Annual Leave Privacy Statement
Your privacy is important to us. So, we’ve developed a Privacy Statement that covers how we collect, use, disclose, transfer and store your information. Please take a moment to familiarise yourself with our privacy practices and let us know if you have any questions.
Kefron Ltd t/a Annual Leave rely on a different legal basis for collecting and using personal data in different situations. In most cases, the legal basis for processing personal information will be: (i) is necessary for our legitimate interests in carrying out our business, including to grow and improve our Services, provided those interests are not outweighed by your rights and interests, (ii) is necessary to perform a contract with you, or (iii) we have a legal obligation to carry out the processing. Where processing is based on your consent, we will identify the processing purposes and provide you with relevant information to make the processing fair and transparent. The reason we collect personal data and how it is used is included in this Privacy Statement under ‘How we use your personal information’. You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time.
Collection and Use of Personal Information
Personal information is data that can be used to identify or contact a single person. You may be asked to provide your personal information anytime you are in contact with Kefron Ltd t/a Annual Leave. Kefron Ltd t/a Annual Leave may share this personal information with affiliated companies and use it in a manner consistent with this Privacy Statement. We may also combine it with other information to provide and improve our products, services, content and advertising. You are not required to provide the personal information that we have requested but, if you chose not to do so, in some cases we will not be able to provide you with our products or services or respond to queries you may have.
What personal information we collect:
- When you create an account, purchase a product, contact us or participate in an online survey, we may collect a variety of information, including your name, mailing address, phone number, email address and contact preferences.
- This includes information you provide when you subscribe to the Annual Leave service and use such service, sign up to our mailing list and when you report a problem with our site or provide other feedback to us.
- The information you give us may include your name, address, e-mail address and phone number, any optional details you choose to add to the site, and staff leave information relating to holiday, sickness and other absences.
- If you are a staff member of one of our customers then we may receive information about you from your employer as part of your and their use of our services.
How we use your personal information:
- The personal information we collect allows us to complete transactions, support the products or services you purchase, keep you posted on Kefron Ltd t/a Annual Leave’s latest product announcements, service updates, and upcoming events.

- We may also use personal information for internal purposes such as auditing, data analysis, and research to improve Kefron Ltd t/a Annual Leave ‘s products, services, and customer communications.
Collection and Use of Non-Personal Information
We also collect data in a form that does not, on its own, permit direct association with any specific individual. We may collect, use, transfer, and disclose non-personal information for any purpose. The following are some examples of non-personal information that we collect and how we may use it:

- We may collect information regarding customer activities on our website, cloud services and from our other products and services. This information is aggregated and used to help us provide more useful information to our customers and to understand which parts of our website, products, and services are of most interest. Aggregated data is considered non‑personal information for the purposes of this Privacy Statement.
- We may collect and store details of how you use our services including search queries. This information may be used to improve the relevancy of results provided by our services. Except in limited instances to ensure quality of our services over the internet, such information will not be associated with your IP address.
If we do combine non-personal information with personal information the combined information will be treated as personal information for as long as it remains combined.
In the case of electronic direct marketing we will provide you with a method to opt out of receiving further marketing materials or with a method to opt in if required by law.
