https://www.detected.co/ (our website) is provided by Detected Limited (we, our or us). We are the ‘controller’ of personal data obtained via our website, meaning we are the organisation legally responsible for deciding how and for what purposes it is used.
We collect, use and are responsible for certain personal data about you when you use our website. When we do so we are subject to the UK General Data Protection Regulation (UK GDPR) and the Data Protection Act 2018.

Business data refers to data that accumulates over the normal course of operation on our platform. This may include transaction records, stored files, user profiles, analytics data and other metrics, as well as other types of information, created or generated, as users interact with our services.
2. LEGAL BASIS FOR PROCESSING YOUR DATA
We will process your personal information lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner in line with the UK GDPR. We collect and process information about you only where we have a legal basis for doing so.
These legal bases depend on the services you use and how you use them, meaning we collect and use your information only where:
- it’s necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party or to take steps at your request before entering into such a contract (for example, when we provide a service you request from us);
- it satisfies a legitimate interest (which is not overridden by your data protection interests), such as for research and development where permitted by law, to market and promote our services, and to protect our legal rights and interests;
- you give us consent to do so for a specific purpose (for example, you might consent to us sending you our newsletter or other direct marketing); or
- we need to process your data to comply with a legal obligation.
Where you consent to our use of information about you for a specific purpose, you have the right to change your mind at any time (but this will not affect any processing that has already taken place). We have provided more detail in Section 3 below.
We don’t keep personal information for longer than is necessary. While we retain this information, we will protect it within commercially acceptable means to prevent loss and theft, as well as unauthorised access, disclosure, copying, use or modification. That said, we advise that no method of electronic transmission or storage is 100% secure and cannot guarantee absolute data security. If necessary, we may retain your personal information for our compliance with a legal obligation or in order to protect your vital interests or the vital interests of another natural person.
3. COLLECTION AND USE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We may collect, hold, use and disclose information for the following purposes and personal information will not be further processed in a manner that is incompatible with these purposes.
The table below explains what we use your personal data for and why.
- to provide you with our platform's core features;
- to process any transactional or ongoing payments;
- to contact and communicate with you;
- for internal record keeping and administrative purposes;
- for analytics, market research and business development, including to operate and improve our website, associated applications and associated social media platforms;
- to run competitions and/or offer additional benefits to you;
- for advertising and marketing, including to send you promotional information about our products and services and information about third parties that we consider may be of interest to you; and

We have a legitimate interest in using your personal data for marketing purposes (see above ‘Collection and use of your personal information’). This means we do not always need your consent to send you marketing information.

- contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org; or

We may ask you to confirm or update your marketing preferences if you ask us to provide further services in the future, or if there are changes in the law, regulation, or the structure of our business.
6. INTERNATIONAL TRANSFERS OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
The personal information we collect is stored and processed in the United Kingdom, or where we or our partners, affiliates and third-party providers maintain facilities. By providing us with your personal information, you consent to the disclosure to these overseas third parties.
It is sometimes necessary for us to transfer your personal data to countries outside the UK. In those cases we will comply with applicable UK laws designed to ensure the privacy of your personal data.
We will ensure that any transfer of personal information from countries in the UK and the European Economic Area (EEA) to countries outside the EEA without an adequacy decision will be protected by appropriate safeguards, for example by using standard data protection clauses addendum or IDTA approved by the UK Government / competent authority, or the use of binding corporate rules or other legally accepted means.
