We are a company registered in England and Wales (registration number 6848574; registered address Highfield House, Mayflower Close, Chandlers Ford, Eastleigh, SO53 4AR).

Accessing our website

Access to our website is permitted on a temporary basis, and we reserve the right to withdraw or amend the service we provide on our website without notice (see below). We will not be liable if, for any reason, our website is unavailable at any time or for any period. From time to time, we may restrict access to some parts or all of our website to all users. You are responsible for making all arrangements necessary for you to have access to our website. You are also responsible for ensuring that all persons who access our website through your internet connection are aware of these terms, and that they comply with them.

Personal information

We only collect personal information from you when you voluntarily submit any such information to us through the website, for example when making an enquiry or seeking employment. Orbis will only use your information for the purpose for which it was provided, unless required for the key purposes described below:

  • for legal purposes: we may use and share personal information for legal purposes, including financial, regulatory, tax and other legal obligations and to respond to governmental or regulatory requests or subpoenas or for litigation purposes;
  • for our legitimate business interests and those of a third party: we may use your personal information to manage our legal, regulatory, financial and business requirements, including obtaining legal advice, in the course of disputes and litigation, internal and/or regulatory or other investigations;
  • for our business purposes: we may use your personal information to help us efficiently operate the services, to count visitors to the website, to enable certain features on the website and for other purposes related to managing our business.

We will only disclose your personal information submitted on our website to third parties providing services to us or for whom we are providing services (located in Europe or in other jurisdictions with less stringent data protection laws compared to the DPA), for example information technology support or technical and organisational services in connection with our business activities or legal, audit or other professional advisors. We may disclose your personal information to governmental authorities, as required or permitted by law, and/or to third parties in connection with extraordinary business operations (e.g. a sale or merger of our business) or other business activities.

We maintain physical, technical, and organisational security measures to protect your personal information against accidental, unlawful or unauthorised destruction, loss, alteration, disclosure or access by us or any third-party processors engaged by us or on our behalf.

We use commercially reasonable efforts and security practices to safeguard your personal information from access by unauthorised persons. Some of those measures include, but may not be limited to, encryption, firewalls and use of Secure Socket Layers (SSL). We retain your personal information for the period necessary to fulfil the purpose for which it was collected and for seven years following the end of our business relationship or the last date of contact with you, unless a longer retention period is mandated or permitted by law.

We do not knowingly collect personal information from children (under the age of 16 years). If we learn that a child under the age of 16 has submitted personal information online without parental consent, we will take all reasonable steps to delete such information from our databases and not to use such information for any purpose (except where necessary to protect the safety of the child or others as required or as allowed by law). If you become aware of any personal information we have collected from children under 16, please contact us as indicated below.

Use of cookies

Most websites use cookies to improve user experience. We use Google Analytics to collect de-identified information about how visitors use our website to help us improve our services and user experience. We do not collect or store any personal information about our visitors as a result of the site usage tracking, so none of the information collected about site usage can be used to track who you are.

Your rights

You have certain rights relating to your personal information collected and processed by us under the DPA and any other applicable data protection laws. You have the right to ensure your personal information is accurate. You have the right to request that we delete your personal information. You also have the right to request that we restrict the processing of your personal information and to request the transfer of your personal information to another service provider. We will aim to respond to your requests within one calendar month of receipt of the request. Where we were unable to do so within the calendar month, we will notify you of our need to extend this timeline (up to an additional two months). There are certain exemptions and restrictions applicable to the exercise of these rights that enable us to retain, use and restrict access to your personal information and we will inform you of these, if applicable. If you wish to exercise any of these rights, please contact us as indicated below.
