Grounds for Processing Your Personal Data

We will only use your Personal Data if we have a lawful basis for doing so. Lawful bases for processing include consent, contractual necessity, and “legitimate interests” as further described below.

Contractual Necessity: Processing of Personal Data is necessary to perform a contract or take steps to enter into a contract with you (e.g. to provide you with Procim, to provide you with support and technical assistance or to provide other information relevant to your use of Procim).

Legitimate Interests: We process Personal Data on the grounds of legitimate interests as it is necessary to improve our Services by identifying user trends, effectiveness, technical issues and help us to market our products. We will always conduct this in a way that is proportionate, and that respects your data privacy rights.

Other Processing Grounds: From time to time we may also need to process Personal Data to comply with a relevant legal or regulatory obligation, if it is necessary to protect the vital interests of you or other data subjects, or if it is necessary for a task carried out in the public interest.


Storing Your Personal Data

Data that we collect and hold for you is stored on our secure servers that are managed by our dedicated hosting provider.  Our Procim hosted server infrastructure is located within the European Union (“EU”). If we do transfer or move Personal Data for Procim Users outside the EU, we will first notify you or your company.   In such circumstances, we will take all reasonable precautions to make sure that your data remains secure and is always handled in accordance with relevant legal or regulatory obligations.

Procim data transmitted over the internet is always encrypted using SSL. As we cannot however guarantee the security of data transmission over the internet, this data transmission is therefore entirely at your own risk. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for Procim, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. Password authentication is by default based on a minimum password requirement set within Procim.


Use of Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies

We may use certain monitoring and tracking technologies (such as cookies). These technologies are used to maintain, provide and improve our Services on an ongoing basis, and to provide our Website Visitors and our Procim Users with an improved experience.

Cookies: For some of these technologies to work properly, a small data file (“cookie”) must be downloaded and stored on your device. By default, we use persistent cookies for purposes of session and user authentication.

You may find links to third party websites or social media portals on our Services. These websites or portals will have their own privacy policies which you should check before using them. As we do not have any control over data submitted on third party websites or portals, we cannot accept any responsibility or liability for the data submitted on these websites or portals.

We may utilise selected services providers whose services and solutions complement, facilitate and enhance the delivery of our Services.   These may include data and cyber security services, communications delivery networks, billing and payment processing services, fraud detection and prevention services, e-mail distribution and monitoring services, and our legal and financial advisors among others.  Collectively these are referred to as “Third Party Service(s)”.

Such Third-Party Services may receive or otherwise have access to select information relevant to the provision and enhancement of our Services but where they may have access to Personal Data will be subject to the same standards and obligations detailed in this Privacy Policy.

Access to Your Personal Data and Other Data Subject Rights

You have certain rights with respect to your Personal Data, and we want to help you review and update your information to ensure it is accurate and up-to-date. We may limit or reject your request in certain cases, such as if it is frivolous or extremely impractical, if it jeopardizes the rights of others, if it is not required by law, or if the burden or expense of providing access would be disproportionate to the risks to your privacy in the case in question.

In some cases, we may also need you to provide us with additional information, which may include Personal Data, to verify your identity and the nature of your request. We will take reasonable steps to respond to all requests within 30 days.

Access: You can request more information about the Personal Data we hold about you and request a copy of such Personal Data.
