Smart Numbers Ltd Privacy Notice


This document refers to personal data, which is defined as information concerning any living person (a natural person who hereafter will be called the “Data Subject”) who is not already in the public domain.

The Data Protection Act (DPA), Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations (PECR) and The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which is EU-wide and far more extensive, seek to protect and enhance the rights of data subjects. These rights cover the safeguarding of personal data, protection against the unlawful processing of personal data and the unrestricted movement of personal data within the EU. It should be noted that GDPR does not apply to information already in the public domain such as Companies House data.

Smart Numbers Ltd is pleased to provide the following GDPR information:

Who we are

Smart Numbers Ltd is a UK based telecommunications reseller principally involved in the B2B sector.

Personal data

Smart Numbers Ltd uses the information collected from you to provide services and marketing information that Smart Numbers Ltd believes may be of interest to you and your business. In having made your initial contact with Smart Numbers Ltd, you consent to Smart Numbers Ltd maintaining a marketing dialogue with you until either you opt out (which you can do at any stage) or we decide to discontinue promoting our services. Smart Numbers Ltd also acts on behalf of its clients in the capacity of data processor. When working exclusively as a data processor, Smart Numbers Ltd will be acting on the instruction of its client and will aim to ensure that the client is fully GDPR compliant.

Some personal data may be collected about you from forms and surveys that you complete; from records of our correspondence and phone calls; and from details of your visits to our website, including but not limited to personally identifying information such as Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Smart Numbers Ltd may from time to time use such information to identify its visitors. Smart Numbers Ltd may also collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its website along with transaction information collected in the process of performing its business.

Smart Numbers Ltd.’s website uses cookies, which are strings of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Smart Numbers Ltd website visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Smart Numbers Ltd.’s website.

Any information Smart Numbers Ltd holds about you and your business encompasses all the details we hold about you and any sales transactions, including any third-party information, we have obtained about you from public sources and our own suppliers, such as credit referencing agencies.

Smart Numbers Ltd will only collect the information needed so that it can provide you with its services. Smart Numbers Ltd does not sell or broker your data, although coincidentally there may be times when your information could be contained in data that Smart Numbers Ltd has purchased from a third-party list broker, on behalf of a client.

Legal basis for processing any personal data

To meet Smart Numbers Ltd.’s contractual obligations to clients and to conform to relevant legal obligations they have.

Legitimate interests pursued by Smart Numbers Ltd and/or its clients

Through agreeing to this privacy notice you are consenting to Smart Numbers Ltd processing your personal data for the purposes outlined. You can withdraw consent at any time by emailing; by phoning +44 (0) 3450178179; or by writing to us. See last section for full contact details.


Smart Numbers Ltd may, on occasion, pass your Personal Information to third parties exclusively to process work on its behalf. Smart Numbers Ltd requires these parties to agree to process this information based on our instructions and requirements consistent with this Privacy Notice and GDPR. Smart Numbers Ltd does not broker or pass on information gained from your engagement without your consent. However, Smart Numbers Ltd may disclose your Personal Information to meet legal obligations, regulations, or valid governmental requests. Smart Numbers Ltd may also enforce its Terms and Conditions, including investigating potential violations of its Terms and Conditions, to detect, prevent or mitigate fraud or security or technical issues; or to protect against imminent harm to the rights, property, or safety of Smart Numbers Ltd, its clients and/or the wider community.

Retention policy

Smart Numbers Ltd will process personal data during the duration of any contract and will continue to store only the personal data needed for seven years after the contract has expired to meet any legal obligations. After seven years any personal data not needed will be deleted.

Data storage

Data is held on multiple servers within the United Kingdom. Smart Numbers Ltd does not store personal data outside the EEA.

Data transfers

Although Smart Numbers Ltd does not store personal data outside of the EEA, in certain circumstances we may need to transfer personal data outside of the EEA in order to provide our services (e.g. when processing transactions for international numbers). In such cases, Smart Numbers Ltd is committed to ensuring that third party data processors, who may themselves store personal data outside of the EEA, adhere to the highest possible level of data privacy, and, wherever practically possible, will endeavour to impose legally binding obligations on said third parties. This may include, but is not limited to, relying on EU adequacy decisions and/or PCI compliance regulations, and/or enforcing standard contractual provisions.

At any point whilst Smart Numbers Ltd is in possession of or processing your personal data, all data subjects have the following rights:
