This Privacy Notice describes our policies and practices regarding the collection and use of your personal data and sets out your privacy rights. We recognise that information privacy is an ongoing responsibility, and so we will (from time to time) update this Privacy Notice as we develop new personal data practices or adopt new privacy policies.

How we collect and use (process) your personal information
Eurolink Connect collects personal information about its customers, staff, and suppliers, including (but not limited to) your name, address, email, and phone number.
For our Customers, we use this information to provide you with goods and services you have requested or purchased from us, for billing and account management, and occasionally to communicate with you about other related services that Eurolink Connect offer that may assist you in your business.
For our Prospective Customers, we may use your personal information for our legitimate business interests. This means the interests of our company in conducting and managing our business to enable us to give you the best service, which we believe would also provide benefit for your business, and can also apply to processing that is in your interests as well. For example, we have an interest in making sure our marketing is relevant for you, so we may process your information to send you marketing that is tailored to your business interests or needs. When we process your personal information for our legitimate interests, we make sure to consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative), and your rights under data protection laws. 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).
For our Trusted Partners, we use this information to undertake the provision of goods and services with you for our own and our Customers’ business needs and for billing and account management.
Eurolink Connect offer content via our blog and website, and we often link to news feeds and/or blogs produced by others. If you opt to read the content shared from a third-party, you will be leaving our website and therefore Eurolink Connect is not responsible or liable for content provided by these third-party websites or for the personal information they may happen to gather from you.
In addition to online content, we also publish and share a quarterly newsletter with our contacts. If you no longer wish to receive the newsletter you can express your preference by unsubscribing via the link provided at the base of the newsletter, or please contact us at the Data Protection contact details given above. When we send our Quarterly Newsletter by email, we use web beacons (single-pixel gifs) to track behaviour such as who opened the emails and who clicked the links. Web beacons allow us to collect information about when you open the email, your browser or app used to open the email, and other similar details. This helps us to understand who is reading our Newsletters to improve our content and distribution list.
We do not sell personal information to anyone and only share it with our trusted partners who are facilitating the delivery of Eurolink Connect’s services, including the storage of information on our cloud-hosted systems.
If you correspond with us by email, the postal service, or any other form of communication, we may retain such correspondence and the information contained in it and use it to respond to your inquiry, to notify you of other services, or to keep a record of your complaint.
If you wish to ‘opt-out’ – to have Eurolink Connect remove your personal information or otherwise refrain from communicating with you – please contact us at the Data Protection contact details given above.
Calls into and out of our offices are recorded. We may use the recorded calls to train our employees and help us deliver quality services to our customers. When a call is recorded we collect a recording of the conversation, the phone number, and the length of the call.
Some personal information is necessary so that we can enter into a contract with you and supply you with the services you purchase or request from us, as well as to authenticate you so that we know it is you and not someone else. Without such data, it is likely that we would not be able to enter into a contract with you.

Reasonable access to your personal data will be provided at no cost to you upon request made to us via the Data Protection contact details given above. If access cannot be provided within a reasonable timeframe, we will provide you with a date when the information will be provided. If for some reason access is denied, we will provide an explanation as to why access has been denied.

Security of your information
To help protect the privacy of data and personally identifiable information you share with us, we maintain physical, technical, and administrative safeguards, governed by our ISO/IEC27001:2013 accredited Information Security Management System.
We update and test our security technology on an ongoing basis, including undertaking an internal audit programme and regular external audits, including (but not limited to) cybersecurity-focused Penetration Testing.
We restrict access to your personal data to those employees who need to know that information in order to provide goods or services to you. In addition, we train our employees about the importance of confidentiality and maintaining the privacy and security of your information. We commit to taking appropriate disciplinary measures to enforce our employees’ privacy responsibilities.
