Only Zulu Creative Limited and our working partners will have access to your data. It will be used purely for making contact with you at a later date, unless you have requested us not to do so.
What Does This Policy Cover?
What is Personal Data?
Personal data is defined by the General Data Protection Regulation (EU Regulation 2016/679) (the “GDPR”) as ‘any information relating to an identifiable person who can be directly or indirectly identified in particular by reference to an identifier’.
Personal data is, in simpler terms, any information about you that enables you to be identified. Personal data covers obvious information such as your name and contact details, but it also covers less obvious information such as identification numbers, electronic location data, and other online identifiers.
What Are My Rights?
Under the GDPR, you have the following rights, which Zulu Creative Ltd will always work to uphold:
- The right to access the personal data we hold about you.
- The right to have your personal data rectified if any of your personal data held by us is inaccurate or incomplete.
- The right to be forgotten, i.e. the right to ask us to delete or otherwise dispose of any of your personal data that we have. Please note we will keep a legacy copy of your details so we can ensure you are not contacted again.
- The right to restrict (i.e. prevent) the processing of your personal data.
- The right to object to Zulu Creative Limited using your personal data for a particular purpose or purposes.
- The right to data portability. This means that, if you have provided personal data to Zulu Creative Limited directly, we are using it with your consent or for the performance of a contract, and that data is processed using automated means, you can ask us for a copy of that personal data to re-use with another service or business in many cases.
- Rights relating to automated decision-making and profiling. We do not use your personal data in this way.
Further information about your rights can also be obtained from the Information Commissioner’s Office or your local Citizens Advice Bureau.
If you have any cause for complaint about our use of your personal data, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioner’s Office.
What information do we hold?
The information we will collect will be:
- Job Title
- Email Address
- Business Telephone number
- Business Addresses
and other details knowingly provided to us by you.
How Do You Use My Personal Data?
Under the GDPR, Zulu Creative Limited must always have a lawful basis for using personal data. This may be because the data is necessary for our performance of a contract with you, because you have consented to our use of your personal data, or because it is in Zulu Creative Limited legitimate business interests to use it. Your personal data may be used for one of the following purposes:
- Providing and managing your Business account;
- Providing industry news and updates
- Supplying services to you. Your personal details are required in order for us to enter into a contract with you.
- Communicating with you. This may include responding to emails or calls from you.
- Supplying you with information by email and post that you have agreed to receive (you may unsubscribe or opt-out at any time by calling us/emailing/clicking on unsubscribe link on communications we send).
- Analysing your use of www.zulucreative.co.uk and gathering feedback to enable us to continually improve www.zulucreative.co.uk and your user experience.
- Zulu Creative Limited may also use your personal data for marketing purposes, which may include contacting you by email AND/OR telephone AND/OR text message AND/OR post with information, news, and offers on our OR products AND/OR services. You will not be sent any unlawful marketing or spam. We will always work to fully protect your rights and comply with our obligations under the GDPR and the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003, and you will always have the opportunity to opt-out.
We do not use automated decision-making method(s).
How Long Will You Keep My Personal Data?
Zulu Creative Limited will not keep your personal data for any longer than is necessary, only for the reason for which it was first collected. Your personal data will, therefore, be kept for the following periods (or, where there is no fixed period, the following factors will be used to determine how long it is kept):
- We will update or delete your data in the event of the business being liquidated or closed;
- Named subscriber retires and no longer wishes to receive updates, leaves the business through ill health or death.
How and Where Do You Store or Transfer My Personal Data?
- Zulu Creative Limited uses a CRM system that ensures your data is protected and can only be accessed by a secure login
- Zulu Creative Limited will only store or transfer your personal data within the European Economic Area (the “EEA”). The EEA consists of all EU member states, plus Norway, Iceland, and Liechtenstein. This means that your personal data will be fully protected under the GDPR or to equivalent standards by law.
- Where we transfer your data to a third party based in the US, this may be protected if they are part of the EU-US Privacy Shield. This requires that third party to provide data protection to standards similar to those in Europe. More information is available from the European Commission.
The security of your personal data is essential to Zulu Creative Limited, and to protect your data, Zulu Creative Limited take a number of important measures, including the following:
- Only allow employees to access data via a password gateway
- Strict controls on who within the company can access data records
- Undergo annual training in order to ensure understanding of data procedures
Do You Share My Personal Data?
- Zulu Creative Limited will NOT share any of your personal data.
- In some limited circumstances, we may be legally required to share certain personal data, which might include yours, if we involved in legal proceedings or complying with legal obligations, a court order, or the instructions of a government authority.
- If any personal data is transferred outside of the EEA, we will take suitable steps in order to ensure that your personal data is treated just as safely and securely as it would be within the UK and under the GDPR.
How Can I Access My Personal Data?
- If you want to know what personal data we have about you, you can ask us for details of that personal data and for a copy of it (where any such personal data is held). This is known as a “subject access request”.
- All subject access requests should be made in writing and sent to the email or postal addresses.
- There is not normally any charge for a subject access request. If your request is ‘manifestly unfounded or excessive’ (for example, if you make repetitive requests) a fee may be charged to cover our administrative costs in responding.
- We will respond to your subject access request within 14 days and, in any case, not more than one month of receiving it. Normally, we aim to provide a complete response, including a copy of your personal data within that time. In some cases, however, particularly if your request is more complex, more time may be required up to a maximum of three months from the date we receive your request. You will be kept fully informed of our progress.
