WHO HAS ACCESS TO YOUR INFORMATION?
  • Your personal data will be processed by the Bonhams company that initially receives it, and may also be transferred to and processed by other companies within the Bonhams group. Bonhams uses GDPR compliant standard contractual clauses to regulate the transfer and processing of data between group companies.
  • Where it is necessary to enable us to provide you with the services you have requested, we will transfer your personal data to third parties (for example: we may transfer your data to our bank, payment card system operators, shippers, warehouses, insurers, experts who help us authenticate or value property, event venues, caterers, catalogue and direct marketing fulfilment and distribution). These organisations will only use the information to carry out the instructed services and on the basis, that the information is confidential and secure. Some of these organisations may be located outside the EEA (please see below).
  • We do not transfer your personal data to third parties who wish to use it for their own marketing or other purposes.
  • We may need to carry out anti-money laundering and trade sanction checks and for us to do so we may need to retain and disclose certain information about you to appropriate agencies. This is also to assist with fraud, crime prevention and detection.
  • We will only disclose your personal data when we receive a request from a government or law enforcement authority to provide your data in two situations: when we are ordered to do so by a court; or after we have undertaken an internal review and conclude that the institution making the request has both complied with the correct procedure and has the right to seek disclosure.
  • Third parties who provide services for us, for example [insert details such as, collecting or processing data and sending mailings]. We select our third-party service providers with care. We provide these third parties with only the information that is necessary to provide the service and we will have an agreement in place that requires them to operate with the same care over data protection as we do
  • Third parties if we run an event in conjunction with them. We will let you know how your data is used when you register for any such event
  • Analytics and search engine providers that help us to improve the Site and its use
  • Third parties in connection with restructuring or reorganisation of our operations, for example if we merge with another business. In such event, we will take steps to ensure your privacy rights will be protected by the third party

Owing to matters such as financial or technical considerations, the information you provide to us may be transferred to countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA), which are not subject to the same data protection regulations as apply in the UK. [Explain why you may do this e.g. because it is stored on servers outside the EEA or you use suppliers based outside the EEA]. We meet our obligations under GDPR by ensuring that the information has equivalent protection as if it were being held within the EEA. We do this by ensuring that any third parties processing your data outside the EEA either benefits from an adequacy determination for GDPR purposes and/or, where appropriate, we have entered into a data processing agreement which contains model EU clauses.

We may also disclose your personal information if we are required to do so under any legal obligation and may use external data for the purposes of fraud prevention and credit risk reduction, or where doing so would not infringe your rights, but is necessary and in the public interest.

Other than this, we will not share your information with other organisations without your consent.
