Legal bases we use

We are governed by English law, and where applicable, European law. The law and regulations on data protection set out a number of reasons whereby a company may collect and process your personal data. We are a registered organisation with the United Kingdom Information Commissoner's Office.

When collecting your personal data, we’ll always make clear to you which data is necessary in connection with a particular service.

Contractual Obligations

In certain circumstances, we need your personal data to comply with our contractual obligations. For example, if you register a domain with us, we’ll collect your name and address details and pass them to the organisation we use to register the domains and by extension the relevant domain registrar.

Legal Compliance

If the law requires us to, we may need to collect and process your data. For example, we need to retain accounting details for accounting and tax compliance.

Legitimate Interest

In specific situations, we require your data to pursue our legitimate interests in a way which might be reasonably expected as part of running our business and which does not impact your rights, freedoms or interests. For example, we may combine the search history of users to identify trends and ensure we can deliver required content or develop new products or services.
