Information we collect

We will collect personal data on this Website only if it is directly provided to us by you the user, e.g. your e-mail address, name, home or work address and telephone number, and therefore has been provided by you with your consent. Normally, you will only provide such details if you wish to sign up for our marketing and industry news emails, would like to gain more information about our products or other resources, or are interested in entering into dialog about working with us under contract.

We also use analytical and statistical tools that monitor details of your visits to our website and the resources that you access, including, but not limited to, traffic data, location data, weblogs and other communication data, but this data will not identify you personally.

 

Use of your information

We may hold and process personal data that you provide to us in accordance with GDPR.

The information that we collect and store relating to you is primarily used to enable us to provide information on our services or products to you, and to meet our contractual commitments to you. In addition, we may use the information for the following purposes:

  • To notify you about any changes to our Website, such as improvements or service/product changes, that may affect our service;

  • If you are an existing customer, we may contact you with information about goods and services similar to those that were the subject of a previous project with you;

  • To send our marketing and industry news emails from time to time, where you have consented to receive this.

 

Disclosure of your information

We may disclose your information to regulatory bodies to enable us to comply with the law and to assist fraud protection and minimise credit risk.

Where you have provided written consent for us to do so, we may provide your data to selected third parties who have signed a Non-Disclosure Agreement, so that they may contact you about their goods or services.

If you do not want us to use your data for our (or third parties’) use, you will have the opportunity to withhold your consent to this when you provide your details to us on the form on which we collect your data, or you can do so by writing to us at the address detailed above, or by sending us an email to enquiry@selentus.com at any time.

Controlling the use of your data

If you have given us consent to use your data for a particular purpose, you can revoke or vary that consent at any time. If you do not want us to use your data or want to vary the consent that you have provided, you can write to us at the address detailed above, or email us at enquiry@selentus.com at any time.

Where we store and transfer your data

As part of the services offered to you, for example through our Website, the information you provide to us may be transferred to and stored in countries outside of the European Economic Area (EEA) as we use remote website server hosts to provide the website and some aspects of our service, which may be based outside of the EEA, or use servers based outside of the EEA - this is generally the nature of data stored in ‘the Cloud’. It may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for one of our suppliers, e.g. our website server host, or work for us when temporarily outside of the EEA.

A transfer of your personal data may happen if any of our servers are located in a country outside of the EEA or one of our service providers is located in a country outside of the EEA. If we transfer or store your personal data outside the EEA in this way, we will take steps to ensure that your privacy rights continue to be protected, as outlined in this privacy policy and in accordance with the GDPR. If you use our services while you are outside the EEA, your personal data may be transferred outside the EEA in order to provide you with these services.

We do not capture use or disclose sensitive personal data, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.

We may disclose your personal data outside of our company in the event that we sell or buy any business or assets, in which case we may disclose your personal data to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets. In the event that our business or any part of it is sold or integrated with another business, your details may be disclosed to our advisers and those of any prospective purchaser and will be passed to the new owners of the business. Any such transfer will only be on terms that the confidentiality of your personal data is protected and that the terms of this privacy policy will continue to be complied with by the recipient.

Otherwise, we will process, disclose or share your personal data only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with legal requirements or legal process served on us or the website.

You have the right to opt out of our processing your personal data for marketing purposes by contacting us at enquiry@selentus.com.
