SYSTEM PRIVACY POLICY

Assure Response - System Privacy Policy

Introduction


SHE Software is committed to safeguarding the privacy of all our customers, “Customer Data”, “Personal Data” and partners, by protecting, storing and processing the Information you give to us in accordance with our contract, best practice and the relevant Data Protection Legislation. What personal information we collect and how we use it will depend on your relationship with us. If you have any questions about this policy and what it means for you, we are more than happy to discuss your own particular concerns, so you can make an informed decision about how your data is used.

Email our Data Protection Officer at dpo@shesoftware.com with any questions or concerns.

Customer Data and Personal Data

Customers of Assure Response may submit various types of information and data into the system for hosting and processing purposes (“Customer Data”). SHE Software staff will never use “Customer Data” for any purpose other than that laid out in our contract together. Access to the Assure Response system is provided to our user organizations only ever under a current contract in which the Customer (acting as Data Controller) warrants that it has a lawful basis under the Data Protection Legislation to transfer “Personal Data” to SHE Software (as Data Processor) for processing and/or enable lawful collection by the SHE Software of the “Personal Data”.

As regards “Personal Data” or “Personally Identifiable information” or “Personal Information”, Assure Response requires only a name and work email address in order to register a user with the system. Additional “Personal Data” requested is controlled by the Customer, and they act as the Data Controller for that information and SHE acts as a Data Processor; so aspects of this Privacy Policy may not apply to such additional “Personal Data”.

If you are an individual, our legal basis for collecting and using information about you and your activity within Assure Response will depend on the information concerned and the specific context in which we collect it. Normally, in connection with the use of the Assure Response system, we will only collect your personal information where: (a) we have your consent to do so, (b) where we need the personal information to perform a contract with you or your employer (i.e. so you can access and use Assure Response), or (c) where the processing is in our or a third party’s legitimate interests (and not overridden by your data protection interests or fundamental rights and freedoms).

We may process your “Personal Data” held within our hosted solution only where we have written permission to do so under our contract or it has been received from a verified, authorized customer contact, which will normally mean such a customer user has used the Assure Response system to input, edit, amend, delete or otherwise process the data in line with our customer contract.

Assure Response Information Retention:

We may retain Assure Response system information for 12 months from the date a Customer ceases to use our service, unless we receive a specific request to remove data sooner than this. Please note that in certain circumstances, we may hold “Personal Data” for a longer period, for example, if we are processing an ongoing claim or believe in good faith that the law or a relevant regulator may reasonably in our view expect or require us to preserve such data, to maintain system backups, to maintain security, prevent fraud or abuse, to enforce our legal agreements or fulfill a request to “unsubscribe”. We may retain de-personalized information after a customer account has been closed.

Your Rights

You have certain rights regarding your personal information, subject to applicable law:

1. Access to your personal data
2. Rectification or deletion of your personal data
3. A restriction on the processing of your personal data
4. To object to the processing of your personal data
5. A transfer of your personal data (data portability) in a structured, machine readable and commonly used format
6. To withdraw your consent to us processing your personal data, at any time.

If you are user from an Assure Response customer organisation, in the first instance it may be more expedient and appropriate to approach your own organisation (the Data Controller) with such a Subject Access Request, as they may be able to more readily advise you of any contractual or other basis that exists between you for storing and/or processing your data using the Assure Response system. SHE could then assist your organisation in fulfilling such a request according to the Data Protection Legislation.

To ask to exercise any of your rights with SHE Software directly, please contact our Data Protection Officer at dpo@shesoftware.com (via your work email preferably) and be sure to include; your name, your contact telephone number and the information you are requesting access to, or want corrected or removed.

Our aim is to provide you with the information you seek without undue delay, but you can expect a response from us within 20 working days. If requests are complex or numerous, we will inform you within 20 working days of receipt and may in that case extend the deadline for reverting with the information for a reasonable length of time depending on the specific circumstances.

To protect your information, we will ask you to verify your identity before proceeding with any request you make under this Privacy Notice. If you have authorised a third party to submit a request on your behalf, we will ask them to prove they have your permission to act.
