We will not use images of any person who appears to us to be under the age of 13 without the written consent of their parent or guardian.

In out sole discretion, we may refuse to provide or buy services or products to or from you based on the results of our investigations.

Preventing and detecting crime
We’ll use and share your personal information to help prevent and detect crime. For example, we might share your personal information with government and law-enforcement agencies. We’ll also use it to prevent and detect criminal attacks on our computer network.
To do that we use any personal information we hold on you to the extent necessary including any CCTV footage and information we have collected from Credit Reference Agencies.
We use this personal information because we have a legitimate interest in preventing and detecting crime.
Meeting our legal obligations
We’ll share personal information where we have to legally share it with another person. That might be when the law says we have to or because of a court order.
Sharing your information with third parties
Who, why and how do we share?
Above, we have given examples of organisations we might share your personal information with e.g. credit reference agencies. When we share your information with these organisations we do our best to ensure it’s protected, as far as reasonably possible.
We also use service providers to process personal information on our behalf.
We use third parties to help us provide services to you and to operate our business. Examples include:
- UK providers of services in relation to a stand or exhibition we organise;
- UK telesales and marketing services providers;
- UK information-technology service providers;
- UK payment processing service providers;
- UK professional advisers;
- UK survey providers.
Where we use another organisation to provide services or products to us, we still control your personal information and have controls in place to make sure it’s adequately protected.
If we need to transfer your personal information to another organisation for processing in countries not listed as ‘adequate’ by the European Commission, we’ll only do so if we have model contracts or other appropriate safeguards (protection) in place.
If there’s a change (or expected change) in who owns us or any of our assets, we might share personal information to the new (or prospective) owner. If we do, they must keep it confidential.
Countries we transfer personal data to
Vibration Group does not export your information outside the UK directly. It does rely on information technology service providers that may operate or store your personal data on equipment located in a country not regarded as ‘adequate’ (see above). We’ll only do so if we have model contracts or other appropriate safeguards (protection) in place.
Protecting your information and how long we keep it
This section is about how we keep your information secure and how long we keep it. We are legally obliged to delete your information when we no longer need it.
Protecting your personal information
We will protect your personal information.
How long do we keep your personal information?
In all cases, we’ll store personal information for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which we collected it. This may be longer than the law requires. Some examples include:
- details of the services and products we provided to you for six years from the date we provided them;
- details of the services and products you provided to us for six years from the date you provided them;
- your contact details while you are/your organisation is one of our customers, and for six years after; and
