Purposes and legitimate grounds for processing of personal data.
There are several purposes for the processing of personal data by FDPR. Personal data is processed by FDPR for managing the relationships with customers, facilitating transactions and payments, and for managing, developing and analysing our customer service. Personal data is also used to direct marketing at special customer groups, and other business activities related to any of these activities.
We process personal data to provide you with our services.
Personal data is also processed by FDPR for the following purposes:
To provide our Services and carry out our contractual obligations.
We process personal data in the first place to be able to offer the Services to our customers and Users and to run, maintain and develop our business. In some cases, personal data may be processed in order to carry out our contractual obligations towards the User. We may use the data for example to offer essential functionalities of the Services and to provide access to the Services. If User contacts our customer service, we will use the provided information for answering questions and solving possible issues.
For customer communication.
We may process personal data for the purpose of contacting Users regarding our Services and to inform Users of changes in our Services. Data may also be used for research and analysis purposes in order to improve our Services.
For relevant offers.
When we have new programs or services that are of relevant interest based on your engagement with our previous training materials and service, we may let you know about these via email, phone, and/or text.
For quality improvement and trend analysis.
We may process information regarding the use of the Services to improve the quality of our Services e.g. by analysing any trends in the use of our Services. When possible, we will do this using only aggregated, non- personally identifiable data.
Legitimate grounds for processing.
We process personal data to perform our contractual obligations towards Users and to comply with legal obligations. Furthermore, we process personal data to pursue our legitimate interest to run, maintain and develop our business. In some parts of the Services, Users may be requested to grant their consent for the processing of personal data. In this event, Users may withdraw their consent at any time.
Transfer to countries outside of The United Kingdom.
We store the Users’ personal data primarily within the United Kingdom. However, we have service providers in several geographical locations. As such, we and our service providers may transfer personal data to, or access it in, jurisdictions outside the UK or the User’s domicile.
We will take steps to ensure that the Users’ personal data receives an adequate level of protection in the jurisdictions in which it is processed. We provide adequate protection for the transfers of personal data to countries outside of the UK through a series of agreements with our service providers based on the Standard Contractual Clauses or other similar arrangements.
We usually keep your personal data within the UK, but might need to transfer or access it elsewhere, if so we’ll make sure your data is kept safe.
We only share personal data within the organisation of FDPR if and as far as reasonably necessary to perform and develop our Services. We do not share personal data with third parties outside of FDPR’s organization unless one of the following circumstances applies:
For legal reasons
We may share personal data with third parties outside FDPR’s organization if we have a good-faith belief that access to and use of the personal data is reasonably necessary to: (i) meet any applicable law, regulation, and/or court order; (ii) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues; and/or (iii) protect the interests, properties or safety of FDPR, our Users or the public in accordance with the law. When possible, we will inform Users about such transfer and processing.
To authorized service providers
For other legitimate reasons
With explicit consent
We may share personal data with third parties outside FDPR’s organization for other reasons than the ones mentioned before, when we have the User’s explicit consent to do so. The User has the right to withdraw this consent at all times.
We do not share your personal data with third-parties unless necessary to provide you with our services or for legal reasons.
FDPR does not store personal data longer than is legally permitted and necessary for the purposes of providing the Services or the relevant parts thereof. The storage period depends on the nature of the information and the purposes of processing. The maximum period may therefore vary per use. Typically, we will store User’s personal data for as long as the User or the relevant customer User represents is a registered subscriber or a registered user of our Services or for as long as we have another purpose to do so and, thereafter, for no longer than is required or permitted by law or reasonably necessary for internal reporting and reconciliation purposes. In general, personal data of Users are deleted within reasonable time after the User no longer uses any part of the Services or when the User makes a request regarding deletion of User’s personal data.
We only store your personal data for while you are using our services. The data will be deleted within reasonable time after you’ve stopped using our services or request your personal data to be deleted.
Right to access
FDPR offers access for the Users to the personal data processed by FDPR. This means that Users may contact us and we will inform what personal data we have collected and processed regarding the said User and the purposes such data are used for.
Right to withdraw consent.
In case the processing is based on a consent granted by User, User may withdraw the consent at any time. Withdrawing a consent may lead to fewer possibilities to use our Services.
Right to correct.
Users have the right to have incorrect, imprecise, incomplete, outdated, or unnecessary personal data we have stored about the User corrected or completed.
Right to deletion.
Users may also ask us to delete the User’s personal data from our systems. We will comply with such request unless we have a legitimate ground to not delete the data. We may not immediately be able to delete all residual copies from our servers and backup systems after the active data have been deleted. Such copies shall be deleted as soon as reasonably possible.
Right to object.
Users may object to certain use of personal data if such data are processed for other purposes than purposes necessary for the performance of our Services to the User or for compliance with a legal obligation. Users may also object any further processing of personal data after prior given consent. If User objects the further processing of personal data, this may lead to fewer possibilities to use our Services.
Right to restriction of processing.
Users may request us to restrict certain processing of personal data, this may however lead to fewer possibilities to use our Services.
Right to data portability.
