How I Share Information – And Why

I may have to share your personal data with the parties set out below:

* Other companies in my group who provide services to me.

* Professional advisers including lawyers, bankers, auditors and insurers.

* Government bodies that require me to report processing activities.

* With third party advertising platforms so that I can create marketing campaign advertising (e.g. using your email address to create a Facebook targeting audience).

* When you participate in an interactive area of my website, service, and products, and your information may be displayed to other users: such information may include, your name, photo, the comment, and other information you chose to provide at the time of submission.

* In response to a request for information if I believe disclosure is in accordance with, or required by, any applicable law, regulation or legal process.

* Third parties to whom I may sell, transfer, or merge parts of my business or my assets.

* With your consent or at your direction.

I require all third parties to whom I transfer your data to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. I only allow such third parties to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with my instructions.


I have put in place security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used, altered, disclosed, or accessed without authorization.

If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please email me at morgan@morganburks.com.

You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, I may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive or refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.

I may need to request specific information from you to help me confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. I may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up my response.

I try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take me longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, I will notify you.

If you are not happy with any aspect of how I collect and use your data, you have the right to complain to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), the UK supervisory authority for data protection issues (www.ico.org.uk).
