At We Can Creative Ltd (“We”, “Us”) we care deeply about privacy. We believe in transparency and we’re committed to being upfront about our privacy practices, including how we treat your personal information. We know you care about your privacy too so we provide settings that allow you to choose how certain information is used by us.
We understand that clients and users care about the use and storage of their personal information and we value your trust in allowing us to do this in a careful and sensible manner.
This Privacy and Cookies Notice (“Notice”) explains how we collect, use and share information that identifies you or is associated with you (your “personal data”) when you use our Website at www.wecancreative.com (“Website”) or any of our services or where we enter into any other business relationship with you. Please read this Notice carefully.
For the purposes of the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) and collectively the Data Protection Act Legislation, We Can Creative Ltd are the data controller of the personal information we collect and process about you. This means that we are responsible for, and control the processing of, the personal information you provide to us when using this Website in accordance with this Notice.
By using this Website and commissioning work with us, you are acknowledging that we are processing your personal information and, where necessary consenting to such practices, as outlined in this statement.
How We Collect Personal Data
We collect personal information from you when you:
- Complete our contact forms on this Website

The personal information we collect may include the following about you:
- email address or other address
- place of work, position etc
- telephone number
- machine identifiers (such as IP addresses)
- behavioural data (tags and cookies – see Cookies and Tracking section below)
How We Use Your Personal Information
We will use your personal data
- To carry out obligations arising from any contracts entered into between you and us. We rely on “performance of a contract with you” as the legal basis for this processing.
- To ensure that the content on our Website is presented in the most effective manner for you and for the device(s) you use to access and view the Website. (ie to customise our Website and its content to your particular preferences in accordance with the Cookies and Tracking section below)
- Product and service improvement– to improve our products and Services;
- Security– carry out security checks when allowing you access to our Services and to block fraudulent or suspected fraudulent activity.
How Long Do We Keep Your Information?
We retain your information for a range of purposes which determine the period of time for which we need to keep such information. Most of your personal data will be retained during the course of your customer relationship with us. For example (this list is not exclusive): we will keep any website login details for sites that we have built for as long as they are live (as these are stored so that our clients are able to make changes to the site themselves after the “go live” date).
We will remove your data from our systems at the end of the applicable data retention periods, unless we are required by the law to retain your personal information for a longer period.
Our Approach To Information Security
We take appropriate measures to ensure that your personal data are kept secure, including security measures to prevent personal data from being accidentally lost or used or accessed in an unauthorised way. We limit access to your personal data to those who have a genuine business need to know it. Those processing your information are subject to a duty of confidentiality and will only process your information in an authorised way. We also have procedures in place to deal with any suspected data security breach.
While we take commercially reasonable measures to ensure the safety and security of your data, due to the inherent risks with the Internet, we are unable to guarantee the absolute security of your data when using our Services.

Some exemptions to these rights
There are exemptions to these rights, for instance we may refuse you access to the data you require if it would reveal personal data about another person or if we are prevented from disclosing such information by law.
In those cases where we need your consent to process your information, we will ask you to make a positive indication (e.g. to tick a box or append your signature to accept a quote that has been emailed over to you).
