Introduction

Your privacy is very important to us. We care about the privacy of your data and we are committed to protecting it. Accordingly, this Privacy Policy has been developed to explain how we collect, use, communicate, disclose, and make use of personal information.

This notice applies across all websites that we own and operate, all services we provide, and any other services we may offer (for example on-site training or consultation). We are committed to conducting our business in accordance with these principles in order to ensure that the confidentiality of personal information is protected and maintained.

When we say ‘personal data’ we mean identifiable information about you like your name, email, address, email address, mobile number, support queries, community comments and other similar pieces of information that can potentially identify you. If you can’t be identified (for example, when personal data has been aggregated and anonymised) then this notice doesn’t apply.

This notice will be updated every now and again. For significant updates to this policy notice, we will be sure to reach out and let you know in written form.

This Privacy Policy page was last updated on: 10 November 2020

How We Collect Your Data

When you visit our websites or use our services, we collect personal data. The ways we collect it can be broadly categorized into the following:

Information you provide to us directly: When you visit or use some parts of our websites and/or services we might ask you to provide personal data to us. For example, we ask for your contact information when you sign up for a free trial, respond to a job application or an email offer, participate in community forums, join us on social media, take part in training and events, contact us with questions or request support. If you don’t want to provide us with personal data, you don’t have to, but it might mean you can’t use some parts of our websites or services.

Information we collect automatically: We collect some information about you automatically when you visit our websites or use our services, like your IP address and device type. We also collect information when you navigate through our websites and services, including what pages you looked at and what links you clicked on. This information is useful for us as it helps us get a better understanding of how you’re using our websites and services so that we can continue to provide the best experience possible (e.g., by personalizing the content you see). Some of this information is collected using cookies and similar tracking technologies.

Information we get from third parties: The majority of information we collect, we collect directly from you. Sometimes we might collect personal data about you from other sources, such as publicly available materials or trusted third parties like our marketing and research partners. We use this information to supplement the personal data we already hold about you, in order to better inform, personalise and improve our services, and to validate the personal data you provide.

Where we collect personal data, we’ll only process it:

If we don’t collect your personal data, we may be unable to provide you with all our services, and some functions and features on our websites may not be available to you. 

If you’re someone who doesn’t have a relationship with us, but believe that a SELMA user has entered your personal data into our websites or services, you’ll need to contact that SELMA user for any questions you have about your personal data (including where you want to access, correct, amend, or request that the user delete, your personal data).

How We Use Your Data

We use your personal data to operate our websites and provide you with any services you’ve requested, and to manage our relationship with you. We also use your personal data for other purposes, which may include the following:

To communicate with you. This may include:

To support you: This may include assisting with the resolution of technical support issues or other issues relating to the websites or services, whether by email, in-app support or otherwise. For more information on this, please refer to our SLA.

To enhance our websites and services and develop new ones: For example, by tracking and monitoring your use of websites and services so we can keep improving, or by carrying out technical analysis of our websites and services so that we can optimize your user experience and provide you with more efficient tools.

To protect: So that we can detect and prevent any fraudulent or malicious activity, and make sure that everyone is using our websites and services fairly

To market to you: In addition to sending you marketing communications, we may also use your personal data to display targeted advertising to you online – through our own websites and services or through third party websites and their platforms.

To analyse, aggregate and report: We may use the personal data we collect about you and other users of our websites and services (whether obtained directly or from third parties) to produce aggregated and anonymised analytics and reports, which we may share publicly or with third parties.

Our Commitment To Your Privacy

Security

Security is a priority for us when it comes to your personal data. We’re committed to protecting your personal data and have appropriate technical and organisational measures in place to make sure that happens. 

Retention

The length of time we keep your personal data depends on what it is and whether we have an ongoing business need to retain it (for example, to provide you with a service you’ve requested or to comply with an applicable service related to the use of SELMA).

We’ll retain your personal data for as long as we have a relationship with you and for a period of time afterwards where we have an ongoing business need to retain it, in accordance with our data retention policies and practices. Following that period, we’ll make sure it’s deleted or anonymised.
