Your privacy and trust are important to us.  It also provides information about your rights and about how you can contact us if you have questions about how we handle your information.

This Privacy Policy #10 is dated 1/1/2021, it having been revised when EU GDPR was superseded by UK GDPR (UK GDPR supplemented by the Data Protection Act 2018).  It sets out how we, ClearView Financial Media Ltd, collect, store and use information about you when you use or interact with our websites and where we otherwise obtain or collect information about you.

For ease of reference, this Privacy Policy is divided in two: a summary privacy policy and the full privacy policy.

Generally, we do not receive information about you from third parties.

It is also possible that third parties with whom we have had no prior contact may provide us with information about you.

Information we obtain from third parties will generally be your name and contact details, but will include any additional information about you which they provide to us.

Legal basis for processing: necessary to perform a contract.

Reason why necessary to perform a contract: where you have entered into a contract or requested that we enter into a contract with you.

Legal basis for processing: consent.
Consent: where you have asked that a third party to share information about you with us and the purpose of sharing that information is not related to the performance of a contract or services by us to you, we will process your information on the basis of your consent, which you give by asking the third party in question to pass your information on to us.

Legal basis for processing: our legitimate interests.
Legitimate interests: where a third party has shared information about you with us and you have not consented to the sharing of that information, we will have a legitimate interest in processing that information in certain circumstances.

For example, we would have a legitimate interest in processing your information to perform our obligations under a sub-contract with the third-party, where the third-party has the main contract with you. Our legitimate interest is the performance of our obligations under our sub-contract.

Similarly, third parties may pass on information about you to us if you have infringed or potentially infringed any of our legal rights. In this case, we will have a legitimate interest in processing that information to investigate and pursue any such potential infringement.

Information obtained by us from third-parties
In certain circumstances (for example, to verify the information we hold about you or obtain missing information we require to provide you with a service) we will obtain information about you from certain publicly accessible sources, such as Companies House, online customer databases, business directories, media publications, social media, and websites (including your own website if you have one). We may do this, for example, if we have insufficient information to be able to contact you or to better understand your business.

Legal basis for processing: necessary to perform a contract or to take steps at your request to enter into a contract.
Reason why necessary to perform a contract: where you have entered into a contract or requested that we enter into a contract with you, in certain circumstances, we will obtain information about you from public sources in order to enable us to understand your business and provide services to you or services to a sufficient standard.

For example, we would obtain and/or verify your email address from your website or from a directory where you ask us to send you information by email but we do not possess the information or we need to confirm that we have recorded your email address correctly.

Legal basis for processing: our legitimate interests.
Legitimate interests: in certain circumstances, we will have a legitimate interest in obtaining information about you from public and private sources. For example, if you have infringed or we suspect that you have infringed any of our legal rights, we will have a legitimate interest in obtaining and processing information about you from such sources in order to investigate and pursue any suspected or potential infringement.

Disclosure and additional uses of your information
This section sets out the circumstances in which we will disclose information about you to third parties and any additional purposes for which we use your information.

Where operationally necessary the business will utilise cloud-based services. Where we do so, data may be held and with at least the equivalent data protection afforded by non-cloud providers.

Examples of cloud-based services may be:

– Survey Monkey (for research projects).  Information shared with this operator will be anonymised and contact data collected by Clearview ( and or a research Partner) only where the respondent leaves his/her details as part of a prize draw or for further information about a product or service.  This contact information will be passed to the Partner with consent of the respondent.

– Google Gmail for email transmission

– Google Docs for storage of files in a series of secure folders

Your information will be shared with these service providers only where necessary to enable us to run our business.

Disclosure of your information for legal reasons
Indicating possible criminal acts or threats to public security to a competent authority
If we suspect that criminal or potential criminal conduct has occurred, we will in certain circumstances need to contact an appropriate authority, such as the police. This could be the case, for instance, if we suspect that a fraud or a cyber crime has been committed or if we receive threats or malicious communications towards us or third-parties.

We will generally only need to process your information for this purpose if you were involved or affected by such an incident in some way.

Legal basis for processing: our legitimate interests.
Legitimate interests: preventing crime or suspected criminal activity (such as fraud).

In connection with the enforcement or potential enforcement of our legal rights we will use your information in connection with the enforcement or potential enforcement of our legal rights, including sharing information with debt collection agencies if you do not pay amounts owed to us when you are contractually obliged to do so. Our legal rights may be contractual (where we have entered into a contract with you) or non-contractual (such as legal rights that we have under copyright law or tort law).

Legal basis for processing: our legitimate interests.
Legitimate interest: enforcing our legal rights and taking steps to enforce our legal rights.

In connection with a legal or potential legal dispute or proceedings

Legal basis for processing: compliance with a legal obligation.
Legal obligation(s): legal obligations to disclose information which are part of the laws of England and Wales or if they have been integrated into the United Kingdom’s legal framework (for example in the form of an international agreement which the United Kingdom has signed).

Legal basis for processing: our legitimate interests.

Where we make minor changes to our Privacy Policy, we will update our Privacy Policy with a new effective date stated at the beginning of it. Our processing of your information will be governed by the practices set out in that new version of the Privacy Policy from its effective date onwards.

Major changes to our Privacy Policy
Where we make major changes to our Privacy Policy or intend to use your information for a new purpose or a different purpose than the purposes for which we originally collected it, we will notify you by email (where possible) or by posting a notice on our website.

We will provide you with the information about the change in question and the purpose and any other relevant information before we use your information for that new purpose.

Wherever required, we will obtain your prior consent before using your information for a purpose that is different from the purposes for which we originally collected it, except where the data processing is compatible with the original purpose.

Because we care about the safety and privacy of children online, we comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA). COPPA and its accompanying regulations protect the privacy of children using the internet. We do not knowingly contact or collect information from persons under the age of 18. The website is not intended to solicit information of any kind from persons under the age of 18.

It is possible that we could receive information pertaining to persons under the age of 18 by the fraud or deception of a third party. If we are notified of this, as soon as we verify the information, we will, where required by law to do so, immediately obtain the appropriate parental consent to use that information or, if we are unable to obtain such parental consent, we will delete the information from our servers.
