GPDR / Privacy Statement

The processing of personal data is governed by the General Data ProtectionRegulation 2016/679 (the “GDPR”). Custom Creative Ltd and any of our chosen outsourced third-party service providers who are involved in the processing and control of your information, are referred to in this privacy statement as ‘we’.

How did we come by your personal information and why?

We have researched and collected your ‘Corporate Subscriber’ data for marketing purposes. We are trying to promote our goods and services to your business or place of work. Some of your data may have been collected directly from you or a colleague but is more likely from a publicly available resource like the internet. Having identified your business as one we want to engage with and offer our products and services to we may have used a number of resources to collect ‘employee contact details’ (Referred to as ‘Corporate Subscribers’), ie. while researching our target audience, we may have collected your first and last names from one resource and another piece of data from another resource.We never collect and store any information which is not necessary for its intended use. While acquiring this data we are looking for the appropriate jobroles/functions within organisations we wish to communicate and engage with and whose responsibility it might be to procure our products and services.

Corporate Subscribers

The rules on processing ‘corporate subscriber’ data (Employees of Companies) are different than those of ‘individuals’. We can consider ‘Legitimate Interest’ as a legal basis for processing as we have done here and are not forced to rely on‘consent’ as a legal basis for processing. This does not in any way undermine your ‘right to object to future processing’ and indeed access and control or delete all the information we have stored for you. You can see more about our privacy statement further on in this statement, under Privacy Statement.

How do we process your data?

We may contact you via email or telephone to discuss potential work-related opportunities, but only in connection with work related matters and never personal matters. We do not hold or store any information which could identify you outside your place of work. We may store your first and last name as well as your job role and email address. We do not share this information with anybody outside the service providers contracted to assist us with this processing. We take steps to ensure that all our chosen 3rd party service providers are also compliant with the general data protection regulation 2016/679.

How Long will we keep your information?

If we have an ongoing engagement between our organisations then we may store this information for as long as we need to communicate with you effectively. Should we fail to engage or engagement ceases for whatever reason then it is our policy to review your information after 12 months to consider extending the time period for a further 12 months or deleting your data. As part of our commitment to ‘data transparency’ and accountability and in compliance with the general data protection regulation, access and management of the information we hold for you has been made simple for you to control using the email link below. We have processed your ‘Corporate Subscriber’ information based on our legitimate interest, for business to business marketing purposes. You have been processed regarding work related matters and not a personal matter. Our legitimate interest does not in any way undermine your right to access, object to future processing, and portability or the removal of the data we are storing. Please use the eto obtain the data we hold and you can adjust any part of it.
