Data Protection

The aim of data protection and also our aim as SANHA UK Ltd is to handle personal data in such a way that the personal rights of the individual are protected.

In order to ensure the fulfilment of this objective, bodies responsible for the processing of personal data are obliged to comply with the Data Protection Act 2018, the UK General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) as well as any other applicable data protection laws.

Personal data may only be collected and processed if the GDPR or another law permits this. Essential basic principles of the GDPR are:

  • Purpose limitation
  • Data minimisation

We keep a record of the names and organisations of all our visitors, to ensure that we can account for everyone in the premises in the event of an emergency. Names are displayed on visitor badges and the accompanying visitor passes log entry and exit to different areas of the premises. If you choose to use our guest wifi network, your use of this will be recorded for security reasons.

Special category personal data such as health information

"Special categories" of particularly sensitive personal information, such as information about a person's health or sexual orientation, require higher levels of protection. We may collect, store and use this information if you provide it to us and consent to us using it for a specific purpose, where it is necessary to protect your interests (or someone else's interests) and you are not capable of giving your consent, or where you have already made the information public.  We may collect, store and use information about your health where it is useful to ensure your safety whilst you are in our offices.

We will not store or use information about any criminal convictions and offences, unless you have provided your consent to it.


Who may see your data

The most common recipients of transferred personal data are:

  • public bodies, insofar as a legal obligation exists; and
  • service providers and other business partners, insofar as it is necessary for the fulfilment of the respective purpose and a legal provision permits or requires this or the person concerned has consented to it.

Our banks, accountants, solicitors, auditors and insurers are also entitled to obtain specific data on request as part of our compliance checks and legal obligations or for making or defending claims, although they rarely need specific personal data.

Many of our services are provided in conjunction with our parent company, SANHA GmbH & Co. KG in Germany. For this reason, we share personal data with this company, and sometimes other companies within our Group (being any holding company of SANHA UK Ltd and any subsidiary companies of that holding company or SANHA UK Ltd (with “holding company” and “subsidiary” each as defined in section 1159 of the Companies Act 2006)) if there is a legitimate interest in doing do, such as shared resources. Our IT is also managed and supported by SANHA GmbH & Co. KG.

Our newsletters are sent from SANHA GmbH & Co. KG using rapidmail GmbH, Wentzingerstraße 2, 79106 Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany. Rapidmail is a service with which, among other things, the sending of newsletters can be organised and analysed. The data you enter for the purpose of receiving the newsletter is stored on Rapidmail's servers in Germany. If you do not wish to have your data analysed by Rapidmail, you must unsubscribe from our newsletter. You will find the link for this in every newsletter message.

In order to analyse the success of our newsletter, the e-mails sent with Rapidmail contain a so-called web beacon or a "tracking pixel", which reacts to interactions with the newsletter. In this way, it can be determined whether a newsletter message was opened, whether links were clicked or at what time the newsletter was read.

Within the framework of the success analysis, the following data are processed by Rapidmail:

  • Master data (e.g. name, address)
  • Contact data (e.g. e-mail address, telephone number)
  • Meta and communication data (e.g. device information, IP address)

We currently use a range of Microsoft platforms, for which the data centres are currently located within the European Union or UK. As a data processor, Microsoft may only process your data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.

We may share your personal information in the context of our legitimate interests in a possible sale or restructuring of the business. In this situation we will, so far as possible, share anonymised data with the other parties before the transaction completes. Once the transaction is completed, we will share your personal data with the other parties if and to the extent required under the terms of the transaction.


Transfers outside of the UK and EU

As set out above, most personal data we hold is stored in Germany and only accessible to our group companies within the UK and European Union.

As set out above, we use Rapidmail for our newsletters, with data centres in the EU.

As set out in part B below, in relation to data collected from our website, we use:

  • Matomo for website analysis, which involves the collection of IP addresses of users. A list of its subprocessors and their data centres can be found at;
  • YouTube from Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland, which may transfer data to Google LLC in the USA. The processing of personal data is governed by so-called standard contractual clauses approved by the Commission of the European Union.;
  • Facebook from Facebook Ireland Limited in Ireland, which also may transfer data internationally including to the USA, using standard contractual clauses as safeguards;
  • PayPal (Europe) S.à.r.l. in Luxembourg which uses Binding Corporate Rules approved by competent Supervisory Authorities and standard contractual clauses approved by the European Commission (; and
  • credit card payment service provider Computop Paygate GmbH, Schwarzenbergstr. 4, D-96050 Bamberg which stores data in Germany but may transfer it overseas on the basis of various safeguards as set out at

Should it become necessary to transfer other data to countries outside the UK or EU, this will only be done in accordance with legal restrictions on transferring personal data. If, in individual cases, we transfer your data to a third country, we will provide you with the information required for this case.


Right to withdraw consent

In the limited circumstances where you may have provided your consent to the collection, processing and transfer of your personal information for a specific purpose, you have the right to withdraw your consent for that specific processing at any time. To withdraw your consent, please contact our Data Protection Manager. Once we have received notification that you have withdrawn your consent, we will no longer process your information for the purpose or purposes you originally agreed to, unless we have another legitimate basis for doing so in law.


Change of purpose

We will only use your personal information 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 we need to use your personal information 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 information without your knowledge or consent, where this is required or permitted by law.


If you fail to provide personal information

Every data subject has the right to know whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or by contract or is necessary for the conclusion of a contract, whether the data subject is obliged to provide the personal data and what the possible consequences of not providing the personal data would be.

If you fail to provide certain information when requested, we may not be able to continue our professional relationship, depending on the specific data, why we need it and what risks the provision of it poses to your rights and freedoms. For example, if an individual supplier fails to provide contact details of its finance department or the details needed for payments, we may not be able to pay them.

