Our legal basis for processing personal data 

UK GDPR requires that we have valid grounds for processing your personal data. The main grounds that we rely on in order to process personal data are as follows: 

- the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract, or to take steps (at your request) to enter into a contract; 

- the processing is necessary for us to comply with a relevant legal obligation; 

- the processing is in our legitimate interests, subject to due consideration for your interests and fundamental rights (this is the basis we rely upon for the majority of the processing of personal data in connection with the provision of our Services, and also for the purposes of most client onboarding, administration and relationship management activities); or 

- on the basis of your consent (this ground will only be used in limited circumstances). 

Where we process your personal data on the basis of your consent, you have the right to withdraw that consent at any time. If you wish to withdraw your consent, please see the “Contact” section below. 

Who we will share personal data with 

We may share personal data with our trusted third party suppliers in connection with the Services we provide, including for internal administration purposes. We may also share your personal data with third parties as reasonably required in order for us to undertake the services which you have instructed us to undertake. 

We may also be required to share your data: 

- with a regulatory body or as required by law; 

- in relation to the prevention and/or detection of crime; 

- to establish legal rights or to investigate or pursue legal claims;

- to prevent risk of harm to an individual. 


We will use reasonable endeavors to make sure that all third parties we share your data with are subject to appropriate obligations to ensure the protection of the data that we share with them. 

Transfer of your data outside of the UK and/or European Economic Area (“EEA”) 

We may sometimes use third party data processors that are located outside of the United Kingdom and European Economic Area (“the EEA”) (The EEA consists of all EU member states, plus Norway, Iceland, and Liechtenstein). Where we transfer any personal data outside the EEA, we will take all reasonable steps to ensure that your data is treated as safely and securely as it would be within the UK under the data protection legislation including:

- We will retain your contact details for 36 months if you have enquired about our products or services thereafter, they will be deleted;

Your rights in relation to your personal data 

You have certain rights in relation to your personal data that we process. In order to validate any request that we receive to exercise those rights, we may ask you for additional information to confirm your identity before complying with your request or we may otherwise require additional information from you in order to respond to the request. We reserve the right to charge a fee for complying with a request where we are permitted to do so by law, for instance if your request is manifestly unfounded or excessive. 

You can exercise your rights by contacting us (see the “Contact” section). We will make every reasonable effort to comply with your request within the required timeframes, but there are circumstances where we may not be able, or required, to fully comply with your request. 

Right to Access: You have the right to access personal data which Flying Fox Limited holds about you, together with certain information about how and why your personal data is processed. 

Right to Rectification: You have a right to request us to correct your personal data where it is inaccurate or out of date. 

Right to be Forgotten (Right to Erasure): You have the right under certain circumstances to have your personal data erased. Your information can only be erased if it is no longer necessary for the purpose for which it was collected, and we have no other valid basis for processing the information. 

Right to Restrict Processing: You have the right to restrict the processing of your personal data where its accuracy is contested, the processing is unlawful, it is no longer needed for the purposes for which it was collected but we still need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims, or you have exercised the right to object and we have not yet established if there are any overriding grounds for retention. 

Right to Data Portability: In certain circumstances you have the right to data portability, which requires us to provide personal data to you or another controller in a commonly used, machine readable format. 

Right to Object to Processing: You have the right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time, but only where that processing is based on our legitimate interests. If you raise an objection, we have an opportunity to demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate interests which override your rights and freedoms. 

We ensure that you are provided with opt-out options when we send you any marketing.  To exercise any of the abovementioned rights, please see the “Contact” section. In addition, you may also have the legal right to make a complaint to the relevant supervisory authority or local data protection authority. In the UK, this is the Information Commissioner’s Office. 

Information Security: We implement reasonable technical and organisational measures and safeguards to protect personal data from unauthorised loss, misuse, alteration, or destruction. This includes access limitation to systems, limiting access to your personal data on a "need to know" basis, and providing training to appropriate Flying Fox Limited staff. Despite these efforts, security cannot be absolutely guaranteed against all threats.
