1. Business Contacts

As an independent PR practitioner, it is important that Straight Talk PR keeps in touch with our contacts and to comply with GDPR legislation. For each business contact, we store their name, role, company name, address, phone number and email address on a system with brief notes about your interests and requirements. We may email a small number of contacts up to four times per year, to update them on the service we provide and our availability for work, but only where you have agreed to receive these email messages or if we judge that you are very likely to be interested in the service we offer. We retain email addresses of business contacts for two years after the last communication from them. Under the GDPR, you have the right to see your record, to correct any errors, and to ask for your details to be removed. We will comply with your wishes in these respects.

2. Media Contacts

We keep media contact lists so that we can distribute news and editorial suggestions from our clients. We only send information that we believe is relevant to your publication and useful for your work. For each new client, we will consult you to ask whether you would like to receive material relating to them. We store the editor’s name, role, publication, address, phone number, email address and brief notes. Sometimes, some of the details we hold are shared with a client company during the course of our work. If the details we hold about you are not accurate or have changed, please contact us and we will correct them. You may of course “opt out” at any time. If you do not wish to receive news and information from a particular company we work with, or if you want to have your details to be removed from the media list completely, please contact us and we will comply with your requirements.

3. All Contacts

We value our working relationships, so please be assured that your contact details are stored in a secure system and will never ever be sold or shared with any other person or business or organisation. You may complain to the ICO if you think there is a problem with the way we are handling your data.
