This is the privacy notice of Supernature Limited. In this document, “we”, “our”, or “us” refer to Supernature Limited.
We are registered in Ireland. Our registered office is at 13 Upper Pembroke Street, Dublin 2, Ireland.
This is a notice to inform you of our policy about all the information that we receive from you. It sets out the conditions under which we may process any information that we collect from you, or that you provide to us. It covers information that could identify you (“personal information”) and information that could not. In the context of the law and this notice, “process” means collect, store, transfer, use or otherwise act on information.
We take seriously the protection of your privacy and confidentiality. We understand that all visitors to our website are entitled to know that their personal data will not be used for any purpose unintended by them and will not accidentally fall into the hands of a third party.
We undertake to preserve the confidentiality of all information you provide to us.
Our policy complies with law accordingly implemented, including that required by the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
The law requires us to tell you about your rights and our obligations to you with regards to the processing and control of your personal data. We do this now, by requesting that you read the information provided at http://gdprandyou.ie.
Except as set out below, we do not share, sell, or disclose to a third party, any information collected through our website.
The bases on which we process information about you
The law requires us to determine under which defined bases we process different categories of your personal information, and to notify you of the basis for each category.
If a basis on which we process your personal information is no longer relevant then we shall immediately stop processing your data.
If the basis changes then if required by law we shall notify you of the change and of any new basis under which we have determined that we can continue to process your information.
1. Information we process because we have an obligation to you
When you contact us through our website, request to receive our newsletter, enter a competition, or for another purpose, or otherwise agree to our terms and conditions, an agreement is formed between you and us.
In order to carry out our obligations under that agreement, we must process the information you give us. Some of this information may be personal information.
We may use it in order to:
1.1. verify your identity for security purposes.
1.2. advise and sell services to you.
1.3. provide you with our services.
1.4. provide you with suggestions and advice on products, services and how to obtain the most from using our website.
We process this information on the basis there is an agreement between us, or that you have requested we use the information in order to resolve your enquiry.
Additionally, we may aggregate this information in a general way and use it to provide class information, for example, to monitor our performance with respect to a particular service we provide. If we use it for this purpose, you as an individual will not be personally identifiable.
We shall continue to process this information until the agreement between us ends or is terminated by either party when your enquiry is resolved.
2. Information we process with your consent
Through certain actions when otherwise there is no obligation for us to use your information, such as when you browse our website or ask us to provide you more information about our products or business or submit your details via our contact form or e-mail address, you provide your consent to us to process information that may be personal information.
Sometimes you might give your consent implicitly, such as when you send us a message by e-mail to which you would reasonably expect us to reply.
Except where you have consented to our use of your information for a specific purpose, we do not use your information in any way that would identify you personally. We may aggregate it in a general way and use it to provide class information, for example, to monitor the performance of a particular page on our website.
If you have given us explicit permission to do so, we may from time to time pass your name and contact information to selected associates whom we consider may provide services or products you would find useful. This would be done on an individual basis, and with your permission.
We continue to process your information on this basis until you withdraw your consent or it can be reasonably assumed that your consent no longer exists.
You may withdraw your consent at any time by instructing us at email@example.com or via our website.
3. Information we process for the purposes of legitimate interests
We may process the information on the basis there is a legitimate interest, either to you or to us, of doing so.
Where we process your information on this basis, we do so after having given careful consideration to:
- whether the same objective could be achieved through other means.
- whether processing (or not processing) might cause you harm.
- whether you would expect us to process your data, and whether you would consider it reasonable to do so.
For example, we may process your data on this basis for the purposes of:
- record-keeping for the proper and necessary administration of our business.
- responding to unsolicited communication from you to which we believe you would expect a response.
- protecting and asserting the legal rights of any party.
- insuring against or obtaining professional advice that is required to manage business risk.
- protecting your interests where we believe we have a duty to do so.
4. Information we process because we have a legal obligation
Supernature Limited are subject to the law like everyone else. Sometimes, we must process your information in order to comply with a statutory obligation.
For example, we may be required to give information to legal authorities if they so request or if they have the proper authorisation such as a search warrant or court order. This may include your personal information.
Specific uses of information you provide to us
5. Information provided to a 3rd party working on our behalf, or on the understanding that it will be shared with a third party
Our website allows you to submit information with a view to that information being read, copied, downloaded, or used by other people. We also use 3rd parties to gather information for events, competitions and other initiatives. Examples include:
5.2. engaging with someone authorised to gather information for promotional purposes on behalf of Supernature Limited.
In providing personal information, it is up to you to satisfy yourself about the privacy level of every person who might use it.
We do not specifically use this information except to allow it to be utilised or shared for business operational purposes, and for the purposes for which it was gathered. We do store it, and we reserve a right to use it in the future for these same purposes only.
Once your information enters the public domain, for example posting personal information on our social media pages, we have no control over what any individual third party may do with it. We accept no responsibility for their actions at any time.
Provided your request for deletion is reasonable and there is no legal basis for us to retain it, then at our discretion, we may agree to your request to delete personal information that you have posted. You can make a request by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
6. Information relating to your method of payment
Payment information is not currently taken by us or transferred to us through our website and you should not provide any sensitive payment information in this way. This may change in the near future as we launch our eCommerce platforms to support online sales of our product ranges.
7. Job application and employment
If you send us information in connection with a job application, we may keep it for up to six years in the event that we decide to contact you at a later date.
If we employ you directly or indirectly for the purpose of our business, we collect information about you and your work from time to time throughout the period of your employment or application. This information will be used only for purposes directly relevant to your employment. After your employment or application to us for our business purposes has ended, we will keep your file for six years before destroying or deleting it.
8. Sending a message to our team
When you contact us, whether by telephone, through our website or by e-mail, we collect the data you have given to us in order to reply with the information you need.
We record your request and our reply in order to increase the efficiency of our business.
We keep personally identifiable information associated with your messages, such as your name and email address so as to be able to track our communications with you to provide a high-quality service.
9. Complaint procedure
When we receive a complaint, we record all the information you have given to us. We use that information to resolve your complaint.
If your complaint reasonably requires us to contact another person, we may decide to give to that other person some of the information contained in your complaint. We do this as infrequently as possible, but it is a matter for our sole discretion as to whether we do give information, and if we do, what that information is.
We may also compile statistics showing information obtained from this source to assess the level of service we provide, but not in a way that could identify you or any other person.
