Data Protection Laws define certain personal data as falling into ‘special categories of personal data’ such as personal data regarding your racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, genetic data, biometric data for the purposes of uniquely identifying a person, data concerning your health (including mental and physical health), or data concerning your sex life or sexual orientation. If you provide this information, this will be an indication that you explicitly consent to us processing it.

If we only use your data for local council and water authority notifications, we’ll keep it until we’ve completed the notifications.

For marketing purposes, unless you tell us otherwise, we’ll keep this for six months after you register with Tili.
11. THIRD PARTY WEBSITES
We have appropriate security measures in place to prevent personal information from being accidentally lost, or used or accessed in an unauthorised way. We limit access to your personal information to those who have a genuine business need to know it. Those processing your information will do so only in an authorised manner and are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
Whilst we take appropriate technical and organisational measures and have in place physical and electronic procedures necessary to safeguard the personal information that you provide to us, no transmission to or from us by post, email, phone, SMS or over the Internet can ever be guaranteed as entirely secure. Communications over the web are not secure and as such, we can’t accept any liability or responsibility for any unauthorised access or loss of personal information.
We also have procedures in place to deal with any suspected data security breach. We’ll notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected data security breach where we’re legally required to do so.
Where we’ve given you (or where you’ve chosen) login details which enables you to access Tili or other services of ours, you’re responsible for keeping these details confidential. You agree that you won’t share your login details with anyone else.
13. INTERNATIONAL TRANSFERS
We, or our suppliers, may transfer personal data that we collect from you to third party data processors located, or with servers located, in countries that are outside of the European Economic Area (EEA).
Where we transfer data outside of the EEA, we ensure that adequate safeguards have been put in place to protect your personal data.
This means that we will:
• ensure that the country in which your personal data will be handled has been deemed “adequate” by the European Commission under Article 45 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR); or
• include standard data protection clauses approved by the European Commission for transferring personal data outside the EEA into our contracts with those third parties (these are the clauses approved under Article 46.2 of the GDPR).
