From 31 December 2020, Regulation (EU) 2016/679, General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) became retained EU law and known as UK GDPR. Together with the parts of the Data Protection Act 2018 that relate to general personal data processing, powers of the Information Commissioner and sanctions and enforcement, as amended, this makes up the UK GDPR regime. The GDPR as it continues to apply in the EU is known as EU GDPR.
“Data Protection Law” means the UK GDPR and in each case any successor or delegated legislation and any national implementing laws, regulations and secondary legislation, as amended or updated from time to time, in the UK, including where applicable the guidance and codes of practice issued by the Information Commissioner, the Financial Conduct Authority, the Article 29 Working Party or relevant supervisory authority from time to time; and all applicable Law in any jurisdiction relating to the processing or protection of personal data and privacy, including where applicable, the guidance and codes of practice issued by the Information Commissioner, the Financial Conduct Authority, the Article 29 Working Party or relevant supervisory authority from time to time.

We analyse information to see what is most effective about our website and associated services to help us identify ways to improve it and to make it more effective. We may also use information for other purposes, which we would describe to you at the point when we collect the information.
We collect information directly from you in a number of ways. One way is by using cookies. Cookies are small files of information that save and retrieve information about your visit to our site, such as how you entered our site, how you navigated through the site and what information was of interest to you. This information is collected for a number of reasons, for example, to help develop the website and associated services.
We also collect information when you give it to us. It is completely up to you whether you provide it, but not providing information may affect our ability to provide services to you. We will use your personal data to answer your request, for example to answer your questions. In addition, personal data may be used for management information and research. We may disclose information to our group companies and service providers for these purposes.
Information gathered by us includes the user’s IP address, the web page a tool is accessed from, and how many times it is accessed. In some cases, tracking is used to show user journeys through a tool. This information is the sole property of EV and may be shared with trusted third parties for the purposes of improving our services to you. All EV tools store the number of times a user has visited the tool. Some tools also store ‘state’ information so that when a user returns to a tool it is in the ‘state’ they left it.
We will not hold your personal data for any longer than we are required to do so under applicable law.
We do not share your personal data with other organisations unless the law permits us to do so. We do not sell individuals’ information. We will share it only with our authorised Data Processors (as defined under Data Protection Law), who must act at all times on our instructions as the Data Controller (as defined under GDPR). We use a third party hosting provider, Cyberfort Limited, in the UK with company registration number: 05038041, to host our software and the personal data that is stored on the software.

You can do this by contacting Data Protection Officer, EValue Limited, Benyon House, Newbury Business Park, London Road, Newbury RG14 2PZ.
We take appropriate steps to maintain the security of your data. The open nature of the internet means that data may flow over networks without security measures and may be accessed and used by people other than those for whom the data is intended. Our intention is that this should not happen and we take measures to ensure that it does not. However, we cannot guarantee the security of any information transmitted via the internet and cannot be held responsible for any damages you, or others, may suffer as a result of the loss of confidentiality or such information.
