HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION
We collect, process, store and disclose personal data for a variety of different reasons, but in all cases when the law allows us to.
Whether you are subject to the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) or the UK Data Protection Act 2018, the law requires that companies processing personal data set out the specific lawful basis on which they process that data.
For the personal data identified in this policy where we act as the data controller, we rely on the following lawful basis to processing your data:
1. Consent: we use your consent as a legal basis for processing your personal data or for the purposes of marketing communications, in particular, where you register your interest with us through our Website or otherwise (such as at a trade show or networking event). You have the right to withdraw consent at any time by contacting us, or by opting out through any marketing communication we may provide.
2. Contractual Obligations: where we need to perform the contract we are about to enter into or have entered into with your employer.
3. Regulatory or Legal Obligations: where we need to comply with a legal obligation.
4. Legitimate Interests: where it is necessary for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) and your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests. We rely on a wide range of legitimate interests as a business:
a. for marketing activities (other than where we rely on your consent);
b. to correspond or communicate with you;
c. to verify the accuracy of data that we hold about you;
d. to preserve the integrity of our network and information security and, in particular, for us to take steps to protect your information against loss or damage, theft or unauthorised access;
e. for prevention of fraud and other criminal activities;
f. to improve our Website, products and Services, in particular through analysing how you interact with us through our Website, products and Services to more generally improve your user experience;
g. for the management of queries, complaints, or claims, including when complying with a request from you in connection with the exercise of your data protection rights;
h. for the establishment and defence of our legal rights.
Where we act a data processor on behalf of our customers, we will predominantly rely on contractual obligations, legitimate interests and legal obligations as justification for processing your data.
We have summarised below the various ways we use your personal data and our legal basis for doing so.
We strive to provide you with choices regarding certain personal data uses, particularly around marketing and advertising. In general we employ the following data control mechanisms when we use your personal data for the purpose of direct marketing:
When you register your interest on our Website, you are invited to consent to receiving marketing and other promotional information from us. You may withdraw this consent at any time by contacting us. Withdrawing consent will not prevent us from sending service messaging about eLocker Manager (such as planned downtime, upgrades, patches or changes to our terms and policies).
Promotional offers from us
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 and offers may be relevant for you (we call this marketing).
We will get your express opt-in consent before we share your personal data with any third party for marketing purposes.
Where you opt out of receiving these marketing messages, this will not apply to personal data provided to us as a result of a product/service purchase, warranty registration, product/service experience or other transactions.

· for the smooth and safe operation of eLocker and our website;
· to manage your preferences and remember you for future visits;

HOW WE SAFEGUARD YOUR DATA
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.

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.
In some circumstances we will anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes, in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.
