Protecting Data Subject privacy and maintaining the integrity of Personal Data means that: The Controller will keep Personal Data and the business between the Data Subject and the Controller in confidence; The Controller will not sell, rent or loan a Data Subject’s information to third parties; The Controller will respect a Data Subject’s privacy when the Controller may contact a Data Subject concerning various products and services which the Controller make available to a Data Subject from time to time; The Controller may have control over who obtains, uses and the circumstances to give out information about a Data Subject; A Data Subject will have access to the information that the Controller has about the Data Subject.
This Policy Privacy applies to the Controller’s products, services and websites, except where otherwise noted and does not concern any websites that a Data Subject may visit by external links.
The Controller who determines the purposes and means of Personal Data collecting and processing is Wellington Computer Systems Limited with registered office 20 Adelaide Street, Belfast, BT2 8GD.
The processing operations of Personal Data, whether or not by automated means, are performed on behalf of the Controller by Wellington Computer Systems Limited.
The Controller will collect, use and may disclose personal information only for purposes that a reasonable person would consider appropriate in the circumstances; and endeavours to collect as little information as possible as may be necessary under the circumstances.
The Controller reserves the right to use Data Subject aggregated information in any manner it determines, in its discretion, to be appropriate. Use of such aggregated information may include, but not be limited to, the preparation of aggregated user statistics and information summaries to improve efficiencies, more effectively describe Controller’s product and service offerings and assist in the marketing of the Controller’s products and services.
The Controller collects various types of Personal Data. During the course of using Controller’s website, doing business with or interacting with the Controller, receiving products and services from or through the Controller, the Data Subject may, depending on the nature of the circumstances, be asked to provide the Controller with:
Certain forms of information, such as government-issued or private sector-issued licenses, permits, certificates, cards, social insurance/security number, passports, insurance cards, voucher numbers, and the like, although convenient for identification, is voluntary.
It is a Data Subject’s decision whether they want to provide this, or other suitable identification, subject to any legal requirements.
In addition, the Controller may review and analyse a Data Subject’s use of products and services, to help them serve the Data Subject better, and to bring other products and services to the Data Subject’s attention, which the Controller feels, will be of benefit to the Data Subject. The Controller may also collect and analyse information from other sources for the same purposes.
The Controller may share Personal Data with its affiliates, subsidiaries, employees, contractors and agents in the course of providing a Data Subject with Controller’s business services, support, or the fulfilment or delivery of products or services of the Controller.
The Controller does not sell any Personal Data it collects to third parties.
The Controller may disclose Personal Data if is required to do so a court of competent jurisdiction, other legal or regulatory authority, or, if there is a good faith belief and reliance on said belief that disclosure is necessary to: comply with any legal process served on the Controller; maintain, uphold or protect the Controller' rights or property; protect and ensure the personal safety of the public or other Controller’s clients; or protect against criminal or quasi-criminal activities, or to detect, prevent, investigate allegations of, or address, misrepresentation or fraud.
The Controller keeps information only for so long as it is needed for the efficient and effective delivery or fulfilment of the software, products, or services using or contemplating using by the Data Subject and for a reasonable time thereafter, or to meet any legal requirement. The Controller will either destroy or remove information when it is no longer needed.
The Controller keeps the Personal Data collected from a Data Subject strictly confidential. Only authorized personnel have access to this Personal Data. Personnel of the Controller and Processor who are permitted access to Personal Data receive training regarding privacy protection at periodic intervals.
The Controller’s security specialists build security by design into the computer systems. The aim is to protect information at all times, when it is stored in data files or handled by the Controller’s employees. The Controller’s systems are also designed to protect information when it is transmitted, for example, between our data processing facilities and corporate offices. Personal information may be stored or processed in any jurisdiction in which we or our affiliates, suppliers, subsidiaries or agents maintain facilities. By supplying the Controller with Personal Data, you consent to any transfer of this information to other jurisdictions (including countries which have not been assessed for adequacy of privacy laws).
