At Big Eye Deers, we are committed to protecting your privacy. When you request information from us, we obtain information about you. We use the information we collect about you to process enquiries and provide a greater customer service experience.
We have a legal obligation under the Data Protection Act 1998 to prevent your information becoming victim of a breach in security. We must also ensure that the data we hold is accurate, adequate, relevant and not excessive. This privacy statement explains what personal data Big Eye Deers collects from you and how we use it.
The type of Personal Information we store
When personal information is collected from you we will make it clear what information we require in order to provide you with the information, services or goods you need. No further information needs to be shared unless you choose to share it.
The only personal information we require from you is a name and surname; whereby the business has its own postal address, and contact info including a business email. When this information is not business related, i.e. a business email account hasn’t yet been created, we will collect and store additional personal information but never more than an email address, postal address, and a telephone/mobile number.
Any personal information held by Big Eye Deers will have been disclosed by yourself. We do not outsource lead generation or search the web collecting personal details of business personnel or others.
Personal information under GDPR
We process personal data under the legal GDPR basis of legitimate interest.
Personal information is collected and stored once a business person reaches out to enquire about our services and proceeds to use them. We use your information for the purpose of:
- Identifying a project lead(s) on behalf of the business.
- Maintaining business conversations.
- Project completion.
- In the unlikely event of a serious issue that could harm client businesses we require methods of contact suitable for outside business hours.
- Driving business growth with particular website advice and suggestions.
We store personal information securely on our computer systems. Restricting access to those who have a need to know, and for staff who need to know we train them in handling the information securely.
Disclosing your information
In connection with the data uses described above, we may share your information with third party softwares or programs. This means sharing your information with:
- Harvest, as a means of processing your payment and conducting fraud prevention
- MailChimp, for the purpose of sending marketing information and latest tech updates
- Teamwork, in order to monitor and track project progress with yourself
We won’t share your information with any other organisations for marketing, market research or commercial purposes, and we don’t pass on your details to other websites where there is no basis of legitimate interest for you or Big Eye Deers.
There are certain reasons we have to keep hold of your information. We keep information while you’re our client or after you’ve left us, but only as long as we need it for the purposes described above. How long we keep it depends very much on the type of information and purpose.
For example we might need to stop fraud and abuse, sort out disagreements, prove your account existed, or follow any legal obligations. We may also keep information about how you use our products or services. In every case, the duration that we need to keep the information may be different, but we will only keep the information for as long as we need it.
