Why is DARWIN, collecting and processing your information?

We collect and process information about you for several purposes depending on the context of the information and how it was collected:

  • to analyse website usage so we can determine how we can make improvements and if you subscribe to our newsletter, to email you about other directly related products and services we think may be of interest to you based on our understanding of your legitimate interest.
  • to personalise your repeat visits to our website. If you submit your information on a contact form with interest in accessing Services through DARWIN (a trading name of BlueEyed Digital Marketing Ltd).
  • to survey contacts about activity directly related to our marketing activity, service delivery or directly related projects undertaken by DARWIN (a trading name of BlueEyed Digital Marketing Ltd).
  • to provide outsourced services to your company or employing company in line with client agreements made with the company.

How long is your information kept, and can you ensure it is accurate?

DARWIN (a trading name of BlueEyed Digital Marketing Ltd), must retain some information for periods in line with regulatory or legislative requirements. If there is no regulatory or legal requirement to retain your information, then it will be kept until one of the following is true:

  • You request that your data be erased (see the section below), which can be legally fulfilled.
  • The data is known to be or is suspected to be invalid/inaccurate by DARWIN (a trading name of BlueEyed Digital Marketing Ltd).

Can you opt-out of marketing or request for your information to be erased?

DARWIN (a trading name of BlueEyed Digital Marketing Ltd), does not wish to undertake marketing activity towards those who do not wish to receive it, and we will always comply with a request from you to either opt out of marketing. We will comply with a request from you for your information to be erased if it is appropriate to do so (a) in accordance with the Data Protection Act (2018) or the European GDPR requirements and (b) if there is no legitimate justification for retaining the information.

In some cases, we may not be able to agree, wholly or in part, to your request for your information to be erased if there is a legitimate requirement to keep it. An example of a legitimate requirement would be if you are an employee of a company using DARWIN (a trading name of BlueEyed Digital Marketing Ltd), for outsourced services, and you are involved in some way with an issue which is being dealt with by DARWIN (a trading name of BlueEyed Digital Marketing Ltd). In such a case, there is a legitimate requirement to retain relevant information relating to that issue for your employer to be able to resolve the issue and any related legal challenges.
