    1. Types of Data / Privacy Policy Scope

      Personal Data” means any information about an individual from which that person can be identified. It does not include data where the identity has been removed (anonymous data).

      We may collect, use, store and transfer different kinds of Personal Data about you which we have grouped together below. Not all of the following types of data will necessarily be collected from you but this is the full scope of data that we collect and when we collect it from you:

      • Profile/Identity Data: This is data relating to your first name, last name, gender, date of birth.
      • Contact Data: This is data relating to your phone number, addresses, email addresses, phone numbers.

      We do not collect any Special Categories of Personal Data about you (this includes details about your race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sex life, sexual orientation, political opinions, trade union membership, information about your health, and genetic and biometric data). Nor do we collect any information about criminal convictions and offences.

    2. The Legal Basis for Collecting That Data

      There are a number of justifiable reasons under the GDPR that allow collection and processing of Personal Data. The main avenues we rely on are:

      • Consent”: Certain situations allow us to collect your Personal Data, such as when you tick a box that confirms you are happy to receive email newsletters from us, or ‘opt in’ to a service.
      • Contractual Obligations”: We may require certain information from you in order to fulfil our contractual obligations and provide you with the promised service.
      • Legal Compliance”: We’re required by law to collect and process certain types of data, such as fraudulent activity or other illegal actions.
      • Legitimate Interest”: We might need to collect certain information from you to be able to meet our legitimate interests - this covers aspects that can be reasonably expected as part of running our business, that will not have a material impact on your rights, freedom or interests. Examples could be your address, so that we know where to deliver something to, or your name, so that we have a record of who to contact moving forwards.

    1. Our Uses

      We will only use your Personal Data when the law allows us to. Set out below is a table containing the different types of Personal Data we collect and the lawful basis for processing that data. Please refer to section 2.2 for more information on the lawful basis listed in the table below.

      The examples provided below are indicative in nature and the purposes for which we use your data may be broader than described but we will never process your data without a legal basis for doing so and it is for a related purpose. For further inquiries please contact us.

    2. Marketing and Content Updates

      You will receive marketing and new content communications from us unless you specifically request that you would not like to receive these communications. From time to time we may make suggestions and recommendations to you about goods or services that may be of interest to you.

    3. Change of Purpose

      We will only use your Personal Data for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If you wish to get an explanation as to how the processing for the new purpose is compatible with the original purpose, please contact us.

      If we need to use your Personal Data for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.

    2. How Does 1fs Group Limited Protect Customers' Personal Data?

      We are concerned with keeping your data secure and protecting it from inappropriate disclosure. We implement a variety of security measures to ensure the security of your Personal Data on our systems, including data encryption at rest and in transit. Any Personal Data collected by us is only accessible by a limited number of employees who have special access rights to such systems and are bound by obligations of confidentiality. If and when we use subcontractors to store your data, we will not relinquish control of your Personal Data or expose it to security risks that would not have arisen had the data remained in our possession. However, unfortunately no transmission of data over the internet is guaranteed to be completely secure. It may be possible for third parties not under the control of 1fs Group Limited to intercept or access transmissions or private communications unlawfully. While we strive to protect your Personal Data, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any Personal Data you transmit to us. Any such transmission is done at your own risk. If you believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure, please contact us.

    3. Opting Out Of Marketing Promotions

      You can ask us to stop sending you marketing messages at any time by email.

      Where you opt out of receiving these marketing messages, we will continue to retain other Personal Data provided to us as a result of interactions with us not related to your marketing preferences.

    4. How to Request your Data and the Process for Obtaining it

      You will not have to pay a fee to access your Personal Data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, if your request is clearly unfounded, we could refuse to comply with your request.

      We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure you have the right to access your Personal Data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that Personal Data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.

    5. The right of access

      We, as the data controller, must provide you with the following:

      • confirmation that your data is being processed
      • access to your personal data
      • other supplementary information

    6. The right to rectification

      You can ask us to correct any personal information it holds about you to ensure your data is accurate. You may also ask us to complete incomplete data held about yourself.

