Like all other users of cookies, we may request the return of information from your computer when your browser requests a web page from our server. Cookies enable our web server to identify you to us, and to track your actions and the pages you visit while you use our website. The cookies we use may last for a single visit to our site (they are deleted from your computer when you close your browser), or may remain on your computer until you delete them or until a defined period of time has passed.

Although your browser software enables you to disable cookies, we recommend that you allow the use of cookies in order to take advantage of the features of our website that rely on their use. If you prevent their use, you will not be able to use all the functionality of our website. Here are the ways we may use cookies:

  • to record whether you have accepted the use of cookies on our web      site. This is solely to comply with the law. If you have chosen not to      accept cookies, we will not use cookies for your visit, but unfortunately,      our site will not work well for you.
  • to allow essential parts of our web site to operate for you.
  • to operate our content management system.
  • to operate the online notification form - the form that you use to      contact us for any reason. This cookie is set on your arrival at our web      site and deleted when you close your browser.
  • to enhance security on our contact form. It is set for use only      through the contact form. This cookie is deleted when you close your      browser.
  • to collect information about how visitors use our site. We use the      information to improve your experience of our site and enable us to      increase sales. This cookie collects information in an anonymous form,      including the number of visitors to the site, where visitors have come to      the site from, and the pages they visited.

  • to record your activity during a web cast. For example, as to      whether you have asked a question or provided an opinion by ticking a box.      This information is retained so that we can serve your information to you      when you return to the site.

The information about you that we have collected for the performance of our contracts is required in order for us to successfully fulfil our obligations to you. If you choose not to provide the personal data requested, we will not be able to enter into a contract with you to provide the benefits we offer. If we are already processing your personal information under a contract, you must end our contractual relationship (as/where permitted) in order to exercise some of your rights.

We process some personal information as part of a contractual relationship with a Data Controller. Any requests to restrict this type of processing should be forwarded to the Data Controller; they will be responsible for discussing your concerns and making any decisions.


Legitimate interests are a flexible basis upon which the law permits the processing of an individual's personal data. To determine whether we have a legitimate interest in processing your data, we balance the needs and benefits to us against the risks and benefits for you of us processing your data. This balancing is performed as objectively as possible by our Data Protection Lead. You are able to object to our processing and we shall consider the extent to which this affects whether we have a legitimate interest. If you would like to find out more about our legitimate interests, please contact us via


WOOLLEY & PARKS LIMITED holds different categories of personal data for different periods of time. Wherever possible, we will endeavour to minimise the amount of personal data that we hold.

  • If 'consent' is the basis for our lawful      processing of your data, we will retain your data so long as both the      purpose for which it was collected, and your consent, are still valid. We      review the status of your consent every twelve (12) months and treat      non-response to our requests for renewal of consent as if they were your      request to withdraw consent. Occasionally, we might identify a legitimate      interest in retaining some of your personal data that has been obtained by      consent. If we do, we will inform you that we intend to retain it under      these conditions and identify the interest specifically.
  • If we process your data on the basis of 'legitimate      interests', we will retain your data for so long as the purpose for      which it is processed remains active. We review the status of our      legitimate interests every twelve (12) months and will update this notice      whenever we determine that either a legitimate interest no longer exists      or that a new one has been found.
  • All categories of personal data that are held by us because they      are essential for the performance of a contract, will be held for a period      of six years, as determined by reference to the Limitations Act 1980, for      the purposes of exercising or defending legal claims.
