Compliance organizations, or primary users to whom you provide data to and whom contract our services to act as processors for that information
Service providers acting as processors through whom we send out information

We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law.

5. Security of your Personal Data
QLBS has put in place appropriate security measures to secure your personal information from unauthorised access, use or disclosure, and prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed.
QLBS secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. If personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
6. International Transfers
We share our customer and prospect marketing information across our company in Europe, the UK, Australia and New Zealand. The EU Commission considers that both the UK, Australia and New Zealand ensure an adequate level of protection for the transfer of personal data from the EEA to them.
When we use our service providers, your data will be transferred, stored and/or processed outside the European Economic Area (EEA) as our suppliers sometimes operate from outside of the EEA. We will only transfer your data outside of the EEA in compliance with data protection laws and provided appropriate or suitable safeguards are in place to protect your data, these being either Standard Contractual Clauses, Binding Corporate Rules or, in the case of transfers to the US, an EU-US Privacy-Shield certification. Please contact us if you would like details of the appropriate safeguards.
7. Data Retention
How long will you use my personal data for?
We will retain your personal data for as long as necessary to provide you with our products and services. We will also retain your personal data as necessary to fulfil our contractual obligations and to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
We will retain personal data that is part of our marketing database for a period for which we think that information is relevant. We actively manage our marketing database so that only relevant personal data is retained.
Where we no longer need to process your personal data, we will delete your personal data from our systems unless we need to retain a limited amount of information to make sure that we act in accordance with your wishes.
Where permissible, we will also delete your personal data on your request.
If you have questions about our data retention practices, please contact us through firstname.lastname@example.org.
8. Your Legal Rights
Under GDPR, the legal basis for processing information is consensual and contractual in nature.
You have the right:
To access any personal data we hold about you. We will provide a copy of your personal data together with details of the purposes of the processing, the types of personal data we hold and the people to whom your personal data has been disclosed;
To have inaccurate or incomplete personal data corrected or to restrict the processing of personal data whilst the accuracy is checked;
In certain circumstances, to have data we hold about you transferred to yourself or another data controller. Note, this right only applies to information that is processed by automated means which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you;
To ask to have personal data we hold about you erased. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us to continue to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law;
To ask us not to process your personal data for direct marketing purposes;
To object to the processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms;
To withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent; and
To lodge a complaint with the data protection supervisory authority applicable to you, if you have a concern about your personal data.
You can exercise your rights at any time by contacting us at
What we may need from you
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
Time limit to respond
We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
