At Enable Ltd, we are committed to protecting the privacy of our customers; this policy sets out how we collect, use and safeguard your personal information and the conditions under which we may need to share your data. This policy also covers information we may use for our marketing and communication activities and your choices regarding these activities, your privacy rights and how the law protects you

Our Promise

Please be aware that by using our website and/or any of our services you are agreeing to our Privacy Notice. We may change this policy from time to time and we advise you check back regularly to ensure you are happy with any updates. This policy covers the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) changes that come into effect on 25 May 2018.

2. Who we are

Enable Ltd is a group of payroll and employment administration services comprising:

We are a registered company in England & Wales with Registration No: 455 2449 at Victoria House, 125 Queens Road, Brighton, East Sussex BN1 3WB and our Data Protection registration number is Z8318178.

Enable Ltd acts as a ‘Data Controller’ for any personal data you provide us with. This means we will determine the purpose for which any data will be processed and the manner in which it is processed. This is in respect of your personal data as a customer of ours.

We also act as a ‘Data Processor’. This means, on your behalf, we will process the employee/s’ personal data that you provide us with. In this capacity, customers of Enable Ltd are the ‘Data Controller’ for their employee/s’ information.

If you have any questions about the personal data we hold for you, or want more details on how we use your information, you can contact us by emailing

3. Why we collect and keep your data

We must have at least one or more of the following reasons to satisfy a ‘lawful basis’ to collect your data:

We collect and keep your data in order to provide you with the service you are paying us for.

The nature of our service is to act on your behalf with government authorities such as Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) and The Pensions Regulator (TPR). Legislation dictates that certain full and complete employment records must be kept for a specified period of time. As your payroll and auto enrolment agent, we are required to uphold this on your behalf.

‘Consent’ means ensuring we offer you choice and control regarding your data, how it is used and how we do business with you.

A ‘legitimate interest’ means that we must have a clear and specific benefit or outcome in mind, relating to a business, service or commercial reason to use your information. We must always be mindful of what is right and best for you, and our legitimate interests must not conflict with this.

Some of our legitimate reasons are listed below:

Our customers and anyone we do business with will have the assurance that we will only collect personal information and data that we absolutely require to satisfy a lawful basis. Your data will only be used as required to perform functions specifically pertaining to our business.

4. Your rights

Of course, you have the right not to share personal information with us (the ‘right to object’) or ask us to delete, remove or stop using your data (the ‘right to be forgotten’).

There may be official reasons why we continue to hold and use your data but if you believe we do not have a legitimate reason, please contact us to discuss why you think we should not be using it.

To provide the service you have chosen there will be information we will need, including personal information, so we can fulfil our contractual service obligations to you. If you choose not to provide the information we require, or withdraw your consent, it may prevent processes from taking place and may even result in us not being able to provide you with a service at all. Some of the information we ask for may be optional, and we will tell you if this is the case.

We may make ‘automated decisions’ based on your data. This means we may place you in smaller groups with other similar customers to research and study, learn about your needs and expectations in order to make business and service decisions. This helps us to manage our customer relationships and tailor our services and products to specific customer needs. You will always have the ‘right to object’ and the ‘right to access’ how we do this.

If you find you are unhappy in how we have used your personal information, please let us know. We will take all reasonable steps to ensure your complaint is dealt with efficiently and fairly.

If you remain dissatisfied, you have the right to complain directly to the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) who can be contacted as follows:

Write to: Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire SK9 5AF