It is important that the personal information we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your personal information changes during your relationship with us.


Automated decision-making

Automated decision-making takes place when an electronic system uses personal information to make a decision without human intervention.  You will not be subject to decisions that will have a significant impact on you based solely on automated decision-making, unless we have a lawful basis for doing so and we have notified you.


Data security

We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal information from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected data security breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected breach where we are legally required to do so.


Standard periods for the deletion of data

Customers, suppliers and service providers

The deletion of personal data is carried out in accordance with the applicable legal or contractual regulations on data deletion, taking into account legal or contractual retention obligations. We will hold your personal data until we are satisfied that there is no longer any purpose for retaining it. To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

Furthermore, other statutory provisions may require a longer retention period, such as the preservation of evidence within the framework of statutory limitation provisions. The regular limitation period is six years but they can be longer depending on the subject matter. The deletion of personal data that is not subject to a legal or contractual obligation to retain or delete takes place after it has become dispensable for the fulfilment of the respective purpose.



The data you provide us with for the purpose of receiving the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Data stored by us for other purposes (e.g. e-mail addresses for registration in the online shop) remain unaffected by this.


Onsite visitors

We diarise the names and organisations of visitors to our premises and maintain this record indefinitely. Our CCTV is deleted after 30 days.



The collected data will be stored by us as long as you have a business relationship with us. After termination of the business relationship, your data will be deleted. Statutory retention periods remain unaffected by this.


Job applicants

If you apply for a job with us, we will usually keep your name, contact details, current salary and CV on file for up to 12 months, although we may delete it before then if we do not anticipate any need for recruitment applicable to you within this time.



In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal information so that it can no longer be associated with you, in which case we may use such information without further notice to you.


Your rights regarding data protection (Art. 12 UK GDPR)

The data subject has various rights with regard to data protection under Articles 15 to 21 of the UK GDPR. The above contact details can be used to exercise these rights.

Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time to obtain information free of charge about the personal data stored by the person responsible and relating to you, its origin and recipient and the purpose of the data processing and, if applicable, the right to have this data corrected, blocked or deleted.

You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract transferred to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another person responsible, this will only be done insofar as it is technically feasible.

Every data subject has the right to object to the processing of his or her data if the data processing is based on Art. 6 (1)(f) or for direct marketing purposes. In the event of an objection to the processing of your personal data, we will examine your objection on a case-by-case basis. If we are obliged to delete your personal data due to your objection under data protection law, we will delete your data taking into account statutory retention obligations. The objection does not affect the permissibility of the processing carried out up to the objection.

The above rights are not absolute rights and are subject to specific conditions and depend on our processing purposes. If you are interested in using any of these rights, please contact our Data Protection Manager for more information.

You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal information (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request for access is clearly unfounded or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with the request in such circumstances.

Right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority

If you are unhappy with any aspect of our processing of your personal data, we ask that you talk to us about it first and discuss your concerns with our Data Protection Manager. If you are not satisfied with the outcome, you may lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioner’s Office.

For marketing purposes, to communicate with our customers or to arouse interest in our company, we present ourselves on social networks. In the following points we inform you about the associated processing activities.

Data processing for presentation and communication

Social networks enable us to present our company to persons who have an account with the social network (hereinafter "user") and to all visitors to our profiles without an account with the social network (hereinafter "guest"). Furthermore, customers and interested parties can contact us via this profile. Our profiles and posts are generally viewable by users and guests (hereinafter users and guests are collectively referred to as "visitors"). If you comment on our posts or send us a message, this data is stored by the social network and can be viewed by us. We can reply to your comment or message. For posts, your comment and our reply may still be visible to all users of the social network or to all visitors.

Data processing for statistical and promotional purposes

If you access our profile, the social network can store and evaluate your access and all further interactions of you on the website of the social network. As a rule, our profiles and posts can be viewed by users and guests (hereinafter referred to collectively as "visitors"). If you comment on our posts or send us a message, this data is stored by the social network and can be viewed by us. We can reply to your comment or message. For posts, your comment and our reply may still be visible to all users of the social network or to all visitors.

If you have an account with the social network and are logged in when you visit our profile, the provider of the social network may link your interactions with our profile to your account data and process it further. However, it is also possible that data about your interactions with our profile will be stored by the social network for the duration of your visit and processed for further purposes if you are not logged in there or do not have an account. In this case, an allocation can take place, for example, through the use of cookies, small files which are stored on your end device, or in connection with your IP address.

With this data processing, the platform pursues the purpose of creating an interest profile of the visitor in order to use this for advertising purposes. When the person calls up certain websites, information about this call is evaluated and the provider assigns certain interests to the visit. Based on the assigned interests, advertisements are displayed to the visitor. Interest-based advertisements can be displayed by the provider both within and outside the web pages of the social network.

Categories of persons concerned

People who access our profile on the relevant social network (both users with an account with the social network provider and visitors without an account).

Assertion of your rights as a data subject

For information requests or to exercise your other rights as a data subject, we recommend that you contact the provider directly, as only the provider has full access to the data processed in connection with a call to our profile or interaction with us on the social network. The contact information of the social networks for exercising your rights as a data subject can be found under the item "Information on the social networks used by us". In the case of data processing where there is joint responsibility between the social network provider and us, you also have the right to exercise your rights as a data subject against us. In such a case, we will forward your request to the social network, insofar as the request concerns data or processing activities that are processed by the social network.

Further information on the processing activities of the social networks and the existing objection options can be found under the item "Information on the social networks we use".
