When you use the Simpkin & Roses Services and/or when you otherwise deal with us, we may collect the following information about you (the Information):
We automatically collect certain Information when you visit, use or navigate the Simpkin & Roses Platform. This Information does not reveal your specific identity (unless your device name is the same as your name) but may include device and usage Information, such as your IP address, browser and device characteristics, operating system, language preferences, referring URLs, device name, country, location, Information about how and when you use the Simpkin & Roses Platform and other technical Information. This Information is primarily needed to maintain the security and operation of the Simpkin & Roses Platform, and for our internal analytics and reporting purposes.
Like many businesses, we also collect Information through cookies and similar technologies.
We use your Information collected via the Simpkin & Roses Services for a variety of business purposes described below. We process your Information for these purposes in reliance on our legitimate business interests (Business Purposes), in order to enter into or perform a contract with you (Contractual Reasons), with your consent (Consent), and/or for compliance with our legal obligations (Legal Reasons).

We may process your Information for the following purposes:
We only share and disclose your Information in the following situations:
We may disclose aggregated, anonymous Information (i.e. Information from which you cannot be personally identified), or insights based on such anonymous Information, to selected third parties, including (without limitation) analytics and search engine providers to assist us in the improvement and optimisation of the Simpkin & Roses Services. In such circumstances we will not disclose any Information which can identify you personally.
Whenever we transfer your Information outside of the UK, we will take all reasonably practicable measures to protect your Information in accordance with this Policy and applicable laws. To the extent that any transfer requires approved safeguards to be in place we will ensure these measures are in place.
The Simpkin & Roses Platform may feature links to third party websites or contain advertisements from third parties that are not affiliated with us and which may link to other websites, online services or mobile applications. We cannot guarantee the safety and privacy of data you provide to any third parties. Any data collected by third parties is not covered by this Policy.
We are not responsible for the content or privacy and security practices and policies of any third parties, including other websites, services or applications that may be linked to or from the Simpkin & Roses Platform.

We will only keep your Information for as long as it is necessary for the purposes set out in this Policy, unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law (such as tax law, accounting requirements or other legal or regulatory requirements).
When we have no ongoing Business Purpose to justify the processing of your Information, we will either delete or anonymise it, or, if this is not possible (for example, because your Information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your Information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
We have implemented appropriate technical and organisational security measures designed to protect the security of any Information we process. However, please also remember that we cannot guarantee that the Internet itself is 100% secure.

You should only access our services within a secure environment.
We do not knowingly solicit data from or market to children under 16 years of age. By using the Simpkin & Roses Services, you represent that you are at least 16 years of age.

The Simpkin & Roses Platform may offer you the ability to register and log-in using your third party social media account details (e.g. Facebook, Twitter etc).

The Information that you post, transmit, or otherwise make available on the social media platform may be viewed and/or used by other users of those networks and we have no control over that viewing and use and cannot prevent further use of that Information by third parties.
If you choose to link your Simpkin & Roses profile to a social media account, Information that you provide to us in the process may be included on your Simpkin & Roses profile.

When you interact with us through social media networks, you acknowledge that we may access your Information that is held by that account, solely in accordance with your social media privacy settings. Any links to social media are not under our control and remain solely your responsibility. You acknowledge that any Information posted via social media through the Simpkin & Roses Platform, or via any third party which you allow to access your content, is posted entirely at your own risk and that by posting to a public platform you make that Information visible to third parties who can use that Information at their discretion.
Please note that we do not control, and are not responsible for, other uses of your Information by your third party social media provider(s). We recommend that you review their privacy policies to understand how they collect, use and share your Information, and how you can set your privacy preferences on their sites and apps.
You will be required to give Consent to certain processing activities before we can process your Information. Where applicable, we will seek Consent from you when you first submit Information to or through the Simpkin & Roses Services.
If you have previously given your Consent you may freely withdraw such Consent at any time. You can do this by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you withdraw your Consent, and if we do not have another legal basis for processing your Information, then we will stop processing your Information. If we do have another legal basis for processing your Information, then we may continue to do so subject to your legal rights.
Please note that if we need to process your Information in order for you to use the Simpkin & Roses Services and you object or do not provide Consent to us processing your Information, you accept that the Simpkin & Roses Services will no longer be available to you.
If you have given Consent to marketing we may contact you about our products, services, promotions and special offers. If you no longer wish to receive such Information, you can withdraw your Consent at any time by sending an email to email@example.com or unsubscribing from the communications.
If you have given Consent, we may share your Information with carefully selected third party organisations and business partners and they may contact you directly. If you would prefer to no longer receive direct marketing communications from third parties and partners after previously giving your Consent, please contact those third parties and partners directly to withdraw the Consent.
Where you opt out of receiving marketing messages, this will not apply to personal data provided to us in connection with your purchase of a product or service or your involvement in other related transactions.
You may at any time review or change the Information in your account by logging into your Simpkin & Roses account.
If you wish to terminate your Simpkin & Roses account please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org and we can arrange this for you. Some Information may be retained in our files to prevent fraud, troubleshoot problems, assist with any investigations, enforce our Terms and/or comply with legal requirements.
You have certain rights in relation to the Information that we hold about you. Details of these rights and how to exercise them are set out below. Please note that we will require evidence of your identity before we are able to respond to any requests. This is a security measure to ensure that your Information is not disclosed to a person who does not have the right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further Information in relation to your request to speed up our response. To exercise or discuss any of your rights, please contact us via email@example.com
You may also have the right to restrict our use of your Information, for example during a period in which we are verifying the accuracy of your Information in circumstances where you have challenged the accuracy of that Information.
In such circumstances, you can ask us to transmit your Information to you or directly to a third party organisation on your behalf.
While we are happy for such requests to be made, we are not able to guarantee technical compatibility with a third party organisation’s systems. We are also unable to comply with requests that relate to personal Information of others without their consent.
If we are relying on Consent to process your Information, you have the right to withdraw your Consent at any time. Please note however that this will not affect the lawfulness of the processing that occurred before the withdrawal of such Consent.
We welcome your feedback and questions on this Policy. If you wish to contact us about this Policy or have any other questions, please email us via firstname.lastname@example.org.
You have the right to make a complaint at any time to the Information Commissioner’s Office (the ICO), the UK supervisory authority for data protection issues (https://ico.org.uk/concerns). We would, however, appreciate the chance to deal with your concerns before you approach the ICO, so please contact us in the first instance.
