For UK, EU and EEA residents: Where we share your personal information with our service providers, these entities will be data processors and will only process personal information under our instructions. Where we disclose your personal information to other third parties, these parties may be (unless otherwise stated) controllers of the information.
VoiceQ Software as a Service (SAAS):
Where you access VoiceQ Services as SAAS, you have the ability to control the use of and access to your VoiceQ projects (VoiceQ Projects), including your personal information, by other users under the VoiceQ Services. VoiceQ Projects, including your personal information, can only be accessed by other users (or teams of users) who have a VoiceQ Cloud account, and have been invited by you or relevant administrator or manager users, to view the VoiceQ Project. Kiwa is not responsible for any access to or use of your VoiceQ Project, including your personal information, by other users where you have granted that user access to your VoiceQ Project, including your personal information.
Where you access the VoiceQ Services via MacOS, you will not have the ability to access and use VoiceQ Projects.
Third party licensing services:
You may also access and use the VoiceQ Services through a third-party licensing service such as ilok. In circumstances where you use third-party licensing services, you may need to purchase a license directly from the relevant provider in order to access the VoiceQ Services via the third-party licensing service management software. Please note that such third party licensing service will have their own privacy notices and we do not accept any responsibility or liability for any use of third party licensing services. Please check any such third party licensing service privacy notices before you submit any personal information to these services.
We may use cookie files and similar tracking technologies such as resettable device identifiers or advertising identifiers from computers or other devices used to access the VoiceQ Website, containing information that can identify the computer you are working from.
Cookies are files with a small amount of data which may include an anonymous unique identifier. Cookies are sent to your browser from a website and stored on your device. We use the following types of cookies and identifiers:
• Session and Preference Cookies: to keep you logged in during your visit, remember your preferred settings and enable forms to be pre populated with your information to aid in the convenience of the use of the VoiceQ Website;
• Security Cookies: for security purposes to protect your use of the VoiceQ Website;
• Advertising Cookies: to track your response to ads and emails; and
• Analytic Cookies: to track traffic patterns to and from the VoiceQ Website, including information like the parts of the VoiceQ Website, and features you use, the time you spend on the different parts or features of the VoiceQ Website, the date, time, and length of your use of the VoiceQ Website to understand what is popular and gets viewed the most (and the least)
We do not control the practices of content providers, advertisers, partners and other third parties connected with the VoiceQ Services and to whom you provide personal information whilst using the VoiceQ Services. The VoiceQ Website and VoiceQ Services may contain links to other sites, which may not follow the same privacy policies that we adopt. We recommend that you check any relevant privacy policies before providing your personal information to any third party.
We use software and systems which analyse information provided through the VoiceQ Website and VoiceQ Services on an aggregated basis. This information is collected and aggregated so you cannot be identified personally and no personal information is stored about you through these analytics.
We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal information from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorized way, altered or disclosed. As no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be completely secure, we cannot ensure the security of any information you transmit or receive through VoiceQ Website and/or VoiceQ Services. While we take precautions to minimize the related risks, these activities are conducted at your own risk.
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
You have the right to make a complaint at any time to the relevant supervisory authority for data protection issues in your country. We would, however, appreciate the chance to deal with your concerns before you approach them, so please contact us in the first instance.
For UK, EU and EEA residents:
We will only retain your personal information for as long as reasonably necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or reporting requirements. To determine the appropriate retention period for personal information, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal information, the purposes for which we process your personal information and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or other requirements.
You may have the following rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal information (in addition to those mentioned above):
(a) right to erasure of your personal information;
(b) right to restriction of processing of your personal information;
(c) right to portability of your personal information;
(d) right to object to processing of your personal information;
(e) right not to be subject to significant automated decision-making (including when based on profiling); and/or
(f) right to withdraw consent to processing of your personal information.
We will handle any request to exercise your rights in accordance with applicable law and any relevant legal exemptions. If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition, where the GDPR applies to our processing you also have the right to lodge a complaint with the relevant supervisory authority (for example ICO in the UK) but we would value the opportunity to resolve the matter ourselves first where possible.
Many of our external third parties are based outside the UK, EU and EEA so their processing of your personal information will involve a transfer of information outside these jurisdictions. The personal information that we collect may therefore be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the EEA or the UK, including countries, which have less strict, or no data protection laws, when compared to those in the EEA or the UK. Whenever we transfer your personal information out of the UK, EU or EEA, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it.
