PRIVACY POLICY

Privacy Policy and Information Notice

Thank you for visiting our website (“Site”).  Georgiou-Botaris Group ("GBG" or the “Company”) is committed to treating the personal and corporate information of our Site users, customers, and vendors with respect and sensitivity.

By continuing to use our Site, you accept the terms of this Privacy Policy and our Terms of Use policy.

This Privacy Policy (together with our Terms of Use and any other policies referenced) identifies how we will collect and process any personally identifiable information, such as your name, email, address, financial account information, etc., that we collect from you, or that you provide to us.

As our services evolve and we perceive the need or desirability of using your personal data collected in other ways, we may from time to time amend this Privacy Policy.  The effective date appears at the end of this Privacy Policy.  We encourage you to check our Site frequently to review the current Privacy Policy in effect and any changes that may have been made to it.

By providing your Personal Data to us in any format (e.g., via email, telephone, fax, or in person) and/or continuing to use any of our services or visiting our Site you accept and consent to the practices described in this Privacy Policy and Information Notice.

WHAT PERSONAL DATA DOES THE COMPANY COLLECT?

We collect personal information that you enter on our Site or otherwise volunteer to us when you contact us to, among other things, or request information.  You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features.

For purposes of this Policy, “Personal Data” means information (whether stored electronically or in paper based filing systems) relating to a living individual who can be identified from that data (or from that data and other information in our possession).

 

Personal Data can be:

  • factual – such as a name, address, email, phone, or date of birth

  • sensitive – such as financial account information, protected health or medical details or information about your racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or similar beliefs, physical or mental health or condition or sexual life; or

  • opinion – such as the results of a self-assessment test.

GBG collects only that Personal Data that is relevant for the purposes for which the data is requested.  GBG does not use your Personal Data in any way that is incompatible with the purposes for which it was collected or for which you have consented.

You can visit our Site without telling us who you are or revealing any Personal Data.  But in some circumstances we may ask you for and you may submit Personal Data, which may include:

OUR STORAGE OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA

GBG uses reasonable and appropriate measures to protect your Personal Data from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction, taking into due account the risks involved in the processing undertaken and the nature of the Personal Data we collect.

We will keep your personal data for as long as we need it, or as otherwise prescribed by law, for the purposes set out above.  This period will vary depending on your interactions with us.  We may also keep a record of correspondence with you (for example if you have made a complaint about a product) for as long as is necessary to protect us from a legal claim.

INFORMATION WE RECEIVE FROM OTHER SOURCES

 

We will combine this information with information you give to us and information we collect about you. We will use this information and the combined information for the purposes set out above (depending on the types of information we receive).

PROTECTING CHILDREN’S PRIVACY

 

We are strongly committed to protecting the safety and privacy of children who visit our Site.  Our Site is not designed nor is it intended to be used by children under 13, and we  do not knowingly collect personal information online from children under 13 and have adopted techniques to ensure compliance with this Privacy Policy and the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (“COPPA”).   Our Site includes content that we believe to be unsuitable for children under 13, and we encourage all parents to talk to their children about online safety and to monitor their children’s use of the Internet.

ADDITIONAL POLICIES IN COMPLIANCE WITH THE EEA PRIVACY LAWS

 

In addition to the other policies described in this Privacy Policy, residents of the European Union or the EEA are afforded the following additional rights and protections as required by the General Data Privacy Regulation (“GDPR”).  The additional rights and protections set forth in this section of this Policy apply only to residents of the European Union or the EEA.

GDPR DEFINITIONS

THE FOLLOWING ADDITIONAL DEFINITIONS APPLY TO THIS SECTION OF THE PRIVACY POLICY:

“Controller” means the Company which is the organization that determines the purposes for which, and the manner in which, any Personal Data is Processed and used in its business.

“Processor” means any Person Processing Personal Data.

“Person” means a natural person, corporation, association, organization, partnership, or other legal entity.

“Processing” is any activity that involves use of the Personal Data. It includes, without limitation, obtaining, recording or holding the Personal Data, or carrying out any operation or set of operations on the Personal Data including organizing, amending, retrieving, using, disclosing, erasing or destroying it. Processing also includes transferring Personal Data to third parties.

THE LEGAL BASIS FOR PROCESSING YOUR PERSONAL DATA

 

In order to comply with the GDPR, we are required to set out the legal basis for the processing of your Personal Data.  In accordance with the purposes for which we collect and use your Personal Data, as set out above, the legal basis for processing your Personal Data will typically be one of the following:

  • our own legitimate business interests, or the legitimate business interests of our third party partners, promoters, affiliates, distributors, suppliers, vendors, and subcontractors, such as, for example, providing direct marketing to our customers of our products and services that we think would be of interest, permitting prospective employees to search and apply for job opportunities, handling inquiries from our promoters, affiliates, distributors, vendors, and customers, or other instances where we have carried out a legitimate interests assessment and have established an existing legitimate interest;

  • the performance of a contract that we have in place with you;

  • your consent where appropriate; or

  • compliance with our legal obligations, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.

WHERE WE STORE YOUR PERSONAL DATA

 

The data that we collect from you is stored on our servers.  If you are a resident of the EEA, your Personal Data may be transferred within or outside the EEA to areas where privacy laws may be less strict than in the EEA .  By submitting your Personal Data, you agree to this transfer, storing, and  processing.  We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your Personal Data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk.  Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorized access.

ADDENDUM TO HOW LONG WE STORE YOUR PERSONAL DATA

 

In some cases, there is a legal requirement to keep Personal Data for a minimum period of time.  Except in those circumstances, we do not keep your Personal Data for any longer than is necessary for the purposes for which the Personal Data was collected or for which it is to be further processed.

YOUR RIGHTS WITH RESPECT TO YOUR PERSONAL DATA

 

Subject to certain exceptions, you have the following rights with respect to your Personal Data:

  • To receive a copy of the Personal Data that we hold about you;

  • To request that any inaccurate or incomplete Personal Data be corrected or supplemented;

  • To have your Personal Data erased, unless we have a legitimate reason to retain the Personal Data (such as if we are required to do so for legal reasons); and

  • To ask us not to process your Personal Data for a particular purpose, including for marketing.

All of these rights are subject to certain conditions and exemptions.  For example, GBG will not be obligated to erase your Personal Data if we need to retain it to protect ourselves in the event of a legal claim.

To exercise any of these rights,  please submit a written request to us using the contact information set forth below. The Company reserves the right to charge a fee in dealing with such a request as permitted by applicable law and regulations.
