General information

Parker Neal Ltd (“we”, “us”, or “our”) is a business advisory and consulting organisation in the field of information security and data governance. This Privacy Policy outlines our commitment to processing any personal data you supply to us, either directly or indirectly, with care in a safe and secure manner and in line with the requirements set out in all applicable laws concerning the protection of personal data. 

The type of personal data we collect 

We currently collect and process the following data (mainly via website interaction):
  • Personal identifiers, contacts and characteristics – for example: your name, email address, company, postal address, telephone number, and any other information that you provide us.
  • Client relationship information – for example: services used, financial information, customer feedback.

How we get the personal data and why we have it

Most of the personal data we process is provided to us directly by you for one of the following reasons:
  • You have contacted us directly via our website and completed a ‘Contact Us’ enquiry form.
  • You have contacted us directly via telephone and provided basic contact information.
  • You have provided us with additional information about you in the course of us providing services to you or helping to maintain an ongoing customer relationship during the course of delivering our services to you.


We also receive personal data indirectly from the following sources in the following scenarios:


  • Our Partner organisations (details of which are available on our website), for the purpose of providing joint services to you.
  • Third party data suppliers, for the purpose of proactively issuing promotional material only in a B2B capacity.
  • From your website or other publicly available sources such as social media, for the purpose of maintaining good customer relations only in a B2B capacity.


We use the information that you have given us either directly or indirectly in order to provide one-off or ongoing client service engagements to you. 

Legal grounds for processing your personal data 

We process your personal data on the basis of having a legitimate interest for the purpose of communicating with you as a potential or existing client in the course of establishing or maintaining a business relationship and delivery of our services to you. We have completed a Legitimate Interests Assessment inline with ICO guidance to support our decision for this legal basis.

Who we share your personal data with

We may share this information with our Partner organisations only where you have asked us to in the course of a potential or existing engagement. However, the usual data protection risks associated with sharing are reduced on the basis that such engagements are B2B.

How we store and protect your personal data

We use a number of control measures to ensure your personal data is kept secure whilst processed within our environment. These include:
  • People – are up to date with data privacy awareness and the needs around client confidentiality;
  • Process – are in place supported by policies and standards governing how we process data and keep data secure; and
  • Technology – is applied to support each stage of the data lifecycle, and includes measures such as firewalls, anti-virus, encryption, mobile device management, cyber threat detection and monitoring etc.
The transmission of data over the internet (including by e-mail) is never completely secure. So although we use appropriate measures to try to protect personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of data transmitted to us or by us.

How long we retain your personal data

We retain personal data relating to personal identifiers, contacts and characteristics, and client relationship information for as long as is necessary to fulfil an ongoing relationship with you. Your personal data will be deleted from our core systems upon your request, or 6 years after a relationship has ended or there has been no further contact. 

Sending data outside the UK

Personal data we process about you may be transferred to other countries outside of the UK or the European Economic Area (“EEA”). This may be due to an engagement with us or where our third party partners conduct activity.

Such countries may have less or more stringent data protection laws and requirements than we do in the UK. Therefore, we or our permitted third party partners will only transfer personal data to such countries where adequate protections have been deemed to be in place by the European Commission, we have imposed contractual obligations to the recipients of personal data, and / or you have directly consented to the transfer.

Under data protection law, you have rights including:
  • Your right of access – You have the right to ask us for copies of your personal data.
