We may also add your contact information to other cloud platforms we use to manage customer relationships.

In the event that we sell or negotiate to sell Creative ITC to a buyer or prospective buyer, personal data held by us about our clients/prospects will be one of the transferred assets.

International Transfers


It is unlikely that we will ever share your personal data outside the UK or European Union (EU) or European Economic Area (EEA). If, however, it becomes necessary for the purposes of providing our services to you, we will only share it with organisations located in countries based on the UK adequacy regulations or benefiting from a European Commission adequacy decision or on the basis of Standard Contractual Clauses approved by the European Commission or the IDTA approved UK government.

How do we keep your personal data safe?


Our ISMS (information security management system) is certified to ISO/IEC 27001. We are also Cyber Essentials Plus certified.


All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure, and although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site – any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. Such personnel will only process your personal data on our instructions, and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.





How long do we keep your personal data?


We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

Your rights


Under the Data Protection Legislation, you have rights in respect of your personal data, and these depend on the reason why we are processing your information. These rights are the rights to:


  • Request accessto your personal data (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
  • Request correctionof the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.
  • Request erasureof your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with applicable law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.
  • Object to processingof your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.
  • Request restriction of processingof your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios: (a) if you want us to establish the data’s accuracy; (b) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (c) where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (d) you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.
  • Request the transferof your personal data to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.
  • Withdraw consentat any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.


Please contact us at (or by using any other of the contact methods detailed at page 1 of this Privacy Notice) if you’d like to exercise any of the rights set out above.

Any terms defined in the CCPA have the same meaning when used in this notice.

This section applies to “Personal Information”, which is defined in the CCPA as information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household. This section does not address or apply to our handling of Personal Information that is exempt under the CCPA, such as publicly available information or deidentified or aggregated information.

Categories of Personal Information We Collect and Disclose. The following bullet points identify the categories of Personal Information we may collect about you, or have collected in the prior 12 months, as enumerated by the CCPA:

In accordance with our retention policies, rather than delete your Personal Information we may also deidentify your Personal Information in compliance with CCPA.

Disclosure of Personal Information to Third Parties and Other Recipients.  The categories of third parties and other recipients to whom we may have disclosed this information for a business or commercial purpose are set out at the “who do we share your personal data with” section of this Privacy Notice at page 4.

Sales and Sharing of Personal Information. The CCPA defines “sale” as disclosing or making available Personal Information to a third-party in exchange for monetary or other valuable consideration, and “sharing” includes disclosing or making available Personal Information to a third-party for purposes of cross-contextual behavioural advertising.
