2. What Does This Notice Cover?

This Privacy Notice explains how we use your personal data: how it is collected, how it is held, and how it is processed. It also explains your rights under the law relating to your personal data.

3. What is Personal Data?

Personal data is defined by the Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA 2018) and UK GDPR as ‘any information relating to an identifiable person who can be directly or indirectly identified by reference to an identifier’.

Personal data is, in simpler terms, any information about you that enables you to be identified. Personal data covers obvious information such as your name and contact details, but it also covers less obvious information such as identification numbers, electronic location data, and other online identifiers.

The personal data that we use is set out in Part 5 below.

4. What Are Your Rights?

Under UK GDPR, you have the following rights, which we will always work to uphold:

a. The right to be informed about our collection and use of your personal data. This Privacy Notice should tell you everything you need to know, but you can always contact us to find out more or to ask any questions using the details in Part 11.
b. The right to access the personal data we hold about you. Part 10 will tell you how to do this.
c. The right to have your personal data rectified if any of your personal data held by us is inaccurate or incomplete. Please contact us using the details in Part 11 to find out more.
d. The right to be forgotten, i.e. the right to ask us to delete or otherwise dispose of any of your personal data that we have. Please contact us using the details in Part 11 to find out more.
e. The right to restrict (i.e. prevent) the processing of your personal data.
f. The right to object to us using your personal data for a specific purpose or purposes.
g. The right to data portability. This means that if you have provided personal data to us directly, we are using it with your consent or for the performance of a contract, and that data is processed using automated means, you can ask us for a copy of that personal data to re-use with another service or business in many cases.
h. You have the right to lodge a complaint about the way we handle or process your personal data with your national data protection regulator using the details in Part 12.
i. If you have given your consent to anything we do with your personal data, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time (although if you do so, it does not mean that anything we have done with your personal data with your consent up to that point is unlawful). This includes your right to withdraw consent to us using your personal data for marketing purposes.

For more information about our use of your personal data or exercising your rights as outlined above, please contact us using the details provided in Part 11.

Further information about your rights can also be obtained from the Information Commissioner’s Office or your local Citizens Advice Bureau.

If you have any cause for complaint about our use of your personal data, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioner’s Office.

5. What Personal Data Do We Collect?

We collect the following information from you:

Information you give us. Information that you provide by filling in forms on our site www.hacacoustics.global (our site). This includes information you provide when you register to use our site, request marketing information, use our online chat feature, enter a competition, promotion or survey and when you report a problem with our site. The information you give us may include your name, address, company name, email address and phone number.
Details of Your Visit to our Website. We collect non-personally identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available. This includes, but is not limited to, traffic data, location data, weblogs and records of how you navigate the pages on our site and how you interact with the pages.
IP addresses. We may collect information about your computer, including where available your IP address, operating system and browser type, for system administration and to report aggregate information to our advertisers. This is statistical data about our users’ browsing actions and patterns, and does not identify any individual.
We process information you give us and that we collect about you for the following purposes:
To ensure that content from our site is presented in the most effective manner for you and for your computer.
To provide you with information, products or services that you request from us or which we feel may interest you, where you have consented to be contacted for such purposes.
To carry out our obligations arising from any contracts entered into between you and us.
To allow you to participate in interactive features of our service, when you choose to do so.
To notify you about changes to our service.

6. How Do We Use Your Personal Data?

We must always have a lawful basis for using personal data. This may be because the data is necessary for our performance of a contract with you, because you have consented to our use of your personal data, or because it is in our legitimate business interests to use it. Your personal data may be used for one or more of the following purposes:

• Providing and managing your account.
• Supplying products and/or services to you. Your personal details are required for us to enter into a contract with you.
• Communicating with you. This may include responding to emails or calls from you.
• Supplying you with information by email and/or post that you have opted-in to receive. You may unsubscribe or opt-out at any time.

With your permission or where permitted by law, we may also use your personal data for marketing purposes, which may include contacting you by email, telephone or post with information, news, and offers on our products and services. You will not be sent any unlawful marketing or spam. We will always work to fully protect your rights and comply with our obligations under UK GDPR and you will always have the opportunity to opt-out.
7. How Long Will We Keep Your Personal Data?
We will not keep your personal data for any longer than is necessary other than the reason(s) for which it was first collected. Your personal data will therefore be kept for no longer than is necessary for us to comply with legal requirements.

8. How and Where Do We Store or Transfer Your Personal Data?
We will only store or transfer your personal data in the UK and the EU. This means that it will be fully protected under the Data Protection Act 2018 and UK GDPR.

9. Do We Share Your Personal Data?
We will not share any of your personal data with any third parties for any purposes, subject to one important exception. In some limited circumstances, we may be legally required to share certain personal data, which might include yours, if we are involved in legal proceedings or complying with legal obligations, a court order, or the instructions of a government authority.

10. How Can You Access Your Personal Data?
If you want to know what personal data we have about you, you can ask us for details of that personal data and for a copy of it (where any such personal data is held). This is known as a “Subject Access Request”.

All subject access requests should be made in writing and sent to the email or postal addresses shown in Part 11. To make this as easy as possible for you, a Subject Access Request Form is available for you to use. You do not have to use this form, but it is the easiest way to tell us everything we need to know to respond to your request as quickly as possible.

There is not normally any charge for a Subject Access Request. If your request is ‘manifestly unfounded or excessive’ (for example, if you make repetitive requests) a fee may be charged to cover our administrative costs in responding.

We will respond to your subject access request within one month of receiving it. We aim to provide a complete response, including a copy of your personal data within that time. You will be kept fully informed of our progress.
