What we use your personal data for

Our reasons

Special Category Personal Data

Special category person data includes personal data revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious beliefs, philosophical beliefs or trade union membership; genetic and biometric data (when processed to uniquely identify an individual); and data concerning health, sex life or sexual orientation.


We do not anticipate that we will collect any such data. However, if we do process special category personal data, we will also ensure we are permitted to do so under data protection laws.


You may receive marketing communications from us if you have requested information from us or purchased goods or services from us and you have not opted out of receiving that marketing. You may also receive such marketing communications from us if you have consented to it.


You have the right to opt out of receiving marketing communications at any time. Please contact us if you wish to elect to unsubscribe directly.

Change of purpose

We will only use your personal data for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If we need to use your personal data for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.


Please note that we may process your personal data without your knowledge or consent, in compliance with the above rules, where this is required or permitted by law.

We may share personal data with:


  • Our affiliated companies mentioned at the start of this Policy, Clinical Services International Limited, CSI Clinical Services International GmbH and CSI Clinical Services International LLC


  •  Third parties we use to help deliver our services and website to you, e.g. cloud servers, website hosts

We may also need to:


  • Share personal data with external auditors to ensure compliance with legal and regulatory requirements

  • Disclose and exchange information with law enforcement agencies and regulatory bodies to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations

  • Share some personal data with other parties, such as potential buyers of some or all of our business or during a restructuring – usually, information will be anonymised but this may not always be possible; however, the recipient of the information will be bound by confidentiality obligations


If you would like more information about who we share our data with and why, please contact us (see How to contact us below).

Keeping your data secure and confidential

All staff at Clinical Services International adhere to our confidentiality policy. It is their legal obligation to keep all information confidential unless there is a safety risk.

Every person has the right to withdraw consent for details to be shared at any point.


A carer or representative may be able to give consent if the individual is unable to do so themselves for whatever reason.


The law requires us to pass on certain personal details when a court order is issued.

Where your personal data is held and transfers abroad

Personal data may be shared with our affiliated companies, CSI Clinical Services International GmbH, located in Germany, and CSI Clinical Services International LLC, located in the United States of America (see above: Who we share your personal data with).


Under UK and European data protection laws, we can only transfer your personal data to a country or international organisation abroad in certain circumstances. We will ensure that where your personal data is transferred abroad, it does so in accordance with applicable laws. This may include an adequacy decision being in place in relation to the country that is in receipt of your personal data or we may have in place appropriate safeguards to protect your personal data, including the use of approved Standard Contractual Clauses and/or Data Transfer Agreements, where deemed safe. Alternatively, a specified transfer exception may apply.

How long your personal data will be kept

We will keep your personal data while you have an account with us or while we are providing products and services to you. Thereafter, we will keep your personal data for as long as is necessary.


We will not keep your personal data for longer than necessary. Different retention periods apply for different types of personal data. When it is no longer necessary to keep your personal data, we will delete or anonymise it.
