With this policy, we inform you that in cases in which we are required to do so by law, we apply the GDPR rules regarding the collection, storage, use, handling, transfer and deletion of personal information. In all other cases, we apply applicable laws (including CCPA, where applicable) and internal rules and policies.

  1. What Is The GDPR

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (EU) 2016/679 is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy, which came into effect on the 25th of May, 2018.

The GDPR applies to all organizations operating within the EU and processing “personal identifiable data” of EU residents.

To learn more about GDPR, please, visit official General Data Protection Regulation website.

  1. What Data We Collect and How We Collect It

There are two ways, in which Pexly can obtain personal data:

  • From this website, while being a Controller in GDPR terms;
  • From its Clients under the framework of relevant legal binding agreements, while being a Processor in GDPR Terms

Therefore, there are two distinct groups of Data subjects: users of Pexly’s official web-site and Pexly’s Clients.

As per the GDPR definition, ‘personal data’ means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘data subject’); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

For both parties, unless otherwise  specified in a separate agreement between Pexly and it’s Client (i.e. Data Protection Agreement) in most cases this means:

  • Name;
  • Email;
  • Telephone number

Being a Controller, we collect your data via online inquiry forms on our website, emailed inquiries and correspondence, or phone conversations.

  1. Legal Basis for Processing the Data and Key Principles of Data Usage and Storage

Using Pexly’s services to manage your customers’ data means that you have engaged Pexly as a data processor to carry out certain processing activities on your behalf.

According to  Article 28 of the GDPR, the relationship between the controller and the processor are regulated by the Data Processing Agreement, which we put in place with every Client.

With this said, responsibility regarding the accuracy and completeness of provided personal information, including the correctness and validity of the name, e-mail and other information that the data subject provides to Pexly lies with the Controller (being Pexly’s Client).

Additionally, Pexly acts as the data controller of the personal data we collect about you, our customer, in relations with its contractors.

Being driven by the GDPR regulation, we would like to provide you with clean and clear information on how exactly your data are used, in plain and simple language.

  • Which data we collect and/or process? Only Personal data that is necessary for us to perform our contract with you (GDPR Article 6(1)(b)).

We process your personal data to meet our obligations under the law (GDPR Article 6(1)(c)) — this primarily involves financial data and information that we need to meet our accountability obligations under the GDPR.

We process your personal data for our legitimate interests in line with GDPR Article 6(1)(f). From time to time we may send you marketing information in case we believe that it is beneficial to you as a client.

  • What are these ‘legitimate interests’ we talk about?
  1. Improving our services (using new tools, processes) to help you  reach your goals.
  2. Customize and enrich your experience on our Site
  3. To identify patterns that we can use in our marketing strategy and to help us develop, administer, support and improve our services and features and adverts
  4. To conduct reviews that assist us in the improvement and optimisation of our Site and our Services
  5. To administer our Site and Services and for internal operations, including troubleshooting, data analysis, testing, research, statistical and survey purposes; and as part of our efforts to keep our Site safe and secure
  6. Making sure that your personal data and Pexly’s systems are safe and secure.
  7. Responsible marketing of our services and its features, as in providing direct marketing advertisements and communications to you via email, text, post or telephone or via our selected third parties.
  8. Monitoring the effectiveness of our direct marketing communications and your responses to it
  9. Other legitimate interests and purposes compliant with GDPR provisions
  • Choice and Consent

For Clients, the conditions for the transfer, use and storage of personal data are governed by a separate legal agreement of the parties

  • Use, retention, and disposal

Use, retention and disposal of personal data are governed by GDPR rules and regulations and/or separate agreements with Clients (Data Controllers)

  • Acces, Data Storage and Security:

We confirm that Pexly tries to provide the appropriate level of security to cover all possible risks presented by processing, in particular from accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, unauthorized disclosure, etc.

  • Any natural person acting under the authority of Pexly either as the controller or the processor who has access to personal data does not process them except on instructions from the controller, unless he or she is required to do so by law.
  • We have appropriate Data Access and System Access Controls in place as well as Data Backup.
  • We have implemented a wide range of rules and policies regarding information security, access to information and rules for the use of information and privacy. On top of existing standards and procedures, we are ISO 9001 and ISO 27001 certified.
  • Sharing and Disclosing Your Personal Data. We retain access to all personal information that we have collected from you or about you. Once in our possession, we will be responsible for that information and that information will be subject to any privacy terms or policies that we have in place.

If our business is sold or merged, or if we sell or buy any businesses or assets, we may disclose your personal data to the prospective seller or buyer of such businesses or assets. We will make sure that any such transfer is done in a secure way.

If we offer or supply a service to you that is provided on our behalf by a third party we may have to pass your information to them in order to deliver the service. By using this Site you consent to us providing your information to  third parties authorised by us to provide such services. We may also use third parties to provide services on our behalf which may include processing (but not using themselves) your information e.g. to complete partial addresses or to enrich the information we hold about you. In either case, we will not pass your information to anyone who is not also subject to adequate privacy commitments in our contract with them and we will not allow the third party to use your information for marketing purposes without your consent.

We also may reveal your personal data to any local or international public authorities, if they have a legal right to ask and obtain such information.

We will not otherwise disclose, sell or distribute your information to any third party without your permission unless we are required to do so by law or to obtain professional advice. 

  • Storing Your Personal Data. We retain Personal Data no longer  than it is necessary and we have regular reviews and proper processes in place. In cases when you provide us with your consent to use your details for direct marketing, we will keep such data until you notify us otherwise and/or withdraw your consent.
