How do we use your personal data?
We will only use your personal data when the law allows us to. Most commonly, we will use your personal data in the following circumstances:

- if it is necessary for our legitimate interests and these are not overridden by your own rights and interests
- where we need to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation.
In order to process personal data, we must have a lawful reason (sometimes called a lawful basis). We always ensure that this is the case, and we set out our lawful bases below – but please note that more than one may apply at any given time: for example, if we inform you of changes to our privacy notice, we may process your personal data on the ground of complying with law and on the ground of legitimate interests.
We will use your personal data only for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we fairly consider that we need it for another reason that is compatible with the original purpose.
Please contact us if you would like more information on this, and on situations in which more than one lawful basis applies.
If you are our customer or applying for a job, we will process your personal data for the following purposes, on the legal basis that it is necessary for us to provide our products and services to you:

- to identify you
- to respond to your inquiries
- to provide our products and services
- to carry out billing and administration activities
- to evaluate your job application and take any next steps, and to evaluate your suitability for roles where you have asked to be considered for future opportunities.
Of course, you are not obliged to provide us with any of this information, but if you chose not to, we may be unable to provide the service that you have requested.
We process your personal information for our legitimate business purposes, which include the following:
- to conduct and manage our business

- to personalise your web experience – for example, by tailoring our services to you
- to analyse, improve and update our services for the benefit of our customers
- to deal with complaints
- to let you know about our services or events that we consider may be of interest to you (and which may be tailored to your interests as construed from your history). We do this only where you have provided us with a preferred means of contact for this purpose. We carry out this processing on the legal basis that we have a legitimate interest in marketing our services, and only to the extent that we are permitted to do so by applicable direct marketing laws. You can opt out of receiving this information by unsubscribing from our emails, or by contacting us as set out in Section 1 above.
Whenever we process your personal data for these purposes, we ensure that your interests, rights and freedoms are carefully considered.
If you have never purchased from us or but have given us your explicit consent to hear from us about our services or events that we consider may be of interest to you, we will contact you by email (according to the contact preference you have provided). You have the right to withdraw consent to marketing at any time.
Do we share your personal data?
We never share your data.
Do you have to provide personal data – and, if so, why?
To form a contract with you, we will need some or all of the personal data described above so that we can perform that contract or the steps that lead up to it: this is set out above in this notice. If we do not receive the data, the contract could not be performed.
If you sign up to our mailing list, you will have to provide certain personal data. Of course, you may decide to stop receiving our mailings at any time.
How long will your personal data will be kept for?
We carefully consider the personal data that we store, and we will not keep your information in a form that identifies you for longer than is necessary for the purposes set out in this notice or as required by applicable law. In some instances, we are required to hold data for minimum periods: for example, UK tax law currently specifies a six-year period for retention of some of your personal data.
How do we keep your personal data secure?
LG Networks has security measures in place designed to prevent data loss, to preserve data integrity, and to regulate access to the data. Only authorised LG Networks employees have access to your personal data.
All LG Networks employees who have access to your personal data are required to adhere to the LG Networks Privacy Notice.
The security measures we have in place include:
- regular reviews of information collection, storage and processing practices to protect against unauthorised access
- restriction of access to personal information
- monitoring of systems storing and processing information
- use of secure technologies (e.g. SSL)
Where you have a password which enables you to access certain parts of your website, billing portal or online account, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.
We take all reasonable steps to keep your data safe and secure and to ensure the data is accessed only by those who have a legitimate interest to do so. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to us. Any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your personal data, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
Please contact us using the details in section 1 of this notice if you would like more information about this.
