4. What is the legal basis for processing personal data?

Such legitimate interests are to promote the software and services offered by Gate Software and/or to market those products to existing and potential clients.
This is in accordance with Article 6 Regulations (EU) 2016/679 (the General Data Protection Regulations or “GDPR”), and with UK GDPR (retained EU law).
5. What are your rights as a Data Subject?
At any point whilst Gate Software is in possession of or processing your personal data, all Data Subjects have the following rights:
- Request access to your personal data.
- Request correction of your personal data.
- Request erasure of your personal data.
- Object to processing of your personal data.
- Request restriction of processing your personal data.
- Request transfer of your personal data.
- Right to withdraw consent.
If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please email our Data Protection Officer at email@example.com.
You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive, or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.
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.
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 multiple requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
6. How do we secure your information?
Protecting your personal data is important to us and we have put in place security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used, or accessed in an unauthorized way, altered, or disclosed. However, we cannot guarantee that user data will be immune from malicious attack or compromise.
We also limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know such data. 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 breaches and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
7. How long do we keep your personal data?
We will only keep your personal data for as long as is necessary to fulfil the purposes for which we collected it. We may retain your data to satisfy any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements so for example we need to keep certain information about you for 6 years after you cease to be a client for tax purposes.
We may anonymize your personal data (so that you can no longer be identified from such data) for research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.
8. How can you withdraw consent?
You have the right to withdraw consent for our processing of your personal data at any time, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
You also have the right to stop us from sending you marketing communications only. You can do this by selecting your contact preferences at the point where you provide us with your information on our website, applications or services, using any preference centers we give you access to or by sending an email to email@example.com.
9. When do we disclosure data to third parties?
We will only share your information with third parties, which are either related to or associated with the running of our business, and where it is necessary for us to do so. These third parties include:
- Our accountants & advisors, Gate Software companies and affiliates.
- Third party database hosters and service providers who help us manage our data, website and databases.
- Third party business partners, where you have explicitly indicated a wish to receive products and/or services from them.
We require all third parties to whom we transfer your data to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We only allow such third parties to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.
We do not otherwise share your information with any other external organization without your consent unless required to do so by law, for safeguarding purposes or to protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of Gate Software, its users or the public, as required or permitted by law.
Gate Software has no intention of sharing your personal data with any third party for marketing purposes. We undertake to request your express opt-in consent should we wish to do this in the future.
10. What about transfers outside of the European Economic Area?
Personal data in the European Union is protected by data protection laws but other countries do not necessarily protect your personal information in the same way.
Our website and some databases or parts of them may also be hosted by providers in the United States or otherwise outside of the EEA (which means all the EU countries plus Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein), and this means that we may transfer any information which has been submitted by you through the website or via any other means outside of the EEA to the United States or to other territories outside of the EEA. When you send an email to us, this will also be stored on our email servers which may be hosted in the United States.
Our service providers who help us provide our website, applications, software, marketing, and other services may also be located in the United States or otherwise outside of the EEA and this means that we may transfer any information which has been submitted by you through the website or via any other means outside of the EEA to the United States or to other territories outside of the EEA.
All Gate Software companies are subject to data protection policies designed to protect data in accordance with EU data protection laws. In each case, such transfers are made in accordance with the requirements of GDPR and may be based on the use of the European Commission’s Standard Model Clauses for transfers of personal data outside the EEA.
11. What is the procedure for complaints?
We are committed to protecting your personal data - but if for some reason you are not happy with any aspect of how we collect and use your data, you have the right to complain to Gate Software’s Data Protection Officer by sending us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You also have the right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority in the country where you live, where you work, or where the alleged infringement took place.
