Information we may collect from you 

We may ask you to provide certain information about yourself when you use our website or are in contact with us about the products we provide (whether it is by telephone, email via the forms on our website, through applications or platforms we use, through our social media platforms or even face to face). By providing us with your data you warrant that you are over 13 years of age.

There are two distinct groups considered within this statement:

  1. Customers and prospective customers.
  2. Suppliers and Professional Advisers.

1. In respect of customers and prospective customers (including those who view our website or make enquiries about our products and/or services) the personal information collected may include: 

The personal information we hold about you will be held solely for the following purposes:

We are subject to the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulations (“GDPR”) that protect your personal data. Our legal basis under UK GDPR for processing your data is either performance of a contract with you, legal obligation or that such processing is in our legitimate interests in respect of running our organisation including developing our services, ensuring security and performance of our website and informing our overall marketing strategy.

We may also receive data about you from third parties such as Google analytics or advertising networks such as Facebook both of whom are based outside of the UK and from providers of technical, payment and delivery services.

2. In respect of suppliers and professional advisers (which also includes prospective suppliers and business contacts) personal information collected may include:

The personal information we hold about suppliers and professional advisers will be held solely for the following purposes:

To administer or maintain records of the services or advice we receive from you including transaction and financial details about services we have requested or received from you and payments which are due in respect of those services.

Our legal basis under UK GDPR for processing your data is that such processing is required in connection with fulfilling our legal obligations and is in our legitimate interests in respect of running our business including developing our services, ensuring security and performance of our website and informing our overall marketing strategy.

 

Sensitive Data 

In respect of both groups, we will generally not collect sensitive data from you via our website. Sensitive data is personal information which includes your racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, or trade union membership, genetic or biometric data, or information concerning your health or mental wellbeing or sexual orientation. Much of the additional specific information referred to above will be sensitive data. Given the nature of the products and services we sell it is extremely unlikely that we will require to collect any sensitive data about you. Where we do require to process such sensitive data to provide services to you, we will notify you in advance and will request your express consent in writing to process such sensitive data.

If you do not wish us to collect any of the personal information stated above, you should discuss this with us. We can explain the reasons for collection and discuss the consequences of not providing the information or of providing partial or incomplete information and the effect this may have on our ability to provide our services. 

Marketing Information 

We may provide you with information on products that we sell. In order to optimise your customer experience with you this may include emails to you to update you on our latest offers and events. We may also show you content via social media platforms and other external applications such as Facebook and Instagram. This is regarded as a marketing activity. Our lawful ground of processing your data for marketing communications is either your consent or our legitimate interests. 

We will only market to you where you have:

If you have opted out of marketing, we will not send you any future marketing without your consent. 

Each time we market to you we will always give you the right to opt out of any future marketing by using the simple “unsubscribe” link in emails.  We would point out that you have the right at any time to ask us not to market to you by emailing us at privacy@run4it.com  rather than waiting on a specific opt out.

How long we hold information for

We will only retain your personal information for as long as is necessary in line with the purposes for which it was originally requested or collected or where we are required to do so for some legal or reporting purpose.

In working out how long we retain personal data we look at the type of personal data involved, the purpose of processing, how sensitive or confidential the data is and at legal and commercial considerations including any legal obligations we have. By way of example, by law we are required to keep accounting records for six years after the end of the year in which the last transaction occurred. This means that we will be required to keep some basic customer details for that purpose even although our relationship with you may be at an end. However, it should be noted that the requirement is basic customer details and therefore it is not legitimate to also keep information such as your preferences for that period of time.

In case of services requiring payment, any payment account information (including where applicable card details) requested from you will be used solely for processing payments. All direct payment gateways adhere to the latest security standards as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council and scans for malware are performed on a regular basis for additional security and protection. Your purchase transaction data is stored only for as long as is necessary to complete your purchase transaction. After that is complete, your purchase transaction information is deleted. 

In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal data for research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you. 

If you have any questions relating to either retention periods or require more detail on the purposes of processing or the specific reason or legal grounds, we are relying on for that processing then please contact privacy@run4it.com for additional information.

Overseas Transfers

We would point out that countries outside of the UK do not always have similar levels of protection for personal data as those inside the UK. The law provides that transfers of personal data in respect of UK based individuals outside of the UK is only permitted where the recipient country has adequate safeguards in place for the protection of personal data.  Some types of processing may use cloud solutions which can mean information may sometimes be held on servers which are located outside of the UK or they may use processors who are based overseas. 

Where we use cloud-based services or third-party providers of such services and in either or both circumstances the data is processed outside of the UK if you are a UK based individual that will be regarded as an overseas transfer. Before instigating an overseas transfer, we will ensure that the recipient country and/or processor has security standards at least equivalent to UK GDPR standards and, in particular, one of the following permitted safeguards applies: 

If none of these safeguards exist, then we may seek your explicit consent for an overseas transfer. In line with your rights as an individual you are free to withdraw this consent at any time.
