What personal information we collect
The types of personal information we collect will be based on the way in which you interact with us. The majority of this information will be personal information, including your name, email address, postal address, telephone number, age and gender. The nature of the personal information collected will be based on how you interact with us, which is detailed in the following section. In all cases we only collect information that we need.
What we collect in your personal information and how it is stored
In almost all cases will only ever contact you following initial contact by you or following provision of personal information by you. We use and store your personal information in the following ways:
- When you buy any items from our online shop (Online Programme, Webinar Programme, Master-class, Personal Consultation, Learning Zone or Situational Judgement Test) we need to collect your personal details (name, email address, postal address, telephone number) and credit/debit card information, to take payment for your goods and to deliver the goods to you. These personal details are held within our website on the eCommerce platform, WooCommerce and transactions are processed using Stripe. Bselected Ltd never has access to your credit/debit card details when payment is taken in this way. Financial transaction data, excluding credit/debit card details, is held for as long as the law requires us to for tax or accounting purposes, which may be up to six years from the transaction date.
- When you contact us with a query of any kind by email (e.g. regarding our newsletter, an event, a product, our website or our online shop) we use the information you have provided to respond to your initial message. We then delete any emails considered to be solved and will not hold any information (emails or email addresses) we deem to be no longer needed.
- When you send us a direct message on a social media platform (e.g. Facebook, Twitter or Instagram) we use any personal information provided to respond to your message. We may also, on occasion, contact you first via direct message on a social media platform for such means as notifying you that you have won a competition. Following the resolution of any such correspondence, whether initiated by you or by us, we will then delete the messages both parties have sent.
- You may interact with us via a page, group or account on a social media platform (e.g. Facebook, Twitter or Instagram). In these cases, your interaction with us is stored on that page, group or account on which it was posted. Such interactions may include personal information such as your name. If you would like any such interactions to be removed please either delete the interaction yourself, send us a message on the platform in question, or email us at email@example.com. The personal information stored will be determined by your privacy settings on the social media platform in question.
- When you use our website anonymous user details will be collected to enable development of the website and for usage tracking, which is undertaken by Google Analytics. Further details of this type of data collection can be found in our Cookies section.
- We may be required to process your personal information to fulfil a legal, regulatory or tax obligation.
How long we store your information
We will keep your personal information collected for financial transactions, excluding your credit/debit card details, for as long as the law requires us to for tax or accounting purposes (which may be up to six years after a particular transaction).
When you unsubscribe from our newsletter your personal information will automatically be deleted through our mailing list database software, Mailchimp. If you wish to rejoin the mailing list at any point you will need to do this via our website www.bselected.com
In respect of any other personal information, we will retain it for no longer than necessary for the purposes for which it was collected, taking into account guidance issued by the Information Commissioner’s Office.
When we share your personal information
We will always only use your information for the purposes for which it was obtained.

We may need to share your information with data hosting providers or service providers, such as our website developer, who help us to deliver our services. These providers will only act under our instruction and are subject to pre-contract scrutiny and contractual obligations containing strict data protection clauses.
We will also comply with requests where disclosure is required by law, for example, we may disclose your personal information to the government for tax investigation purposes, or to law enforcement agencies for the prevention and detection of crime. We may also share your information with the emergency services if we reasonably think there is a risk of serious harm or abuse to you or someone else.
Collecting your consent

Protecting your personal information
We undertake biannual reviews of those who have access to information that we hold to ensure that your information is only accessible by appropriately trained staff and contractors.
If you use your credit or debit card to buy something or make a booking online, we pass your card details securely using Woocommerce to Stripe. We never have direct access to your payment information.
Whilst we take all possible precautions to ensure your personal data is safe, there are always inherent risks in sending information by public networks or using public computers and we cannot 100% guarantee the security of data (including personal information) disclosed or transmitted over public networks.
Your rights to your personal information
Data protection legislation gives you the right to request access to personal information about you which is processed and stored by bselected Performance Consulting Ltd and to have any inaccuracies corrected.

This information will help us to locate your records. Please send these documents via post to 17 Browns Hill, Dartmouth, Devon, TQ6 9NU or email them to email@example.com
We will respond within 28 days, on receipt of your written request and copies of your identification documents. We reserve the right to charge a fee to process the request.
How we use Legitimate Interest
If we want to contact you on the basis of legitimate interest, bselected Ltd will always create an legitimate interest impact assessment (LIA) prior to contacting you. Legitimate interest is the use of personal data by a data controller (in this case, us) that are deemed necessary (e.g. to provide the product or service) or reasonably to be expected by you. Some of the examples of why we would contact you on the basis of legitimate interest are:
- To confirm that you are on our mailing list
- To confirm you have purchased a place for one of our events
- To confirm we have received your entry to a competition, and to subsequently let you know whether you were successful or not in the competition.
- To send you information about the event(s) you have entered
- To notify you that you have been removed from our mailing list
- For upgrades of our terms and conditions, this policy or any other agreements that we have between you and us.

External websites and social media platforms
We have strict security measures in place to attempt to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of personal information under our control. Whilst we can’t ensure or guarantee that loss, misuse or alteration of information won’t occur, we will always use standard industry methods to prevent this.
The transmission of information across the internet is never completely secure, and whilst we will always do our best to protect the security of your information, we cannot ensure or guarantee that loss, misuse or alteration of information won’t occur whilst you or we are transferring this information.
