller of the personal data that we keep and use, and we are therefore responsible for making sure that our systems, processes and people comply with the relevant data protection laws in respect of that personal data.
We will act in respect of personal data to comply with the six principles of the GDPR, which are:
- lawfulness, fairness and transparency;
- purpose limitation;
- data minimisation;
- storage limitation;
- integrity and confidentiality.
You have rights in respect of how your personal data can be processed; these include the right to:
- request of a copy of your personal data;
- request that inaccurate data is rectified; and
- request that your personal data is in certain circumstances erased or restricted.
You have the right to complain to the Information Commissioner, which you can do by contacting the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) directly. Full contact details, including a helpline number, can be found on the ICO website. This website has useful information on your rights and our obligations.

We may share personal data with third party providers who deliver services to support the operation of our business, and in respect of our franchisees with advisors or firms that we refer franchisees to for specialist services. We may also need to share your personal data to comply with the law.

We will keep personal data only for as long as is necessary to fulfil the purposes for which we collected it, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting or reporting requirements. Normally, our retention period for personal data collected for this purpose is a minimum of 3 years after the end of a business relationship with you,.

They will only process your personal data on our instructions and where they have agreed to treat the information confidentially and to keep it secure. We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected data security breach and will notify you and the ICO of a suspected breach where we are legally required to do so.
Where we store your personal data
We will not transfer personal data outside of the EEA unless personal data is adequately protected, as required by the GDPR.
