Under the new data protection law starting in May 2018 we have a number of lawful reasons that we can use (or 'process') your personal information. One of the lawful reasons is called 'Legitimate Interests'.
Broadly speaking ‘Legitimate Interests’ means that we can process your personal information if:
-We have a genuine and legitimate reason and we are not harming any of your rights and interests
So, what does this mean?
-When you provide your personal details to us we use your information for our legitimate business interests which are in the to supply premium, fast and secure hosting.
-Before doing this, though, we will also carefully consider and balance any potential impact on you and your rights.
Some typical examples of when we might use the approach are for preventing fraud, direct marketing, maintaining the security of our system, data analytics, enhancing, modifying or improving our services, identifying usage trends and determining the effectiveness of our campaigns and sales.Our vision
The vision of Tech-Hosts is to “Supply WordPress users with a premium quality Managed Hosting service.”Our objective is to:
“Our object is to provide expert customer service alongside fast and secure website hosting.”
Tech-Hosts will use several ways to achieve our mission and to support our objectives: We believe that people who share our interests would like to know about web hosting packages and features.
We will process the personal information you have supplied to us to conduct and manage our business to enable us to give you the most appropriate marketing, information, service and products and provide the best and most secure experience. These are what we consider to be our 'Legitimate Interests'.Our interests
The following are some examples of when and why we would use this approach:
-Direct Marketing: Where appropriate we will contact you by email and telephone with marketing and sales updates which further the aims and objectives of the group. Where absolutely possible we will make sure our communications are relevant to you, tailored to your interests.
-Personalisation: Where the processing enables us to enhance, modify, personalise or otherwise improve our services/communications for the benefit of our supporters.
-Research: To determine the effectiveness of promotional campaigns and advertising and to develop our products, services, systems and relationships with you.
-Due Diligence: We may need to conduct investigations on customers, potential customers and business partners to determine if those companies and individuals have been involved or convicted of offences such as fraud, bribery and corruption.
We will also hold information about you so that we can respect your preferences for being contacted by us.Your interests
When we process your personal information for our legitimate interests, we will consider and balance any potential impact on you and your rights under data protection and any other relevant law.
Our legitimate business interests do not automatically override your interests – we will not use your personal data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent or are otherwise required or permitted to by law).
Remember, you can change the way you hear from us or withdraw your permission for us to process your personal details at any time by using our contact form on the 'Contact Us.’
