Privacy

6. How and why do we use your personal data?

The data you provide will be available and used by Beta:

  • To fulfil our services and improve our services/website.
  • Maintain internal records, including those required by law (e.g. HMRC requirements).
  • To protect our business from fraud and other illegal activities.
7. How do we store and protect your information?

Data may be stored in both electronic and hard copy. We are committed to ensuring that your data is secure and to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect.

We operate a secure IT network and our offices are kept locked and alarmed when vacant.  Electronic data is protected internally by passwords and limited access, and hard copy data such as financial or HR information is retained in locked cabinets with restricted access.   We also check the security arrangements if we store data elsewhere e.g. offsite storage, bank.

8. How long do we keep your information?

Whenever we collect or process your personal data, we will only keep it for as long as is necessary for the purpose for which it was collected. At the end of that retention period your data will be deleted completely.

9. Who will we share your information with?

We sometimes share your personal data with trusted third parties and suppliers, e.g. sub-contractors such as web developers, media production companies, associates, delivery companies etc.  All sub-contractors providing a service to us and/or to our customers on our behalf will be under contract and will be required to collect and process any personal data in line with our Data Protection Policy.

Our website may contain links to other websites of interest. However, once you have used these links to leave our site, you should note that we do not have any control over that other website. Therefore, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting such sites and such sites are not governed by this privacy statement. You should exercise caution and look at the privacy notice applicable to the website in question. Links to other websites do not constitute any endorsement by Beta of the information or products presented on that website.

10. Where may we process your personal data?

Sometimes we will need to share your personal data with third parties and suppliers outside the European Economic Area (EEA).  If we do this, we have procedures in place to ensure your data receives the same protection as if it were being processed inside the EEA. For example, our contracts with third parties stipulate the standards they must always follow.

11. Your rights

You have the right to request:

  • Access to the personal data we hold about you.
  • The correction of your personal data when incorrect, out of date or incomplete.
  • The deletion of the data we hold about you, in specific circumstances.
  • The restriction of the use of your personal data, in specific circumstance.
  • That we stop processing your personal data, in specific circumstances.
  • That we stop any consent-based processing of your personal data after you withdraw that consent.
  • Data portability.

A withdrawal of consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing based on consent before its withdrawal.

In cases where we are processing your personal data on the basis of our legitimate interest, you can ask us to stop for reasons connected to your individual situation. We must then do so unless we believe we have a legitimate overriding reason to continue processing your personal data.

You can request to exercise these rights at any time by contacting us at:

To protect the confidentiality of your information, we will ask you to verify your identity before proceeding with any request you make under this Privacy Notice. If you have authorised a third party to submit a request on your behalf, we will ask them to prove they have your permission to act.
