Who we share your Personal Data with
We’re serious about our commitment to protecting your privacy so we do not sell any of your personal data to any third party. In order to make sure that you get the service that you expect, we will need to share your personal data with the following third parties:
- Selected trusted third-party business partners and service providers to perform services related to the contracts we enter into with you.
- Any other third parties if necessary, to comply with legal obligations or enforce agreements.
- Any other third parties if this is necessary to protect our or your rights, property, or safety and/or those of others.
We do not share your personal data with third parties for them to use for the purposes of sending you marketing information, or for those third parties to use your information for their own purposes.
We do, however share your personal data with certain companies who play an essential part in enabling us to provide our services to you, such as payment service providers, IT, professional service providers, system administration providers. We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law.

For how long will my Personal Data be retained?
Techwuman Limited will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.
In some circumstances, you can ask us to delete your data: see the section detailing your legal rights below for further information.
In some circumstances, we may anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.
Transfers of your Personal Data
From time to time we may process (or permit a third party to process) your personal data outside the European Economic Area (EEA) where local laws may not provide legal protection for your personal data in the same way as is applicable in the EEA and the UK. For example, when you book a trip, we will need to provide your information to local accommodation and service providers.
Whenever we send (or permit a third party to send) your personal data outside of the EEA, we will make sure that we take steps necessary to protect your data as required by applicable laws. For example, we may require the recipient to enter into particular contract terms, or we will make sure that the information that we give to them will be limited to what is needed to perform our contract with you.
If you wish to learn more about the safeguards in place to protect your personal data when we transfer it outside of the EEA, please contact us using the details provided below.
Your rights in relation to your personal data

- You may ask for personal data which identifies you to be erased. To do this we will anonymise your data by removing the information that identifies you from the data we hold in our systems.

- You may request us to stop using your personal data where we are doing so under legitimate interests unless it is needed for dealing with legal claims or we have other compelling legitimate reasons that override your rights.
