You have the right to lodge a complaint with the Data Protection Commissioner if you are unhappy with how we are processing your Data.
Information we may collect from you
We may collect and process the following data about you:
· Contact information (business name, business address, contact telephone number and email address) and your IP address, your browser type, and your referring URL
Lawfulness of Processing
There are six alternative ways in which the lawfulness of a specific case of processing of personal data may be established under the GDPR.
It is Granite Digital’s policy to identify the appropriate basis for processing and to document it, in accordance with the regulation. The options are described in brief in the following sections.
Unless it is necessary for a reason allowable in the GDPR, Proud Paints will always obtain explicit consent from a data subject to collect and process their data. Transparent information about our usage of their personal data will be provided to data subjects at the time that consent is obtained and their rights with regard to their data explained, such as the right to withdraw consent.
2. Performance of a Contract
Where the personal data collected and processed are required to fulfil a contract with the data subject, explicit consent is not required. This will often be the case where the contract cannot be completed without the personal data in question e.g. a delivery cannot be made without an address to deliver to.
3. Legal Obligation
If the personal data is required to be collected and processed in order to comply with the law, then explicit consent is not required. This may be the case for some data related to employment and taxation for example, and for many areas addressed by the public sector.
4. Vital Interests of the Data Subject
In a case where the personal data are required to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person, then this may be used as the lawful basis of the processing. Proud Paints will retain reasonable, documented evidence that this is the case, whenever this reason is used as the lawful basis of the processing of personal data.
5. Task Carried Out in the Public Interest
Where Proud Paints needs to perform a task that it believes is in the public interest or as part of an official duty then the data subject’s consent will not be requested. The assessment of the public interest or official duty will be documented and made available as evidence where required.
6. Legitimate Interests
If the processing of specific personal data is in the legitimate interests of Proud Paints and is judged not to affect the rights and freedoms of the data subject in a significant way, then this may be defined as the lawful reason for the processing. Again, the reasoning behind this view will be documented.
