This policy sets out how we will use and share the information that you give us. This policy describes your relationship with Snaptron, Inc.
We operate in line with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) guidelines and other applicable data protection regulations. The GDPR describes how organizations must collect, handle, process, and store personal information.
These rules apply regardless of whether data is stored electronically, on paper, or on other materials. To comply with the law, personal information must be collected and used fairly, stored safely, and not disclosed unlawfully. GDPR is underpinned by eight important principals. These say that personal data must:
- Be processed fairly and lawfully
- Be obtained only for specific, lawful purposes
- Be adequate, relevant, and not excessive
- Be accurate and kept up to date
- Not be held for any longer than is necessary
- Processed in accordance with the rights of the data subjects
- Be protected in appropriate ways
- Not be transferred outside the European Economic Area, unless that country or territory also ensures an adequate level of protection
We take these responsibilities seriously; this document describes our approach to data protection. This policy helps to protect us from data security risks, including:
- Commercial, financial, and reputational damage caused by a data breach.
- Failing to offer choice. For instance, all individuals should be free to choose how the company uses data relating to them.
- Reputational damage. For instance, the company could suffer if hackers successfully gained access to sensitive data.
- Any other loss or damage caused as a result of failure to meet Data Protection regulations
