2e Systems and its affiliated companies (“2e Systems Group”) are firmly committed to respecting and protecting the privacy of all personal data received or collected, in strict adherence to the relevant Data Protection Legislation and best business practices. The 2e Systems Group has established this Policy so that you can understand the care and effort with which we intend to treat personal data, as a standard.
- 2e Systems’s data protection and privacy measures are governed by the
(i) the General Data Protection Regulation ((EU) 2016/679) (“GDPR”) and any national implementing laws, regulations and secondary legislation, as amended or updated from time to time
(ii) any successor legislation to the GDPR or the Data Protection Act 1998 (“Data Protection Legislation”)
(iii) ePrivacy Directive (2002/58/EC and 2009/136/EC)
For the purpose of Data Protection Legislation:
1. where personal data is provided directly to 2e Systems through use of the Website, email, or other means where 2e Systems is determining the way in which that personal data is processed for its own use, then 2e Systems will be a data controller of such information;
2. where 2e Systems is provided personal data in its capacity of providing Services to its clients, then 2e Systems will only process that personal data in accordance with the instructions of its clients and 2e Systems will, therefore, act as a data processor in respect of such personal data; 2e Systems’s client will be the data controller of that personal data for that purpose and will be responsible to data subjects for the way in which their personal data is processed as the data controller.
- Personal Data and Basis for Collection
- Personal data means any data or information about an individual from which that person can be uniquely identified. Anonymized data where measures have been taken to make it impossible for a person to be uniquely identified is not considered personal data.
Where 2e Systems is acting as a data controller, 2e Systems may collect, use, store and transfer different kinds of personal data such as Authenticating, Identifying, Demographic, Contact, Location, Device, Preference data.
Additionally, we may collect and store information about how you use 2e Systems Services or submit an enquiry or query through the Website, as well as preferences and interests including information about 2e Systems’s Services that you might wish to hear about.
2e Systems will only use your personal data when the law allows us to, ie, if we have a legal basis for doing so, as outlined in this Policy or as notified to you at the time we collect your personal data, and for the purposes for which it was collected for, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. 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 this. Please note that we may process your personal data without your knowledge or consent, where this is required or permitted by law.
