Personal data: 

Any information about a living individual which allows them to be identified from that information, or from that information along with other available information, is considered personal data.

I act as a “data controller”, which means I’m responsible for collecting and storing any personal data you provide me. Anyone whose data I collect, process or store is known as a “data subject”.

Don’t worry: I’m committed to processing your personal data responsibly, lawfully and securely, following the guidelines of EU Regulation 2016/679: the General Data Protection Regulation or GDPR.

I secure your data by: 

        • Ensuring I have appropriate policies and processes in place to safely process personal data.
        • Minimising the personal data I collect, process or store.
        • Ensuring any third-party organisations who collect or store personal data on my behalf are GDPR-compliant and committed to data protection.
        • Being responsive to any requests from data subjects who want to exercise their rights to access, rectify, limit, or erase the data I hold on them (or any other relevant requests).

Categories of personal data: 

The kinds of personal data I process may include full names and contact details, like email addresses and phone numbers, as well as social media handles and, in some cases, bank details to make payments to contractors or credit card details to process payments from customers. The site may also collect limited browsing details or information on your browsing device (eg. IP address; operating system; browser).

Categories of data subjects:

I process personal data from clients, potential clients, contractors, employees, market research interviewees and other individuals who either visit the website or engage with Unidens. I always collect and process this data lawfully, usually on the basis of consent, legitimate interests or contract, depending on the kind of data collected. I ensure that any data I collect on the basis of legitimate interests is necessary and does not overly affect the interests, rights and privacy of any data subject.

How and why I collect and process personal data:

Your personal data is collected and processed in the following ways:

Contact form 

When you ask me to get in touch with you via my contact form, I collect and process your name, company name and email address on the basis of consent in order to give you more information on our services, to understand your business and to answer your questions.

If you additionally choose, via consent, to receive occasional posts, updates or offers, I will also send you extra information I think you’ll be interested in. If you asked me to send you these occasional emails, but no longer want to receive them, you can contact me anytime at unidensproject @ [@] gmail [.] com and I will take you off my list.

Market research and interviews

If you have consented to being contacted for market research, in order to interview you or ask you to provide opinions or survey responses, I may collect and process your name and possibly other details including contact details, recordings or video content, and information on your market demographic including age and gender details. I collect this data on the basis of consent, and use it only for the purpose intended and explained to you: to get feedback from you, our client companies’ potential buyer personas, in order to develop more appealing content and tell our clients what their potential buyers want.

Contracting workers 

If I engage you to work with Unidens, either as a freelance contractor or as an employee, I collect your personal data including your name, contact details, bank or other payment details and any other necessary personnel files or information. I process this information on a contract basis in order to facilitate your work engagement with the organisation and to pay you for your work. I may also hold information of this kind under legal obligation, eg. I may be obliged to store invoices or personnel files for a statutory period mandated by relevant tax or employment laws.

Log files

Like most websites, my webservers temporarily log traffic data from your device, including IP address, time, date and duration of your visit, browser or operating system details, and details of any website that referred you here. These are collected on a legitimate interests basis and I do not collect or process your name or contact details until you voluntarily sign up for my subscription list or voluntarily share your information with me in another way (eg. by sending me an email or leaving a comment).

Cookies 

Like most websites, my website uses cookies. Cookies are small data files which are placed on your device while you browse the internet which remember your device. Data collected via cookies may include pages viewed and browsing details, but it will never include your name or contact details.

My website uses cookies to deliver a smooth user experience, help me to understand who is visiting my site, allow my users to see advertising relevant to them, and to participate in affiliate marketing. Some cookies come directly from my website and others come from trusted, GDPR-compliant third parties, including Google Analytics, who place limited cookies on my site.

There are different types of cookies: necessary cookies (required for you to experience the full functionality of the site); preferences cookies (those that optimise or customise your browsing experience); statistics cookies (those that track limited user data in order to understand the site’s visitors and improve the site); and marketing cookies (those that track limited user data to help ensure you see content and ads that are relevant to you).

