In the course of providing marketing services to our clients and running our businesses, we gather and use personal information about a number of different categories of people.

We may use this personal data for the following purposes:
Processing of your personal data is necessary for us to administer the pre-contract and contractual relationship between ourselves and our clients/suppliers in connection with the performance of a contract.
This applies where we need to collect and use your personal information to comply with applicable laws and regulatory requirements.
We may (but usually do not) need your consent to use your personal information. You can withdraw your consent by contacting us (see below).
Golley Slater uses and shares personal data based on its legitimate commercial interests.
The data protection legislative framework recognises that it is in our legitimate business interests to collect and use personal information for marketing reasons. We do not need your consent to do this lawfully, but we are obliged to inform you that you have a right to object to this. The law also allows us to send marketing communications by electronic means to our existing clients and business contacts without needing consent. Again, you have the right to object to this activity if you wish.
The personal data we have comes from various sources.
A number of third parties may have access to your personal information or we may share or send it to them. This includes:
– In the event that we sell or buy any business or assets, in which case we will disclose your personal data to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets.
– If Golley Slater or substantially all of its assets are acquired by a third party, in which case personal data held by it about its customers will be one of the transferred assets.
– If we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation, or in order to enforce or apply our Acceptable Use Policy and other agreements; or to protect the rights, property, or safety of Golley Slater Group, our customers, or others.
Personal information used in Golley Slater’s data products and services may also be passed to and used by members of the Golley Slater group of companies. We may also pass data to other companies that process personal data on our behalf to help us conduct our business. When we do so, we ensure that appropriate contractual safeguards are put in place.
Our policy is to not hold personal information for longer than is necessary. We have established data retention timelines for all of the personal information that we hold based on why we need the information. The timelines take into account any statutory or regulatory obligations we have to keep the information, our legitimate business interests, best practice and our current technical capabilities. We have developed a Data Retention Policy that captures this information. We delete or destroy personal information securely in accordance with our Data Retention Policy.
Golley Slater takes security seriously and we take reasonable and appropriate steps to protect your personal information from unauthorised access, loss, misuse, alteration or corruption. We have put in place physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information you provide to us including the use of encryption and pseudonymisation. We have Cyber Essentials Plus certification. If you wish to discuss the security of your information please contact us.
We do not send personal data outside the European Economic Area (EEA) as a matter of course.
Transfers of personal data outside the EEA can arise where we are acting for business clients with interests outside the EEA that:
have operations or employees / contractors that based outside the EEA
buy goods or services from businesses or organisations that are based outside the EEA
are entering into transactions with business, organisations or individuals based outside the EEA
If we are required to transfer personal data outside of the EEA, we will ensure that we do so in a legally compliant manner and take steps to ensure the information is protected in the same way as if it was being used in the EEA.
You have the right to ask us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes. We will usually inform you (before collecting your data) if we intend to use your data for such purposes. You can exercise your right to prevent such processing by not opting in to be contacted for marketing purposes. You can also exercise the right at any time by contacting us at Golley Slater Group Ltd., Wharton Place, 13 Wharton Street, Cardiff, CF10 1GS
