Privacy policy

Bluware Corp is committed to safeguarding the privacy of our website visitors and service users.

 

This policy applies where we are acting as a data controller with respect to the personal data of our website visitors and service users.

 

We will ask you to consent to our use of cookies in accordance with the terms of this policy when you first visit our website.

 

How we use your personal data
We may process information contained in
– any inquiry you submit to us regarding our services “inquiry data”,
– information contained in or relating to any communication that you send to us, “correspondence data”,
– information that you provide to us for the purpose of subscribing to our email notifications and/or newsletters”notification data”,
– data you provided in the course of the use of our services”service data”

We process the enquiry, correspondence, notification and service data data for the purposes of offering, marketing and selling relevant services to you. The legal basis for this processing is your consent or our legitimate interests to keep contact with you and provide you with the requested information and services.
We never sell your personal data to any third party. We only share your data with third parties where it is required to do so by law and or to deliver the information and or services you have requested from us. This would also only be done with respect to EU’s General Data Protection Regulation.
Sometimes we may need to ask for your explicit consent to process personal data, and when this is required we will make that request clear.
If you do not agree with this policy, please log off and clear your browser of any cookies which may have been placed in your browser by our site in the interim.

 

Retaining and Deleting Personal Data
Personal data that we process will not be kept for longer than is necessary for the purpose of our legitimate interests or necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject.
We may update this policy from time to time by publishing a new version on our website.

 

Your rights according to General Data Protection Regulation
The GDPR gives you important rights over your data. This means you can:
Object to your data being processed
– Ask us to delete it
– Ask us to rectify it
– Ask us to restrict the use of it
– Ask for access to it
– Ask for it to be ported (transferred)
– Confirm what data we process and why
You can submit what’s called a Subject Access Request to us – at any time – in relation to your rights above by contacting us. We comply with these requests within one month (unless there are mitigating circumstances e.g. legal reasons not to.)
Giving and Withdrawing your Consent to be Contacted
In certain circumstances, we may need to have your consent to process your data.
– We may ask for your consent, for example, when you fill in one of our contact forms and you provide your consent by ticking the box on the form.
– We also keep a record of your consent until we no longer need to.
– You can withdraw your consent at any time by contacting us.
Porting and Providing you with Confirmation of what Personal Data we Process
You may instruct us at any time to confirm or port (transfer) any of the personal data we process about you. Please tell us the following:
– Whether you want to port your personal data or confirm what personal data we process, or both.
– What information you require to be ported or confirmed e.g. all your personal data or a specific detail.
– What format you would like your personal data to be confirmed in e.g. spreadsheet, PDF, Word doc etc.
– Which email address you would like us to send it to, or if not email, an alternate electronic medium or system.
– When you would like to receive it i.e. a date and time.
– Any urgency associated with the request.

 

We will endeavor to carry out your instructions within 30 days of receiving your request, but this is subject to your having provided us with all the detail above along with any other relevant information that is necessary to be able to carry out the work.
Also, if you would like us to port (transfer) your personal data, please be aware that if we don’t think your chosen medium and format will be secure, or put your personal data at risk, we will tell you and discuss alternatives with you.
You can instruct us to do this at any time by contacting us.
Purging (deleting) Your Personal Data
You may also instruct us to purge (delete) any and all information we hold about you at any time. We will endeavor to do this with respect to your wishes and compliance with the applicable EU laws and regulations i.e. GDPR.

 

We will endeavour to delete all the information we hold about you in the time frame you request, but depending on the nature of your request, and any third parties involved, this may not be possible.
This is because of our legal obligation to retain certain types of customer information for certain time periods e.g. for tax and or accounting purposes, we may need to keep your contact details on file for longer periods if they appear on an invoice or receipt for example.

 

In any and all cases, we only ever keep information on file for as long as it is needed with respect to the services you have enquired about and or that we have agreed to provide you, or to meet a legal requirement.
You can instruct us to do this at any time by contacting us.

 

Updating Your Personal Data
You can and should instruct us to correct or update any personal information we hold about you e.g. if you change your name or address for instance.
You can instruct us to do this at any time by contacting us.
