Nor do we collect any information about criminal convictions and offences.

5. Using your personal information

We only ever use your personal information if and to the extent that applicable law allows.

Therefore, we will only process your personal information if:

  • it is necessary for the performance of a contract with you or the organisation you work for;

  • it is necessary in connection with a legal obligation;

  • you have given your consent (where necessary) to such use or the organisation you work for has obtained your consent (where necessary) to share your personal information with us; or

  • if we (or a third party) have a legitimate interest which is not overridden by your interests or your rights and freedoms. Such legitimate interests include the provision of our services, running our business and marketing relevant services directly to you.

Please note, therefore, that we may use your personal information in order to:

  • comply with our legal obligations;

  • deliver services to you and/or the organisation for whom you work;

  • run our business;

  • improve the services and products that we offer to you or the organisation for whom you work;

6. Keeping your personal information

We will only ever keep personal information about you for as long as is necessary to address the purpose for which it was collected. This includes complying with any legal, regulatory, accounting or reporting requirements. In relation to the provision of services to you this will be in accordance with our retention and destruction policy unless we agree otherwise with you, in writing. To find out more about our retention and destruction policy please contact us.

[Reference is made here to a retention and destruction policy. Mångata should have a retention and destruction policy in place in respect of any personal data records that it keeps.]

7. Sharing personal information

There are times when we may need to share your personal information with third parties. Those third parties may include:

  • to other members of the Mångata group of companies, who will also act as joint controllers of the personal information;

  • regulators, government agencies, courts and other similar regulatory and official third parties, including where we are under a legal duty to do so;

  • our professional advisers and auditors and those who provide services on our behalf and may need access to your information – for example an IT supplier may have access to your personal information when providing IT support or hosted cloud services or a mailing company may process the personal information of our contacts for us; and

  • third parties to whom we may sell, transfer or merge parts of our business or our assets. Alternatively, we may seek to acquire other businesses or merge with them. If a change happens to our business, then the new owners may use your personal information in the same way as set out in this privacy policy.

Please note that we will never send marketing communications via SMS or call you without your specific consent and we will not pass on or sell your personal information to a third party.

[We have listed the typical types of third parties to whom we might expect Mångata to transfer personal information, please review the list and let us know of any additions or deletions. If there are specific third parties to whom you will transfer personal information these should be added.]

8. Transferring your personal information internationally

Mångata Networks LLC is located in the United States of America. If you live in a country with strict data privacy laws such as Canada, any constituent part of the European Union, Israel, Japan, New Zealand, Switzerland or the United Kingdom you should be aware that any personal information that you provide to us will be transferred to countries with less strict data privacy laws.

Any personal information that you provide to Mångata Networks Limited will be shared with Mångata Networks LLC and may be transferred to a country with less strict data privacy laws. Any personal information shared by Mångata Networks Limited with Mångata Networks LLC will be shared in a manner that complies with applicable law, such as a model contract.

[We assume that the English company is essentially dormant at the moment. If and when it starts collecting personal data and sharing that personal data with the US company, you will need to put in place a legal method of transferring that personal data outside of the UK, such as a model contract.]


9. Keeping your personal information secure

We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal information from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal information to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal information on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected breach of personal information and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.

Please always be aware, however, that information sent over the internet is rarely completely secure and whilst we will always take the most appropriate steps to protect your persaonl information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information transmitted electronically and accept no responsibility for any damage or loss caused.

10. Your rights

You may have the following rights in relation to the personal information that we hold about you:

  • the right to request rectification of personal information that is inaccurate or incomplete;

  • the right to erasure of your personal information (sometimes referred to as the “right to be forgotten”);

  • the right to object to, or restrict, the way in which we are dealing with and using your personal information; and

  • the right to request that your personal information be provided to you in a format that is secure and suitable for re-use (known as the “right to portability”).

Please note, however, that there may be limitations placed upon this by circumstances, such as when we need to retain personal information for legal purposes or to perform our services for you.

You have the right to make what is known as a Subject Access Request to find out details of the personal information that we hold about you, and the uses to which it is put. Such requests can be made in any form, but it is easier and safer if they are made to us in writing.

Subject to the performance of our contractual services to you, you have the right to withdraw consent that you may have provided to the collection, processing and transfer of your personal information for a specific purpose at any time. Once we have received notification that you have withdrawn your consent, we will no longer process that personal information for the purpose or purposes you originally agreed to, unless we have another legitimate basis for doing so.

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.

We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it could take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.

You will not, in general, have to pay a fee to exercise any of your individual rights set out in this privacy policy unless the use you make of this provision becomes excessive and we are entitled in law to make such a charge.
