By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy policy.

Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our sites, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.

Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

Your rights

You have the right to ask us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes. We will usually inform you if we intend to use your data for such purposes or if we intend to disclose your information to any third party for such purposes. You can exercise your right to prevent such processing by checking certain boxes on the forms we use to collect your data. Alternatively, you can also exercise the right at any time by contacting us at info@supplierplus.com.

Our sites 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.

Access to information

Regulations give you the right to access information held about you. Your right of access can be exercised in accordance with the Personal Data Protection Act of Estonia. We reserve the right to make a small administrative charge to cover our costs of doing this. Your exercise of this right is subject to certain exemptions to safeguard the public interest (eg the prevention or detection of crime) and our interests (eg the maintenance of legal privilege). If you exercise this right we will check your entitlement and respond in most cases within the required period, which is currently 40 days.

Retention of Data

We will retain your personal data on our electronic systems for as long as long as is necessary to provide you with the services under our agreement with you (or with your business) or to enforce our rights under that agreement. We may continue to hold your personal data for up to 7 years after you or your business has ceased using our services to allow us to protect our rights in any legal or regulatory proceedings. We may retain deeds and other security documents containing personal data, such as personal guarantees or debentures, for up to 12 years after you or your business has ceased using our services.

Any hard copy documents containing your personal data will be destroyed securely using a 3rd party service provider once the document is no longer needed in hard copy. We may retain hard copies of legal documents (court documents, security documents and contracts) on our premises or in secure off-site storage provided by 3rd party service providers. The data retention periods for these documents will be either 7 years or 12 years, as set out above.
