Privacy Policy


Robin Appel Ltd. Registered office address: Church Court, Clewers Hill, Waltham Chase, Southampton, Hampshire, SO32 2LN. Company Number 01437928.

The company directors take responsibility for data protection and can be contacted at enquiries@robin-appel.com.

Robin Appel Ltd is fully compliant with EU General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) and is committed to EU data protection requirements. We recognise the need for appropriate protection and management of any personally identifiable information (personal information) you share with us. Meaning, we don’t collect and process users’ personal information beyond what is legally required for the functioning of our products and services.

Personal information means any information that may be used to identify an individual, including, but not limited to, a first and last name, a home or other physical address, an email address or other contact information; whether at work or at home. Banking details and employment related information are also classified as personal information.

We will only collect your personal information directly from you or your authorised agent. This will usually be when discussing a possible business contract or when entering in to such contract.

In general, you can visit our web pages without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself.

Robin Appel Ltd will only process your personal information to fulfil our contractual, legal and statutory obligations to provide you with our products and services.

In all cases: We will process your data where we have a legitimate interest in doing so, for example to monitor and improve our services, to investigate an actual or potential breach of our terms and conditions, to facilitate continuity of our services and to protect our rights and property or those of other parties. We will process your data where we have a legal obligation to do so, for example in respect of a fraud investigation or a request from HMRC.

We will only share your data with third parties for the purposes specified in this notice to facilitate the completion of a contract, for legal or statutory reasons.

Robin Appel Ltd will never share your personal information with a third party for marketing purposes.

We will only retain your data for as long as is necessary and for the purposes specified in this notice.

Data Subject Rights

GDPR compliance requires data subjects under certain circumstances be granted the following rights. What follows is not an exhaustive list, but those rights that are relevant to the collection, processing, and storage of personal data.

Right to Access

Data subjects reserve the right to request and obtain confirmation that data is or is not being collected on them and if so, exactly what data is being collected, how, where, and for what purposes. This data can be manually requested via enquiries@robin-appel.com and provided in an electronic format free of charge.

Right to Be Forgotten

This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal information where there is no good reason for us to continue to process it. This request can be manually made via enquiries@robin-appel.com. Please be sure to include the full name (including any prefixes) and email address of whom the data is in reference too, so that all data relating to the data subject in question can be accurately removed.

Data Portability

Similar to the Right to Access, Data Portability requires that data subjects are able to request, obtain, and/or transfer possession of collected data at any time. As mentioned above, this data can be manually requested via enquiries@robin-appel.com, and provided in an electronic format free of charge. Should the data subject wish to transfer the possession of the data stored by Robin Appel Ltd, please be sure to also include the full name (including any prefixes) and the relevant contact information relating to the individual or organisation whom you wish the data to be transferred to.

Breach Notification

Should Robin Appel Ltd encounter a breach/unauthorised access of personal data that is likely to “result in a risk for the rights and freedoms of individuals”, Robin Appel Ltd will ensure that a notification is made within 72 hours of becoming aware of the breach.

Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies

Some of our web pages utilise “cookies” and other tracking technologies. Cookies are small pieces of data, stored in text files, that are stored on your computer or other device when websites are loaded in a browser. They are widely used to ‘remember’ you and your preferences, either for a single visit (through a ‘session cookie’) or for multiple repeat visits (using a ‘persistent cookie’). They ensure a consistent and efficient experience for visitors, and perform essential functions such as allowing users to register and remain logged in. Cookies may be set by the site that you are visiting (known as ‘first party cookies’), or by other websites who serve up content on that site (‘third party cookies’).

Tracking technologies may record information such as Internet domain and host names; Internet protocol (IP) addresses; browser software and operating system types; clickstream patterns; and dates and times that our site is accessed. Our use of cookies and other tracking technologies allows us to improve our web site and your web experience. We may also analyse information that does not contain personal information for trends and statistics.

To protect your privacy, we have adopted the following principles:

Notice

Where Robin Appel Ltd collects personal information on the web, we intend to post a purpose statement that explains why personal information will be collected and whether we plan to share such personal information outside of Robin Appel Ltd or those working on our behalf. Robin Appel Ltd does not intend to transfer personal information without your consent to third parties who are not bound to act on our behalf, unless such a transfer is legally required.

Choice

You may choose whether or not to provide personal information to Robin Appel Ltd. The notice we intend to provide where we collect personal information on the web should help you to make this choice.

If you choose to have a relationship with Robin Appel Ltd, such as a contractual or other business relationship or partnership, we will naturally continue to contact you in connection with that business relationship.

Security

Wherever your personal information may be held within Robin Appel Ltd or on its behalf, we intend to take reasonable and appropriate steps to protect the personal information that you share with us from unauthorised access or disclosure.

Commitment

We are committed to privacy and through our membership in the Online Privacy Alliance, are actively involved in and support current industry initiatives to preserve individual privacy rights on the Internet. Protecting your privacy online is an evolving area, and our websites are constantly evolving to meet these demands.

If you have any comments or questions regarding our Online Privacy Policy, please contact us at enquiries@robin-appel.com. While we cannot guarantee privacy perfection, we will address any issue to the best of our abilities as soon as possible.
