Children’s data

We do not actively collect information from children (under-18s), and would not knowingly hold or process data of a minor. The data we collect is for use in predominately business 2 business marketing and is that of decision makers or their employees, as such we have no imperative or requirement to hold the data of children.

How do we keep your data safe and who has access to it?

We place great importance on the security of your personal information and will always try to take appropriate precautions to protect it.

We ensure that there are appropriate technical controls in place to protect your personal details. For example, we use encryption technology on our websites and carry out regular security reviews on our network.

We always ensure only authorised personnel have access to your information i.e. Piranha’s staff, the data steward, directors, website developers and digital marketing personal and they are appropriately trained to manage your data.

Despite all our precautions however, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. So, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose to us online, and you must understand that you do so at your own risk.

Who we share your personal data with

We do use external organisations/third party software to process personal data and distribute marketing materials. Before adopting these company’s software, we perform rigorous checks to ensure they meet all relevant regulations and legislation and ensure that only we can access your data within these systems. Our suppliers do not access your data, it is controlled by Piranha through secure logins, we seek to provide maximum protection to your personal details.

Financial or technical considerations may occasionally lead us to use the services of a supplier based outside the European Economic Area (EEA), which in turn might lead to your personal information being transferred, processed and stored outside the EEA. If these suppliers are based in countries that European Union authorities do not consider provide adequate levels of protection for personal data, we take steps to provide suitable safeguards to protect your personal information, such as entering the European Commission approved standard contractual clauses.

We may legally be required to disclose your details if required to by the police or for regulatory reasons. We will only ever share your data in other circumstances if we have your consent to do so.

How we keep your information up-to-date

Where possible, we try to keep your records up to date; for example, we aim to contact you at least once every two years by telephone to ensure your information on our database is correct. However, we really appreciate it if you let us know if your contact details change.

How long we keep your information for

We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as is necessary for the relevant activity, for example we will keep a record of any customer for a minimum of six years after final invoice to comply with HM Customer & Revenue legal requirements.

If you ask us to stop sending you marketing materials, that we have been sending you on the basis of consent, that you have given us, we will keep a record of your contact details and appropriate information to enable us to comply with your request not to be contacted by us.

We would still send marketing materials to the business (company name, company address, company switchboard number, company generic email e.g. sales@ or info@) and to anyone within the business who has given their consent.

Our legal basis for processing your information

Although in many cases we will seek consent to process your personal data, in some instances we may process your information without consent when we are legally allowed to do so. This will only be where it is in our legitimate interests to do so and where we are confident that such processing is not likely to prejudice your legitimate interests or rights and freedoms.

Where we are processing your personal data on the basis of consent that you have given us, you are entitled to withdraw that consent at any time such that we can no longer rely on it as a basis for continuing to process your personal information.

Your rights

You retain control of how we use your data and you have the right to ask us to rectify any inaccuracies or to stop processing your personal information, which we will do. In some circumstances we may legally be required to retain your personal information. However, this will be discussed with you depending on your requirements and does not apply if we are processing your data to contact you regarding, or sending you, marketing materials. Please call us on 01772 888331 if you have any concerns.

You have the ‘right to be forgotten’ if we are processing your data on the basis of consent, unless there are other legal grounds and obligations that require us to keep your personal data. In this case any personal data we hold would be erased and we would be unable to fulfil any requests about the information we had held retrospectively.

You also have the right to request a copy of the information we hold about you. If you want to access your information, please contact: The Data Steward, Piranha Internet Ltd, The Chambers, 53 Guildhall Street, Preston, PR1 3NU, Lancashire.

Complaints Policy

If you would like to raise a concern or make a complaint about how we process your personal data, or about any of the services provided by Piranha, we encourage you to speak to or write to our Data Steward and the matter will be fully investigated by one of our Directors and we will report back to you within 20 working days of the original complaint.
