Privacy Policy

Effective Date: May 28, 2018

Who am I?

Ian Whalley, I'm an independent graphic designer offering design and consulting services. I currently work from my studio in Somerset West, South Africa.

This Privacy Policy explains what happens to any personal data that you provide to me, or that I might collect from you. If you have any questions about this notice, or want to find out what data I hold, or ask for rectification and/or deletion of your information, feel free to contact me at:

Why do I need to process personal data and what is the lawful basis for doing so?

I only collect a minimal amount of personal data to correspond with you about undertaking design or consulting work or to enter into a contract with you and to fulfill the terms of those contracts. So the lawful basis is therefore contractual.

What data do I collect?

Your name, email address, contact number.

How do I process personal data?

Data is stored on secure, reliable and GDPR compliant computer systems and is only accessible by me. I take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Transfer of personal data

Your information, including Personal Data, may be transferred to — and maintained on — computers located outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction where the data protection laws may differ than those from your jurisdiction.

If you are located outside South Africa and choose to provide information to me, please note that I transfer the data, including Personal Data, to South Africa and process it there. Your consent to this Privacy Policy followed by your submission of such information represents your agreement to that transfer.

When do I share your data?

I only pass your data to third parties in the following circumstances:

  • when you have provided your explicit consent for me to pass data to a named third party; 
  • when I am using a third party purely for the purposes of processing data on my behalf and I have in place a data processing agreement with that third party that fulfills my legal obligations in relation to the use of third party data processors; or
  • when I am required by law to share your data. 

In addition, I will only pass data to third parties where appropriate safeguards are in place as defined by Article 46 of the General Data Protection Regulation.

If you are a resident of the European Economic Area (EEA), you have certain data protection rights. I aim to take reasonable steps to allow you to correct, amend, delete, or limit the use of your Personal Data.
