How We Use Your Personal Data
CRGW takes your privacy very seriously and will never disclose, share or sell your data without your consent; unless required to do so by law. We only retain your data for as long as is necessary and for the purpose(s) specified in this notice. Where you have consented to us providing you with promotional offers and marketing, you are free to withdraw this consent at any time.
The purposes and reasons for processing your personal data are detailed below: –
The lawful bases for processing personal data are set out in Article 6 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). We may process your personal data on 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 we are relying on to process your personal data where more than one ground has been set out below. At least one of these must apply whenever we process personal data:
a. Consent: you have given clear consent for us to process your personal data for a specific purpose. Please note that we do not rely on your consent as the lawful basis for processing including your personal data (including Special Category Data). This is because we are legally and ethically required to maintain certain records even if your consent is withdrawn (e.g. where we are required to maintain records by regulators / insurers). Where we do ask for your consent (e.g. to use our services and for marketing purposes to keep you informed of our services) we will do so to comply with the requirement to process personal data fairly, lawfully and transparently.
b. Contract: the processing is necessary for a contract we have with you (for example, to process and deliver goods or services to you and to manage our relationship with you), or because you have asked us to take specific steps before entering into a contract.
c. Legal obligation: the processing is necessary for us to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation (not including contractual obligations).
d. Vital interests: the processing is necessary to protect someone’s life.
e. Public task: the processing is necessary for us to perform a task in the public interest or for our official functions, and the task or function has a clear basis in law.
f. Legitimate interests: the processing is necessary for our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of a third party unless there is a good reason to protect your personal data which overrides those legitimate interests. We make sure we consider and balance any potential impact on you 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 by law). We also need to satisfy specific conditions for using your health data. We rely upon the following ground in this regard:
g. Healthcare provision: the processing of data concerning your health is necessary for us to provide you with a medical diagnosis and/or healthcare treatment.
You have the right to access any personal information that CRGW processes about you and to request information about: –
• What personal data we hold about you
• The purposes of the processing
• The categories of personal data concerned
• The recipients to whom the personal data has/will be disclosed
• How long we intend to store your personal data for
• If we did not collect the data directly from you, information about the source
If you believe that we hold any incomplete or inaccurate data about you, you have the right to ask us to correct and/or complete the information and we will strive to do so as quickly as possible; unless there is a valid reason for not doing so, at which point you will be notified.
You also have the right to request erasure of your personal data or to restrict processing (where applicable) in accordance with the data protection laws; as well as to object to any direct marketing from us. Where applicable, you have the right to data portability of your information and the right to be informed about any automated decision-making we may use.
If we receive a request from you to exercise any of the above rights, we may ask you to verify your identity before acting on the request; this is to ensure that your data is protected and kept secure.

Sharing and Disclosing Your Personal Information
We may have to share your personal data with the parties below in order to provide our services to you. We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law, and when they are processing personal data on our behalf 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.
Examples of our third parties include: a. Sub-contractors for the performance of any contract we enter into with them or you; b. Service providers acting as processors who provide IT, system administration appointments and medical diagnostic services; c. Professional advisers including lawyers, bankers, auditors and insurers based who provide consultancy, banking, legal, insurance and accounting services; d. Also, in accordance with law and regulation, we may be required to disclose your personal data with other medical practitioners such as the General Medical Council and HFEA.
Change of purpose
We will only use your personal data for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If you wish to get an explanation as to 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 will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so. Please note that we may process your personal data without your knowledge or consent, in compliance with the above rules, where this is required or permitted by law.
CRGW takes your privacy seriously and takes every reasonable measure and precaution to protect and secure your personal data. We work hard to protect you and your information from unauthorised access, alteration, disclosure or destruction and have several layers of security measures in place.
We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so. In the event that we identify a personal data breach that is likely to result in a risk to your rights and freedoms we will notify you and the ICO (information commissioners office) within 72 hours of the breach we will also comply with any direction given by the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA).
Transfers Outside the EU
Personal data in the European Union is protected by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) but some other countries may not necessarily have the same high standard of protection for your personal data. CRGW may utilise some products or services (or parts of them) that may be provided by healthcare professionals in non-EU countries, which means that we may transfer information which is submitted by you outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”) to fulfil a contract for services for the below purposes: –
Healthcare provision: the processing of data concerning health is necessary for us to provide a medical diagnosis and/or healthcare treatment. Please contact us for a list of countries where we may send your personal data.
Any transfers of personal data to a third country or an international organisation shall only be carried out on documented instructions by CRGW; unless required to do so by Union or Member State law. Where such a legal requirement exists, the Processor shall inform the Controller of that legal requirement before processing. CRGW will always ensure that when your data is transferred to a third country there are adequate measures in place to safeguard your information.
Consequences of Not Providing Your Data
You are not obligated to provide your personal information to CRGW, however, as this information is required for us to provide you with our services/deliver your products/legitimate interests, we will not be able to offer some/all our services without it.
How Long We Keep Your Data
CRGW only ever retains personal information for as long as is necessary and we have strict review and retention policies in place to meet these obligations. We are required under UK tax law to keep your basic personal data (name, address, contact details) for a minimum of 6 years after which time it will be destroyed.
We also consider and observe our data retention requirements as set out under the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 1990.
Where you have consented to us using your details for direct marketing, we will keep such data until you notify us otherwise and/or withdraw your consent.
