It’s crucial that the personal data we hold about you is accurate and current. Please inform us if your personal data changes during your relationship with us.

Third-Party Links

This website may include links to third-party websites, plug-ins, and applications. Engaging with these links or connections may allow third parties to collect or share data about you. We do not control these third-party websites and are not responsible for their privacy statements. Upon leaving our website, we encourage you to read the privacy notice of every website you visit.

2. The Data We Collect About You

Personal Data

Personal data, or personal information, means any information about an individual from which that person can be identified. It does not include data where the identity has been removed (anonymous data).

In the course of our operations, we may collect, use, store, and transfer different kinds of personal data about you, which we have grouped together as follows:

  • Identity Data: Includes first name, last name, username or similar identifier.
  • Contact Data: Includes email addresses and telephone numbers.
  • Financial Data: Includes bank account and payment card details. Note that handyside.legal does not directly process payment card details. All payments for services and subscriptions are processed by our payment services provider. They do not share your payment card details with us, but we maintain Transaction Data related to your payments. Please refer to the Privacy Notice of our payment services provider for details on how they process data.
  • Transaction Data: Includes details about payments to and from you and details of any subscriptions for our services that you have purchased.
  • Technical Data: Includes internet protocol (IP) address, your login data, browser type and version, time zone setting and location, browser plug-in types and versions, operating system and platform, and other technology on the devices you use to access our website.
  • Profile Data: Includes your username and password, purchases made by you, feedback, and survey responses.
  • Usage Data: Includes information about how you use our website and services.
  • Marketing and Communications Data: Includes your preferences in receiving marketing from us and your communication preferences.

We may also collect, use, and share Aggregated Data such as statistical or demographic data for any purpose. Aggregated Data may be derived from your personal data but is not considered personal data in law as it does not directly or indirectly reveal your identity. For instance, we may aggregate your Usage Data to calculate the percentage of users accessing a specific feature of our website. However, if we combine Aggregated Data with your personal data so that it can directly or indirectly identify you, we treat the combined data as personal data which will be used in accordance with this privacy notice.

Special Categories of Personal Data

We do not collect any Special Categories of Personal Data about you (this includes details about your race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sex life, sexual orientation, political opinions, trade union membership, information about your health, and genetic and biometric data). Nor do we collect any information about criminal convictions and offences.

If You Fail to Provide Personal Data

Where we need to collect personal data by law or under the terms of a contract we have with you, and you fail to provide that data when requested, we may not be able to perform the contract we have or are trying to enter into with you (for example, to provide you with access to our service). In this case, we may have to cancel your use of our service, but we will notify you if this is the case at the time.

3. How Is Your Personal Data Collected?

At handyside.legal, we employ various methods to collect data from and about you, ensuring a comprehensive approach to data gathering:

Direct Interactions

You may provide us with your Identity and Contact Data through direct interactions, such as:

    • Register to use our service.
    • Purchase a subscription from us.
    • Request marketing materials to be sent to you.
    • Complete a survey or provide feedback on our services.

Automated Technologies or Interactions

We may also receive personal data about you from various third parties and public sources, such as:

  • Contact and Transaction Data from technical and payment service providers (for example, our payment services provider, which may be based outside the UK).
  • Identity and Contact Data from publicly available sources, such as Companies House, based within the EU.

4. How We Use Your Personal Data

We will only use your personal data in accordance with the law. Most commonly, we use your personal data under the following circumstances:

  • When it is necessary to perform the contract we are about to enter into or have entered into with you, such as when you register or subscribe to use our service.
  • Where it is necessary for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) and your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests.

Should such a change occur, the new owners may use your personal data in the same manner as set out in this privacy notice.

We ensure that all third parties involved respect the security of your personal data and treat it in accordance with the law.

6. Data Security

At handyside.legal, we are committed to ensuring the security of your personal data. To achieve this, we have implemented appropriate security measures designed to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used, accessed in an unauthorised way, altered, or disclosed.

