Legitimate Interest.
Signal’s interest in helping PR and Communications professionals better manage the mentions of their brands, and spokespeople in media is a lawful legitimate interest under both the Data Protection Act and the General Data Protection Regulation.

Where we store your personal data.
The data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside of the European Economic Area (“EEA”). It may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for us or for one of our suppliers. By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy policy.

All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the 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.

How long we store your personal data.
We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data, and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

Your rights.

You have the right to ask us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes. We will usually inform you (before collecting your data) if we intend to use your data for such purposes. You can also exercise the right at any time by contacting us at [email protected].

You have the right to object to the processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which overrides your rights and freedoms.

You also have the right to request restrictions on processing your personal data.  This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios: a) if you want to establish the data’s accuracy, b) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it, c) where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims, or d) you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.

Erasure and Transfer.
You may request erasure of your personal data.  You may ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us to continue to process it.  You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (as above), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law.  Note, however that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.

You may request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party.  We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format.  Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.

You have the right to withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data.  However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you.  We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.

Access to information and information updates.
GDPR gives you the right to access information held about you. Your right of access can be exercised in accordance with GDPR. Any access request may be subject to a fee of £10 to meet our costs in providing you with details of the information we hold about you.

The accuracy of your information is important to us. We’re working on ways to make it easier for you to review and correct the information that we hold about you. In the meantime, if you change email address, or you believe any of the other information we hold is inaccurate or out of date, please email us at: [email protected].