The Controller does, and shall continue to use, industry-standard technology to maintain the security of Personal Data, and for the Controller’s connections to the internet; however, the Controller cannot and does not guarantee the privacy, security, authenticity or non-corruption of any information transmitted through the internet or any for information stored in any third-party system connected to the internet.
The Controller shall not be responsible for any claims, damages, costs or losses whatsoever arising out of or in any way related to third-party connections to or use of the Internet.
The Controller shall not be responsible for events beyond our direct control, and therefore will not be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, consequential or punitive damages relating to the use or release of Personal Data.
Data Subjects are entitled at any time to obtain confirmation of the existence of Personal Data and to be informed of their contents and origin, to verify their accuracy, or else request that such data be supplemented, updated or rectified.
Data Subjects have the right to request the erasure, anonymization or blocking of any data that is processed in breach of the law as well as to object in all cases, on legitimate grounds, to processing of their personal data.
The Controller is committed to protecting the safety of children. The Controller will not knowingly request or use Personal Data from children under the age of eighteen without parental consent. If the Controller receives actual knowledge, does not knowingly or intentionally collect any Personal Data from children under the age of eighteen, the Controller will take steps to have such Personal Data eliminated.
Where the processing of Personal Data is performed in the context of the activities of the Controller and/or Processor established in European Union, this processing may be subject to EU Regulation 2016/679 and other applicable privacy laws on the protection of the natural person, with regard to the processing of personal data and the free movement of such data, and to the relevant EU member country national law before the competent local court.
The Controller’s website is hosted and administered in Dublin, Ireland.
The Controller will disclose Personal Data without the Data Subjects permission when required by law, or in good faith belief that such action is necessary to investigate or protect against harmful activities to the Controller’s company, associates, or property (including this website), or to others.
A cookie is a small text file that stores Internet settings. Almost every website uses cookie technology. The cookie is downloaded by your Internet browser the first time you visit a website. The next time you visit this website from the same device, the cookie and the information contained in it are either sent back to the originating website (first-party cookies) or to another website to which it belongs (third-party cookies). In that way, the website can detect that it has already been opened using this browser, and in some cases it will then vary the content it displays.
Some cookies are extremely useful because they can improve your user experience when you return to a previously visited website. This assumes that you are using the same device and the same browser as before; if so, cookies will remember your preferences, will know how you use the website, and will adapt the content you are shown so that it is more relevant to your personal interests and needs.
Cookies on this website that do not require approval.
Cookies that are essential, also known as ‘strictly necessary’ cookies. They enable features without which you would not be able to use the website as intended. These cookies are used exclusively by the Controller and are therefore known as first-party cookies. They are only saved on your computer while you are actually browsing the website. An example of why strictly necessary cookies are used is to set the language of your preference when browsing this website.
Based on what function cookies have and the purpose for which cookies are used, there are four categories of cookie: strictly necessary cookies, performance cookies, functional cookies and marketing cookies.
Strictly necessary cookies
Are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features. Without these cookies, some services cannot be provided – for example, remembering previous actions (e.g. the language in which you want to browse this site) when navigating back to a page in the same session.
Gather information about how a website is used – for example, which pages a visitor opens most often, and whether the user receives error messages from some pages. These cookies do not save information that would allow the user to be identified. The collected information is aggregated, and therefore anonymous. These cookies are used exclusively to improve the performance of the website, and with it the user experience.
Enable a website to save information which has already been entered (such as usernames, languages choices, and location data), so that it can offer improved and more personalized functions. For example, a website can offer local information if it uses a cookie to remember the region a Data Subject is currently located.
Are used to deliver adverts and other communications more relevant to a Data Subject and their interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement and to help measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. They remember whether a Data Subject has visited a website or not, and this information can be shared with other parties such as advertisers. Cookies for improving group targeting and advertising will often be linked to site functionality provided by other organizations.
You can completely disable cookies in your browser at any time.
It is important to note that if you change your settings and block certain cookies, you will not be able to take full advantage of some features of our site, and we might not be able to provide some features you have previously chosen to use.