Security Measures and Access Control

  • We limit access to your personal data to our employees, agents, contractors, and other third parties who have a legitimate business need to access it.
  • These individuals will only process your personal data on our instructions and are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
  • We regularly review our security policies and protocols to ensure that our systems are secure and protected against unauthorised access and data breaches.

Dealing with Data Breaches

  • In the event of a suspected personal data breach, we have procedures in place to swiftly deal with and investigate the breach.
  • Should there be any legal requirement, we will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach.
  • Our team is trained to handle such incidents efficiently to minimise any potential impact on you and to ensure compliance with our legal obligations.

Through these measures, handyside.legal, under the stewardship of JLE Marketing Ltd, seeks to maintain the highest standards of data security and to protect the personal information entrusted to us by our clients and users.

7. Data Retention

How Long Will Your Personal Data Be Used?

handyside.legal is committed to retaining your personal data only for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which we collected it. This includes meeting any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.

Determining the Retention Period

To establish the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider:

  • The amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data.
  • The potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data.
  • The purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means.
  • The applicable legal, tax, regulatory, and other requirements.

Retention for Legal Purposes

For legal reasons, basic information about our customers (including Contact, Identity, and Transaction Data) may be retained for up to six years after they cease being customers. This period is essential for tax purposes and to manage any queries or disputes that might arise in relation to their contract with us.

Your Rights Regarding Data Retention

  • Under certain circumstances, you have the right to request the deletion of your personal data. Further information on your legal rights is available in section 9.
  • In some situations, we may anonymise your personal data (so it cannot be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes. In these instances, we may use this anonymised information indefinitely without further notification to you.

This policy ensures that handyside.legal manages your personal data responsibly and in line with legal and regulatory obligations.

8. Your Legal Rights

Under certain circumstances, you have various rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal data. These rights include:

  • Request Access: You have the right to access your personal data and to receive information about how we process it.
  • Request Correction: You have the right to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected.
  • Request Erasure: This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it.
  • Object to Processing: You have the right to object to the processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party).
  • Request Restriction of Processing: This allows you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in certain scenarios.

No Fee Usually Required

There is usually no fee required to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive, or excessive. In some cases, we may refuse to comply with your request under these circumstances.

What We May Need from You

We may need specific information from you to help confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to prevent personal data from being disclosed to anyone who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you for more information about your request to speed up our response.

Time Limit to Respond

We aim to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. However, it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made multiple requests. If this is the case, we will notify you and keep you updated.

10. Glossary


  • Legitimate Interest: This refers to the interest of our business in conducting and managing our operations to provide you with the best service/product and a secure experience. We always balance potential impacts on you (positive and negative) and your rights before processing your personal data for our legitimate interests. We avoid using your personal data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you, unless we have your consent or are required or permitted to by law. You can contact us for further information on how we assess our legitimate interests against any potential impact on you.
  • Performance of Contract: This involves processing your data when it is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party, or to take steps at your request before entering into such a contract.
  • Comply with a Legal or Regulatory Obligation: This means processing your personal data where it’s necessary for compliance with a legal or regulatory obligation that we are subject to.


You have the right to:

  • Request Access: Commonly known as a “data subject access request”, this allows you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
  • Request Correction: If we hold incomplete or inaccurate personal data about you, you have the right to have it corrected. We may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.
  • Request Erasure: This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no valid reason for us to continue processing it. You also have this right where you have successfully objected to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully, or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons, which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.
  • Object to Processing: You have the right to object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing. This right also applies where your personal data is processed for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for processing your information which override your rights and freedoms.
  • Request Restriction of Processing: This allows you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in certain scenarios: if you want us to establish the data’s accuracy, where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it, where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise, or defend legal claims, or you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.
  • Request the Transfer: You can request the transfer of your personal data to you or a third party in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. This right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use, or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.
  • Withdraw Consent: Where we rely on consent to process your personal data, you have the right to withdraw consent at any time. This will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you, and we will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.
