Plan-Net takes data protection very seriously and understands the importance of protecting your privacy and Personal Information. “Personal Information” is any information that identifies you as an individual such as your name, date of birth and email address.
Plan-Net has completed applicable Privacy Impact Assessments (also known as Data Protection Impact Assessments under GDPR) for activities related to our processing of Personal Information.
We collect your Personal Information in various circumstances, but in particular:
If we are seeking to employ you or set-up a contract with you then it will be essential for you to provide Personal Information to enable this to be completed. However, in many other circumstances your decision to disclose your personal data is entirely voluntary, and by doing so, you are taking an affirmative action by providing us with specific consent to use your personal data only for the purposes for which you have disclosed it to us.
We will at all times handle and store your personal data in accordance with industry best practice aligned with our ISO27001 certification, the international standard for information security. This includes the activities and procedures undertaken by our own personnel and authorised third parties, and the technical controls which we have implemented to prevent unauthorised access, compromise or theft of information from our applications, supporting computer systems and premises.
GDPR specifies a set of personal data categories which are “sensitive”, and which requires special consideration by Data Controllers (a Data Controller is defined as the person or body who determines the purposes for which and the manner in which any personal data is to be processed). Our websites and any service available from our websites do not knowingly collect or process any sensitive personal data. However in certain circumstances, for example if you are applying for a job with Plan-Net, we may collect sensitive personal information if you provide it to us e.g. on your CV.
Personal information we collect about you may include the following:
On some occasions, our processing of your data is based on it being necessary to fulfil a contract. Examples include when we are setting you up on our systems as an employee, or when we are preparing a contract to which you are a party.
On most occasions we process your data on the basis of our Legitimate Interest, including when we send promotional material to you. Any direct marketing activities that we conduct are performed in accordance with the ICO’s Direct Marketing Guidelines for business to business communications.
You may opt-out of such marketing at any time and we will always make it easy for you to by, for example, including a link to do so in any email that we send to you.
We share your Personal Information with our third party service providers including our accountants, lawyers, auditors, pension providers etc. as well as hosting providers, storage providers and technical outsourced service providers who assist us in carrying out our business activities.
We may also share your Personal Information with governmental and other public authorities, such as the police, courts, tax authorities etc. in order to comply with relevant legal processes and applicable laws.
We do not share your Personal Information with any other non-connected third parties.
We may use your personal data in any of the following ways:
