Global GDPR Privacy Policy

This privacy policy applies between you, the visitor to this website and/or user of our services and Global GDPR LLP  (‘Global GDPR’), the owner and provider of this website who also acts as a Data Controller under the General Data Protection Regulation (‘GDPR’) and the Data Protection Act 1998. We are registered as a Data Controller with the ICO, registration number ZA356992.

Global GDPR takes the privacy of your information very seriously. We have a few simple principles which we abide by in order to protect your privacy:

  • We only ask you for information which we genuinely need in order to provide you with a better service, for example your name and e-mail address if you want to enquire about our services; and
  • Unless legally obliged to do so we won’t share your information with anyone, other than for the standard running of our business. For example, for you to make payment for our services we would need to ask additional personal and financial information to give to our bank in order to process the transaction.

This privacy policy applies to our use of any and all data collected by us or provided by you in relation to your use of the website and/or the provision of our services to you. We aim to make our collection and use of your data as clear and as transparent as possible, but for brevity it has not been possible to list every circumstance in which we will use your data. We recommend that you read this privacy policy carefully. Any questions or queries you may have can be sent directly to us at:

info@globalgdpr.com; or

Information Collection on Our Website:

We collect information as follows::

  • Google Analytics. We may use Google Analytics to collect standard internet log information about visitors to our website. This is done in order to discover, for example, how many visitors we have to the website. The information is processed in such a way that visitors to our website are not identified, and we do not permit Google Analytics to process your information in a way which would allow you to be identified. You can read more about the use of Google Analytics and their privacy policy on their website.
  • Website Security. We use a third party hosting service to maintain the security and performance of our website, and in order to do this it is necessary to collect the Internet Protocol (‘IP’) address of visitors to our website.

In line with our principles, in addition to electronic data automatically collected when you use our website, in order to provide you with a service or to respond to any questions or queries you may have, we may request and collect the following data from you:

Our Use of Your Data

Where you have requested we provide you with a service, we will keep your data for the purposes of providing that service or for other closely related purposes. For example, where you purchase a service from us, we may e-mail you to ask you if you were happy with the service and if there is anything we can do to improve our service to you. We will never rent or sell any of the data you provide to us, and any third parties we use will only ever process your information for us on a need to know basis and in accordance with this privacy policy.

Other than data we are legally obliged to keep for longer periods, for example as regards taxation legislation, we will retain any data you submit to us for a period of one year. This includes e-mail correspondence. We take the security of your data very seriously. All of your data which we collect is stored securely with appropriate physical, managerial and electronic safeguards in accordance with the principles of the GDPR and any other applicable legislation.

Third Party Access to Your Data

We strive to keep third party access to your data to a minimum. However, data provided by you to us may in some circumstances need to be passed to third parties which we use for the running of our business, for example to our bank or to the hosting provider of our website. Information passed to third parties is used only to the extent required by them to perform the services that we request. Any use for other purposes is strictly prohibited. Furthermore, any data that is processed by third parties for us will be processed within the terms of this privacy policy and in accordance with the GDPR and any other applicable legislation.

Your Access to Your Data which is Held by Us

Under the General Data Protection Regulation you have certain rights as regards the personal data we hold on you. Where you would like to exercise these rights, you can do so by using a Subject Access Request or (‘SAR’).

In a SAR you can ask us if we hold personal data on you, and if so, request a copy of that data. We will also give you a description of the data, tell you why we are holding it and tell you who we could have disclosed it to. We do not charge for the provision of this information.

You can also use a SAR to:

·             ask us to rectify data on you which is incorrect;

·             ask us to stop processing data on you;

·             ask us to delete the data we hold on you;

·             ask us to stop processing your data;

·             ask us to transfer your data to another Data Controller/provide you with your data in a machine readable format;

·             exert rights in relation to automated decision making and profiling.

We will reply to all requests as soon as possible, and in no event later than one month. Not all of these rights may be available to you, and will depend on the lawful basis we process your information.

For more information on your rights under The General Data Protection Regulation, please see the ICO website.

Transfers outside the European Economic Area (‘EEA’)

Some of our third party service providers may be located out-with the EEA. Therefore personal data which we collect from you may be stored, processed in and transferred to such countries, which may not have as stringent data protection laws as found in the EEA. If we transfer your data outside the EEA in this way, we will ensure that the third party provider which we use is compliant with the GDPR and that your privacy continues to be protected as outlined in this privacy policy.

Right to Lodge a Complaint

Our supervisory authority is the ICO and you have the right to lodge a complaint with them if you do not feel we have adequately upheld your rights under the GDPR. Contact details for the ICO can be found on their website.

In addition to complaining to the ICO, where you feel we have breached your rights and the privacy of your data, you are also entitled to pursue action against us in the courts or other legitimate legal forums, such as arbitration or dispute resolution.

Changes to Our Privacy Policy

Although any changes are likely to be minor, we reserve the right to change and update this privacy policy as we may deem necessary from time to time or as may be required by law. Your continued use of this website after any changes means you are deemed to have accepted any change to the terms of this privacy policy. As and when any changes occur, they will be set out on a change log. This is version 1.5 as at 25 April 2018.
