Security

We take your privacy very seriously and work hard to protect your data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent this from happening. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, volunteers, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

For example:

  • where appropriate, data is encrypted when transiting on our system or stored on our databases;
  • we have implemented safeguards in relation to access and confidentiality in order to protect the information held within our systems; and
  • we frequently carry out risk assessments and audits to monitor and review threats and vulnerabilities to our systems to prevent fraud.

However, while we will do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your information which is transmitted via an internet or similar connection. It is important that all details of any username, password and/or other identification information created to access our servers are kept confidential by you and should not be disclosed to or shared with anyone. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent your data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed.

International transfers

Certain countries in which recipients and data processors may be located and to which your information may be transferred may not have the same level of protection of personal data as the one afforded in the UK and EEA. Personal data transferred to countries outside of the UK and / or EEA will be protected by appropriate safeguards, such as standard contractual clauses approved by the European Commission, to ensure that the level of data protection afforded in the UK and the EEA is not undermined. You may obtain a copy of such safeguards implemented by Argyll by contacting us using the details provided above.

  • request erasure/right to be forgotten: the right to withdraw your consent to our processing of the data (if the legal basis for processing is based on your consent) and the right to request that we delete or erase your personal information from our systems (however, this will not apply if we are required to hold on to the information for compliance with any legal obligation or if we require the information to establish or defend any legal claim); and
  • request restriction of use of your information: the right to stop us from using your personal information or limit the way in which we can use it; and
  • request data portability: the right to request that we return any information you have provided in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format, or that we send it directly to another company, where technically feasible; and

To exercise one of the above rights, please contact us using the details provided above.

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights).
