Privacy Policy

MurphyCobb & Associates Limited (“MCA”) respects and values the privacy of everyone who visits our web site at and related sites (collectively: “Our Web Sites”), engages our services or uses our software products and will only collect and use your personal data as described in this Privacy Policy. Any personal data we collect will only be used as permitted by law.

Please read this Privacy Policy carefully and ensure that you understand it. If there are any terms in this privacy policy that you do not agree with, please discontinue use of Our Web Sites, our services and software products.

1. Information About Us

Our Web Sites are owned and operated by MurphyCobb & Associates Limited, a company registered in England and Wales under company number 5665258 and whose registered office is at 10 Orange Street, London WC2H 7DQ.

2. What Does This Policy Cover?

This Privacy Policy applies to your use of Our Web Sites, (including our services or any of our software products) and to all information collected through Our Web Sites, via provision of our services and/or our software products and/or any related services, sales, marketing or events. Our Web Sites may contain links to other web sites. Please note that we have no control over how your data is collected, stored, or used by other web sites and we advise you to check the policies of any such web sites before providing any data to them.

3. What Is Personal Data?

Personal data is defined by the UK General Data Protection Regulation (replacing EU Regulation 2016/679) (the “UK GDPR”) and the Data Protection Act 2018 (collectively, “the Data Protection Legislation”) as ‘any information relating to an identifiable person who can be directly or indirectly identified in particular by reference to an identifier’.

Personal data is, in simpler terms, any information about you that enables you to be identified. Personal data covers obvious information such as your name and contact details, but it also covers less obvious information such as identification numbers, electronic location data, and other online identifiers.

4. What Are Your Rights?

Under the Data Protection Legislation, you have the following rights, which we will always work to uphold:

a) The right to be informed about our collection and use of your personal data. This Privacy Policy should tell you everything you need to know, but you can always contact us to find out more or to ask any questions using the details in Part 9.

b) The right to access the personal data we hold about you. Section 8 will tell you how to do this.

c) The right to have your personal data rectified if any of your personal data held by us is inaccurate or incomplete. Please contact us using the details in Part 9 to find out more.

d) The right to be forgotten, i.e. the right to ask us to delete or otherwise dispose of any of your personal data that we hold. Please contact us using the details in Part 9 to find out more.

e) The right to restrict (i.e. prevent) the processing of your personal data.

f) The right to object to us using your personal data for a particular purpose or purposes.

g) The right to withdraw consent. This means that, if we are relying on your consent as the legal basis for using your personal data, you are free to withdraw that consent at any time.

Further information about your rights can also be obtained from the Information Commissioner’s Office.

If you have any cause for complaint about our use of your personal data, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioner’s Office. We would welcome the opportunity to resolve your concerns ourselves, however, so please contact us first, using the details in Part 9.

5. What Personal Data Do We Collect and How?

Our Web Sites collects certain information automatically, including your IP address, the type of browser you are using and certain other non-personal data about your computer or device such as your operating system type or version, and display resolution.

If you send us an email or engage our services or use our software products, we may collect your name, your email address, and any other information which you choose to give us. For the purposes of the Data Protection Legislation, we are the data controller responsible for such personal data.

The lawful basis under the Data Protection Legislation that allows us to use such information is article 6(1)(f) of the UK GDPR which allows us to process personal data when it is necessary for the purposes of our legitimate interests, in this case, the proper operation and functionality of Our Web Sites.

6. How Do We Use Your Personal Data?

Where we collect any personal data, it will be processed and stored securely, for no longer than is necessary in light of the reason(s) for which it was first collected. We will comply with our obligations and safeguard your rights under the Data Protection Legislation at all times. For more details on security see Part 7, below.

7. How Do We Protect Your Data?

To protect personal data, we take the following measures:

  • Limiting access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors, business partners, outsourced service providers, and other third parties with a legitimate need to know and ensuring that they are subject to duties of confidentiality.
  • Procedures for dealing with data breaches (the accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure of, or access to, your personal data) including notifying you and/or the Information Commissioner’s Office where we are legally required to do so.
  • If we sell, transfer, or merge parts of our business or assets, your personal data may be transferred to a third party. Any new owner of our business may continue to use your personal data in the same way that we have used it, as specified in this Privacy Policy (i.e. to communicate with you).
  • In some limited circumstances, we may be legally required to share certain personal data, which might include yours, if we are involved in legal proceedings or complying with legal obligations, a court order, or the instructions of a government authority.

8. How Can You Access Your Personal Data?

If you want to know what personal data we have about you, you can ask us for details of that personal data and for a copy of it (where any such personal data is held). This is known as a “subject access request”.

All subject access requests should be made in writing and sent to the email address shown in Section 9.

9. How Do You Contact Us?

To contact us about anything to do with your personal data and data protection, please e-mail our designated Data Protection Officer (DPO) at

10. Changes to this Privacy Policy

We may change this Privacy Notice from time to time. This may be necessary, for example, if the law changes, or if we change our business in a way that affects personal data protection.

Any changes will be immediately posted on Our Web Sites and you will be deemed to have accepted the terms of the Privacy Policy on your first use of Our Web Sites following the alterations.
