If Suppliers and Customers fail to provide personal information

If Suppliers and Customers fail to provide certain information when requested, we may not be able to perform the respective contracts we have entered into with Suppliers and Customers, or we may be prevented from complying with our respective legal obligations to Suppliers and Customers.


Change of purpose

We will only use Your personal information for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If we need to use Your personal information for an unrelated purpose, we will notify the Supplier and Customer, as is appropriate in the circumstances, and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.

Please note that we may process a Supplier’s or a Customer’s personal information without their respective knowledge or consent, as relevant to the circumstances, in compliance with the above rules, where this is required or permitted by law.


DATA SHARING

We may have to share Supplier and Customer data with third parties, including third-party service providers.

We require third parties to respect the security of Your data and to treat it in accordance with the law.

Why might the Company share Supplier and Customer personal information with third parties?

We will share Your personal information with third parties where required by law, where it is necessary to administer the working relationship with You or where we have another legitimate interest in doing so.

Cadassist Ltd is not responsible for the privacy practices of third parties. Be sure to review the privacy policies, supplemental notices, and settings of all websites or platforms that you visit so you can understand these practices and your options.

Unless Cadassist Ltd has your permission to do so, we do not rent, sell, share, or trade your personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes.

Which third-party service providers process my personal information?

We may share your personal information, including personal information we have combined with other information, with authorised third parties (such as our business partners, service providers, vendors, licensees, authorised third-party agents or contractors) who help with our business operations, including the storage and processing of personal information.

Examples include fulfilling orders, sending communications, removing repetitive personal information from customer lists, ensuring accuracy of personal information, analysing data and providing related services, providing marketing assistance, and processing credit card payments. We require that Authorised Third Parties to agree to implement reasonable safeguards to protect the personal information, and to use the personal information only for the purposes for which it was provided.

How secure is my information with third-party service providers?

All our third-party service providers are required to take appropriate security measures to protect Your personal information in line with our policies. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use Your personal data for their own purposes. We only permit them to process Your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.

What about other third parties?

We may share Your personal information with other third parties, for example in the context of the possible sale or restructuring of the business. In this situation we will, so far as possible, share anonymised data with the other parties before the transaction completes. Once the transaction is completed, we will share Your personal data with the other parties if and to the extent required under the terms of the transaction.


DATA RETENTION

How long will you use my information for?

We will only retain Your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of Your personal data, the purposes for which we process Your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

In some circumstances we may anonymise Your personal information so that it can no longer be associated with You, in which case we may use such information without further notice to You. Once you are no longer an Employee, or a Customer benefiting from the Company’s services or a Supplier, as is appropriate, we will retain and securely destroy your personal information in accordance with our data retention policy.

RIGHTS OF ACCESS, CORRECTION, ERASURE, AND RESTRICTION

Your duty to inform us of changes

It is important that the personal information we hold about You is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if Your personal information changes during your working relationship with us.

Your rights in connection with personal information

Under certain circumstances, by law You have the right to:

  • Request access to Your personal information (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables You to receive a copy of the personal information we hold about You and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
  • Request correction of the personal information that we hold about You. This enables You to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about You corrected.
  • Request erasure of your personal information. This enables Employees, Suppliers, or Customers to ask us to delete or remove personal information where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove Your personal information where You have exercised Your right to object to processing (see below).
  • Object to processing of Your personal information where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about Your particular situation which makes You want to object to processing on this ground. You also have the right to object where we are processing Your personal information for direct marketing purposes.
  • Request the restriction of processing of Your personal information. This enables Employees, Suppliers, or Customers, as is appropriate, to ask us to suspend the processing of personal information about You for example if You want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it.
  • Request the transfer of Your personal information to another party.

If You want to review, verify, correct or request erasure of Your personal information, object to the processing of Your personal data, or request that we transfer a copy of Your personal information to another party, please contact us.

No fee usually required

You will not have to pay a fee to access Your personal information (or to exercise any of the other rights).

What we may need from You

We may need to request specific information from You to help us confirm your identity and ensure Your right to access the information (or to exercise any of Your other rights). This is another appropriate security measure to ensure that personal information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.

RIGHT TO WITHDRAW CONSENT

In the limited circumstances where You may have provided Your consent to the collection, processing and transfer of Your personal information for a specific purpose, you have the right to withdraw Your consent for that specific processing at any time. To withdraw Your consent, please contact us.

Once we have received notification that You have withdrawn Your consent, we will no longer process Your information for the purpose or purposes You originally agreed to, unless we have another legitimate basis for doing so in law.

CHANGES TO THIS PRIVACY NOTICE

We reserve the right to update this privacy notice at any time, and we will provide You with a new privacy notice when we make any substantial updates. We may also notify You in other ways from time to time about the processing of your personal information.

If you have any questions about this privacy notice, please contact us.
