This profiling will use data you have provided directly to us, data we have gathered from the public domain limited to the location of your office, your business or organisational role and the nature of your business or organisation, and data we gather from your behaviour in opening emails, accepting invitations and attending events. You can opt out of this profiling at any time – just contact us and ask either never to be invited or always to be invited.

Who else will see your information? 

We share your information within Securys between our constituent companies. These transfers are protected by our internal data sharing agreement, which incorporates the European Union’s standard contractual clauses. You may request a copy of this agreement by contacting us as set out above. 

We will never sell your data nor provide access to it to any third parties for marketing purposes. We will share your data with our subcontractors because, like many businesses, we don’t do everything ourselves. When we have someone else help us handle an aspect of our business, we will pass them some of your data so that they can do their work. We will only ever give them the minimum information that they need and it will always remain under our control. This means that they can only do with your data what we tell them to, and can’t keep it once they no longer need it or pass it on to anyone else. We vet suppliers who handle confidential information, including personal data, and have contracts with them which require them to protect data appropriately. 

Where legally required to do so we will share your information with other third parties such as our insurers or government agencies and regulators. 

How do we look after your data? 

We take the security of your data very seriously. We are ISO27001:2013 and ISO 27701:2019 certified; these certifications cover our entire organisation.  

We have strict contracts with anyone with whom we share information to ensure they take appropriate care of your data, in line with relevant data protection legislation including but not limited to the General Data Protection Regulation 2016, the UK Data Protection Act 2018, the Jamaican Data Protection Act 2020, the Barbados Data Protection Act 2021 and the amended St Lucia Data Protection Act 2015. 

Personal data can be processed anywhere in our group of companies, safeguarded by our intragroup agreement. 

Your rights 

Your personal data belongs to you. We use it to provide products and services to you, to obey the law and to improve our services.  

Different countries have different laws regarding personal data. Your legal rights will depend on where you live and where we process your data; you can find more details in the relevant country-specific sections below. To make things simple, wherever you live and whatever your relationship with us, we give you the following rights over your data: 


You have the right to a detailed explanation of what data we have about you, how and where we use it, how long we keep it and with whom it is shared. That information is contained in the details of our data processing below. 


You have the right to a copy of the data we hold about you. We will not charge you for providing this information in electronic form; we may charge for providing it on paper to reflect the costs and environmental impact of doing so. We may ask you to prove your identity before we release your data to you. If you want the data for a specific reason, you can help us by letting us know. Please be aware that no-one can force you to get a copy of your data and no-one should ask you to share it with them.  


You have the right to have your data corrected. If you believe we have incomplete or incorrect information about you, please let us know. We may ask you to provide your identity and to provide evidence supporting the changes you would like made.  

“Erasure and the right to be forgotten” 

You have the right to have your data erased if we no longer need it. Note that in many cases we need to retain data about you in order to honour our obligations to you, because we are required to by law, or to protect your and our interests. 

“Review of automated decision making” 

You have the right to a human review of decisions we have made about you by purely automated means. Please note that almost all of our decision-making is already reviewed by a person – we do not use automated decision making. 

“Objection to processing on the basis of legitimate interest” 

You have the right to object to processing of your data where we use it to help us improve our services and develop our business. Technically this is known as processing on the basis of our legitimate interests and there is more information about this processing in the privacy notice. We are required carefully to consider and respond to your objection and show that we have taken care to protect you when doing such processing; you may also require that we do not process your data while we are considering your objection. 

“Restriction of processing” 

You have the right, in certain other circumstances, to require us to stop processing your data. These circumstances are: 

  • Where we disagree about the accuracy of the information we hold about you and while we are verifying that information. 
  • Where we no longer require personal data that we hold about you and would normally erase it, but you wish us to retain it without otherwise processing it, for instance where you believe that you may need the information for your own purposes in a legal claim. 
  • You believe that the processing of your data may cause you substantial harm or distress and that our processing is not justified in accordance with the law. 

“Direct marketing” 

You have the right to opt out of direct marketing. Note that if you do not specify which marketing you no longer wish to receive, we will stop sending you any marketing information. You will need to tell us the email addresses, phone numbers and other relevant details, and you will understand that we will need to keep these details so that we can be sure not to add you back to marketing lists in error. You also, of course, have the right to opt back into marketing at any time. 

“Data portability” 

In some circumstances you have the right to ask us to transfer your data to another service provider directly. This can only be done where it is technically possible both for us and for the other service provider; we and they will let you know when this is the case. 

“Withdrawal of consent” 

Most of our processing of your data is performed for one of three reasons: 

  • in service of a contract between you and us, or in order to enter into such a contract; 
  • to comply with legal obligations placed on us by the government and our regulators; or 
  • to help us improve our services by better understanding our customers and their needs. 

However, in some cases we will ask you for your consent to processing. Where we have done so, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time and we will stop processing. We will explain the consequences of withdrawing consent at the time we ask for it and when you ask to withdraw it. 

If you would like to know more about our processing of your data or would like to exercise any of your rights, you can email us at
