One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalise Forging Matters pages, or register with Forging Matters site or services, a cookie helps Forging Matters to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Forging Matters website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Forging Matters features that you customised.

Where we store your personal information
Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
Security of your personal information
Forging Matters secures your personal information from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. Forging Matters secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorised access, use or disclosure.
What lawful bases do we rely on to use your personal data?
The lawful bases that we rely on for processing your personal data are:
- You have provided your consent to us using your personal data for a specific purpose:
- We will ask for your consent to use your personal data to send you electronic communications such as newsletters and emails.
- You always have the right to withdraw your consent at any time.
- It is necessary in connection with the performance of a contract with you:
- Sometimes it is necessary to process your personal data so that we can enter into contractual relationships with you.
- It is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject:
- This would include where we have to retain certain records, for example. Or where we are required to disclose personal data to any regulators or law enforcement agencies.
- It is within our legitimate interests.
Applicable law allows personal data to be collected and used if it is reasonably necessary for our legitimate interests or a third party’s legitimate interests (as long as the processing is fair, balanced and does not unduly impact individuals’ rights). We will rely on this ground to process your personal data when it is not practical or appropriate to ask for your consent, and where we are confident that this will not impact your rights.
We will also rely on our legitimate interests for the proper administration of Forging Matters, and to manage our operations (i.e. maintaining appropriate records and databases).
When we process your personal data to achieve such legitimate interests, we consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative), and your rights under data protection laws. We will not use your personal data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you, for example where use would be excessively intrusive (unless, for instance, we are otherwise required or permitted to by law).
Sensitive or special category data
We do not anticipate the collecting of sensitive data from you (i.e. data on health, ethnicity, race, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, genetic data, biometric data, sex life or sexual orientation).
Where we do collect such sensitive data from you, we will ensure that we obtain your prior explicit consent. You always have the right to withdraw your consent.
Communications and marketing
We will contact you by post, and where you have provided consent, also by telephone and email, to let you know about our events and activities that might be of particular interest to you; about the work of Forging Matters more generally. We provide the opportunity for you to opt-out from receiving our marketing communications every time we contact you.
You can opt-out from receiving our marketing communications, or update your contact preferences at any time by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Right to restrict processing
In certain circumstances you have a right to require us to stop processing your personal data in a particular way.
Right to erasure
You have the right to request that your personal data is erased from our database in certain circumstances.
Right of access
You have a right to ask for a copy of the personal data we hold about you. If you want to access your personal data, please send a description of the personal data you want to see and proof of your identity to email@example.com and is free of charge.
Right to rectification
We also want to make sure that your personal data is accurate and up to date. Please let us know if your details change. You may also ask us to correct or remove personal data which is inaccurate.
Right to object
You can also opt-out of receiving all or some of our marketing communications or request that we stop processing personal data about you for certain purposes at any time by contacting us using the details below.
Right to data portability
In certain circumstances you have a right to data portability which means we will provide you (or a third party you nominate) with your personal data in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format.
Please note that you may only use/ benefit from some of these rights in limited circumstances. For more information, we suggest that you consult guidance from the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) www.ico.org.uk or please contact us using the details below.
We keep personal data for as long as there is a need to keep it in connection with the purposes for which it was collected and in accordance with our Data Retention Policy.
