Sharing your information

When we share your information

We may share your information with third parties for the reasons outlined in 'Processing your information’ above.

These third parties include, but are not limited to: -

• Suppliers with whom we have carefully selected and entered into agreements with in order to support us in the delivery of the products and services we offer to our customers (e.g. Stripe, GoCardless, Kashflow)

• Our regulators (e.g. Ofcom, Nominet, ICANN) and the Information Commissioner’s Office for the UK (the ICO)

• Law enforcement and credit, risk & fraud agencies for the prevention and detection of criminal activities

• HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) e.g. for the processing of tax relief on pension payments or the prevention of tax avoidance

Whenever we share your personal information, we will do so in line with our principles and obligations outlined in this policy, all of which are designed to keep your information safe and secure. We will never sell your details to someone else.

We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes and only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.

When you share your own information

Sometimes you may share your information publicly, such as by posting on our on social media sites. Remember, when you share information publicly it may become accessible through search engines.

Where your information is processed

The majority of your information is processed in the UK and European Economic Area (EEA). Where your information is being processed outside of the EEA, we take additional steps to ensure that your information is protected to at least an equivalent level as would be applied by UK / EEA data privacy laws e.g. the third party processing your information operates under the EU-US Privacy Shield agreement.

You’re in control of your information

It is important that the personal data we hold about you is accurate and current, and we therefore ask that if your personal data changes during your relationship with us, that you ensure it is updated. You can do this via the self-service portal at, alternatively please contact us using the Contact Information details listed at the end of this document.

Under certain circumstances, you have rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal data. These rights are listed below:

  • Request access to your personal data.

  • Request correction of your personal data.

  • Request erasure of your personal data.

  • Object to processing of your personal data.

  • Request restriction of processing your personal data.

  • Request transfer of your personal data.

  • Right to withdraw consent.

If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, you can contact us during normal business by one of the means listed in the Contact Information section later in this document.

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

Information security

Whilst we cannot ensure or guarantee that unauthorised access to or unauthorised alteration, disclosure or loss of information will never occur, we work hard to prevent it. In particular:

  • We use encryption to keep your data private while in transit (always check for the ‘s’ in the https:// in your browser address bar to show you are using a secure connection)

  • Your account information is protected for your privacy and security. Either this is through a password you have chosen, or a secure system generated one which has been provided to you. Ikiji personnel will never ask for your password.

  • To help keep your account and your personal information secure you should not disclose your password details to anyone. You should also make sure your Ikiji account password is different from any other system passwords you use. We recommend you change your passwords on a regular basis.

  • We review our practices for collecting, processing and storing personal information, including physical security measures, to guard against unauthorised access to systems and backups to prevent the loss of information. We will continue to enhance our security procedures as new technology becomes available.

  • We restrict access to personal information wherever possible to people who need to know that information to process it and who are subject to contractual confidentiality requirements.

  • We have procedures in place to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so, and within the required legal timelines.

If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that the security of your account has been compromised), please contact us immediately.

Retention of information

We keep the personal information we collect for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which we collected it.

The length of time depends on the purposes for which we use it, or otherwise to meet our legal obligations.

We will delete any information as soon as we no longer have a valid reason to hold it. If this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives or to comply with tax, accounting and financial reporting obligations), then we will securely store your personal information until deletion is possible.

Use by Minors

None of our products or services are directed to individuals under the age of thirteen (13), and we request that they not provide personal data by any means to Ikiji.
