How We Use and Manage Your Personal Information
Please note that Trantec Solids Handling Limited is the Data Controller of your personal information. The principles set out in this Website Privacy Notice apply to all instances in which Trantec receives your personal information as a Data Controller for the purposes described in this notice. Those purposes are processing of information in order to participate in the various activities available on this website or as mentioned below.
What information we collect through this website and what we do with it.
You can provide your personal information if you wish. We only collect personal information that you want to provide to us or that is needed to provide (and improve) our service to you. We collect personal information directly such as name, address, telephone number and e-mail address as well as connection and system information. The legal basis for the processing of your personal information is your consent and/or any other applicable legal basis, such as our legitimate interest in engaging in commerce and offering products and services of value to you. Any consent you provide may be withdrawn at any time by contacting us.
Trantec takes security measures in line with data protection regulations, to prevent data loss, to preserve data integrity, and to regulate access to the data. Only authorized Company personnel, and authorized personnel of our third-party service providers’ processing data on our behalf, have access to your personal information. All such personnel who have access to your personal information are required to adhere to our Privacy Notice and all third-party service providers are requested by Trantec to ensure that any of their personnel who have access to your personal information have signed non-disclosure agreements. In addition, contracts are in place with such third-party service providers acting as data processors for Trantec that have access to your personal information, to ensure that the requisite level of security is in place, and that your personal information is processed only as instructed by us.
How we use your personal information
Your personal information will only be used for the purposes for which you provided it to Trantec, as indicated to you at the time you provided your personal information. It will also be used to administer, support and obtain feedback on the level of our services, to help prevent breaches of security, the law or our contract terms, and for direct marketing purposes. It may also be disclosed, including a disclosure to entities based outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”), to third parties (as part of the information generally contained in business) in the event of a sale of the business, or a reorganization of the business, or as otherwise required or permitted by law or applicable regulator.
Who we disclose your personal information to and why
We will never share your personal information with any third-party business organisation that intends to use it for their own purposes, other than as required by law. With your consent, we may share your personal information with third-parties such as those who assist us in providing the products and services and who perform technical operations, and to our “third-party data processors” (service providers such as any fulfillment and activation partners, and digital agencies, hosting providers, data storage providers and other technical partners) who help us administer this website, or process the data submitted to it, may have access to your information.
Under the data protection legislation, you have the right to:
- Object to the processing of personal/company information;
- prevent processing for direct marketing;
- Object to decisions being taken by automated means;
- Have inaccurate personal/company information corrected,
- To require us to erase your personal information;
- To require us to restrict or object to our data processing activities;
- To receive from us the personal information we hold about you which you have provided to us, in a reasonable format specified by you, including for the purpose of you transmitting that personal information to another data controller.
Please note that these rights may be limited by data protection legislation, and we may reasonably be entitled to refuse your request under certain allowable circumstances.
