In compliance with EU data protection laws, we, our users, vendors and partners need your consent to set cookies on your device to use your search, location and browsing data to understand your interests and personalise and measure ads on our products. We may also provide personalised ads to you on our partners’ products.
Protecting the security and privacy of your personal data is important to Sphere. EmergencyResponder operates its website in compliance with applicable laws on data privacy protection and data security.
We respect your privacy and duly protect the personal data we process about you (“Personal Data”). All processing of Personal Data is carried out in accordance with General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”).
The following describes how we collect, process and share your Personal Data.
We use your Personal Data for providing and improving the Service. By using the Service, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this Policy.
Unless otherwise defined herein, terms used in this Data Protection Policy have the same meanings as in our Terms and Conditions, accessible at spherestandards.org.
Information We Collect and How We Use It
The term “personal information” means information about an identifiable individual, including name, address, email address, phone number and other information relating to an individual.
We may collect personal information when you:
Newsletters, Text Messages and Promotional Materials: When you register to use the Service, you may also sign up to receive our email newsletter, SMS text messages and other communications. When you subscribe to our newsletter, SMS text messages or other communications, we will use your email address or phone number to send you information about our product and service offerings or those of our marketing partners. You may remove yourself from our newsletter list by clicking the “unsubscribe” link that appears at the bottom of each of our e-mails. If you have signed up to receive SMS text messages, you may unsubscribe by following the opt-out instructions provided in your SMS messages.
Surveys and Customer Research: From time to time, we may offer you the opportunity to participate in one of our surveys or other customer research. We use this information to help us understand our customers and to enhance our product and service offerings and promotions.
Contact Us: When you send email or other communications, we may use and retain those communications in order to process your inquiries, respond to your requests and improve the Emergency Responder Services.
Disclosure of Personal Information
We will not disclose, trade, rent, sell or otherwise transfer your personal information, without your consent, except as otherwise set out herein.
Service Provider Arrangements: We may transfer (or otherwise make available) your personal information to our affiliates and other third parties who assist us with providing the Emergency Responder Services. For example, we may use service providers to host our Website and send advertisements communications on our behalf. Your personal information may be maintained and processed by our affiliates and other third party service providers in Ireland, the US or other jurisdictions. Our service providers are given the information they need to perform their designated functions, and we do not authorise them to use or disclose personal information for their own purposes. For additional information about our third-party service providers, contact us as set out below.
Sale of Business: We may transfer any information we have about you as an asset in connection with a merger or sale (including transfers made as part of insolvency or bankruptcy proceedings) involving all or part of CQV Limited or as part of a corporate reorganisation or stock sale or other change in corporate-control.
Legal: We, our affiliates and our international service providers may provide your personal information in response to a search warrant or other legally valid inquiry or order, or to an investigative body in the case of a breach of an agreement or contravention of law, or as otherwise required by applicable law of the United Kingdom. We may also disclose personal information where necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, as part of the administration of our loss prevention program, or as otherwise permitted by law.
When you access the Services, our servers automatically log certain information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website. These server logs may include information such as your web request, Internet Protocol address, MAC address, location (such as GPS signals sent by a mobile device) or information that can be used to approximate your location (such as a cell ID), browser type, browser language, connection history, and the date and time of your request.
We may present links in a format that enables us to keep track of whether these links have been followed. We use this information to improve the quality of our content and services.
We have implemented reasonable administrative, technical and physical safeguards in an effort to protect against unauthorized access, use, modification and disclosure of personal information in our custody and control. Unfortunately, no collection or transmission of information over the Internet or other publicly accessible communications networks can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, and therefore, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any such information.
We take reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information we process is accurate, complete, and current, but we depend on our users to update or correct their personal information whenever necessary.
Accessing and Updating Personal Information
You have the right to access, update, and correct inaccuracies in your personal information in our custody and control, subject to certain exceptions prescribed by law. You may request access, updating and corrections of inaccuracies in your personal information by emailing or writing to us at the contact information set out below. We may request certain personal information for the purposes of verifying the identity of the individual seeking access to their personal information records.
