We collect, use and are responsible for certain personal information about you. When we do so we are subject to the General Data Protection Regulation, which applies across the European Union (including in the United Kingdom).
1.1 How and why we use your personal information
Under data protection law, we can only use your personal information if we have a proper reason for doing so, e.g.:
- to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations;
- for the performance of our contract with you or to take steps at your request before entering into a contract;
- for our legitimate interests or those of a third party, a legitimate interest is when we have a business or commercial reason to use your information, so long as this is not overridden by your own rights and interests; or
- where you have given consent.
Generally, we use (process) data on the final two grounds:-
- If we process on the grounds of consent, your consent will be requested at the point at which we collect your data. You may withdraw your consent at any time by contacting us.
- If we process your data on any other basis, our reasons for doing so are set out below.
1.1.1 If you visit our website
When someone visits www.enquirymax.com we use a third party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information (your IP address, browser, and type of device) and details of visitor behaviour patterns (where you joined our site from, the path you take through our site and where you leave). We do this for our legitimate interest to monitor the number of visitors to the various parts of the site and engagement levels, which in turn enables us to make improvements. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.
1.1.2 If you contact us via social media
If you send us a private or direct message via social media, your social media user name and message (including any personal information you choose to include in it) and will be stored and used by enquiryMAX for the legitimate business purposes of monitoring our reputation levels and social media engagement (and taking steps to improve this) and responding to any queries raised in the message. It will not be shared with any other organisations.
1.1.3 If you call our contact numbers
When you call our contact numbers your call may be answered by our managed office provider, Regus. Depending on the nature of your enquiry, Regus may collect person information. We use this information for legitimate business purposes, i.e. address your enquiry to help improve the efficiency and effectiveness of our services.
1.1.4 If you email us
Any email sent to us, including any attachments, may be monitored by us for cybersecurity reasons. Email blocking software may also be used. enquiryMAX has a legitimate interest in using your email address, and any personal data included in your message, to resolve and respond to any issues raised. Your email will be handled in line with our policies, depending on the nature of your enquiry.
We use a third party provider, ZenDesk, to supply and support our Customer Support system, which handles enquiries sent to a support inbox (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org) This data is stored by ZenDesk in the EEA and sometimes the US. If the data is stored in the US it is done so under the EU-US privacy shield framework (which provides protections for an individual’s personal data when it is transferred from the EU to the US). The data is stored indefinitely by Zendesk. Your email may be shared within enquiryMAX so that your enquiry may be dealt with.
Emails sent to named individuals within EnquiryMAX (e.g. email@example.com) will be stored on our systems indefinitely for our legitimate interest of resolving your enquiry and then checking how enquiries have been dealt with, but will not be processed for any other purposes.
In addition to the processing of data above, we may process data we receive from you via email for our legitimate interest to improve operational efficiency (e.g. for training and quality control) and to ensure that our business policies are being followed and adhered to.
1.1.5 If you use our enquiry form
When you submit information via our enquiry form, we collect your name, email address and telephone number. We need to collect this for the legitimate business purpose of processing your enquiry (we collect both email and telephone contact details in case we cannot reach you using one of these).
We may use the data to contact you in the future where we have a legitimate interest in doing so such as to resolve your query, for statistical analysis so that we can monitor and improve the service we provide and for operational efficiency (but you may ask for it to be deleted in accordance with the section below on your rights to manage your personal information).
1.1.6 If you work for a customer
Our customers provide us with names and contact details (email addresses and phone numbers) of people within their business who are involved in managing the enquiryMAX software.
These details are stored within our system for the legitimate business purpose of allowing access to our products. They are retained in the system until the customer chooses to delete them. At the end of the contract with the customer, enquiryMAX will delete the data from the system.
The details are also stored indefinitely on our Capsule CRM System or on Mail Chimp and used for the following legitimate business purposes:
- to contact you regarding the running and management of the customer account;
- to send you emails about updates to our products;
- to send you marketing emails about new products (these emails will contain details of how you can opt out of future marketing communications, or you can opt out using our data preference centre);
- to contact you periodically after the end of a contract to see if you are interested in working with us again.
If we contact you as part of an email campaign going to all our contacts, we may use Mail Chimp (a third party e-mail campaign provider).
1.1.7 If you apply for a role at EnquiryMAX
If you apply for a role listed on our Careers page you will be asked to provide your name, email address, postal address and telephone number. You will also be asked to upload a CV (we cannot be sure what information you will provide to us but it is likely to contain personal information). All information the you provide to us will processed by ourselves and our sub processors, HLC Recruitment Ltd, Louise Hewett Recruitment and Searchability (UK) Ltd (recruitment agents) for the legitimate business purposes of processing your application and fulfilling roles advertised. enquiryMAX will hold this data for a period of 1 year if your application was unsuccessful and use it to contact you in its legitimate interest if any other suitable roles come up, however for successful applicants this data will form part of your human resources record which will be held for a period of 6 Years after your employment with enquiryMAX ends for legitimate interests connected with your employment.
1.1.8 If you make a complaint to us
When we receive a complaint, we create a digital file containing the details of the complaint and store it on our system. The file normally contains the identity of the complainant (together with any contact details provided) and any other individuals involved in the complaint.
We may have to disclose the complainant’s identity to any individuals at enquiryMAX who the complaint relates to. This is inevitable where, for example, the accuracy of a person’s record is in dispute. If a complainant does not want information identifying him or her to be disclosed, we will try to respect that. However, it may not always be possible to handle a complaint on an anonymous basis.
We will only use the personal information we collect for legitimate business purposes, i.e. processing the complaint and checking on the level of service we provide.
We will keep personal information contained in complaint files in line with our retention policy. This means that information relating to a complaint will be retained for six years from closure. It will be retained in a secure environment and access to it will be restricted according to the ‘need to know’ principle.
1.1.9 If we have access to your data via the enquiryMAX software