    7. The right to erasure/be forgotten

      You have the right to (under certain circumstances) ask for your personal data to be erased where:

      • your personal data is no longer necessary in relation to the purpose for which it was collected/processed
      • you withdraw your consent or object to the processing and there is no overriding legitimate interest to continue processing
      • you object to the processing and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing
      • you object to the processing and your personal data was processed for direct marketing purposes
      • your personal data was unlawfully processed or should be erased to comply with a legal obligation
      • your personal data is processed in relation to the offer of information society services to a child

      We can refuse to erase your personal data where it is processed:

      • to comply with a legal obligation or for the performance of a task of public interest
      • for the exercise or defence of legal claims
      • for purposes relating to public health, archiving in the public interest, scientific/historical research or statistics

      If your data has been disclosed to a third party, we will ask them to erase that data, unless this proves impossible or involves disproportionate effort. You may ask who those third parties are and we will inform you accordingly.

    8. The right to restrict processing

      You have the right to restrict the processing of personal data held by us where:

      • you have contested its accuracy
      • you have objected to the processing and we are considering whether they have a legitimate ground which overrides this
      • processing is unlawful
      • we no longer need the data but you require it to establish, exercise or defend a legal claim
    9. The right to data portability

      The right to data portability allows individuals to move, copy or transfer personal data easily from one IT environment to another in a safe and secure way, without hindrance to usability. This enables you to obtain and reuse your personal data across different services.

      The right to data portability only applies:

      • to personal data that an individual has personally provided to us
      • where the processing is based on consent or the performance of a contract
      • where processing is carried out by automated means (i.e. excluding paper files)
    10. The right to object

      You have the right to object to the processing of your personal data in certain circumstances and have an absolute right to stop your data from being used for direct marketing.

      You can also object if the processing is for:

      • a task carried out in the public interest
      • the exercise of official authority vested in us
      • our legitimate interests (or those of a third party)

      However, in these circumstances, the right to object is not absolute and you must give specific reasons why you are objecting to the processing of your data.

      Please be aware that we would be able to continue processing your personal data if:

      • we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing, which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the individual
      • the processing is for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims

    1. Will We Share Your Data With Third Parties?

      We may also share Personal Data with interested parties in the event that 1fs Group Limited anticipates a change in control or the acquisition of all or part of our business or assets or with interested parties in connection with the licensing of our technology.

      If 1fs Group Limited is sold or makes a sale or transfer, we may, in our sole discretion, transfer, sell or assign your Personal Data to a third party as part of or in connection with that transaction. Upon such transfer, the Privacy Policy of the acquiring entity may govern the further use of your Personal Data. In all other situations your data will still remain protected in accordance with this Privacy Policy (as amended from time to time).

      We may share your Personal Data at any time if required for legal reasons or in order to enforce our terms or this Privacy Policy.

    2. Third-Party Links

      This Site may include links to third-party websites, plug-ins and applications. Clicking on those links or enabling those connections may allow third parties to collect or share data about you. We do not control these third-party websites and are not responsible for their privacy statements. When you leave our Site, we encourage you to read the privacy policy of every website you visit.


    We will only retain your Personal Data for as long as reasonably necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for. We may retain your Personal Data for a longer period than usual in the event of a complaint or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation in respect to our relationship with you.

    This website is not intended for children and we do not knowingly collect data relating to children.


    Your information will be stored and processed in the UK and EEA where 1fs Group Limited has facilities. We are currently storing data in the UK and EEA and so, by using 1fs Group Limited, you are permitting and consenting to the transfer of information, including Personal Data, within the UK and EEA.


    We keep our Privacy Policy under review and will place any updates on this webpage. This version is dated 4 March 2020.

    All uses of the word "including" mean "including but not limited to" and the enumerated examples are not intended to in any way limit the term which they serve to illustrate. Any email addresses set out in this policy may be used solely for the purpose for which they are stated to be provided, and any unrelated correspondence will be ignored. Unless otherwise required by law, we reserve the right to not respond to emails, even if they relate to a legitimate subject matter for which we have provided an email address. As a matter of common sense, you are more likely to get a reply if your request or question is polite, reasonable and there is no relatively obvious other way to deal with or answer your concern or question (e.g. FAQs, other areas of our website etc.).

    Our staff are not authorised to contract on behalf of 1fs Group Limited, waive rights or make representations (whether contractual or otherwise). If anything contained in an email from a 1fs Group Limited address contradicts anything in this policy, our terms or any official public announcement on our website, or is inconsistent with or amounts to a waiver of any 1fs Group Limited rights, the email content will be read down to grant precedence to the latter. The only exception to this is genuine correspondence expressed to be from the 1fs Group Limited legal department.
