Quantum Design UK and Ireland Privacy Statement 2018
Quantum Design UK and Ireland Ltd are committed to protecting and respecting any personal information you share with us. We operate as a B2B company and follow the IOC guidelines for direct marketing and B2B privacy rules. As a result, we typically only collect very limited personal information (e.g. Name, position and work address) and all our contact is mainly to do with your company or institute. However, we respect your rights to privacy even if we are carrying out business with a company, so we will make it easy for you to find out what information we are collecting or to stop receiving information from us.
This statement describes what types of information we collect from you, how it is used by us, how we share it with others, how you can manage the information we hold and how you can contact us.
We will always give you the option not to receive marketing communications from us. We will never send you unsolicited ‘junk’ email or communications or share your data with anyone else who might. We do not sell your information to third parties, but we do work closely with our selected manufacturers who help us to provide you with the information, products and services that you request from us.
The contents of this statement may change from time to time, so you may wish to check this page occasionally to ensure you are still happy to share your information with us. Where possible, we will also contact you directly to notify you of these changes.
WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?
We collect information about you when you engage with our website, sales people or through other ways we are visible to you such as conferences and exhibitions. We only collect information which is necessary, relevant and adequate for the purpose you are providing it for.
HOW DO WE USE THIS INFORMATION?
We will only process information that is necessary for the purpose for which it has been collected. You will always have the option not to receive marketing communications from us (and you can withdraw your consent or object at any time). We will never send you unsolicited ‘junk’ email or communications or share your personal information with anyone else who might.
HOW DO WE SHARE THIS INFORMATION?
We do not sell your information to third parties and will only share with other Quantum Design group companies and other companies we represent.
Due to the international nature of our business, there may be some instances where your information is processed or stored outside of the EU. In those instances, we will ensure that appropriate safeguards are in place for that transfer and storage as required by applicable law.
There are circumstances where we share your information with our parent (or other companies within our Group) in order to fulfil orders, transactions, handle complaints or provide you with a service or information that you have requested.
HOW LONG DO WE KEEP YOUR INFORMATION FOR?
We will not hold your personal information in an identifiable format for any longer than is necessary. If you are a customer or otherwise have a relationship with us we will hold personal information about you for a longer period than if we have obtained your details in connection with a prospective relationship.
HOW CAN YOU MANAGE THE INFORMATION WE HOLD ABOUT YOU?
You have the right as an individual to access your personal information we hold about you and make corrections if necessary. You also have the right to withdraw any consent you have previously given us and ask us to erase information we hold about you. You can also object to us using your personal information (where we rely on our business interests to process and use your personal information).
