Where we store your personal data

The data that we collect from you may be transferred to and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”).

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 websites, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure.

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 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 websites 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.

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 GDPR and 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 (e.g. the prevention or detection of crime) and our interests (e.g. the maintenance of legal privilege). If you exercise this right, we will check your entitlement and respond without undue delay and in any event within one month of receipt of the request. That period may be extended by two further months where necessary, taking into account the complexity and number of the requests.

Retention of Data

We will retain your personal data on our electronic systems for as long as 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 three years (unless a longer period is prescribed by law) 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 third-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 third-party service providers. The data retention periods for these documents will be either three years or 12 years, as set out above.

Changes to our privacy policy

We reserve the right to modify this privacy policy or any part of it at any time. If we make any material changes in the way we collect, use, or share the personal information that you have voluntarily provided, we will post a notice of the changes in a clear and conspicuous manner on our website.
