Your Personal Data and How We Collect It
Personal data relates to a living individual who can be identified from that data.
Whilst using our website or any services we offer, you may be required to provide some personal data (such as your name, email address, contact number for example).
Collecting and processing specific, relevant information is a necessary part of us being able to offer you our services and/or products to help with your business development or dealing with any enquiries or requests you may have.
We will only use your personal data fairly and securely and will never do anything with it (such as sharing with any other party) that you have either not clearly agreed to, or that could be considered irresponsible, or without a clear legitimate interest behind it. The lawful basis we use for processing of personal data collected by us via the website is referred to by GDPR as “Legitimate Interest” for “direct marketing”. The Information Commissioner’s Office (“ICO”) recommends that businesses using this basis conduct a “Legitimate Interests Assessment” (“LIA”), and we have done this. For example, if we see that somebody from a Marketing Services Agency has downloaded content from our website, we may try and contact you as it would be reasonable to assume you may have an interest in our services.
Although our processing is based on Legitimate Interest, you retain the right not to consent to this processing. In order to exercise this right, you can contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also contact us via the following address: STIKKE, St. John’s House, 54 St. John’s Square, London, EC1V 4JL, United Kingdom. To help us to ensure that your request is dealt with appropriately please could you title your email or other communication “DATA SUBJECT – WITHDRAWAL OF CONSENT”.
We will only use your personal data for the purposes we state at the point you provide it to us – for example, when you enquire through our website or over the phone to find out about our services and how Stikke may be able to help you.
Stikke will ensure that any personal data we collect from you will only be used in a way that is relevant, fair, honest, sensitive, responsible and respectful towards your privacy.
We will only share your personal information with our employees, contractors, agents or professional advisors where it is necessary in order to fulfil a valid stated purpose as above.
We collect information from visitors to this website through the use of our online download forms and the email hyperlinks via our Contact information page.
We collect your details when you email us with an enquiry.
We will send you information according to the preferences you submitted via our online enquiry form.
In addition to the above, we collect information automatically about your visit to our website. Please see our Cookies Section for more details.
We do not collect, and our website has no facility for collecting, any “Special Categories” of “Personal Data” about you (this includes details about race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sex life, sexual orientation, political opinions, trade union membership, information about your health and genetic and biometric data). Nor do we collect any information about criminal convictions and/or offences.
We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business-related need-to-know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
