The data we collect

Personal data, or personal information, means any information about an individual from which that person can be identified. It does not include data where the identity has been removed (i.e. anonymous data).

We may collect, use, store and transfer different kinds of personal data about you from a number of different sources, including:

  • Information that you provide to us when you complete our online forms, or sign up to our newsletter;
  • Information about the services we provide to you;
  • Information provided to us by third parties, including organisations with whom you are engaged or employed; and
  • Information we automatically collect about your visits to our website to enable us to maintain and improve our services and website;
  • Marketing and Communications Data including your preferences in receiving marketing from us and your communication preferences.

In addition to information that we collect where we are in control, we may also collect information on behalf of third parties. We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes and only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.

How we use your personal data

We will only use your personal data when the law allows us to. We use your personal data for a number of different lawful purposes including:

  • To provide information and services to you, or your Organisation under the terms of a contract with you;
  • For our legitimate business interests to maintain and improve our website and services including analysis to develop and improve our research and consultancy. Where possible we use this information in an anonymous and aggregated form to protect your privacy;
  • To comply with any legal obligations that we may have; and/or
  • Our legitimate interests to keep in touch with you for marketing purposes and let you know about developments in the field of business psychology

In order to protect your privacy, we do not routinely share personal data with third parties. However we may share your personal data with:

  • Our suppliers and contractors who enable us to provide the website and our newsletter and materials;
  • Our third party partners for analysis and reporting, and where possible we try to do this with anonymous information; and/or;
  • If we have a legal duty or obligation to disclose your personal information.


We may also use your personal information to contact you to advise you of other services that may be of interest to you.

We have a legitimate interest in using your personal data for promotional purposes (see above: ‘How we use your personal data’). This means we do not usually need your consent to send you marketing information. However, where consent is required, we will ask for your consent clearly and separately.

You have the right to opt out and request that we do not use your personal data for marketing. You can exercise this right at any time by contacting us at  Further, if you choose not to receive marketing information, we may still contact you to advise you of changes to our website, or security concerns or where permitted by law.

Where your personal data is stored

Personal data may be held at our offices and those of our third party agencies and service providers as described above (see above: ‘How we use your personal data’).

We will not transfer your data outside of the UK/EEA.

Protection of your information

The information you provide will be kept confidential.  We have in place administrative, technical and physical measures on our website and internally designed to guard against and minimise the risk of loss, misuse or unauthorised processing, alteration or disclosure of the personal information that we hold. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

We do not store your information longer than reasonably necessary in order to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, or to ensure we have appropriate and auditable records.  We generally hold appropriate records for the duration of your engagement with Work Psychology Group and for up to 2 years after (unless agreed otherwise). We may retain your personal data for a longer period in the event of a complaint or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation in respect to our relationship with you.

To determine the appropriate retention period for your personal data, we will 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, regulatory, tax, accounting or other requirements.

When we deem it to be no longer necessary to keep your personal data, we will delete or anonymise it.
