Use of Cookies

The DATAWISE Web site use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize DATAWISE pages, or register with DATAWISE site or services, a cookie helps DATAWISE to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same DATAWISE Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the DATAWISE features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the DATAWISE services or Web sites you visit.

Security of your Personal Information

DATAWISE secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. DATAWISE secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
DATAWISE may share your data with other companies in the Datawise Group of Companies, including our holding company and its subsidiaries. We may disclose your personal data where DATAWISE believes it is compelled to do so by law; for the prevention or detection of crime, the capture or prosecution of offenders; and the assessment or collection of tax or duty. We do not require any further consent from you to share your data in such circumstances and DATAWISE will comply as required with any legally binding request that is made of it. In the event we propose to sell or buy any business assets or any part of our group of companies, we may disclose your personal data to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets if relevant, but on a strictly confidential basis. We only disclose or share data within the bounds of the law.
Under GDPR you have the right to access your information and to be aware of and verify the lawfulness of processing and receive
• Confirmation your data is being processed
• Access to personal data
The purpose of the ‘rights of access’ is for the individual to be aware of and verify the lawfulness for processing. An individual will be asked to specify the information the request relates to and this will be free of charge. Where requests are manifestly unfounded or excessive Datawise will charge a ‘reasonable’ amount taking into account the administrative costs for providing the information.
Information will be provided within one month unless the request is complex. In this case Datawise will contact the individual within one month extending the period up to two months with an explanation as to why the extension is necessary.
If any of the personal information that we hold about you is incorrect, you can contact us at info@mydatawise.com and we will update your details as soon as practically possible.