I am committed to safe and lawful use of cookies, and I ask site visitors to opt in to each of these different types of cookies when they first visit my site.

You can also configure your browser to stop accepting cookies from my website, or even from all websites you visit, anytime. You can usually do this through the Options or Preferences menu of your web browser. You can specifically opt out of Google Analytics cookies by downloading the Google Analytics Opt-Out Browser Add-on here.

Below, I explain more about cookies and other data collected via third parties, and you can see my full Cookie Policy here for more information.

Third parties

I ensure that any third-party services I use to collect, process or store personal data are secure and GDPR-compliant. Each third-party service provider’s use of your personal information is dictated by their respective privacy policies.

I use third-party service providers to provide services like contact forms, subscribing to occasional news from the site, integrating social media platforms and maintaining optimum website functionality.

I currently use:

        • A website feature called Typeforms to create contact forms. Their Privacy Policy is here.
        • A service called ActiveCampaign for storing contact details and sending occasional news or other opt-in content. Their Privacy Policy is here. I may also use GSuite to store contact details and get in touch. Their Privacy Policy is here.
        • A service called AddThis which allows users to follow my Instagram or other social media accounts or to share my website content on social media. Their Privacy Policy is here.

I also occasionally use third-party service providers to track data in order to analyse website usage and target ads to website users.

I currently use:

        • Google Analytics

Google Analytics is Google LLC’s web analysis service and collects standard internet log data and details of visitor behavior patterns via cookies for the purposes of understanding demographics and delivering ads tailored to users. You can specifically opt out of Google Analytics cookies by downloading the Google Analytics Opt-Out Browser Add-on here.

The rights you have depend on the lawful basis on which I process your data.

          Right to access

          You have the right to ask for a copy of the information I hold about you (including why I hold the information, who has access to it, and where I obtained it), which is called a “subject access request”.

          You can make a subject access request, exercise any other rights regarding your personal data, or ask me any questions about your personal data by contacting me at unidensproject @ [@] gmail [.] com

          I will process any such request within 30 days, unless I consider the request manifestly unfounded or excessive, in which case I will write to you explaining the situation and the next course of action.

          Right to erasure 

          Unless I hold your data due to legal obligation or on a public interests basis, you have the right to ask me to delete or stop processing your data.

          Right to rectification

          You have the right to ask me to change incorrect or incomplete information I hold about you.

          Right to restriction of processing 

          You have the right to ask me to restrict the way I process your personal data.

          Right to object 

          You have the right to object to my use of your personal data which effectively asks me to stop processing your information. You can’t object to data held or processed on the basis of contract, legal obligation or vital interests. While you can’t formally object to data held or processed on the basis of consent, you can withdraw consent at any time.

          Right to portability

          You have the right to ask me to receive a copy of all personal data you have provided me, and to ask me to send it to you in a structured, easily accessible, machine-readable format; and to ask for this data to be sent directly to another data controller.

          I will comply with any of these requests within 30 days, unless there is a reason why I cannot comply (eg. if you ask me to delete data I hold on the basis of a legal obligation, I cannot legally delete it). If I cannot comply, I will still respond within 30 days to inform you of why.

          Data breach 

          I take great care with your personal data and do not anticipate any data breaches. A personal data breach means that the security of personal data is compromised. This includes accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure of, or access to personal data.

          In the unlikely event that a data breach occurs, I will follow GDPR-compliant protocol by implementing a recovery plan, notifying the appropriate authorities, and informing any relevant people or organisations.

          This Privacy Policy was last updated on 25th March 2020 and will be reviewed on a six-monthly basis to ensure it is current.

          Contact form 

          When you ask me to get in touch with you via my contact form, I collect your name, company name and email address on the basis of consent in order to give you more information on our services, to understand your business and to answer your questions.
