Where we engage third party service providers to perform services for us those third parties may be required to handle your personal information. Under these circumstances those third parties must safeguard this information and must only use it for the purposes for which it was supplied, although we are not responsible for ensuring this.

Other than the above, we will not disclose your personal information without your consent unless disclosure is either necessary to prevent a threat to life or health, authorised or required by law, reasonably necessary to enforce the law or necessary to investigate a suspected unlawful activity or any breach of any of the Website Terms of Use or our Online Sale Terms.

Any permitted handling of personal information under any exemptions under the Acts will take priority over this Privacy Policy to the extent any inconsistency may exist.

By using our website or otherwise providing personal information to us, you agree that we may communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy, and administrative issues relating to your use. For example, if we learn of a security system’s breach, we may attempt to notify you electronically by posting a notice on our website, by sending an email, or otherwise contacting you.

Providing Personal Information About Another Person

You represent to us that where you provide personal information to us about another person, you are authorised to provide that information to us, and that you will inform that person who we are, how we use and disclose their information, and that they can gain access to that information.

Securing Your Personal Information

We intend to protect the personal information entrusted to us and treat it securely in accordance with this Privacy Statement. Ubiqus UK implements physical, administrative, and technical safeguards designed to protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. The Internet, however, cannot be guaranteed to be 100% secure, and we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any personal information you provide to us.

Access to your personal information is limited to those who specifically need it to conduct their responsibilities.

We take reasonable steps to destroy or permanently de-identify your personal information where it is no longer required and to protect your personal information from unauthorised access, disclosure, loss, misuse and alteration.

Access to Personal Data and Accuracy

The Acts give you the right to access information held about you. Your right of access to your data can be exercised in accordance with the Acts.  We reserve the right to levy charges in instances where requests received are deemed to be manifestly unfounded, excessive, or repetitive.

We may take up to 1 month to respond to your access request, in special circumstances where requests are complex or numerous we reserve the right to extend our response time by a further 2 months. Where this applies, we will endeavour to notify you within 1 month of your request detailing our reasons for the extension. You have the right to have any inaccuracies in your information corrected.

We take reasonable steps to ensure that the information we hold about you is accurate, complete and up-to-date. To assist us to do this, please provide us with the correct information and inform us if your details change. You may update your client’s details at any time by accessing your client account or by contacting our Customer Services Team. If we deny you access to your personal information, we will provide you with the reason for such denial.

Linked Sites

Our site may, from time to time, contain links to and from the websites of our partner networks, advertisers and affiliates. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies. Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to these websites.

Transmission of Your Data

While care is taken to protect your personal information received from you via our website, unfortunately no data transmission over the Internet is guaranteed as 100% secure. Accordingly, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you send to us or receive from us online. This is particularly true for information you send to us via email as we have no way of protecting that information until it reaches us. Once we receive your personal information, we are required to protect it in accordance with the Acts.

Where we Store Your Personal Data

The data that we collect from you is stored within the European Economic Area (“EEA”). If we intend to transfer your information outside the EEA (European Economic Area) we will always obtain your consent first.

Direct Marketing

You have the right to ask us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes. We will usually inform you (before collecting your data) if we intend to use your data for such purpose. You can exercise your right to prevent such processing by checking certain boxes on the forms we use to collect your data. You can also exercise the right at any time by contacting our Customer Services Team. All emails, SMS and newsletters from this website allow you to opt-out of further mailings by clicking on the link or responding “unsubscribe”.
