Brand Thinker is committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. Should we ask you to provide certain information by which you can be identified, then you can be assured that it will only be used in accordance with this privacy statement.
What is personal data?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (EU Regulation 2016/679) defines personal data as ‘any information relating to an identifiable person who can be directly or indirectly identified by reference to an identifier’.
Basically, it is any information that enables you to be identified including, including name, contact info, identification number, location data or online identifiers.
What are your rights under GDPR?
The GDPR provides the following rights for individuals:
What data do we collect?
We may collect some or all the following information:
How do we use personal data?
Under GDPR we must have a lawful basis for using your personal data. This could be because the data is necessary to deliver our contracted services to you; or there is a legitimate business interest; or because you have given us your consent to use your personal data.
We may use your personal data for the following purposes:
You will not be sent any unlawful marketing or spam and we will work to protect your rights and comply with our obligations under the GDPR and the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003.
How long do we keep personal data?
Personal data will only be kept for a reasonable time frame and as required to deliver our services/support. Data will be regularly reviewed regarding retention and deletion.
Storage and Transfer of Personal Data
We are committed to ensuring that your information is as secure as possible. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect and transfer. These include password protection and data storage/ back up on secure platforms.
Unfortunately no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, therefore any information you provide will be at your own risk.
Sharing of personal data
We will not share your personal data with any third parties unless legally required or we have your permission do so.
Occasionally we may contract with third parties to provide our service/product to you on our behalf and therefore they may require access to your personal data that we hold.
Third parties may include, but are not exclusive to:
We will ask your permission before sharing with such third parties and will put processes in place to ensure your data is handled in a safe and secure manner and in line with General Data Protection Regulations.
If any personal data is transferred outside of the EEA, we will take suitable steps to ensure that your personal data is treated just as safely and securely as it would be within the UK and under the GDPR.
Accessing your Personal Data
You can ask us for a copy of the personal data which we hold about you – this is known as a subject access request. All subject access requests should be submitted in writing and sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or to our postal address: Julie Hore T/A Brand Thinker, 44 Kimberley Park Road, Falmouth, Cornwall, TR11 2DB.
Usually there will be no charge for a subject access request but if your request is excessive or noticeably unfounded (e.g. you make repetitive requests), you may incur a charge to cover our administrative costs.
We aim to respond to your subject access request within 40 days.
Managing your personal data
If you believe that any information we are holding on you is incorrect or incomplete, please write to us at our postal address or email email@example.com as soon as possible. We will promptly correct any information found to be incorrect.
