How your personal information may be used

The main uses of your information are:

Customer Support, Sales and Marketing

To respond to enquiries, process your sale and to bring you relevant information via our marketing efforts

We use your personal data for customer care and for personalised communication of BP Media Info product and service information, where necessary with your consent.

In order to ensure that you receive relevant and personalised communications, we will use your data to create an individual customer profile and we may share your personal data between BP Media Info publications and services only.

Quality Assurance, Research and Development

To improve our products and services

We may use any of the information that we receive for product and service quality assurance and development purposes. Before any such use is undertaken your information will be de-personalised so it cannot be directly linked back to you. In other words, you will be made anonymous during the process.

Compliance with legal requests for your information

To comply with our legal obligations to law enforcement, regulators and the court service

We may be legally required to provide your information to law enforcement agencies, regulators and courts and third party litigants in connection with proceedings or investigations anywhere in the world. Where permitted, we will direct any such request to you or notify you before responding unless to do so would prejudice the prevention or detection of a crime.

Legal grounds for processing of your personal information

The use of your information set out above is permitted under EU data protection law on the basis of these principle legal grounds:

  • Where you have consented to the use, you will have been presented with a consent form in relation to any such use and may withdraw your consent at any time through the BP Media Info customer services on Tel  01795 515288 or sending an email to, or by writing to us at Boutique Professional Media  Ltd, Office 2  The Old Stable Block Crescent Road , Faversham, Kent ME13 7GU
  • Where necessary to enter into or perform our contract with you
  • Where we need to use it to comply with our legal obligations
  • Where we use it to achieve a legitimate interest and our reasons for using it outweigh any prejudice to your data protection rights (our legitimate interests include promoting  BPMedia Info business and tailoring news and offers to your profile, research and development of media and advertising related products and services, assessing your credit-worthiness, detecting fraud and criminal activities)
  • Where necessary for us to defend, prosecute or make a claim against you, us or a third party

There may be uses that are permitted on the basis of other grounds; where this is the case, we will use reasonable endeavours to identify the ground and communicate it to you as soon as possible, after becoming aware of the new basis.

Transfer of data to third parties

Personal information, which we collected, may be transferred to third parties on your behalf, only with your consent.

This is only shared in a secure manner, using a consistent security protocol. When we share with other parties we ensure that they only use your personal data for the purpose it was collected and do not allow them to abuse this agreement.

How do we keep your personal information safe

We use a variety of security measures, including encryption and authentication tools, to protect and maintain security, integrity and availability of your information.

Although data transmission over the internet or website cannot be guaranteed to be secure, we and our business partners work hard to maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your information in accordance with applicable data protection requirements. Our main security measures are:

  • Tightly restricted personal access to your data on a ‘need to know’ basis and for the communicated purpose only
  • Transferred collected data only in encrypted form
  • Highly confidential data stored only in encrypted form – e.g. credit card information
  • Firewalled IT systems to prohibit unauthorised access e.g. from hackers
  • Permanently monitored access to IT systems to detect and stop misuse of personal data

If you have a personal password, which enables you to access certain parts of our websites or any other portal, application or service we operate, do not forget your responsibility for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your username, password and contact information with anyone.

How long we keep your personal information for

We retain your information only as long as is necessary for the purpose for which we obtain them and any other permitted linked purposes. If information is used for two purposes we will retain it until the purpose with the latest period expires; but we will stop using it for the purpose with a shorter period once that period expires.

We restrict access to your information to only those persons who need to use it for the relevant purpose.

Our retention periods are based on business needs and your information that is no longer needed is either irreversibly anonymised or destroyed securely.

Use For Marketing:
We retain your personal information for as long as necessary, but only for the relevant purpose that we collected it for. You retain the right to remove this consent at any point.

Use to Perform a Contract:
In relation to your information used to perform any contractual obligation with you we may retain that data whilst the contract remains in force plus one year to deal with any queries or claims thereafter.
