WHY WE COLLECT THIS DATA
Primarily, most of this data is collected as it is necessary for us to deliver our services as a Digital Agency under our contract with you or for taking steps to enter into a contract with you to deliver our services (when enquiring).

We will use your personal data in a variety of ways, including to provide any requested services, and to notify you of any changes.
A secondary purpose for collecting your contact details (name, email address and/or postal address) is so we can send you marketing offers and newsletters, in pursuit of our legitimate interests in marketing activities to existing customers. You can at any time opt to unsubscribe from our marketing.
We may use data from the history of your business relationship with us, and records of your preferences, to send you details of our services which we think will be of interest to you. This will be to personalise your experience and in pursuit of our legitimate interests to improve and promote our services.
