When you supply any personal information to us we have legal obligations towards you in the way we deal with that data. We must collect the information fairly, that is, we must explain the purpose and legal basis for us using it (this will be set out on the webpages where information may be requested or any form you are asked to complete). In general we process personal data in relation to the delivery of our services or in relation to the legitimate interests of the individual or Widgety (as data controller). Further information on the legal basis for processing of any data you have provided Widgety with can be obtained from our Data Protection Officer on the contact details below.
We must tell you if we want to pass the information on to anyone else. In general, any information you provide will only be used within Widgety and by its service providers. It will never be supplied to anyone outside Widgety without first obtaining your consent, unless we are obliged or permitted by law to disclose it.
We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as you are in receipt of the service you have requested, and remove it in the event that the purpose has been met or you request us to do so, unless we are obliged by law to retain it. Retention of data is governed by the Authority’s Retention and Disposal Policy.
In addition you have the following rights under data protection law:
Widgety Platform: You can export all the information we have about your user in your User Account page. This will download an archive file with this information. You can also delete your account should you wish to be removed from the platform.
Hosting: the Widgey platform is hosted on a Cloud Server by Bymark. This is a UK company, with servers located in the UK. Our images and attachments are hosted on Amazon Web Services, with servers located in the US. The only personal information which may be hosted there is your avatar (if you have uploaded one).
Analytics: we use Google Analytics to track analytics. The cookies management is available on your Privacy Settings page (in the User Account section).
To exercise any of the above rights please contact our Data Protection Officer, on the contact details below.
Where we are processing data with your consent you have a right to withdraw your consent at any time. You can do this by e-mailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You also may lodge a complaint about how we are processing your data with the Information Commissioners Office. Details of how to make a complaint are available on www.ico.org.uk.
