Purposes and lawful bases of data collection

Data from our website form or at conferences

If you complete an inquiry form on our website or give us your details in person, for example at a conference, we will contact you by email or phone so that we can discuss the products or services in which you have indicated an interest. Data that you provide will be added to our Customer Relationship Management system and used to send you marketing messages.  You can opt out of these messages at any time by using the unsubscribe link that we put in every email.

Our lawful basis for processing these data is Consent.  Unless you withdraw consent, we will keep your data in our systems.

Data from our marketing partners

Our marketing partners may contact you by phone or email in order to tell you about our services.   They will let you know who we are, where they obtained your data, and your right to opt out of future marketing.  We will absolutely respect that right.  If you express an interest in Spinnaker services, they will pass your data to us and we will contact you by email or phone and add your data to our CRM system so that we can continue to market to you.

Our lawful basis for processing these data is Legitimate Interest. Unless you exercise your right to object to processing, we will keep your data in our systems.

Client Data

When you become a client, we require your information in order for us to fulfill our contract with you.  Our legal basis for processing is Contractual Obligation.  We will also add your data to our CRM so that we can keep you updated with any information you might be interested in.  Our legal basis for this processing is legitimate interest.  We will continue to process your data in our systems.

Job Applications

If you submit a job application either directly or through a recruiter, our legal basis for processing your data is Consent.  We will use your information in connection with the specific job that you’ve applied for and it will be stored for the duration of your application. If we think there may be other roles for which you would be suitable, we will hold your details up to two years after completion of the initial application process.  We will only do this with your consent except where retention is required by law (for example candidates from the US, whose details will be held for seven years).

Your personal information may be passed to or accessed by Spinnaker companies both inside and outside the European Economic Area in order to offer relevant job opportunities to you. You may withdraw your permission for your data to be processed outside the EU by making a request to our team using the Contact details below.  You can update your CV at any time by simply submitting a new CV.

Sometimes we use publicly available sources of data such as LinkedIn in order to source candidates.  Our legal basis for processing these data is Legitimate Interest and, in these situations, we will provide you with our privacy policy within a maximum of 30 days of obtaining your data.  Should be interested in working with us, we will ask your consent to store your data as above.

This right is only available if the original processing was on the basis of consent, the processing is by automated means and if the processing is based on the fulfillment of a contractual obligation.

The right to object

You have the right to object to our processing of your data where

  • Processing is based on legitimate interest;
  • Processing is for the purpose of direct marketing;
  • Processing is for the purposes of scientific or historic research;
  • Processing involves automated decision-making and profiling.

Security

We have what we believe are appropriate security controls in place to protect personal data. Risk assessment, including assessing risks to the rights and freedoms of data subjects, is at the heart of our ISMS. We do not, however, have any control over what happens between your device and the boundary of our information infrastructure. You should be aware of the many information security risks that exist and take appropriate steps to safeguard your own information. We accept no liability in respect of breaches that occur beyond our sphere of control.
