Introduction

We would like to thank you for visiting our website. We are happy to facilitate your visit as best as we can, therefore we would like to direct your attention towards our Privacy Notice. This Privacy Notice describes CITIC TELECOM CPC 's (as defined under “Who we are”) use of your personal data.

You can withdraw your consent at any time ("opt out"); see the section "What rights do you have in relation to your data?" below. In case of electronic direct marketing you can opt out by following the instructions in the communication.


Who will we share this data with?

If necessary to perform a service you request from us, to execute an order you have placed or to follow-up on your enquiries, we will share your information with other CITIC TELECOM CPC subsidiaries, affiliates and/or associated companies, or third-party service providers, for example email and hosting providers, suppliers and delivery services.

We (or any third party on our behalf) disclose or transfer personal data to others as follows:

  1. to service providers that provide hosting services and technology service providers, business process outsourcing service providers and call centre service providers;
  2. as required in order to establish, exercise or defend or to protect legal claims, including in relation to our contracts with our clients and in order to protect the rights, property or safety of us, our business, any affiliate, our customers or others, including to legal advisors, government and law enforcement authorities and with other parties involved in, or contemplating, legal proceedings;

  5. payment infrastructure providers and persons from whom we receive or to whom we make payments on your or our customer's behalf;
  6. to prospective sellers or buyers as part of a sale or merger of our or any affiliates business or assets (subject to local laws).


Third party service providers will process your information on behalf of CITIC TELECOM CPC for the purposes above. When we share your data with these parties, we make sure that appropriate safeguards are taken to protect your information.


Where will we send your data?

We may transfer your personal data to our CITIC TELECOM CPC affiliates or third parties (e.g., service providers) overseas, which may involve the transfer of personal data to countries outside the European Union/ European Economic Area which have different data protection standards to those which apply outside the European Union/European Economic Area. For a list of the countries in which we operate, please see here.

Some of these countries are subject to a European Commission adequacy decision. For other countries, we have put in place European Commission approved standard contractual clauses (SCC's) within the CITIC TELECOM CPC group or with the relevant third party to protect this personal data. You have a right to ask us for a copy of the safeguard used (by contacting us via DPO.CITICTelecom-CPC@twobirds.com).


How long do we store your data?

We retain information about you only for as long as we need it for the purposes for which it was collected. After that time your personal data will be erased (unless we have the statutory right or obligation to further keep this data).

For example, if you are a customer of CITIC TELECOM CPC, we will keep your information for the duration of the contractual relationship you have with us, and, to the extent permitted, after the end of that relationship for as long as necessary to perform the purposes set out in this notice. The criteria to determine the storage period are statutory and contractual requirements, the nature of our relationship with you, the nature of the data concerned, technical necessities. Laws may require us to hold certain information for specific periods.

Where we process personal data for marketing purposes or with your consent, we process the data until you ask us to stop and for a short period after this (to allow us to implement your requests). We also keep a record of the fact that you have asked us not to send you direct marketing or to process your data so that we can respect your request in future.


How do we protect your data?

We strive to maintain a high standard of security and have put in place robust technical and organizational measures for the protection of your data in accordance with the current, general state of the art technologies, especially to protect the data against loss, falsification or access by unauthorized third persons. However, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. So, whilst we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our website. Any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your personal data we will use strict procedures and security features to prevent unauthorized access.

We have a number of measures in place to ensure the security of digitally stored personal data, such as a strict policy on access authorization, instructions on how to ensure security of personal data, a back-up procedure and secured connections. We also have adequate measures in place to secure personal data on hard copy and to physically secure back-up tapes of our digital data.

Access to your personal data is restricted to individuals who need such access in order to assist with our telecommunications services. We have strict confidentiality obligations that apply to these individuals. Failure to meet these obligations may result in disciplinary and other actions, including dissolution of a contract, termination of employment and criminal prosecution.


What rights do you have in relation to your data?

You have the right to ask us:

  • for access to and a copy of your personal data that we hold on you;
  • for a copy of the personal information you provided to us and to provide it to you or send to a third party in a commonly used, machine readable format;
  • to update or correct your personal data in order to make it accurate;
  • to delete your personal data from our records in certain circumstances;
  • to restrict the processing of your personal data in certain circumstances;
and you may also:
  • object to us processing your personal data in certain circumstances (in particular, where we don’t have to process the data to meet a contractual or other legal requirement, or where we are using the data for direct marketing;
  • withdraw your consent at any time, where we are using your personal data with your consent. This will not affect our use of your personal data prior to the withdrawal of your consent.

These rights may be limited in some situations – for example, where we can demonstrate that we have a legal requirement to process your data. In some instances, this may mean that we are able to retain data even if you withdraw your consent.

We hope that we can satisfy queries you may have about the way we process your data. If you have any concerns about how we process your data, or would like to opt out of marketing, you can always contact our Data Protection Officer at DPO.CITICTelecom-CPC@twobirds.com, or visit the CITIC Telecom CPC unsubscription page. When addressing us, please always provide your name, address and/or email address as well as information about your request.

You also have a right to file a complaint with the data protection supervisory authority at your member state or country of residence.
