What data we collect

For customers, business partners and prospective customers, we capture information on the individual’s names, job title/role, business email, business addresses, business telephone numbers. We collect and store personal emails when these are given to us by their owners. We capture and audit when, where and how we communicate with the contacts in this category.

Why we collect data

We collect information on existing customers and business partners so that we can manage contracts and carry out our business.

We collect personal data on prospective customers either through the purchase of data through reputable organisations, from information that is publically available (including data on the web), or from face-to-face meetings.

We use the personal data on prospective customers to communicate how we can help them to acquire, grow and sell their businesses. This includes communicating business for sale and free business events about buying, growing and selling businesses. Evolution CBS has ‘legitimate interest’ in communicating information on our advisory services to this prospective client base.

We send out a regular newsletter with information on mergers and acquisitions and events relevant to our services to a set of prospective customers, existing customers and business partners. Where individuals receive this newsletter regularly, they have consented to receive the newsletter.

We collect information from individuals who exercise their various rights under the GDPR through emails triggered by links on this web site.

We do not collect sensitive personal data or personal data on consumers.

When we delete data

We retain data for as long as the prospective customer, existing customer or business partner remains in the job role in the organisation that they work for. We aim to refresh the information on these individuals to check that it is accurate and relevant at least once a year.

Other information on what we do with data

Apart from the situation above, we do not provide data for which we act as Controllers to any other Controllers without the express consent of the data subject.
