PRIVACY NOTICE

The following sets out how we collect and use personal information collected via the Acteon website. Any personal information provided via the website in respect of career/job enquiries and applications is processed separately and in accordance with our candidate privacy notice.

Type of personal information we collect
We collect and process the following information:

  • Name
  • Email
  • Phone number
  • Job title/position
  • Location

How and why we collect personal information
The personal information we process is provided to us directly by you for one of the following reasons:

  • Enquiries about products, services or collaborative working;
  • General enquiries; and
  • Marketing communications.

We use the information that you have given us in order to:

  • Direct your enquiry to the correct person/supply you with the products, services or information you have requested;
  • Analyse and assess trends so that we can administer, support and improve our business and the services we offer;
  • Send you details of products and services which may be of interest to you;
  • Provide you with access to certain parts of our website; and
  • Contact you for your views on our products and services.

The lawful bases we rely on for processing this information are:

  • Consent: you are able to withdraw your consent at any time. You can do this by contacting us using the details in the “Our contact details” section of this notice;
  • Contractual obligation: in circumstances where, for example, your enquiry leads to a contract with us or one of our group companies.

How we store your personal information
Your information is securely stored on our servers or the servers of relevant third party providers (see the “Third parties and international transfers” section of this notice).

We employ security measures to protect your information from access by unauthorised persons and against unlawful processing, accidental loss, destruction or damage including but not limited to:

  • HubSpot has a SOC 2 Type I report. Their SOC 2 report attests to the controls they have in place governing the availability, confidentiality, and security of customer data as they map to Trust Service Principles (TSPs) established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). In addition, Hubspot’s SOC 3 report attesting to HubSpot’s commitment to meeting the rigorous industry standards established by the TSPs is publicly available.
  • Sessions are protected with in-transit encryption using 2,048-bit or better keys and TLS 1.0 or above. Users with modern browsers will use TLS 1.2 or 1.3.

Personal information which is processed on the basis of your consent will be retained for as long as your consent remains active. Personal information which is processed on the basis of contractual obligation will be retained in line with the details set out in the relevant contract. We will then dispose of your information by following the GDPR-compliant deletion process within our CRM system, which deletes the contact’s personal information so no further contact can be made.

Third parties and international transfers
We will share, transfer or disclose your personal information to:

  • Our group companies which include our subsidiaries, branches and representative offices;
  • Another legal entity for the purposes of a joint venture/collaboration between that party and Acteon or one of its group companies;
  • Another legal entity for the purposes of sale/merger between that party and Acteon or one of its group companies;
  • Third party service providers used to protect the security and integrity of our business, including our databases and systems;
    • we use Microsoft 365 for the day to day running of our business
  • Third party service providers used to facilitate client relationship management;
    • we use Hubspot to manage enquiries from our website and Microsoft Dynamics for our CRM platform
  • Legal advisers or public authorities where we are required to do so by law; and
  • Any other third parties to which you have explicitly consented.

Your personal data will be transferred to third countries (i.e. countries outside of the UK or EEA and without an adequacy decision from the European Commission or UK Secretary of State). The country to which your personal data will be transferred is dependent upon the enquiry you have made but countries include, as a minimum, all countries in which Acteon companies are located (where we operate) and could include any country in the world dependent upon one of the reasons for transfer listed above being required. In circumstances where your personal data is transferred to a third country, it will be transferred pursuant to an appropriate safeguard (standard contractual clauses) or exception/derogation.

We may also provide links to third party websites via the Acteon website. This is to ensure that your experience of our website is as informative and useful as possible. We do not accept any responsibility or liability for your use of any third party websites accessed via the Acteon website. We encourage you to review the cookies and privacy notices of each third party website you use before disclosing personal information or accepting cookies.
