2. THE DATA WE COLLECT ABOUT YOU
The term “personal data”, or “personal information”, means any information about an individual from which that person can be identified. It does not include data where the identity has been removed (i.e. anonymous data).
We may collect, use, store and transfer different kinds of personal data about you, which we have grouped together as follows:
- Identity Data include your first name, last name, user name or similar identifier, title, date of birth, gender and/or (if applicable) company name.

Nor do we collect any information about criminal convictions and offences.
Where we need to collect personal data by law, or under the terms of a contract that we have with you and you fail to provide that data when requested, we may not be able to perform the contract that we have or are trying to enter into with you (for example, to provide you with products or digital content). If so, we shall notify you if this is the case at the time.
3. HOW WE COLLECT YOUR PERSONAL DATA
We use different methods to collect data from and about you, including through:

4. HOW WE USE YOUR PERSONAL DATA
We shall only use your personal data when the law allows us to do so. Most commonly, we shall use your personal data in the following circumstances:
- where we need to perform any contract that we are about to enter into or have entered into with you (such as a contract for the sale of products or digital content via the Site);
- where it is necessary for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) and your interests and fundamental rights and freedoms do not override our (or such third party’s) interests; and/or
- where we need to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation.
Please refer to the Glossary to find out more about the types of lawful basis that we shall rely on to process your personal data.
We do not generally rely on consent as a legal basis for processing your personal data other than, if you agree to receive such communications, in relation to the sending of third-party direct marketing communications to you via email or text message. You have the right to withdraw consent to such marketing at any time by contacting us.
Purposes for using your personal data We have set out, in a table format, a description of all the ways that we plan to use your personal data, and which of the legal bases we rely on to do so. We have also identified what our legitimate interests are where appropriate.
Please note that we may process your personal data for more than one lawful ground depending on the specific purpose for which we are using your data. Please contact us if you need details about the specific legal ground that we are relying on to process your personal data where more than one ground has been set out in the table below.
To view our legal basis for processing data please Click Here
We strive to provide you with choices regarding certain uses of personal data, particularly around marketing and advertising, where relevant.
Promotional offers from us
We may use your Identity, Contact, Technical, Usage and Profile Data to form a view on what we think you may want or need, or what may be of interest to you. This is how we decide which products, digital content and offers may be relevant for you (which we refer to as “marketing”).
You may receive marketing communications from us if you have consented to receive those or if you have bought products or digital content from us (where we believe that similar items may be of interest to you) or if you provided us with your details when you entered a competition or registered for a promotion and, in each case, you have not opted out of receiving that marketing.
We will never share your personal data with any third party outside the B&H group of companies for marketing purposes, unless you have given your express prior opt-in consent to do so.
If, at any time, you would like us to stop using your personal information or to correct any factual inaccuracies, you can contact us by or post. Be sure to state "Opt-out" in the subject line, and to include your full name, registered user ID (if any) and email address in the message.
To opt out of email marketing communications, please use the unsubscribe link within the relevant email and follow the unsubscribe instructions.
Change of purpose
We shall only use your personal data for the purposes for which we collected the data, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use such data for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If you would like to get an explanation of how the processing for the new purpose is compatible with the original purpose, please contact us.
If we need to use your personal data for an unrelated purpose, we shall notify you and explain the legal basis on which we intend to rely.
Please note that we may process your personal data without your knowledge or consent, in compliance with the above rules, if and to the extent that this is required or permitted by law.
5. DISCLOSURES OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA
We may have to share your personal data with the parties set out below for the purposes set out in the table (link provided) in section 4 above.
- Internal Third Parties as set out in the Glossary at section 10 below.
- External Third Parties as set out in the Glossary at section 10 below.
We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes and only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.
6. INTERNATIONAL TRANSFERS
We may share your personal data within the B&H group of companies, which may involve transferring your data outside the European Economic Area (EEA).
Also, some of our External Third Parties are based outside the EEA, so their processing of your personal data will involve a transfer of data outside the EEA.
Whenever we transfer your personal data out of the EEA, we strive to ensure that a similar degree of protection is afforded to such data by ensuring that at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:
- transferring your personal data to a country, organisation or sector that has, at the time of transfer, been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data by the European Commission;
- using specific forms of contract approved by the European Commission that give personal data the same protection it has within Europe; and/or
- transferring data to a provider based in the US if such provider is part of the Privacy Shield, which requires it to provide similar protection to personal data shared between the Europe and the US.
For further details of such safeguards and for a full list of countries recognised as providing adequate protection, please see the European Commission’s website currently available at: https://ec.europa.eu/info/index_en.
Please contact us if you would like further information on the specific mechanism used by us when transferring your personal data out of the EEA.
7. DATA SECURITY
Our servers are securely located in the United Kingdom and are maintained by a limited number of users.
More generally, we have put in place appropriate security measures (including user authentication software and secure data-sharing feeds) to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions, and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach, and we shall notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
Security of payment processing
The Shop at Boosey.com No bank details entered on the Site are stored on our network servers. All card payments are processed through two layers of third-party payment processor security, 3D-secure cardholder identification (Verified by Visa) and the Monek (UPG) payment gateway service, both of which are PCI-compliant. We also have SSL certificates in place within our secure check-out, providing high-level internet security. Encryption is 256-bit using SHA256 with a 2048-bit RSA key. These are provided by GoDaddy.
To view the data privacy policies of our third-party payment processors and security certificate issuers, please visit their websites, as listed below:

