GDPR Privacy Standard
PriMetrica, Inc. dba TeleGeography (US), and Primetrica, Limited (UK), the Company (“PriMetrica”) is committed to protecting your privacy. This Privacy Standard document explains PriMetrica’s policies and procedures and how we collect, use, process, store, transfer, maintain, and protect your Personal Information.
We may change this Policy from time to time in alignment with new developments in Data Protection.
The collection, use, processing, storage, transfer and sharing of your Personal Information will be limited to your authorization and personal specifications provided to PriMetrica. This policy sets out how we comply with our data protection obligations and seeks to protect personal data relating to customer information, prospect information and research contact information.
Collection of Personal Information
Personal information (“Personal Information”) sometimes known as personal data, as broadly defined by the GDPR, means information relating to you, an individual, who can be identified, either directly or indirectly, from that information. Information that we may collect from you includes your name, email address, company address and phone number, marketing preferences, and details you provide during the process of using our services as contracted.
PriMetrica will not collect any Personal Information about you unless you voluntarily choose to provide it to us or to our business partners. Personal Information which we collect about you may include your opt-in preference for subscribing to our free daily telecom newsletter, industry blogs, marketing offers, notification of events, as well as paid subscriptions provided to you and your employees via our product subscription contract.
How we use your Personal Information
Your Personal Information provided to us voluntarily will be used to provide you with contracted services, processing of orders, additional information about other services or products we offer, registering you for an event, allowing you access to our daily newsletter and periodic blogs as well as notification of industry events in which we may directly or indirectly be a participant.
We may also use the information we collect to improve the content of our website, to notify you of updates to our website, products and services and also to keep you apprised of industry events.
Third party vendors, service providers and affiliates
In order to support and enhance our service provision that we offer our customers, PriMetrica may store, process and share your Personal Information with our affiliates (e.g. partners, service providers, processors, data hosts, etc.) to perform a function, complete a service supply or transaction, or to enhance our customer service. Importantly, information which you provide to us may be transferred to countries outside the European Union (“EU”) to provide these valuable services on our behalf. These countries may not have similar data protection laws to GDPR.
Transfer of your personal data requires your individual consent consistent with the EU data protection legislation. Where PriMetrica uses third party vendors to process Personal Information on its behalf, additional security arrangements are implemented with those organizations to safeguard the security of personal information, including compliance with relevant data privacy laws, terms of confidentiality, and where applicable GDPR. By submitting your personal data, you are agreeing to this transfer, storing and processing of your Personal Information.
Disclosure to Law or Governmental Authorities
PriMetrica may be required to disclose your Personal Information by law, legal process, and/or requests from public and governmental authorities. Also, PriMetrica may be required to disclose your Personal Information for purposes of investigations of threats to national security, compliance with requests from law enforcement, or other issues of public concern, or when we determine that disclosure is reasonably necessary to enforce our terms and conditions or protect our operations, or users.
Retention of your Personal Information
It is your choice to determine information that you wish to receive from PriMetrica such as subscriptions to our free resources, paid services, or marketing information, by specifying your communication preferences posted on our website, marketing information pieces, blogs and other subscription offers.
You are always given the option to “opt out” of receiving certain communications at any time by updating your subscription preferences, selecting the unsubscribe link, or via email request or using the contact form on our website. This provision does not apply to transactional emails related to users’ business relationship with PriMetrica.
Data Security/Data Breaches
PriMetrica has strict security controls, and intrusion detection systems and processes which alert us of a potential intrusion. We also utilize technical and organizational security measures to prevent any unauthorized disclosure or access to your Personal Information.
PriMetrica has implemented training of all employees in the importance of data security and our obligations under GDPR. Our Data Breach Notification Policy provides guidelines for immediately responding to any unauthorized access to our information system or database. Should a data breach occur that may materially impact your Personal Information, you will be notified as soon as possible after detection of the breach. Also, in compliance with GDPR requirements, PriMetrica will report the data breach to the Information Commissioners office.
