The privacy impact of the processing is low, as QC Data holds your information in order to contact you in your professional capacity.

Retention Period
We review our retention periods for personal information on a regular basis. We are legally required to hold some types of information to fulfill statutory obligations. We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as is necessary for the relevant activity, or as long as is set out in any relevant contract you hold with us.

Who has access to your information?
We will not sell, rent or share your information with third parties for their use. We may share your data within the QC Data group of companies.

Third Party Service Providers working on our behalf: We may pass your information to our third party service providers, subcontractors and other associated organizations for the purposes of completing tasks and providing services to you on our behalf (for example to send you mailings).

However, when we use third party service providers, we disclose only the personal information that is necessary to deliver the service and we require them to keep your information secure, use it only as authorized by us, and not to use it for their own purposes. We may also share data where we are required to do so by law, for example, by a court order or for the purposes of fraud prevention or other crime.

We may transfer your personal information to a third party as part of a sale of some or all of our business and assets to a third party or as part of any business restructuring or reorganization, or if we’re under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation or to enforce or apply our terms of use or to protect the rights, property or safety of our employees or customers. However, we will take steps with the objective of ensuring that your privacy rights continue to be protected.

If you do not want to receive direct marketing communications from us about our services then we will not contact you for marketing purposes by email, phone or text message unless you have given your prior consent. We will not contact you for marketing purposes by mail if you have indicated that you do not wish to be contacted.

Security precautions in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of your information
When you give us personal information, we take steps to ensure that it’s treated securely. Any sensitive information is encrypted and protected with 128 Bit encryption via SSL. When you are on a secure page, a lock icon will appear on the bottom of web browsers such as Microsoft Internet Explorer.

Non-sensitive details (your email address etc.) may be transmitted normally over the Internet, and this can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your information, we make commercially reasonable efforts to ensure its security on our systems.

Profiling
We may analyze your personal information to create a profile of your interests and preferences so that we can contact you with information relevant to you. We may make use of additional information about you when it is available from external sources to help us do this effectively. We may also use your personal information to detect and reduce fraud.

Links to other websites
Our website may contain links to other websites run by other organizations. This privacy policy applies only to our website‚ so we encourage you to read the privacy statements on the other websites you visit. We cannot be responsible for the privacy policies and practices of other sites even if you access those sites using links from our website.

In addition, if you linked to our website from a third party site, we cannot be responsible for the privacy policies and practices of the owners and operators of that third party site and strongly encourage you to read the privacy policy of that third party site.

Transferring your information outside of Europe
If you access our website from within the European Union (EU), as part of the services offered to you through this website, the information which you provide to us may be transferred to countries outside the EU. For example, some of our servers are from time to time located in the United States or other countries outside of the EU. These countries may not have similar data protection laws as the EU. By submitting your personal data, you’re agreeing to this transfer, storing or processing. If we transfer your information outside of the EU in this way, we will take steps to ensure that appropriate security measures are taken with the objective of ensuring that your privacy rights continue to be protected as outlined in this Policy.
