Arc Trinova Limited, trading as Arcinova takes your privacy seriously is committed to protecting your personal information when you are using our services, including this website. Whenever you provide such information, we are legally obliged to use your information in line with all laws concerning the protection of personal information, including, in particular, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Please read this policy to understand how your personal information will be treated.
What information is collected
Arcinova collects information about all visitors to its website. This information is used to help Arcinova understand more about where its site traffic comes from, but does not contain any identifiable personal information about the visitor. The information that is collected tells us which pages are visited, for how long each page is viewed, the paths that a visitor takes within the website, as well as other general information, such as your screen settings.
Why we collect your information
Under data protection law, Arcinova can only use your Personal Information if Arcinova has a proper reason for doing so, for example:
- to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations
- for our legitimate interests (see below) or those of a third party
- for the performance of our contract with you or to take steps at your request before entering into a contract
- you have given consent.
A legitimate interest is when we have a business or commercial reason to use your Personal Information, so long as this is not overridden by your own rights and interests. We make sure we consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative) and your rights before we process your Personal Information for our legitimate interests. We do not use your Personal Information for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent or are otherwise required or permitted to by law).
How we collect your information
Who we share your information with
Once your personal data has been anonymised (as described above) we may, from time to time, share this data with data processors who use the data to provide help and advice to Arcinova. This data is not shared with any other third party and Arcinova has agreements in place with its data processors to ensure any personal data for which Arcinova could be considered the data controller is handled and processed in accordance with the GDPR.
Change of purpose
Arcinova will only use your Personal Information for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If we need to use your Personal Information for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.
We may process your Personal Information without your knowledge or consent, in compliance with the above rules, where this is required or permitted by law.
Arcinova may use your Personal Information to send you updates (by email, telephone or post) that might be of interest to you and/or information about our services, including new services.
Arcinova has a legitimate interest in processing your Personal Information for our business development purposes. This means we do not usually need your consent to send you sector updates and information about our services. However, in any situation where consent is needed, we will ask for this consent separately and clearly.
Arcinova will always treat your Personal Information with the utmost respect and we will never sell or share it with other organisations for marketing purposes.
You have the right to opt out of receiving marketing communications at any time by:
- using the ‘unsubscribe’ link in our emails.
We may ask you to confirm or update your marketing preferences if you instruct us to provide further services in the future, or if there are changes in the law, regulation, or the structure of our business.
On many of the pages of the site you will see ‘social buttons’. These enable users to share or bookmark the web pages. The buttons are for Twitter, and LinkedIn. In order to implement these buttons and connect them to the relevant social networks and external sites, there are scripts from domains outside of ARCINOVA. You should be aware that these sites are likely to be collecting information about what you are doing all around the internet, including when you are on the ARCINOVA website. If you click on any of these buttons, these sites will be registering that action and may use that information. You should check the respective policies of each of these sites to see how exactly they use your information and to find out how to opt out or delete such information.
External web services
We use a number of external web services to display content within our web pages, including Flickr, SlideShare and YouTube. This is not an exhaustive or complete list of the services we use, or might use in the future, when embedding content, but these are the most common. As with the social buttons we cannot prevent these sites, or external domains, from collecting information on your usage of this embedded content. If you are not logged in to these external services then they will not know who you are but are likely to gather anonymous usage information e.g. number of views, plays, loads etc.
Some emails that we send you have no tracking in at all and some emails allow us to track at an individual level, to see whether the user has opened and clicked on the email.
Whilst your information is held on our system, we will ensure that it is held securely and we take all appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorised access to or unauthorised alteration, disclosure or destruction of the information. We regularly review our information collection, storage and processing practices and our security measures to guard against unauthorised access.
Transfer of your information
We will not transfer any information collected from you to any third party without expressly seeking your consent before doing so, except in cases where we are required to disclose the information in order to comply with the law or any court order.
Your rights of access
You are entitled by law to request a copy of your personal information that ARCINOVA holds and to correct any errors. You are also entitled to request that your information is deleted from our records. If any such request is made, we will use our reasonable efforts to supply, amend or delete the personal information as requested.