The Boosey & Hawkes UK Hire Library
No bank details entered on the Site are stored on our network servers. All card payments are processed through third-party payment processor security using the Stripe payment system with data servers based in the US. If you are located in the EEA or Switzerland, Stripe complies with applicable laws to provide an adequate level of data protection for the transfer of personal data. Stripe is certified under the EU-US and the Swiss-US Privacy Shield Framework.

Customers’ invoices are stored for a minimum of six years after the end of the current tax year in which the invoice was raised.
In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your personal data: please see Request erasure below for further information.

9. YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS
Under certain circumstances, you have the following rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal data:
- right of access to your personal data;

- right to restriction of processing of your personal data;
- right to portability of your personal data;
- right to object to processing of your personal data;

- right to withdraw consent to processing of your personal data.
To find out more about these rights, please see section 10 below and the ICO’s website www.ico.org.uk.
If you wish to exercise any of those rights, please contact us.
No fee usually required
You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). We may, however, charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in those circumstances.
What we may need from you
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and to ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data are not disclosed to any person that has no right to receive such data. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
Time limit to respond
We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we shall notify you and keep you updated.
Legitimate Interest means the interest of our business in conducting and managing our business to enable us to give you the best service/product/content and the best and most secure experience. We make sure that we consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative) and your rights before we process your personal data for our legitimate interests. We do not use your personal data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent or are otherwise required or permitted to do so by law). You can obtain further information about how we assess our legitimate interests against any potential impact on you in respect of specific activities by contacting us.
Performance of a Contract means:
processing your data where it is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party or to take steps at your request before entering into such a contract.
Comply with a legal or regulatory obligation means:
processing your personal data where it is necessary for compliance with a legal or regulatory obligation to which we are subject.
Internal Third Parties means:
other companies in the B&H group of companies (acting as processors), which are based in the EU and provide certain administration services to us.
External Third Parties means:
- Service providers (acting as processors) based in the UK, EU and USA who help us to fulfil our contractual obligations and to operate our business, including those providing us with certain marketing and data-processing services (such as Dotmailer (UK and USA) and Zinfonia (USA), order fulfilment services (such as Music Exchange (Manchester) Limited, based in the UK), payment processors (such as GoDaddy (UK), Monek and Visa 3D-Secure and Stripe (USA) and IT and communication services (such as server-hosting, CRM-platform, email and telephony providers).
- Professional advisers (acting as processors or joint controllers), including lawyers, bankers, accountants and insurers, who are based in the UK and provide their respective professional services to us.
- HM Revenue & Customs, regulators and other authorities (acting as processors or joint controllers), which are based in the UK and may require reporting of processing activities in certain circumstances.
YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS
In certain circumstances, you have the following legal rights in relation to your personal data:
Right of access to your personal data (commonly known as a "data subject access request"). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data that we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing such data.
Right of rectification of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, although we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data that you provide to us.
Right to erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for our continuing to process such data. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Please note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons, which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.
Right to restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios: (a) if you would like us to establish the accuracy of such data; (b) where our use of the data is unlawful, but you do not want us to erase it; (c) where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (d) you have objected to our use of your data, but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.
Right to portability of your personal data to you or to a third party. If you so request, we shall provide you, or a third party that you have chosen, with a copy of your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Please note that this right only applies to automated information that you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.
Right to object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation that makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you believe that it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information that override your rights and freedoms.
Right not to be subject to automated decision-making (including profiling) where that would have a significant effect on you. We do not in fact engage in such activities, so this right will not, in practice, be relevant in the context of your use of the Site.
Right to withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. This will not, however, affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products, content or services to you. We shall inform you if that is the case at the time when you withdraw your consent.
