Our legal basis for processing personal data
Our legal basis for processing your personal data may rely upon our Legitimate Interest or Legal Obligation.
As a data subject on which we process personal data, you have various rights that you can exercise:
Recordsure relies upon the following legal bases for processing the personal data obtained from the practices outlined in Personal Data we Collect.
‘Legitimate Interest’ means the interests of our company in conducting and managing our business to enable us to give you the best services and experience. For example, we have an interest in making sure our services are relevant for you, so we may process your personal data to contact you by telephone with discussions tailored to your interests.
When we process your personal information for our legitimate interests, we make sure to consider the balance and any potential impact on you (both positive and negative) and your rights under the data protection regulation. Our legitimate business interests do not automatically override your interests – we will not use your personal data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent or are otherwise required or permitted to by law).
Our legitimate business interests may include some or all of the following:
- For evidential purposes to effectively manage and maintain records of our relationships/communications with you;
- For business development related activity such as contacting you by telephone or email to arrange meetings with our experts in relation to work or knowledge sharing;
- To enhance, modify, personalise or otherwise improve our services and communications for the benefit of you;
- To better understand how you interact with our website and content in order to enhance your customer experience;
- To determine the effectiveness of promotional campaigns to inform marketing strategy.
Recipients of Personal Data
When Recordsure uses third party systems to process data, the data storage and processing systems are protected by access controls, to minimise any risk to the integrity or security of your personal data, and the data is stored in servers in the UK, EU and USA. Third-party systems are used in:
- Business development
- Customer delivery
To request a list of third parties supporting these categories, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Recordsure will ensure that any third-party processor has adequate data protection measures in place that align with the requirements of the GDPR by conducting periodic due diligence. Recordsure will not share your data with any third-party processor outside the UK, EU or USA.
Recordsure does not sell your personal data or other information to any third party.
Recordsure stores personal information on a secure database, which is shared with our associated company TCC.
Although data is stored centrally, all communication is segmented between the two separate companies. For example, signing up to either mailing list will provide content from the relevant company, and subscribers can opt-in or out of the respective mailing lists on an individual basis. We may, on occasion, share content between companies when we believe the information will be relevant and valuable.
Once Recordsure has received your information, Recordsure is committed to ensuring it has all necessary technical and organisational controls in place to keep your information secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, Recordsure has put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information Recordsure collects.
Recordsure will only keep your personal data for as long as necessary for the purposes for which it was gained. Personal data will be retained for the purposes of direct marketing, relationship management and business development, or where we have another legal basis for processing (such as your consent or a contract with you). Recordsure will review the personal data we hold on you every 12 months to check for accuracy and relevancy, and to ensure that we continue to have a legal basis for processing. If the personal data is no longer necessary or where we no longer have the legal basis for processing, we will delete or fully anonymise the data we hold on you, in line with our GDPR Policy. If your data becomes inaccurate, we will update it accordingly.
The exception is information collected from surveys, feedback and questionnaires, which are held only for the duration of its usefulness i.e. the duration of a campaign. The data is then anonymised and retained for internal evidential purposes, or deleted.
Recordsure will help you should you have any complaints about the processing of your personal data. Under the GDPR, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the Supervisory Authority, the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), who are the national authority responsible for the protection of personal data. A complaint can be made to the ICO via their website: ico.org.uk or through their helpline: 0303 123 1113.

We reserve the right to change this statement. Changes will be published on our website https://recordsure.com/privacy-policy and previous versions will continue to be available here. We will notify you of any material changes to this statement via email (where possible) but recommend that you also check this statement regularly so that you are informed of any changes.
