We, Leika, will hold your information and for the purposes of the Data Protection Act 1998, we are the data controller. Visitors to our websites When someone visits our website,, or our app Leika, we collect standard internet log information (including but not limited to location data, time zone setting, the internet protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the internet, browser type and version) and details of visitor behaviour patterns (including but not limited to the full Uniform Resource Locators (URL) click stream to, through and from our website, page response times, services you viewed or searched for and length of visits to certain pages). This does not include personal information related to a person but it includes user behaviour. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the website. · Where is this information held: Google Analytics and various products listed below in the table regarding cookie usage you can see their privacy policy here and Amazon Web Services, you can see their privacy policy here and Google Analytics. Uses made of the information When you register with Leika (via the app or the website) either directly or indirectly through an intermediary, such as an online broker, we store information that you have consented to be supplied including your contact information and business requirements. This information is stored in a secure CRM system. We use this information to store account history and contact you via email or phone during and after the sales process based on the requirements you have given us. We also hold this information for a maximum of seven years in our CRM for financial requirements and two years for marketing communications to continue to provide any services to you that you have requested and to carry out our obligations arising from any contracts entered into between you and us. We may also contact you about services similar to those which were the subject of your original communications with us, but only where you have opted in to marketing communications when you submitted your contact details to us, or subsequently. You can be suppressed from our CRM system by contacting and all of our e-marketing communications have a clear ‘unsubscribe’ mechanism where you do not wish to receive further marketing from us. People who make a complaint to us When we receive a complaint we make up a file containing the details of the complaint. This normally contains the identity of the complainant and any other individuals involved in the complaint. We will only use the personal information we collect to process the complaint and to check on the level of service we provide. We do compile and publish statistics showing information like the number of complaints we receive, but not in a form which identifies anyone personally. We usually have to disclose the complainant’s identity to whoever the complaint is about. This is inevitable where, for example, the accuracy of a person’s record is in dispute. If a complainant doesn’t want information identifying him or her to be disclosed, we will try to respect that. However, it may not be possible to handle a complaint on an anonymous basis. We will keep personal information contained in complaint files in line with our retention policy. This means that information relating to a complaint will be retained for two years from closure in a secure environment. Similarly, where enquiries are submitted to us we will only use the information supplied to us to deal with the enquiry and any subsequent issues and to check on the level of service we provide. When we take enforcement action against someone, we may publish the identity of the defendant in our Annual Report or elsewhere. Usually we do not identify any complainants unless the details have already been made public. Your right to access personal information we hold about you We try to be as open as we can be in terms of giving people access to their personal information which may be stored by us. Individuals can find out if we hold any personal information subject to the exclusions set out in the Data Protection Act 1998, by making a ‘subject access request’ under the Data Protection Act 1998. If we do hold information about you we will: · give you a description of it; · tell you why we are holding it; · tell you who it could be disclosed to; and · let you have a copy of the information in an intelligible form. To make a request for access to the personal information we may hold you need to put the request in writing addressing it to Leika, 35 Kingsland Rd, London E2 8AA. Any access request will be subject to a fee of £10 to meet our costs in providing you with such information. Disclosure of personal information In many circumstances we will not disclose personal data without consent. However, when we investigate a complaint, for example, we will need to share personal information with the organisation concerned and with other relevant bodies. We may also share your information with third parties: · in the event we sell or buy any business or assets, in which case we may disclose your personal information to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets. · if Leika or substantially all of its assets are acquired by a third party, in which case personal information held by it about its customers will be one of the transferred assets. · to assist us in the improvement and optimisation of the website we may share your information with analytics and search providers (data is anonymous) · to distribute publications and our e-marketing newsletter in accordance with the terms of this privacy and cookie policy and approved consent. · if we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal information in order to comply with any legal obligation, or in order to enforce or apply our Terms of Use and other agreements, or to protect the rights, property, or safety of Headspace Group, our clients, or others. If we refer any dispute between us to the ODR Platform, and/or we agree to engage in any alternative dispute resolution (ADR) procedure with you through the Platform, then to the extent that your personal data is relevant to the dispute we may disclose it to the European Commission, as operator of the ODR Platform, and to any ADR provider appointed to deal with the dispute.
