PRIVACY

Introduction

K3 Business Technology Group PLC (K3) and our group members (“we” or “us”) are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy.

This notice sets out how we may collect personal data from or about you, how we might use it and, importantly, what rights you have over your own personal data. Please read this notice carefully to understand how we will use and look after your personal data.

This notice applies to all of our products, services, activities and websites (unless they have their own privacy notice). By providing any personal information to us, visiting any of our websites or accessing or using any of our products or services, you agree that we may use your information as set out in this notice. This policy does not apply to third party products, services or activities that K3 does not control (and to which third party terms may apply).

This privacy notice is provided in a layered format so you can click through to the specific areas set out below.

This policy was first written in English. To the extent that any translated version conflicts with the English version, the English version will take priority.

Information About K3

The K3 group of companies is made up of different legal entities and more information about us can be found here http://www.k3btg.com/ (the K3 “Group”). This privacy notice is issued on behalf of the K3 Group so when we mention K3, “we”, “us” or “our” in this privacy notice, we are referring to the relevant company in the K3 Group responsible for processing (eg collecting, using and holding) your data.

For the purposes of data protection laws (primarily the Regulations (EU) 2016/679 (the General Data Protection Regulations or “GDPR”)), the (data) controller will be the company you or your employer purchased a product or service from or provided your data to.

We have appointed a data privacy manager who is responsible for matters relating to this notice. If you have any questions, including any requests to exercise your rights in relation to your personal data then please contact the data privacy manager at the address at the end of this privacy notice.

If you are not satisfied with how we handle your personal data then we would appreciate the chance to deal with your concerns in the first instance. However, you do have the right to make a complaint at any time to your data protection supervisory authority; in the UK this is the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) (www.ico.org.uk).
