Controlling your personal information:
We are committed to being transparent about how we use your personal data and take the security of personal data very seriously. We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions, and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
Marketing and Opting Out:
We strive to provide you with choices regarding certain personal data uses, particularly around marketing and advertising. We may use your Identity, Contact, Technical, Usage and Profile Data to form a view on what we think you may want or need, or what may be of interest to you. This is how we decide which products, services, tools and offers may be relevant for you (we call this marketing).
You will receive marketing communications from us if you have requested information from us or purchased goods, services, tools from us and you have not opted out of receiving that marketing.
You have full control over the marketing messages you receive regarding additional products and services, tools that we offer. If you have previously agreed to us using your personal information for direct marketing purposes, you may change your mind at any time and ask us to stop sending you marketing messages at any time by writing to or emailing us at: email@example.com
We will get your express opt-in consent before we share your personal data with any third party for marketing purposes. You can ask third parties to stop sending you marketing messages at any time by contacting them.
Your legal rights:
Please be aware that you have the following data protection rights:
• The right of access to the personal data Changetoolbox Ltd processes on you
This means you can request access to your personal data (commonly known as a "data subject access request"). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it. If you would like a copy of the information held on you, please contact us at:
• The right to rectification of your personal data
This means you can request correction of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.
If you believe that any information we hold on you is incorrect or incomplete, please write to or email us as soon as possible, at: firstname.lastname@example.org and we will promptly correct any information found to be incorrect.
• The right to erasure of your personal data in certain circumstances
This means you can request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.
• The right to restrict processing of your personal data
This means you can request restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios:
· If you want us to establish the data's accuracy.
· Where our use of the data is unlawful, but you do not want us to erase it.
· Where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims.
· You have objected to our use of your data, but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.
• The right to data portability in certain circumstances
This means you can request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.
• The right to object to the processing of your personal data that was based on a public or legitimate interest
This means you can object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.
• The right to withdraw consent at any time
This means you can withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services, tools to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent. If you wish to withdraw your consent, please contact us by writing to us at: email@example.com
Data retention - how long will you use my personal data for?
We will only retain your personal data for as long as reasonably necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or reporting requirements. We may retain your personal data for a longer period in the event of a complaint or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation in respect to our relationship with you.
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, regulatory, tax, accounting or other requirements.
