Welcome to ITQuoter, a platform that lets you configure, price and quote IT products.
As further detailed below, if you reside in the United Kingdom, European Union (“EU”), or European Economic Area (“EEA”), you may have additional rights with respect to your personal information (such as under the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”)).
We may gather two types of information about you from the ITQuoter Services:
We may receive personal information about you from various third parties including analytics providers (such as Google) and/or financial and transaction information from our payment processors (such as National Australia Bank).
Where we need to collect personal information by law, or for the purposes of providing the Services to you, failure to provide necessary personal information when requested may result in certain services not being available to you.
We may use the personal information we collect from you:
Where we need your consent so that we can send marketing communications to you, we will obtain your consent before doing so. You have the right to withdraw consent to marketing communications at any time by emailing us at email@example.com, or by unsubscribing through the unsubscribe link in the email. If you elect not to receive communications or ask to be removed from a mailing list we may still send you communications where it is necessary for the provision of the Services or to provide you with details of the Services.
For UK, EU and EEA residents: We try to ensure all our activities relating to personal information are necessary and have a lawful basis for processing. These bases include:
We set out below our understanding of the different categories of personal information we may collect about you and the lawful basis on which we may need to process your information. Please contact us by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to learn more.
We will only use your personal information for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If we need to use your personal information for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.
Please note that we may process your personal information without your knowledge or consent, in compliance with the above rules, where this is required or permitted by law.
We will only share personal information with other organisations or individuals in the following limited circumstances:
(i) hosting and storage providers;
(ii) maintenance, support and backup providers; and
(iii) payment processors.
We will ensure that these parties agree to use personal information only as required to perform their functions (and not for other purposes), and to process the personal information in accordance with applicable privacy laws.
For UK, EU and EEA residents: Where we share your personal information with our service providers, these entities will be data processors and will only process personal information under our instructions. Where we disclose your personal information to other third parties, these parties may be (unless otherwise stated) controllers of the information.
We may use cookie files containing information that can identify the computer you are working from. A cookie file is anonymous and is only used to identify visits from the same web browser.
We may use the information generated by cookie files to: (a) track traffic patterns to and from the Website and/or the ITQuoter platform; (b) ensure any communications are being shown to the most appropriate person; and (c) enable you to enter the Website and/or the ITQuoter platform, use the Services and visit registered user-only areas of the Website and/or the ITQuoter platform.
We also use remarketing services to advertise on third party websites to you after you have visited the Website. Our third party vendors, including Google, show you advertising for our Services on sites across the Internet using cookies.
For UK, EU and EEA residents: Please see our Cookies Policy.
We do not control the practices of content providers, advertisers, partners and other third parties connected with the Services and to whom you provide personal information whilst using the Services. The Website and Services may contain links to other sites, which may not follow the same privacy policies that we adopt. We recommend that you check any relevant privacy policies before providing your personal information to any third party.
We use software and systems which analyse information provided through the Website and Services on an aggregated basis. This information is collected and aggregated so you cannot be identified personally and no personal information is stored about you through these analytics.
We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal information from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. As no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be completely secure, we cannot ensure the security of any information you transmit or receive through Website and/or Services. While we take precautions to minimise the related risks, these activities are conducted at your own risk.
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.
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
You have the right to make a complaint at any time to the relevant supervisory authority for data protection issues in your country. We would, however, appreciate the chance to deal with your concerns before you approach them so please contact us in the first instance.
For UK, EU and EEA residents:
We will only retain your personal information for as long as reasonably necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or reporting requirements. To determine the appropriate retention period for personal information, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal information, the purposes for which we process your personal information and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or other requirements.
Under certain circumstances, you may have the following additional rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal information (in addition to those mentioned above):
If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please email email@example.com. In addition where the GDPR applies to our processing you also have the right to lodge a complaint with the relevant supervisory authority (for example ICO in the UK) but we would value the opportunity to resolve the matter ourselves first where possible.
Many of our external third parties are based outside the UK, EU and EEA so their processing of your personal information will involve a transfer of information outside these jurisdictions. Whenever we transfer your personal information out of the UK, EU or EEA, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:
Please contact us if you want further information on the specific mechanism used by us when transferring your personal information out of the UK, EU and EEA.
