2. How do we use your personal data?

To provide a requested service or carry out a contract with you:

  • To securely enable you to access the Hazy service.
  • To link you to teams you have been invited to.
  • To contact you with service communications.
  • To process payments for the usage of the service.
  • To notify you about changes to our privacy policy and product and services.

Where we have your consent:

  • Specifically, to send you email newsletters and occasional marketing information.

Where we have a legitimate interest:

  • To understand who is using our services and how we may be able to improve them.
  • To hold on to data to bring or defend potential legal claims.
  • To undertake fraud checks.

Where we have a legal obligation:

  • Financial reporting and taxation requirements require us to keep certain financial records for specific periods of time.

Where we rely on legitimate interest for processing your information, we carry out a ‘balancing test’ to ensure that our processing is necessary and that your fundamental rights of privacy are not outweighed by our legitimate interests, before we go ahead with such processing.

You can find out more about the information in these balancing tests by contacting us using the details below.

3. How long do we keep your personal data for?

We only retain your information for as long as is necessary for us to use your information as described above, where it is in our legitimate interest, or to comply with our legal obligations. However, please be advised that we may retain some of your information after you cease to use our services, for instance, if this is necessary to meet our legal obligations, such as retaining the information for tax and accounting purposes.

When determining the relevant retention periods, we will take into account factors including:

  • our contractual obligations and rights in relation to the information involved;
  • legal obligation(s) under applicable law to retain data for a certain period of time;
  • our legitimate interest where we have carried out a balancing test;
  • statute of limitations under applicable law(s);
  • (potential) disputes;
  • if you have made a request to have your information deleted; and
  • guidelines issued by relevant data protection authorities.

Otherwise, we securely erase your information once this is no longer needed.

4. Who do we share your personal data with?

We share your personal information with trusted third parties where we have retained them to provide services that you or our clients have requested, such as data analytics and hosting providers. These third parties comply with similar and equally stringent undertakings of privacy and confidentiality.

We share your personal information with third parties who perform functions on our behalf and who also provide services to us, such as professional advisors, IT consultants carrying out testing and development work on our business technology systems, research and mailing houses and function co-ordinators. These third parties comply with similar and equally stringent undertakings of privacy and confidentiality.

As we continue to develop our business, we may sell or purchase assets. If another entity acquires us or merges with us your personal information will be disclosed to such entity. Also, if any bankruptcy or reorganisation proceeding is brought by or against us, all such information will be considered an asset of ours and as such it is possible they will be sold or transferred to third parties.

Where required we share your personal information with third parties to:

  • comply with a legal obligation;
  • when we believe in good faith that an applicable law requires it;
  • at the request of governmental authorities conducting an investigation;
  • to verify or enforce our Terms of Use (insert link) or other applicable policies;
  • to detect and protect against fraud, or any technical or security vulnerabilities;
  • to respond to an emergency;
  • or otherwise to protect the rights, property, safety, or security of third parties, visitors to our website, our business or the public.

5. What happens if you don’t provide us with the information we request?

If you do not provide the personal information necessary or withdraw your consent for the processing of your personal information, where this information is necessary for us to provide services to you, we will not be able to provide these services to you.

6. Do we make automated decisions concerning you?

No, we do not carry out automated decision making.

All data transfers are made in full compliance with all applicable legal requirements and are safeguarded by the following principles:

Please contact us if you require any further information about transferring your personal data outside of the EEA. We will provide you with the details of transfers of your personal data to any third countries.

9. What are your rights?

By law, you have a number of rights when it comes to your personal information. Please contact us using the contact details below to exercise any of your rights. Further information and advice about your rights can be obtained from the data protection regulator in your country.

Right

What does this mean?

1. The right to object to processing

You have the right to object to certain types of processing, including processing for direct marketing (i.e. if you no longer want to be contacted with potential opportunities).

2. The right to be informed

You have the right to be provided with clear, transparent and easily understandable information about how we use your information and your rights. This is why we’re providing you with the information in this Privacy Policy.

3. The right of access

You have the right to obtain access to your information (if we’re processing it), and certain other information (similar to that provided in this Privacy Policy). This is so you’re aware and can check that we’re using your information in accordance with data protection law.

4. The right to rectification

You are entitled to have your information corrected if it’s inaccurate or incomplete.

5. The right to erasure

This is also known as ‘the right to be forgotten’ and, in simple terms, enables you to request the deletion or removal of your information where there’s no compelling reason for us to keep using it. This is not a general right to erasure; there are exceptions.

6. The right to restrict processing

You have rights to ‘block’ or suppress further use of your information. When processing is restricted, we can still store your information, but may not use it further. We keep lists of people who have asked for further use of their information to be ‘blocked’ to make sure the restriction is respected in future.

7. The right to data portability

You have rights to obtain and reuse your personal information for your own purposes across different services. For example, if you decide to switch to a new provider, this enables you to move, copy or transfer your information easily between our IT systems and theirs safely and securely, without affecting its usability.

8. The right to lodge a complaint

You have the right to lodge a complaint about the way we handle or process your personal information with your national data protection regulator.

9. The right to withdraw consent

If you have given your consent to anything we do with your personal information, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time (although if you do so, it does not mean that anything we have done with your personal information with your consent up to that point is unlawful). This includes your right to withdraw consent to us using your personal information for marketing purposes.

We usually act on requests and provide information free of charge, but may charge a reasonable fee to cover our administrative costs of providing the information for:

  • baseless or excessive/repeated requests; or
  • further copies of the same information.

Alternatively, we may be entitled to refuse to act on the request.

Please consider your request responsibly before submitting it. We’ll respond as soon as we can. Generally, this will be within one month from when we receive your request but, if the request is going to take longer to deal with, we’ll come back to you and let you know.

10. How do we contact you?

We may contact you by phone, email or social media. If you prefer a particular contact means over another please just let us know.

11. How do you contact us?
