Use of Your Data

CommsFM LTD (“we,” “our,” “us”) are the data controller for the purposes of the Data Protection Act 1998 (“DPA”) and the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) (law as of 25 May 2018) in respect of the personal information which we hold about you.

We will not provide you with telecoms and/or IT updates or news on our events unless you consent. To demonstrate your consent, please sign-up here. We will only contact you for direct marketing purposes via e-mail.

You have the right to ask us not to contact you for marketing purposes and/or to withdraw your consent to direct marketing at any time. You can also exercise this right at any time after giving consent by contacting us at dataprotection@commsfm.com or by clicking the unsubscribe link which is included at the bottom of every direct marketing email.

You have the right to obtain details of the personal information we hold about you by making a subject access request in accordance with the DPA or the GDPR. Until 25 May 2018, we may charge a fee of £10 for any requests. After 25 May 2018, we may only charge a reasonable fee where the request is manifestly unfounded or excessive.

Your personal information will be kept secure within CommsFM LTD. We will not transfer your personal details to any third party for the purpose of direct marketing without your permission. We use certain third-party service providers who may have access to your personal data so that they can provide services to us. When this occurs, we have a data protection compliant contract in place with these third parties. Mail Chimp will have access to your e-mail address so that we can send you our updates. Additionally, we will hold your details on our CRM system and therefore our provider, ConnectWise, may also have access to your information.

We shall retain your information in accordance with the timelines outlined in our Data Retention Policy / Privacy Policy which can be found on our website.
