How we use your information
This privacy notice tells you what to expect when GDPR Auditing collects personal information. It applies to information we collect about:
- visitors to our websites;
- people who enquire about or use our services;

Visitors to our websites
However, we do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website. If we do want to collect personally identifiable information through our website, we will be up front about this. We will make it clear when we collect personal information and will explain what we intend to do with it.
What you need to know about:-
- Google Analytics
Google Analytics is a web analytics service offered by Google that tracks and reports website traffic. Google uses the data collected to track and monitor the use of our Service. This data is shared with other Google services. Google may use the collected data to contextualize and personalize the ads of its own advertising network.
You can opt-out of having made your activity on the Service available to Google Analytics by changing your cookie settings on our site here https://www.gdprauditing.com/cookie-policy/
For more information on the privacy practices of Google, please visit the Google Privacy & Terms web page: https://policies.google.com/privacy
People who Purchase or Contract with us for a Service
If you place an order for a toolkit we collect enough information to enable us to process your order and send you a toolkit and access to the portal. We collect and process this information using the ‘performance of a contract legal basis’ so that we may provide the service to you.
Unless you have specifically opted in to receive information about products and services from GDPR Auditing during the order process we will not send you any communication other than what is required for the supply of the service.
We keep this data for as long as we are providing the service to you, after you have stopped using the service(s) we keep the data for 12 months, then we anonymise it removing any personal information.
Any data classified as financial that we are required to keep will be retained according to UK HMRC rules, currently 6 years plus current year.
People who email us
Any email sent to us, including any attachments, may be monitored and used by us for reasons of security and for monitoring compliance with office policy. Email monitoring or blocking software may also be used. Please be aware that you have a responsibility to ensure that any email you send to us is within the bounds of the law.
If we consider the contents of an email to contain personal data we have not requested or more detail than we need then we will delete some or all of it immediately and request another with less personal details, or no personal details.
By submitting personal data to us by way of an email or an enquiry you necessarily consent to us using that information to contact you in return to complete that enquiry. We do not use that data for any other purpose. For the avoidance of doubt the legal basis for processing your enquiry is ‘consent’.
If you agree to allow us to send you information about GDPR Products and Services by opting in to that service, you do that on the basis of consent.
Who we Share Information With
When you place an order with us for a toolkit, we pass your details onto our payment processor so they may take the payment for the service, our agreement with them identifies them as a processor and ensures that the data transfer is both legal and secure.
We DO NOT share your data with anyone else.
GDPR Auditing DO NOT and WILL NOT transfer the information you provide to countries outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”).
We do pass on your information to our payment service provider, PayPal, who may process your data outside of the EEA – and possibly in the USA.
Under the UK’s GDPR regulations we rely on Article 49 section 1 (c) “the transfer is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract concluded in the interest of the data subject between the controller and another natural or legal person;”
However, we refer you to Paypal’s Data Processing Addendum for card Processing Products – https://www.paypal.com/uk/webapps/mpp/ua/bt-data-protection
Where we use Google Analytics cookies and you have opted to allow them, you acknowledged that you have consented to their use and that the cookie data is processed outside of the UK and may be processed in the USA
Where data is processed in the USA under these specific circumstances, we need to make you aware that personal data processed in the USA may not be afforded the same privacy rights as those in the UK or EU/EEA.
