Data security  

We have put in place measures to protect the security of your information. Details of these measures are available  upon request.  

Third parties will only process your personal information on our instructions and where they have agreed to treat the  information confidentially and to keep it secure.  

We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal information from being accidentally  lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal  information to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They  will only process your personal information on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.  Details of these measures may be obtained from info@tewktech.com  

We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected data security breach and will notify you and any  applicable regulator of a suspected breach where we are legally required to do so.  

Data retention  

How long do we keep hold of your information? 

We will only retain your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for,  including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. Details of retention periods  for different aspects of your personal information are available in our data protection policy which is available from  Tewktech. To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and  sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data,  the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other  means, and the applicable legal requirements.


 In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal information so that it can no longer be associated with you,  in which case we may use such information without further notice to you.  

Your rights in connection with personal information 

Under certain circumstances, by law you have the right to:  

 Request access to your personal information (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This  enables you to receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully  processing it.  

 Request correction of the personal information that we hold about you. This enables you to have any  incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected.  

 Request erasure of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal  information where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to  delete or remove your personal information where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see  below).  

 Object to processing of your personal information where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a  third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to  processing on this ground. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal  information for direct marketing purposes.  

 Request the restriction of processing of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to suspend the  processing of personal information about you, for example if you want us to establish its accuracy or the  reason for processing it.  

 Request the transfer of your personal information to another party.  

If you want to review, verify, correct or request erasure of your personal information, object to the processing of your  personal data, or request that we transfer a copy of your personal information to another party, please contact us on  info@tewktech.com  

No fee usually required 

You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal information (or to exercise any of the other rights). However,  we may charge a reasonable fee if your request for access is clearly unfounded or excessive. Alternatively, we may  refuse to comply with the request in such circumstances.  

What we may need from you 

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to  access the information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is another appropriate security measure to  ensure that personal information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.


Keeping our records up to date 

Where possible we use publicly available sources to keep your records up to date; for example, the Post Office’s  National Change of Address database and information provided to us by other organisations as described above.  

It is important that the personal information we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if  your personal information changes during your working relationship with us  

If you have any questions please send these to info@tewktech.com For further information see the Information  Commissioner’s guidance .  

We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. If we make any significant changes in the way we treat your  personal information we will make this clear on the Tewktech website or by contacting you directly.
