Cookies

Our site uses cookies to distinguish you from other visitors to provide you with a better experience and to help us improve our site. By continuing to browse the site, you are agreeing to our use of cookies.

A cookie is a small data file placed on the hard drive of your computer when you visit a website. A “session cookie” expires when you end your session (i.e. close your browser). A “persistent cookie” stores information on your hard drive so when you end your session and return to the same website at a later date, the cookie information is still available. A “web beacon” is a small string of code that represents a clear graphic image, a redirect URL or JavaScript and is used in conjunction with a cookie.

Our site may use session and persistent cookies. The cookies placed by the Kneat Solutions server are readable only by Kneat Solutions, and cookies cannot access, read or modify any other data on your computer. We may use web beacons alone or in conjunction with cookies to compile information about your usage of our site and interaction with emails from Kneat Solutions. For example, we may place web beacons in marketing emails that notify us when you click on a link in the email that directs you to our site, in order to improve our site and email communications.

Our site may contain links to other websites including share and/or “like” buttons. These other websites, services and applications may set their own cookies on users’ computers, collect data or solicit personal information. You should refer to their privacy policies to understand how your information may be collected and/or used.

Where we store your personal data and how long for

Our site is hosted on servers via AWS and support being provided by Kneat Solutions staff based in Limerick, however the personal information that we collect from you is input directly into our CRM, which is hosted and supported in the EEA, and our Hubspot database, which is hosted and supported in the US. For users based in the European Economic Area (EEA), this means that the data that we collect from you via our site will be transferred to, and stored outside the EEA. It may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for us. Kneat Solutions has signed EU Model Clauses with its group entities and with Hubspot, which means that such transfers would be lawful transfers of personal data outside the EEA, in accordance with EU Data Protection legislation.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is almost never completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the complete security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorized access.

We will keep a copy of your personal data for as long as you remain registered with our site/the applicable service or the contact person at any organisation we are dealing with and thereafter for such period as may be required for legal, audit and compliance purposes. This does not affect your right to opt out from receiving marketing communications, as outlined in the section “Your rights” below. If at any time after you are no longer registered with our site/the applicable service or are no longer the contact person at the applicable organisation that we are dealing with, you may request that your details are deleted from our CRM system, however you should be aware that if your details are deleted, this will mean we will have no record of any opting out that you may have requested and that you therefore may receive unsolicited communications in the future.

Uses made of the information

We use information held about you in the following ways:

  • To provide you with information via post, email or telephone, about our products or services that you request from us or which we feel may interest you, where you have consented to be contacted for such purposes;
  • To carry out our obligations arising from any contracts entered into between you and us or to enable us to deal with any query you have raised;
  • To allow you to participate in interactive features of our service, when you choose to do so;
  • To notify you about changes to our service;
  • To administer our site and for internal operations, including trouble shooting, data analysis, testing, research, statistical and survey purposes and as part of our efforts to keep our site safe and secure.

This will include your details being included in our Hubspot database.

Disclosure of your information

We may disclose your personal information to any member of our group, which means our subsidiaries, our ultimate holding company and its subsidiaries, provided however that we shall remain responsible for the treatment of such group members of your personal data in accordance with this policy. As stated above, Kneat Solutions has entered into EU Model Clauses with its group entities to ensure any such disclosure is on a legal basis.

Our general policy is not to disclose any personal data to a third party except with your prior consent. However, we may disclose your personal information to third parties:

  • If we sell or buy any business or assets, in which case we may disclose your personal data to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets;
  • If Kneat Solutions or substantially all of its assets are acquired by a third party, in which case personal data held by it about its customers will be one of the transferred assets;
  • If we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation, or in order to enforce or apply our terms of business and other agreements; or to protect the rights, property, or safety of Kneat Solutions, our customers, or others. This may include exchanging information with other companies and organizations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
