We value your data privacy.
Whether you’re streaming a movie on your smartphone or buying groceries from your web browser, your personal information – from your email address to your credit card details – is being held and processed by more and more companies and organisations online. This means we can all enjoy faster, more convenient and cost-effective services, but it also means your information can be vulnerable to theft or misuse.
When it comes to online services and transactions, there is no such thing as a foolproof cyber security plan, but the risk of data loss or theft can be significantly reduced through the diligent implementation of risk-based business practices; including investing in suitable staff training and IT infrastructure, as well as submitting to regular independent IT and data protection audits. Not every company, however, has the same level of cyber security in place, which is why the UK Data Protection Act 2018 which implemented the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), gave individuals new and enhanced rights over how their personal information is used, as well as new responsibilities to the companies handling your data.
At Legado, we provide software as a service and so we must adhere to strict rules about how we collect, handle and store your personal information. Our team has chosen to make privacy a core value of our business practice and, therefore, upholding your privacy and protecting your personal data will always be our priority.

- One of our employees
- Referred to us by one of our employees for a potential employee position

Our role as a data controller
We act as a data controller, determining the purpose and means of how some of your personally identifiable information is collected, processed and stored in the circumstances listed below. All personally identifiable information is used and held in accordance with our privacy and security policies.
Most of the personal information we process as data controller is provided to us directly by you. However we also receive information indirectly from certain sources, as indicated above.
We do not share personal information we process as data controller with any third party.
In relation to each category of personal data we hold as data controller, we remove/destroy that data on request or where no longer applicable/required for the original purpose.
Our role as a data processor
In this context, where you are a registered user of our application which is provided by our customer, we act as a data processor, processing your personal information on behalf of our customer.
Legado will collect account data such as name and email address, with the source of this data being you (or our customer providing the Legado service to you) for the purpose of operating our website, providing our services and maintaining back-ups of our databases and communication with you.
When we act as processor, processing your personal information on behalf of our customer, we process personal data in accordance with and for the purpose of the agreement we have in place with our customer. Types of personal data we process in this context include:
- Name and email address;
If certain features are enabled, such as upload:
- special category data (e.g. passport images)
Keeping your information safe
Handling your personal information with respect and transparency is an essential part of upholding your data privacy. At Legado, we therefore work to exceed the minimum requirements set by the UK government’s cyber security accreditation scheme Cyber Essentials Plus; we are certified to the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 standard, in addition to procuring third-party services to provide ongoing analysis, reporting and monitoring of online activity at national level.
When you provide us with personally identifying information, we take steps to ensure that appropriate cybersecurity and organisational controls are in place to protect it. These include:
We encrypt data using industry standard algorithms throughout all verification steps. This means that any data input to our systems for verification is securely sent and received. Data is also encrypted at rest when on our servers using AES256 encryption standards.
All of our web traffic is encrypted over TLS /SSL and protected by Certificate Pinning to prevent man in the middle attacks. Our security team monitor and carry out daily automated vulnerability scanning across all of our systems and infrastructure.
We use a number of carefully selected third parties to help provide our services to you. We expect these third parties to uphold security policies that adhere to the same requirements we ourselves impose.
When we use a third-party (a data processor) to process personal data, we enter into a written contract and data processing agreement to ensure that they fulfil the obligations of the data protection law.
If we are requested to share sensitive information by law enforcement, we will do so in accordance with our obligations under UK law.
Legado has developed a set of security policies for our team and partners. Further information about these security policies can be made available upon request.
Keeping your information up-to-date
We want to ensure all personally identifying information is kept accurate and up-to-date. Should your details change, please do not hesitate to contact us using the contact details above.
