    • We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We do not allow our third party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes and only given them permission to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.
  1. INTERNATIONAL TRANSFERS
    • We do not transfer your personal data outside the European Economic Area(“EEA”). In the event your personal data is to be transferred to one of our suppliers based outside the EEA, we will ensure that a similar degree of protection is afforded by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:
  • We will only transfer your personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data by the European Commission.
  • Where we use certain service providers, we may use specific contracts approved by the European Commission which give personal data the same protection it has in Europe.
  • Where we use providers based in the US, we may transfer data to them if they are part of the Privacy Shield which requires them to provide similar protection to personal data shared between Europe and the US.
  1. DATA SECURITY
    • 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.  They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
    • 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.
  2. DATA RETENTION
    • We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.
    • 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 requirements.
    • In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your data: see the section below for further information on your legal rights.
    • In some circumstances we may 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.
  3. YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS
    • Under certain circumstances, you have rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal data as follows:
  • 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.
  • Request correction of your personal data – thus enabling you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.
  • Request erasure of your personal data – thereby enabling 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, 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.
  • 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 – thereby enabling 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 transfer of your personal data – whether to you or to a third party. We will provide 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.
  • Right to withdraw consent – at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw consent.  If you withdraw consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you, or to complete the contract for which we were retained.  We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.
    • If you wish to exercise any of these rights set out above, please contact our DPO, David Boniface, on notices@vohkus.com. If we have reasonable doubts concerning your identity we may request the provision of additional information to confirm your identity.

No fee usually required

  • You do not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee for the administrative costs of complying with your request if it is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive.  Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in those circumstances.

What we may need from you

  • We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.  We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.

Time limit to respond

  • We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests.  In this case, we will notify you within one month and keep you updated.
  1. GLOSSARY

Lawful Basis

  • Legitimate Interest means the interest of our business in conducting and managing our business to enable us to give you the best service / product and the best and most secure experience. We make sure we consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative) and your rights before we process your personal data for our legitimate interest.  We do not use your personal data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent or are otherwise required or permitted to by law).  You can obtain further information about how we assess our legitimate interests against any potential impact on you in respect of specific activities by contacting us at notices@vohkus.com.
  • Performance of Contract means processing your data where it is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party or take steps at your request before entering into such a contract.
  • Comply with a legal or regulatory obligation means processing your personal data where it is necessary for compliance with a legal or regulatory obligation that we are subject to.

    • All terms in this Policy will have the same definitions which are in the Regulations.
  2. WHAT TYPES OF PERSONAL DATA MIGHT BE PROCESSED
    • Because of the nature of the goods and services provided by Vohkus Limited, the types of ‘personal data’ it receives from a ‘controller’ will be the ‘personal data’ of the staff of the ‘controller’, and typically this is limited to: name, business email address, business telephone number.
    • Vohkus Limited will retain such ‘personal data’ for as long as the agreement with the ‘controller’ continues, whereupon it will be deleted or, if retained, it will be anonymised such that it cannot be used on its own or in conjunction with any other information to identify a data subject.
    • If you wish to access your ‘personal data’ or exercise any of your rights under the Regulations you should submit your request to the ‘controller’ in accordance with Chapter III of the Regulations.
  3. HOW WILL VOHKUS LIMITED PROCESS PERSONAL DATA RECEIVED FROM A CONTROLLER
    • In compliance with Article 28 of the Regulations, Vohkus Limited will process ‘personal data’ it receives from a ‘controller’ in the following ways:
      • Vohkus Limited guarantees to implement appropriate technical and organisational measures such that the ‘processing’ of the ‘personal data’ will be in accordance with the requirements of the Regulations, the Data Protection Act 2018 (“the Act”), and all applicable law and legislation relating to the protection of ‘personal data’, and such that the measures will also protect the rights of data subjects.
      • Vohkus Limited will not engage another ‘processor’ without prior specific or general written authorisation of the ‘controller’.
      • A further contract may be entered with the ‘controller’ if necessary to set out: (i) a wider category of subject-matter of the ‘processing’, (ii) a wider nature and purpose of the ‘processing’, (iii) a wider type of ‘personal data’ and categories of ‘data subjects’, and/or (iv) any additional obligations and rights of the ‘controller’.
      • Vohkus Limited will only process ‘personal data’ on documented instructions from the ‘controller’, unless required to do so by applicable law in which case Vohkus Limited will notify the ‘controller’ unless prohibited from doing so by law on the grounds of public interest.
      • Vohkus Limited will ensure that anyone who is authorised to process ‘personal data’ on behalf of the ‘controller’ owes a duty of confidentiality or are under a statutory obligation of confidentiality in relation to the ‘personal data’.
      • Vohkus Limited will implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk (in accordance with Article 32 of the Regulations).
      • Where Vohkus Limited engages another ‘processor’ to carry out specific processing activities on behalf of the ‘controller’ the same data protection obligations as set out in this Policy and any other contract with the ‘controller’ shall be imposed on the other ‘processor’.
      • If the other processor fails to fulfil its data protection obligations Vohkus Limited shall remain fully liable to the ‘controller’ for the performance of the obligations of the other ‘processor’.
      • Given the nature of the ‘processing’ Vohkus Limited will assist the ‘controller’ by appropriate technical and organisational measures, insofar as is possible, in complying with a response to a request from a ‘data subject’ exercising his/her rights in accordance with Chapter III of the Regulations.
      • Taking into account the nature of ‘processing’ and the information disclosed, Vohkus Limited will assist the ‘controller’ in complying with the obligations in Articles 32-36 of the Regulations to: (i) keep the ‘processing’ secure; (ii) notify a breach to the relevant supervisory authority; (iii) notify a breach to the relevant ‘data subjects’; (iv) conduct a data protection impact assessment when appropriate to do so; and (v) notify the relevant supervisory authority where an impact assessment suggests the ‘processing’ will result in a high risk to ‘data subjects’ without measures being put in place.
      • If requested to do so by the ‘controller’ Vohkus Limited will delete or return all ‘personal data’ once the services being provided have come to an end, unless some other applicable law requires the ‘personal data’ to be stored. This does not affect the right of Vohkus Limited to keep any such ‘personal data’ after such date in anonymised form.
      • Vohkus Limited will make all information available to the ‘controller’ necessary to demonstrate compliance with the obligations in Article 28 of the Regulations, and will allow for and contribute to audits and inspections. In the event such an instruction infringes the Regulations Vohkus Limited will notify the ‘controller’ accordingly.
    • Vohkus Limited will comply fully with its requirements, duties and obligations under Article 28 of the Regulations, the Act and all applicable law and legislation relating to the protection of ‘personal data’.
