Purposes and lawful basis of personal data processing
We process personal data for the following reasons:
To Fill Job Vacancies
If you submit a job application either directly or through a recruiter, we will use your information in connection with the specific job that you have applied for and, in the event you are unsuccessful in your application, we will keep your information on file if we think you may be suited in the future should additional vacancies arise.
Sometimes we use publicly available sources of data such as LinkedIn and other employment websites in order to source candidate’s information.
The legal basis for processing your data for recruitment is our Legitimate Interest in operating our business.
Also, prior to the interview process, we will ask whether you need modified access due to the existence of any disability.
Our legal basis for processing this information is a legal obligation.
To provide customer support and access to self-service portals and to provide service delivery
When you become a partner/customer of ours, we collect your data from our portal login pages. We do this in order to provide online and telephone support services to help deliver contracted services to you via the LIBERO Exchange Portal, using email or over the telephone. We use this information to process online requests, solve problems, answer questions and respond to communications from individuals and organisations.
If you have access to parts of our websites or use our online services, you remain responsible for keeping your user ID and password confidential.

For Purposes of Financial Management
We gather and retain business contact details for financial management purposes. Personal information such as names and contact information will be needed to ensure purchase orders, requisitions, invoices and debts are handled appropriately.
Our legal basis for processing financial information is the performance of a contract. The retention period for this type of information is up to 7 years in line with legal and tax regulations.
To send you marketing materials by email
We use your contact to send you marketing and product information. You can opt-out of marketing messages at any time.
Our legal basis for this processing is our Legitimate Interest in promoting our business.
To tell you about our products and services
If you complete an enquiry form on our website or give us your details in person, for example at a conference, we will contact you by email or phone so that we can discuss the products or services in which you have indicated an interest.
As our customer, you may wish to join our user group forums. These are groups of professionals that share a common interest in LIBERO products and services. In such cases, we will store personal contact information such as name & email address to facilitate the organisation of group events and meetings. We may share this personal information amongst other group members to aid in discussions, knowledge sharing and distribute information relating to new products that the group may be interested in. Our lawful basis for processing this information is our legitimate interest in promoting and enhancing our products and services.
To invite you to conferences or exhibitions

Our lawful basis for processing data for these purposes is a legitimate interest.
To host meetings with you at our offices, conferences or exhibitions
We need to process your data in order to manage access and physical security at our offices. At some sites, visitors may be required to provide photo proof of id, but this information will not be stored. Our lawful basis is a legitimate interest to ensure the security of our business premises and authorised attendance at our events.
Additionally, during the COVID-19 pandemic, we will record the dates and times you visit our facility. We will also collect a contact number from you (or the nominated lead, if you are part of a group) in the event that this may be needed to support the contact tracing scheme.
Our lawful basis for processing data for this purpose is a legitimate interest.
We may also ask for dietary restrictions or access requirements that reveal religious beliefs or physical health conditions. Our legal basis for processing these data is your consent which you can withdraw at any time.
Once your access has been arranged, we do not retain this information.
To allow members of the public to participate in customer surveys or feature requests
If you agree to take part in either a feature request or testing project or a research project on behalf of one of our customers, your data may be used to produce a report or set of research findings which may be published either by us or our customer and as such in the public domain.
Our legal basis for this processing is our Legitimate Interest in promoting our business.
To comply with auditing requirements
In order to maintain our certifications and to comply with our legal obligations, we are required to assist and cooperate with external third-party auditors. We may need to share your information as part of these audits.
