Swivel Secure Limited a private limited company registered in England and Wales, whose registered address is 1200 Century Way, Thorpe Park, Leeds LS15 8ZA (registered company number 04068905). (“Swivel,” “We” or “Us”), is committed to respecting the privacy rights of visitors to the Swivel web site at www.swivelsecure.com and our associated customer support portal at supportdesk.swivelsecure.com (the “Site”). While visiting the Site, We may ask you (“You” or “Your”) to provide information that personally identifies you (“Personal Information”) for purposes of interacting with the Site.

We will take measures to ensure that the Personal Information You submit to Us remains private and is used only for the purposes as set out in this Privacy Policy. To further the protection of Your Personal Information, We have adopted a set of guidelines (outlined below) to describe the Personal Information we collect about You, why We collect it, how We use it and when We share it with third parties.

This Privacy Policy has been developed with the recognition that Internet technologies are rapidly evolving. Accordingly, this Privacy Policy is subject to change without prior notice. Any such changes will be posted on this page. Please see the Effective Date stated at the conclusion of this Privacy Policy.

What kind of information do We collect from You?

We only collect Personal Information that You submit to Us via our “contact us” section. The data collected via our form will be Your name, company name, email address, phone number and country. We may also collect your IP address, as set out below.

Demo Registration

Where You wish to set up a demo, We may collect the Personal Information including Your first name, last name, email address, mobile number and company name. These details will be stored for 14 days both locally on Our web server and on our cloud demo server instance to allow the demo to work. After 14 days details stored locally on the web server and on the cloud demo server will be deleted.

How do We use Your Personal Information?

We may use Your Personal Information for the following purposes:

    • To manage and administer the Site;
    • To improve Your user experience of the Site;
    • To provide and improve the services We provide to You;
    • To comply with legal obligations imposed on Us under applicable legislation;
    • To send you marketing emails; and
    • To undertake sales purposed telemarketing.

Our legal basis for processing Your Personal Information

In order to process and use Your Personal Information, we rely on one of more of the following legal bases:

  • Processing is necessary for the performance of the services We provide to You; or
  • Processing is necessary for the purposes of a legitimate business interest pursued by Us; or
  • You have given explicit consent to the processing of Your Personal Information for a specified business purpose, such as marketing

When might We disclose Your Personal Information?

Except to the extent required by any applicable law or governmental or judicial body, We will not disclose Your Personal Information to any third party other than to (i) a regulator; (ii) to Our sales partners Swivel Secure Europe and Swivel Secure Inc. for the purposes of providing You with services and support; and (iii) third party suppliers, resellers and distributors to enable Us to provide services to You.

We do not provide specific Personal Information to unaffiliated third parties without Your consent. However, We may share aggregate, non-personally identifiable information with our business partners and other affiliated third parties (i.e., the number of users who have visited the Site on a specific day, etc.). Swivel may match aggregated user information with third party data. Also, We may disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe our services to potential advertisers, partners and other third parties, and for other lawful purposes.

It should be noted, however, that this Privacy Policy only addresses the use and dissemination of information that We collect from You. To the extent that You disclose any information to other parties, through other web sites on the Internet linked to the Site, different policies may apply. Since Swivel Secure does not control the privacy policies of third parties, You are subject to the privacy customs and policies, if any, of that third party, and Swivel Secure shall not be responsible for the use or dissemination of Your Personal information by that third party.

Therefore, We encourage You to ask questions before You disclose Your Personal Information to others.

Transferring Your Personal Information outside of the EEA

To deliver services to You, it is sometimes necessary for Us to share your Personal Information outside the European Economic Area (EEA), for example with Our resellers located outside of the EEA. These transfers are subject to special rules under European and UK data protection law. These non-EEA countries do not have the same data protection laws as the United Kingdom and EEA. If you would like further information regarding the mechanisms We use to comply with data protection law, please contact Us.

Storage and Transfer of Your Personal Information

Your Personal Information is stored in either Microsoft Offce 365, our CRM (SalesForce) and Our support software program (Team Support). Access to these systems is limited to registered technology, which must be registered with our Mobile Device Management system. This allows Us to remotely block or wipe the device where your Personal Information is stored should it be lost or stolen.
We also hold physical records containing Personal Information, which are protected by being stored in locked cabinets and by access being limited to authorised personnel only. We also operate a clear desk policy to assist in protecting Personal Information. We will only hold Your Personal Information for the duration that is necessary to carry out the data processing purposes set out above, or where we are required to store it for longer under applicable laws.

Subject to certain limitations, You have the right to:

  • Access Personal Information held about You free of charge;

    • You contest the accuracy of the Personal Information held by Us (for a period enabling Us to verify the accuracy of the information);
    • Our processing activities are unlawful;
    • or Your Personal Information is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected by Us;
