Kingpin (“our”, “us” and “we”) has created this Privacy Notice in order to demonstrate our commitment to your privacy. This Privacy Notice forms part of our Website Conditions of Use and explains our data collection and use practices. By using or accessing the Website located at techpapers.co.uk (the “Website”), you signify your assent to our Privacy Notice. If you do not agree to this Privacy Notice you may not access or otherwise use the Website.
For the purpose of the General Data Protection Regulation, the controller is Kingpin Communications Limited, whose principal place of business is 3 Wenlock Street, London N1 7NT.
Personal and Non-Personal Information
When using the Website, you may be asked to provide, or you may choose to provide us with or upload, certain personally identifiable information about yourself (“Personal Information”), including but not limited to, your name, company name, e-mail address, physical address and telephone number.
We may also collect non-personally identifiable information, such as IP host address, pages viewed, browser type and other data, and may aggregate any information collected in a manner which does not identify any individual (“Aggregate Information”).
Purposes of processing
- We may use Personal Information for marketing purposes and for the purposes of communicating with you about Kingpin and its offerings, events and services.
- We may use Aggregate Information to improve and enhance the Website, analyse trends, administer the Website and for our market research activities. For example, we may share Aggregate Information with unaffiliated third parties, such as business partners, in an aggregate, anonymous form, which means that the shared information will not contain nor be linked to any Personal Information.
Lawful basis of processing
The lawful basis of processing is that the processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by Kingpin, including the conduct of direct marketing activities relating to our business activities, and the efficient management of Kingpin’s relationships with its customers, prospective customers, suppliers, shareholders, staff or other stakeholders.
Recipients of the personal data
- Unless disclosed otherwise at the time of collection, we do not share any Personal Information you submit through our Website with any unaffiliated third party, unless it is necessary to respond to your inquiry, or to comply with applicable law.
- We may on occasion pass your Personal Information to third parties who may contact you with additional B2B or industry related content.
- Please note that we reserve the right to access and/or disclose Personal Information and non-personal information we gather as required by courts or administrative agencies and to the extent required to permit us to investigate suspected fraud, harassment or other violations of any law, rule or regulation, the Website rules or policies, or the rights of third parties or to investigate any suspected conduct which we deem improper.
Location of the personal data
The personal information that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area (EEA). It may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA, who work for us or for one of our service providers. Such staff may be engaged in, among other things, the fulfilment of orders, the processing of payment details and the provision of marketing services. Where such transfers are made, they will be subject either to the EU Model Clauses that are applicable to Controller-Controller or Controller-Processor transfers (as applicable) or to another form of contract with the relevant controller or processor that provides for appropriate and suitable safeguards. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Notice.
Duration of processing
We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. The appropriate retention period for any given type of personal data depends on a range of factors, including the nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure, the purposes for which it was collected, and the applicable legal requirements.
Data subject rights
You have the following rights as a data subject, by reason of the General Data Protection Regulation:
- The right to request access to the personal data that we hold about you (also known as a "data subject access request"). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
- The right to request rectification of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected.
- The right to request erasure of the personal data that we hold about you (also known as “the right to be forgotten”). This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal information where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal information where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below).
- The right to request restriction of processing about you. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of personal information about you, for example if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it.
- The right to object to processing. Where we are processing your personal data solely on the grounds that there is a legitimate interest to do so, and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground, then this enables you to challenge the processing. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal information for direct marketing purposes.
- The right to data portability. This enables you to ask us to transfer your personal information to another party in certain circumstances.
- Where our processing of personal data is based on your having given consent, you also have the right as a data subject to withdraw that consent at any time.
- You have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority. In the United Kingdom, the supervisory authority is the Office of the Information Commissioner, full contact details for which can be found at https://ico.org.uk/global/contact-us/
If you wish to invoke any of the above rights, please contact us using the details at the end of this Privacy Notice.
Automated decision-making (including profiling)
We do not undertake any automated decision-making in respect of personal data obtained through the Website from data subjects.
Plans for further processing
We have no plans to process personal data for reasons other than the reason for which the data was originally collected.
The security of your Personal Information is very important to us. We have put in place reasonable physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard the information we collect. However, due to the inherent open nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee that communications between you and us, or information stored on the Website or our servers, will be free from unauthorized access by third parties such as hackers and your use of the Website demonstrates your assumption of this risk.
Our Website may contain links to other Websites not maintained by us. Other Websites may also reference or link to our Website. We recommend that when you leave our Website you read the privacy statements of each Website that you visit. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such other Websites.
Communications with us
We may use email to communicate with you, to send information that you have requested or to send information about other products or services developed or provided by us, provided that, we will not give your email address to another party to promote their products or services directly to you.
