The personal data we collect may include:
We may collect personal data about you in a number of ways, including:
In some circumstances, we may collect personal data about you from a third party source, such as from a publicly available record or from your organisation or other organisations with whom you have dealings.
We may use your personal data for the following purposes only (“Permitted Purposes”):
We may ask whether you wish to receive marketing from us. We will not send you marketing if you ask us not to. If you change your mind and no longer wish to receive marketing, please let us know so we can remove you from our databases and distribution lists, by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org or your regular contacts.
Depending for which of the above Permitted Purposes we use your personal data, we may process your personal data on one or more of the following legal grounds:
We may share your personal information with certain trusted third parties in accordance with contractual arrangements in place with them, including:
Where necessary, or for the reasons set out in this policy, personal information may also be shared with regulatory authorities, courts, tribunals, government agencies and law enforcement agencies. While it is unlikely, we may be required to disclose your information to comply with legal or regulatory requirements. We will use reasonable endeavours to notify you before we do this, unless we are legally restricted from doing so.
We will take appropriate technical and organisational measures to keep your personal data confidential and secure in accordance with our internal procedures covering the storage, disclosure of and access to personal data. Personal data may be kept on our personal data technology systems, those of our contractors or in paper files.
Your personal data will be deleted when it is no longer reasonably required for the Permitted Purposes or you withdraw your consent (where applicable) and we are not legally required or otherwise permitted to continue storing such data. However, we will retain your personal data where required for Volciuc-Ionescu to assert or defend against legal claims until the end of the relevant retention period or until the claims in question have been settled.
The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation and other applicable data protection laws provide certain rights for data subjects.
You are entitled to request details of the information we hold about you and how we process it. You may also have a right in accordance with applicable data protection law to have it rectified or deleted, to restrict our processing of that information, to stop unauthorised transfers of your personal information to a third party and, in some circumstances, to have personal information relating to you transferred to another organisation. You may also have the right to lodge a complaint in relation to Volciuc-Ionescu’s processing of your personal information with a local supervisory authority.
In general, it is entirely your free will if you provide us with your personal data – there are generally no detrimental effects for you if you choose not to consent or to provide personal data. If you object to the processing of your personal information, or if you have provided your consent to processing and you later choose to withdraw it, we will respect that choice in accordance with our legal obligations.
Your objection (or withdrawal of any previously given consent) could mean that we are unable to perform the actions necessary to achieve the purposes set out above or that you may not be able to make use of the services and products offered by us. Please note that even after you have chosen to withdraw your consent we may be able to continue to process your personal information to the extent required or otherwise permitted by law, in particular in connection with exercising and defending our legal rights or meeting our legal and regulatory obligations.
We must ensure that your personal information is accurate and up to date. If any of the personal data that you have provided to us changes, for example if you change your email address or if you wish to cancel any request you have made of us, or if you become aware we have any inaccurate personal data about you, please let us know by sending an email to your regular contacts or to email@example.com. We will not be responsible for any losses arising from any inaccurate, inauthentic, deficient or incomplete Personal Data that you provide to us.
Volciuc-Ionescu regularly work for global corporations and/or on cross-border matters. We may transfer your personal data abroad if required for the Permitted Purposes as described above. This may include countries which do not provide the same level of protection as the laws of your home country (for example, the laws within the European Economic Area).
We will ensure that any such international transfers are made subject to appropriate or suitable safeguards as required by the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 or other relevant laws. This includes entering into the EU Standard Contractual Clauses which are available here.
We will also require our agents, consultants and sub-contractors and others who are outside the European Economic Area and to whom we transfer your personal data to ensure a similar level of data protection.
When doing so we will comply with applicable data protection requirements and take appropriate safeguards to ensure the security and integrity of your personal data.
