What is the Legal Basis for Processing Data?
We send information on the basis of legitimate interest. We do not need consent for this, but ensure that people have an easy way to opt out of any communications.
Our employee data is managed on the basis of Legitimate Interest and Contract of Employment. Processing data is required for carrying out responsibilities under Employment Law. We process data on behalf of our clients under that same basis.

We comply with the requirements of COPPA (Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act). We will not intentionally collect any information from anyone under the age of 13 years old. Our website and services are all directed to people who are at least 13 years of age or older.

When we need your consent to use your personal data
We always want you to be aware of how we are using your personal data. However, this does not necessarily mean that we are required to ask for your consent before we can use it. In the day-to-day running of our business we may use your personal data without asking for your consent because:

• We are entering into and carrying out our obligations under a contract with you.

• We need to use your personal data for our own legitimate purposes (such as the management and administration of our business and the improvement of our services etc) and our doing so will not interfere with your privacy rights.

In exceptional circumstances we may wish to use your personal data for a different purpose which does require your consent. In these circumstances we will contact you to explain how we wish to use your data and to ask for your consent. You are not required to give consent simply because we ask for it. If you do give consent you are able to change your mind and withdraw it at a later date.

You are not under a legal obligation to provide us with any of your personal data but please note that if you elect not to provide us with your personal data we may be unable to reasonably provide our products and services to you.

Storing your personal data
Your data will be stored in our database and may be accessible by employees of MOOi Architecture Ltd where it is necessary for them to do so in order to undertake their duties relating to business matters. It may also be stored on our secure accountancy software package.

We take substantial measures to ensure there is no unauthorised access to any of our information or databases, and utilise a range of physical, electronic and administrative safeguards to protect this information as well as our computers, systems, and email accounts.

We keep your personal data for no longer than reasonably necessary, but may be for a period of up to 12 years beyond the end of a contract under seal, where details need to be kept for 12 years for legal purposes, including warranties.

In the unlikely event of a data breach we shall endeavour to inform individuals if we think their rights are affected. We will aim to notify anyone affected and, if applicable the Information Commissioners Office (ICO), within 72 hours of becoming aware.
