Typically, we obtain your personal data from you directly, including through your use of this website, but more occasionally, we will obtain your personal data from a third-party source, for example, we may collect information from our agents and advisors; the company for whom you work; information or service providers; and publicly available records.

What about personal data relating to others which you provide to Sliide?

If you provide information to us about someone else (such as one of your associates, directors or employees, or someone with whom you have business dealings) you must ensure that you are entitled to disclose that information to us and that the person understands that we, without taking any further steps, may process that information in accordance with this Notice.

What personal data does Sliide collect from (and about) you?

If we collect and use personal data about you, the types of data we collect will vary in nature depending on the circumstances and purpose of processing. Here are some illustrative and non-exhaustive examples:

  • personal data to monitor your use of our website: see the ‘website cookies and trackers’ section below.

  • personal data which may identify you: photographs and video, passport and/or driving licence details, electronic signatures;
  • personal data to process any payment we might need to make to you personally: bank account details, HMRC numbers and references (where applicable);

Why do we need to collect and use your personal data?

If we collect and use personal data about you, we will do so for one or more of a number of reasons, the primary purpose being business management. These are likely to involve the use of your personal data in one or more of the following (non-exhaustive) ways:

  • to engage and contact suppliers;

  • to carry out internal reviews, investigations and audits;
  • to conduct business reporting and analytics;
  • to help measure performance and improve our services;

  • for the prevention and detection of crime.

What is Sliide’s lawful basis for processing your personal data?

Under the GDPR, we must identify a lawful basis for processing your personal data, and that basis may vary according to the type of personal data processed and the individual to whom it relates, and the nature of the processing.

Performance of a contract with you (where applicable)

If you have a direct contractual relationship with us, we are entitled to process the personal data we require in order to fulfil our obligations under our contract with you.

We may also process your personal data on the basis that it is necessary for our legitimate interest in the effective management and running of our firm, which may include (but is not limited to):

  • engaging suppliers and supplier personnel;
  • interviewing prospective staff members;
  • ensuring that our systems and premises are secure and running efficiently;
  • for regulatory and legislative compliance and related auditing and reporting;
  • for marketing and general business development purposes;
  • for insurance purposes;
  • to facilitate, make and receive payments, and to collect money owing to us.

Compliance with a legal obligation to which Sliide is subject

Special category personal data

We do not process any special category data.

To whom do we disclose your personal data?

We will disclose your personal data internally within Sliide. We may also disclose your personal data to third parties (outside Sliide), but only when it is necessary to do so, and subject to our obligations of confidentiality.

We may also need to disclose your personal data in the course of business to our partners who operate in the UK and in the USA, and we take suitable steps as required by law to ensure that, where the other party concerned is a data processor, they have appropriate data security systems in place and process data solely in accordance with our instructions.

Is your personal data transferred outside the EEA, and if so what safeguards are in place?

Some of the third party service providers we use and some of our consultants are based in, or carry out their activities in, countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA). If in the course of providing services to us any of these service providers process personal data, we have made sure to include in their contract with us standard clauses approved by the European Commission (sometimes called ‘the EU Model Clauses’) to ensure that their processing meets the security standards required within the EU. You can view the Commission’s decision which includes these standard clauses via this link: http://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/EN/TXT/PDF/?uri=CELEX:32010D0087&from=en

How do we protect your personal data?

We have robust security arrangements in place to guard against unauthorised access, use, alteration or destruction of, or the accidental loss of, your personal data. We take appropriate technical and organisational security measures and have rules and procedures in place to ensure that any personal data we hold is not accessed by anyone unauthorised to access it, and where applicable to ensure client confidentiality. We have in place, and strictly comply with, an information security policy which determines the security standards we use to protect your personal data.

When we use third-party organisations to process your personal data on our behalf, we require them to have appropriate security arrangements in place, they must comply with our contractual requirements and instructions, and they must ensure compliance with the GDPR and any other relevant data protection legislation, all as required under the GDPR.

How long will your personal data be retained by Sliide?

It is our policy to retain your personal data for no more than the length of time required for the specific purposes for which it is processed by us and which are set out in this Notice. However, we may be obliged to keep your personal data for a longer period, for example, where required by our legal and regulatory obligations, or in order to ensure we have effective IT back-up systems. In such cases, we will ensure that your personal data will continue to be treated in accordance with this Notice, we will restrict access to any archived personal data, and ensure that all personal data is held securely and kept confidential.

Website cookies and trackers

The only cookies we ourselves use on our website are the following session registration cookies:

  • When you fill in your details on our registration form (for example where you wish to register to receive communications or other services from us), this cookie remembers the details that you load into the registration form so that if you make a mistake or have to redo the form, your details are not all erased (which could be annoying and inconvenient). The cookie is a ‘session’ cookie that is deleted after you have completed and submitted the form. We assume that you are happy with this cookie but if you wish to withhold your consent you can do so by modifying your browser settings to block cookies – please see http://www.wikihow.com/Adjust-Browser-Settings.
  • Our email marketing messages may direct you to a web page which uses an ASPSESSIONID% cookie. This cookie allows the page to remember certain settings you use. This cookie is temporary and is deleted each time you close your browser.

For more information about cookies generally, please visit All About Cookies.

We also use Google Analytics, the web analysis service provided by Google. Google utilises the data collected to track and examine the use of our website, to prepare reports on its activities which we review and it shares those reports with other Google services. Google may also use the data collected to contextualise and personalise the ads on its own advertising network. The personal data that is collected is cookie and usage data, and that processing takes place in the USA under Google’s standard terms and privacy policy, which you will find here. You can opt out of Google Analytics cookies on the cookie pop-up you see before viewing our website.
