    • You are an employee, former employee or a relative of either

    Employees should refer to the Employee Privacy Notice for further information about our privacy policy in respect of employees.

    Where an employee has provided us with personal information about a spouse, civil partner or other family members/friend (perhaps in relation to private medical insurance or other benefits or as an emergency contact), it is the employee’s responsibility to inform that person that the employee has provided us with their details and that we will be processing it as an emergency contact or in connection with the relevant benefit and/or policy in accordance with this privacy policy.

    • Your relationship with us is not covered by any of the above

    We may hold your contact details and personal information as a result of an interaction between you and one of our employees or prospective employees. This interaction could be as a result of business development and/or business networking.

We may occasionally share non-personal, anonymised, and statistical data with third parties. Below are the parties with whom we may share personal information and why.

    Within the Group: Our business is supported by a variety of people who are part of the Keen Thinking’s teams and functions, including those who are part of other companies that comprise Group as set out in Section 1. Personal information will be made available to other members of the Group if necessary for the provision of Services, account administration, sales and marketing, customer and technical support, and business and product development, for instance. All of our employees within the Group and any contractors are required to follow our data privacy and security policies when handling personal information.

    Our business partners: We work with and/or partner with third parties to deliver Services, provide sales and other administrative services or to host events, conferences and/or seminars. As part of these arrangements, you may be a customer of the Group and our business partners. As such, we and our business partners may collect information about you. The Group will handle personal information in accordance with this Policy, and we encourage you to review the privacy policies of our business partners to learn more about how they collect, use, and share personal information.

    Third-party providers: You may choose to integrate our Services with other third party websites or use GEMS to enable access to the website content of, correspond with, and purchase products and services from, third parties via their websites or integrate them with your third party email provider or cloud storage provider to add new functionality or change the behaviour of the Services. Doing so may give those third parties access to your account with us and any information about you like your name and email address, and any content you choose to use in connection with those third parties’ websites. Third-party provider’s policies and procedures are not controlled by us, and this privacy policy does not cover how third-party providers use your information. We do not endorse or approve any third-party website nor the content of any of the third-party website made available via the Services. We encourage you to review the privacy policy of third parties before connecting to or using their applications or services to learn more about their privacy and information handling practices.

    Our third-party service providers: We partner with and are supported by service providers around the world. Personal information will be made available to these parties only when necessary to fulfil the services they provide to us, including (without limitation) software, system, and platform support, payment providers, direct marketing services, cloud hosting services, advertising, data analytics and order fulfilment and delivery. Our third-party service providers are not permitted to share or use the personal information we make available to them for any other purpose than to provide services to us.

    Other third parties: We will share personal information when we believe it is required or in our legitimate interests to do so, such as:

    • to comply with legal obligations and respond to requests from government agencies, including law enforcement and other public authorities;

    1. Where we store and process personal information

    We take steps to ensure that the information we collect is processed according to this Policy and the requirements of applicable law wherever the data is located.

    We store information in hard copy files, which are stored in our offices and/or in archived storage space in the UK. We also store information in electronic files using a cloud hosting service, through the provider AWS (Amazon Web Services), located in Ireland. We also store information on servers within the European Union hosted by AWS (Amazon Web Services) located in the Ireland and Mitcheldean. We collaborate with third parties such as cloud hosting services, suppliers, and technology support to serve the needs of our business, workforce, and clients. We take appropriate steps to ensure that personal information is processed, secured, and transferred according to applicable law. In some cases, we may need to disclose or transfer your personal information within the Group or to third parties in areas outside of your home country.

    1. International transfers to third parties

    GEMS, AWS (Amazon Web Services), Google and other third parties described in this privacy policy, which provide services to us under contract, are based in other countries that may not have equivalent privacy and data protection laws to the county in which you reside. When we share information of customers outside of the United Kingdom and the EEA, we ensure that the third parties make use of the EU–US Privacy Shield Frameworks, European Commission approved standard contractual data protection clauses, binding corporate rules for transfers to data processors, or other appropriate legal mechanisms to safeguard the transfer.

    1. How we secure personal information

    Keen Thinking Limited is committed to ensuring that your information is secure. To prevent unauthorised access or disclosure we have put in place robust physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we process.

    However, when you use our Services in connection with third-party services, we are not able to control the security measures applied by those third parties and it is the end user’s responsibility to determine appropriate security measures for the processing of their data in an environment where our services are used in conjunction with other third-party services provided.

    We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.

    If at any point you become aware of a security incident or you have reason to suspect that your data may have been compromised, please forward the communication to us or report the incident by email to partnersupport@simplicityinbusiness.co.uk

    1. How long we keep personal information

    We will only retain your personal data for as long as reasonably necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or reporting requirements. 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.

    When we no longer need personal information, or when you request us to delete your information, where this is legal, we will securely delete or destroy it. See section “Purpose of the processing, legal basis, duration and retention periods” for further information on our retention periods.

    1. Your legal rights

    We respect your right to access and control your information, and we will respond to requests for information and, where applicable, will correct, amend, or delete your personal information.

    Access to personal information: You have the right to request access to your personal data (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it. If you request access to your personal information, we will gladly comply, subject to any relevant legal requirements and exemptions, including identity verification procedures. Before providing data to you, we will ask for proof of identity and sufficient information about your interaction with us so that we can locate any relevant data.

    Object to processing: of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.

    Request restriction of processing: of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios: (a) if you want us to establish the data’s accuracy; (b) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (c) where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (d) you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.

    Request erasure: of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request

    Request the transfer: of your personal data to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.

    Correction of your data: You have the right to request that we correct or amend your personal information if it is inaccurate or requires updating. You also have the right to request that we complete your personal information on our records if the information we hold is incomplete.

    Withdrawal of consent: If we are processing your personal information on the basis that you have given your consent to us processing that personal information, you have a right to withdraw your consent at any time by emailing partnersupport@simplicityinbusiness.co.uk

    Marketing preferences: To opt-out of email marketing, you can use the unsubscribe link found in the email communication you receive from us or you can email partnersupport@simplicityinbusiness.co.uk

    We will only use your personal data for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If you wish to get an explanation as to how the processing for the new purpose is compatible with the original purpose, please let us know by email at partnersupport@simplicityinbusiness.co.uk

    If we need to use your personal data for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.

    Please note that we may process your personal data without your knowledge or consent, in compliance with the above rules, where this is required or permitted by law.

    1. If you fail to provide personal data

    Where we need to collect personal data by law, or under the terms of a contract we have with you, and you fail to provide that data when requested, we may not be able to perform the contract we have or are trying to enter into with you (for example, to provide you with our Services). In this case, we may have to cancel a Service you have with us but we will notify you if this is the case at the time.
