HOW JUST ACCOUNTANCY USES YOUR PERSONAL DATA

WHY JUST ACCOUNTANCY PROCESSES PERSONAL DATA

We intend to use your personal data on legal grounds on which we will process such data.  We may process your personal data for more than one lawful ground, depending on the specific purpose for which we are using your data.

Please email us at contact@justaccountancy.co.uk if you need details about the specific legal grounds for processing.

Marketing communications

 

You will only receive marketing communications from us if you have:

  • requested information from us or purchased goods or services from us; and

  • you have opted to receive marketing communications.

We will never share your personal data with any third party for marketing purposes.

You can ask us to stop sending you marketing messages at any time by emailing us at contact@justaccountancy.co.uk

Where you do not opt in to receiving our marketing communications, we may still hold your personal data if it is required to be held for another purpose.

Change of purpose

 

We will only use your personal data for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose.

If we need to use your personal data for a purpose unrelated to the purpose for which we collected the data, we will notify you and we will explain the legal ground of processing.

We may process your personal data without your knowledge or consent where this is required or permitted by law.

DISCLOSURES OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA TO OTHERS

Unless specifically requested otherwise, your data may be shared internally and we may have to share your personal data with the parties set out below:

  • HM Revenue & Customs – for the administration of your tax affairs

  • Companies House – for the administration of your duties under company law

  • Intuit QuickBooks – Accounting software

  • Brightpay – Payroll software

  • OCRex AutoEntry – Data entry software

  • TaxFiler – Tax filing software

  • Accountancy Manager – Practice Management Software

  • Institute of Certified Bookkeepers – Supervision of Anti-Money Laundering compliance

We may also disclose personal data to other third parties where we are required to in order to comply with our legal obligations, such as Anti-Money Laundering legislation.

We hold some data on cloud servers, such as Google Drive.

We require all third parties to whom we transfer your data to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law.

 

International Transfers

 

Countries outside of the European Economic Area (EEA) do not always offer the same levels of protection to your personal data, so European law has prohibited transfers of personal data outside of the EEA unless the transfer meets certain criteria.

Whilst we make the effort to work with suppliers based in the EEA, some of our third-party service providers are based outside the EEA so their processing of your personal data may involve a transfer of data outside the EEA.

Whenever we use a suppler who operates outside the EEA, we do our best to ensure a similar degree of security of data by ensuring the following safeguards is implemented:

  • We use providers that are also GDPR compliant and have privacy policies which recognise the requirements of European law and have in place safeguards for information transferred outside the EEA;

  • Where we use providers based in the United States, we may transfer data to them if they are part of the EU-US Privacy Shield which requires them to provide similar protection to personal data shared between the Europe and the US.

If none of the above safeguards is available, we may request your explicit consent to the specific transfer. You will have the right to withdraw this consent at any time.

DATA SECURITY

Bitdefender is installed on all PC’s and laptops as appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed.

IT equipment is encrypted to ensure that data on it is secure in the event of loss or theft.

We limit access to your personal data to those internal parties who have a business need to know such data. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

Procedures are in place to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.

Notification will take place as soon as feasibly possible following the discovery of the breach and in all cases within 72 hours.

LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES

Our website and newsletters may contain links to other websites of interest. However, once you have used these links to leave our site, you should note that we do not have any control over other websites. Therefore, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting such sites and such sites are not governed by this privacy statement. You should exercise caution and look at the privacy statement applicable to the website in question.

DATA RETENTION

We will only retain your personal data 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.

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.

By law we have to keep basic information about our customers (including Contact, Identity, Financial and Transaction Data) for six years after they cease being customers for tax purposes.

In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your data.

Right to restrict processing

Under certain other circumstances, where the lawful basis of our processing is legitimate interest, you may have the right to object to the processing of your data.

Rights relating to automated decision making
