The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force from 25 May 2018. The GDPR is a standardized user data protection framework which operates across Europe and imposes obligations on organizations that handle the personal data of people in the European Economic Area.
This Privacy Notice explains in detail who we are and the types of personal data we may collect about you when you interact with us. It also explains how we’ll store and handle that data, and keep it safe.
We are DaisyChainPR Limited, a PR and Social Media Agency:
Business Address: 17 Westend, Dursley, Gloucestershire, GL11 6JD
Company number 10640103
DaisyChain PR Limited undertakes ethical PR and where any data is stored, it is only used for legitimate business interests. This is our lawful basis for processing personal data. So for example if you are a journalist or blogger we may have your email address in order to send you news about a topic you may be interested in. If you have supplied your phone number, we may also hold this for the purposes of contacting you in relation to any topics we are working on together or to advise you of news stories, product information, press events and other media related communications. In some cases we may hold your address if we have requested this in order to send something such as a press pack or sample that cannot be sent digitally.
If you submit your name, telephone number and/or email address via the Contact Us form on our website, we will only use these details in order to reply to your specific query.
LEGITIMATE INTEREST – OUR LAWFUL BASIS FOR PROCESSING PERSONAL DATA:
Recital 47 of the GDPR allows for the processing of personal information for our legitimate business interests in terms of press communications. “Legitimate Interests” means the interests of our company in conducting and managing our business to enable us to offer you the best services and information.
For example, we have an interest in making sure our communications are relevant for you, so we may process your information to send you communications that are tailored to your interests in your business. We believe this processing is in your interest as well.
We may hold some personal details of press, bloggers and influencers on our database for any of the following purposes:
To update you about client news/press information relevant for your publication/blog
To inspire and inform you about new and interesting products, messages, news and services available from our clients and relevant to you.
To provide information about/to invite you to press and media events
When we process your personal information based on 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. Will not share your Personal Data with any 3rd parties.
If you do not wish to receive any further information from DaisyChain PR Limited please email sarah@daisychainprlimited and we will remove you from our database.
