Lawful basis for processing your Personal Data
The following is the lawful basis for processing your Personal Data:
In order to avail of our Services, you consent to us obtaining and processing your Personal Data. While dealing with you we may issue terms and conditions (“Terms of Business”) or execute a contract outlining the terms and conditions of our engagement with you. The Terms of Business/contract along with this Notice set out the purposes for which your Personal Data may be obtained and processed by us. By accepting the Terms of Business or by using our Website or by executing a contract with us and by continuing to deal with us you confirm that you have consented to us processing your Personal Data in accordance with our Terms and this Privacy Notice.
One of the grounds for obtaining and processing your Personal Data is so that we can perform our Services in line with the scope of work and Terms of Business mutually agreed to by us.
Compliance with legal obligations
We may have to collect Personal Data in order to comply with certain legislative and regulatory requirements relating to client due diligence. Consequently, we may process your Data to carry out identity checks and maintain records of customer due diligence.
We may employ third party service providers for the purposes of carrying out client identity checks. However, we remain the Data Controllers.
In circumstances where you are a client or are an employee at KML we may have to process your Personal Data to promote and pursue legitimate interests of the public and/or our organisation, and/or yours as our client or employee.
* However, you can object to us processing your Personal Data, on any of these bases at any time and, if you do so, we will stop processing the Personal Data unless we can show compelling legitimate grounds which override your rights and interests such as, without limitation your own health and safety or the health and safety of any other person(s), or the legitimate interest of our organisation and/or the public or we need the Data to establish, exercise or defend legal claims – see “Your rights” below.
Who may use your information?
We are committed to keeping your e-mail address confidential. We do not sell, rent, or lease the subscription lists to third parties. We may disclose your Personal Data to enforce our policies, to comply with our legal obligations (such as if we are required to disclose your Personal Data under a court order, legal requirement and/or regulatory requirement) or in the interests of security, public interest, or law enforcement in any country where we have entities or affiliates. For example, we may respond to a request by a law enforcement agency or regulatory or governmental authority. We may also disclose Data in connection with actual or proposed litigation, or to protect our property, security, people and other rights or interests.
We may share your Personal Data with our employees, independent contractors, consultants, partners and/or third parties who help deliver our Services to you. Examples include hosting our web servers, analysing data, providing marketing and administration assistance, and providing customer service. These companies will have access to your personal information as necessary to perform their functions, but they may not use that Data for any other purpose. Our contracts with all third parties processing our client’s Personal Data shall outline their obligations relating to data protection.
We may share aggregated anonymised data with third parties in order to monitor our Services and to ensure consistent quality and safety relating to the Services provided to clients.
Please remember that when you share information publicly on the Website or on social media platforms, for example a comment on a blog post or within social media groups, it may be indexable by search engines, including Google, which may mean that the information is made public.
When you participate in conversations on social media your Personal Data is visible to members of the concerned social media group and to the public in general. Please note that you participate in social media related activities at your sole discretion, and we shall not be liable for the access and use of your Personal Data by third parties, via social media, including circumstances, where third parties contact you or initiate a conversation with you, on social media or otherwise, as a result of your information made available to them via our social media groups or any activity you participate in through our social media platforms or by connecting with us on social media.
Storing Your Personal Data
We may transfer data that we collect from you to locations outside of the United Kingdom and the European Economic Area for processing and storing. Also, it may be processed by staff operating outside the European Economic Area who work for us or for one of our suppliers. For example, such staff may be engaged in the processing and concluding of your order, the processing of your payment details and the provision of support services. By submitting your Personal Data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing. We will take all reasonable steps to make sure that your data is treated securely and in agreement with this Privacy Notice.
In accordance with the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) we have confirmed with all of the companies that process data on our behalf or that we use to provide Services or products that where Personal Data is involved they are compliant and retain compliance with the GDPR.
Data that is provided to us is stored on our secure servers. Details relating to any transactions entered into on our Website will be encrypted to ensure its safety.

Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password so that you can access certain parts of our site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential.
Our policy is that we retain your Personal Data for as long as it is necessary for the purposes set out in this Notice, or as is required by applicable law. All of the Personal Data is disposed of securely to ensure compliance with Applicable Data Protection Law.

Hosting and back-end infrastructure
We use third-party hosting services for the purposes of hosting data and files that enable our Website to run and be distributed as well as to enable us to run specific features and functions within our Website.
