© THE SMART GROUP, 2022
We are conscious of our legal responsibilities as a “data controller” and we support the principles of data protection reflected in the 1995 EU Directive on Data Protection and applicable national implementing legislation. We shall endeavor to ensure that the personal information we obtain and use will always be held, used, transferred and otherwise processed in accordance with our legal obligations
We may as a result of your interaction with our Sites and our communications with you hold and process personal information obtained about you. The types of personal information we collect may include:
The personal information that you provide will be available to The Smart Group, our affiliated companies and trusted third party service providers and contractors for the following purposes:
We may from time to time use your personal information to send you automated email messages or marketing materials regarding our services and the services of third party suppliers, in each case with your prior consent. These email messages may contain features that help us make sure you received and were able to open the message. You may opt out of receiving such marketing email messages at any time, free of charge, by replying to the message with “unsubscribe” in the subject line, or by following the instructions in any marketing communication.
We may disclose your personal information to companies and individuals who perform business functions and services on our behalf. Such functions may include hosting the Sites, analysing data and providing other support services. All such parties will be required to keep your personal data secure and only process it in accordance with our instructions. We may also disclose your personal information if, in our opinion, disclosure is required by law.
We may transfer and process any personal information you provide to us to countries outside the European Economic Area whose laws may not afford the same level of protection to your personal information. We will therefore ensure that all adequate safeguards are in place and that all applicable laws and regulations are complied with in connection with such transfer.
While we endeavour to ensure that the information we hold about you is accurate and kept up to date, we shall assume that in the absence of evidence to the contrary, the information you provide us with is accurate. Should you inform us of inaccuracies in the information which we hold in relation to you or, if we discover that such information is inaccurate, it shall be promptly rectified by us. We do not intentionally retain any information about you which is out of date or which is no longer required.
We maintain adequate technical and organisational security measures to protect your personal information from loss, misuse, and unauthorised access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction
You can request access to, and have the opportunity to update and amend your personal information, and you can exercise any other rights you enjoy under applicable data protection laws, including, for example, objection to and blocking of the processing of your personal information, by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. For security reasons, we reserve the right to take steps to authenticate your identity before providing access to your personal information. Subject to applicable law, we may charge you a small fee to access your data.
We will keep your personal information for as long as necessary for the purposes for which it was collected, to provide you with services and to conduct our legitimate business interests or where otherwise required by law.
If you have any questions regarding this policy, or you wish to update your details or remove your personal data from our records, please inform us using the ‘Contact Us’ facility on our Site. Thank you for visiting the The Smart Group Site.
