We may share your Personal Information with any member of our group, which means our subsidiaries and affiliates. We may need to share your information with our service providers, agents and trading counterparts. Generally, we require that third party organisations who handle or obtain Personal Information acknowledge its confidentiality and undertake to respect an individual’s right to privacy and comply with Data Protection Principles and the GDPR requirements.
We do not disclose or share information about any of our users (whether active or inactive) to any affiliated third parties or non-affiliated third parties other than in the manner and to the entities set forth below:
We are committed to protecting the security of your Personal Information. We use a variety of industry-standard security technologies and procedures that comply with the relevant laws and regulations to help protect your Personal Information from unauthorised access, use, or disclosure. Our cloud-based solution is hosted in highly secure data centres in the European Economic Area (EEA), and adheres to the highest standards of the industry. All communications are encrypted over SSL layer, data is backed up on a regular basis and encrypted at rest. In addition, access to our application layer is secured by Web Application Firewall (WAF) following OWASP core rule sets 3.0, and user communications require Multi Factor Authentication (MFA). Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our website or products, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.
We have also implemented physical and managerial procedures in order to help safeguard and prevent unauthorised access, use, alteration, modification and/or disclosure of your Personal Information. We restrict access to your Personal Information to those employees of Sharegain who have a business reason for accessing such information. We continuously educate and train our employees about the importance of confidentiality and privacy of customer information.
Although we use reasonable efforts to safeguard the security of your Personal Information, no method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. Also, any information you provide to us via email or by post is not protected by encryption and is vulnerable to interception during transmission. Therefore, we cannot guarantee the absolute security of your Personal Information and cannot accept responsibility for any misuse, loss, or alteration of information by third parties who, despite our efforts, obtain unauthorised access.
Your Personal Information will be stored by us for any varying duration to comply with our contractual, legal and regulatory obligations or to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights and claims.
Depending on applicable laws, you may have the right to access information held about you. Your right of access can be exercised in accordance with the relevant data protection legislation. Any access request will be free – unless the request is manifestly unfounded or excessive. We similarly have the right to refuse an access request on the same grounds. To obtain a copy of the Personal Information we hold about you, please write to us at our business address (provided at the bottom of this web page) or send us an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Information on the GDPR is also on the Information Commissioner’s website at http://www.ico.org.uk.
