When Wrisk asks you to provide certain information, or obtain certain information by which you can be identified, rest assured that your information will only be used in accordance with this policy.
We acknowledge and agree that we will safeguard your personal data in line with the Data Protection Act 1998 and with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) by the time it is legally enforced on 25 May 2018.
Wrisk Limited and its wholly owned subsidiary Wrisk Transfer Limited are collectively known as Wrisk, a trading style of Wrisk Limited. This policy applies to both entities as Joint Data Controllers.
When you visit our website, we use third party analytics services to record information about your visit in ways which can be both personally identifiable and unidentifiable.
If, when you visit our website, you choose to give us your email address, we use a third party email service to subscribe you to our mailing list. You can unsubscribe from our mailing list easily at any time through a link.
We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. Google Analytics sets cookies in order to evaluate your use of our website and compile reports for us on activity on it.
Google stores the information collected by the cookies on servers in the United States. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.

As the data subject you have rights to the information we hold on you. These are as follows:
If you would like to exercise any of these rights then please contact our Data Protection Officer, Caroline Garrow, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
When making a request for access, correction or erasure your request should be accompanied by sufficient identification and by any information that is reasonably necessary to locate the personal data sought.
Once we received a request for access and/or correction we will respond to that request within one month after the request is made. In instances when we have received a large number of requests it may take an additional 2 months.
Please also contact Caroline if you wish to make a complaint about how we have handled your data and if you feel that we have used your data not in accordance to the law then you can complain to the Information Commissioner’s Office at ico.org.uk.
We will not sell or rent your information to third parties and will not share your information with third parties for marketing purposes.
We do use third party service providers who work on our behalf to process your information for the purpose we have contractually agreed with them. Please note that they do not have express permission to access your information for their own purposes.
All the personal data we have is stored securely with our cloud service providers. We restrict access just to those who require the information to do their job and where necessary we anonymise and encrypt data.
As part of the services offered to you through this website, the information which you provide to us may be transferred to countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA). If we transfer your information outside of the EEA in this way, we will take steps to ensure that appropriate security measures are taken with the aim of ensuring that your privacy rights continue to be protected as outlined in this Policy. For example Mailchimp provides our mailing list management and is based in the US but has signed up for the US-Privacy Shield to be compliant with EEA adequacy provisions.
